palace can afford him, we cant because we could not move either perez or chico, our bid was based on one out to bring one in, we really are a two bob outfit in the transfer market

Yep. Makes sense. They just said it was a deal too good to refuse for Parish.

That's how we've ended up in the position (squadwise) that we are now.

I know we need bodies but absolutely no way we should be panic buying.
That's how I see it too.

100 pages - Nasri
200 pages - Dju
300 pages - n/a
page 300 is for the 35+ year old we sign on a free in February.

Zabaleta has already publicly stated how much bad blood there's been around the squad recently because of issues with this window and that would just exasperate the issue more.

Best off without him leeching on us at that wedge demand.
I get that, I just didn’t think he’d actually be on that much.

Sky basically saying we would’ve gone in harder for Batshuayi had we managed to shift out Perez/Chicha. So that would explain why we seemingly didn’t agree terms...


Looks like just Nasri.

Never seen the fascination with Batishyui , personally I think he’s dog poo. If he can’t score in a team with Hazard et al, what’s he going to do here?

If it means we at the least kept Perez and Hernandez for the meantime till the summer, I really ain't all that bothered. Certainly got goals amongst them two alone. We really ain't desperate for Strikers. We'd be 2bob if we allowed them to go without any decent replacements.

Once the window shuts the players will know where they stand, hopefully things will settle down and we can start to focus on playing football again, get a few of the walking wounded back, and let's try and finish as high as possible.

Chuffed we aren’t signing Batshuayi we already have better

Imagine turning your nose up at us only to end up at Palace :lol:

He’s exactly where he should be!

Arnautovic will be fit again in a couple of weeks, Lanzini back fit by the end of March - like new signings

Why, what's so special? He scores and assists less than Arnautovic, Anderson, Perez, Hernandez.

The last published accounts where we have a higher turnover and lower wage bill than Palace say hello.

Didn’t actually want to but Batshit - but, bloody hell we could do with a decent athletic midfielder.

It's overlooking the Defence I'm most concerned about.

Yeh I mean imagine if we could have a striker that scored 1 in 15 at Valencia :lol:

They even sent him back and tried to replace him with one of ours
