I see the QSI takeover has reared it's head again. Apparently a ยฃ120M takeover is in the offing sooner rather than later, (from a source) .
Don't know if it Heinz or HP?


1.) 31 Mar 2020 16:58:26
hopefully Heinz.

2.) 01 Apr 2020 09:00:39
Daddies for me. (Or is that a different subject!? ) ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

Bring out the branston.

4.) 01 Apr 2020 15:13:57
cant see anywhere near ยฃ120M though unless that is if we are promoted. ยฃ80M maybe.



06 Nov 2019 08:27:01
The QSI takeover link seems to be popping it's head up again. The thing is whenever it happens no-one seems to deny it.




08 Jul 2019 21:59:01
Pontus gone then!
Maybe we'll never know the real reason, but just been reading that Monk dropped him for the good of the team. I'd forgotten about that.
Hopefully we have someone better lined up. New kit out tomorrow, so you never know? ๐Ÿ™.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 06:10:00
Heโ€™s one man and no man is bigger than lufc.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 07:37:22
Pontus has come out and said it's to balance the books for ffp, as to it this is true or not, who knows. Not like he is going to admit that it's down to his attitude and why we not held out for a better price of we need the money. How can a team like Brentford pay him upwards of ยฃ30k baffles me.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 15:23:33
Is Pontus spinning it?

He is not lying about the "FFP need" if Leeds need his transfer fee in order to pay for the new centre back they had identified prior to his sale.

It feels like Jansson's behaviour at the tail end of the season may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. The powers that be may have already looked and identified a more team orientated centre back

Looking at the management's track record they tend to sell before they buy (Viera before Bamford; Clarke before Costa) .

So I put to you, the jury, Pontus had to leave as soon as possible even if we lost a couple of million over a projected fee. We need his money in order to secure his successor. Otherwise someone else may get in before us.

As a business model I can understand it works well for businesses with limited capital, making best use of the cash flow model.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 20:27:55
Good post Axe.



18 Jun 2019 13:58:43
More talk on Clarke to Tottenham today. Looks like it could be happening. TBH I'd be happy with ยฃ20m for him. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to go, but I don't see him being a player that is vital to getting us promoted.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 14:44:07
I tend to agree unless he features more than he did last season. He made an impact before Christmas when he was coming on but then after his mysterious illness (some kind of disagreement with the club perhaps after the Jan window? ) early Feb he barely played. Do we really have 3/ 4 years to develop him or do we need players who can make a difference right now?

2.) 18 Jun 2019 17:12:31
20MIL? Two 10mill wingers in his place. Go for it.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 18:34:55
ยฃ10m needed every year just to balance the books

ยฃ5 in reserve for fees, wages, taxes

ยฃ5m to spend on players.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 18:57:38
Sorry but I don't wanna see Clarke go. Seen too many of our youngsters go in the past and now we have a manager that believes in youth. Bad move for me! Saying that we might loan him back maybe?

5.) 18 Jun 2019 20:37:55
ยฃ20m for a young player with flashes of talent but not proven consistently is good business. Indeed, in games when he came back late in the season looked ineffective at times.

If it happens tho, Radz needs to notably adapt his 'loans and free agents only' mantra. That won't fly following (if this goes through) the club's second biggest transfer fee after Rio. Don't expect or want to break the bank, however especially don't want to see 1 yr loans bust this hopeful investment on a 1 yr promotion folly if we don't make it.

CB possibly Ben White (buy now not loan) Costa (buy) a second winger maybe Harrison given how much Bielsa seems to rate him (buy) and a central attacking playmaker with a killer pass to replace what we lost from Saiz leaving.

Sell, loan or in must desperate mutually terminate those doing nothing for the club (Ideguichi - looks nearly done - Saiz, Sacko, Cibicki, O'Kane, Anita, De Bock) . Jury out on if Casilla is leaving or not.

Use that to give new contracts to those deserving of them Roofe springs to mind (and purchase a new keeper if we do indeed sell Casilla) = fair.

6.) 18 Jun 2019 22:17:18
Mysterious illness? Stop talking nonsense.

7.) 19 Jun 2019 08:55:25
What was it then Cork?

8.) 19 Jun 2019 09:24:02
Ealing, spot on.

9.) 19 Jun 2019 22:00:17
Sorry I thought you were saying he was pretending to be ill! My mistake and I apologize.



23 Apr 2019 08:05:23
IMO there are 3 people to blame for us not being in the top 2 at this stage. (Samu Saiz) , (whoever allowed him to leave) and (whoever cocked up the Daniel James transfer) .
I believe a fit, on form, committed Saiz would have gained us the few extra points needed. Someone should have told him to man up, remind his wife/ girlfriend he was a professional footballer when she met him and this is how it is.
Failing this I believe the signing of James would have gained us the extra points and impetus needed. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ .


1.) 23 Apr 2019 09:56:45
Not sure on the Samu comment Dan but totally with you on the James situation.

2.) 23 Apr 2019 10:33:52
How often was Saiz fit and on form though? we should have binned him when he spat at the Newport lad. As for James, seems to me that it was Swansea's fault, I don't claim to know the ins and outs of it but if the lad was at ER and ready to sign but Swansea changed their mind what can you do?

3.) 23 Apr 2019 10:51:57
Saiz didnโ€™t fit! He was lucky to be around after the spitting incident and never repaid us for sticking by him. Look at what has happened to him at Getafe, hardly taken the opportunity he had so desperately wanted has he! On his day, talented player but too few days and I suspect always on his terms. When you compare Hernadez, the man with Saiz, you see the difference!

James ultimately didnโ€™t come because the Swansea Chairman ignored his owners instructions and then resigned before he was sacked. Not sure what we could have done to revive it as he wasnโ€™t taking calls and would probably still have ignored instructions! I think on deadline day everybody closely involved bar the Swansea chairman thought it was all sorted!

4.) 23 Apr 2019 12:45:35
Danum Agree totally but the person solely responsible for both failures is Radz. Regarding Saiz, very difficult to resolve, a bit like Brexit but I would've only permitted him to go at the end of the season. As for James, Radz knew all along the proposed transfer was dubious because of the Chairman at the time. Had Radz offered the money up front, the Chairman would've relented. I think you'll find what actually cost us this season ultimately is Radz's money problems (this caused the poor structure of the failed James acquisition) from his tv rights debacle. Radz naive. If we don't get promoted via the playoffs, wouldn't surprise me to see Radz' true colours. Him selling up and Bub leaving. We've paid the consequences this season for Radz' mistakes when it all should've been so different.

5.) 23 Apr 2019 12:55:32
Spaniard Saiz did fit albeit only just. What he did at Newport wrong but he became a highly effective ball carrier which aided our overall play. He did need resting more frequently, as did other players but letting him leave was dumb and has cost us an automatic promotion and a diminution in his transfer value. As for James, you are right but miss the point. Radz knew this dynamic but failed to react and take decisive action. His tv rights debacle meant he couldn't restructure the deal to Jenkins liking so Jenkins put his foot down. If we fail in the playoffs (likely) I won't be surprised to see Radz sell.

6.) 23 Apr 2019 13:27:07
Guess we will never know. Not sure I follow your logic with James, Radz and everyone else thought the deal was done, why need to renegotiate anything. By the time it became apparent, too late. In my opinion Saiz is only good if he wants to play and even then when he has been given the opportunity he wanted in Spain, he hasnโ€™t delivered. But itโ€™s all in the past, we could have had both of them and still ended up where we are, who knows.

I think you might be more right about Bielsa going on then Radz in the short term, depends who is willing to buy and not buy. Not sure Bielsa will have the energy to go again or the players to go with him unless he can show how he has learned and that he really has the resources he wants.

Letโ€™s hope it doesnโ€™t come to that. How was your Easter you were very quiet on here!

7.) 23 Apr 2019 13:53:08
Spanish Not good! Very depressed about losing to Wigan. There's other personal carp I'm going through right now. An Easter to forget!

8.) 23 Apr 2019 13:58:52
Spanish Radz and American counterparts at Swans thought, no hoped deal was done. They knew all along about Jenkins. Jenkins was the one who told McBurnie he's going nowhere. There was however a chink of light with Jenkins. He was passionate about protecting financial interests of Swans so informed everyone he'll only sanction deal if virtually all money paid up front. You know the outcome.

9.) 23 Apr 2019 14:32:59
Thatโ€™s interesting stuff George. Hopefully Radz will learn from it! Sorry to hear your news. The personal stuff can help keep the football in perspective but the football can also provide some much needed relief at time. When both are bad, itโ€™s not good! Feeling for you!

10.) 23 Apr 2019 17:01:17
Spaniard Thanks. Please bear in mind Radz economic with the truth. He said afterward "we did everything they asked". Yes, in a way he's right. Problem is he didn't do everything that EVERYONE asked, ie Jenkins.

11.) 23 Apr 2019 19:17:06
James was supposed to be Bielsa's number 1 target, so why did we not try to get the deal done early in the Window? Radz and his sidekick Kinnear have always been economical with the truth. Remember last close season when Kinnear was on a Season Ticket Sales Drive and he was telling us how many millions we had to spend as well as the 10 million from the 49rs. What happened to all that?

12.) 23 Apr 2019 22:34:39
Swansea were always trying to hold on to their key players and only sell as much as they needed. I suspect that James was the last one that they wanted to go and from memory he wasnโ€™t the only deal that fell through on the final day once they had what they needed. In the end it worked out for them, they have benefited from his play and they should get a much better fee for him, so you can see why they did it.

13.) 23 Apr 2019 22:57:04
Spanish The "they" you refer to was Jenkins on his own. He left the following day. James' increase in value via goalscoring displays prove he was right. The benefactors, Swansea, are merely lucky as "they" intended quite the reverse, his sale.

Steady on Danum, ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Good game from the new boy. Maybe heโ€™s a bit more relaxed now, with better to come.

2.) 07 Jul 2020 22:09:17
Brentford paid less combined for pinnock, janson, Buenos, Watkins and Benrama

3.) 07 Jul 2020 22:22:47
They made a mistake! It should read 16 pounds. 15 min sub. at best.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 23:10:27
I think the term is fisted!
Richie that truly is shocking, Also his wages must be fairly hefty to coincide with the big transfer fee .

5.) 07 Jul 2020 23:13:13
Why do people seem surprised by this?
We have known he will cost us that for a year.

6.) 08 Jul 2020 08:35:33
I thought/ hoped we only had to buy him if we went up. It's a lot of money if we don't go up, and if we had to sell him tomorrow we'd be lucky to get a third of what we paid for him!
Let's hope he scores the goal that takes us up, to repay some of that fee! ๐Ÿ™.

7.) 08 Jul 2020 10:06:13
he was great at wolves and you don't become a bad payer over night. he has shown glimps of good things. hope it picks up.

8.) 08 Jul 2020 10:10:22
Not surprised at the cost, but surprised that we ever touched him to begin with . Wolves fans were over the moon that they got shot of him.

9.) 08 Jul 2020 12:02:04
Think he is a good player but 15 mill is high price for me.

10.) 08 Jul 2020 13:34:21
Hope Poveda can show Costa how it's done then he can reclaim his Wolves form and give Marcelo a headache next season.

11.) 08 Jul 2020 13:47:10
He only had 1 decent year at Wolves with a great team around him. hoping he will still come good but suspect that this is another signing that we Orta have avoided.



30 Jun 2020 07:26:10
I know most people probably know this, but the last time Liverpool won the top flight we went up as champions! Spooky! ๐Ÿ‘ป ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™.

the omens are looking good.



28 Jun 2020 14:40:28
I thought the great thing about yesterday was the fact we had our worst possession stats of the season and won 3-0. All reports I've read say we deserved to win. It shows we don't have to have 70% possession, and 20 shots just to score one goal and hope the opposition doesn't score.
Sorry Baz, but if we beat Luton it is all over bar the shouting. F#%ยฃ the fat lady! (not literally obviously)
MOT to the premier league and beyond.


1.) 28 Jun 2020 15:03:53
Danum yeah I heard after the Fulham game the fat lady is starting to recover from her bout of tonsillitis ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฃ

. 14 points to be mathematically certain as things stand ๐Ÿ‘.

2.) 28 Jun 2020 20:40:18
Maybe the difference was that Fulham tried to beat us as opposed to just sitting back? Early goal helps as well because the opposition can't just sit back and hope for a counter.

3.) 29 Jun 2020 08:37:07
Totally agree Alfie, Fulham came to win, which in turn helped us in the long run, Fulham were shattered from playing higher up in our quarter, which gave us the stamina to dominate them in 2nd half albeit after the very shrewd changes from bossman.



20 Jun 2020 14:26:19
All over bar the shouting, if we win tomorrow! ๐Ÿ‘.


1.) 20 Jun 2020 14:32:45
It should put us well on the way. Let's hope the team can do it, but a draw won't be a bad result. UTW.

2.) 20 Jun 2020 15:04:06
If we do our stuff no probs. If we don't we'll need to keep an eye on Brentford whose fixtures look decent on paper with only west brom at home next Friday as a real tuffy. At least the nightmare scenario of fulham being a point behind us after winning at Elland rd is gone.

3.) 20 Jun 2020 15:10:25
The under-tall lady hasn't started singing MOT yet, but she's doing her warm up.
Win tomorrow and Saturday and she may as well start.

4.) 20 Jun 2020 20:41:10
She is in my house Canada. Well not singing exactly but humming! She ain't had a shower since lockdown started! Dirty cow! ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

5.) 21 Jun 2020 06:00:14
Look. am just saying a certain classy female came off the slimming pills, started on the pies and while the lads have been busting a gut with the ball, sheโ€™s been running through scales and arpeggios loosening up her larynx.

It donโ€™t mean owt till weโ€™re 3 games to go and 10 points up on third. but the works being put in by Bielsa, the boys and our lovely ample lady with the gift of song.

It's only natural to fear the worst and hope for the best. All I can say if we were offered to swap with Brom, Brentford or Fulham none of us would. If we'd have been offered the position we are in now, at the beginning of the season, we would have grabbed it with both hands.
Promotion and the title are in our own hands with 5 games left, no other club can say the same.

7 points will see us up. I said when we started back 14 points would be enough and I still believe that.
