The undisclosed fee thing really pisses me off. In the absence of any other information, people will just continue to speculate, and the sense that he's gone on the cheap is going to generate a lot of criticism. Very much deserved in my view.

Good luck to Smithies though. He's been very good for us and deserves his chance in the Premier League.
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Completely agree, the impression will be if nothing to hide why undisclosed.

So that’s three big hitters out the door.

Hope we have a finger or two in a few pies ourselves.

Hugely disappointing but not altogether unsurprising as we have been preparing replacement keepers for some time now. I'm not 100% convinced by Ingram or Lumley both of whom seem to me to be slightly ponderous. However, in our favour I think we still have Gavin Ward as the goalkeeping coach and I think he's good so hopefully one of Ingram or Lumley can step up to the plate.
Come on you Sooopa ........

The glee at seeing Germany exit the World Cup at the group stage has now been superseded by this disappointing (if not unexpected) news.

Fully f*cked off by FFP, another Rangers fire sale & the complete lack of transparency from the club's "management team". In my book Smithies departure is up there with Phil Parkes transfer to Wet Spam...well not quite but almost.

Just crap!

Don’t worry to much he’ll be back in the Championship next season anyway, As many have stated on here Warnock’s not Premier League material :wink:

Breaking news Cardiff City have just signed Bobby Reid from Bristol City for a reported 10m.

Someone better break Stainrod down gently.

Pushed through rather quickly but I suppose any other interested clubs did have time to respond.

Good luck Alex and thanks.

fair play Bristol City. Good to know some League clubs can negotiate a worthy fee for their prized assets.

A couple more "Ben Dover" quality player flog offs and we could very well be there! 😈
