Southampton suggesting that players signed in January shouldn't be allowed to play in rearranged games postponed before window opened. Fair point I suppose
I think there is a argument there for sure. Considering Newcastle will probably try to load up 4-5 players quickly.

I think this is a non-starter. Do we not let players that were injured for the first fixture play in the rearranged fixture? A club could realistically find itself unable to fill the subs bench because they sold 3-4 and bought in 3-4 players in January, through no fault of their own.

Similar to the rule for cup games - signed players can't play in cup replays.

But they were already under contract different scenario. Also eg Newcastle might not sell as many.

I don't think you can change the rules of a competition half way through the season. This was discussed on the Guardian podcast earlier in the week - do you not let someone who was injured for the first game play in the re-arranged fixture? Would Man Utd complain if Rico plays in the game against them? Especially if its not Brentford's fault the game got postponed...

They were saying on SSN last night that Ramsey was on £400k per week at Juve!!
But that was because he joined on a free …. but still 😱
It's even worse than that. In order to support their domestic game, three(?) seasons ago the Italian government passed a law saying that foreign players signing for Italian clubs would pay only half the normal tax rate (approx 25% vs 50%?).

Which is partly why a load of players signed up from abroad, incl one Cristiano Ronaldo for Juve.

Which means that if any English club had to match Ramsey's £400k at Juve (i.e. £300k net), they'd actually have to offer him £600k per week gross.

Of course Ramsey isn't in a position to command anything like that in England, but it makes genuinely in-demand players that much more expensive if you have to buy them out of a contract with an Italian club.

New signings who wouldn’t have been available even if fit is not the same as a contracted player injured or out with Covid for the original tie.

According to the Watford flow chart, the next managerial sacking comes after the transfer window closes. This gives the new manager no chance to make additions to the squad and makes relegation more likely.

I was amazed Ranieri survived until the new year!

I'd be more amazed if he survived until Feb.
If he does he should really have a testimonial game of some sort🤣

Spurs after Traore from Wolves 😂😂 all power and no end product!
Maybe they should employ a trumpeter to play beyond the opponents goal to beckon him to run in that direction. I am sure sometimes he has his head down and has little clue where he is heading or if any teammates can keep up with him

Watford linked with a crowd scene of players it seems. Much as I rather like Ranieri, I worry that he will be sacked and a manager is drafted in to keep them up. Probably Allardyce. I am confident we will be safe but it helps to have several poor sides at the bottom of the table all the same.

The Ricky Shakes of the PL!
Maybe would not say no to him , he gave Rico Henry a torrid time when were played Wolves. They needed someone like Toney on the end of the openings he created

Sensible fee and wages of course

Exactly who he reminds me of lol wouldn't want him anywhere near our team would be so infuriating watching it. I'm sure quite a lot of Wolves fans will be happy to cash in.

Chris Wood now on the verge of signing for Newcastle. Think this is a very shrewd signing for NUFC. Not sure what that does for Burnley however….

Only scored 3 goals this season. 1 was against us in that horror show. The others were against Palace and Leeds.

Personally I think Newcastle are spunking £20m away.

They don't care the money is nothing to them. If it increases their chances of staying up they'll do it. Reckon they'll get at least 2 or 3 goals from Wood heading in Trippier crosses. Plus they weaken a rival.

Shrewd? I think its a meh signing. Newcastle were talking about the likes of mbappe coming through the door when the money came in, instead they get chris wood

Shrewd as in taking the best player from a team you need to finish above.

Saw Pritchard playing for Sunderland a few days ago and he looked real class... if only.....
If only…what? He was good enough for the premier league?
Hardly anyone in the Premier League will sell to Newcastle, the rest of the club's want them as far in the rearview mirror as possible

I still think they are deep in trouble
See below, Burley happy to sell their only goal scorer to newcastle when they can’t buy a goal.
Chris Wood latest player to be linked with Newcastle.

20m for a 30 year old on 3 goals, shows how desperate Newcastle are prepared to get. Burnley must think Xmas has come again.

Reinforce your squad's known weaknesses with experienced players that only need to get you through the next 5 months, while planning for the Premier League next season. Seems a sensible use of funds.

Tbf, Dyche isn't stupid, nor (I assume) are Burnley desperate for the money, otherwise they'd be selling Tarks first/as well.

My guess is that they reckon if they sell Wood now, they'll get a fee which they'd never have got in any other circumstances and which they can use to buy a replacement who will be at least as good, and probably much younger.

One to watch.

Of course they didn't want to sell him. However, the release clause was matched so they couldn't stop it and I presume Wood wanted to go as his wages would increase not insignificantly

Fair enough, I hadn't realised there was a release fee.

But assuming it's somewhere near the £20m(?) being quoted, BFC must still have a decent chance of getting an adequate, and quite possibly younger, replacement at little or no extra cost.

And with such a quiet window so far, any club with a few quid to spend must be in a good position.

20M quid to get a 31 year old player for 6 months who has only scored 3 goals this season. Sensible use of funds.....you sure. Would be better off buying a Championship player for peanuts or Andy Carroll. How much would it cost to loan that bloke Nketia or similar from Arsenal for 6 months?

I think they will really struggle to get a good replacement who can contribute immediately even with £20m to spend (assuming they will spend that much). In this window it will be v difficult and Wood was well trained in and suited to their style. They are as good as gone imo.

You may well be right, but part of their present predicament must be that Wood doesn't look to have been performing anyhow. Of course it may not be his fault, but 3 goals in 17 PL games this season is below his normal contribution.

And if he's been angling for a move anyhow, it might be better to have him out of the place for the sake of team morale?

Tbh, NUFC might be able to persuade the bars and night club of Newcastle to subsidise his wages, since they'll get it all back from Carroll and his mates anyhow, in a massive boost to the nighttime economy.

Oh wait, I forgot to factor in their increased door security expenses, so maybe not.

Meanwhile, on a (slightly more) serious note, apparently he was one of two or three players who looked like they gave a sh1t in Reading's 7-0 drubbing by Fulham last evening, incl having two 'goals' disallowed.

They still have Cornet and Rodrigues plus £20m to spend on reinforcement(s) so seems a good deal.
