  1. Good.Sakho next pls!

  2. I thought he was a good buy when we got him, but it didn’t quite work out for him.
    I for one wish him well.
    Does this mean that a signing is imminent I wonder?
    If not, we’re leaving ourselves a little thin in the striker dept.

    • Same Condor I liked him but he didn’t score enough goals and was rarely played in position, hope you are right about the striker.

  3. Good riddance – harsh but fair!

  4. He simply didn’t do it apart from the first few months. He had a lot of good assets to his game, but he seemed to have no drive to succeeed,

  5. Never quite produced did he. A few flashes of star quality, but too much poor stuff in between.

  6. Anybody still think we are only “in the market for a couple of strikers”. Yeah right!! We still have a minimum of 5 to come in mark my words. Add 5 to Zaba and 3/4 youths and we might have a squad after all the departures.

    • I’m sure most of the new money is allocated to 2-3 quality strikers, but they do need others ( wingers perhaps ), so how much can they get for these fringe players. It would be great if perhaps Quina and at least one other youth could come through.
      The best thing about Hernandes is probably his price. He would be the key to the whole thing if we could get him for £13 mil.

  7. Still waiting to be pleasantly surprised but I’m not holding my breath . All the shopping bags seem to have holes in them .

  8. Not sure anyone knows how much money is allocated fishes ? Anyway 2-3 top strikers are not on the list that’s for sure lol, giroud is a good player but in truth he doesn’t want to come to us , IMO, inehenchio. Might be a possibility and Hernandez would be worth a punt,
    In reality we are going to probably end up with a player like the kid from Bournemouth who will cost loads a dosh who a couple of seasons back would have cost nadder -1/2 mill tops,
    Give it a couple of days then the squeekybum brigade will start appearing , 🙂 🙂 🙂 the squad goes away soon ?? Surely they need to be on board by then !! You would like to think so wouldn’t you , hope we get all our targets , that would be ideal, its just the money available and the willing to come , last year wasn,t a come and join us spectacular so let’s suck it and see, I’ll still be there having a crack, 🙂 can’t wait to see baddas new legs 🙂 🙂
