The Football League doesn't make sense most of the time... So what's new? We can't register players but it doesn't stop other teams registering players but the fact Cox has moved on is a signal to me that something is imminent.

Di Canio, get the numbers ready on speed dial! Try and hijack the Green deal again!

Today is the the first day of the loan window re-opening - which is why Plymouth could sign him
.
The reason we can't sign players is our ownership and therefore, future is not clear - to avoid potential debt etc to other clubs or mucking about players futures they have said no to incomings until this is resolved
.
Selling is totally different and not sure why people can't see that!
.
If you have money trouble the bank won't let you borrow more - but no one will prevent you selling stuff to use that cash to pay off your debts
.
Oh look - the FL won't let us increase our wage bill - but are happy for us to sell / loan players out to reduce it
.
why - pretty **** obvious!!!!

Know that shouldn't cheer me up but... :-)

Good move for Cox, was never going to get a game here and we never saw the best of him. Hopefully can do well for Plymouth.

Can understand this one it makes sense our wage bill comes down for a start and as to getting loan players this cannot be done until the new owners are approved.
It may seem crazy yet I do think it´s correct.
Just hope all is sorted out asap.
Will be interesting if Rooney goes to Cheltenhan to-day?????

The FA and FL have long been criticised for their lack of due dilligence when it comes to the fit and competent persons test. Perhaps they are finally doing it properly?

Notwithstanding, preventing a club not in administration from signing players during the transition of ownership seems ridiculous when Portsmouth, who have been in administration for over a year, are allowed to ship players in and out on an almost daily basis, which seems ludicrous what with their predicament. (Not having a go at Pompey - just using them as a case in point).

As I explained on another thread, the Administrators run a business on tickover whilst a solution (hopefully buyer) is found. They have many legal obligations, not least to the creditors. That is why they are allowed to trade.

If Administrators were't allowed to run the business on an ongoing basis - in football and in the wider world - there would be no point in Administration, the business would simply be wound up instead.

That is all a bit of a burger really!..we could be losing 2 or 3 of the loanees on those grounds....I'd hope that Pack will still come in exchange for Rooney but the other two could be pinched away from us - that'll be a right Royal pain in the backside.

It is a ridiculous article. They trumpet Howe (and he has done well in a short space of time at bormuff to be fair) but totally ignore that for a good chunk of the first half of the season, his performance at burnley has him towards the bottom!

So does that mean they will let us sign the new players ?
Not until it's finalised bud.
I thought the " emergency" loan window was only open for today ?
Until end of March I think , dont quote me!

Loan Window is open until old transfer deadline day which is 3rd week of March I think
.
With no MK game it won't matter too much about loanees not coming until next week as they will still have about a week prep time / get up to PdC fitness time
.
Takeover and new players could be more of a boost for Tranmere than Hartlepool anyway

But for it to really mean anything, I think it needs to be put into some perpective. I think it should be judged on at least 15/20 games.

If a manager was in charge of just one game and won, he would then be top of the table.
It is a ridiculous article. They trumpet Howe (and he has done well in a short space of time at bormuff to be fair) but totally ignore that for a good chunk of the first half of the season, his performance at burnley has him towards the bottom!

It's looking at form and form is recent. Howe has great form and 18 games (in the 15-18 bracket you say is needed). It clearly states its looking at each managerial appointment so that is the criteria. I'm sure most people are intelligent enough to realise that if a manager has had 3 games then perhaps it's not not as great an achievement averaging the same as someone with 30. There is no prize for the winner, it is just based on data. It clearly shows Howe's spell at Burnley was not successful.

LMA did one recently and PdC was 3rd in that table ahead of SAF
.
Anyway - think everyone knows PdC is top as we were the top football league team in 2012 with 92 points
.
2013 hasn't gone to badly either - P7 W4 D3 L0 F14 A2 PTS15 (or 2.14 PPG)

I can't see the point in these comparisons. To have any real meaning, they would need some sort of weighting to allow for the different circumstances in which managers work, and that would be almost impossible to measure. The fact that the same few clubs always occupy the top positions in the Premier League speaks volumes.

its important we get these 3 loan players in as soon as the takeover is completed. If we dont get danny green then we'll for sure need to look for another decent winger on loan as we've only 2 now ritchie and rooney have gone.

I also think it would be wise to get a better back up goalkeeper in before loan windows shuts just in case something happens to sir fod.

I see you can get 5's on us winning the league still which is pretty good.
bournemouth now odds on to win the league with the bookies
