***'s sake.

Was really hoping Morsy would be in the squad for Friday.

Surely if he has been to rockliffe a offer has been accepted

Let’s hope they’re behind in their reporting 

He is behind. Still haven't finalised details though. Player has to push a bit harder for it, but hes all set

That Twitter account seems a bit strange even though it's affiliated with Sky Sports.

Saying he's not sure what the offer was and he's just guessing that Wigan won't accept it.

I'm glad we're moving for Morsy officially now getting a holding mid is crucial for us, other clubs have done this with Wigan it took Wednesday 2-3 bids until they got one accepted for Windass I think it was the same with Lowe.

Shouldn't be hard if the player is pushing like it seems he is he hasn't had a pre season really so probably be ideal to get him done for the Barnsley game next week.

I agree, never seen him before either.

If he can perform that kind of link up every week either from the start or off the bench he'll do great. If you set aside the 'x factor' a player like he has of perceived potential lost/not shown to this point the lads a 6 foot 4 striker with decent Ligue 1 experience who can hold the ball up. 

I am very interested if this stops our interest in Zohore and what type of striker we target as the 4th, I'd go for someone with pace and energy myself.

I suspect Woodrow, the guy we're reputed to be after from Burnley, will fill that position if things work out.

It’s the fella who got the purple dildo wacked off his head on deadline day outside Everton’s training ground

What are the club waiting for with bettinelli? Wonder if they plan to announce a couple tomorrow at the same time

The last detail was the negotiation with Fulham over what percentage of his wage we will pay.

well they were confident enough about it to have already taken the "he's signed" picture, so this would surprise me.

Apparently it was very close yesterday so assume it got sorted last night / this morning. It was the last sticking point though.

    • If we are to be reliant on Grant Hall then I'm genuinely worried. I didn't rate him but figured he would bulk out the squad with some experience so fair enough. He looked very ring rusty at the start of the season but I hoped that with a few months under his belt he would settle in. Now another lengthy injury lay off and I can't see him returning to a standard that we immediately require. In time he may improve but there is always that risk of a Gestede moment just waiting to happen. If Dijksteel is out we need to switch Howson to RB and bring in an additional CB on loan if we can't buy. The Tav injury I'm guessing will mean some time out for him if it is as bad as it looked. If we go with Watmore on one side and Johnson on the other with Spence/Coulson as back ups we can muddle through if Tav isn't out for long but the thin veneer of the squad is very apparent. The obvious would be to use Roberts instead of Tav especially if we are playing Howson behind him but I think Tav's grandmother has a better chance of getting game time.
    • He’s a victim like many Chelsea managers of the expensive signings not working out! This could be down to many factors but it’s a results driven game so makes sense for him to go.   Lets hope we weren’t after any players from Chelsea as this may not happen now.
    • Frank will be a Premership manager in his next role. I don't think there's any chance of him dropping to the Championship, even if he has to wait a little longer for an opportunity. He's very highly regarded by people in high places. He'd be the perfect fit at West Ham, but Moyes is doing a good job so can't imagine them changing manager any time soon. Supposedly Hasenhüttl is of interest to Chelsea. If so Southampton could be a decent fit. (EDIT: Scrap this last bit. It's Tuchel who's got the job by the look of it).
    • Wouldn't have him here myself at all. Think the fact he was in charge with all those top players flattered him.
    • Yeah, I think Lampard will be after bigger roles after managing Chelsea. I don't even agree with the sacking and I imagine there are clubs around the Prem who will be questioning whether they could have it better with Frank or if the timing of it is lining up well with the way things are going. Bielsa's contract is up in the summer, Bruce seems to be on borrowed time at Newcastle.
