Slap some talc on your cheeks and snuggle down with a favourite blankie. You will feel better tomorrow at ten past three when we will have witnessed a quick fire hat trick from Hoskins  Grin

Are you seriously telling me he justified what were paying him.

Yes he was the most creative of our midfield, but that says more about just how bad the others are more than anything else.

To be paying 3-5k for someone that turns up and plays once a month is not good enough in my opion.

Compare him to someone like Martin Smith (who would have the same standing in the squad as crooks does presently) crooks us not for the lace smudgers boots.

Let's see what curle has in store shall we?

Glasto, itís been a pretty sh**y day all in all and the prospect of tomorrow to come, is there any chance we can move away from the fantasy wages game - youíve already proved you havenít got a clue of the actual figures. For the last time no one is claiming that he was the second coming of Martin smith but he was our most talented player and one of the few that occasionally lit up the mediocrity. I agree that it all depends on what KC brings in but I wish I shared your optimism on the quality of replacements.

Yep, lazy, useless, not fit to lace Smudger's boots - but curiously being bought by a team two divisions above us....

The reality was somewhere in between. Underrated by some and the same time being overrated by others. He was OK but not the be all and end all.

Did we play and lose a game today?

Just wondered, because of the amount of doom-mongers on this forum tonight. Mostly the same ones that come out after a defeat.

It's the 11th January - has the transfer window closed?

KC puts it well in his summary, if player valuations are met, then talks can happen.

A lot of our fans have called the players gutless. Boots on the other foot reading some over the top comments on here from some.

Hope and am sure that he will do well. This will be a massive loss for us.

Looking forward to us investing the cash on new players as I'm sure that is what we can expect  Undecided

Good move from KT.
Especially on the business front.
Frees up some cash.
My source has been 100% correct so far.
Next up...JJOT or Pierre?

Surely now Pierre and Turnbull are the only players left in the squad with any monetary value whatsoever and the rest could happily leave on free transfers.

Signing Crooks was a huge coup at the time but we failed to get the best out of him.
Gutted he's gone as probably our most talented forward player.
That said, he's average League 1 and can't see him pulling up trees in a struggling Championship side.
Can accept he wanted to play at a higer level and can accept him going IF the money is invested in replacements.
Given a choice between keeping JJOT and Crooks, I'd want JJOT in this division every time. Don't understand the criticism of JJOT. He was poor last few games but was carrying injury and 1 yellow from a ban.

Apologies if Iíve overreacted - Iíve calmed down a bit now and regained a bit of perspective (like I say itís been a sh** day on top of a cr** week for one reason or another!). After reading KCís well balanced interview it does make sense (to a degree) - itís likely to be short term pain before hopefully longer term gain. Hereís hoping we can pull off some kind of a result tomorrow.

Defiantly if you read KC's but on the entire it makes sense and as you say long term gain for a bit of short term pain

Glad Crooks has gone. He didn't put in the effort. Unless Rotherham have got him on a bargain basement fee they have f#cked up badly. We need to get rid of about 5 more now. The only issue is will KT and his mates fork out for some replacements? Personally I don't think they will. Based on the fact that I think he is in an asset-stripping exercise. I can't stand the guy.

Will be happier come the summer if we are still in league 2 and can really clear some of the deadwood. Would be amazed if anyone out of contract gets a new offer.
