Under transfer embargo against by the looks of things?

Not sure if this is just for the FA Cup game or if extends into January?

Bit confused to be honest. It mentions that the PFA bailed us out for wages but I thought that didn't happen as there was some other winding up petition still outstanding  so they refused to help?

What I imagine happened went something like this -

KA missed Nov payment date to players

Players reps meets with Ken and reach an agreement on pay

Players rep then says better they go to PFA for them to get involved

PFA meet KA and agree to help pay wages

PFA find outstanding Winding up petition and pulls out of the offer.

KA announces he will pay the wages out of his own pocket.

Presumably Winding up petition was only a procedural oversight (KA had said previously it had been dealt with) and now closed and PFA return to offer to pay the wages.

KA accepts - Nov wages now paid.

December wages now on the horizon.

ITK rumours appear on Twitter that KA has cashed in early some of the Sky money due this month (Jan19) to pay them - at 'eye watering interest rates'!

December wages paid.

Iles reports that apparently PFA not been reimbursed for helping with Nov and Dec wages.

I'm guessing KA WAS intending to pay Nov wages out of his own pocket and Dec with the advance from the Sky money at 'eye watering interest rates. but decided to hold fire if the PFA was paying them instead.  I'm guessing further that the PFA would then be paid back from the Sky money and thus save the 'eye watering interest rates' he would have to had paid otherwise.

Wheels come off with player embargo being issued until PFA and any other football creditors being paid (FGR perhaps?)

Possible outcome KA delays payment for a fortnight or so until Sky money comes through, everybody paid, no 'eye watering interest rates' to be paid, the three players miss a meaningless cup game and Bristol City away and everything is back on track again - and transfer window still open for last minute £6 million sale of one of our players to Cardiff.

If I'm right in my summary then is it really the crime of the century that KA didn't go on prime time TV to tell the whole world that he changed his plans to pay the wages himself when the PFA said that they would be happy to do it now the obstacle of the old Winding up petition had been sorted?

and sluffy, is the date for monies really the 19th?

To answer both your questions - I don't know!

However for your first I would have suspect Iles wouldn't be shy in telling us all if PP and his staff had still not been paid - so I suspect they have, and for the second, Iles in a tweet to Smurf, said the "league money is the 16th - but that isn't official", so yes it probably is on or around the 19th.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Probably not the 19th as that is not a banking day (even if bans are open).

Ah! When I wrote (Jan19) above I was referring to the month 'January 2019' and not the date.  Sorry if I confused people with that.

All I am aware about was Iles mentioning the 16th Jan as posted above.

Apologies.

Saw one of their fans mention this yesterday on Twitter and thought surely not. 

Big fat Billy might want a quiet word

Chelsea have knocked back a bid of 20m for an 18 year old called Hudson-Odoi saying they want 40m.

Lads made 3 league appearances all as a late substitute.

World's fucked.

He's so good that they didn't loan him out as they did see him being worth a place in their own squad.

His international performances in u17/u18 have been outstanding.

Incidentally Chelsea got knocked out of the FA Youth Cup in their opening match (which was at OT), ending their 5 season grip on the trophy.

Having beaten Newcastle, BWFC are at Crystal Palace on the 18th.

Matthews back to Norwich 

clearly can’t afford the deal. Expect the same with Doidge?.. 

That crossed my mind but apparently Forest green owner Dale Vince is relaxed about the deal and will give us time to sort it.

Dingles paid 7m for the striker from NF & they still slag off the chicken farmers perhaps we should poach the fuckers!

Surely they'd need to be egg farmers for that to happen.
