My local rag will report tomorrow that former U (and willy-waver) Gavin Whyte will take a loan move to Hull City after struggling to get into the Cardiff City side since Neil Harris took over from Neil Warnock.
Maybe this means Hull will lose interest in Nathan Holland, boosting the chances of him coming back to us??

I see Rob Cundy has been moved by Bristol City from Cambridge to Gillingham and he made his debut in their big win last night.

Ian Lenagan denies he is selling Wigan Warriors.
https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/rugby- ... rs-3127235

didn't know this... quote from IL
"It is well known that Mike Danson and Darryl Eales are shareholders in Lenagan Investments, the company which controls ownership of Wigan. This is a very strong position for Wigan Rugby League Club Ltd and its supporters. There are no current plans for the Lenagan family to relinquish control of Lenagan Investments and, hence, Wigan Warriors.”

I remember talking to Kelvin Thomas about players and their agents. He told me that Ben Purkiss didn’t have one because and I quote ‘He’s a clever fucker’.

Was he our player of that era who took a break from qualifying as a solicitor or some other professional qualification to play football?

Think he's the one - interesting recent history though based on the below from Wikipedia. :shock:

Chairmanship of PFA
Purkiss was elected as chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) in November 2017, succeeding Ritchie Humphreys, after a five-year spell on the management committee. He called for an independent review into the PFA and criticized numerous decisions made by the leadership, including a perceived lack of support and research into mental health issues and dementia. CEO Gordon Taylor was reported to have attempted to disbar Purkiss as chairman as he was not a contracted player at Walsall. In March 2019, it was reported that he was forced to stand down after the completion of a "full and open review" into the PFA's finances was presented at its 2019 AGM, along with its chief executive officer, Gordon Taylor and the PFA's entire management committee. However, by January 2020 both men were still in their posts, with the review still ongoing.
