    Yeah for Fulham. It doesn’t excuse the 40m we’ve wasted in the last 3 windows. On 6 players who can’t get in the team. Not even as if one of the six has been a success.

    When was the last time we had a successful transfer window?

    25 of the 30 goals we've scored this season have been warnock signings, brought in by the same management team that took us from the brink of relegation to league one to promotion to the premier league.. Madine the only really questionable signing for me.. I'm not sure what you were expecting but good value signings that become world beaters are the exception rather than the rule...

    There were loads of poor decisions in that game. And not an overreaction. But the ‘continued overreaction’ IMO is warnock trying to subconsciously influence future decisions and give us more chance of getting a 50:50 decision go our way while trying to create a siege mentality, us against them with the team and fans.

    He’s a clever guy and hats off to him whatever happens now

    Just because Fulham pissed 100m up the wall it doesn’t make our 30-35m any less of a waste.
    Let's not forget £6 million for Madine either.

    Sadly the extent of our ambition and the rhetoric trotted out was nothing more than

    “let’s give it a go with £30+ million and if it doesn’t work out at least we’ll have an improved squad for another assault on the Championship”

    Inspirational it wasn’t

    I wonder, would it be financially beneficial to him to be relegated?

    I read something a long time ago and my memory isn't that great, but the crux of it was that it is better to be relegated than stay up in 15th, 16th, 17th.

    Uh?

    That does seem odd, why?

    Well he's done it to perfection. All he needs to do is tell the team to lose the last 3 matches.

    You've summed it up well, sadly.

    I don't see how this is possible.

    The point is moot. If we sued over the Chelsea result, Brighton would sue over Sol's 90th minute winner.

    Yeah so clever we had 3 pens turned down in the next game

    The brink of relegation

    No I’m not expecting them to become world beaters but I would expect them to be better than we already had and be able to get in the team. How can you call 40m sat on the bench or loaned out for good value I don’t know.

    Warnocks free transfers have been superb by the way but that doesn’t mean his spending shouldn’t be questioned.

    The continued reaction over that Chelsea offside is ott. The way the players were moving, it was far from obvious.

    And completely ignores Chelsea scored another one afterwards

    There were plenty by me screaming for offside.

    Saying that was impossible to see without replays is almost as ott as talks of suing.

    The job of looking a across the line and spotting the offside was 1 mans job. Not the crowds not the players. The linesman. He failed to spot a player a couple of yards offside. Hes had a shocker.

    Hes fecked up. A easy decision to make when its his job.

    When I read it which must have been about five or more years ago, relegated teams had around £80 mil in 'parachute' payments.

    Since then, there seems to be a lot more Championship games shown on SKY which of course brings added revenue.

    Niasse appealed straight away.
