The last minute goal in the home game against Tranmere to take us into extra time will stay with me for ever.

(Somehow posted on the wrong thread... 😖)

I'm only worried because of FFP. Or does that only take wages into account?

I seem to recall this thinking under Randy when we were splashing the cash

Isn't he in the last year of his contract ? 4m is pretty lumpy if so.



4m is peanuts in today's transfer world. 100m for Pogba???

Fair enough but I'm not sure that Pogba was ever willing to sign for Villa as Pointy's backup

Fortunately Randy's actions are on record as a "guide on how not to do it". Hopefully Dr X has read the guide from cover to cover.

There's so much wrong with that comparison that I don't know where to start! Age? Ability?? Resale value?? Shirt Sales??? Man Utd's revenue vs Ours?!

A top top signing and a leader in the centre that we have lacked for a long time. The man is a beast and leaves it all on the field. He will be an integral cog on our promotion push

4 million does seem slightly high.

Middlesbrough fans probably thought 500,000 for Andy Townsend was a bit steep in 97.
He was 33 or 34 at the time.  If like them we get promoted and stay up it will be worth the outlay.

We need solid professionals to lead/encourage our younger squad members. If Jedinak comes in and teaches
the likes of Tshibola Grealish good habits, can you put a price on that ?
