      How do you know that? What he knows and what he can report are two different things. Bozza knew about this too but said nothing.

      Bring back Chris Hughton.

      granted he may have but im assuming that his radio silence about it means he didn't know

      A lot of what we have on this thread is a lot of whingers.
      If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      You're probably right but I do know sometimes his hands are tied. Best the club keep complete radio silence about deals, since two have now gone up the swannie with last-ditch gazumping bids.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!

      You're beyond retarded, I can only think you're on a wind up now. Firstly, Kuszczak wasn't on far more than £20k, he was on LESS than £20k basic. You admit Poyet spent a hell of a lot of money (£12-£14m in the CHAMPIONSHIP) and he still didn't get us promoted! And now you're using it as a justification to criticise the current transfer negotiations? Surely it should be the other way round: Poyet spent loads of money and didn't get promoted, so spending less will achieve the same target at a lower cost.

      Finally, it seems you have an obsession with transfer value. If this guy cost £2m you wouldn't say, "I haven't heard of him, he must be shit". You'd say, "I haven't heard of him, but he cost £2m so he must be ****ing quality". In no other walk of life is it a disappointment to get something at a lower value. You wouldn't buy a house for £200,000 but then be pissed off you weren't able to pay £400,000. Your whole approach stinks of a 13 year old child who hasn't the first clue about finance or football dealings.

      If this guy is rubbish, why does it matter? He was free, and we still have the £10,000,000 left to buy a decent striker (the position which costs the most amount of money to replace).
      You may as well give up. So far in this thread, we've heard criticism of the Holla signing because:

      -he's "a Dutch second division player" (firstly, he's not, and secondly, the poster who said that would have been sat here with a semi if we'd signed Adam Clayton who was and still is a second division player)

      -the Dutch league must be crap because only a few teams win it (wait- exactly like La Liga and the Premier League, you mean?)

      -he's available in late August on a free transfer (like...oh hey...Tomasz Kuszczak? Yep, he's really shit).

      -the piece de resistance from Kev comes with his assertion that decent players available on frees can afford to wait it out and be choosy about their preferred option, yet, as far as Holla is concerned, it MUST be because he's shit.

      Overall, a quite amazingly poor series of arguments here that really are making the posters in question look pretty dim.

      For my money: I know nothing of Holla. But he's not going to cost much, so he's hardly a gamble for the club, and it leaves us plenty of cash- we'd like to think- for some bigger signings in the next week or so. Clearly somebody thinks he can do a job, and for no fee, it's a no-lose deal for us. If he works hard, can pass the ball, win the ball, and chip in with a goal or two, then that already puts him ahead of one or two others (I wouldn't say Ince or JFC have started the season at all well).

      Give the guy a break: I don't know why but I've got a good feeling for this one. Surely a bargain signing who goes on to surprise a few people is a positive thing?
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      It's the same sad foot in mouth brigade that got a semi moaning about Teixera. Turns out he's a great prospect.

      As for Holla, why the **** are you moaning about him.

      Please please **** off. I hope I am I'm earshot of any of this drivel at the Amex. I can't wait.
