Barca are lunatics, horribly run club. Don't get the continuing obsession with them and players still seemingly desperate to play for them, think their dominant Messi-era days could take quite some time to return. Their treatment of De Jong has been a joke.

 

Loved watching them during the 2000s. Enjoyed the Dutch connection there early 2000s, Rivaldo, through the Kluivert/Saviola team, to Ronaldinho, Eto'o, Deco, etc. Ever since they stuck a sponsor on them (which is fair enough tbh), they've acted horribly. Think my most hated action was them taking advantage of that stupid rule where they were able to buy Braithwaite outside of the transfer window because of injuries and it ended up relegating the club he joined from.

My first thought was... is there anyone we could get? :lol:

Is he still a Barca player? I know he went to AM on loan

 

If not then...

he has other options, with Newcastle tipped to try to pull off a shock deal for the former Manchester United man.

I said this earlier. He’s almost 30 but £30m we could get maybe 3 top years from him. He could help us bridge the gap to the next level up.  Zaha on the left. ASM on the right. Teams can’t defend either wing 1v1.  
 

High wages, poor resale value yada yada as reasons not too I guess.

He's on a hefty wedge at Palace isn't he?

 

 

Aye. 
 

also - I’m not sure he’ll even be interested. He doesn’t have 3 years to see how this project will unfold. And we won’t pay him much more than he’s on at the moment. 
 

If I were him - unless an actual top 6 side came in for me (or European level abroad) I would stay at Palace. If he’s available for free next season that gives him the greatest opportunity to play for an elite side and get an even bigger pay package.

Not that keen on Zaha to be honest. It seems as though the team has to be built around him for him to thrive, which is why no bigger team than Palace has tried to sign him in the last 8 years.

Everton and Arsenal both made serious attempts to buy him in fairness

Would be surprised if Dennis stayed at Watford. Whether it's us or another Prem team. Think he fits what we need perfectly and would certainly cost less in terms of fee and wages than Maddison or Werner.  

 

Can play wide forward as well as centrally, seems like a no brainer really.

Broja on the bench for Chelsea today. No Werner though...🤔

 

Werner would be great and I suspect he will leave but RB Leipzig seem to be in pole position for him. Certainly confirms he's off though if he's not even in the squad.

Howe (BBC) saying "we've a few weeks left to get the right player that'll make a difference for us"

 

So if he means 1 player I would be underwhelmed seen as I would like 2 more possibly 3.

That was my 1st thought too but perhaps he's indicating he wants one who's straight into the 1st team and perhaps, we can hope, another couple to be squad members. Perhaps one bought and a couple of loans? Anyway who knows, we just have to wait.

Wouldn't suprise me if we bought one and then used the loan market again.

Man United in for Sesko also.

He’s young enough not to remember the glory days. Maybe top young talent are no longer under the spell.  Ten years without a title. :thup:
