More crazy money being thrown about, Walker to Man City for £50m is just crazy.....then you see Sunderland signing McGeady, who in fairness should do well again at that level and James Vaughan, who isn't going to help them!

On the Newport front, I am concerned we've not signed any more players yet, we probably still need 4 or 5, we need at least 2 defenders, a central midfielder and a striker...maybe Flynny will play the loan market.

Ike Ugbo on a season long loan (until he bangs them in, gets called back and sent to a bigger club like Izzy Brown sent back from Rotherham to Huddersfield) is a good one with a lot of their fans online saying he's better than Abraham, Solanke and Loftus Cheek.

You need 2 for each position so now we need two strikers (hopefully loan Ashley Fletcher for one), a winger, a left back and we should be ready to go.

Can always use the loan market to the end of August if needs must.

Championship clubs do make most of the U23 squads from Premiership teams and put them to good use.

Ike Ugbo scored two good goals at Rochdale the other night, from what I could see on the You Tube video footage.

We still need another winger and a couple of strikers and time is running out with only Rotherham away on saturday before the season starts.

Would have liked Ashley Fletcher back on loan but apparently he's worth seven million quid Shocked

After losing 4-0 to four second half goals to lower league Rotherham United at the weekend, in front of 1,500 away fans at a friendly, Hecky was outspoken and many of our fans wonder he might get shut of for being so outspoken towards the board.

He wanted 4-5 gained two but lost Roberts to Birmingham so we still need 4-5 and we now have no pre season friendlies to give them game time because the board are dithering with bringing in transfer targets.

Hopefully it will be a busy week and apparently French media are reporting we are interested in a Senegal striker at Djion for a million.

I'm expecting the worst again as we still haven't really got a proven goalscorer in the squad. I don't think we'll struggle as badly as we did last season but it'll be close again at this rate....though Lemar Reynolds who came through Vardy's academy looks splendid.

Neymar fee is obscene. It could cost over 5 years around half a billion, which is more than Tottenham are paying to get a brand new stadium that's going to last them for years.

Over half a million a week AFTER TAX and his dad getting thirty odd million as a loyalty payment, it's crazy.

It is though quite funny that Spanish clubs put in massive release clauses thinking nobody will ever dare to match it and then end up whinging when they do.

Yeah taking UEFA & FIFA over FFP.....meanwhile Man City have spent over £200m themselves without a hint of someone bitching about FFP.

PSG will no doubt need to sell a couple of players once this deal is done, but i'm sure they'll have no issue in doing that.
