I don't believe for one moment we would pay 5k to only Loan someone else's player.
If we were to sign him permanent who knows....
These are my opinions , if you don't like them I have others...

The targets he mentioned wanting hefty wages and long contracts are the exact same players Topham signed early on last year and we are struggling to move on this.

We are shopping at a different supermarket this year for sure.

Dead right we are. New managers always inherit stuff from the previous manager. Sometimes it's good, more than often it's bad.

Given what the walk away manager left us with it will take DF at least three transfer windows to put it right.

I hope the DF critics can now see what we have been left with, but more importantly they give him time to correct things.

Like what the managers says in his update, succumbing to a players over-inflated valuations (again) isn't the way forward. Patience is key, plenty of targets out there who will need to 'cut their cloth' in the coming few weeks.

Agreed. Don't be held to ransom and don't just fling around the cash Evans-esque.

We already have the solid foundations of a good side. In reality 2-3 more players would be enough.

There's sound but its just music.



Found it a bit funny where Danny Rose was lifting the weights and struggled a little then cuts to conrad logan with what appears to be the same weight just smashing it. I appreciate that, as a goalkeeper, conrad would be able to lift more.

I love this complete Ignorance when it comes to who actually signed off on Evans signings, If you think there is blame then you need to share it between Evans and the Radfords.

Nobody is perfect, it’s fine to criticise them.

The key issues are why is David Flitcroft planning some kind of D Day invasion of Europe from Suffolk and Portsmouth; and why has he drawn a set of rugby goalposts on his map of Britain? :lol:

Let me guess Yorkie, the UK map is to try and convince our fans he's back home right now?

Best quotes from David Flitctoft

"Eight centre midfield players last season was just insane"

"We were interested in Kane Hemmings but the deal got fantastically expensive"

I think he sucked them in, with his rhetoric.

One thing for sure they won't be signing players early doors again at tip top prices.

As a consequence of DF's more cautious approach ( I accept he still has to be judged on who he brings in and equally who he ships out ) he will be given time by the Radfords.

The walk away manager has used his scattergun approach of getting the numbers in early. Perhaps he's got another "pot of gold" to go at.

Andy, the previous manager was more 'leprosy' than 'leprechaun' ;)

At the evening with JR and CR it was made quite clear that other clubs were in a "bidding war" for one or two of our transfer listed players.

Now weeks later we are told by DF that there have been no offers for our transfer listed players.

Which one is it then??? :o :o :o

Possibly that they were after our players, but sought cheaper alternatives?

Hang on. Why put in a bid in the first place if you then wanted a cheaper alternative, you wouldn't. Dont follow the logic of that point at all sorry. Im not trying to argue a point with you just trying to understand what has been said by JR and DF a month after.

So paying £5k a week for a 21 year old isn't a tip top price?

Has that been confirmed? Despite the rumours we have only made two signings so far. If you mean Walker, if he does sign it will likely be on loan and I would imagine his alleged wage will be shared by Forest and Stags.

At this stage last Evans had signed several players, far more than DF.
