Absolutely -  no qualms with our dealings. Big fan of Cass and his potential.

Just rather it wasn’t splashed publicly on an ex players social media. Feels a little 4 years ago.

The key is he’s very much an ex player.  Why can’t Birchall put his opinion out there when seemingly everyone else can?  You don’t have to agree with what he says but he’s doing nothing wrong.

We’ve clearly had some discussions regarding his contract which, unfortunately in my view, haven’t been to Gibbo’s satisfaction.  Only time will tell if we’ve made the right choice.  Gibbo could play every game next season.  He could play non.  We could sign a better replacement.  We could struggle to find one.  We’ll see.

Chris is known to be a massive gossip and pot stirrer. Pretends to have in with the club still which isn't the case. He's a vale fan when we're on the up but whenever it's something wrong or one his pals leaves (I.E pope) he then has a say or a little dig at the owners. 
Don't get me wrong  he's entitled to have an opinion just like the rest of us. 
I don't know the Gibbons deal and I don't think he really does unless James himself told him which is fair enough. 
I'm just not a fan of the bloke and never take what he says seriously 

Birchall should keep his thoughts private, Radio Stoke should consider their summarisers next season, we don't need any more ex players with agendas passing opinions.

I think the contributors they have with past connections cannot be trusted to give balanced and consistent commentary and insight. They should hire more talents that build up their knowledge over time and don’t have agendas as you say.

Does that mean nobody can express their opinion on how the club spend the budget?  That’s all Birchall is doing.

Are you going to comment on every person who has objected to Birchalls comment,or just comment on mine?

I'll look forward to seeing you do this on every one who has objected.

I have my opinion too...I don't think Birchall should get involved as it's stirring a whole lot of nonsense up. What's done is done...Gibbo turned the offer down and he moves on.

Whoever gets Telford will be paying top dollar. He’ll have contracts on the table from 15+ clubs in L2 and L1. I think it’s unlikely he comes here as surely he’d be a great signing as a 4th or 5th at Wednesday but still making more than Wilson or Proctor.

Anyway  forgetting players in the past. I feel we may get some sort of announcement with Benning today 

It would certainly be a good time to do it and shift the conversation.

yes regardless of what you think about Birchalls comments, his comments are whipping up a hornets nest between us now - its a shame as we have pretty much mostly been in agreement on the Gibbo situation up to now.

Get lost Birchall...got nothing to do with you. He should have ended his post at "That's their decision."
Surely Birchall has someone who knows JG has more of a right to express his opinion than any of us who just watched him play

Agreed. I probably shouldn't have chimed in either to be fair to add fuel to the fire but hey ho we're only human. 

I also feel the Telford situation is dragging now. Even seen clubs like Cardiff and Bristol City linked which I feel is way to high for a player like Telford. Too many fake twitter accounts unfortunately with utter tripe 

 

I do feel we need a signing soon though for a boost for everyone. Fans will be feeling nervous after yesterday's news

For him and our other targets it's going to come down to what is important to a player and career needs. 

I must admit I like the fact we don't play the money game and look at the bigger picture, developing players and treating them and the families in a special way. If thats important then we are a really good fit for players.

If you throw money at players wages you will have big problems. Live by the sword then you die by the sword. 

We just need to stick to the 1st year of our 5 year plan.

There's plenty of people who disagree with Birchall giving his opinion so it'll keep you busy putting your comments on their posts too.

I don't think anyone has more of opinion than anyone else. I just think what Birchall said was unnecessary and serves no purpose.

Gibbo chose to decline the offer. What's done is done

Chris Birchall is embarrassing. Can't stand the bloke. He's entitled to his opinion, but it's the tone.

The ppl running the club are far more professional & savvy than you Chris, fortunately for us.

I'm sure Gibbo was offered what we considered a fair deal based on him playing less than a 3rd of our league games over the past 3 seasons. Clown.

So our top earner is on 1850 I'm sure I read. That means Gibbo was on approx 900 a week. 

Now I'm not sure who Birchall is referring to, possibly Hussey? There's no doubt we strangely pushed the boat out to get him. However he was a regular in a League one side albeit I don't rate him myself but it's not my call ! 

Maybe that's the going rate and a sellers market in January when teams either panic or bring in decent additions like we did ( in the main )

Either way I simply don't believe Gibbo was on 900 a week however poor his number of appearances were .

I know nathan smith is on 2500 a week not sure if hes top earner but think our wages go up a bit higher than 1850

I didn't believe those squad salary comments from DF at the time, and I don't believe them now.

There's no chance in hell we don't have a player on over 100k/year. That's just ridiculous.

One website has him down on £1100 a week but that also has Pett on £600 which I can't believe would be the case!

Its all guesswork though isnt it; and the £1850 may well be true, but is that inclusive? or goals and appearances on top? , plus as has been commented on previously, the players agreed a bonus only if we went up, so that must be on top of the £1850. So...........................none of us have a clue 👍👍👍
