Reports that we're interested in Miguel Velosa now, apparently the fax of Rivaldos contract is no longer valid

Can you please expand on this? What's it got to do with Rivaldo?

Sorry being sarcastic, Velosa and Lita used to get trotted out every window, along with the likes of Rob Earnshaw. Rivaldo was mentioned because of the infamous I've got a signed contract fax in my jacket pocket at about the same time that promises that JJ was not up for sale.

OK- thanks. I'm a very simple person born without much intelligence and I haven't improved as I've got older. I thought that there was some specific meaning in your message. Sarcasm is usually beyond me.

An educated guess by me -

Kyel Reid - winger




Parkinson's first signing at Bradford (August 2011)

Moved on to Preston but didn't do much but went back to Parkinson on loan before Christmas last year for the rest of the season

96 league games and 10 goals in his first spell with Parkinson then 17 league games and 1 goal last season with him.

Released now by Preston - therefore free agent.


Seems a reasonable shout to me anyway.

Heard about Parkinsons connections to this lad myself (not sure where) basically stating what you have there Sluffy. Goals ratio isn't too bad for a winger but I'm more interested to know what his assist stats are. If he is a great winger that creates loads of chances I can't imagine he would be being released.

It was in a recent newspaper article.

Hard to say whether Reid would be a good signing or not at this level, but I what's left of the squad seems to lack natural width so maybe that's the thinking?

We don't have a natural winger in the squad other than Walker, and from the reports on PP that I've read he is very much a 4-4-2 man so that is certainly an area he will need to strengthen.
At a push Woolery and Clayton could play as wide men but realistically that would be more as part of a front 3 rather than out and out wingers.

Maybe my brains are minced after all the comings and goings but I seem to have it in my head that Woolery's contract won't be renewed. Sure I read that somewhere at the end of the season.....

Oxford United have supposedly made a six figure bid for Gary Madine. Surely we aren't that lucky?

$1000.00   six figures... one bad striker (in so many ways)... and we would be lucky to get that.  Do they want Mavies as well?  Seven figures for that one!!!

I think it would be highly immoral and unfair to rip off Oxford like that.

Nixon saying that we are finally looking active on the transfer front with 3 free transfers (incomings) looking likely. And maybe even a sale

I think the sale he's intimating is Holding, he's the only one who'll offer positive finances

I read some gossip that goalkeeper Matt Gilks has been training with us, after his release from Burnley, as a free agent.

I don't usually pass on such gossip but in this case it did sound feasible given that Amos would no doubt be one players wage we would like to lose and also even if we did keep him we had no experience reserve keeper.

Also he's not played hardly at all in the last two years so would think his wage demands would be reasonably affordable if we did have a few quid to spare.

BN going with Mark Beevers rumour so there's no chance of that happening then.

Tweet from Iles -

#bwfc target Matt Gilks talking with Rangers today. That might put the kybosh on his move to the Macron...

Iles is making it damned near impossible to defend him with this garbage. Not that Gilks in talks with Rangers but that he was a "target" in the first place. No one can come here at all until the embargo is lifted and given that we still don't know when or frankly even IF it will be lifted this summer then we can't have any "targets" that are at all realistic.

I appreciate he's passing on what he's heard from either in the club or maybe an agent but surely by now he should know that there's no way we can make any kind of approach to any player yet. I really wish he'd help himself by being a bit less credulous and start actually digging into what the club is actually doing instead of publishing all this speculative stuff with "The BN understands..." or "Sources within the club tell me ..." because that's just covering his ass and not doing his job which should be to ask questions of the club and state openly what responses he gets from the chairman for a start. He also desperately needs to stop citing the steering group as if they were on the board or had some actual power with the club.

Anyway, enough ranting. I just want the damned embargo dealt with and for Phil to have at least some chance of actually strengthening our squad. It doesn't matter what it should do on paper, the reality is that it's a mess and without some fairly urgent rearrangement it doesn't have a chance of being competitive, not even in League One.

If you think we are waiting for the embargo to be lifted before talking to players you are being naive, and to be honest if we were waiting for it to be lifted before talking to anyone I would be concerned.
KA appears to be confident that the embargo will be lifted so we have to assume he is in a better position to judge that than anyone else.
The fact that Gilks is talking to Rangers to me strengthens the report that we have had talks with him rather than rubbishes them because he is clearly looking around for a club and if he has roots in the area why wouldn't he talk to us.
Anderson has obviously shown PP enough to convince him the embargo's going to be sorted so there's no reason he can't convince players with the same proviso.

Gilks is a free agent and was on trial with us.

I mentioned the Gilks 'gossip' 5 days ago - and that included training with us - so it is not unreasonable to think 'contact' with potential targets and / or their agents is taking place in advance of the probable lifting of the embargo sometime this summer.

Fwiw the gossip also incudes Beevers the former Millwall centre back and Proctor the former Bradford striker.
