“Why the fuck are we selling Brayford?”
“Brayford is shit. League One at best”
“Russell spade has lost the plot selling Brayford who’s been 1 of our best players this season and replacing him with lee peltier “
“If Brayford/Le Fondre have to go then so be it theyve hardly set world alight have they? My worry is who Slade will replace them with! “
“We deserve to go bust if we sell John Brayford. He’s pretty much one of our top players right now”
“Brayford stay, Le Fondre go. Just my own views. Brayford is a worker and much valued at #CCFC”
“Peltier is poor but Brayford is hardly a world beater, wasteful In possession and gets lost when past the half way line. “
“Can we just sell Brayford to Sheffield United so their fans can stop stalking him, its unhealthy for them and I’m concerned “
“Brayford has been one of the few players we’ve been able to depend on this season. “
“We paid a couple of mill for Brayford and he’s playing well. Selling him in his prime for a quarter of that can’t make financial sense.”
“Well the Blades are in funds as a result of their cup run.
For me the question is would he want to go? Great cup run yes, but not so good in Div. 1 so could still be there next season. Okay so could we if the cup half empty guys are right but surely it would show greater ambition if he stayed with us. “
“Brayford going. Not a worry for me. He has not done it for me. “
“Most surprising aspect of this to me is how a division 1 side who is not in top 2 can or wants to pay 1.5 million for a right back. I’m sure even if their fans love brayford they must be curious about this as for that money they could get a decent striker who might push them towards top 2. Seems an odd one to me. “
“Brayford seems to be one of those players that runs hard, looks busy and involved, but lacks any real quality or composure. “
“I’ve been disappointed with Brayford, after the hype that he was the best full back in the division when at Derby. He has been no more than average. If the rumours are true that Sheff U have offered £1.5m he can go as far as I’m concerned. “
“Whether he is the best full-back in the league or not may be up for debate, but he is quality imo. “
“ Brayford is a competent full back, if he was the best in the league and we are prepared to sell, why is only a League 1 club bidding for him?
That says everything for me “
“Well he’s obviously going to go isn’t he. He has the choice of playing for a proper manager who appreciates him and whom he has played for before or Coco the Clown and Charlie Cairoli. Who would you choose. “
“Personally im really glad hes going and the fact that we are not losing on the transfer. Some of his defending has been laughable since returning. He doesnt want to stay at the club so lets get rid “
“You’ll get the beard you deserve. “
“I expected great things of him after the reviews he got whilst on loan last season.
But he has been poor to mediocre in what is a shocking team, so get rid and move on.
The fact that we get a fee is a REAL bonus! “
“I couldn’t understand these rumours at first because i didn’t believe Sheff Utd could find the money to make a bid. “
“Are they not owned by a Middle East consortium? I suppose that they still have to take FFP into account though! “
“Saving dosh in not paying Ched’s wages ?? “
“Get rid I say.
“Have to admit I’m not that bothered.
He bombs forward as if he is Cafu.
Wing backs like him are a dime a dozen. “
“I’m not sure what to make of this. We should never have loaned him to Sheffield United in the first place and then he’d never have developed this desire to play for them. He wants to leave though and if we can get £2m for him then even better. Sounds like it will be less. “
“If he wants to go we have to let him go, his heart is obviously there.
Anyway he could break his leg in his first game and Sheff Utd may miss out on promotion? At least he will be happy plying his trade in Div 1 “
“Slade says “he must want to leave otherwise why would he want to talk to them”. I am sorry sladey old boy but if I had to put up with your negative football and lack of motivation I too would walk to Sheffield to get away from him. “
“I don’t mind Le Fondre going. He supposed to score goals. But its a shame with Brayford.”
“Brayford is not only our most dependable full back, but he’s up there with the best full backs in the league. Accepting only 1.5 million for him is scandalous. He’s worth at least a million more. I’m surprised nobody else is bidding the 1.5 million as he will be a bargain for any club outside the Premiership for that price.”
“I think it’s a case of he wants to play more for the manager than the club itself.”
“I can only judge from what I have seen – not very much – and I am not impressed, I’m afraid. Earlier in the season he sometimes looked good going forward, but has not impressed me recently.
He may simply be pissed off with what the club is looking like for many of the players: unstable, apparently direction-less, ill-led, with an ‘unconventional’ owner, whose mum helps him make most of his very important business decisions – etc etc. ‘LET ME OUT OF HERE – I’M ACTUALLY SANE (NOT LIKE THE OTHERS). Please believe me.”
‘”Apparently we got close to two million for him. ”
John brayford you absolute cunt “
“unfollows John Brayford”
“He plays on the left he plays on the right that boy kav mcNaughton makes john brayford look shite”
“Will not miss Brayford in the slightest, not even half the player McNaughton was and shows no ambition whatsoever dropping a league.
“So it turns out that Brayford is a bit of a classless cunt then really”
“Atleast sheffield united fans now will stop hassling us over brayford.”
“Brayford gone, good. He didn’t care anyway.
“When is John Brayford‘s open-top bus tour of Sheffield? I’m pleased for him and for Sheffield United. They deserve him, Cardiff don’t.
“Bet Sheffield United fans are crying in happiness they have Brayford back. Obsessed.”
And who can forget this from back in July………………….
