  1. Hope we aren’t buying him by the kilo. There’s a lot of him.

  2. So the players that have to leave… Snodgrass? Feghouli? Hopefully the former, I still like Feghouli.
    Hopefully they don’t make a mistake and loan out Cullen, he needs to stay.. he’s proving himself, he looks decent.

    • Agree with you plus looks like Snodgrass would fetch a lil more money btwn £7-£8m maybe more of potential suitors start bidding war.
      But Feghouli has a good attitude has settled in now and good back up for an Antonio and Versatile.
      They have said they will hold off on selling him unless replacement is brought in. And imagine that would be Jota. But Slav is keen to keep Feghouli

  3. Apparently Namar is tired of being second fiddle to Messi … , sorry Namar but , every player ( with the exception of Ronaldo ) is second fiddle to Messi . Messi is so good at what he does ( playing football) that he will always be considered ahead of you and most others .
    Fact of life , old boy .

  4. Out from last seasons 25


    In for this season


    That still leaves 1 place

  5. Didn’t they say that the 20 mil we didn’t use on zaza would be saved for this window.. No moaning just asking

  6. Why do we need to sell again if Nordveit has already gone. Not sure that info is correct that someone else has to go.

  7. Sorry to see Randolph go . He was good and deserves the opportunity he would have been denied to a loan player .
    Have seen and read a lot of articles that agree with my opinion of Joe Hart but , none of which appear here . My doubts about Hart are real and I still feel the same . A wasted signing we didn’t need . But seeing as he is now at West Ham I can only wish him the very best for him and , more importantly, for us .

  8. N’Diaye could become a firm fan favourite

    As they say:

    N’Diaye-ee-i-ee-i will always love you….

  9. Seems strange we were ready to buy him weeks ago but they saidnir was false which his agent is pushing for a move.
    But don’t know much about him other than what I have read and watched. But if we want a CM who can get fwd he looks to be the bloke. He looks very good don’t the ball and fast on the break and if he could replicate that form here would be a threat.
    Just seem Newcastle are posies for late bid too.
    But have him for £8.5m over Wilshere for £20m.

  10. I think it will be either Snoddy or Fegs that heads out but supposedly this guy is central midfield so where does that leave Noble presuming that Obiang and Lanzini should be shoe ins ?
