Puff, you absolutely hate us buying 16-19 year olds from lower leagues/academies for next to nothing, but excited are by players from Equatorial Guinea?
I could list a whole load of them, from Gus Poyet's boy, through Martin Samueson via Haksabanovic, up to the current day, in Mesaque Dju and we can the number of first team appearances between the lot of 'em on the fingers of one hand. I know individually they didn't cost much, but you add up the combined fees together and there you have it, a not insignificant amount of money, totally wasted

I don’t. A lot of our gullible fans are already blaming ‘Dithering Dave’ on social media. Moyes will end up taking the flack.
Helped ably by C&Spew

Collison and Defoe were picked up in this way.

Pedro Obiang is Eq. Guinea's best player by a country mile
He won't be playing due to a lung condition.

I am starting to think this Newman was only brought in so Sully has another person to blame. Husillos II.
You could be right there..

Very disappointing

You only need one to make it to validate this strategy.

And that's without considering that the money we made selling Ashley Fletcher likely covered all of their fees.

Such a weird hill to die on.

You may be right there. This window is shaping up to be a huge sliding doors moment for the club.
If and it’s a huge if… we don’t sign anyone, I could genuinely see 9th or 10th in the league and not many more games in the cups.
It’s not that the players aren’t good enough, they just need some support. A couple of players now could be just the boost that they need. Lingard done it last season and cost us about £2m or £3m loan and his wages. It was hardly breaking the bank money. However it worked.

We’ve had 6 months since the last window to be scouting players and readying bids. I’m sure we’ve made some bids but clearly not tested the water on certain players.

I hope you and me are both wrong but this could be a massive turning point for the club

Bowen too. These players have ambition and will want to win silverware and to do that, they need to play with better players and you can't blame them if they leave

Sulli specials, sloppy seconds after Newcastle and Arsenal or "who we nearly signed for fifty million, but it will be available in the summer after we sell Rice and Bowen
