    I'm not expecting him to b here any money we get is a bonus it's a hell of a hit to take but freeing wages is key,if he did stay he could help do a job but as I say I'll be surprised if he's still here

    I must have a magic rear end then because I've been spot on about Brayford in every way right from the start.

    We'll see just how good and how valuable he is by the clubs interested in signing him and what we get for him.

    He's suffered serious injuries since we signed, him, isn't as fit and is older. Please don't claim that what we may get now for him is comparable to when we signed him. That's real desperation stakes.

    I presume you said from the start he was a class act and a talisman for both the team and the fans if you were spot on from the beginning?

    I said we'll see how good and valuable he is, not was. I was responding to comments about his current ability.

    Considering age, injuries, fitness, contract etc, if we got something like 500k from a decent Championship side for him now that would suggest he's still rated and I'd be wrong. But I don't think we'll get half that.

    I rated him during the loan spell, as did everyone, but from what I saw of him for Cardiff after that he didn't seem like the same player, and I was strongly against spending what we did on him, and I would've been even if he did look the same. After signing he was underwhelming and then the injury killed off any chances of him regaining his loan form.

    Oh dear Herbie facts are not your strong point,Brayford was signed by Cardif,when they were in the Premiership,and still wanted by them when he left,During his time here,he was instrumental in finishing the season on a high 7th in the league and a F-A cup semi final at Wembley. The following season he was a big part of League cup run ending on a high against Spurs in a memorable semi final.
    And fate played a cruel blow,when he got injured in the first leg of the playoff semi final,for the player and Sheff Utd.
    Money generated during the cup runs,more than covered his transfer fee,And the quote from Jim Phelps.This is not a fullback it is John Brayford.In his time at Utd,he has been under 3 managers,and to keep him from playing is the problem,
    Brayford is a honest player,and through his injury nightmare,it is good to see Freeman come good.

    Bit like this bloke. After missing one in the World Cup, it took serious balls to have a go at this. I remember that sinking feeling as he walked up to place the ball, and the shivers down the spine when he smacked it in and all that hurt came rushing out of him. Yes, Stuart Pierce has balls.

    No you haven't, you got it wrong, just like you did Woolford. You said Beard was shyte, which he isn't, and almost winning Burtons POY award proves it. Given his injuries we obviously wont get what we paid for him, Stevie bleedin Wonder could have told you that. Stick to football manager and talking out yer arse.

    No, I'm afraid you're the one who can't get your facts right.

    Brayford didn't play a single game in that League Cup run. He was playing for Cardiff in the Championship.

    What's your excuse? You should have followed Brayford more closely than me.

    HAD. I distinctly remember seeing them hiding behind a seat on Row C of the South Stand after "That" tackle from Bradders.

    Find me a post where I said he's sh1te full stop then sweetheart. Playing out of his skin for the only man he'll play for doesn't prove a great deal to be honest. As I said, we'll see how good he is now when we see who's interested in signing him.

    If I've got it wrong with Brayford then Wilder has too. Although I'm sure you'd try to spin that the other way.
