This one seems more a player trying to put himself in the shop window, rather than us interested.

Seems Birmingham wanting to get rid of Stockdale is more about his wages than his ability -

Asked why the keeper was surplus to requirements, Monk said: “I take everything into account. My main focus on football but of course there are things like finance. You have to take everything into account as a manager.”

Boro probably need to get the wage bill down to make moves of their own. Not surprised they rather a sale for nothing than a loan with them paying some or all of the salary

Stockdale is ok I guess, poor mans Rob Green from a year ago. Would rather we stuck with the fast improving BPF
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

A defender we were linked with a few months ago is on trial with us now. Don't know whether he would be for the first team or U23s.

I'd assume that's U23 again. Singapore international means nothing tbf, and playing in the Singapore league would probably equate to playing division 6/7 here. Massive step up to the championship.

Linked to Brentford winger Florian Jozefzoon.


If we are looking at Brentford for wingers and the scouts dont say "Yeah Jozefzoon looks ok but we should go for Canos" then we need new scouts.

Also just a thought but we need a Cb with Championship experience used to playing out from the back and in a 3 man defence.

Jack O'Connell at Sheffield United?

Tyler Denton set to join Peterborough on loan.

Interestingly Pboro Chairman said that Marcus Maddison had his release clause activated by a championship club yesterday i think.

2+2=5 maybe.

Friend who’s a big brum fan who’s pretty clued yo said that the stockdale thing is due not to his wages but to the amount of loyalty bonuses and staggered payments they made to get him to sign (wage not overly huge as reported) and if he’s loaned out then they still have to keep paying whereas a transfer means they’re null.

Two months since last season ended & not a single penny spent on improving the squad

I do love Leeds United transfer windows :roll:

Cant keep enquiring for much longer.

Bit of a sad state seeing as we been talking to Hernandez since May and Vydra for about a month and we get neither.

Such a long time wasted.

11M for Vydra would have put us deep in the s**t if he turned out to be a flop

True but the two guys we linked to today, Kodjia and Assombalonga will be that if not more.

Any signing is a risk.

Do we bite the bullet or keep trying to find hidden gems?

Keep the faith bit longer mate :)

Bielsa gives hope, i cant see him at 62 coming to a different country to a 2nd division club and settling for rubbish.

Pictures of Klich with the 1st training group and Jack Clarke there to, there are little things to hang on to.

If he walks then we panic.

I doubt MB does anything quickly and I absolutely think he has a say.
