Owls are still trying to sign Marshall on a full deal if not loan mm statement BBC news 1 hour ago

Believable17 Unbelievable2

I posted the latest "horses mouth" situation re Ben Marshall last night but only a few even got-it.
In simple terms so there's no misunderstanding this time - Ben Marshall wants to sign for Owls (LAST WEEK!) but MM wants Stoke to - "be nice and GIVE him to us " ??
He's worth more than Stoke are asking, - he'll be a good player even at Championship level , - Megson wants him !, - the fans want him ! - BUT MM wants him for nowt !!

Agree6 Disagree11

ALF memories anyone?

Agree8 Disagree2

It's MM's money he can do what he wants with it ---
BUT ....... don't tell the fans you're going to back the manager , and that you're going to spend 5m on the team , then risk losing the best prospect we've seen at Hillsboro for years for the sake of saving a few quid.
After all once Ben's signed a contract with us MM could sell him and make a sizeable profit if he needed to, so it really is a no-brainer for all ------ so you'd think?

Agree7 Disagree1

No alf was a punt this kid can play if he stays at Stoke by next season he will be worth 3 million so anything up to 1 mill now is pinching him now but I no what your saying we sure like dragging our arses when it comes to paying for players at least by Sunday we will no one way or other just hope we get him on a full contract cheque please mm

Agree7 Disagree1

Agree to a point ALF was a punt, But surely, Compared to ALF, O'Grady and Lowe were a pricier, Less scoring punt?

Agree4 Disagree5

Totally agree no one knew whether le fondre could play above league 2 essentially. We know Ben Marshall can play at this level it wont be wasted money, hes the catalyst to promotion for me.

Agree6 Disagree0

O'Grady's physical attributes and work rate certainly create opportunities and when Lowe actually gets a game he generally scores. So to call their signings a punt is a bit off the mark.

Agree5 Disagree1

"Horses mouth" does not understand the workings of a football club. mandaric says he will send another 5 million on the club this season. This will include covering losses as i understand from the statement the club is running at a loss in this league. Increased attendances will ertainly help the situation and allow more to be spent on players. With Semedo, Prutton, Jones, Jones, O'Grady, Lines and Bywater plus loan players the figure on players will be 1.5 million this season. Just look what we spent on agents last season that tells you we are paying out good money. Get off Mandaric back and understand he saved this club from the brink where we had been put by bad management and an ill informed fans group.

Agree4 Disagree0

I heard that we had already made an 11 million profit this season.

Agree0 Disagree1

That was just a transfer of funds from one corporate entity to another. In other words a paer exercise. We did not make a penny.

Agree0 Disagree3

"O'Grady's physical attributes and work rate certainly create opportunities and when Lowe actually gets a game he generally scores. So to call their signings a punt is a bit off the mark.".....................................By punt, I ment that they had not really done anything at any level higher than ALF had, Thats all.

Hope we can get Ben Marshall! it will put a few thousand on each home attendance if they can sign him

Apparently Hull manager Nick Barmby said fancy Ben Marshall but he is to sign for Wednesday. From Mandaric comment they are also speaking to someone else in adition to Marshall.

Hull or Wednesday. No decision.

Great A.Player. is that the one of fifa where you create it from scratch and dont give it a name. Why put a 'rumour' on when there is infact no information in it. i could have told everyone that we were going to sign 'someone'. yes fans what youve all been waiting for, 'someone'.
