    One of our World Cup heroes. We would be honoured to have him play for us.

    That Modric bloke looks useful. Not sure who he plays for.

    Lema was signed by Benfica on a free transfer. Pusetto along with Juan Musso the young keeper at Racing have been signed by Udinese. So we could at some point see Pusetto depending on how well he settles and if he gets a chance to play.

    And depending on how well Javi's new tuning fork shaped "goalkeeper and only wide players" formation goes.

    The fact we didnt even compete with Juventus for Ronaldos signature shows a real lack of ambition by the club imho.

    Is that any different from Silva the Snake's forked tongue formation?

    I'm waiting fot the now legendary "out of the blue" signing that no one saw coming.

    Every year we are linked with a million different players, and every year we barely sign any of them and a complete curve ball signing appears from nowhere.

    Navarro. It’s already happened.

    I’m just glad we can all Rest In Peace knowing that Gray will be our starting striker this season. Scored yesterday, that’s one more than Deeney already and Harry Kane hasn’t even turned up for Spurs’ pre-season. Surest sign yet that the golden boot is coming home to Watford thanks to Andre Gray.

    Dedryck Boyata is in the last year of his contract at Celtic, and a few clubs including Fulham are supposedly sniffing around. I've not seen much of him to be fair, and he never really made it to a first choice CB at Celtic, but looked decent in the World Cup and at 27 should be coming in to his best years. A solution for CB?

    Belgians think he's pure *****, if it's any indication. Saw some who were annoyed he was going and not Kaba.

    Could use the 50 mill from Richie and try bring in Andre Schurle. Apparently he's wanted in England and they won't say who, but palace are the rumoured club. A World cup winner with bags of top PL experience that suits Gracia's style, inside forward rather than a wide winger. Could be a cheap deal too as Dortmund are looking to offload. Additionally, I think Danny welbeck wouldn't be bad business at 15mill and why not look at someone like Gary Cahill, seemingly on his way out of Chelsea but still a top professional CB.

    If we signed those 3, we’d be pushing adding another £400k to the wage-bill. Not going to happen. Cahill definitely not.
     
  21. lowerrous

    Cahill's wage would be too high.
    Schurrle is decent but I doubt we will sign another inside forward.
    Welbeck has been suggested before and is just about feasible, though I'd be surprised if it happened.

    With Chelsea signing Jorginho to add to Fabregas, Kante, Drinkwater etc and Sarri supposedly saying he wants to add more midfielders, wouldn't now be the perfect time to sneak up to Ruben Loftus-Cheek and whisper sweet nothings in his ear about how pretty he'd look in yellow and how playing alongside Chalobah might be good for his England career? Palace supposedly in financial turmoil so they could be out of the picture

    You mean....tap him up? We couldn’t!....could we?

    Hopefully these are the types of players we're looking at. Wouldn't mind Tammy Abraham too.

    Allegedly Fulham have bid for Willian Jose. Top striker when I've seen him. Misses quite a few but always in the right place.

    Tammy Abraham who couldn’t get in the Swansea team and looked poor when he did? Perhaps as a squad player, but I do not want him to be our new main striker.

    Well we are a bit short in midfield.

    Wellbeck and Loftus-Cheek would be very decent .
     
  29. Sort of OK

    Sort of OK First Year Pro

    It's all a bit frustrating, normally we are linked with 500 players who we don't sign but we aren't even being linked with many at the moment.

    I know the widely held belief is that if it is quiet then we are just about to announce a stunning transfer, in true Gino style, but at the moment I am thinking it is quiet because we are not close to anybody.

    I know it's the hope that kills you but I am longing to be linked with somebody who could score or stop a few goals, please.

    Okaka on his way, hopefully, Deeney or Gray gets a nasty injury we are proper f****d.

    As someone that also follows Celtic I have watched him loads of times and he has been fairly poor for Celtic to be honest. I think we could do better. Saying that I thought he would be a weak link in the Belgium starting team but he looked fairly impressive at the World Cup. Still not convinced though some of Celtics defending was woeful last season.

    Liverpool have put Divock Origi up for sale - reached double figures for them in his first two seasons there, then scored 4 goals in his first 9 games for a poor Wolfsburg last season, only for a new coach to join them and him to be pushed out on to the wing. Still only 23, though supposedly he's lost something to his game since an injury from a bad tackle a couple of seasons ago.

    Ings has also been made available, but I wouldn't want us to touch him as I suspect he'd immediately crumble to dust.

    Well he still scored more than any of our strikers. I was looking merely at potential. I believe it was over 20 the season before. Yes it was the championship but still impressive.

    Was that individual or as a collective? The Norwegian has seemed to of got very good press.

    Fair enough. As I say, I wouldn’t mind him as a squad striker to replace Okaka for instance.

    I know it’s been mentioned before, but Dembele from Celtic would be well within our budget. I’d be very happy to see us go for him.
