If any transfer needs investigating it's the one involving Joselu!

All above board. He even had the carpets deep cleaned by professionals when he left.

This isn't the first time dodgy deals have been around us I think 🤔
It's probably pretty hard to find a club without dodgy deals kicking around these days.

Yep. I’m sure tapping up, gifts/payments to agents etc are all commonplace.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Which at this stage doesn't even bother me. That football clubs have gone down this path to commoditize players as they have, I can't then get mad that players, agents or clubs are circumventing what are already dumb rules.

Tapping up is basically every transfer these days, that's why you never hear anything about it anymore.

Reports that we've enquired about Xhaka.
Not sure what others think but I'd have him in a heartbeat

On £100k per week, so unless it was a January loan where we pay part of his wages I can't see it happening. I actually think he's a decent player too and though that position isn't a priority to strengthen he would represent an upgrade.

Though he's 27 so unless Ashley thinks we could get him below market value due to the current situation then sell him in 12-18 months for a profit...

Really? We've got Shelvey, Hayden and the Longstaffs. Two youth players who between them have played 20 games for the club

I’d say our priority is another striker far more than anything else.

Dont see it happening. We're going to stick with the lad we played £40mil for regardless.
Plus we brought in him and Carroll in in the summer. We've then got Gayle and Muto, all for one space in the squad

They're both as bad and good and inconsistent as each other.

Not for me Clive. Ki looked shaky last time he was in, but at least he can perform the role of a central midfielder even if he's having a bad game.

He's also pretty good performing as a phantom, disappearing in the midfield. Okay, maybe that's harsh, but despite the perception that we have a lot of central midfielders, given our generally horrendous possession, and lack of goal chance creation, I still think it's an area for improvement. Right now there isn't a single consistent CM among them (excused for the Longstaffs who are still young and inexperienced).

In terms of Shelvey I just don't think it works when he picks the ball up just outside our box and tries to ping 70 yard passes. Sure they work occasionally and look great but most of the time they don't. If he operated a bit further forward he could utilise his passing ability better.

The problem is that he isn't good enough to get the space higher up the pitch.
