  1. Hi Mate.
    Can I make a suggestion. I notice no one comments on here and now I know why. It is an awkward login process you have with unfamiliar sign in. Can’t you just use google to log in or another standard method. I always enjoy your articles and have a little thought I like to chat about but no one wants to sign up and log in this way. I love how straight to the point, only relevant and clear info you have. I have taken the time to sign up this way to write you this but it seems no one else can be bothered to use this that is out of touch with every other site sign in method. What are your thoughts?

  2. Let’s hope we can get them done Onana would be huge for us (no pun intended) if they can get Zielinski also and a genuine left back ideally Raum thats probably another £60 – 90m

    When you look at the fixture list this season once you add cup games in we need a lot more depth if we are going to compete, the 5 substitutes per game will definitely be needed to avoid stress related injuries, Rice and Soucek can’t play every minute, perhaps that is why we are also in for Brereton Diaz and Harrier, Kostic etc ?

  3. £90mil.
    Given the meagre spending over the past 2 years, and the retirement of club capt. Noble, £90mil. doesn’t sound much compared to (According to Transfermarkt)
    Arse £120mil. Spuds £92mil. Chelsea £85mil (In 2 players) –
    Others so far: Man U £65mil. – Forest £73mil. – ‘Pool £77mil. -Toon £60mil

    Not even considering ow much those teams have spent in previous seasons?
    Man Citeh have spent £100mil and recouped £144mil.

  4. Don’t forget we kept money in our pocket in January when we was rumoured to have offered 50 mill for Philips and 50 mill for Raphina from Leeds but ended up spending nothing. So if true that’s 100 million carried forward to this window. Not to mention the money we didn’t spend on a striker the window before that.

  5. It would be interesting to know much we are allowed to spend nett this window to stay within FFP rules. This includes wages budget as well. Newcastle have zillions but are limited on spend due to FFP. Man City spend includes income from players leaving.
