Re: January Transfer Window Discussion - Rumours and Links welcome

When players are towards the end of their contract or out of contract and the headline fee is therefore low or there is nothing at all, this does not necessarily mean they are cheaper to buy than an identical player who is still under contract. Reason being that the player (via their agent) will try...

I think it’s fair to say Charlie had two fantastic seasons at QPR but their fans have a big shock in store if they think they are getting the same player back. He did, although not sure he ever bettered the run he had with us when he scored 20 goals before November. Everything he hit seemed to go i...
