    Summer Transfer Window

    To be fair, I think everyone appreciates inside info. But if you put info out there, you have to expect questions if nothing materialises. If you interpret that as a jibe than fair enough but everything I’ve read seems fair game in all honesty.

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    What a healthy attitude. Just when the club needs your support more than ever. Great result. Deserved a big win after the encouraging performances in the first two weeks. Very impressive.

    He’s not going to say Bell isn’t good enough. Saying that Bell is ‘doing alright’ is hardly a ringing endorsement. Why don’t we wait and see how the window pans out before jumping on every word.

    Deleted. Kaminski looks decent at least.

    Again, hindsight. Based on the facts at the time, selling him was understandable and that’s how it should be judged.

    No one has been making those statements. He didn’t want to be here, had come off the back of an inconsistent season and we had received a reasonable offer. I wasn’t ‘happy’ that he went but I can understand why we sold. We are all agreed that he had potential and Walton was a step down. I disagree that it was inevitable a top level PL club would be willing to throw £10m at him this summer.

    This is all being written with the benefit of hindsight. If we’d known that Raya would fetch £10m in 2020 then obviously we should have kept him. But at the time, £3m was a reasonable price for a player who was inconsistent and didn’t want to be here. He undoubtedly had potential but it was hardly inevitable that he’d be going for big money this year.

    Raya was dropped because he made mistakes. Frequently. I don’t think there were many protests when he got dropped. Walton was definitely a downgrade and we shouldn’t have sold Raya without a decent replacement lined up. However, I can understand why he was sold in the first place. Frankly I’m very surprised that a top side wants him.

    No one on here thought we could get £10m for Raya last year. Very easy to re-write history. He didn’t want to be here and so we took the Brentford offer. £3m was perhaps on the low side but not by much. I can see why he was sold. Should have found a better replacement however. For me, selling Raya is not in the same category as selling Cairney. That was criminal.

    Newcastle United away in the League Cup

    I’m yet to see what JRC brings. Got to give him a chance and certainly hasn’t let the side down but can’t pretend that I’ve been overly impressed. Thought Brereton did alright yesterday. Made things happen and certainly more positive signs than there were a year ago. Needs to do more in the box. Dolan stood out again. Ball of energy and confidence. Brings a different dimension. If he keeps this up he could be massive for us this season.

    Newcastle United away in the League Cup

    You’re trying too hard. Be reasonable. Mowbray has plenty of faults, why go about inventing them??

    Newcastle United away in the League Cup

    Absolute torture. The worst way to lose. Dominated but never looked like scoring. Hated every second. It’s great to watch but not effective. Against a packed defence we’re not good enough. Newcastle were terrible.

    Season Tickets 2020-21

    This is why season tickets shouldn’t be on sale. Too many variables and unknowns. Trying to sell a product that might not exist.

    He didn’t want to be here. Hindsight is great but I don’t think anyone would have expected Arsenal to come in for him after one season away. He was better than Walton and we probably should have got a slightly higher fee but not by much. £10m is a ridiculous price to pay for him.

    Not sure where this is coming from. Selling players for peanuts? We certainly got market value for Rhodes and Jones when they were sold. We’re useless at signing players but not sure we’re as bad at selling them. We haven’t actually sold many of our better players over the last 2/3 years. Let’s see how much Dack and Armstrong go for.
