  1. Fair play, cheers everyone who replied,  nice to see some positive responses for a change....sorry about the maths yeah its £880k....obviously.
  2. I know people are always posting stuff saying ''my uncles brothers mate knows the chairman....bla bla bla'', but I have a very close mate from university who currently works at Shrewsbury Town and is friends with some of the board members. For the sake of his job there I''m not gonna explain his position at the Shrews anymore than that. I belive we were told the undisclosed figure was around £400,000 for Holt. But my friend ensures me it was infact £680,000 plus a signing on fee of £200,000. I think thats a staggering amount, £860,000 total for him when we keep hearing how we have no money. I like the player, think he will score and does alot of physical work, but 16 of his goals last year were penalties (in all comps) and 860k is alot...Just wondred what everyone thinks of this   
  3. Spoke to a Luton season ticket holder the other week. He said Martin was very hit and miss for them. Fair play he was their top scorer with 14 goals, but in League 2 he scored 10goals in 40-odd games, one in 4 at L2 level aint great. A sub at best for me. Give Cody his chance.... PS he did say Spillane was very solid and would do a job at L1 level
  4. This is bad, very bad if Byfield is the level of player were going for. Worrying
  5. [quote user="TheMarshmallowMonkey"] We must be the only club in the world who thinks we can progress by going backwards. If this was any other injury prone, 33 year old left winger in the states, we''d hear nothing but criticism and and allegations of a lack of ambition. Huckerby is a legend but all that is past. Let''s move on.   [/quote]   Cannot believe people dont think hed do a job for us. he left a couple of seasons too early. Ye hes 33 not 40...hes still got a couple of years at lower league left easily, if darren anderton can do it at 36 Hucks can do it at 33. Hes still nippy, has much more technical ability than most players in this league and if he came back it would give the place a lift cause the fans love him so much and he loves the club. Maybe do a Giggs and start playing more centrally in midfield when his pace really starts to go. Defo worth a shot in my eyes....
  6. Can anyone think of any Norwich players who went to a World Cup/Euros while actually at Norwich??? I Can think of two initially Fleck- 1990 World Cup Scotland Woods- 1986 World Cup England Townsend- 1990 World Cup Ireland, although not sure bout this one  
  7. I think your right we should be alot more ruthless. The level of players im not sure really...i honestly think most L2 and L1 players would see coming here as a great oppounity, just for the faciltiies and size of the club etc. So i think if we go for young talented prospects from the lower two leagues we can get fairly cheap and maybe throw in the odd free transfer with experience from the Championship, wed have the right mix. Examples- Andy Bishop from Bury, Sodje/Hahnemann/Murty from Reading  
  8. iv spoken to a couple of Luton season ticket holders and they both rated spillane, said he was solid, athltetic and looked a good prospect. think he can play RB CB or CM so versatile aswell. They also said even though martin was their top scoerer he was fairly unreliable, so not sure bout him.
  9. Iv spoken to some Luton fans who go to alot of games, they said Martin, even though he was their top scorer is fairly unreliable at L2 level so if he is included he will be just a squad player. However they were very appreciative to have had pillane on loan. They said he was solid and looked a good prospect, can play rb, centre half or centre mid so useful versatility. He might be with the Ireland u-21s this summer so be interesting to see how he gets on their. Rudd is a talent from what iv heard, one of the reasons Lewis was sold was cause Rudd was coming through, maybe to early to hold a first team place in such an important position. I thought wed released Renton
  10. just read the article i was getting that info from, ye it was wrong, sorry bout that... Parkin is s**t not good so we dnt want him ...fair play
  11. I know there has been loads of these types of posts but just thought id mention if you havnt heard.... Sam Parkin got released by Luton today, he scored 25 goals last year in league 2. Would be a good back-up or potential option if we cant get Lee, plus wages wont be massive and he must live fairly locally. Sam Sodje...released by Reading, strong fast centre back, could do a job in league 1 Free transfers are probably gonna be the basis of our activity in the transfer window so thought id just mention these guys and see what every1 thinks
  12. [quote user="ACE"]Ohsopoor has pace but its not consistent.  He is lazy and is not going to suddenly start bombing up and down the riht wing.  And playing a player out of position in a new team in a new league?  Thank god you are not the manager. I remember when we got him Crewe fans said he was fast but positionally dubious and with a poor atitude.  Strange our scouts missed all that eh? [/quote] A standard positive response from ace
  13. [quote user="hogesar"][quote user="Say Hello To The Angels"]it''s a shame they went up i was rooting for sheff utd, burnley like wigan, hull and stoke have no right to be in the premiership. [/quote] I don''t understand that. They clearly do have a right to be in the Premiership...because they got promoted. That''s how football works... The only teams that have no right to be in the Premiership next year are those that did not get promoted. Past history counts for nothing, and i think it''s stupid to claim that teams like Burnley, hull or wigan don''t deserve to be in the Premiership. [/quote] Completley agree, no one has ''the right'' to be in the prem, its pruley based on the football. Hull, wigan, burnley etc... are there because they have played well and been run correctly. Teams like Newcastle belive they deserve to be in europe because of their history and their size, thats absolute b****x. They have been run badly and played poorly, so their in the Championship next year...end of. Burnley will do ok i reckon, traditionally the playoff winners do better than automatically promoted teams. I hope they do well, gives teams like us hope that it can be done ona small budget.  
  14. [quote user="Mr. Bump"]Exeter away [/quote]   exeter away, totally agree, proper old school stand no cover, hopefully itl be -10, raining and windy. Proper football support that is...
