Latest link from France is Ludovic Ajorque - a 6'6" striker.

I quite liked that bloke who played for Genk.

I think Lingard will join, but not until after we have played Man Utd. He looked lively when he came on against Villa in the cup.
No surprise there really! He's not had to do much for a while now!

Should just pay a 6 month loan fee to United then within 1 month of his contract going get him signed up to a pre contract a nice signing bonus and have him with us for the next 3 years.

Saying that! what's the reckoning he's off to Roma to join Mourinho when his contract runs out! I mean that's just a wild plucked out of the air scenario but not unplausible.

His biggest issue was that he didn't take his chances...our lot couldn't handle him in the air.

Again, why on Earth would Man Utd strengthen a rival for a 6 month loan? That would be the most insane decision they could possibly make re Lingard.

10 goals and 6 assists in 18 games this season, not bad at all.

16 goals and 4 assists last season.

27 but seemed to be a late bloomer!

I liked him as well. Yes he didn’t take his chances, but Antonio struggles with this sometimes too, and I think he could do well winning headers and helping in linkup and holdup play.

He doesn’t look it (because of his height), but he’s actually quite rapid as well when he is bursting into the box. He ran the 100m when younger.

Also imagine Cresswell delivering corners to Zouma, Soucek, Rice, Dawson, Antonio, and Onuachu late in a game when we’re chasing a winning or tying goal…

if you know a car is worth £1,000 why would you pay £5k for it in January when you can get it for £1k 6 months later.
Because the races you are involved in run from Jan-May and you need the car now.

Paying a little more now may mean you win one of these races which would likely cover the additional outlay plus make the supporters of your garage very happy.

Because if they don't get any money for him now they're going to lose him for free.

Even a £5 million loan fee would not be worth it if we finish above them.

Ajorque's YouTube highlights really aren't very good :lol:

But, he is from Reunion... If he has anywhere close to the impact of our last Reunionite...

It's not like they need the money either. But yeah they're just going to lose him for free.

I thought about those 'rumours' he was going to Tottenham and still think he would end up at Roma if he doesn't come back to us.

Unless he really wants to earn serious £££ and go to Newcastle (if they stay up)

I dont think they rate Lingard that highly up there to worry about him having such a big impact again. Or else they probably would be playing him a bit.

It'd be interesting to see how many French based players we've been linked to in the last couple of years

The only one we signed came via Fulham

Any links to the French should probably be treated with a pinch of salt...I think a few of the news outlets out there have us on autofill

I have a feeling the Ake rumours may start up again soon... he's a safe loan option
