Why hasn't this been announced yet? f*** me they're dragging it out aren't they?
Will be completing all the formalities, may need some stuff from Atlantas end too and its only about 7am over there atm
Ah fair one.
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

It's because word has got back to Ashley that we beat Man City the other night and he's now asking questions as to why we need new signings when the current squad appears good enough to compete at the highest level!

<wah>

The Lassassinblanc seal of approval is the kiss of death.

I kid, but it'll be all your fault if by some small miracle this doesn't happen.

How many weeks of pre season will he have had? Any word on if he's fit enough to be involved at once?

I wouldn't have thought so. I'm not sure if MLS pre season has even started yet? I don't think there's a chance of him starting against Spurs. Maybe a bench place, but might not even come on.

Last match played was on the 8th December and the new season doesn't start until the beginning of March so he won't have been in any pre-season training at all.

Apparently he has been training through the winter break. But a debut at St James' Park might be pretty special <awe>

In true Mike Ashley fashion there’s a suggestion that the deal is heavily incentivised and we’re (only) paying an initial £16m. Notice the club website didn’t mention anything about record breaking in their reveal.

But hey, welcome Almiron <diva>
