    I see we are linked with a Newcastle flop for 35m, does this window get any worse. I keep saying and my friends why did we spend so much time chasing a player who did not want to play in the PL. This shoudl have been the first thing we should have found out, what a waste of time and money, this is no way to run a business. Even with this player we have been offered the chance to sign him. It’s not a player Husillos has earmarked and done his homework on. Why have we not the right targets lined up from before the window and just went and got them. I thought our policy was to buy young, but proven exciting players. These type of players should have been purchased by now. We are in big trouble if Chica is our no 9 this season. We need a min of 4 quality signings, top defender, top midfielder box to box, top 9 and a top replacement for Arnie if we are to continue our progression.

    Does anyone know if there is a live stream for the game tomorrow? I enjoyed the ones they (eventually) got up and running last year. 🙂
