We must have invested some of the 55 million budget into state of the art hamstrings for the big man 👏

To answer my own question, unverified account with 400 followers who "used to work at the Mail" and now "works closely with Sky".

...Sounds like he's really well connected. :crylol:

Can't fail to bring in a striker if we pretend we didn't want one anyway.

He has a pinned tweet with all the "transfer deals he has got correct ". Trying to create a career out of nothing.

or maybe moyes is just being shafted by sulli - as he does with every manager

moyes is pragmatic, he isn't going to wait to the last couple of weeks to make all his signings, not with a squad like this in a covid world, 1 or 2 - sure, you can see how he might be willing to chance that if he has a number of possible targets... but no all his business, i doubt this window is going as planned which seems to be what you are hinting at

hope you are right - but i doubt it
I'm not hinting at anything, I'm saying wait and see because Moyes DOES SEEM to have a preference for leaving it late.

Coufal, Lingard, Dawson, Bowen, Benrahma (twice), Soucek...all signed in the last few days (or day) of the window...I can only find Randolph that he signed with about 10 days of the window to go...

That's a clear pattern, maybe it's how he likes it, maybe it's how it is working with Sullivan...I don't know.. But choosing to ignore what is a clear pattern in Moyes' transfer dealings is just plain silly.

Arsenal bid £60m+ for Maddison. Image

All getting a bit reminiscent of Man U spending £130m on Wan Bissaka and Herman Munster

striker not a priority - only at West Ham where we have 0 strikers (yes yes I know Antonio) could someone come out and say that and I honestly believe it

And the very first one is Bowen to Liverpool that hasn't actually been verified, let alone happened.

Yikes.
