Haha...that actually made me laugh out loud!

Embarrass us? He just spent £12m on Leicester's THIRD choice left-back, £14m on van Aanholt and tried to give Liverpool a profit on a defender that they paid £18m for and can't get a game with them...

So much b*llocks spouted on here about 'BIG' money signings...

The best players we've signed in the last few years...

Payet £10.25m
Antonio £7m
Lanzini £9m
Cresswell £4m
Ogbonna £10m
Obiang £5.5m
Kouyate £5.5m
Sakho £4m

Further back Reid was only £4m an Adrian was on a free

Now compare that with Ayew (£20m), Jarvis (£12m) and an always injured Carroll (£15m).

There is very little value in a January transfer window and to be honest we're more likely in terms of incomings to have found it over anyone else. Snodgrass provides, scores and works...at least one of our full-backs with have cover now...for £7m it's the best bit of business in the window. Fonte for £8m holds up as well...you can't buy every player for the future.

Summer priority has to include a keeper (has anyone ever seen Randolph shout at his defenders?!), the right-back issue needs sorting (we'll never get Trippier from Tottenham) and a goalscorer. Wouldn't mind us signing the most horrible brute going to put some aggression into our CM as well.[/quote]



Ayew 20 million. That's the real gut buster. Thankfully it won't ever get to that ludicrous price. The geezer is turd. Which one of these players we have bought since leaving upton park could we not have signed had we stayed? We could have signed them all is the correct answer. The same will happen in January. We are going ****ing backwards. Then to add insult to injury you've got Gold popping up on twitter telling the fans it's no shame getting hanmered by city at home. Maybe just maybe not if we hadn't been hammered another half a dozen times by other less capable teams. Oh and if that wasn't enough Gold foolishly boasting about being the 4th highest spenders in the league with our 7 million pound profit.
These buffoons must go and it needs to happen NOW

They need to get off social media and conduct business in private but they love the feel good factor they get with being premier league chairman and cant resist.

Even slav at his press conference tells the opposition our fullback is struggling with his hamstring. Why ?

Just say all are good. If Byram gets slaugheted then say he was struggling but not before.

They will spend some in the summer but not a lot

Unless we sell anyone probably about 7 million

Look at our best few players.

One of them will be sold with most if the cash spent on transfers.

I think they were deciding between Payet and Antonio the last window and thought Payet would be easiest.

Come on, Hart is well above average. All this talk of next level blah blah blah, this would undoubtably be a next level signing. The bloke has won 2 Premier leagues, is our countries No.1 and is in the prime of his career. Massive leader too

Would almost definitely be more than £15m though

People can say a lot about the owners but to suggest they intend to sell our best players is pathetic. They never have

I do think that Cresswell will move on though. He seems to have lost his focus.

I would go for Robertson at Hull, and take Maguire at the same time.

Will Hughes is a good shout, then (maybe) Welbeck up front.

But then again, I am dreaming!

At Last! someone who seems to agree with me, the two owners plus sons, must STOP running the club on Twitter and the media, the press reports every day the errors Mr Gold makes and the arguments he has, that is not how a Club Chairman should be, and no way should children of a Chairman be releasing First what the Media Department should do direct with the press, yes it was nice at first how personal they were, but now is not only making themselves look a Joke! but the Club more important as well.

He could still do a job for us though.

What an awful thread? Are you guys sado masachists or something. The modern disease with football is that people are less and less interested in what's happening on the pitch and more interested in players we might or might not buy. After the dissapointment of January you'd think people might have learnt.

Call it what you like YAWN old boy but I think they find it hard to turn down large sums of money. Even when they're not really that large.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Payet's sale was planned and played out like the Bellamy sale.

Yeah let's concentrate more on what's happening on the pitch such as conceding 4 goals once every 3-4 games

Yeah, Big Sam is really showing us.

On a load of old sh.ite, I'd take Fonte and Snodgrass over any of his signings.
