50% end product is world elite surely? For the first time ever I'm.struggling to get involved in transfers and rumours. usually one of my favourite times of the season.
End product is just the ball ending up where he thinks it will end up, 50% in terms of finding a Town player with any final ball not 50% finding the net or setting up a goalscoring chance.

If he could actually pass to a Town player and 50% hit its target he will be doing well.

I would think that Grant has a pass rate of probably 80%+ when his pass finds its target.

DJ would be stupid not to sign for Brentford if they're interested.

You really think he's gonna sit there and go, "But I can learn at Swindon!". He won't. He's talented and could easily break into Brentfords first team within months. He'll get paid more. He's closer to home. You can try and reason whatever way you want but hell even I'd sign for Brentford over Swindon!

Consistency is probably 60-70% of what makes a top level player. Used to watch a fair bit of non-league at The Mighty Heed and then Lancaster City, you would see players in most games that were technically on a par with Premier League players but they could do it probably 1 time in say 20 passes/dribbles, its being able to do it 18 times in 20 that makes you a top player.

Absolutely, and add to that attitude as well.

+ movement/speed of thought.

Most of the top passes in the premier league, any lower league players could make. But only if they spot it, and only if someone moves for them first.

Heíll only break into their first team if they fail to go up and there team is sold off to Premier League teams.

DJs best career move would be going somewhere where he will play 35 games next season. Naturally, no one will give him this advise and heíll be advised to accept the best wage.

Nixon on Yates:

Quote
Same as last week. Blackpool offer seems to be suitable at around 250. Swindon offering an instalments package. Still down to lad in the end.

If itís down to Yates to choose, then wages will probably win. If we arenít too far apart we may have a squeak.

I have it on good authority that he wants to come back here badly.

Do Blackpool have money now? Their attendances were not much higher than ours last season and we were in a league below them.

There could be very many factors in his decision, no evidence he is solely motivated by wages. And a salary cap may well flatten much of the difference, if there is any. It may even be we're offering him better wages?

On face value their new owner seems to have cash, whether he is prepared to spend it appears a little less clear at the moment.

Heís in Spain with the squad now, isnít he? Chuck a few San Miguelís down his neck, give him a pen and get his signature.

Blackpool arenít going anywhere.

Yates has spoke openly about loving his time at Swindon and he said he enjoys working with Wellens, his mum also has spoke about him loving it with us and that we play him in the right position to get the best from him.

If it came down to a few quid difference I am 100% certain he would choose us over Blackpool.

He is likely to relocate no matter who he signs for if the rumoured 3 year deal is on offer.
