@mot Fixed it, thanks
@Captain_Peacock Y'know I'd never guessed that!
9 months, 4 weeks ago on The French Trialist: Sebastien Faure
@mrbigwheels There you go, just for you mate. I was in two minds whether to just right "we don't know owt about him"!
10 months ago on Yellow Card To Speed Up Austin Move
@Dje No you can't I don't think. But you could upload it to photobucket or imageshack or something and paste the link here I think?
10 months ago on Only Ourselves To Blame If Robert Snodgrass Leaves
I'll write what I like Irving. After you resorted to smug self-congratulation and then disappeared once faced with somebody willing to disagree with you and legitimately ask you difficult questions on the crusading topic you started on the other thread I'm surprised you think telling me how to feel is going to achieve anything whatsoever?

@Dje @Tare And yet that final sentence is exactly what the Revie era teaches us. A manager who won things and left a healthy bank balance from the success. A manager who stressed keeping players and building on them over the years and creating a real community.
We're pointing to it all the time with Norwich, folk like Lorimer should be pointing to it through the example of the team they played in.
@chloe1851 Chloe, he said these quotes in front of a crowd of fans (and Lorimer) months ago. He didn't deny it then, he isn't denying it now, and several fans reported he said these quotes. I frankly don't believe you have spoken to him.
@Not keen on Ken I know because I had the misfortune of living in Norwich over Jan/Feb and it's a pretty small city. What I heard was exactly the same as comes out in rumours about just about every other one that left mate.
For 200k p/w I'll cut the grass with me teeth!
@kentwhitestu If only I knew mate!
It does feel close. But then it felt close 3 weeks ago tbh.
@Not keen on Ken No it's not. Leeds frequently give one offer, a miniscule rise, so they can say they offered an improved contract and the player rejected it.
Really, if you honestly believe what you just wrote, you're being played.
@mrbigwheels @hrfy.. @tss
If the new guys could afford Snoddy and Snoddy was happy to stay at Leeds under the new guys, why wouldn't he just reject any offer then?
In fact, just to fuck Bates off, why doesn't he just reject every offer and purposely leave for free? lol
@Dje A simple, incredibly flawed, logic. As Derby are helping to highlight...
@TSS Vayrynen 9k-10k according to Bates.
That's a decent first team wage. We SHOULD be able to afford double that for someone as important as Snoddy, as an exception, but we won't.

£16m the first year for the clubs that went down this season. Not sure about after that.
I think the most irritating thing for me personally is that Leeds is so big, our income has been bigger than teams even with para payments. Look at the financial results from April - and only £4m more for the teams demoted this season.
Yet we're spending it on apparent "vendettas" and corporate facilities.
He hasn't turned anything down, the offer is still on the table. And I've only heard rumours but none have been as high as 20k p/w
@Tyler75 @mrbigwheels Can't imagine players like Snodgrass will think it any more likely that promises will be any less empty if Bates is staying on in any significant way.

@Old Goat Thought Taiwo signed full time for them? If I remember right he had a shocking injury at some point? Then he wrote something in Daily Mail about sort of regretting his move
