Other Clubs' Transfer Rumours/Deals (Summer 16/17)

Postby Cal » Tue May 17, 2016 6:28 pm

Use this thread to post rumours or confirmed deals related to other clubs' transfers in or out this summer, as well as deals completed that aren't worthy of a thread.

If it's a major story/development from a trusted source or an ongoing saga then give it its own thread, even if it's not necessarily to do with NUFC.

My sisters fiancé is a Celtic fan and when he first said he'd 'quite like' Rodgers I laughed in a 'well I bet you would but it isn't gonna happen' sort of way. Apparently the rest of twitter doesn't share my opinion that he's above that level.

I'm sure he will have had interviews for some of the vacant PL jobs since leaving Liverpool, Swansea didn't want him to return if you believe reports but can he really be a 'fluke'? Before I thought we had any chance of getting Rafa i'd have took him happily and would again this summer if Rafa didn't want to stay.

It's a risk for him though, if he blows this he'll find it hard to get back into English football.

It's a very safe job. He'll win the league, get some Champions League and wait for a Prem job to become available.

Rodgers taking one of the easiest jobs in world football. Granted, Rangers should at least give them some competition next season and hopefully win the league.

Whatever happened with Ashley's involvement in Rangers?

Rodgers really isn't great. He had a world class Suarez carry him at Liverpool. He's like a better Martinez, can get his teams playing football but lacks a plan B and can't organise a defence. Awful in the transfer market too.

Which manager signed Suarez ? Was it Rafa?

Kenny Dalglish.

Wasn't Dalglish the interim manager? If so I doubt he had much say on transfers (which are done by a transfer committee at Liverpool).

Ended up in charge for 74 games. Might have been the committee but I'm sure he'd have had a say. He's a legend there.

He was always fond of that big guy little guy strike partnership, which is why he got Tomasson for Newcastle in the 90s. It seemed to me at the time that he at least had that much input into signings at Liverpool.

I think Liverpool's transfer committie signed Suarez more than Kenny did

I'd be very surprised if Dalglish even knew who Suarez was before he signed him.

It would be great to see Zlatan in the PL, even if it is at Man Utd.
