    If you can get his head right, you'll have England's No. 1.

    Good Luck to him and Palace.........


    Just glad we dodged that £25m transfer bullet last year and went for Heaton instead, it was touch and go for a while. Palace did a nice deal for what they paid, hopefully find his form again soon.

    Its 6 years as Huddersfield agreed a deal that would guarantee them income even after the parachute payments have ended. This means that each season we will pay them £2.5m, quite a shrewd deal that. No doubt with coronavirus killing off various income streams, other clubs will be going for payment plans like this.

    We have to be a bit more creative than other clubs to purchase players as we have one of the smallest transfer kitty’s in the premier league.

    I think 19 goals is a great return in that Huddersfield team last season. Hopefully he gets off the mark quite quickly, we even got rid of Zohore to Millwall yesterday and Kanu is out for a long period with a broken arm.

    What happened to the £140m promotion payment, that should have helped with the transfer kitty. Not sure I like the idea of players on the never, never, could still be paying for them when they need replacing but have no value.

    What will happen with Austin now, with no transfer? is he out of favour? Not a player you want hanging around on £70k a week if Slav's not keen on him. We have had our share of those

    This is the insanity of football finances.

    Butland was valued at £25m last season and £500k this.

    Nice to put one over an ex-manager.

    We were much improved in the second half and, I believe, worthy winners.

    Barnsley up next, on Wednesday.

    You do know that £140m isn’t given to you in one lump at the start of the season? It’s a mixture of TV payments, league position (you get £96m for finishing last!) and higher charge for gate receipts (which are non existent at the moment).

    The only money you get is championship league position and a bonus for promotion, there’s no massive bounty. The £140m is what promotion is worth for going up not an actual payment when promoted.

    I read somewhere that we picked him up for £1m ... but I'm not going to argue over the odd £500k ... pah!

    But hey, you never know, he might feel a bit more included in a 'smaller club' and his value will skyrocket again.


    Had it not been for Hennessey getting injured in the international v Bulgaria I don't think we were even in for a GK.


    Tough for the Welshman as it looks as if he might be out until January and probably then moved on if JB can make himself a reliable No.2, especially seeing as he's been given a 3 year contra

    Yes, but it's still collateral that clubs can use to forward their development. Many teams are selling the delayed transfer payments at a discount so that they have much needed funds available Surprised Huddersfield are in a position to give a £15m loan over 6 years unless there are some hefty fees involved.

    Sucks this £15 box office on top of the sports package, our next 2 are on box office and I'm sure there will be many more after that.

    I know there are a few freebie sites out there but feel obligated to pay when it's Villa
