I believe the deal's done Roma

To be honest, the lad might become an excellent midfielder but I haven't been entirely convinced when watching him that he's anything approaching the real deal, and CW has had him at Northampton and claimed he wasn't yet ready for 1st team football in L1, let alone the PL.

On that basis, £1m upfront would be a huge help towards the overall transfer budget and the add-ons will be significant. I know we want to develop players from the academy but I'm really not too upset by the sale, for £1m+++ of an unproven player who's had 11 games for us.

I hope he does really well and proves me totally wrong as he seems a top lad.

And that was pretty much my response on What's App today as well.......

Believe we've also signed a CB today - James Wilson (was at Oldham but turned down a new contract) - signed on a free - 2.5 year deal

Jack O'Connell from Brentford is at BDTBL for a medical and will sign for a "substantial fee".

Also rumour John Fleck (Coventry) will sign by the end of the day...

According to both wiki pages they play for Sheffield United. Might be a bit premature.

Jack William O'Connell (born 29 March 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Sheffield United.

John Alexander Fleck (born 24 August 1991) is a Scottish association footballer who plays as a midfielder for Sheffield United F.C

Another snippet from Fleck's wiki page.

On 31 January 2009, Fleck was involved in a late-night brawl in a nightclub in Glasgow's City centre even though Fleck was just 17 years old at the time.[38] On 2 August 2009 it was revealed that Fleck had been dropped from the Rangers first-team after a training ground bust-up involving a bucket of chicken, with the then assistant manager Ally McCoist

O'Connell confirmed done

As for Fleck, are we using the same fax machine we tried to sign him with last time?

Looks like the repair man has sorted the fax - according to BBC they have both signed on 3 year deals. Pretty happy with the incomings so far.........no doubt my strawberries will be pissed on when we sell Che for a gobstopper and a curly wurley to warm a prem bench for a season before being signed for Mansfield Town next season.... :whi

have we signed Jake Wright, the CB from Oxford?


also - in the side today was a Reading/Ireland U-21 player I think his name was O'Shaughnessy (or Paddy feckin Murphy or summat) - must have played his part in a 5-0 thrashing of the mighty Stocksbridge Park Steels. Dane will be gutted! He's a big SPS Fan.....the Blades are his second team  :ok:

Naughty!!!

I don't post much but I do read tha-knows.

I didn't go today because of Sea Cadets etc but overall I'm happy with what I've read and also seen coming through the door at BDTBL.

DCL hasn't been confirmed as gone yet but he did have a medical at Everton last week.
From what I can gather, the Prem teams in the JPT are assembling young squads to compete in that cup..... this might be the reason for the delay as I know he was relishing the thought of playing in the First Team in his preferred and Natural role he grew up in (D/CM). Having talked to him at Sports Day the other week at school, he was delighted Tufty got the job and was looking forward to pre-season. That was the day before they were all due to report back though.

I'm really looking forward to the new season now too. I don't think we need much more signings. more gelling and fitness for me. Although I won't complain if Clarke and Killa do sign this week  ;)

I do feel that Adams will be gone by TDD though but I think w are equipped this time.

anyway, off to a wedding in Oughtibridge... laters fellas

CW says no bid received for Che and a bid from a PL team for DCL has been rebuffed.

The EFL cup is in turmoil as most of the big PL teams have declined to take part so they're now offering places to academy teams in the Championship (I think someone else mentioned this elsewhere on these boards)... Typical football league and FA cock up...

Agreed Landlord - some good, solid signings so far.  All look to be squad players and no prima-donna wage stealers by the looks of it.

I think that 3 of the new signings are all ex club captains so we should have strong leadership throughout the squad this season  :ok:

I think CW has done well so far in his transfer dealing.

However, the proof will be when the season starts. I think quite a few of us were quietly confident at the start of last season. :^^

Confident with good reason too Bolts......more than matched Hull and Newcastle in pre season and Adkins's previous record.

The rest is history..........
