Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

It's the agent's involvement that is now beginning to worry me. They sound like they may just be a corporate version of Arnie's brother. In 2 years time we could be faced with them pressuring him to move and the agent's deciding where he goes and how much for. We could lose megabucks again.

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Worried now that with Benitez having already got a job in China he might want Rondon to follow him there? With it looking as if Gomez prefers Valencia our options may be closing fast?

Re: Payet? [POLL]

It's a massive no from me. Yes he was brilliant for us the first season but he is now 3 years older, less fit, more injury prone and still susceptible to the sulks. Given he would no longer be the star man that could quickly raise its head again. So I would be against on those grounds alone. But ref...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

I, for one, wouldn't mind Origi especially at that price. He's a good finisher and also puts in a shift. Ideal replacement for Hernandez. Good age as well. Get in him, Gomez, Sanson and Maripan and sell Hernandez, Obiang, Ogbonna and those out on loan last season and our squad would be dramatically ...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Bottom line is that very few (and I am talking one or two) clubs WORLDWIDE can just say to a player we are not selling you. Players are too powerful nowadays and can force a move away. The very best we could do is say to Diop give us another season and next summer if we get an offer from a club qual...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

I'd love a striker too but I am not sure we could afford one now that I would want. TBH Mitrovic or Rondon don't really appeal and another 12 months on Silva might havec developed where we wouldn't need to buy a replacement for+Chico/Perez.

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

So, and I'm playing fantasy football here, we get in Vorm Clyne 10m Marzipan 15m Strootman (loan) And Ceballos (30m) and keep Arnie, Chico and Perez. would you be happy with a team of Fabianski Clyne Diop Balbuena Masuaku/Cresswell Strootman Ceballos Rice Anderson Arnie Yarmolenko/Antonio I for one ...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

I make Ding and Cuellar spot on. We concede more because a) Rice has no one helping him AND b) our lack of pace in mf means when our attacks break down we are out run and mf cannot get back to help. This exposes our full backs and defence. To me top priority is a good defending mf and a good AND qui...

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

If we can get Schurrle on the remainder of his loan at 40k per week I would take him over Nasri, have a younger, fitter player and save 30k p.w. I don't know why he didn't perform to his best at Fulham but he is quality and is surely a better option?

Re: Transfer news and rumours

Just throwing a name out there to replace Adrian.... Betinneli from Fulham. Honestly don't know much about him but he is the right age, won't mind being 2nd fiddle and was very highly thought of this time last year. Honestly don't know if he is good enough though. For midfield I would put Milivojevi...

Re: In The Name of God.....Go

Faded. Well said sir. We need the full 3 years of Pelle to reaffirm our identity. It cannot be done in just one season. Equally though that identity should involve investing in youth rather than OAPs.

He's a London lad so if we want him we surely should be in with a chance.

Re: Jan Transfer Window 18/19

If Clyne is available in January we should go for him. Might have to be loan with a clause to buy.

Re: Jack Wilshere

What concerns me more is why did we wait until after the international break for him to have the Op? Wasted 2 weeks there. We always seem to put off ops and lose players for longer as a result.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 17 days remaining

Seem to remember it was between Pedro and Kante 3 years ago and we opted for Pedro. Good decision that!

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 30 days remaining

20 correct me if I am wrong but I think at the time the choice was between Obiang and Kante as squad filers with potential. We do make some wrong decisions sometimes! This summer looking better though.
