Re: Transfer Rumours

Maybe we wanted Bardsley out the door but him triggering his contract extension put paid to that? It's not as if Kenny is some young kid who'd accept not playing for a year either, how do we keep 3 right backs happy?

Re: Peter Crouch.

For me we have to be looking to spend 15/20 million on someone who is good enough to be serious competition for Barnes/Wood. Let Vydra go and just use Wells as 4th choice, seeing as he has a year left on his deal. Another £15m on the bench plus wages and then the derision of Wells on the bench. Whe...

Re: Peter Crouch.

What's the plan then?

Replace Crouch with another forward who will get the odd 5-10 minutes here are there, but will have to compete with vydra for those impact minutes.

Would it be a Wells type of signing at a greater cost? Or a Jay Rod type who's transfer fee and wages would be even higher?

Re: Transfer Targets

Sell Wood, 20 goals in 62 PL games, replace with a young upgrade (God knows at what cost) and play Vydra an unproven PL forward. I guess there is logic in there, somewhere.

Is it me or do we get better results when Wood is playing?
