Mr Black, a lass I work with also says "I aren't", which annoys the hell out of me as she has A Levels, including English, a degree in Accounting and Economics, and is a qualified accountant. It's not as if she's uneducated. Maybe it just proves that all she's good at is passing exams.

I had to correct her the other day for using a double negative "I haven't got no..." or summat like that.

pierrequiroule Posted on 06/08/2008 19:43
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

There was a thread about Villa putting a bid in for Young yesterday. Somebody (HertsRed?) said that Villa had put a bid in for 4 million last thursday, but didn't expand and didn't come back to the thread. There was lots of speculation about whether Young was unsettled or not - nobody seemed to know. If he is, then the club may have to at least think about selling him. Nobody thinks it's a good idea, and certainly not for 4 million - I thought the club would need to see an offer of 5 million before they'd even think about it.

Cheers Brick - just spotted the 'Homesick...' post - can't be arsed trawling for the original which was based on the Guardian article.

WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

Without wishing to jump on an unconfirmed rumour, and while recognising that alternative right backs are available, I do think that Luke Young should be up there with Stewart Downing and Afonso Alves on the Players Not To Sell list.

Unless he genuinely wants to go, in which case there's not much any club can do these days.

"i dont post much because i cant be arsd with the putdowns and lack of respect for other people on here."

Where did that come from Rozi ?

I for one would be devastated if we sold Luke Young.

Another 3 or 4 of his quality and temperament and we definitely would be top 6 material.

I'd seriously have to question the club's ambitions if this were true.

iv just been told more info - young will have a medical tomorra afternoon still the same 4million price he said. apparantly its got nothing to do with homesickness the sale is to fund 2 big transfers. thats all i know at the moment

"a season ticket holder home AND AWAY"??

if 4M is funding TWO big transfers, I need to change my rating of how optimistic I am for the upcoming season.

markw_21 Posted on 06/08/2008 21:14

Two big transfers on a budget of circa 8.5 - 9M, unlikely.

Lisburn remove your foot from your mouth.........quickly.

I for one, signed up for the MFC away "season ticket", 20 a match be it the likes of Wigan or Chelsea. Anyone who took up the offer has already saved 17 for the Liverpool game alone.

br14 Posted on 06/08/2008 22:31
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

We paid 2.5 million didn't we?

Couple of million or more profit on a 29 year old probably just looks too good to refuse. Plus he's probably on a decent salary.

Got to feel a bit sorry for Young though. If, as is stated, he lives in Harrogate, he'll have a lousy commute to Brum.

Jonny_Ingbar Posted on 06/08/2008 22:31
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

If this is true it's not actually bad business,

A 3.5m pound profit on a player who is a year older and replacing him with a Hoyte who must be 23 ish, seems to be sound judgement IMO.

Hoyte is just the type of player Southgate is looking to attract, young pacey and mobile.

Thats if its true of course, which I doubt.

bangkok_smoggie Posted on 07/08/2008 02:56
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

If this is true (and obviously strong doubts exist) then, despite Young being excellent last season, I'm not too concerned. I reckon McMahon could well prove the class he showed when he broke into the team and Seb Hines looks good too.

Hoyte: can't say I rate him what I've seen of him. MUCH rather have Eboue but we'd never get him - Wenger knows how good he is.

Brick_Tamland Posted on 07/08/2008 08:44
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

The management of MFC know what the fans will say ('lack of ambition', 'selling club)nd the fans will have ever reason to say that. I think that if Young moves we'll see two announcements on the offical site, once confirming two new signings with the second, shorter story confirming Young's departure. Counteract bad news with positives. We can't have another Ziege situation.

Nero Posted on 07/08/2008 08:47
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

Brick, the thing is, we still badly need midfielders. If Young goes, we'll also need a new right-back.

I really hope we're not counting on Hines and McMahon.

God knows what Southgate is playing at.

We might as well just cash in on Downing.

Brick_Tamland Posted on 07/08/2008 08:50
WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

We can still sign the midfielders that we need. I reckon we'll see Hoyte, Harper and a new midfielder arrive, maybe an unexpected foreign player as well. Young has been great and an absolute steal but if leaves let's not get carried away and think our season is in tatters.

WHY HAVE WE SOLD LUKE YOUNG???

Completely agree that there should be some major apologies from people who slagged the OP, despite not having a clue if it was true or not themselves.

Fair do's; ttteessider was right and I was wrong so my unreserved apologies to you, ttteessider (and to all others I would not believe last night) and I'm having custard with my humble pie.

In my defence I just could not believe that Boro would do anything so stupid as to sell Young. Bad business.

tttsider - apologies, you were right. As I have said on another post, my source (one of the best there is) said categorically no truth.

Just got up and read this , what a shocking decision. He was our best player last year bar Downing.
Downing wil be watching this after promises of top players coming in and thinking he will be off soon.

Unless we replace him with someone as good, then we're weakening the team. As a fan, that's the bottom line. If he's homesick, fair enough, but as he's just bought a house in Harrogate, that doesn't add up.

I think from MFC's point of view, it's purely a business decision. According to PP's conversation with Lamb, Villa are paying over the odds. No club will turn down silly money for a player if a competent replacement can be found. It's a bit of a gamble but it could pay off. Remember when Newcastle fans were up in arms when they sold Andy Cole? If I remember right, the team was stronger as the money received was invested in better players.

personally this sums up what has been a summer of clubs doing odd transfer dealings, robbie keane for 20 million is a example at age 28.

basically your club think cattermole is worth the same price as a far better england international player in luke young.

young for me is one of the most consistant and solid wing backs in the country hes not spetacular but he does his job very well.

boro selling him on so quickly is very odd

jmboro, the reason why tttessider got so much stick over this was a post a few months ago when he claimed he was talking to A.Johnson in Morrisons who told him he was leaving. It was clearly BS and he lost a lot of credibility.

Fair play though, he was spon on with this one.

5m for a player who cost us half that a season ago seems good business IMO, as long as we strengthen in this and other areas.

This is another example of why this board is going downhill.
A post from a Boro fan with what he thinks is inside knowledge gets slated for spelling and content.
I bet the numpties who slated him don,t apologise now that his Luke Young move proved to be true.
To many moaners on here just like the Riverside.
I still go there to watch my club but this board is S*** now

Ultimately a very bad piece of business, but credit to whoever told the board and apologies if I slated the messenger.... I just checked, I didnt.

But I think he also said Adam Johnson was signing for Villa at one point as well, after he had told him when he had bumped into him out shopping [:)]

I suppose thats a 50% success rate then

You're wrong there onthemap, as I was wrong in my 20:28 post on 6 Aug, because Hoyte is a good replacement when fit, and we made a bit of money on the whole deal.
