    Conor Wilkinson and Joss Labadie signed.

    Really, really happy with them, if this is the sort of signings we're making this summer, then we should be up there this season.

    Dependant on wage & agents etc - somebody were supposedly offering £10k a week for a defender.. (Ipswich?)

    You’d probably expect to see £15k-£25k hazarding a wild guesstimate

    It's just my brother is a painter and has been painting houses in Larne, alot of the Larne players " With Families "live in the area " New houses" around 150-180k.
    Most of the players are from Belfast so only about 10/15 miles away, So the players are at least living rent free as no one in the right mind is moving from Belfast to Larne that's unbelievable for the level of football no one could turn that down.

    Another great signing in Manny Monthe.

    Feel like we're really going all out this summer to sign better players.

    We’ve not got any players but we’ve announced a 10m investment in Fratton Park to fix a load of stuff up and we’ve bought our training ground and the health club that was on the site
    I’d say that’s a fairly positive week

    New CEO seems to understand football too
    Saying Cowleys need 2 or 3 transfer windows to build their team

    Fleetwood and Morecambe in the first few games and Harrogate and Mansfield in the Papa John's thing. God it actually seems depressingly real now...

    welcome its extremely grim
    just wait until Accrington turn you over 3-0, then the meltdown will be real

    Thing is, that will actually happen.

    To make it even worse Pompey away, one of the grounds I haven't been to before (adding new grounds to the list is the only positive from being in that league) is on a Tuesday night in December. Awesome.

    The Kass Stad in mid January should be fun though ;)

    That’s three signed this week who all played 20+ championship games last season, a positive start for us I think
    Still got to find some more match winners but it’s a decent spine to build

    Just read on Twitter that Bruno has played 84 games, starting 72 since the end of the first lockdown…. And people are claiming he isn’t up to it after this Euros, ridiculous.

    I’d keep the thread on topic and talk about Boro signings but you know………

    Why would clubs in the Championship not cheat FFP when the punishment for doing so and relegating another club is a 100K fine?

    Hope Wycombe do sue them, madness that that fine is all that has come from it.

    Jacob Carney signed for Sunderland, very good young keeper.

    Oh yeah I absolutely hate Wycombe, in a perfect world they'd both be down (looking at you Rotherham), but to allow blatant cheating get punished with a 100K fine is madness mind.

    So who is overpaying for Doku this summer? It feels like something Real Madrid would do

    He’s an interesting one - seemed to go downhill after rejecting a contract at Sheff United but heard something around him still being on his original contract. Loved him here - he has an absolute ping on him & seemed to add a couple of goals to it

    Any reason why Wembley is used so much in Euro 2021? Like why isn't the match played in Denmark in Parken Stadion instead? Is it because England was one of the few countries that allowed for the competition in to the country?
