Barnsley Linked With Downes
at 21:30:52

Bazza8564. As for the luton guy. We never even got the stage of making him an offer. Football insider actually reported that we were preparing to make an offer but he decided to stay. And wed have been offering more than £3000 a week anyway. Why, when our squad is likely to be smaller next season would we suddenly be offering less wages than before. With the money saved by having less players to pay we wont need to. And wed hardly be able to attract better quality players if we offered that kind of money.

Bazza8564. Ur point was about the youngsters not having a relegation clause. As I said, that was bcse their wages were less than the 1st teams. If u really believed all the rubbish about Bart being on £20,000, then sorry, ur deluded. In fact uve contradicted urself bcse players were forced to take a50% cut in wages on relegation. So how do u work out he was on that amount when, as u say his wages were going down to £4000?

Dog. If you think we were on the cusp of the playoffs bcse of a run of 3 wins ur deluded. And we were unbeaten at home under cook at the end of the season. And it was the players who downed tools who were the problem, just bcse cook told them the truth and basically challenged them to perform or go. I've forgotten the number of times if I said I was u happy in my job that my manager told me, if u dont like it you onow where the door is. But did i down tools. No, I had pride in myself and continued to do my best. Shame they didnt.

Vanisleblue. Agree with much of what ur saying. Ur exactly right with ur view of the players this last season since cooks arrival. Dont think th team you've posted tho, will be anywhere near the starting line up come the start of the season. Will be more than 5 new players coming into the club.

Betty blue. There u go again. Still spouting rubbish. How the hell do u know what the club are asking for Downes? Certainly will become than £500,000. But then, u clearly know nothing about football. The only person who would have changed whatcdownes is or was worth, is Downes. Although his lricexactually would have dropped now anyway as he has less time left on his contract. But as he wasnt caluesxat £1.5 m last season anyway. That's what the club rejected. So why dont you stop opening ur big mouth and allowing so muchvteipe to come out of it. Only one keyboard warrior on here. You've clearly never been to a game in ur life. Cook has a worse record than Lambert who's had 4 succesive relegations, hurst who's had 2 in his last 3 jobs, whereas cooks had 3 promotions as champions at all 3 clubs hes managed. And before you say ur talking about here you need to remember we are still unbeaten at home under him. At a time when the so called professional players in our squad decided to down tools.

Bazza8564. Yes, they may have signed deals without a?relegation clause in them, but that was bcse their wages were a lot less than others anyway. Thus nothing to do with the wage situation now if they go or not. But yes, as u say some may have to move on and that would clearly also help. Tho I suspect those coningvin will be earning more than the youngsters who leave are. And as u also say, he hadnt literally said they can go. Ur spot on that it's a challenge to them to prove they're good enough to be here.

Let's actually remember that cook hadnt told any of the under contract players that they have to find another club. Just that they can do. If rather than take that statement at fa e value, you read between the lines, that's clearly a challenge to those players that if they wanna stay and prove there good enough, they can do that. Also, as usual, some of the reaction to this link is over the top. At the end of the day, it's exactly that. A link. At this stage means very little. Personally, even if theres any truth in it, I cannot see Downes agreeing a move there. That's just how I see it mind you.

Timandkatieitfc. No. We won't have to accept less for them at all. If we have a price we want we dont have to accept any less . And no, I wouldnt blame Downes if he wanted to go somewhere to earn 4/5 times what hes on here. Something he definitely wont be doing if he goes to Barnsley tho. End of the day, like any other human being, hed want to earn more money. But theres always of going about it. And that's not putting in a transfer request bcse ur having a strop bcse the club turned down the derogatory offer palace put in for him. I'm sure had the right offer come in, hed have got his move.

Bettublue. How the hell has cook lost the club money on dozzell and Downes? For1, theres nothing to say that Downes is actually going to go. And if he does, we dont and maybe never will know how much he will go for. And the same with dozzell as despite people saying on twitter , the fee is £500,000, that's more conjecture. And we'll never k ow that fee neither. So just stop talking rubbish

Betty blue. Do everyone a favour and did off and support some1 else. Mind you I use the word support in ur case very lightly. Cook only wants players who want to be here, so a player who put in a transfer request in january hardly fits that bill. And he hadnt sacked the whole squad. Hes told them they can find other clubs. So they have the choice. Do exactly that or stay and fight to prove they want to be here. And frankly I cannot see barnsley making a big enough offer to get him anyway. But instead of spouting ur negative rubbish, why not try getting behind the club.

Cornell Leaves By Mutual Consent
at 15:10:51

Blueboy1981. Agree with most of what uve put in those 2 posts. As u say, there will he fans who simply expect us to automatically beflyingvaway with the league, and if we arent after a couple of months, will be calling for Cooks head. It might be that we could be midtable come December. That doesnt mean wed be out of it tho. But some wont accept that. Simply think, new owners, new manager, new team and everything's rosy straight away. As mark Detmer and o'Leary have both said tho, it could take time, and we need to show dome patience. The only thing I'd question u over is the point about scouts. May well have been the case before the takeover but dont think it is now. Think the players weve already signed and are linked with signing suggest that's improved already. Sure theres still room to improve that side of it tho, which I'm sure will happen.

Linkboy13, tractorboybig. Ur basing ur comments on what? Weve already signed 2 players who had championship clubs after them so it doesnt mean its certain we'll miss out here. Yes, we probably wont get every target we are after but if he wants to join a club wholl have a points deduction at the start of next season and therefore a good chance of being relegated rather than join a club aiming to go up then thatll be his choice. Nothing to do with the status of our club as u seem to suggest.

Cat. I dont know what you've been watching re holy with the ball. Hes as bad with tbe ball as Cornell. Difference between the 2 is Cornell is better at saving shots.
And to all those saying Cornell is simply rubbish. Within hours of him leaving he has championship clubs chasing him. Clearly they see more in him than you do.

Monkeyblue. It wont eat into the wage bill at all. It's a pay off, not wages. No different than if u were to be made redundant. The redundancy money does not come out of the companies wage budget.

Chambers: I Was Told I Wouldn’t Be Leaving and Then I Would Be
at 11:36:52

Itfctim . What a ridiculous, and unnecessary post. So it was all his fault that we got relegated and failed to go back up. A captain can only do so much on the pitch. If the players alongside him arent good enough then what's he supposed to do. And yes, he wasnt at his best the past 3 seasons. Tho its amazing how fickle some fans are. At the start of this last season everyone was saying how well he was playing at rb. Soon as we started losing games, he was rubbish and it was his fault we were losing games. Then theres everything he did off the field of play. So yes, he has every right to feel proud of what he's achieved at the club. And I'm sure hes as disappointed as anyone that that didnt include success on the pitch. So why not try giving him some credit for all the years he was here instead of slagging him off.

Ashton: 11,000 Season Tickets Sold
at 11:26:26

Atty. To suggest for 1 that 11000 season ticket sales is disappointing is rubbish. And to suggest that Evan's reign has anything to do with the season ticket sales for next season, is frankly ridiculous. And taking into account that a number of fans cancelled their season tickets mid season, weve sold somewhere around 3000 in the 1st week of general sale. And wjth the early bird price being available until august this year, theres plenty of time for numbers to increase.
