Very easy to judge in hindsight, never as easy when actually signing a player. Anita was fairly much like Barry Douglas, he had been a regular for a team that had got promoted. Anita also offered versatility being able to play both full back positions and defensive midfield. Throw in the fact that he had been capped 3 times for Holland and it seemed a great signing and a bit of a coup for us to get him. How much would he have cost if he hadn't have been a free agent?

Just thinking about this.

So we have the loan done, fair enough.

How are we planning on paying the rumoured £12mil transfer fee or £30-40k a week contract?

Radz isnt the sort of owner to gamble, so he surely isnt gambling on us being promoted?

Could sell players if we arent but for example if we have a dreadful season maybe our key players won't be as valuable.

Interesting.

I meant next season.

We have to find £12mil and probably a wage rise to hence the £30-40k estimate i put on.

Where is that coming from? The £12mil especially.

Not a dig at Radz or anything I'm just genuinely curious how we will suddenly have £12mil spare.

I tongue in cheek said "our friends from the East" . . But if not that then how?

Not complaining just wondering, hoped for an option to buy but an obligation was a shock.

Why would we give him a neat or 100% pay rise just for going up, Wolves didn't.
They obviously know something the vast majority are guessing.

Why would he agree to come here on a permanent deal in 12months without some sort of incentive?


He hasnt agreed to come to a potentially 2nd division club in 12months without something to sweeten the deal.

Game time?, they're not all in just for the money.

Costa should give us the pace & quality down the flanks we lacked last season,

Mr Bloom reckons he is the championship signing of the summer so far

Costa has looked bright in all his games imo.

Pacey and direct, everything we lacked last season.

Maybe not quite up to BielsaBall yet but individually he has impressed.

Teams are scared of him (hence him getting hacked down often already ).

2 really good assists last night, great corner and clever run and cross.

No coincidence we looked far more of a threat when he went right and Clarke left.

Hope MB stops trying to play Costa on the left, he isnt a left winger, he made his name on the right so play him in his best position please.
