I don’t think abusive posts should be tolerated but I personally don’t have an issue with people overreacting if that is what they want to do. What harm is it doing? It certainly isn’t stopping people returning to the thread!! (Secretly I think most like the drama).

Shame if it was moderated to death and all became rather anodyne.

I’m not sure Arsenal will be looking for anything more than back up as Tierney is arguably their best player. They’re being heavily linked with Zinchenko so maybe that will be their answer as a utility player that can play there

Why are we all coming to a transfers thread when no transfers are occurring?

Some want to vent. Some want to vent about those venting. Some want to create lists of players we will never sign, some want to talk about nonsense they’ve read on Twitter. And some come here for the occasionally decent puns.

It’s all a bit daft really. If you don’t like someone’s post, you don’t have to? Moaning about someone else’s post isn’t exactly adding value.

David Raum would be amazing. A positive spin on us not getting Hickey could be that we have intentions of shopping a bit higher up. The question then becomes whether Raum is too high up.

So a quick recap on the situation at hand:

Striker- (Broja) waiting for Chelsea
Attacking midfielder - (Lingard) Waiting for Jlingz
Left back - waiting to make our move
Midfield - probably going to wait until the end of the window - unless Ericksen accepts our offer.


So really it's only left back that we need to get busy on

Tierney is broken and my mate described the lad they brought in last season as the worst fullback he has ever seen!

I hope we are also in the mix for Dennis and Sarr

We ain't gonna be able to compete with the big boys for him. But after the rich clubs have done their thing, and if Raum is still sitting in the shop window by some miracle, we'll get him. Till then, prep a back up just in case (Maehle) and then keep our powder dry.

You'll never know.

Not quite. Top teams in other leagues may also be shopping for the same position, and a player may take a view that a contract at a CL qualified club on a lower wage than the PL cold offer may be a better career move i.e stepping stone.

An unnamed, “lower-ranked” team is said to have bid for Depay. I suspect abroad, any team that isn’t one of the usual lot is a “lower-ranked” team.

Cannot see him passing a Moyes test. Can see him passing a Sullivan test.

Didn't one of our German posters suggest his place in the National team would be at risk if he left Germany?

He is definitely the pick of the ones we've been linked with. The Danish lad is also quality, just think he is better on the right.

Pezza mentioned a while back 2 players in the bag. Were they Aguerd and Areola? Or deals that had fallen through?

Yes although the point I'm making is that most clubs have done their left back business. Theres less clubs looking although I accept that some overseas clubs still are.
And I suspect that Bassey would likely only go to the premier league, which is good for us should he be the on Moyes shortlist!

Getting in a Germany starter does seem a bit of a push but hey, we have Rice, Bowen and Zouma... it might not be impossible. Starting week in, week out for a strong West Ham side in the Prem should mean he continues to stand out. Perhaps not as much in Germany, but it doesn't seem like it should be a death knell to his international career if he comes to us and does well.

If Bayern or Dortmund aren't interested, maybe we have a chance. I would also be happy with Maehle and that one does feel more realistic. Just that caveat about his favourite side and being right footed predominantly that makes me a bit unsure.

Cor what took Everton so long to wrap Tarkowski up? He was a free transfer. Surely they'd have known he wanted to join months ago, how disrespectful of him not to sign earlier, etc. Etc.

Big, strong, quick, with an excellent left foot. Would be a top class signing and is a clear-as-day upgrade on Cresswell.
Oh please…. Best one out there by a mile, but can you see GSB coughing £25m for a full back, even the one who’d be the biggest single improvement we’d make this window ?

So have we fallen down the pecking order as a direct consequence of not strengthening in January and finishing a few places higher or is this just the natural order being re established?

He is a quality player, but depends if he has grown up since his days in Manchester. As you say, doesn't feel like a Moyes signing but I think his wages aren't crazy and he can play on the left, upfront or off the striker which ticks a lot of boxes.

Will be interesting to see who it is.
