Just read we are interested in Elliott Grandin from Palace. My question is does Stuart Gray have the job of making enquiries about new players now meaning he's got the job.

Doesnt make any difference its paul aldridge who makes all the signings

Agree9 Disagree4

Doing the negotiations is different from deciding on the target. It was obviously Jones who decided on the transfers of his ex-players, although Aldridge carried out the business. In the absence of a permanent manager it makes sense for Gray to express his preferences. Interesting question.

After yesterdays games against blackpool I spoke with connor wickham and his dad and connor said he don't want to leave wednesday

Hope so! Could never afford his wages on perm deal though!

Agree11 Disagree6

The thing is he would be a massive investment as he would improve with us even if he cost us 3 mill in a year or 2 would be worth 10 plus. And I thought mm was a buisness man.

Agree6 Disagree1

Sunderland bought him for 8 we could never even come close to his valuation, especially when we can only sign players on 3 month contracts recently

Agree4 Disagree0

Just because he was bought for £8m that doesn't necessarily mean that's his worth now. Even now I reckon Sunderland would be both lucky and pleased to get 1/2 that back.
But he's just the sort of player the buying club can't really lose on, a potential asset, so if I were in MMs shoes I'd try to get him in and on the balance sheet if there's even half a chance.

Agree5 Disagree1

Even if MM prepared to put in extra funds, the FFP rules now in place could have an impact if we seen to overspend. Not 100% sure of penalties of this but potential transfer embargo, fine or points deduction.

Agree3 Disagree0

As good as Wickham is, if we could scrape 3or4 million it would be better spent buying 2 or 3 players who are considerably better than what we have. couldn't comprehend a club in our finacial position paying that kind of money for 1 player. What if he got seriously injured?

Agree7 Disagree3

Thats what insurance is for.

Agree4 Disagree2

Ah ah ah, mandaric buy wickham, yeah like that's going to happen.

Agree7 Disagree1

Insurance pays out if career ended etc, what about signing him then losing him for a long time thru injury? Leaves us in the sh#t! 2/3 players would be a better idea (doesnt matter because we avnt got any £££ tho).
