Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Do we have any realistic chance of signing Schick, feels like another move from the chairman for an unrealistic signing..... Leverkusen have always been quite transactional. Don't necessarily sell cheap, but if you meet their price they tend to let their players go. There may be some measure of pri...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Is Schick going to be able to replicate what Antonio does for us? Does he need to replicate it? Antonio is still here so we aren't losing anything we don't already have, but might get something we don't have. Swiss Army Knife approach. A target man might be fairly handy at times given Antonio's mor...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Milldy unenthusiastic about attempting to sign Hlozek this window. Isn't currently a striker – appears to play mainly play behind the striker, or wide when he's not – so promising or not it does feel like losing sight of the main issues if we do this winter. It's not like we're going to be out of th...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Apparently they have put a huge bid in for Patrik Schick upwards of 40 mill Probably b*llocks as this is the dildo brothers, but this comes from the bloke who told me they had signed Jarrod Bowen way before the press picked it up. This is also probably already on here but i can't be arsed to look a...

The time between the sinking of the Titanic and the release of The Beatles’ Revolver was smaller than the gap between the release of The Beatles’ Revolver and the present day.

Thank you for making me feel incredibly old
The striker we brought off the bench against Leeds was 4 years old when Sears made the same journey from the bench against Blackburn.

Two for your man Carvalho tonight against Birmingham.

And 32 (!) year old Freddie Sears with a goal for Colchester.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

We could sign Hlozek, Carvalho and Buchanan tomorrow and none would play in our only remaining premier league match of the window. People would be happy but it would make no difference to waiting a week It's funny, I'd actually find that a really annoying window if we signed those three. Not becaus...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

The really strange thing is that all the 'my hairdresser told me' or rumours that involve sightings of moving vans arriving to gated houses near Romford have disappeared too. Which given they were based entirely on bull**** in the first place doesn't make sense that they've dried up in parallel with...

Re: Is now a good time for the season to be suspended?

Leicester have 11 first-teamers unavailable for their game against Spurs.

Hope it gets called off, for multiple reasons. But mainly because given it’s already anarchy, the best we can hope for now is a truly ludicrous fixture pile up for Tottenham from now until May.

Mistake, he sold Roberto (end of loan), good spot.
Not that I wouldn’t have enjoyed seeing the Highland Goebbels swing into action to defend what a great signing he was by Moyes.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

The one positive of Diop’s cratering form is it makes it very, very funny that Sullivan ran straight to his client journalists and loudly and categorically claimed he forced the signing through over the objections of others back when he was looking promising. A companion piece to his pinning Arnauto...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Appears to be wildly mixed opinions on Szalai from Turkish Lig fans. A lot think he’s great, but a noticeable number seem to believe he’s not even Fenerbahce’s best CB. Think the gist is he’s not playing quite as well this season as last?

That Fornals goal deserved a far better fate than to be lost amidst the attempts to forget this game. Brought to mind the final third of Payet's Boro goal.

How good is Raphinha? The thing that separates him from other similar players is he seems to routinely make the right decisions.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Yet over the 12 months before he signed he was linked by various outlets consistently and he was pretty much a “must buy” on here. Shows the problems of actually signing the right player and the time it might take. 12 months beforehand maybe. By the time we signed him I think it was just Moyes who ...
