Welcome to the one two podcast by tp, we had great camerin the fan playerrelationship. An incredible is the best change in my mile. I've been in the kind of things made. The teamstronger made the bomb and stronger made kind of claim to the club. Thatkind of strange a little bit more enjoyable, a small, unbelievable tality group. Itwas just absolutely like a tangental force, just a short reminder to let you allknow that our bs legend moksa alan sale through our ut shop and also availableon ebay too. This is going to help us raise some money to improve our contentfurther and to go towards and running cost to the website thing. In thisepisode we spoke to sandolas alan nixon to get a low down on baple transferbusiness. So far on the potential sin to come in the rest of the window, we looked at nicol cheries update onjohn gabriel le ambulones sims and gave his view on which teams are most likelyto be challenging the promotion and relegation from the championship thisseason. An are you doing your car very well,thank how you doing yeah boy, good man. I appreciate you popping on em it's misof today and there are normally three of us, but obviously they being thesummer and everything at popole are on holiday, so probably got with you justthinking it obviously for colin a little bit about what you do and so ofyou know how you work at and obviously touch him on black poll people wereblood blackpot just to get a lit in fo. If you have any on on how we operateany players, we might be interested in and your senso five. That's: okay, yeah,no promotor good man. So we just start with you now your background, if that'sokay, so how do you get into what you're doing now? What do you enjoy byand watch his key interest in what you doing movie folds as well? Well, apparently away to bad footballrio when i was ten, i man down there with it so someday. I was a primaryschool with recently had a madinat up fight, so i've obviously finding itfrom quite a long time. I started we went through universityand i went down to the mirror groups scheme in plymouth, which was atremendous place telling on your trade, because they let you work in pople'sfor a couple of years, where you're studying a basic, and he also let mespecialize in sport after a year, which was the biggest attracts to lot. Okayand i want with some great people and i lanrevel quickly, and i went in thenational newspapahs a bit straight away. So i i said, then it's been all aroundthe country and i've been feeling is mainly feeling of it, since onethousand nine hundred and ninety two, which is quite a or they thought yeah, so hatt's interesting. You work innewspapers, obviously cages fifteen years and you probably one of thejournalists who, adapted probably i'll,...

...say the best in terms of social mediaas well. That must have helped you your platform and your work goes to anotherlevel in last few years. I just i don't know so much about that. It'sthis is the dose adopt on day. So i suppose you do that i'll never get myhead around. The concept of givin stories away for nothing have been areason, have been a freelance and realizing just how hard that is toactually meet the thing. What, but i suppose you get your certain stage, butbut not your priority. I wouldn't want to be starting just now and this persones, but if you're finishing you might as well try something new enjoy the social media stuff, but i'mstill a newspaper game, and the thing i asking me most is what appears in thepeople and sunday that was an else is just extras having on column and asunday there's always going to be my priority. It was always my aim and it'salways going to remain my priory and it should be for all papers. But i knowit's that that's probably another sandy paper carries a coss of column, anymore, which i think is absolutely pathetic and tells you, but the need ina business of my friend, the newspaper business, if it's not dying, iscertainly terminally all in the terms of how it goes up both things at amoment, because really it should be so much better. They should be spendingmoney on bringing the next gen elation to report us through etcetera and fromwhere i'm looking there's nothing going on. I was many faster when i was wenton that medesime. They spent fortunes on that scheme to bring people throughand a lot of people don't come through some quick famous ones and my year andanother as there's been people who've gone on, become national newspaperathos when m even tried to run the countrybriefly, alas, the campbell and cut on it. An interesting are of peopleand the good thing was it camee from a broad part of society. It wasn't just janoon cambre elite andeven less cross, and let myself go man, i'm guessing a lot of what you do nowis about trying to protect the newspaper os some day then, and i'm notgrasping figures about revenue and things like that, but and how you anyour money, but it must be a difficult bouncin in between giving suff away andfree and enticing people versus you know making money, and you get the jobsof itself. How how you finding that? Well, you know you'd love to probably do icall em every day, but i don't think the s n a ford that anymore, sosomething going to be that the focus as the bag hit and the sunday yeah antieshappens. If i happen during the week that i know wasn't being to keep ileryeah put it in the paper and i put up online whatever you know, it's notgoing to change by world in any great way, but i do it maamaa beige twelve tosixteen stories that keep for us on day and that can be a challenge. It team isbasically join the window when you...

...maybe get something you could tellsomething on monday and yust thinking is they're going to keep to this undaand you're sweating on every day, you're, like your like a hand and topwith eggs. You never know when they're going to hatch, so you do get a bittwenty about t, but does it not been going on lately for the that to beenough good life, material condersend for the pepato? That's the that's thefalca point. I do come from a geneion that thinks it. Sundy gossip is just abit of high light of the week because your teams going to get mentioned inthey're more off. Not, and you like to know, what's going on. That's that'swhy i did it the first place. I wanted to know what was going on, so i thoughtthe best way of doing that was to get into the business. So i think, shouldalways remember it for my fine viewpoint that you want to knowsomething that you didn't know before. You picked up the paper and you wantedto be acurate so does not remain the rooms as far as i'mconcerned, and they want change yeah. I do love the sundays, obviously not notjust the gossip column, but you obviously release a lot of what you'veyou know of the in phone. You say you know stories on and list all the thingsand then obviously must get people excited for that sunday morning. Soit's definitely a highlight of the week. I think for a lot of football fan. Youjust got to be careful. I not let's not get ourselves on, there's a few peoplewatching a few other papers woes. You don't want to give them too many cluesc. Think, oh man, i know what is he talking about, so you got to be asobscure as it can, but also let people know you know what was coming and i'llappely discussing story of rock with somebody, but what i do find as if you guys stillasked questions of it studies, you don't right and you really enough tosay about it and you don't want to appear like no. I get these things there. If i'm notretina, i try you keep away from it because you don't you've been so youyou only get so much team in a week and if you spend your team tessino studiesalready but out there you're wasting your team. So you've got to basicallyconcentrate on trustin a path for the sunny people and make sure theyget story survived and, as i say, i can some time o be aboutthe main film. But i mean a couple of weeks ago. We declaring stories niciatefeeding and you made an you like what i'm going to do it no, but fortunatelyit was a busy enough week to to patch up and basically bait their let ithappens that happens at those campin and you can't control some teams.Things will happen quicker than you expected yeah. That's that's! Just anitaly beast of me there's a tamen that throwing fun that soul a bot, but i'vegot to be but old for that now yeah. So what kind of people do you tend todeal with that ar? Are you obviously love at a context? Are you looking for el? It must be a part on, but it mustbe half an hour fuse a lot of the time i get told certain things and othersyou might be thinking. You know i'm looking a little bit life or this weekand asking some people if you've got any any infelt it's basically, it wouldbe an mbi. You get to know after the...

...way, all the people who know what'sgoing on and the people who don't so you concentrating the ones where theywith a good trite record. That's like back in a horse in a race. You look forcoursing distance and, as you want to rise before- and i feel if neilinformation is good, then it tallies up with somebody else has given yousomething along the same lines. Then you know the story is okay, so i find a loll of it is a filterprocess. Now you hear so much and some of his saying really and you get totake it through as best you can, if you're not sure about it, you don'ttouch it yeah. If you are and you go with a quicon, i can think of severalteams. I've been told the stories and stu what a old nonsinse that is, thattones out it's been right. I mean, i remember famously been told that modesjohnson has been is seen for rangers is paid. The fact i sen for something i thought absolute trash that can notpause a way up en and then made an awful lot of phone calls on it andsomebody who knew so a no is happening. He is goin to a into us. Unfortunately,we, the sun in colin, good story over this pat mac, the niles, a the story ofhis rat and one of the biggest scenes in history. But, as is so as to see anyteam, he hears something completely unlikely. You've got it, you go so, okay, you getto ably tuk with respect. I think that's probably the best way and youjust and your tie and make sure that you know as much as you do before youate it. If you're going to rate story, the trist going to rate story for atime like i'll always be before the event and a lot of things can happenonce you riten it for of the transfer fold down or forthe manager do if you for don, i'm afraid. That's that's! That's sacellathe game. That is the game other i think, for every tinsel you get theseare. These is probably the thought choice, player than ovile that the club gets it. Don'tclubs not forget the first to ases anymore, unless you're the very biggestclub in the world, you don't get the bet. You don't get your first choice,you get somebody that's doing your less number yeah, it happened and some ofthe mothers, some of the murders and great transfers have been by accident.You bery can't an at you, man, testin aged classic example, of something thatjust came from nowhere. Nobody saw that when coming and it came in ridiculous,run, devote circumstetit. That's the great thing of the football is thething that keeps you attracted to it as much to it. Follow people seem to thinkis a a computer game with you. You may some of you as in like it you now, youget so many things together for the transfer happen. You've got to get aplay article, the age in tigony, the clubs, the agree and it dives and itdrags and know you've got all these layers, but then clubs, o dinata, afootball chiffie football dinedor and the all want to have to see and justifythe jobs, and it just goes on and on so when you see these transfers at tonanti,si god i take people see oh, what's coming to do with it, and i said youknow i do actually here not as long as you're retint. In the first place, letit work it self pot, because...

...negotiations can take forever.Currently look at this sposed after the japanese don't have boloine. I wrote ita month. It we broke out months ago. Let's still not happen, the o, o fe o,can a chance for t, be a playing and boon yea. If tatham cut me that hatthat just tells you how definite not this for people that pull of transfersthere's always something going to grow up up or someone trying to be tooclever to ve a hundred and or two hundredgander and the rat things going wrong footballs strewn with that kind ofmadness. So as i still of course it but much asi love the stories, i feel like the back go into the studies as well. Thethings you you don't read the things that you can read and someone innonsense. It cause on the mesa start in dthe until people ho ho mad footballwas that they wouldn't believe you, but it's just. It's can easy, absolutelycrazy. So what you're trying to do is get the most sensible outcome. You think is happening andwrite about that. If you really do some of the other stuff, as i say, nobodywould believe i some one i some of the madness because of a nobody i just wenttake out, yeah agreed a. It seems, i think, a lot of it poor fans. At themoment, i probably get in a little bit, naturally just getting attached to alot of former players and what season so, you know the lone site when you doon about first and second choice and all that clearly the first choice, boutback he's going to be joining gabriel. He was there on one last season andeveryone sort of which is naturally falling on with long players on me. So as one of the sages on going at themoment and then the other one's ellie ambleton, maybe is the case played onthe list and you wrote by him on some day potential in yeah on the list, soit it's remembering it. You can't get to attach when these long players havecome back because it pope going to be assessing their qualities- and you knowthere must be more to it than just saying we want him, let's come and getin. So it's a double age, sole in every one of these cases, because you get aplayer on land. If he does well and you get promoted, which is whathappened to me, you play the binder. We alone saying this live year: yeah, ifyou get promoted, that's just a part of the story because enough, but thatcertainly the players now god, but i beg of value, no annoy photos. You knowit he's helped you. You learn the championship, but no dean with thechampionship comes there fo we win arrival of the char. We want achampionship, a place and other clubs are seen. We might do that. He looksokay and bolton now when he joined from some one. You was athought someone were going to and they did didn't so he didn't league whenhe's back there lasting of his contract, but they s him but wait minute your ina championship now you've got more money coming than we've got coming, soyou know you can pay for them. I owas only got your left, but we're not goingto cut the price. So you got to give us some money now. I was quite surprisedthat bala didn't come by. I thought you never a fat an chance ticket he's avery good player and earle's been a in the chamseven mile mecum. There's maybeother reasons for that. Frankly, i...

...don't know, maybe just what to t inlondon who knows, and obviously you get sims at ever, which you might get backto eventually, and that may just turn a tell another lawn because it suits o anbecause it plays at higher level. You gets a bit more value and i'm eccentic.So it's great to do loans and you did it so parly, but they don't say there'ssuddenly on another world. You know your up, abe and you've got she hold onwho's coming on, and i think would have done so fast. Quite clever they've gotthe beltless squad the building for the future, but in terms of the the starquality, the ones that going to cost that's still to be decided, and thatwill decide your season if you can get three or four players and reasonablepraises or good championship, lons o'going to go all right. If you don't,i would say just now: you look a little bit short, but we are still early andobviously they needed tip off the squad. The squad wasn't quite as big as itshould be, and they're going for the younger player, which hasn't money costas much. We just won't be silly, so you know you've not got your group, but youwill always need to e a for slavey, better top wits. We been to win yougames at the level and they are still to be delivered. For me,it's not a cricis m. I think it's just a stage the market that we not just now.I know it's only the weeks over her so and i who be's thinking well, we a toe, but you kind of before tani making rashover bedding for players at the moment. You've got to be sensible. You guys sayi okay! Well, how much do we want important? How much do we want gabriel?Will we get them on lone some way and all that i sto to some big bigdecisions? Still i come here, but i'd have to say that we, the last seasonthat we done so a father summer, there's always no filament for ballintelligence within the club and the reasonable amon common sense. So youshould be all right, but it will come down that the season will hand when thenext the or for saying es yeah. I think that's how i see it. Ithink eight players have come in so far this summer. So that's not a smallnumber. Is it to more of signed additional contracts which helped aswell because they would have been needed to ben to be replaced. Soarguably, i've got eleven or twelve deals done from the star of the window.To now and now just comes down, it's not the quantities. There is just aquality in nows and it's a three or four, whether its lone going to payingthe right money to get him permanently. It's going to be really interestingbetween now and the end of the window to see see what happens, i think if youlook at the charmest as a whole every summer, from a new top point ofview, i look at the championship, i'm not trying to figure out who's going todo base, so i can waste a couple of bob back and i'm ticket o oy a nobodypulling you a couple of years ago in the grace cup. We i can we a to thecost rat on you. Yes, he i wi, but i'm looking just. I can't see one clump inthe challenger you now i would see, has...

...send anybody. That's going to make avast a in the defons think west blow of come down, saying that very good forthe agent and moment i think my clan as a solace and a half again on lane. Soeven a relegating club isn't spending money. Cheyenne spend the money. Filmhave yet tis pain money. So it looks like the kind of sees what is going tobe very vadill. There's nobody jumping out. I think if somebody had the bottleand a finance, they could possibly buy the way promotion this season. I don'tsee any even appen at the moment and that's really surprised, and so i thinkwe might have possibly a dumbdest, but it wasn't agreat say dinner and somebody could surprise there'ssomething you could come through now. How was in your possession i'm thinkingamon? Do you really go for a herbemont turns to the top six? How much is itgoing to cost that that's going to be the question?That's been a question for a lot of clubs. The some clubs will not have themoney. Other clubs, for example the biggest example. Probably stalk thirtyhave got more money. You know what to do with, but i can't spend it and theynever spend up. Was they either? So i would feeling if you would ask me, as iwent the charmian chap right now, i would not have a clue. I don't thinkanybody wel have simply because it's so level and it's been a quiet market- imean i would just who's been the best sam and in junichi the summer. I can'tthink of one i really can't think of. I can think solid sience. I can't say ofsomebody you know or he's going to win. You promotion et he's going to gettwenty girls as that's nothing remotely like it's been done. Obviously we'retalking about cavity and there's not a criticism. It's just a fine ertado's,not there's not much money, a esdaile skirter life over the red shit,independently, rich clubs and what we're getting news. It's goin to be a video open division.So anything could happen. You don't want to be short because you don't wantto drop out that, but anybody just they had real moneyand thought well. Hate have a gun, but let's have a goal. We could do thiswhatever chance, but as we speak in the second half of the way do not is rogy doing that and it's sounusual, but so let us up their primier leagues about at that as well, but weconcentrate charmans and it just before i come on and i look to the leaguetable and it is a league table for the time youseti he's jumping out here. Nobody, the best thing a is in the charanship, hasbeen much from a point in the manager for me, so i think he's mad wood, butmana just can't win you. Li they've got to have the proper man. O players havegot a a twenty go, a season, man in the right and so far we've not seen thatand i don't see any of it and saw it...

...just over the top of the hill. Somebodymake surprise as let on as it stands. Just now is a very many even filledyeah. There there's been a lot of mageria change, an the at say so marcoskills comin, obviously scot parkers gone to barmouth west rom jeffy. I a got any manager as well. Sothat's the key changes it happen, but thet's, no many big standings and thatprobably not in of impact of that means there's no big sales at the other endof the spectrum of the other clubs further down on getting the signseither. So that's, what's probably called such just by market. Well, ifyou learn the relegated, sades normally shared the best players and the fainthomes for them and and the premier leaves a primary connoypick up the best ones who been relegated. There's not be too manykisses in at there's, not been much leaving fillem shapin ed me. Eventually,i lose one or two of the better players. West brom maybe put out maybe some ofyou'll pick up with it, but because the premier league is handled they're, nottaking a chance in these players and giving you fifteen million forsearching, search on and the montes case by one it was a one, a d, twentyfive million. So the clubs you would normally maybe take a gamble havinggood the money to take that cumble they're. Looking at every every millionthey've got, i o o only can't spend out. What can we gave you a player? That'snot much good, so its a many very takna market. Just now- and i don't know- idon't know- if we're going to break that unless we get to the start of thisseason- and somebody starts particularly well or particularly bilinas a panico. But even then i think i'd be relatively subdued. I mean i thinkit's surely a club ly fillin o famed for spending money will start spendingmoney shortly, michaels bein a taking that job unless he was told her hismoney, expend and yeah so far, they're not land in a blow. We look at bornworth so many good players messed out new manager, but this been a half upteam just now trying to get plays at the door to balance the books. It's is a it's a strange all seen achampionship rena now. What do you think of the bottom? Then? Obviouslydarbar, the one who stick out is being in a bit of a situation. I suppose there's not really manyothers is of the looking particularly poor as if you are organized, butthere's still things bits to do with it in the market of the moment. I suppose you could pick out the waster teamslast season. I thought by the most lately three been earlyage last season.Shife wants to because of the point, join that company diabe, so many things to sort out anabsolute shame or some to that club. Thou get so many things that i wouldn'tsee. There's too many of the den the bottom poor sades the promoted this wall, thepromite teams well find it difficult simply because of the forty six game,nit pin them and have to do a big squads to to survive. But then again,there is no reason why you can't suit,...

...because there's so many teams, much ofa muchness about and one or two who are normally or key, may have to be carefulnext season, because if the hermits pen and the and the a line and the youngerplayers and the frinchman and they can get dried on her but a bone. So not icertain. I couldn't pick a talk to the ear, but i possibly see mes prom as atimus lately be up there and i don't bomb so as it depends on when he points tobe. Can you get done if they're going to be done? Points then they're goingto find it very very hard to avoid going down as the pin never ends whenin dust who was after them, after the name of the vengeance and there's abouta bully and going on which i do not like the look or but have to tell you, but it's happening and they've beenhounded and been chased and every single possible indiscretion is gettinga definitely pointing right. Arter and it's o o should be tisane in the pitch.Shouldn't, be decideand, come out your rooms and were penelty points, but i'mafraid that's just the and again just now- and i don't a mage too happy aboutthat yeah. It is difficult one that as it obviously, we've been through in ablack pool with it or with the owners, and i don't know we know how it feels,but fortunately, in that case never got a point o duction, despite the factthat the the owners through the towel in and got was relegated a few timesbut yeah. I know we got out of there and we win. Look. I don't know how wewere within strike condition to the championship with ma a an didn't manageto get back there within the first two years of a new ownership, so we'reliving at the moment and is really great back in the championship. Well,there's a good example of her club can bought him out and come back yeah. It can be done as long. You don't go.The league like michael feed, on very stuff up, if, if you do hit the bottom-and you know what you're doing when you're coming back up yourselves boughtin to a degree so far waging clearly to the get so far yeah, so no ye mean the drink. Put ely clean thedrains, if you like that was very, very painful but they've. Looked it foranother day and attain went ever be ale to struggling is probably as good ateam as in it be rebuilding when nobody else is get money for breaks. Yeah. As that, can you see no question toanswer, but can you see but all spending money between now and the endof the window and you think they're one of the clubs that could do it or ithink i think they'll spend relatively, not big mates? I think i think if youcould get gabriel, then get in bolton if you can etimes just going to be aloin as an ex sort about a million pounds, a million and ahalf two asn't asn't that much to ask- and it's probably more than many alight we spend if you're not going to sell any players, and that does a lot.I is going to happen. That's going to be a net loss and t spend will be ourlast, but i don't see any reason at all why thatcan't then be reflected. Then different...

...crowds keep the optimism going, maybehave a cup run pay for the self a little bit. I don't think the pianojust knows in it and skadi. That's for sure. It's not it's not a disaster.This pod or you have gone in and the guys at aft and aren't going to be insally money eier. So it's sensible, spend and there's rebuilding spending.As i see the wins, your brought, and just now so far a definitely at theyounger and of the scale and you're hoping that one of two and them willcome good. This season may be next season, and that is the better andmajor of the approach, and i think that's probably for the best just thingyou get kind of way in sturt tasting gleams will load it on it in eight minutesvery quickly. If you're not ready for it, yeah absolutely did you think of amoment. We've sorched on the fact that yeah probably a little bit to do in themarket, but you you see blackpool doing fairly well, this season beingcompetitive al you think it might be a struggle without one or two good place. We promoted ten to startquite well. So if you start well what you've got in the enthusiasm stillthere yeah, but i think i would have be attached to it knows that you need abit more. So if you can get basyng these guys and put tell if you'rebringing back people who know the club they're not going to have to adjust thenot they're not going to have to get in or the team mates, and but these guysalready. So if you bring it in trance for us lit now, i'm guys actually noweird other circumstances the stone in in order manager. You know the rules godites, because normally, if you'resaying a play, it takes a walton misseen. If you go and get gabriel, youget embon, nougat sims. You know the place that the meats of there and thatmakes lave so much easier. So those are the ones that think have toconcentrating and and you'll have to make a decision on the next week or two.I think, because if you're not getting them, you're gonna have to get somebodyelse, but the fact that you've not reallyseen any of us for those positions tells me. I still got to be hope on allthose three, but it will take that ll take some way to get it done and you'll know thatmaybe have to pay a little bit more than you want in some cases, but that's football. I think that's formore, because if you doing it might be a longer struggle and then your companyjoney and then you all have to spend, which is not something you want to do-is always about to spend when he were everything's label in a beset zeropoints. That's the team pan! You don't want to be going to eject turns forwindow and jone ef. You seen o wit minute. We need to get four to five andbecause then you make crazy decisions and you spend out too much money. Thisis the time to do it and if you need to talk pot, an janine, if you thinkyou've got turned to the top sins in january, then you go in, you may be,you know who's going to get us. There, we've gone to speak, but it's cole,twenty gals and half a season. Let's get someone down in a loan, let's takeup on fast one for the season. I remember you that last season tightsfor so badly it was unbelievable but come then come that janua window you!So you cleaned your head. You realize what you wanted. The way wi to luftigeno realize this. Is the league one...

...we're playing? Let's get the guys and,and it walk to treat and you short the diversion and there's must only beabout farm, and if you have the former, the eight team, let you don't you've seen the evidence, because youfinished comfortably the easiest at playoff onesof the sea, a black to us, you, black pool in the from a long we go somewherebecause he had a part on the play and had guys up for you could score goals.It believe the what they were doing and they had a way of playing, and so youtake so many bookes there you going to celebrate and chance now that is gettake an awful lot of repeatin. As i see a lets. No, it kind that way here whatthat is the method if you can get our mass of gun, while you get you whereyou're playing, which you have no phone and you add to it, you there eightplayers and, and then the window- and maybe you got a couple of flashman's injourney who knows agrees it's just it's a frustratingtime as a football fan in it because you got i got remember. It was sundayeven time ons out today. It feels like we're going through a slow patch of notmuch happening, whereas we probably be on the most active team in this window.As about, i think, many of the same more than i no, you know we go back to the old thing atthe onbearing last year. That's take the chunk at your team, like party orteams gone and so you've got it you're going to feel that again to be asstrong as you were when you came up because it's as a jump bop, it's not inconnate, but i as a jump up. So you need those guys, but i mean thefollows it brought in so far. It makes perfect sense to me. I lost a couple. The guys you brought in looks looks go,looks good, but the big bag part of us, the key part of us, is what the altonand that still as guys that din you a real time last year and bring in themback one the the not sally fees. As far as i'm aware, business can be done, so let's getcrack and let's get them in, and yet the grain running makes folle difference the worn so just just opinion down. Then so youknow not saying you know either way, but would you say what do you think igot the best chance of of happening again when you say gabriel's going backand bilton's back or tims or you know all three. Let's say what can you seehappening? What can you see may be a little bit more challenging you'll have to get the precedence,because it's about how i just now and a lot of the teams trying if you can getthat down, i don't think that's a woman any more. I think that it's never by in the next fortnight, a chance and buttons more strip for andif you want to buy them, some will not sell. They want some money. Son, alsohis contracts up tis summer they're, talking about maybe half a million off from three hundred plus exes, but were on the tangent. In short, i don't know so much of even with theplans or preseason i mean you've got a...

...new mileage and he might take a shameof the one for all. We know he makes sare well, what can we get for him? Canwe sell them somewhere? That's more, i know in but the firsttwo i would see an bots, the most straightforward. If you want to buy gabriel may come to your head and notsomebody else is turned by him at the moment. I think the line would rathercome ye yourselves, we'll see what happens without and that make justcomes a better game on what the praise is going to be. And then you getdesertion, because i, with all the pars having this as in the hoops to go elsewhere or because, then you could move on ye felt different helpin you so shesaid to me: i sat much t ten amberton just now: seven and a half gabriel six and a halfsams, no idea, o e h. All right i'll. Tell you that i'll telly! U h t i think i was, i think ambleton we sign him a replacement. All thingwere as attached to him, whereas i think dariel will be a sound of a goodwindow. You can bring him back and then obviously is no was really thinkingabout yet, but if he can come back, then it'll be a top signing, but we'llsee on that. We had definitely go also want share anything else out onyour mind or want to go through, or i think quick lie up in sleep. You by itdoesn't feel like a bit e houtos, just quite by ther's, been a bra andcomforter, because when we had that extended shesawn in the last season m,there was no. He must were the players and managers andcaught his wet, but all at these guys were out in in the country at everylevel, every level and couldn't do anything with a leap i meannone of us could. But you know these are guys, probably like a socialenjoying themselves occasionally and there's one thing that to go and i wasplay football and they found a break and i just caughtthat we don't have t any casual is at the start of the season, because therewas a terrible feeling about that. That will be cove out breaks and we'll belosing my ches and yeah. I don't think any of us can fish come back to that.To be quite honest with you, i mean we're all looking for this in crazygames. The fat was to be teaing for the promise, for any reason- and i don't know but the mental stay in thenation, but i think my in mental stay would be stretched. It's just that weneed to get back to normality, whatever that is and when we need. We need tofind it grounds and we need to get me bes five cause for all the say, butfootball for all has kept us going as a nation for the last sixteen months orso, and we should be grateful for the light greed we've got bristol city onthe open day and i've got a ticket for it and i won't believe it's happeninguntil it happens because there an game o call of today. So i'm going to beasking a thinking about me. I game because there's a danger he gets calledoff even the night before or the morning of, is and the unjust what lokiput a watch out for the coved out breaks as well now, so it's going to be like i elsa there's alot of way funds as well, so they...

...logally traveling with disappointment.Unfortunately, in some places, at least in the early polities- and you think so,hopefully that's kept on animal. Yes, fingoes titly crossed and all thatjust thing, because that is that's the biggest fear that enemy faces. Just now,is this kicking off again and we've, even with wathers ions, if not in termsof fatalities, be in terms of limiting the game of all love watching and theability to go and watch it because, as i say, if you think of the last sixteenmonths, how often do you stay and o watching in a football?
