Rashica IN...

before the (next) Lock(down).

The latest news today on Birimingham Live is that "Minor Details" are holding up the Rashica deal.

The problem we have is that we overpay very average footballers, that is why we can never sell any for a decent fee

There is not a chance of us selling the likes of Taylor / Lansbury / Nyland / (the Croatian goal keeper) etc... before the end of their contracts - who else is going to pay them 30 - 40k a week - no club in the premier league or in Europe, we are stuck with them - and I don't blame them.

To be honest do we really think that they are bothered if they play or not?, as long as the pay goes into their bank each month that is all they are interested in.

I cant see the likes of Lansbury losing sleep worrying if he is going to play tonight?

As Dean said we just keep adding players to our squad, and this has to stop.

Nyland isn't on anywhere near that and will go I reckon. Kalinic might be tougher, we need him to play regularly and do well so someone actually wants him! Bit like Martinez did for Reading, maybe a championship loan might help him. Lansbury though - no chance of shifting him.

There was a tweet at the end of last week from John Percy of the Telegraph saying we had bid for Tammy. The link when I clicked it had been removed and now the tweet has been deleted by the looks of it. Something in this then maybe as normally hes seems to be quite a reliable source?

There was a fake Percy account tweeting this out, could be that you spotted that, it wasn't obvious.

There are, but apparently they can cause you to go blind.

I didn't think we would be able to shift Hogan either though, so haven't given up hope on Lansbury and Nyland going. Wouldn't need much of a fee now to show as a profit for FFP purposes as amortation will have lowered their value. Suspect we may have to pony up a leaving fee to get rid of the wages though.

And I've been to Croatia a few times, if the female population of Serbia is anything like theirs he was ridiculously spoiled for choice.

I can just imagine the female population of Croatia, when the next plane from the UK lands, thinking 'oh bloody hell, our choices are spoilt again.'

They'll get loaned out and we'll carry a lot of the cost, until the contracts wind down.
Shit happens when poor decisions get made.

He is hardly likely to swap the Chelsea bench for ours though
He wouldn't need to though, would he? A front line of Tammy, Watkins and Traore, backed up by McGinn, JG and Luiz. Bring in L-Cheek as well and we'd be flush with talent and options :-)

Hadn't Smith said he sees Ollie as an out and out centre forward?

Encouraging though we've  had some down and out centre forwards of recent times and loved Tammy and not watakins .
I penned OW  premier league 11-14 goals ! 15+ would be amazing

Yes. Signing a second striker would be nice, but they have to be accepting of fighting with Watkins for the shirt.
