Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist

Different circumstances - Jonas they stopped short of his appearances clause and told him to look for a new club after his cancer diagnosis. He was a regular in the squad prior to that diagnosis and there hadn't been any transfer bids. Shelvey has seldom played this season and wasn't likely to edge...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist

One I'm surprised we haven't enquired about or perhaps we have is Houssem Aouar has been linked around a few clubs today as Lyon wants to make money from him as he's not signing a new contract. Can't say I really know him but I think it sort of touches on my point. You panic with regards to the nex...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist

I do think we're a player light - probably in CM given we play 3 and have 4 (not ideal up top but Howe seems to think Gordon can play there), but I don't mind us keeping our powder dry for the summer. It's a risk but we've got this far with 4 CMs and I think if push comes to shove Miggy and even Sch...

Re: Anthony Gordon signing imminent?

I think it's a clever signing. He's perfect for the system. We may have overpaid a bit but he'll slot into the press no problem and can play either side. How many players out there available can hit the pressing numbers he can? Few of our boys are looking leggy too it has to be said. Also, for those...

Re: Matchday thread - Sheffield Wednesday v Toon



Not sure if I believe this but hopefully the case. There's plenty going round. Otherwise we need a winger this Jan, to go with a CM. Interested to see how Anderson goes today.

Re: Match Thread: Liverpool v Newcastle

Trying to think objectively Isak was offside. He looks lively and I'm really excited about him Pope was down for 90 seconds in injury time. Liverpool won the corner at 96:30. I'm not sure how it took so long to take the corner but it probably wasn't as unfair a goal as we all think for all that I th...

I'd love to see a DM come in who can start week in week out. Not sure one is there, perhaps it's Douglas Luiz.

Re: Summer Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 22/23

He can cover RB and CM. Underwhelming as I don't think he starts but would be a useful body through the door. Do think the squad looks a little thin with Shelvey and Krath out long term

Re: Other Clubs Summer Transfers/Rumours 22/23

Would have been nice to have a reunion with Bruno but became quite obvious he wasn't ever really a target. Think it says a lot about the seriousness in us only signing the right players and not just for the sake of it. Absolutley bang on. By the sounds of it Bruno was asked to play a limited role i...
