    Fair play to EA, first time I've gone on the Web App in months to get the SBC done. Still not going to get me to actually play the game though.

    Well we’ve missed out on McGeehan
    Quite how you don’t manage to sign a player who isn’t wanted by their club (who are only like 6 league places higher than us), who desperately wanted to come back, the manager wanted back and half of his family are Portsmouth fans and live down here I don’t know
    Anyway that’s our best midfielder gone

    Heard this new shirt sponsorship is worth 50m a year, you know.

    The PFA have come out and said they haven’t been consulted on the salary cap rules which could make it unlawful
    Also basically called it out for the shambles it is
    Wonderful stuff

    I’d buy a Fulham top if that was the sponsor

    I'd take it to be honest. Would be different to the standard RandomBettingCompanyBet sponsors most of the league has. Miss having sponsors like Pizza Hut.

    I’m really hoping they at least have an inquest when all of this is over and publicly shame the clubs that have tried to cheat the system with this season ending early thing
    Fleetwood couldn’t afford to end the season but suddenly have the money for Callum Camps, Whelan and Rossiter to line the middle of the park hmmmm ok pal

    The weird crossover we have with the Wrestling world now is weird. Get Steve Austin commenting on Tony Khan's Instagram when he posts after a win.

    Ignoring the sponsor, that kit is lush, and is everything a proper football kit should be.

    Plain and simple, but well designed, looks mint.

    Our chairman is saying he doesn't think it'll be put in place this season, and he's not bothered what the decision is as we're pretty much playing to the cap limit already. If you're going to introduce a cap, it's for the season not some half arsed attempt when teams have signed half a new squad

    Shahid Khan’s come out and said no drastic changes this time around so think we’ll sign 3 or 4 players and that’ll be it. Wouldn’t surprise me if two of them were Babel and Harrison Reed either.

    Improve the supporting cast around Mitrovic a little bit and strengthen at the back and you'll be fine IMO

    LCB, RB, Harrison Reed (and maybe another Centre-Mid if we can’t keep Zambo), and a Winger (Babel) and I think that’ll be us.

    Buy Chambers please, hes coming off an injury but I think £15m with a couple of mil add ons is a good deal

    If we're selling Zambo I'd take Chambers, but he's not a good enough Defender to be a Centre-Back in a relegation scrapping team (insert Arsenal joke here).

    Ideal world we're starting next season in about a month with a Midfield three of Reed, Anguissa; Onomah. Think that's the most balanced three we could have for next season.

    Well the turkeys have voted for Christmas
    Oh and almost every day some new British player is jumping over to Europe (we’ve lost Burgess and McGeehan to Belgium)
    So this is just going to be a talent drain

    On the positive side this could be the end for the EFL, they’ve done something that they have been pre warned is likely illegal on multiple fronts, that’s been organised at a reckless and dangerous speed (EFL report pointed out that basically every salary cap in sports took 1-2 years from conception to actually be organised, this has been done in about 3 months)
    When this inevitably goes down in flames the entire EFL board has to go immediately

    Luckily we are winning the league next season so we only have to deal with this cap for one year at least.

    You sign Ayunga, we sign Taylor. There’s levels to this game and you ain’t winning x

    So I just found out that this cap includes bonuses
    So if a team who has spent their 2.5m of cap wins the EFL Trophy and the League Cup their players don’t get a single penny in bonuses

    Just found out that the Joe Bryan Card is the joint highest rated Left-Back in FIFA history.

    Guess he's officially the best Left-Back in the world then.
