Sheffield Wednesday made a 35m loss last season so to circumvent FFP sold stadium to another Chansiri company at a 38m profit

Villa have done the same. Seems to be the fashionable trick in the Championship these days

Depending on how the question was worded. I would be interested in having goal line technology. (cant really be any argument against- other than cost but maybe something for fa to help with) but not VAR.

tbf that's a pretty big sample size for surveys of this kind. Most of the polls you see in the papers etc are done on the basis of a few thousand if that. I wonder how many would still want VAR if the question was asked now, after the Women's World Cup?

Dunk was rumoured tobe joining Swindon barely 5 years ago as he was surplus to requirements at Brighton, we made a bid to loan him with a future transfer as part of the deal.

He decided to stay and fight for a place and that seems to have worked out well for him, 45m is a massive fee for any defender, especially one thats not even isn't an international regular.

Thing is top notch defenders are like rocking horse shit at the moment, hence the massive inflation in prices for the top end ones (not sure I would include Maguire in that bracket!) which in turn ups the price for the less good ones!

And being English too pushes the price up because of the Home Grown quota.

James Tarkowski being touted at 40m+ a player we nearly signed for peanuts (50k) when he left Oldham in 2014, we made a bid but Brentford was his chosen destination in the end.

Rather hypothetical I know but can you imagine the football world being so sanguine about such a matter. The Sun would be running enemies of the people back pages about the umpires...
