Hope Mark Davies is involved come the start of the season, could be the key for the club. Would like to see Rob Hall involved too, showed good promise in the games he has played. Mark Davies not being risked?

Fortress macron first of many defeats I,m afraid. May as well throw the kids in as Beckford is not good enough.

The team is worse now than it was last year. No one in the front four seemed to have a clue about what they should be doing. I would also question the ability to do it. Improved slightly when Beckford and Pratley went off. Sitting back and hitting teams on the break is all well and good if you aren't going to concede goals. We are going to concede and we are not going to score. Is playing the ball out from the back an 80 yard cross field ball from Mills. What is wrong with moving into space to receive the ball and then passing to someone in space? Very basic but current personnel cannot do it. Another football lesson given today. The future looks very bleak.

Not even van gaal, wenger or moreno could make a bunch of free transfers into a championship winning side, they won't be getting my money. Good luck dougie, bad luck gartside.

Freedman spending time making excuses about why there is no money and conveniently picks 'loan' players like Tuncay, Miyachi, Boyata and Kakuta as the reason. Notice he didn't mention Butterfield? Didn't mention Bolger who he brought in and paid good money to for over a year without him playing in a competetive game (now he's been told he can move on), he also didn't mention Wiltshire or Sturrige - why not? How many players of that caliber has he brought to the team on loan? If Freedman wants to know why there is no money - stop trying to blame previous managers when his boss is the problem. No players can come into the club unless he 'approves' the loan or purchase, so all those players he named were 'approved' by Gartside - check the signatures on the bottom of their contracts. Freedman is lucky that the club doesn't have any money - otherwise he would have been sacked 6 months ago and the financial situation just means that the club can't afford to sack him and his hanger-ons!!!

Don't know what planet Gartslime is on , the arrogance of the man is breathtaking, its debatable whether he should be dismissed or jailed for gross incompetence, I suppose the same could be said of Freedman, both need to go NOW !
