Re: BFC TRANSFER NEWS SUMMER 2020(MUST CONTAIN LINK)

Is it now genuinely looking like the Tarky deal is almost over the line ? Presuming the delay is ourselves sort of arranging short term finance bridging so we can still sign our targets if this one runs to the wire . Pretty gutted we’re likely to lose him but 40m is no bad fee

Re: Fair play to Saints

We were poor but they were bloody awful , Pope didn’t have a single save to make . They lacked in almost every dept and with a very talented set of players too . Not forgetting were stripped to our literal barebones ,I’d have them as relegation mix without a doubt .
