  1. We are no better off than our position last summer and the season starts next week. We are not 1 or two players short which would be acceptable, we are at the very least, half a squad short. Embarrassing we have not been able to solve the left-back position for one. We have had since last summer to find a long term replacement when Ecks was told he could leave, regardless of Muzeks short stay inbetween. We are absolutely ruining the development of Erhahon played out of position. 100% clear to all that he cannot operate at left back. It seems like the club will still use him as a back up left back if we get one in. If anything changes this week then great, though in my mind, surely we had two lists drawn up of targets (one for premier,the other for championship).
  2. Popescu was on the verge of a loan move. His club moved the goalposts with the terms and contribution.
  3. I have never understood why we have never explored the USA player market. I'm not sure how the Andy Dorman deal came around though was one of the most effective signings in the last 25 years easily. I watch the MLS and although the standard isn't brilliant, there are some very good players there. The whole academy systems also have some players I am sure that can be unearthed. I always thought if possible it would be great to have some linkup with a club or youth academy over there in some capacity.
  4. The board to be fair have only been in charge for 3 years. Some may say that's plenty of time to out things into action, others differently. I believe the club ARE exploring new ways of generating new income, it's just all cannot be a big reveal to the public until these things are in place. That's just my opinion though. Hospitality isn't something I've done a lot of, though I haven't had any complaints with what you get for your money. Still one of the lowest costs in the league. I am sure if there is any question over standards, the club are probably doing their best to keep everything within budget without charging fans a huge increase due to now playing back in the top league. Campbell and Tommy do a magnificent job for the resources at the club they have. A lot of clubs have a bigger backroom team behind them, though we are currently operating with very few people behind the scenes. No ideas on funerals, though it is advertised in the commercial brochure and on the website. Would be interesting to see how the fakes generate interest from this. To be fair, business club has been re-launched and has been going for the last 3-4 months. There are so many networking events out there. Once this one starts to gain exposure it will be one of the most popular ones in the area. I have already brought along a number of business owners who have since returned. Agree on the youth side of things. I'm not sure how the club approaches this currently. When I was younger they used to dish out free tickets to schools. Could be some incentive attached to the free tickets for parents. Did you enjoy your free matchday experience? Why not sign up for an adult season ticket and get X amount of kids free season tickets Included.
  5. This time last season will still be fresh in the boards mind from the cluster f**k of bad signings we made. We are trimming the squad this year though looking to spend on better quality. 5 would still take us close to the numbers we tried to bring the squad down to in January. Still think if we move one or two on, that will free up space for a couple more. I don't believe we are skint, just trying to be shrewd, however frustrating the length of time it is taking to get more bodies in.

    Payoffs and an oversized squad as well as the extra couple of players in January.
  7. This is all just pure speculation. Nowhere whatsoever does it say anywhere that Tansey is surplus to requirements and been told to move on. Heaton is not owed two years wages. As far as I am aware, we have told him he is free to find another club. I also believe (could be wrong), the transfer fee of £75k was not paid in full and was broken down into installments/milestones depending on certain criteria. Kearney is not owed 2 years wages.
  8. He has had such a massive set back with his fitness, maybe the club/coaches didn't want to risk him incase he broke down again regardless if it is 20mins or not. .
  9. Possibly the difference in intensity of training sessions. Goody will have the players in on tough training session and maybe its something that is too strenuous for the stage Tansey is at?
  10. Can you get lettering and numbers printed there and then at the shop? How much roughly, as was going to get the wee fellas done.
  11. I don't think the club are forcibly trying to start a bidding war by making up offer/ We want to keep him at the club. If anything, mentioning other clubs are interested is certainly a way of forcing the bidding teams hand to up their offer. Did Oran get a pay off though? You seem to be in the know.
  12. I'd also be very surprised if we don't see at least two in before Sunday. Imo the transition in manager, if we already had targets identified should have only set us back a week or two max.
