    Well Messi's injured so it probably won't be him.

    No he came on as a sub last night. So it's a possibility

    It's Baggio!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Either that or we've signed some Yorkshire miners from the 80's or some british Leyland workers from the 70's.

    It is DEFINITELY Rhodes (unsubstantiated)

    Default Re: The Unsubstantiated Rumour Thread

    As per my previous posts my unsubstantiated rumours are that:

    We are in for Rhodes with probably Derbyshire going the other way - we're seriously looking at buying him;
    We're also looking at another striker in the £3 to £4 million price bracket if Rhodes doesn't come off;
    Lascelles is going but will probably be on loan to us for rest of season;
    Darlow probably going but will be on loan for rest of season;
    Also some sniffing around Lansbury;
    Vaughn to be signed permanently before end of Jan window.

    Rhodes is supposedly becoming more likely because if/when Lascelles and Darlow are sold it'll cover a huge chunk of the transfer fee & keep us within FFP, and if we don't go up this time it's reckoned that a Prem club will pay a lot more for Rhodes than we have in the close season so that would provide funds for next season to buy players within FFP rules.

    Could all be BS for all I know.

    Hope not. Rather keep our stellar youngsters. Happy with a lower rent striker and getting Vaughan.

    I think if we're going to have any shout at the autos, or promotion in general then we need a Rhodes like striker.

    If we get to keep lascelles and Darlow on loan for the rest of the season and use the money now to buy Rhodes then we get the best of all worlds - keep the great youngsters in defence and get the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle in attack.

    The alternative is to get a lower quality striker in and have more of what we've got now - another plodder who'll bang in no more than 10 in a season, so we're no further forward.

    And if we do manage to keep hold of Lascelles, Darlow, & Lansbury now but don't get promoted this time then you can bet your bottom dollar they'll all be gone in the closed season.

    So what makes more sense - get the money for them now (as long as we get to loan them the rest of the season) and spend that money on a "stellar" striker, which also keeps us inside FFP rules, or try to keep them now and instead get in a lower quality striker, not get promoted, then lose them in the summer anyway and have to replace them all and STILL find a high quality striker while keeping within the FFP rules?

    Shit or bust without so much of the shit side of things if we do this I think.

    I would love a really good championship striker but not at the expense of Darlow and Lacelles. With Vaughan in midfield and fit a gain I think he would make our current midfield more potent in front of goals. I would then be happy with a Fryatt or Lefondre type striker who could ratlle a few in and provide some more competition for Cox and the other strikers.

    I can see what you are saying and it does make some sense. But the derisory offer of £3M would have to be a lot more (even with add ons as we need the money now for FFP) to tempt me even if they were loaned back.

    Yeah £3 million is crap for him I think they'd need to be paying at LEAST £4 million up front with a lot more to come later, but hopefully if Arsenal & Newcastle & supposedly Liverpool are sniffing it should easily get to £5 million up front plus add ons.

    Otherwise for £3 million it isn't worth it, but I guess it's a bit like Jack Hobbs - if the player wants to go then it's madness to try and force them to stay. I guess that's what they're all playing at, unsettle him and get him to decide he wants to go and hope to get a bargain.

    I have a sinking feeling in my heart that this is what we'll do.

    I for one would rather keep Darlow,Lascelles and Lansbury and go for a cheaper striker like Wickham. But i do share that worry that we'll lose them in the summer if we don't go up.

    I agree with this. I'm quite happy to take them loan back if it gets us where we want to go...

    Oh FFS.

    @greekfooty: Sivasspor ended Djebbour's loan. Olympiacos now set to send him on loan to England (Hull, Nottingham Forest or elsewhere)
