Also apart from the lad from Bury the targets could have been drawn up by anyone watching the championship so our improved scouting network need to find some cheap gems who want to fight for their careers

Agree Peter, I didn't get the sideways move of flipping Gollini for Johnston when going for the best experienced keeper we could get our hands on made more sense. Infact, I would have invested heavily in a new GK.

Bruce must just not fancy Tshibola and the player was probably demanding game time, I would be too sitting watching our MF recently.

I'll tell you something else as well - I know we have to be there but I fucking hate the Premiership and the media circus with a passion - absolutely fucking despise what it's done to football. Another season in the championship putting together a team that can hold its own in the Premiership? You bet, no problem for me, time invested to secure a long term fix is worth it. Bring on Forest, we'll do 'em.
Oh, and other clubs hate us, other fans hate us - so fucking what boo hoo! I'm not planning to invite them over for afternoon tea anytime soon. Good that they hate us, they'll hate us even more when we start Fucking.Them.Up in times to come, oh how they'll hate us.

Couldn't agree more about the Premier League, no soul left in our "top" league. I think the FA should introduce an option for championship clubs to remain in the championship if they gain a promotion place, maybe agree with a club in the bottom 3 of the Premier to stay. I'd prefer to stay in the championship, you can keep your sky money league and shove it.

Good post,@De Kuip. I'm not so certain that we will go up this year. I thinks its more likely that the base has been built for the turn around but its too late now. I don't get the doom and gloom comments about Bruce etc. We know that over the past few months he must have been working on transfers whilst also sorting out his views of the current squad. Yes he has SR and CC for support, but its his head on the block so he has to take a firm interest too.

Some of the new signings look good to me, Hogan may be a risk but where do you get a proven goalscorer for pennies? They are all risks and in this case its offset by some canny deals for other players. I see that Westwood had a dig about joining a proper club yesterday. This must reflect the turmoil of recent times and the sooner everyone settles back down the better. We have had far to many changes. Brentford looked good last night partly because they are a settled side, not to mention they had something to prove and yes we gave them 3 points and £15m in one day!

Roll on better days, I agree they shouldn't be far away now. Thanks to Dr T.
