    Your criticisms of the transfer window seem to have morphed into a hate campaign against the Board. Lots of baseless accusations and innuendo I.e Does RE have a say in player recruitment.

    Every board should be accountable to the fans and open to criticism but you seem to have taken it to another level.

    Your major whinge is that we should have spent a lot more money on players than what we have done and you keep citing 200M to spend.

    As I understand it, we get approx 100M for one season in the Prem. The rest is parachute payments. I'm most certainly not in the know but educated guess where the 100M has gone.

    60M towards new ground
    10M on developing new stand
    10M on additional wages
    15-20M on transfers

    Do the math but I don't see a lot of additional money sloshing around. Therefore, you are either advocating spending the parachute money before its received or taking out huge loans in a desperate attempt to stay up.

    Either way it's a desperate gamble that could destroy all of the good work over the last fifteen years and plunge us into a downward spiral.

    Basically every post you make, phrased in different ways, is to spend money that we do not have. Are you totally unaware of the damage done to clubs who have gambled either getting up or trying to stay up?

      It's just a boring shitroutine, which we've seen on here time and again.

      Thing is he might have started out genuinely thinking some of the stuff that he said on here. But he saw it got a reaction and has upped the routine over time to increase the reaction. He's like Talksport radio hosts who talk bollocks, that even they probably don't believe in, in order to get people phoning in

      And I bet he also doesn't really believe half the dog shit he comes up with on this board under his hundreds of names

          He's a bit weird but not as weird as the other trolls on this board, especially the very strange Watford fans who come on here. Mind you, our failure is all they have left to cheer on

        Rationale words RR.
        But how do you explain the Giles situation? Why give away an experienced full back and leave yourself so exposed if you got an injury there?
        Moreover the deal doesn't include any obligation to buy, so how was that in anyway in our interests?

          Perhaps Cuba, the player just wanted away. Whats the point in keeping a player that isn't happy with us?

            Agree, the Giles situation does seem odd. Understandable if there was a contractual obligation to buy at the end of the loan period but there is not.

            Something has obviously gone on, can only presume he has not settled at all at the club.

              You said Giles had an attitude problem. You said if he didn't want to be here we'd be better off without him.

              Remember?

                    Massive ask of an 18 year old who has played about an hour of adult football.

                    Moving Bell significantly weakens the centre backs, and means our centre back replacement option is Potts. Not ideal all round.

                    Apparently the Japanese bloke can play there but I think he's right footed so not ideal again. Also he's still in a settling in period that means he's probably going to have to make his debut in a high pressure situation against one of the best teams in the world when he could've been eased in gently.

                To be completely fair, some of what he says has been correct.

                He suggested we should sign Townsend for example and was shot down, yet a month later we signed him and he's been a success, by and large.

                He highlighted we have a massive lack of cover and now injuries are building up.


                I don't agree we should be spunking money up the wall, and I think Woodrow is a decent option for us, so I'm not completely agreeing with him, I'm just saying he's not always wrong

                  Don't remember him getting shot down for saying we should sign Townsend at all.

                  Think everyone thought he would be a decent addition.

                  Plus I don't think anyone really disagrees with the notion that maybe the squad could've been strengthened in Jan. But his relentless, absolyte relentless tirade of posts about it is so fucking annoying.

                  He was doing this all last season as well. Absolutely in meltdown whenever we didn't win despite being on the fringes of the play offs.

                  I'm sure he's not like this in real life, but he comes across completely unhinged on here. It's embarrassing.

                    He absolutely was
                    'he'll want too much in wages'
                    'hes injury prone'
                    'who does he replace'
                    Were some of the comments

                    I do agree on the rest though

                      Agreed.

                      SOME of his comments are right.

                      He does, however, move the goalposts with his arguments when he's proved wrong.
                      The fact he doesn't post when things go well and he uses multiple posting names, often on the same thread to make it look like others are as obsessed as he is has made him a laughing stock though.

                        Yeah agree with that.

                        I actually think he's wrong about cover up front being the issue.

                        We've lost Nakamba and Lockyer to long term injuries, cover for them should've been the priority. I'm sure we tried but we will see how stretched we are there if Lokonga and Doughty are out for a while

                          An older head at the back would have been the priority signing for me tbh. We may well have tried
                          It's all very well signing championship players but it takes time to adjust.
                          It's arguably taken Chong 5 months to get to the level he's now at so any championship player we'd brought in in January possibly wouldn't have been up to speed until the end of the season anyway.

                        His constant posts about lack of cover insinuates that RE/the board were complacent in the window and didn't try and look at other options.

                        How on earth does he know this?

                          Not just complacent, he accused GS of outright lying when he said we'd tried a few things that hadn't come off.

                          On Planet Cuba, we were seemingly all set for a spree at the end of January then it all went out of the window because we beat Brighton.

                            That's my point really, his criticisms have taken a sinister turn without a shred of evidence.

                            I have no issue with different opinions but if you are going to constantly post the same criticism (10 times per day), at least have some substance behind it*

                            *Signing Paddy McNair to replace Kabore is not substance.

                              To be fair to Cuba I don't think he/she said that. I think the point was that the win at Everton and then against Brighton and the endless good press we had because we had been on an improved run could have papered over the cracks.
                              Yes Cuba is indeed an attention seeker but he has called the lack of cover out right trough January. Losing Sambi will be colossal.

                                He suggested we send Kabore back to free up another loan. In the same post he came up with random full backs as cover for Kabore, including Paddy McNair (who can't get a game at mud-table Middlesbrough).

                              Without getting to drawn into it, everything that could have gone against, went against us.

                              Retail dropping on its arse, huge increased costs in building materials etc. It did leave a funding gap.

                              I'm sure that the new stadium would have been built regardless but the financing vehicle may have been slightly different.
