It won’t be us for Diego Carlos. We can’t really afford to deal with Sevilla anyway, they’ve been the absolute masters of maximising profit the last 10 years or so. Only clubs that can afford to overpay like Newcastle will buy from there imo
He loves giving away a penalty too…3 in a row in the Europa league last year

It's quite incredible that we're at 420 pages and there's not been a single shred of credible news. Proper stinker of a thread.
Not quite that incredible Scratchy... It happens nearly every transfer window.

Unless something escalates fairly quickly we appear to be no near to any incomings or outgoings.

I would very much hope that at least one of the problem positions gets sorted.

Sully & his spawn have gone quiet, (thankfully), & Moyes has plugged the leaks whilst being well known to leave transfer business until the last week of the window...
My bets on first signing on page 817...
We should run a sweepstake...

Based on what, your intimate knowledge of our transfer dealings?

Or the relative silence from the club compared to years previous where Sullivan couldn't help ****ing himself off in public over his latest bid for a high profile name while secretly setting up a loan deal for a fifth choice striker from Juventus?

Wouldn’t hope to much, only had 4 transfer windows to sort it. Apparently there as been no one available so we ‘make do’ with Yarmolenko & Masakau of the bench each week regardless how the games going and weather they are needed or not.

Attila Szalai starts for Fenerbahce in 10 mins so I'd guess we have made to real approach for him as of yet.

Maybe Moyes is streaming the game though

As much as we like to joke, I don’t think the two are correlated.

Schick would be a great signing, a good age and proven quality.

Would be our best finisher instantly, is he the same sort of forward as Antonio? No.

But who is?

Moyes will only be targeting him if he knows he can fit the system around him.

The time between the sinking of the Titanic and the release of The Beatles’ Revolver was smaller than the gap between the release of The Beatles’ Revolver and the present day.

Claret & Hugh claim their top secret key insider (aka David Gold) has told them that there may be one possible big signing but not in a position we need. This insider has also told them that Moyes has been explaining to his backroom staff and the board that the names he has seen aren’t any better than we already have in his opinion. As it's deemed bad form to post links to that site, I'll leave it at that.

Not in a position we need? I can only really think of GK and RB where we’re pretty well stocked.

So that’s a Right Back or Attacking midfielder then.
