Genuine question not just to you Tee, why do folk get uptight about what club a now ex player turns up at 

His Wednesday career is over, he may cross paths at some point 

I think I just see players as commodities that come and go

I want both Byers and James to do well. I loved their attitude: they are both likeable players with an infectious attitude that lifts their team mates. But it would definitely take the edge off my feelings a bit if they're playing for a club, many of whose fans openly detest ours.

OK I do sort of get that - but I find ignoring them is much better than even acknowledging their existence 

I accept i don't have to live amongst the fuckers 

I am still dismayed the day I saw a Pig fan in the next village to me. I swerved 2 or 3 times and still missed em and came home in a bad mood as 20k had been wiped off local property values in an instance

I can't believe you've put that last bit in writing!  Never heard of the RSPCA?   😮

Just congratulated my old, Rovrum supporting mate from my old mountain gang. Told him the background, as much as I know. 

Broke back?

 

 

I apologise in advance

If I'm Jim Ratcliffe, after appointing Allegri, I'm going balls deep in signing Scalveni and Koopmainers from Atalanta.

Zirkzee, Joao Neves and Branthwaite as well.

Rashford and Bruno Fernandes to raise some cash and free up wages.

Evans is spending like he's in Greggs. 

Clarke-Harris 10k a week

Joe Rafferty, from Portsmouth, 9k

Shaun McWilliams, from Northampton, 9k

Reece James, matched his Wednesday wage of roughly 8k

And he's not done yet. He's attracting a lot of free agents by offering large wages.

I think it's called a gravitational pull in this case.

If it goes pear shaped and they are not pushing for promotion next season fans could be back out with begging buckets in a year or two.

Toy town fans quickly disappear when they are not doing well, they were giving attendances out of 10 and 11,000 last season when it was clear that some season ticket holders had packed in going and they were probably around 7 or 8,000 in stadium. 

They will have gone back to being Leeds or Liverpool fans again.

Rotherham seem on course to make a good challenge for top 2 again. Although by the end of the window there may be some good competition there. The point that jumps out is they are taking a Darren Moore approach of signing experienced players who are stand out in L1 but fairly average in the championship and sometimes fairly ineffective so it’s the same cycle but more expensive. They’d have been better building something longer term there and I’d have felt the same if we had gone down too.

Tough division though, Brum, Bolton and Huddersfield will fancy their chances.

Yeah true, possibly Charlton too. They have opted to mix it with these which is fair enough short term but I guess even if they are successful they have a lot to do in the championship on a smaller wage budget than we had. Unless big steve gets them over performing at least

Reach is one of a miniscule number of players who managed to look worse at Hillsborough than Fletcher last season

In contrast to that Fletcher, Reach scored some of the most magnificent goals for us that I've seen.

Fire sale at Leeds - according to MCguire they owe £190 mill in old transfer fee payments -look out for points deductions

If this article is right, then they owe £73.6 million of that figure before June - so in other words, NOW! 😂

Leeds problem is two fold. The players they can make money on, apart from Archie Gray, are probably the same players they owe money for. Then there's the wages. The likes of Dan James, Ampadu, Kamara, etc are on silly money so shifting them means them taking large cuts

Looks as though Leeds gambled on going straight back up - A number of high earners were loaned out rather than being sold now looks as they are going to have to be sold at a knockdown price

Worrall's on about £35k a week and wants as close to it as he can get. Forest want £4m for him but realistically just want him off the books, for whatever they can get, before the 30th June as that's their next FFP deadline and they're £20m short
