Fox Becomes a Saint!-Mega Debate Continues!

Fox Becomes a Saint!-Mega Debate Continues!

Danny Fox has been sold to Southampton for it is believed about £1.8 million

Does anybody seriously believe now we have any chance of promotion? This pathetic club of ours never ceases to amaze me and surely, surely now all Clarets will begin to smell the coffee.

I am not going to write anything more on this until I have cooled down and if anybody suggests this is a 'good bit of business' I will explode!

Do you believe we can hold onto Jay Rod?

Editor's Update: Well since I posted my emotional article above the two camps have been going tooth and nail discussing the pros and cons of the Fox transfer and the general situation at the club beneath. We have now got well over 100 posts on this thread alone and we have achieved a Vital Burnley record. You can certainly not accuse Clarets fans of lacking passion! Keep the debate going chaps and chappesses, I have stickied the Article before it drops off the end!

This club seriously must be in dire financial straits, it is certainly clear they can't compete on salaries in this division and that is only going to get worse. Utterly peed off! We are becoming a total laughing stock. Cue the' oh well we still have Easton, things aint too bad!' brigade. Yeah right!

What's going on here? Everything seems to point towards the fact that we're in trouble financially ?? I'm hoping J Rod is going nowhere, but I've got no idea what's going on anymore. If he does go, thats us clearly up to our necks in it and going nowhere fast.

They make me sick the lot of them, GC. 'We don't have to sell' they tell us but they do. Cork and Fox to a club in administration a few seasons ago. Totally & utterly disgraceful!

Gutted... The only positive thing I can think of regarding this, is that Howe will now have a new defence. Guess it is a matter of time before Jay will be sold - january?

Don't understand this one think Kilby and the board are taking the ***** now and if its against Eddie's wishes i think EH could be the next to walk.

Disappointing yet again, the only positive is that Jay hasn't gone, and i hope its not a yet..., Fox has had his good and bad moments but I've felt he's really improved his game recently, particularly his passing. So it is another loss, surely now the board must spend some of the 4.5 mill (at least - 2.75 for Mears Eagles, and the 1.8 for Fox) on strengthening our weakened squad, the Poster received in the Burton program shows how much our squad has shrunk since last year!! I know we need quality not Quantity but we're spreading thin now, the signings that EH has made so far have been shown to be good ones, so I'm optimistically thinking he'll bring in more quality players. But again I don't think we really needed to sell Fox, but it seems the board can't resist a half decent offer for anyone at the moment!
