Because we never had the money for him and his club probably wouldn't accept our we give you 2 million now and you pay us 16 million to get him back in 18 months time payment plan.....

Sullivan just walked away as he has too much integrity for clubs that like to do business in such a manner.
At least we have the best fans in the world to go along with the worst owners.

This made me chuckle :lol:

For me Ayew was one of the most frustrating footballers to watch since Boa Morte. Headless chicken type player with the ball at his feet and continually ignored / missed the killer though ball, only to run into another dead end due to greed.
Lets not pretend he was prolific. Yes he grabbed a few goals, but for me was poor for the price.

I can't understand why we would sell Ayew with no replacement and already little attacking options to a rival.

Why would you send Oxford out on loan if Obiang is out for a long time?

We have seen how small our squad is in recent games and they have further reduced it.

And to top it all off, we aren't even close to being safe. If it's true that they have no interest in the cups, why are they doing their best to sabotage the league as well? Because we are going to have a massive task of staying up, even if all our players were suddenly fit for most of the remaining games.

The kids sent out on loan were the same kids that struggled against Shrewsbury and Wigan, perhaps Moyes sanctioned loaning them out to give them first team game time elsewhere as they are not ready for the Prem yet....jus sayin.

Jinxed .... I am shattered (emotionally and tiredness )

should I and all of us go to bed or stay up hoping for a last minute midfielder from Bath City on a loan with an option to buy ?

Joking aside, it was never really ‘alive’ to begin with was it? We all knew it really.

2 signings, and Cullen returning from loan.

It's actually more dire than I laid out.

I've got some news for everyone.

Everyone below us playing tonight (besides West Brom) have picked up points.

As you were. :(

No time to complete Dendonker deal - only had 31 days!!!

Never had any intention of signing him.

Doesn't matter who they are, our squad is now down to something like 14 people.

We needed the bodies. Really. We can't even train 11-a-side unless we bring in a bunch of prepubescent kids, now.

They were the kids considered to be good enough to be involved and have also been on the bench during our injury crisis. With them gone, who's left? We still have injuries, we have sold more of the squad so are we now looking at the youth players who weren't good enough to play those games?

15-20 goals and assists for what turned out to be in effect a £2 million fee seems excellent value to me.

Just had a massive go at the wife. Ultimately it’s her fault we’re in this mess. If she stopped buying all those toys we wouldn’t be in this mess. She’s probably covered Marino’s wage
