Would say it's the legacy of covid more than the relegation impacts. Last year has been disastrous for so many clubs, although online shopping should still be thriving so goodness knows.

footfall in these big malls must have"well" fallen away dramatically, Covid and big stores closing. Will be a purely commercial decision I imagine. (not saying its right to expect folks from the far flung regions west of dudley to travel to B71 but Lai and his commercial team will doubtless have considered the long term benefits they will lose...)

Only Talksport, but they are reporting QPR are keen to sign Austin on a free.

No **** sherlock ?  Investigative journalism at its best !

Agreed Dex.

I feel we’re going in the right direction by sticking with Big Sam. As you’ve rightly pointed out, the building has already started. Let’s see where it takes us 😃👍🏻

How has building started ??,
the only incoming is Snodgrass who seems to be injured a long time. IF somehow we can keep 2 of Okay / Diagne or Gallagher then you will have a start but only IF.
I suggest its been more a demolition with OUR players ostracised (Diangana / Grant / Kipre / Sawyers / Livermore / edwardes / O'Shea largely)

I suspect that Levy at Spuds will be under significant pressure to improve their squad after "failure' this and previous seasons, Will they pass up on the chance to tempt Periera away, I doubt it.
Expect a long and fraught period of negotiations to ensue once the manager situation there is sorted..

I can't comment on Maresca as a potential manager, But for me its Allardyce =No,  Wilder =No,
 
I would be trying to convince Steve Clarke to come back or dare i say Meggodon, but I can't see either happening!

Any not bought will be offered on to the next selected the email said.

Is it me or is it not strange sending the above to successful applicants but nothing to unsuccessful ?

we are the cruiser weight who tries stepping up to heavyweight gets battered and comes back down to cruiser where a load of welterweights are trying to step up, so we batter the welterweights,
Yes at some point we either do over a couple of heavies or get done over by very good welterweights but at some point you have to accept you are not going to be Heavy weight champion of the world or Uk even.

Someone once said "we know what we am" and its a good maxim,  no good comes from deluding ourselves, just disappointment and frustration.  But yes its nice when you put a heavy on his ar5e !! 
Maybe thats why the cups were so enjoyable (once upon a time)

Should never have been sacked in the first place. Superb job everywhere he has gone. That was our high point.

I would MUCH prefer this option to Allardyce, but we would need owner to be patient when he got us back up. (unlikely IMO)

with how cynical clubs are about not playing players and triggering clauses, it would be naïve in the extreme of players and agents to sign away their rights as you describe, "the club trigger it regardless of the player's wishes." wouldn't it??

Bloody agents, never enough money is there???

Parasites yet still need to resort to robbing their employers (allegedly m'lud)

Good manager, no idea how much it would take to prise him away from Ipswich.

Hasn't hit the ground running at Ipswich, remains to be seen how he gets on there, new board at Portman road may give him some cash to build with, (re-assess his progress at xmas IMO)

They have some fabulous players KDB is an amazing talent. Jesus would walk into almost any team on the planet, Sergio is as natural a finisher as you will see anywhere (except from the spot - weirdly).

all this becomes irrelevant though when the club participates in a fixed "competition", the circus is full of amazingly talented people but its a spectacle not a competitive environment.
If the game continues along this route it will become a caricature of what it was, much like WWE and the NFL  (why is college football more popular than the NFL?)

No Kudos in winning a fixed game, sorry thats cynical but any club that wants to be in a league with no relegation is not a competitive club, its a sham !!!!

Regardless Nigel Person whilst one of the better shouts is an absolute nutter and a bit too unstable.
Nah! he is just a character  ;D  I like his abrasiveness mixed with unusual communicative skills

As my Dad used to say, if you aim to be the best you might not achieve it, but at least you'll probably do okay.  If you aim to be average, you'll end up achieving nothing.   Applies generally in life, but also to football clubs.

thats an argument I haven't heard before and sounds like a good attitude to stuff, just a shame football (like life) isn't fair

Hasn’t he just signed a new 3 year deal with Bristol City?
Wasn't aware of that have deleted the request.

1 step closer to me getting on team Allardyce

Chumpionship for Champions League, who could blame him???

Shame but if any truth in this and he will go.
Evans / Barnes / Periera, oh what could have been with some astute leadership of the club

You are saying albion have the choice of:

A) extend Sam's contract by a year and get a fee OR
B) let Sam leave on a free and get NO fee.

Which one do you think we will choose???

Sam has to sign the contract for it to be of any use to us
