    Have a look at the current boards record with regards to transfers, contracts and sales and in every single case they have shown total incompetence in this field. Raheem Sterling was the best deal we had and that was Liverpool.selling.
    Freeman, Scowens?

    • 2 good signings in 7 years not a great record is it.

        We made a profit on Polter, Chery, Smithies and have Freeman, Luongo plus 4 or 5 promising youngsters. Nothing great but last few years have shown significant improvement since prem days.

          Ain't being funny mate, but that's rubbish. Have a look at our outlay on players in the last 2 seasons, and the fees we've got back in, it really ain't too bad. I actually think we are probably running at a decent profit. Admittedly we wasted far too much money in the first 3 or 4 years of Fermandes' tenure but things have been much better since Lee Hoos came in and started controlling the purse strings!

          • Rubbish Tarbie? Do you think Fernandes would still be chucking it away if he could? Fair play good point on those mentioned.

            • A good start for Smyth and he will be the next one to go for a mars bar and a can of coke as he is in his last 12 months.

                You agree it's not 'every single one' then

                • I agree that those two were great signings yes. Do you agree that Armand Traore getting an extention after was a bad move!

                    • 1973 ranger do you ever stop moaning.

                      • Think people are choosing to ignore the fact he only went for the price he did because of alleged clause. The clause was clearly only put in place to get him to renew. Had he not renewed with that clause we would not be rowing over four million we would be rowing over him going on a free

                        not ideal but perhaps club done well enough getting him to renew so we got something and if he went along with it fair play to him as well

                        • Jeff. Not jumping for joy at the last few days as not happy at our best player leaving for whatever reason. Like the look of young Smyth who needs locking down now or he will go for a bag of chips in January and looking forward to Eze having a decent go this year. So not moaning just forming an opinion based on reality.

                            Very good post West. We don't actually know the details but it would not surprise me at all if this was the case.

                            • Ethereridge has just signed a new contract at Cardiff, hes their No.1 keeper so Smithies is going to be be a bench warmer. Lack of ambition on Smithies part I think

                              • Think Smithies is better than Etheridge myself, but agree if he's gone there as no2 that is quite frankly sad
