Lambert: Good Point But We Should Have Had a Penalty
at 09:48:25

2-3 weeks ago we probably would have conceded a very late goal and come away with nothing. Well played lads on what was a throwback to the old days when I used to watch football in the 70's with my dad. We have had quite a few "clear-cut" penalties turned down and some dubious ones given against us, hopefully things will balance themselves out in the coming weeks. Living in the past here I do remember an Oxford home game in the late 80's early 90's being called off really late and Oxford fans being stuck at the ground as their coach drivers needed the 2 hour break before driving back..

Blades Linked With £3m Woolfenden Move
at 10:20:51

While the Sheffield United interest if good news on the progress Luke has made, I honestly hope that he heeds the experiences of another Luke (Garbutt) who made a big money move when young and has struggled carve a career out in the game. Yes the big wages are nice but it also hampers your ability to get back on the footballing ladder. What will be will be but if we are serious about building a home grown team to challenge in the Championship at some stage, selling Luke does not tick the boxes. However I do remember the club selling Kieran Dyer, but the transfer money was reinvested by the club with some astute signings McGreal and Marcus Stewart which got us promoted that year so we do have a flip side but I would doubt whether we could recruit the players with the quality we would need with £3m no doubt paid in instalments .

Preston's Earl Signs on Loan
at 11:29:27

Gilesy, remember it well but the make weight in the deal Tarrico did alright for us after a terrible debut v Bolton in the League Cup.
Nice to see us sign a centre-half over 6 foot 2, which should help with set pieces in both boxes. The art of a near post corner flick on has been sadly forgotten these days! He is also left footed which should bring a bit of balance to the back line after numerous attempts to sign Curtis Tilt failed.

Bolton Targeting Nsiala Move
at 15:00:39

I take it that Bolton's finances are in a better state than they were earlier in the season otherwise I suspect this will be a loan. Would like Tommy Smith back but that depends on his MLS Status.

Town Talking to Everton About Garbutt's Future
at 12:38:05

Has completely lost his way at Everton, but has done well at Oxford and here on loan. Will probably be down to what his agent thinks at the end of the day as while we pay good wages it still might not be enough unless we make it back to the Championship. Still if the lad is happy here and trying to build a career then it should be a no brainer for him, particularly if Everton give him a pay off to get him off their books. Hope he makes a wise decision!

Sunderland and Peterborough Linked With Wilson
at 13:47:55

Should imagine he want to stay and for the security of him and his family needs something more than a short term contract so understand that his agent is circulating this. Up to Evans & Co to get this across the line as he is a good fit with our squad.

Evans Hoping for Handshake and Glass of Wine
at 10:25:51

I think that PL needs a public apology from Steve Evans over those remarks not just playing it down as heat of the moment stuff. One thing for certain he wont be on PL's Christmas card list.

Vincent-Young Bid Accepted Report
at 12:22:06

First Lambert Cash Signing? Would be a good acquisition as he can play full back on either side and gives Lambert some flexibility. Both Taricco and Mills could do both sides and served us well over the years, hopefully this lad will do the same. Wonder who will pick up Josh or whether he or Cotter will be part of a player exchange deal.

Trialist Wilson Set to Sign
at 11:53:47

Wish we could have picked up a left footed Centre Back but happy with this signing. Re the other postings regarding Tilt, Barnsley agreed a fee for him and then the goalposts were moved leading to them eventually kicking the deal into touch. According to the Blackpool Press feed he is about to sign a new contract with the Tangerines.

Richly deserved and has done everything he has been asked for the good of the team without quibble. This contract is a good incentive to keep him going until he is pushing for a place in the starting line-up come November. Well done Freddie!

Elliott Loan Move on Hold
at 17:34:21

Hope we pursue Nuttall option as well as we need to share the workload around as it will be a long season for Norwood and Jackson if our injured strikers suffer further setbacks. Still need a Centre Back unless we are going to offer a contract to one of the trialists.

Third QPR Judge Bid Was Rejected - Report
at 18:35:14

Pugh, the QPR alternative cost them nothing apart from a signing on bonus, so they probably had one last try, particularly with the Bart move now happening. Will be very, very surprised if Judge goes now as I think Lambert and the team are now focussing on the opening game. Evans, hopefully would have learnt about the problems Hurst encountered with late departures last season. Two more incoming please, 1 centre back and one full back although at this late stage they are unlikely to take part in on Saturday.

Bialkowski's Millwall Loan Switch "at 99 Per Cent" as Blues Close in on Elliott Loan

A quick fix for both clubs which gets a hefty wage out of the club for a year whilst picking up another striker which was on our required list. Just need to sort out the back four with a Centre Back and Full Back.

Town's Judge Price Tag Too High for QPR?
at 11:40:10

Asking price should be £1M+ and no caving in at the last minute like we did with transfers out last season. The question I raise would be how much would a replacement cost us given our spending power, therefore we must now keep our assets and get him to honour the contract he signed with better terms than his original one. Things we do not know is whether promises were made to bring players in if he signed or whether a change of family circumstances may have changed the landscape. Unfortunately we only know what comes through the rumour mill.

New Judge Bid Rejected Report
at 11:05:38

Think the comment about the player wants to go is a sweetener for the QPR fans while trying to create uncertainty in our ranks. He said he was enjoying his football with us and was getting regular games, McCarthy said his international place was not in jeopardy playing in league 1 so hard to see why he would move after signing a 2 year deal with better terms only a few months ago. Wonder if his Agent is trying to make something happen out of nothing. Hope he stays but if he wants to go it needs to happen quickly, at the right price and the money investing back into strengthening the team.
