    Transfer Rumours 2021/22.

    I feel like like the main worry is about what is available. For all the talk of a 'buyers market' due covid and cost cutting, there hasn't been that many names on anyone's released lists that would make you excited if we signed them. I'm not worrying yet, but those six we have offers out for (if...

    Ryan Bowman..... (to Shrewsbury)

    Given that he tried to sign Akinde in January, I'm not completely sure he is done with the target men. When you have promising wingers like us, you kind of need a target man in the middle IMO.

    Ryan Bowman..... (to Shrewsbury)

    Interesting quote from their manager: "There is a shortage of free agents up top at the moment. We’ve ended up paying a fee for Ryan but I think it will be money well spent." I don’t want to get worried too early but the ‘buyers market’ doesn’t seem to have materialised as of yet, still very...

    Think Trapdoor’s post was joke… Agree Matt isn’t someone we should be looking at though

    Thank you Pierce Sweeney!!! (To Swindon Town)

    Have to think he was offered reduced terms based on the way MT spoke after the retained list was announced. Although his good season earned him a contract offer, it felt like MT always had other plans going forward. Imagine it's a similar story with Page, although maybe he was more likely...

    Transfers in/outs 2020/21 and Retained list

    He wasn't as resolute as you make it sound, it all depends if we can get 2 left backs signed on looking at his comments in the 'make or break' article. MT said he will look to give him opportunities in more attacking areas, but still indicated he will play the wing back role if we play 3 centre...

    Transfer Rumours 2021/22.

    I like the idea of having two guys who already know each others game pretty well, will aide with them settling in to rest of the group. Lets hope it's just more than two mates having a laugh with each other!

    Ollie Watkins

    I believe Paulo Gazzaniga's move from Gillingham to Southampton was higher than Ollie's basic fee, but Ollie's add ons have taken him past that fee by miles.

    https://gaschat.co.uk/thread/18093/joe-day?page=1 Looks like he has gone backwards in terms of development since joining Cardiff, according to Bristol Rovers fans. Always class at Newport though!

    Harry Lee and Sonny Cox

    My point was that even if they don't make it after their stint in a top academy, they still will have made more money than if they had stayed at City and not made it. So going to the academy is a no brainer, they can try their luck in League Two again if they get released.

    Harry Lee and Sonny Cox

    But if they find out their level is in League Two then they’ve lost the opportunity to earn a lot of money at a bigger club. For example Goss has now found his level in the lower leagues, but he’s made a hell of lot more money than someone like MJ has along the way. We can continue to point to...

    Ollie Watkins

    Lingard, Ward Prowse and Ollie all told by Southgate that they can leave the training camp after missing out, but have all decided to stay. Imagine that means they aren’t even on the back up list if Henderson and Maguire can’t prove their fitness.

    Ollie Watkins

    Really don’t understand the 4 right backs. Southgate saying TAA can also play CM, well how about take someone who plays there week in week out if you’re worried you haven’t got enough? Gutted for Ollie, only 2 out and out strikers in the side, some really poor decisions made imo.

    Transfer Rumours 2021/22.

    The same ‘highly regarded’ Jordan Cox that left Villa in September 2019? Unlikey to get him on loan from level 11 side Droitwich Spa.
