Ryan Woods 12:23 - Jul 31 with 79332 viewsMagic_Michu

Brentford’s local newspaper saying we’re in talks with the club over Ryan Woods. He’d be a superb signing for centre mid in my opinion.

Can you imagine him and Clucas in the centre of midfield tho!? Ginger central! 😂

Nicknamed ‘the Ginger Pirlo’ ... ‘Possessing an extensive passing range, gifting him his Pirlo nickname, Woods is constantly looking to dictate the game’s tempo.’

‘But the 24-year-old is more than just a cultured footballer. He has a steeliness that sees him dominate the middle of the park and endears him to fans.

Vocal throughout a game, Woods carries leadership qualities out on the pitch and possesses a clear vision of what he expects from his team-mates, making him the archetypal ‘captain without the armband’.

With the ability to both drive forward with the ball and battle for possession, it’s this dynamism that makes him the lynchpin of Smith’s side.

Woods’ all-round game also lends itself to versatility, too, having played in both full-back positions, as well as out wide on occasion.’

Given that Woods would have cost about the same as we received for Clucas, what if Clucas had decided to stay? We couldn't have forced him out. Does that mean we couldn't afford for him to stay?


I would bet that we still owe Hull more for Clucas than we have just sold him for. That sums up the mismanagement of the club.

Any Trust board able to comment on the situation? Surely our finances are being monitored.Time to let the average supporters know the state of play.

Possibly. At the very least we will be taking a huge hit on having to realise losses on amortised fees for at least clucas. This may explain why it makes some sense to loan out some of these players.

Add to that the possible credit lines extended on the original “asset” values and this squeeze may start to make sense.

We”ll find out next year

Let’s hope that both Ayew have great seasons, bang in a shed load of goals which generates a great deal of interest in them resulting in their market value increasing.


Nah, we've probably negotiated rock bottom fees where they can make the move permanent. It's what we do. And then we wonder why there's no money

I'm so angry at the moment that I was tempted not to write at all, but........

The Yanks need to take the blame as they obviously are either not willing or able to put any money in to help us mount any sort of challenge to go back up.

I understand the Clucas issue which delayed doing a deal for Woods but this is when the owners are tested and they failed. The manager needed backing and instead of being backed, he's got one centre half, one DM and one rookie striker. It's absolutely shocking. I also understand that books need to be balanced, but what happened to 'speculate to accumulate' or simply backing the new manager's skills and beliefs? The Yanks have failed dismally so far, especially after so many empty words regarding the financial resources that they claimed to have.

My only morsel of hope left is that the loan window is still open so I will say my prayers to the football Gods tonight in the hope we pick up 3 points at the weekend and that our club have some good loan signings lined up. Fulham relied on 6 loan players last season and that went well for them, didn't it?

I don't feel we're that far from a decent enough team, but we can't rely on what we have at the moment. We look like a right mess but it COULD turn around quickly! Here's hoping......and praying!


Wasn’t improving the cash flow/borrowing situation the main reason HJ gave for selling up? How’s that working out pal?

Either it was all a stitch up by buyers and sellers to make a ton of cash at SCFC’s expense, or both buyers and sellers were/are lying to each other. Result being, the Yanks have bought a pig in a poke, and we are left with shyte owners with no money to invest!

A complete disaster for SCFC any way you look at it! What a shambles!

We went from expecting ~£10m for Ayew to getting maybe £1-2m as a loan fee. Clucas went from £8m to reportedly £6m. Fede's asking price dropped as Newcastle weren't going to spend £10m.

We made a lot less in sales than we assumed at the beginning of the summer.

We needed the Ayew deal to go through before we could get the funds to pay it, and unfortunately the bus left before the deal was complete

Not sure I believe/understand that - I can accept that we wouldn't budge from our valuation (presume that was the reported £6M offer), whether that was because we couldn't afford another £500K or for other reasons.......but we clearly offered & knew we'd have to agree personal terms with Woods if accepted.

Now we have exited pretty much all of our higher earners (Bony aside) we clearly must have some fee/wages flexibility - otherwise it was a worthless exercise in talking to Brentford in the first place.

Not saying we'll go back in for him but won't accept we cannot afford him in wages/loan fee terms - in fact I suspect we'll try the Watford approach of using the loan market strongly on a lower risk perspective.

But..wouldn't we still go for him on loan? With a permanent deal for winter? That's the only thing that's stopping people from imploding.

Yes we would not have had the diabolical window yesterday if it were not for the loan system.
Everything should close the same time loans and permanent deals.

I'm sorry but I don't see how this can be described as not the fault of the powers that be.

Woods would have been an investment and waiting til you sold Clucas was always gonna end in tears.

You should have bought him a week or two and Potter would have had his "number one" target, the fan base would have been appeased and you would have had a chance of making the play offs with a couple of decent loans.

Now the good feeling created last week has gone, you enter the loan market in desperation and other clubs will know that, not to mention the players you're trying to loan!

Not sure I agree with this policy of "just pay whatever they want, mun" when we started the summer staring at a loss of >£50m without major cutbacks.

Brentford and Woods knew they had three more weeks to maneuver and could play hardball on deadline day.

It's implying it was the player's choice, not either club. Therefor a loan would likely be out of the question.

That sh!t stirring Stuart James prick could do with silencing, as could Nixon, the pair of pricks.
