Transfer rumours, targets & new signings


Doha

Recommended Posts

As its a thread about transfer rumours, not RZ's wild theories, has anyone heard updates or new rumours.. Rodney leaving?? Benning leaving (appears 3rd choice LWB)?? or players linked?

I can't see anything new on Twitter, in fact its getting boring this week after the excitement of 7 days ago.

The Rodney situation is really strange I think I'm right in saying he hobbled off in the driving rain at Bristol Rovers on December 7th and hasn't featured since ? . Six and a half weeks ago and not really any information on his whereabouts.

So as we couldn't fill our bench I assume he's injured but I don't know if it's me missing snippets of information but what the heck is his injury?

I think the current situation shows the flaws in our recruitment  and retention strategy. Last year all the out of contract players were told in May that they were out. That means that all of this years contract players are probably expecting the same so they have 4 months to find another job basically, either with us or someone else. That has to affect their performance. Also the business of not paying bonuses when we are below 7th. We are below 7th now because we had games called off due to Covid. It is just after Christmas and suddenly their pay has dropped. That is hardly a motivator. 

I am sure DC said it was the players idea to get the win bonuses etc if they were in the top 7,i know that wont suit with what you are trying to get at but no mither crack on me owd fruit.

I do apologise for quoting i have done well to take no notice of owd RZ here over the last couple of weeks but sometimes he boils my bag,as he was always going to be more vocal now we are dropping down a bit,him and Pope must be loving it right now

It find it strange that just because I have a different opinion about the manager that some people seem to think abuse is OK. If I am wrong, we will get promoted so why does it bother anyone that I have a different opinion? What I say will make absolutely no difference to the outcome of the season. I thought this was a message board to discuss all things Port Vale. To discuss something it is usual to have differing opinions. 

Having differing opinions on managers or players is fair enough BUT you are off the scale,your clear pathetic hatred of DC started before we had even played a game and to me your reaction to him has been silly from day one,you seem to want him and us to fail just for your own pig headed i told you so attitude and thats why i think you get abuse. We go on good runs,make a decent signing and you still refuse to give DC credit for anything at all and thats why its so pathetic.

By RZ’s warped metrics Sir John should be classed as a failure as it went wrong in the end and he could say ‘I told you so’!

DC said he was near fitness last week but I thought he was quite shifty when asked about the rumour in the press conference. I think there could something in it.

DC says they're trying to get 3 or 4 over the line by the end of the window so should be more interesting next week

I’m hoping one will be the keeper.I noticed Walton has signed permanent at Ipswich. Maybe they are prepared to let us have the lad who was at Salford? Can’t spell his name so won’t even try!!He would be a big upgrade.

I don't think there's too much wrong with what you've said here, RZ. The ideal situation is that players who aren't guaranteed a future beyond May (whether they're contracted for longer or not) step up a gear to make sure they're on the retained list. After all, they're probably the type of players you'd want around the club as oppose to those that would let it impact their performance negatively.

I'm sorry, but I think DC's comment must be ironic. Otherwise I don't get why he never seemed to look his way! He was left on the bench for the full 90 minutes more often than coming on. If he was so "outstanding", why couldn't he seem to buy his way into the starting 11? 

Unlike DC and the backroom staff we were never fully aware of his fitness levels? If he comes on as an impact sub he was good...and made that impact, But, as a starter he always seemed to flag at around 60/70 mins? Maybe that's why he never became one of the first names on the team sheet?
