  1. I understand what deferred means but Barca are trying to force the player out of the club and get someone else to pay the deferred wages or pressure De Jong into signing a reduced contract which will effectively mean they don't have to pay the deferred wages. Also come out today they're threatening legal action against De Jong because they say they have evidence of criminal actions by the previous board in his 2020 contract renewal which could implicate all involved. But don't worry Frenkie, you can avoid being implicated if you just revert to the previous contract which (hey presto!) means Barca no longer have to pay those deferred wages and you've got a pay cut. So just to be clear; Barca claim to have evidence of their own criminal actions and want to use that to force a player into giving up the wages he's owed (and take a pay cut)
  2. Are Burnley really good, or Huddersfield really bad? Worried we didn't take our chances, surely Huddersfield get a couple of openings in the second half.
  3. Seriously, if there's something I'm missing please explain but personally I can't understand how any employer can refuse to pay wages it agreed to pay and that's viewed as OK? And that's regardless of the club the spending multi-millions on new players on large contracts. But that context only makes it worse.
  4. What's the arguement against that? Seems perfectly reasonable to me.
  5. Yeah, I'd be well satisfied being told I needed to work harder for a pay cut
  6. Been very well received, hard not to get excited with all the signings we're making and how with many he's been a big part of the decision for players joining. A lot of young players coming in which is a change from recent years. Team looked really good in first proper preseason game on Friday (albeit against League 1 Shrewsbury) and seems to be adapting to the change is style. He's given the media staff much more access to the team which is helping too. General feel is excitement. We've sold more season tickets this year than we did last. There's a real chance we have a bad start given the player turnover, younger squad and new style of play and if we do I hope there isn't too much of a quick pivot to getting on his and the players' backs. Patience will be key, even if we do really well this season I can see us taking some big losses due to naivety. Things being so different is a breath of fresh air. You won't catch me badmouthing Dyche though.
  7. Enjoying being a big fish in a small pond after being the opposite these past 6 years. Exciting seeing all the change, as things stand I'd expect us to be somewhere around 7th with all the changes and an inexperienced defence. Still very active in the market with some very good players leaving, just hope we can keep hold of McNeil, think he'll be Buendia-like at Championship level in a possession based side.
  8. Apparently Harwood-Bellis is almost done and Muric is top of the list if someone comes in for Pope. Would love to see Delap, McAtee or Palmer come in to bolster the attack. But getting some of our own players in is going to be more important as we've released a lot and will be expecting to sell a few more.
  9. Burnley finally announcing the worst kept secret that Vincent Kompany has been appointed manager. Very excited for the new season as it's all change both in playing style and players. Big transfer window coming up, we'll need at least 5 new starters (plus more to replace any players that are sold).
  10. Result: 3-1 ========== Home Team Manager: ClaretMatt Franchise: Feyenoord Players Info Scorers: O. BURKE x2, B.MEE Assists: A. MITROVIC, C. FASSNACHT x2 Clean Sheet: MoTM (if applicable): O. BURKE ========== Away Team Manager: @Hulk Franchise: Wolves Player Info Scorers: PAULINHO Assists: M. OBAFEMI Clean Sheet: MoTM (if applicable): ========== Match Report: Closer game than the scoreline suggests, Wolves took the lead with their first shot on target following a quick one-two on the edge of the area which PAULINHO despatched effortlessly. Feyenoord had their supersubs to thank for the win with BURKE equalising on 65 mins with his first action of the game. FASSNACHT found MEE from a corner which the Feyenoord captain headed home. A last minute third was acrobatically turned in by BURKE when FASSNACHT fired in a cross from near the corner flag. Good game, best of luck in the rest.
  11. Result: 1-1 ========== Home Team Manager: @Cartesian5th Franchise: Brentford Players Info Scorers: O. WATKINS Assists: SERGI CANOS Clean Sheet: MoTM (if applicable): CANOS ========== Away Team Manager: ClaretMatt Franchise: Feyenoord Player Info Scorers: K. MOORE Assists: A. MITROVIC Clean Sheet: MoTM (if applicable): ========== Match Report: Another game with LUIS MAXIMIANO in the Feyenoord nets keeping his side in the game during a first half of dominance from the home side. Brentford finally found a way past the keeper early in the second half via a long range strike by WATKINS. A late, sustained spell of pressure from the away side eventually led to an equaliser, MITROVIC flicking on a header to MOORE who's low drive went in off the post. Good game, you definitely deserved more than a point across the 2 games. Best of luck in the rest
  12. Result: 2-0 ========== Home Team Manager: ClaretMatt Franchise: Feyenoord Players Info Scorers: A. MITROVIC, C. FASSNACHT Assists: D. ORIGI Clean Sheet: LUIS MAXIMIANO MoTM (if applicable): A. MITROVIC ========== Away Team Manager: @Cartesian5th Franchise: Brentford Player Info Scorers: Assists: Clean Sheet: MoTM (if applicable): ========== Match Report: Close game where the home goalkeeper made the massive difference with a string of unlikely saves. Feyenoord took the lead with a rocket from MITROVIC and settled it with a 25 yard freekick scored by supersub FASSNACHT. Good game, best of luck in the rest
  13. Well Sunday looking like it's going to be less interesting on here, at least.
