    New signings

    3 out of 4 aint bad Andy. Makes a nice change for us to be actually signing players during January and not waiting until the emergency loan window opens.

    • I'm not sure How I feel about these signings.
      If the services of Ross Barkley can be obtained for the rest of the season then we may have a half decent squad, but only half decent if you know what I mean.
      I think we have been bamboozled again in that we have sold a prize assett to fund the incoming players and as such I remain disgruntled. There is no mention of the deal with Norwich in as much as we don't know how much we made on the sale of Beccs and how much Morrison cost us.
      I think it is still same old - same old!

      • Nil sum, and ‘same old, same old’, indeed, Bryan! Same old Bates’ sheet – no money spent again and only managed to balance the books by shifting players out to pay the wages of those coming in! Allegedly, we didn’t sign Chris Burke because the deal involved a £500k transfer fee…. Still, there’s always the emergency loan window!
        If fans looked at matches in the same way GFH Bates looks at investing in players, we’d balance the cost of tickets against the other costs of attending (travel, food, drinks; to say nothing of entertainment value) and stay away… And, after a while, even the occasional cup game won’t bring us back!
