Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

How paranoid are we that we believe our owner is bidding for a player because he knows he will say no :lol: Come on now, do we really think Pellegrini will stand for that?

We need to sign some proper midfielders, and invest in what is a crucial position.
We also need to sign a CF (imho), and I'm willing to bet at least one of us is going to be disappointed :)

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

If we sign Maripan, maybe we can play 3 at the back (Rocky,Diop,Maripan)? Or push Diop forward as a
