    if the papers are to be believed, The are more players turning us down then the ones we can afford at the moment. The whole Strengthening of the squad is nowhere near premier league ready.

    And now a goalkeeper has turned us down, who would of easily been competion for Ryan. The whole situation is grim.
    Nothing like a bit of optimism

      I was saying back in June we need to get our signings complete early , but as usual it will be a last minute desperate signing or nothing, we are not premier league ready even in to the 4th game of the season , we all knew what we needed but looks like we are going to run out of time , fail to prepare , prepare to fail

      Are you the latest to come on here just to moan. We do lack negative trolls on here.

      By the way, believing everything you read in the paper is not necessarily a good idea!

      Our owner one would assume made the cash to pay for the ground via holding his nerve and taking a few risks - obviously very good at this

      So no reason to doubt taking same approach to player fees - those holding out for higher amounts we won't pay will change their minds when only 48 hours until window closes

      Do you really believe they have made a mistake and deliberately left it late?
      No, of course not. Did I say that? I was responding to a post that said (in summary) keep the faith, believe in TB. If you follow the thread, I agree, the guy is a saviour for us, but my point is that TB can make mistakes. Tony Cascarino in Times a couple of weeks ago made point that our refusal to pay more than £40k pw may make life difficult; I dont know where he got that info from and even whether it is true but there is nothing in the recruitment process to date that suggests he is incorrect. TB has himself said that he has been surprised by the level of fees and wages required for PL. We have spent big, and may well spend big this week. I will gladly come on here and admit my concern was completely unfounded come Thursday at 2330 but there is something in my mind that just isn't quite right. I have put on another thread that we should perhaps have taken a chance on Dwamena given the situation and Zurich's response.

      Answer your own question and if it is no, answer why we are in this situation - is it just bad luck?

      We are cautious and unwilling, like pretty much all other PL clubs, to be ripped off or pay beyond our own valuation. If that means relegation I guess that's the way it's going to be .....frustrating but at least we'll still have a club at the end of it.

      I have been saying all summer that we have moved too slowly in the transfer market. Barber wnaking on and on about high prices. Well, the market price is the market price Mr Barber. Suck it up. Put up or shut up. OK, we have no control over a failed medical, but the lack of a decent striker or 2 has been a known problem for about 2 years, so where we are now is inexcusable...
      The PL market is what it is and I would have expected Barber to have realized that. You are NOT going to get a PL standard goalscorer for £5m. We could have got a pacey, big striker with a huge amount of potential for a £1m bung.

      We are now so close to the deadline we will end up fighting for scraps. The prices are going to go up because every club now realises how desperate we are to sign a PL standard goalscorer.

      18 chances against 10 men Saturday and we still couldn't score. That is really worrying.

      Yes but this is only one player. Why not really push out the boat and spend big bucks?

      Why leave it so late... ?....

      Because its really exciting :-)

      If for one am thrilled we are involved in the last minute scramble.... i know i know its against everything that is sensible...

      But for me its fun.
      I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.
