    Dale. I just wanna take this opportunity to say you talk out of your fucking ass crack. Having a pop at people on here who actually care about the state of our club. Just so you can support a hierarchy who could finance all kinds of infrastructure if they wanted to. But they don't. Anyone who...

    Miami or New York or European/British takeover.

    LEP headline should read "Chelsea cup money finally spent... on floodlights, but not players".

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Well let's see how that pans out. I think it'll just be Leddo sat here til 2026. This squad is full of guys who never want to leave. No one's desperately trying to grab a L1 starting berth elsewhere. And North End adore retaining squad filler. Ridsdale: "Emil... I want to talk about..." Riis...

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Why would he want to go? Settled in north west with a wife & baby - what motivation would there be? I think he'd be content being a championship squad player and waiting for his extra year to be triggered cos... "we can't find better'. I'd happily move on large numbers of this squad but we've...

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Ledson. Sadly we'd have to pay some of his wages for that to happen and he's got one of Ridsdale's special extra year clauses in his contract. So, probably won't wanna go anywhere. He could end up being here eight years or more. At other clubs that would mean entering club legend territory. At...

    Should PNE sack Peter Ridsdale?

    Maybe Riddler should think about us adopting a play style, that would actually put a spotlight on the talents of our best players in terms of goals, assists, crosses, take ons, passing, possession etc. Then we might attract interest in our players. Maybe Riddler should stop offering contract...

    I think Riis most certainly will be sold, whether he wants to go or not. The club will be seeking to bring in some proper transfer income for the first time in 5 years. #wellrunclub Much like the Chelsea cup money, let's see how much of that revenue we see spent on players.

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Beyond Storey this is just a big issue with the club. It's how they see everything whether it be the concourse burgers, the Cat 3 academy, the standard of football, our squad depth and whatever else. The primary recruitment focus seems to be acquiring players who can then be retained for 5, 6...

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    The players with the second and third most interceptions both got relegated. It's a stupid stat to base anything on, unless we're clutching at straws. Storey is a bog standard championship defender with a fairly basic skillset. Horrid to watch with the ball at his feet, but will graft and hoof...

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Surprising that Lowe's zoom presentation couldn't seal the deal on its own. The brand. The family vibe. The supreme wit. Maybe Joe just didn't fancy re-training as a wingback. Does Williams realise the huge opportunity he's turning down here? He'd have only been one measly...

    Summer 2024 : Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Back in May 2022 Riddler described the next transfer window as "one of the most exciting summers we will have in a long time, a big opportunity...". Yet the only permanent deals we did that entire season were Brady, Woodburn & Onomah. We spunked our money on loans instead. He also said "we...

    The manager clearly doesn't know. So little chance fans will. We need to ask the master of contractors about what other nasty surprises lay in store for us after Woodburn and Bauer.

    Alan Browne - 400

    We reward players who will show loyalty even if that means as in Bauers case, that they sit on the sidelines for three years. This is what we do as a club. Time and time again. The club calls it "honourable". It was the same thinking behind the decade long link up with Just Sport. Or the...

    Woodman also has an extra year clause. As do Cornell, Seary, Potts & McCann.

    Alan Browne - 400

    Ledson, Hughes, Brady & Lindsay have all got extra year clauses in their contracts. I've no idea if the others do or not.

    We could have a higher wage bill if we had a functioning academy and some semblance of player trading to bring in increased revenue. We are stuck fighting FFP year after sodding year because this hierarchy have no inclination to do anything bar the bare fucking minimum.

    Don't have to look too far. Bauer got a three & half year deal. He turns 32 in October.

    CONFIRMED Retained List

    72 years old. No remit for success. No accountability. 100% job security. 300k+ per year. No wonder he's smug. It's a perfect setup which allows Peter to enjoy his semi-retirement years to the fullest. Trevor used to be ringing him up 10 times a day. Craig & Kathryn certainly are not. So Peter...

    CONFIRMED Retained List

    Considering we gave Bauer a 3 & half year deal to do nothing... maybe we can pay Browne for 3 & half more years to go sit on his couch too. He might take a lesser wage for that. It would be the "honourable" thing to do. Following in the footsteps of other club legends like Izzy Brown and...
