|Lambert: There Was No Respect for the Place|
This is more in line with how Sir Bobby saw the club, he was simply a great coach but an even better manager of the whole club something I can see PL emulating. It won't happen overnight but small seeds planted now will bring fruition later.
|Evans on Relegation, New Arrivals and the Promotion Challenge|
Sorry Marcus, you don't need to convince me everything you have said I agree with. It will be the faceless fools on this forum that never set foot in Portman Road and just like to talk rubbish about spending money the club doesn't have. They are all experts that have run multi million pound businesses and know better about money than yourself. They will continue to run the club down, however we have seen one administration we do not want another, especially now it comes with points deductions unlike when we got away with it.
Very glad you have confirmed that the sell ons come in sporadically, so in reality very little extra straight away. Your comments nor mine will be appreciated by the few, but will by the many. (Sorry Labour crap talk).
|Fourth Sell-On Windfall for Blues as Moore Completes Wigan Move|
Why don't you all get real, these sell ons will come in in dribs and drabs over the length of the players contract. In reality there is very little paid upfront, so very little sell on initially. I sometimes wonder about the people on this forum, have they no knowledge how these deals are structured?. Thats why the money for Harrison was used to pay off the outstanding amount still owed.
Besides we have a very good squad of young players here that will not get any experience if we keep signing journeymen.
|Blues Edge Closer to Webster and Moore Sell-On Windfalls|
I think when you find out the structure of these deals, there is very little money upfront and the whole fee is stretched over the length of the players contract. So in fact it could be 2, 3. 4, years before we see the money. The reality is there was probably around 50% of the selloffs paid now.
|McCarthy Has Sympathy With Town Players Facing Relegation Pay Cut|
Well it seems like your senior pro's here are the ones that helped cause our decline this season, just listen to what Hurst said about them. I just hope they see that under Lambert you will have to perform week in and week out just to keep their place's unlike under Mick Mac.
I am sure that the ones that survived never thought they would be in quite this position though. Probably unfair to blame all our woes on poor recruitment by Hurst, its still 11 verses 11. At the end of the day this is a very ordinary league we are in when the Budgies that looked absolute crap in 2 games against us are top, you just need a little luck and some consistency. By the start of next season the loanees will be gone along with a few others and we should know more where we are at. No surprise that yesterdays game there was very few loanees and we played quite well.
|Wilder: Waghorn Valuation Too Steep for Blades|
Actually Me Wilder, do we want to sell the player? the answer is no, why would we sell one of our better players?. Answer: make us an offer, if its up to our valuation i.e. £8 million we will see if the player wishes to move. What we won't do is let you have our player at your valuation, if you don't rate him high enough to pay that price then jog along somewhere else, when you shop in waitrose things are more expensive than aldi.
This is a sellers market not a buyers, for too many years we have been desperate to sell our players. Keep hold of Waghorn, up his contract, unless of course Hurst doesn't want him, and would rather wheel and deal. Remember the lessons of Daryl Murphy, don't sell you top goalscorer a week before the start of the season.
|Town Linked With Welsh Strikers|
I guess as Waggy's contract only runs to 2019, I guess the best thing to do is sell if a very good offer is made, or give him a longer contract. I think Hurst only says that he can't guarantee he will be here is because he is not aware of the size of offer made. I think like most on here he would prefer him to stay, but every player has his price, if its 10 million for waggy, then sell its to good to turn down, however if he would prefer to stay just give him a better contract.
|McCarthy: Sorry for Swearing But Otherwise No Regrets Regarding Post-Burton Comments|
Some of you who think Joe Royal was great, moaned about him as well. Can you imagine what it would have been like for Sir Bobby if these forums were around when he first joined the club and spent several seasons until it finally clicked. Mick may be a 'dino' tactically but he does what he does with what he has at his disposal.
Think back to the dark knight, he is responsible for all we are experiencing now, save you venom for him. Mick may also be right be careful what you wish for.
Who wants to be promoted and become the whipping boys.
|Clegg: Harry Speculation Laughable|
We appear to have spent 4 years since they sacked jim trying to turn things around, I think most people would have been happy to just flirt with the top six in that time. Lets face it we do not have a settled side with the current turnaround of players. I for one do not blame Evans or Clegg they have tried to sign players that Jewell has identified, its just the wages that they require are way above what we feel able to give,
Oh for the days of Sir Bobby when we nurtured our own players through the ranks, and then when Sir Bobby signed a player it felt really special.
|Carson Wins Cap as Sub|
I think if you check it was not Shefki but his brother Njazi that was playing.
