    It’s all a bit hazy what will happen. If the deal is agreed, their is a transitional period until the end of 2020 and EU players will be able to still enjoy freedom of movement to the UK and thus won’t need a work permit. If it is no-deal then it will be up to the FA and the Home Office what happens. The default position will be that all players that don’t hold an British or Irish passport will require a work permit. Currently the Home Office will give a work permit to any professional player, who earns over £42,000 a year if they obtain a Governing Body Endorsement (GBE), from the the FA. The FA current run a points based system to determine whether a player qualifies for the GBE. Points are awarded based on a set of criteria that takes international apperances, wages and transfer fee into account. If the FA don’t change their criteria then the amount of overseas players coming into the UK will dry up dramatically, the BBC did a study that found that over 300 players in the Premier League, Championship and SPL who signed on EU passports would not get a work permit. How the FA react to a no-deal scenario will be interesting, they have been trying to crack down on overseas players and may see this as a good way to do so, although the Premier League will be furiously trying to get them to be more lenient. The Government have said that EU citizens that are currently in the UK will have their rights protected, so that means players currently playing here won’t need to get a work permit to stay. The summee transfer window could be insane, the shorter period that was brought in last year combined with clubs being unable to bring in the majority of European players will drive up the price of all UK players. People like Max Aarons could suddenly become worth £30m and command huge wages. It could be a very tough situation for Norwich as they will likely lose the ability to recruit smartly from Europe, which they have done excellently recently.

    I do not think speculating on a current player's position next season when this season still hangs in the balance is all that useful. Bottom line is that Krul is one of the best keepers in this league. Yes mistakes have been made but just see poor remi above. Rudd had a shocker for preston vs birmingham. Henderson, the lad we've been "linked to" has cost the blades at least 4 points from my memory so no more worse than Krul. Let's just support him. He's our indisputable number 1. There is an entire preseason let alone the 8 games left for Krul to work on his distribution and footwork. Get behind him. Not on top of him.

    They'll get temp entertainment visas or something whatever happens. Too much tax to take from footballers and the leagues to stop it.

    There are better and cheaper keepers out there than Angus Gunn. Webber’s team will find them.

    If they don't start to get some results in their next three games then they're going to be right in the thick of it. They need to get stuck in to Leeds and Sheff Utd, and they shouldn't need any extra motivation for a local derby.

    I don't see how Rhodes can be expected to score if he's not on the pitch! When was the last time he appeared?

    Yes but Bournemouth are media darlings . Rising through the ranks of English Football , from their sunny South Coast home. A better example of plucky hardworking derring-do you would be hard pushed to find. Lead by Eddie Howe , with his boyish good looks and his ready wit, it is nought but a modern fairy tale. And absolutely nothing to do with a fabulously wealthy Russian. No sireee.

    £50 a win is not a bad average at all! I’m sure we can bring in a lot more before the season ends. Well done Nutty, a just reward for all the great things you do for the Pups!
