I don't think we should have CYL. To me, he never really regained any form after his leg op, was always afraid of a tackle, and as soon as he had the opportunity, buggered off for pastures new.
We're not a charity, and buying a player that has no current form is a bad move.

Did your wife hit you over the head again?

He was superb under Lennon playing central midfield, easily our best player. And despite not getting much game time at Palace he was regularly used as a sub, despite Palace having some very good wingers.

He would be a great signing.

I just can't see it happening, he would be a great signing but wages may be an issue i reckon.

Sorry Nat, I agree he did well, butthere is nothing to compare him to now, so I reckon he's too big a gamble. There again, if he realises he's at the last chance saloon, he may well give it a go but its a very hard mind-set for him to get back into.

Tweet from Keith Downie, Sky reporter for the North East of England -

Sunderland and Bolton have both made enquiries for Peterborough captain Jack Baldwin. The defender is valued at £250,000.

Do we actually have 250K to spend on a transfer fee? I thought Phil had been told money was only available for wages and signings would have to be free or loans? I know it's not a lot of money in football terms but it equates to 5K a week which might be enough for a decent player at this level. I don't know much about Jack Baldwin (ie nothing really). Is he any good?

Didn't we offer Ipswich 500K for McGoldrick in January?

We offered cash for a Charlton player as well. The doom mongers need to shut up and let Ken get on with the job.

I fancy the play-offs.

I'd say to you both to get a room, but that would send Norpig into meltdown.

Iles has since rubbished the idea that we ever were interested in Baldwin - a non story apparently.

In some ways its a shame we did not get CYL on loan to see what he is like now.

It still feels like a big risk unless he is on low wages (which i doubt)

Nat I wasn't 'doomsaying' when I asked about the money for a fee. It was my understanding (and still is) that the BN and others had reported we were not going to spend money on transfer fees this summer. We were instead going to allocate all the funds available for squad strengthening to wages which meant looking at free transfers or loans.

I hope that doesnt apply to the big striker we need as we could end up with a poor option on loan.

Sadly strikers are the most expensive and also in our team the most important signing of the season for me.

I agree we need a good one desperately and if we do have money to make a purchase that's where it should be spent. However there is still some time to go (albeit less than last year since the window will close before the season starts rather than at the end of August) so I'm not panicking yet by any means. In some ways I actually prefer the relative quiet from the club after several seasons of us being fed a bunch of codswallop about being 'in' for someone only to be told in the end 'we couldn't get there' when the club knew all along it was a non starter either due to a huge wage or big fee that were beyond anything we could hope to match. At least this year we can be fairly certain Ken isn't going to tell the press "I have a fax in my pocket".

Still, if either Leonel or Christiano are bored with playing for world famous clubs on mega-wages then maybe Ken should warm up the fax machine, maybe even break out the telex while he's at it. Wink

They should put a bit aside for a decent screen. That piece of shit in the corner is a waste of time.

So a fair bit of business this week, Donaldson signing for us and Sammy extending his contract. Not to mention some u23 recruitment.

Stlll lots needed, we need another left back and at least one more centre back, more midfield cover and of course strikers.
