    He'll go on loan if Spurs or WHU come in.

    Unless they've spoken directly to him or his agent how can it be anything other than speculation. Brentford have always had 2 options for this window, KLP and Brennan Johnson. They've been priced out of BJ hence the bids for KLP. Whether KLP has asked his agent to try and get the move is another thing. Brentford were always going to bid for him if they couldn't get BJ.

    They always speak to agents before formal bids come in. Sometimes agents acting on behalf of the selling club too.

    Last few days of the window then KLP, the club and the agents will know the potential 'score' .

    Looks like £14m or £15m is the asking price.

    I think (but don't 'know') a couple mil could be negotiable based on a loan-back.

    But then the thread title says 'rumours'.

    Maybe some should start their own thread called 'Transfer Facts' which would be very boring but might just satiate their need for the attention they seek instead of coming on here and provoking **** for the sake of it.

    So Howdentiger is lying then?
    He said KLP wants a move.

    Anyway, I'm off to bed.

    He might want the move, Bowen probably wanted one earlier, doesn't mean he'll push for one. Like Bowen didn't in his 3 seasons. Any footballer presented with the opportunity to play at a higher level on more money is going to want to make that move. But if he doesn't push for it the chances of him leaving are slim.

    All the squad really liked Grant, been told that by one of the 23s, so Shota will have to make a good impression or I imagine a few more club favourite's will be out the door.

    That was the risk of sacking Grant following the last dozen games.

    But how much of that was players knowing the takeover was coming and how much was Grant?

    We knew Shota was coming in since Wilder (who'd scouted us for Illiclli and was in contact...) went to the smoggies.

    Grant and the squad knew that too of we did.

    'We' might have known but that's still not something the players would have known with certainty or listened to.

    You don't think players don't know stuff before blokes with tenuous connections on a ****ing message board?

    *edit. Missed a ****ing apostrophe.

    Considering Honeyman as recently as last week was urging Acun not to sack Grant, reckon at the very least they didn't think it was a certainty.

    There lies the question.

    He never got anything less than 100% out of the players that's for sure, we'll see what the team looks like on Saturday. If KLP doesn't start we can assume he's gone. Shota is a top coach, whether it can translate to management in England is another thing. Better players coming in soon, he's probably always known he's going to start under Grant, as a lot of other players have even if they are not performing well, Magennis, Wilks, Coyle, Elder off the top of my head. That safety net a lot of them had is now gone and we'll see what they're truly about.

    The lads were told by Grant on the Tuesday at training before Blackburn after a phone call with Ehab to give him one last big effort as his future was all but confirmed. So they've all known for the best part of 2 weeks.

    Wouldn't currently say he is a 'top coach'.

    Would say he has a more promising CV upon taking the job than any 'recent' City manager other than Bruce. Arguably Silva, Slutsky or Taylor. Arguably.

    More UEFA comp experience than anyone.

    Let's get behind the lad

    Silva and Slutsky had CL experience, I wouldn't say Shota is better than either of them by a longshot.

    Treating coach differently to a manager, he is very good at developing players. He often is invited to clubs for coaching sessions...
