    Joel Randall

    That's a good and very bullish position to take and it's great to see us in the position to take it, but if this is the club's thinking, it's also sort of an admission that at this moment in time he isnt actually worth that much. Which from the grammar in your post you seem to be accepting...

    Not sure what you're saying here mate, are you saying the £1M price tag is just to put off other clubs other than those willing to pay over the odds but our valuation is probably a lot lower?

    Joel Randall

    I agree with most of what you say here SJ, it's a little farcical to pretend that transfer fees aren't widely known and useully turn out to be as reported, but it is a line often trotted out by our club (and others), my point is that others knowing what's in our wallet works both ways...

    Joel Randall

    I feel that we maybe over valuing Joel a bit based on half a season in L2. A £1M price tag is probably too rich for L1, and at the moment he's still a punt for a championship club, so they will also no doubt be worried about shelling out that much. What we are seeing here though is the flipside...

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    You don't have to sell Jayden to me Rosey, I love the man and I agree he wasn't given the opportunity to shine at Preston (bit like Ajose with us...waits for avalanche!), just trying to view it dispassionately as I magine any buying club will. It just doesn't look like Preston are taking the...

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    You're right I have misquoted him, but I think my points still stand. I'm not convinced that based on evidence available to them, another championship club will be willing to take a punt. I agree he's too good for L2 and i'm sure if he did come down to L2 non of us would want him going anywhere...

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    I dont really agree with Matt Taylor. Although I loved Stockley when he was here and would agree that his performance with us earned him his chance at championship level, his record since being at Preston doesn't suggest he's earn the right to continue at that level as he doesn't appear to have...

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    I think it highly unlikely that we'd get him back but come the end of the window, in the current climate, Preston might be glad for any easing on their budget, particularly if it gets him back in the shop window.

    Welcome Sam Stubbs

    Looks exactly what we need, pleased with this.

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    I think Robchave has a point. For all Tisdale's reputation for "playing football the right way" and the flowing passing football he's known for, in his last couple of seasons the football that got us to Wembley twice was ironically pretty route one a lot of the time. I'm sure that front three...

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    That might be true Pete but his spells with us were also the only time he was playing week in week out. "The more I practice, the luckier I get"!

    Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    Personally living out of a suitcase half the time 8000 miles from home, moving from pillar to post and the problems that creates forming friendships and language barriers with little time to learn, doesn't sound a particularly good lifestyle to me. He didn't exactly light up the world on his...

    Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    You do realise my comments relate to the bloke in the article not Ethan? However at present we don't know whether in 5 years time Ethan may well be wishing he'd stayed with us for a season or two or moved on to a L1 club.

    Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    What I've learnt from these boards is that the majority of people have no considerations in life beyond money, so based on that I expect that some will say that his time at Chelsea was worthwhile. Personally I find this incredibly sad, a young man with a failed career who's missed out on his...

    Randell Williams joins Exeter City from Watford

    Couldn't agree more, it's a horrible Americanism for geeky statisticians as far as i'm concerned. Sounds like it might have come from American football to me. I personally don't remember it being used in football until relatively recently. Like you Sturtz I grew saying someone "made" a goal, but...

    Ajose

    Personally I didn't see it that way, but hey its all just opinion on here so we'll have to agree to disagree on this!

    A "trust 'RUN' club" Grammar Paul!!!!!;)

    Ajose

    Well i'll be jiggered, you're right. I'd have put money on Parkes and Martin joining at the same time, thank god I'm not a betting man! However I don't really agree with you about the reason for Martin losing his place, and there was plenty of discussion about it on these boards at the time and...

    Ajose

    In all fairness Mike, Cureton did naff all for us either when he came back on loan. Didn't he only get one goal (and I think a lot of people thought that was Woodman's). He then got another 20 for us next season though so as you say nothing to do with lack of talent. Back to Ajose though, he's...
