The biggest signing next summer will be a two year extension for Pellegrini on top of his current contract, me thinks.

..Meanwhile Palace during this window and Zahahahahaha! :lol:

God awful window business which has ultimately ended in having to keep an extremely unhappy disillusioned player due to greed. Losing Bissaka at the same time is going to really hurt them.

Second summer in a row we've had a professional in charge of the transfers.
Call me crazy, but there may well be a link between the two :o

Only 2 year? I'd be more generous than that with a 4 year extension. I feel the wheels would have to fall off spectacularly for there to be much concern about his role as manager now he's getting settled in the job. Show him how much we appreciate what he and Husillos are doing.

Happy for Carroll to get a move back to Newcastle. Good luck to him.

That was my understanding, sure I read they didn't need to rush Carroll because of this. Think it's fine if there is a spare space in the squad?
The article I read a couple of days ago suggested you could only replace a player leaving the squad after the PL deadline.
Having said that, I've read so many vastly differing reports of the new rules that I don't know who to believe any more.

Edit: sorry if misquoted, forum revamp to blame!

I would argue that for a central midfielder, speed isn’t as important as quickness of thought. It’s more important that a central midfielder reads the game, moves the ball quickly and finds the correct position, rather than being able to cover distance quickly. This is something that Wilshire has in abundance and is why, on his day, there is no better English central midfielder. Pirlo, Xavi, Iniesta weren’t fast, but they are arguably the greatest central midfielders in the past 30 years.
I think that the central midfield that Pellers envisages is less reliant on speed, and more on technical ability… Wilshire, Fornals, Lanzini, Rice all fit the bill. Combine this with fast wingers (fullbacks), and a centre forward, who’s comfortable on the ball and bringing others into play, and you have a fluidity to the football played in the opponent’s half, aka the mythical West Ham Way
Agree with every word and said as much myself in the past. I do however believe Wilshere is quick. If he ever did one of those speed tests Clubs have I reckon he'd be holding his own well. He's not someone who I would class as a slow plodder in midfield.

It's worth noting that the reason her get injured is because he'd often be sythed down from behind once running with the ball because opponents struggle to keep up with him taking the ball away cleanly. The last resort is for them to kick his ankles which invariably led to a spell out injured. He's a quick dribbler with the ball.

I'm gutted. I reckon the cheapskates should bung us at least a couple of million for fixing him up well enough to pass a medical. Our medical department has been hard at work for six years to get him in such good current condition!
