Offer has been accepted bauser has had his critics but he has pulled masterstrokes on both of these.  Now over to you Leo!  Payero small issues look sorted should be an announcement tomorrow or f

Gibson doing a Gibson. Having another punt, pushing for Bolasie, this Argentinian and money available for a couple more. (Not a lot though) Spence going for £5m

Not been keeping up but Sporar should be sorted by Tuesday

Lot's of bargains this summer I reckon. Left back Casper Højer is joining Slavia Prague for as little as 700k euros. Arguably the best left back in the Danish league, 26 years old and never injured. Contract runs out at the turn of the year, so was always going to be sold cheap. Would have been well suited for the Championship. Wand of a left foot.

Do we need Rhys Williams? CB is probably the last position we need strengthening, especially if it’s a loan. 

I'd imagine we are loaning Wood out again and we'e not exactly flush with central defenders. We only really have Fry and Hall. I'm still not convinced that McNair should play in defence.

Paddy is certainly quite capable, but given his ability on the ball I do feel he's wasted there.

Isn't Hennessey out of contract at Palace so would be free not a loan.

Hennessey signing would contradict that poster who said we in for a GK in his 20s. Unless we want both.

2gks makes a lot of sense.

Can’t find the actual link. Not sure if ESPN are reliable.

 

Here's the ESPN link...though you have to scroll about halfway down to find the Spence article:

https://www.espn.co.uk/football/manchester-united/story/4360439/rashfords-two-year-battle-through-pain-at-man-united

 

According to Rangers News he's a "very exciting" player and NW asserted he has "enormous ability". 

https://www.rangersnews.uk/transfer-news/rangers-eye-multi-million-swoop-for-exciting-player-wolves-and-everton-also-keen-report/

I wonder if we should tell them we'd happily let him go for a bag of Haribo Tangfastics...or in their case a box of Tunnock's tea cakes?

We're currently negotiated down to a pear drop after his scooter injured Kebano, didn't you know?

I cant see Rhys happening.
 

If he comes he would be no more than cover and LFC have that thing where they insert a clause that they loan players must play and if they don't there is a charge the club pay LFC for each game they player does not get game time.

Yeah I actually agree. It’s just a weird one. Would Liverpool/Williams be happy sitting on bench? Is he going to get ahead of McNair and Hall? 
if the answer is yes (which could be the case) then where does McNair fit? He’s been bang average for the most part when playing in midfield imo, so can we afford to have someone who’s our third most sellable asset (?) sat on the bench? 
 

I mentioned it a couple weeks ago in a match thread that I wouldn’t be totally against cashing in on McNair if we needed to generate funds as daft as it sounds after the season he’s had. 
 

im just thinking out loud and tbh if we are to go for promotion, then strength in depth is exactly what we need. We’ve seen this season that if we get a few injuries then our starting 11 is no where near as good. Perhaps there is a place for all of them in the squad.

Aye. If we could get our money back I'd probably sell and use the money to get a specialised defender and an attacking midfielder.

    • I thought we won some kind of award a few years ago?  Might have been medical rather than sports science, mind.
    • What a signing this lad is turning out to be.    
    • Honestly I might be totally naive but I've never heard of this until today, has it been reported in the press, or is it something you need to be ITK to be be aware of?   We've all criticised the club for recruitment as it has looked poor from the outside looking in but I wasn't aware of an amateurish sports science department. I'm not trying to have an argument I've just never heard this before. 
    • I'm not sure how relevant having access to information is quite honestly. What information do you think would change people's minds about homosexuality?  Is there any that could suddenly take someone from 'I hate it' to 'I think it's fine'?  I'm not so sure?  There's plenty of people in this country who don't like homosexuality, and as I said, it wasn't that long ago that it was illegal here.  As I also said, it is a religious thing.  Even in this country it was essentially illegal because the dominant religion here held that it was wrong.  The difference isn't that we are more enlightened, I think it's just that we are less religious, and this secularism, especially in newer generations, is what is removing the stigma attached to homosexuality.  I don't believe it is ignorance and it's too easy to label it as such.  They know exactly why they believe what they do. 
    • We've had 2 old school managers in quick succession, I'd guess some moved on due to lack of input.
