Rumour Mill-Good Game, We Wanted Forsyth?

Rumour Mill-Good Game, We Wanted Forsyth?

According to Sky Sports, Watford have won the race to sign Dundee midfielder, 23 year old Craig Forsyth beating both Burnley and Crystal Palace.

Forsyth is believed to have agreed personal terms at Vicarage Road and will undergo a medical at the club later this week.

He signed for Dundee in the summer of 2006 and was given a one year contract extension with an option for a further year with the club in June 2008. During his time on Dundee's books, he has also been shipped out on loan to both Montrose and Arbroath in order to gain valuable playing experience.

The 6ft tall Carnoustie-born midfielder has attracted a lot of interest both north and south of the border after impressing at Dens Park over the last few seasons but it looks like the Hornets have now got their man.

Not quite sure why we would be going for a midfielder unless we had given up on McCann and Cork.

I would guess he was signing for Malky who is to be replaced by Laws which would mean the ink has not been used and I would guess is not going to be used either. Paper talk lol

Well if he was a target of ours it adds to the increasing anxiousness of Burnley fans,.... McCanns silence becomes more deafening by the day with him having had talks on Friday, this should have been a done deal by now the longer it goes on the more worrying it becomes, you either wanna play for the club or you don't and quite honestly its looking like he's continuing to hawk himself about. Why after three months have we not been able to convince a single player to join us ?? again you have to look at the re-enumeration on offer just what is going on ?

LET reporting that the Cork deal is falling down because burnley cant meet Chelsea's asking price ............... Although Southampton have, Cork seems reluctant for a move to the south coast .... this AGAIN points to what I have been ranting about for the last 3 months!! why cant we secure this sort of deal its about money and our "constrained" finances ....... it's unbloody believable and demonstrates in all its glory the absolute lack of ambition this club demonstrates day after day ..... Im telling you its time for Kilby and Co to go !!!

As I have previously posted in the forums on this site... Some of us have been trying to set what's going on in a wider picture. This picture has included: a fairly detailed anaysis in an earlier front-page VB thread of the fabled £60million and of the promotion-securing Flood investment that then had to be paid back after the greedy bankers crashed; news of the reduction in TV money in future seasons (due to austerity at the BBC) for the FL that is having an impact on contracts now; news of the decision in principle amongst Championship clubs to live within their means; news of the commitment amongst clubs in L1 and L2 to do that; and thoughts on how all of that is causing an attempt by clubs to put player salary inflation into reverse... and is causing the transfer market to be very quiet just about everywhere at the moment (as you can see on the BBCwww if you click around long enough). So agents, worried about their own declining income, are linking every player with everyone to make it look as though they're doing something, and advising players to be patient in the hope the clubs will spend more. Short of any real news, newspapers are blowing tiny stories leaked by agents into big deals, with the agents doing that in hope that it will make fans shout at clubs to get them to spend more and spend it now. But clubs are telling fans to be patient in the hope that by waiting we'll get the players we want for less money. And in this giant game of poker some fans are being patient, and some aren't, which is human nature.
