Just like Mathews bottled it for United when Givens went on and missed !! i as many would not out a player for missing a penalty , thats lfe it happens...but refusing to take one ! a leading player, a 10m player not feeling confident !! YOUR HAVING A LAUGH.
Which part of my original response didnt you understand...the bit that said he didn't refuse to take one...or the bit that said he didn't refuse to take one...

Please try and keep up...

I agree 14m for Assombalonga is ridiculous, however players are only worth what clubs are prepared to pay for them.

The problem is weekly wages which players are demanding, I dread to think what the wage bill is at SWFC. For once we have a chairman who is happy to put his hand in his pocket.

14 million is a hell of a fee for an injury prone striker....

mind you Villa paid 15 million for McCormack ,15 million for Kodjia and 12 million for Scott Hogan last season....

Makes Jordan Rhodes fee of 8 million seem an absolute steal...

I Do mainly think They was a lot of players last season signed that for whatever reason did not play or play much . but all still took a wage , I also think theres a Massive problem with not having Reserve Football anymore , its ok having U23s but that still means some back up players arnt getting much football to 1, Show CC what he can do OR 2, Put himself in shop window sort of speak to move on .

big Question this season- CC needs first team players and abit of luck with players keeping free from injury , deffo cover at Cback needed

Harking back to the OP's original false claims the Owls had a 3m offer for Sean Morrison rejected by Cardiff (must have slipped through the pinch).

If you would be kind enough to provide a bit of proof of this said bid? Only in this day and age it is normal for agents to "instigate interest" in order to bag his player a better deal and line his own pocket. Apparently United lodged bids for and were supposedly desperate to sign Jason McCarty? Well at least up until Chris Wilder absolutely laughed it off when asked about him. He then went on to explain that he wasn't ever on our radars and that we weren't interested in him and sure as hell didn't table any bids for him.

And then we have the social media generation in which rubbish / spoof twitter rumours these days get spread around like wildfire before being picked up on by lazy journalists and even bookmakers.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock "You have to take your hat off to Sean, he could have moved on after being made quite a lucrative offer "

Sports writers Dom Howson and Chris Holt both report that the rumours of the Owls tabling a 3m offer were accurate.

Local sports journalists get it wrong quite a bit as we all know therefore please feel free to provide actual evidence of this said 3m bid.

These two mostly get it right they don't post rumour and speculation, I know Dom quite well, he's a Huddersfield fan in reality but a good bloke, I'll tell him an ambulance driver is accusing him of making stories up next time I see him.

The usual bickering and sniping can cease once again. If you have a problem with another member, put them on ignore as you've been told countless times before or report it to us.
