    Had a read up on him, nothing but good things said. Leeds needs some stability if they want to go anywhere. Derby away next will be a good test!

    He was great at Bilbao but hes had some disasters as well. Stability isnt a strong point.

    Really gutted about this, but expected it in our first season after relegation, so can't complaing too much.

    Traore stings a bit as he's been shite everywhere except us. We finally get him looking like a footballer and then he's off. Meh

    But the worst is Bamford. Literally no idea why he's gone. He's played like an absolute donkey at every club he's ever been at...except Boro. Twice.

    Championship player of the season when he was with us the first time. He goes to CP. Gets 6 games and does fuck all. Goes to Norwich. 7 games and fuck all. Burnley for a year. 7 games and fuck all. Back to boro and a respectable 12 goals. He's clearly meant to be here. So why sell him? And to Leeds?! It makes no sense.

    I look forward to his 0 goals.

    Not sure what's going on with Boro. Must be some money problems to sell our three best players like that, so late in the window. I can imagine Pulis walking. I would.

    No way we're doing anything this season.

    You'll get 3 points tonight unless Blades sort their shit out and learn how to mark.

    Boro cruised it in the end, 3-0 after 25 minutes and Flint who was prolific at Bristol city got on the scoresheet. Boro top of the league tonight.

    I'm sure you'll manage that!

    The last time over there we only got the top tier, still made more of a racket than them.
    Handy! I need to do a few aways to bump mine up too.

    Yeah. I actually think we'll beat QPR.
    Could really do with a striker though

    Thought that might cheer you up :) I hope the fa properly clamp down on this malarky, the fines are fuck all compared to whats spent and hardly prohibitive.

    Yeah, Chairman is whacking up prices and generally making an arse of himself with the fans, we've known we were 'unofficially' embargoed for a while (no new signings at all this summer), finally been confirmed.

    Poor transfer market dealings, some 'questionable' sponsorship deals (we are now kit sponsored by an energy drink made by our owner's company) and impatience seems to be the main issue.

    Not convinced by our newish manager either, we weren't awful in the first game but another season like last year and we'll be in real trouble (again).

    EDIT - Also we've fallen out with BBC Sheffield over commentary rights / payments, so now fans can't even listen to us, fucking stupid decision.

    Do you know how much the deal is worth? I know Man city and a few other clubs do this to get around ffp.

    That would be my suspicion as well, the brand is called ELEV8, not a great deal of information online and nothing about the worth of the deal, smells fishy (which ironically, is how our Thai owner acquired his fortune, through an inherited Tuna business).

    If we're listing your summer of fun shouldn't we talk about the racist and the punch up?
