Celina will be playing against us next season apparently
at 07:15 20 Jul 2018

I'd say by today's standards he's worth a lot more to be honest. But yes, there's every chance he may plateau. I actually think he did improve because he was so lacking in areas Mick is (in)famous for.

I'm very surprised he's stayed in England and the Championship to be fair.

Might be a case of fans on twitter saying they'd like him to be fair, but not for a week or so.

£4m seems very cheap too in fairness.

I can't believe you've highlighted he's a liar then pushed the Westwood button. You're going to a flashing red TWTD kick in the cock for sure now.

Before the PO final I was suggesting Beckles as one to watch and a likely target. Then he put in a stinker, despite Salop fans seemingly rating and raving about him in their playoff season. It's always risky judging a player on one game, but those who saw the final shouldn't be put off Beckles in my limited opinion.

Given he's left sided, big and physical it seemed a fit with Knudsen/Kenlock likely to go this summer at least. Then the Nsiala links came, it might be that we go for both.

My only worry, especially with the good PR of Bart and the clear softening up for taking the money and running Waghorn out, is that we buy a squad of League 1 players, some League 2 and there's a strong likelihood we end up with a team for League 1 if things go a bit squiffy quickly.


These are interesting times.

Paul Hurst's comments to the media

When Mick came in it couldn't be any worse. When Jewell came in, did Keane leave better? Can't see that.

Jim to Roy might have been better without checking to be fair but that's a decade ago, so a fairly difficult sell but regardless, Hurst has been left a somewhat lopsided squad thanks to injuries and contracts running down but it's a squad we own and has lots of talent and potential.

The fact he's tied down Bart and is yet to sell Waghorn, Knudsen and although it looks likely, Garner only strengthens the point.

He's inherited the best squad and "mess" ever under Evans. What he's been left compared to what Mick inherited is light years apart.

He literally can do no wrong in some of the more deluded fans' eyes for months if not ever, just by virtue of not being Mick, and has a huge stock of credit in the bank with the majority of the fanbase. Even Evans is cashing in on it in PR terms.

It seriously baffles me how people can write stuff like this and not even jog their own memory of what has actually happened in the past 10 years.

Yep, just replied to Joe saying the same. Would be great if he and Cotter were able to step into being squad members wouldn't it? Especially when we've suddenly looked so short this week.

I wonder if he’s looking at what he could have won, had he stayed. Still a tad bizarre given the recent spate of links out at senior and academy level.

Hurst interview
at 17:52 17 Jul 2018

Apart from the fact he's played at this level before against us, had a 15 year playing career where he made himself a legend at a club which is far more than a fair proportion of the squad, of course.

I always find it weird how vegans and their propaganda humanise animals.

I saw a jolly meme last night comparing the slaughterhouse figures for a week with that of the holocaust. Seemed beyond poor taste (the meme not the bacon obviously).

It's just going back and shoring up their shoddy arguments, presumably bullsh1t doesn't make good cement.

Why people and things have to be 100% good/bad is beyond me, but when you frame them that way of course you're never going to get close to a true picture.

Maybe an old fashioned sweeper but these days I just don't see it.

Time for Skuse to become more like Makelele in his dotage and be used for the big games. Hurst likes a powerhouse in midfield so I suspect Adeyemi and Chalobah may compete as the 1 in the 4-1-4-1 or be paired with Dozzell in the 4-2-3-1

I know Skuse has deputised at RB (away to Blackpool is my only recollection for us, but he did it at Brizzle) but I just don't see the use or value when he is so critical to midfield being a success.

We really need to younger CMs to step up now, they've (unintentionally) let us down with the lack of playing time this past 2 seasons.

I make you, Bloots and Phil right to varying degrees and not necessarily contradicting each other.

How Mick was treated in the end and the run up to that beginning in the 18 month period you cite was eventually disgusting. It clearly took a far bigger toll on him, the players and the club than those propelling it ever acknowledged in the correct way. The Douglas incident at QPR and subsequent admission from Chambers, followed a year later by the revision of Knudsen after Brentford etc. paints it's own picture.

One thing Mick never did was dig out his players in public, but these aren't Hurst's players. When he came in and Wellens told us some home truths about what was painfully obvious about the innards of the dressing room that only strengthened Mick's hand and helped rally fans as the results came in.

These aren't Hurst's players though, and it's fairly understandable he'd move on more than just Webster. Arguably in the way Mick wanted to move Bru on but was hamstrung, anyone watching last year knew that injuries and discontent meant we needed to evolve the side anyway.

Hurst inherits some real gems in Chambers and Skuse but this is the last season they can be considered weekly players, so it's timely anyway. What worries me about these comments and says more about some fans to be blunt is the lists and public outing based on gossip and prejudice.

Any player that leaves now is tarnished, whereas say Taylor was a self-made pariah when he left people knew he was a wrong'un same as Chopra; a few were drummed out by Mick and no real indication given they too were bad for morale.

Those desperate to pretend Hurst is wildly different or "we've never heard this before" after Braintree when Mick said near identical things after Charlton shows people are preoccupied with the wrong individual. This is where Marcus needs to make his name count for something and back PH.

One of the main reasons we still hear so much about Stephen Yaxley-Lennon was because he became a cause celebre for the KKK and alt right types on twitter in the past couple of years. A kind of look what's happening in Britain, it can happen here too so they massively mobilised for him and the rest of the detritus they stirred up from the depths of British society.

Bunch of ****s the lot of them.
