    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    If you called everyone at work who gave information that later transpired to have been incorrect a liar, you’d be in a lot more bother...

    Damien Johnson Promoted

    He’s not been any good at all for the last year....

    We’ve had the consultants in in the meantime Tony, so they may have put new cash flow guidelines in place (I’d love one of their reports to leak into the public domain). They wouldn’t have been doing their jobs properly if they hadn’t highlighted the financial benefits of sell early, buy late in the window.

    I’m betting cash flow. Ties in with something quoted on here recently about us wanting to spread payments over life of contracts to match how they are accounted for. Same budget as last year or not, it all has to come over from India and I’m guessing there may be issues on the phasing of it coming over.

    If only! This is mostly the Mowbray is thick/useless/deluded/flipflopping topic. Far too much hand-wringing about the order of acquisitions IMO. Free agents got landed first as their lack of employment/salary might have meant they’d go anywhere; then our long-term target; now we are onto the possibles lists. Given each candidate will have different fees/wages, I’m expecting to see a couple of “outs” before we plump for who is coming in given budgets will need to be balanced: shift high earners like Evans and Mulgrew and we can raise our sights.
  6. Blacklaw/Barton, Fryatt, Coddington, Kopel, Darling, Hill. We had half a promotion team and half a relegation team, then we sold Sir Keith followed by Knighton (what a captain he was!)
  7. I remember Barton being in the reserves while Blacklaw was in the team, with Sir Roger then taking over and showing us what a proper keeper looked like (aside from his forays dribbling to the halfway line, which I have never seen since.)
  8. John Barton - 5’10” and 13st 4lbs - our own version of William “Fatty” Foulke! Except not as good.

    There’s a page about him in one of Fergie’s books - the only defender SAF was ever scared to play against, and that was when they were both in their teams’ reserves!

    I thought he was our best player that day, and it seems the manager did too given that, from that point on, he picked Travis more often than Evans and Smallwood put together. So it seems his favouritism is somewhat brittle...

    Copa America

    Am I the only one watching this? Cracking game so far between Peru and Chile: lots of skill, both looking to attack, proper kits too - half expecting Cubillas to pop up and smash one in. Conversely, Brazil vs Argentina last night was dreadful, everything that’s bad about the modern men’s game. I hadn’t realized how little Messi does off the ball, he spent half the game not moving at all.

    England

    Second best throughout, gave the ball away constantly. Was the plan for VAR that it would disallow goals and award pens for minuscule infractions invisible to the naked eye? And what happened to daylight between the forward and the last defender?

    Mine too. I played goalie as school and got kicked full in the face going down at someone’s feet; spat out two back teeth. I never fancied it after that, not that I was any good mind, as Arbitro will confirm. Mowbray and the defence clearly lost faith in him, which didn’t help any of them. Time to go I feel.
