    Fans would probably protest if they brought artificial pitches in over here which think they tried last year but it got knocked back, I don't think I'd be too happy but I'd much prefer that than Premier League B teams plaguing the FL.

    I sincerely hope that our new sigings are top quality because we've lost another good player. :(

    Kari Arnason now gone to Malmo:

    I hope we got a decent fee for him. We don't have a single foreign player in the squad now... god help us. :p

    Players out:
    Craig Morgan to Wigan
    Ben Pringle to Fulham
    Kari Arnason to Malmo

    Players in:
    Aidy White released by Leeds
    Joe Mattock released by Wednesday
    Lewis Buxton released by Wednesday

    Found a potential new striker for when Matt Derbyshire goes to Grimsby Town on double the money we're paying him, we might have to break our wage structure to sign him though.

    Middling sounds great to me!!

    I'm starting to feel a bit more hopeful now, I'm still a bit concerned about our defence though.. Arnason and Morgan have been like rocks at the centre of our defence over the past few seasons and we've lost them both this summer, along with fullback loanees leaving it's looking like we're going to have a completely new back line.

    Talking of which we've just signed Danny Collins as well:

    Aidy White

    It sounds like the Blades are a bit bitter about us signing Halford, he's one that they were hoping for.

    Updated transfer list:

    Players out:
    Craig Morgan
    Ben Pringle
    Kari Arnason

    Players in:
    Aidy White
    Joe Mattock
    Lewis Buxton
    Emmanuel Ledesma
    Danny Collins
    Tom Thorpe
    Greg Halford

    I'm feeling really hopeful and excited about the season now and there's still a couple of players to be brought in apparently, the only downer is Wigan are now after Derbyshire but maybe that will give Jordan Bowery a chance.

    I've seen a bit of him (whilst on loan in MLS), though not a lot to be honest, but from the sound of things, he may be a player.

    spurs' youth over the last couple of years have gotten a lot of attention, and to be frank, Ward was nowhere on the radar until his loan to the Chicago Fire awhile back, where he was used as a wing forward, to pretty good reviews. he then went to Coventry City where he (by most accounts) played a decisive role* in keeping them in league 1. they used him more centrally, where he apparently excelled, but which will hardly move him quickly up the ranks at Spurs, where there are a glut of very talented youngsters ahead of him.

    literally everything I heard about him at Coventry was good, though, and I know they wanted to keep him. the move up to the championship should be a nice step forward in his career, and though I know little of how things look up there, I'd think it to be a nice bit of business for Mr Evans.


    *along with forum favorite Reda Johnson, of course.

    Sounds promising pookspur, he's already stood out and scored two great goals for us in pre-season albeit against non-league teams.

    Ivan, I think if you did a league table counting the turnover of players throughout all four divisions we'd be easily top under Evans... it seems to be the way he operates but then that's ideally suited to us because we aren't the sort of club who can hold onto our best players for very long.

    I've always liked Paddy Kenny, despite his porcine essence. I know nothing of his game since leaving Leeds, and couldn't say whether or not he'd still be good Championship signing. He's a good Yorkshire lad, though, and a decent keeper, if he's still got it.

    I think we could use his experience if he's fit and still up to scratch, Collin has been great for us but he's a bit green at this level.

    We just lost 3-2 to the mighty Alfreton Town, not to worry just yet as we made a dozen subs and were treating it very much like a warm up game.

    I'm an armchair fan these days pookspur. I used to go a lot when they were back at Millmoor getting relegated season after season (towards the end anyway) it got really depressing lol.

    I've been tempted to start going again for the last few seasons but I'm a bit of a tight arse these days, both Leicester and Mainz are really tempting but I'm scared I'll get back into it and have to start selling my possessions to go more often then.

    Two more loans announced from Derby today, goalkeeper is now sorted apparently and Rawson is coming back:

    Scott Loach has left for Notts County now we have Kelle Roos on loan for the season.

    Players in:
    Aidy White
    Joe Mattock
    Lewis Buxton
    Emmanuel Ledesma
    Danny Collins
    Tom Thorpe
    Greg Halford
    Grant Ward (loan)
    Kelle Roos (loan)
    Farrend Rawson (loan)

    With released players and transfers out half of our squad is brand new from the end of last season, also by my count only 3 players are left from our League One promotion winning team/squad.

    well, then, if it's a money issue, by all means, give the friendlies a pass. but get thessen down to the stadium now and again once the season starts. of course, footy is ridiculously overpriced - even at lower levels than the championship. but it's right in your backyard, man! folks like Ivan and I would kill to be able to go every week ... the least you can do is pop in once a month or so! :D

    ... oh, and if you go on 24 Oct, I may just see you there. depending upon how Sky moves things around and the Europa League draw, that could be the week I get over, which could mean that my annual Yorkshire/Wednesday jaunt takes me to Rov'rum.
