If Burnley offered only 11 million and it’s not Gibson it has to be Vydra surely 

Yeah I’d say it’s pretty much nailed on to be vydra.

Or we just take all the money and buy eze. I really think there is a chance we can get him now ?

Haha same tbh specially if Leicester have interest and we can get £20m, the Aberdeen defender, eze plus cash left over for a wide player (Kent maybe) imo would be pretty good business.

Britt going is the Liverpool equivalent of letting Sturridge leave and playing Firminho instead. IF we had a striker lined up more suited for that role THEN it makes sense to cash in, but otherwise we are boned. 

Likewise selling Fry only makes sense if we have one or two suitable replacements lined up already, otherwise it's just a cash grab.

What good would getting Vydra do? We don’t play a 10 and the squad is very CM heavy, so it suits us to play 3 in midfield. It just doesn’t make sense.

Fry leaving I’m not massively fussed over as long as we get a good price and the replacement is lined up.

I love Britt he’s a proper jonny on the spot.. but he lets himself down so often. Clumsy, falls over, poor touch. If he stays I’m happy.. if he goes I’m fine as well, there’s other players.

Vydra played left of deeny for Watford in a 3 I think?

ive just watched a video of Frey and tbh I think he’d go down a storm here, doesn’t look like an out and out CF, looks like he plays quite a bit from the left. His touch, strength and vision at times is excellent and looks like he has a phenomenal work rate .

First of all I’d like to caveat this post by saying I would prefer for Britt &Fry to stay. 

But am I the only one that’s a bit meh if they leave? 

Most fans including me think we’ll finish top half. Certainly not expecting promotion even with those two. Without them will we get relegated? I think that is very unlikely. We are in a rebuilding/transitional phase and 25-30million would go a long way to help us next season and the following ones. Personally I think Woody needs 3 seasons to show that we are on the right trajectory (obviously we need to see the correct progress each year) 

Also if it is premier league teams coming in for those players we pretty much have to let them go if they so desire. We saw with Braithwaite what happens if a player is unhappy or unwilling to stay if a bigger club/league comes in for them. 

All we know for sure is the next 36 hours or so is gonna be a nervous/exciting/bum twitching period of time so let’s not get too upset and see what happens

im quite pleased with our signings so far to be honest,would like to keep fry if possible however if we have to let him go due to finances then so be it,as with brit,im not bothered if he does go,he is replaceable ,if we spend what we have wisely,as weve done so far this preseason then we will be ok,i personally dont think losing assombalonga will be the end of the world,im quite happy to see how this pans out the next 2 days.onwards and upwards guys

If they are going don’t want them to hope we get some good replacements in first then confirm they’ve been sold at last minute so we’re not getting our pants pulled down with big fees

I dont want Fry or Britt to go but it looks like nobody is interested in Shotton Gestede or Saville, It was said early on they had players waiting to come in but it was dependant on outgoings. 

Probably wouldn't have got enough from the 3 to bring in who we wanted,So lets wait till the window closes before debating whether it has been a good or bad window.

Hopefully we get a more balanced squad, the way Woodgate is set on playing i am sure any decent striker will score goals.

Let’s somehow try to make it more positive. Say we do get £30m and Ben Gibson for Fry and Britt. How do you spend the £30m? Names and Prices, go...

The arsenal lad, Nketiah? Loan.

Eze 8m.

Keep the rest, Re access in Jan.

Info could be an issue next 35 hours.... looks like all phones to be left in reception....

If it means our targets don't get leaked then fair enough.

 

Can you get to an internet cafe? ?

(Do they even still exist?)

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
