It certainly is, when you consider the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have to pay the mortgage on their new builds.

Haven’t arsenal paid off their stadium? Think they did in record time which was also why they have fallen a bit behind as they couldn’t invest as heavily in the squad.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

Does anyone know when Premier League clubs need to submit their 25 man squad? Maybe this will be key to our next lot of business.

I can see us bringing in 3 more players, all on load

Striker, Centre Half & ‘Creative Midfielder’

i see Fulham are allowing Kevin MacDonald to leave on a free, sure we’ve been linked before and he sounds like a Warnock type, tons of experience.

They haven't paid it off yet, they have paid about half off though. If I recall correctly Kroenke restructured the clubs stadium debt, so that they now owe him directly, but at much lower interest rates. 

It's similar to what Gibson did with our debts.

maybe one more perm, and then hope we can pick up a few in the loan market - probably

When you "pick players up" in the transfer market,they still have a wage to be paid,whether free or not. The only transfers I can see happening is in the loan market where the parent club want to give game time to players to improve their fitness...IE Patrick Roberts from Man City,but I'll bet the parent club paid most if not all his wages...Benefits both clubs,really...I suspect that is what the club will be looking at

i thought the fact you have to pay players was a bit obvious.

a lot of clubs haven't managed to move on players, and as pointed out by manby others, there are still a lot of free agents out there.

we have 2 basic criteria - 1) the player improves the squad,  2) it is within our financial capability

Sorry to mention transfers, but apparently a few championships clubs are interested in Curtis Jones from Liverpool. 
 

I know it’s unlikely to happen but that would be a fantastic signing. 
 

exactly the midfield creativity we have been missing. 

Unlikely it is putting it mildly. More chance of me playing in championship than there is of Curtis Jones this season. I would not pay attention to the rumour my friend.

Spurs signed a deal with the NFL which covered a very significant chunk of the cost to build the stadium. They aren't going to have the same problems Arsenal had.

Ladies and gents, we are not going broke this season. I'm sure our finances are somewhat tight, but there's no way we're spending £3m+ on players in the midst of the pandemic if we're emptying the penny jar. That would be worse money management then the early-mid 80s & earlier, even given our current business flaws there's just no way that we're mirroring anything that short-sighted.

A few other clubs, on the other hand, have plenty to worry about

Derby will be okay, they'll just sell their stadium for a billion pounds

    • Agreed, there must be some truth to it. I hope so anyway.
    • If only we had a king to ask🤔
    • Personally, I quite enjoyed it. Scotland played fantastically well, but then they would. I’d liken it to when a lower league team draws a premier side in the cup. If they come for their big day out and they stick to the game plan, anything can happen.  Always the same when there’s a gulf in class (though Scotland have some good players here and there these days). If anything England got off quite lightly. 
    • England were far too slow getting the ball forward, Southgate favorite Sterling came into the Euro's out of form and struggling to make the Man City 1st 11, watched him get owned by James in the cup final and Tierney last night not good enough. Rice plays DM for West Ham yet  still manages to get into the opposition box and score goals so he's obviously being told not to venture forward. Mason Mount persisted on taking the corners despite not being able to clear the 1st man and he's tracking back and putting a challenge in non existent. Kane is playing with he's back to goal most of the time he's a top striker and the midfield created absolutely nothing for him shouldn't need to be going deep. I don't rate Lyndon Dykes very highly yet he won just about every ball in the air and numerous free kicks. A good coach can see when and where its going wrong and makes the subs and tactical changes to try and put it right, Southgate just isn't good enough to do that, fits the England coaching/manager role well, nice inoffensive guy who won't criticize the team regardless of how they play says all the right things, and as done nothing at management level, he fits the profile, stick with nice guy Gareth, its one of the reasons Brian Clough never got the job and that is why we are still lunching out on 1966.
