Summer transfers
at 09:01 25 Apr 2021

Even under Mick as well as Jewell, Keane and Magilton, we found that we could rarely sign the Plan A targeted players. I seem to remember Keane desperately wanting the excellent Shaun Derry for example and not getting him, then players like Nugent, Austin, Joel Ward, Jamie Vardy (!) too many to list.

Some of these were down to money and not being able to offer as much in fees or wages, but I also remember location, aspiration and other factors. I just hope we have a decent list of Plan B and Plan C players ready to go if needed.

5 points off play offs with 5 to play as it stands
at 09:38 18 Apr 2021

(4 points + our atrocious G/D)

Some teams would be looking at that and thinking, we're gonna p1ss these last few games and sneak in there

Paul Cook's philosophy
at 19:18 16 Apr 2021

I watched this interview when we appointed him and was so impressed by eveything he said. It's well worth listening to even as background noise.



A lot of the things that happened this week go completely against the things he states he believes in: he says adding more than 3 or 4 players in a window is a disaster, players deserve time and patience to improve, a manager's main success should be deemed by the players they improve etc. Now I think, hope, he will do very well for us but I wonder if the added pressure from the takeover expectations is going to make him question all the things which brought him success - a typical banter era thing to happen to us.

“We are not in a position to trigger that extension”

Pre-takeover this would make sense regarding the financial side, but what does it mean? Just a nice way of saying you’re not wanted here?

The main criticism of Ashton
at 17:53 13 Apr 2021

Seems to be he apparently decimated the medical side of the club bringing in staff who were not good enough or investing in things that caused massive amounts of injuries within the squad.

Will he fit in here or improve it

They always seemed a nightmare on Football Manager yet in the interview Brett talks about having a system where talented Americans could come here for the first team and we send our youngsters over there to develop

Is the new CEO the most important hire we have made in recent history?
at 19:36 7 Apr 2021

Get it right and we have an excellent link with the American owners as well as someone who has their own vision to help us succeed and support Paul Cook. Get it wrong and we are potentially in a similar situation as we were with Evans .No pressure...

Out of contract players
at 19:01 2 Apr 2021

I could understand if we had some Lyle Taylor's in the squad who were no longer interested in playing for us, or who knew it was a certaintly that in a few months they will be somewhere else on a much better deal etc. However, none of our squad have played well this season and at the very least, if they can't wait to leave, surely they would now be doing their very best in the last 10 or so games to help win a contract somewhere else. It summarises the type of bottling character they have shown when they can't even seem to do it for themselves or their family, if not the club.

They must think they will get football deals whatever happens, or are just so bad that this is them doing their best to earn one, either here or elsewhere. I'm not sure which is worse.
