The January Transfer Window 2021 AKA "Didn't we do well"

Probably one of the few places he could still pick up £40k/week. On paper, at least. Turkish clubs don't have the best track record of actually paying their staff. Or dealing with racist fans.

Still though. Stay there 1.5-2 years, keep picking up a pretty penny, come back to the Champo for the twilight of his career. He'll be sorted by then.

Yeah at the end of the day, if he wants to keep his wages higher, he's not gonna get even close to what he's on here in England unless a Prem club is desperate and doesn't mind paying big wages for a lower transfer fee. I'm not at all shocked by him moving to Turkey if that is indeed where he's heading.

Aye, today James Nursey from the Mirror said there’s interest in Assombalonga from Turkey. I still think he’ll end up at a domestic club like Bournemouth or Fulham.

I read the Mirror thing as pure speculation that we wanted to offload him now if we want to recoup some money before his contract runs out, and that there could be interest from the CHampionship and maybe Turkey.

That is some wallpaper...

It's probably £100 a roll as well. If you look really closely at the photo, you can see it's stained with the tears of the Turkish decorator who had to try and hang it without ripping it.

Not sure they’re going to sell the manager mate 

It would really confuse things that’s for sure.

Well he is a Red32 employee so they may not have a choice.

We also might have known that Mejias is the type of guy to wear beige chinos...

Interesting. Dinamo said he was joining a British club. Guess that was just some misinformation!

Must have got lost in translation. They probably meant brute-ish. He'll be gone without pay before the season ends.

EFL interest is supposedly Derby but they have no money..

    • The thing that gets me is if Swansea had sportsmanship they would of let us walk the ball in for a draw like Bielsa did a few years ago but they didn't as they are cheaters hope they aren't promoted horrible club with cocky fans who are attacking Bolasie asking for VAR 
    • Straight down the middle. He would have saved it if he'd remained his normal  statuesque self. He must go at the end of the season. Dud!
    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
