    Question Free Transfers?

    One thing that struck me today with the likes of Duberry and Whalley being released today, and Irekipen still on a free transfer as well, how does it all work if we wanted to bring any of them in? Now, Irekipen was a free agent BEFORE the transfer window, and Duberry and Whalley DURING the...
  7. Successfull Transfer Window?

    So, the Janruary Window is closed, and that looks to be the end of our wheelings and dealings for now. So, how does everyone feel about the transfers, both in and out? Was it a good window for us, are you happy with what's happened through Jan. Or was it a bad one? Here's a reminder of what's...

    The Mail on Sunday "confirms" (if you can call it that!) that the players were not paid on time for the fourth month in a row! That's not really a surprise given our current economic plight though

    Champ Man '01-'02

    Having a bit of a revival of this due to a old uni mate I met up with this week. Easy enough to download for free online and then update from here www.champman0102.co.uk - means I am playing with 09 squad. No silly £20m+ transfers, simple, bash out as many games as you can! Something really...
  13. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...
  14. United Cleared, Can Continue European Pillage

    Well, anybody could have seen that one coming.

United are usually as immaculate off the pitch...

    Why are transfers so hard to conclude in the modern era and where does it leave us?

    As it's all doom and gloom around here (perhaps a little unsurprisingly) I thought a topic to discuss in the meantime might be in order. So I thought we could discuss WHY transfers are so hard to conclude nowadays. Here's my lot: For a start, I think it's due to escalated prices. The top teams...

  19. Did we gamble and fail ....

    When we got promoted to the Championship, did we gamble on players who couldn't produce the goods? We signed Paynter, Harrold and Foran. These players cost alot of money but never produced what was required for us to stay up. Foran cost £200k which could have been used much better. The...
  20. Blues Player Inteviews

    Heath: Didnt really commit himself to saying he wanted to stay. Wasnt sure about his future, but when pressed to say if he wanted to stay, he just said he "wants to play games (i.e. not specifically here)". Get the impression M'Voto has already been earmarked to take over next week. Tilson: Bit...
