I would very much doubt that Lyle taylor is going anywhere this season.Relegation would be a near certainty if he was allowed to go and neal ardley would be receiving his p45 come the end of the season!!!. Carlton cole,a replacement,i think not !!!!!!

Re Wilson, when he had a leader on the pitch next to him he was very good for us. When he didn’t he was absolutely woeful.

Unfortunately, the woeful outwore the good times.

He’s steady enough for L2 though, so I wouldn’t be too concerned.
Cheers. He's got big, Sean Raggett size boots to fill unfortunately for him!

Billy Knott down to a T unfortunately, nice lad half our fans said we didn't suit his game, other half said he wasn't good enough. Sadly I think it's the latter, he's had so many chances and grabbed none, when he scored against Leeds early in his career with us I thought we might have a star on our hands, but that was as good as it got.
Yeah, we've had the same here. Bar his contributions in a 3 or 4 game at the end of last season, we've not really seen anything in his year here.

Bit more on Vaughan, 18 month contract and Sky say the fee was “in the region of 300k”. My guess is we’ve paid much less than that up front, but have a massive promotion add on which will bump the fee up to that mark. Apparently Vaughan has taken a big pay cut to come (I bloody hope so anyway because he was on 15k a week at Sunderland). He’s a smart cookie though, he knows Sunderland have a big chance of going down and has virtually ensured himself another shot at the Championship next season with this move.

Apparently had a bid turned down by Rochdale for Joe Bunney and also going after Van Veen from Scunny. Desperately need a striker.

Bunney hasn't been a striker for a while, he's been a converted left back for at least a season now.

Any Blackburn fans fancy a chuckle then hop onto “Claret and Banter”. Bradford fans not happy about our new strikers, whining about parachute payments and both of us buying promotion. It’ll be hilarious if both Sunderland and Hull drop down and join them.

Sold Lee Frecklington to Lincoln City, great move for them if he stays fit. Bought Smith from Bury as predicted earlier. I hope mr Manager of the Month has a plan in mind here. Wablo credentials increasing daily.

I wouldn't take what is said on there to seriously, I stopped posting on there when people were moaning about there being no hot water in the mens ( no not a joke ).

Regarding parachute payments though, I think we and every other club that didn't receive them have a right to feel a bit aggrieved. If we had received what you had, we could have easily paid our debt and had money for a push to go straight back up, instead we just suffered 2 admins and 6 years in league 2.

Taking a pay-cut from 15k to what I presume is somewhere between 5-10k doesn't seem that smart given his age and injury record.

Quite pleased with the Williams/Knott loan swap.

Not really worked out for either of them at their current club, but both have talent - sensible move both ways round.

Just hope Knott can reproduce his Bradford form. And plays in a midfield three...

Ball retention is his problem, it was no surprise that he dropped down to L2 because he simply gives it away too often, always a great effort from him though.
