  1. dUbraVka and dArlOw are da same
  2. Howay then, it feels like it's time for another recap of where things are at: Centre-back Clearly still working on both a right-sided CB and a left-sided CB, with Diego Carlos of Sevilla the clear first choice at RCB (Gleison Bremer of Torino and James Tarkowski of Burnley still being consistently linked as alternates, with Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina as a recent rumour of interest). With the Sven Botman (Lille) deal seemingly dead in the water, it appears that Benoit Badiashile of Monaco is the second choice at LCB (rumours of revived interest in Nico Schlotte
  3. Aye, I'm following it intensely, but I realise it's completely out of my control. There's still plenty of time left in the window and it's clear that we are working tirelessly. There's easily £100M+ still to spend, too, which will eventually translate to 3-4 players coming in that are significantly better than what we have.
  4. Class. Up with this sort of thing. Surprised we haven't seen more of it yet, tbh.
  5. Think it’s about time we got something tangible.
  6. Seems to be a consensus in the press that Carlos is pushing for it because of the finances, and it's inching closer. Can't imagine you'd be swapping a title challenge in Seville for a relegation battle in Newcastle for anything other than money, to be fair!
  7. Two in this week, I reckon, at a minimum. Hoping to be pleasantly surprised by the quality.
  8. I hope we’re working towards being here at the end of the window in terms of best XI and shape: Dubravka Schär New New Trippier New Joelinton New New Saint-Maximin Wilson 3-4-2-1/3-4-3/5-4-1, whatever you want to call it. The direct backups would effectively be: Darlow Fernandez Lascelles Dummett Manquillo Longstaff Hayden Lewis Fraser Almiron Wood Krafth, Shelvey, Willock (almost forgot him he’s so useless atm), and Murphy as the extras, provided one of

    Jonjo Shelvey

    We need to sign a couple of centre backs, go back to a three with Schar on the right, and fuck this bloke off for good.
  10. Don’t rate Targett much, like. About as average as it gets.
  11. Think your posts are fantastic tbh, great insight
  12. Cheers again @SteV, added you as a moderator in here so you can now update thread titles, etc.

    This is all assuming that story's not a load of bollocks, of course.
  14. Having watched the training videos and now Howe's presser, I'd be surprised if it's not: Dubravka Trippier Schär Lascelles Dummett Fraser Longstaff Shelvey Joelinton Saint-Maximin Wood Was seemingly wrong about Dummett being chucked straight back in, but he'll have had plenty of training.
  15. From today's presser for anyone unable to watch, I'll write up some of the good bits while on me lunch: • Very pleased with Wood signing due to the fact he's experienced and ready to play. He brings something different to what we have and he was Howe's first choice because he's always been an admirer of tall, physical strikers that can provide a platform for the rest of the team to play. Last week against Cambridge we were crying out for a Wood type, who'll also be important in both boxes on set pieces. He knows the league and nothing will surprise him. He's hugely motivated to pla
  16. No checks at all against Cambridge, as far as I could see at least.

    For some context: https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/transfers/saisontransfers/statistik/top/plus/0/galerie/0?saison_id=2021&transferfenster=alle&land_id=&ausrichtung=Abwehr&spielerposition_id=&altersklasse=&leihe= and https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/transfers/saisontransfers/statistik/top/plus/0/galerie/0?saison_id=2020&transferfenster=alle&land_id=&ausrichtung=Abwehr&spielerposition_id=&altersklasse=&leihe=. It's definitely inflated, but it's easy to understand why. His market value based on these fees does seem to be more around the £

    £46m doesn't seem too mad for Botman, does it? Think it's always been said they want about £50m.
