This one for me

 

That is some classy build up from Emnes, he really could play when he wanted to...

Ipswich linked with DG: https://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/sport/ipswich-town/ipswich-town-transfer-target-danny-graham-1-6784119

Not a surprise considering Lambert is still there and obviously he was the one who initially brought Graham here. He'd be a great signing for them but not sure how the recent salary cap introduction may affect what they can offer him in terms of wages.

I think he's going to be looking at teams in that Division now so he'll have to take whatever is on offer.

I'd agree, although if the salary cap is being taken seriously by L1/L2 teams then smaller clubs than Ipswich might be able to offer DG higher wages due to having more room to manuever within the salary cap limits.

If clubs just ignore the rule entirely then it'll probably be between Ipswich and Sunderland.

I can’t see him returning to Sunderland.

Good move for him

Have to admit I would be surprised as well, but a lot has changed there since he's left so who knows. You have to imagine after last time their fans would lose patience with him very quickly if he didn't get off to a good start.

The SC is only being introduced slowly. I think that any players already at clubs who are on big wages will be classed as being on 1.6k or thereabouts (the L1 average) until their contract runs out. Norwood, who is on £9k a week will be classed as on £1.6k. That leaves money in Ipswich's budget apparently which is why they are being linked with some big earners.

Yeah that's right, although these clubs have to make signings with one eye to the future as when many contracts come up next year they may not be able to renew them based on the new salary cap - and if they've spunked a massive portion of their wage budget on Graham, even for just a year or two, it could have consequences for who they can sign across the rest of the pitch.

Clubs like Ipswich and Sunderland are basically going to want to get out of L1 ASAP as their competitive advantage through being 'big' clubs in the league is going to rapidly diminish as the seasons go on assuming the salary cap is implemented as is and sticks around. I am still sceptical as to how the EFL can apply the salary cap if it is legally unenforcable, though.
