I'm guessing here ...

But, we offered Bidwell a new deal, on reduced terms and he turned it down. Warburton said he wanted to keep him (having worked with him before), and the only stumbling block ... was the money on offer. It would still have been more money a week than most people reading this earn - probably a lot more.

Presumably, Bidwell thinks he can get what he wants elsewhere.

Good luck to him.

I suspect reality will hit for a lot of out of contract players very soon.

IMO FFP will mean that a lot of clubs will no longer risk big money on players who will run their contracts down and move on to the next one, it ensures they get high wages as there is no transfer fee.

Thank God, we could use a winger.

FFP at Championship level may lead to quite a few players having to re-evaluate their market worth. Being paid more money a week than many people earn in a year for being an OK footballer, but nothing special just does not work.
Great post. Nail on the head.

No substance or source. Purely a personal thought here.

Dan Butler from Newport. Left back, out of contract. Player of the year for two years on the trot. Played very well in their Fa cup run. Only 25 years old.

Could fit the bill to replace Bidwell

That is the sort of area we will be looking at for a while so maybe a good shout. Does he look like he would fit the attacking full back role required?

Yeah, lovely crosser of the ball. Whether he can make the step up from League 2 is the bigger question. I think Peterborough are chasing him

Anyone else find it annoying that Villa were able to pick up a player like McGinn from Hibs for 5p? (3M) whistle

Not really considering the last time we parted with 3m for a player was 4yrs ago if google is correct. (Luongo & even that is questionable).

Not like we’ve spent a fortune on duds lately, we don’t spend that kinda money on a player anymore.

The club made quite a big thing about our scouting network with Penrice at the helm but it seems that we are still missing out on many players.

Is Penrice still involved? Or did he move on when Olly left?

He's signed for Peterborough today.

Luongo came as a deal with Ben Gladwin.
