Fulham making promising attacking signings with Lookman and Loftus-Cheek coming in. Unfortunately they still have a League 1 defence.
That reminds me, with them already having loaned out Alfie Mawson - what an expensive bust he was. That they spent 20m on him 2 years ago and he isn't good enough for CB with their options right now (already sent on loan to Bristol City) is damning.
Still, it’s less embarrassing than Man U spending £80m on Maguire.

Wait, wait, wait, RLC is on 150k a week?! That's insane! How are they spending what they are on transfer fees this year already paying wages like that to mediocre players like him!

‘Breaking news’ is very apt given his injury record.

Says he's been healthy for much of his time there and they simply didn't play him. Given the previous 8 years of his career, I'm doubtful.

Apparently “desperate to play football” but I bet he wouldn’t take a £20k a week offer to play in the Championship.

What's funny about Wilshire being released.. is that he'll be the perfect box-to-box technical central midfielder who could could work well with Hayden with his vision, passing, creativity, movement & footballing IQ.

Unfortunately his injury & fitness record have taken there toll & I doubt he'll ever be the same physical. Would anyone take a punt on him.. like a Carroll sort of deal? Give him a basic wage of 20k a week with added bonuses related to appearances / performance & even more for goals/assists? Surely can't be the worst deal.. give him a short term contract (3 - 4 months) then extend it if it goes well? Or even better a pay as you play deal.. ???

Absolutely not. Steer well clear.

Agreed. On paper he fits nicely, but if he's been fit for 8 months and not picked there's a damn good reason.

The number of players loitering at clubs, not playing is ridiculous. And I don't blame the players for that - clubs are so irresponsible giving out 5+ year contracts to uncertain players and then moving onto the next ones without a plan for getting rid of the old. The entire system sometimes feels so broken.

Wilshere doesn't strike me as the sort of player that would take a deal like that. I imagine he will be like Welbeck and still expect a 6 figure weekly salary despite never showing that he is worth it. I expect a team like Fulham will pick him up and pay him a decent wage.

Never understood the issue with that tbh, there's only 2 teams in the league with the same 'name' so it's natural to refer to them as 'City' and 'United'. Most other teams just go by their location without the United part when spoke about casually or in the press.

That's true at the moment, but if Sheff Wed get promoted I'll eat my hat if they start referring to Sheffield United as "United".

I refer to Man Utd as "United" all the time and everyone knows what you mean <laugh>. If we referred to ourselves as "United" then it might be an issue, but we don't, neither do Leeds, West Ham or Sheff Utd.

<notbad>

Good signing, but west ham have a habit of signing ex citing seeming players and making them crap. Felipe Anderson was a good signing at the time, but now on loan at Porto. Good on him.

Anderson was class in his first season then fell off a cliff for some reason and was awful after that.

This. Plus the 'Red Devils' is a lame and cingeworthy nickname - it doesn't surprise me they prefer just to call themselves United.
