Any interest in Bale you reckon?

Seems to have a number of qualities you look for...

1. Whingeing
2. Past his best
3. Huge wage expectations
4. Over inflated fee
5. Injury prone.

WTF is our useless **** of a chairman up to?

less than a week to go and no centre-half, no replacement for Lukaku and God knows what will happen with Pogba if we don't sign a midfielder and Madrid come in after our window closes.

Fernandes seems tailor made for our needs, and is keen to come by all accounts, yet we're haggling over a few million quid, the same for Maguire.

Oh and Woodward only got back off his holidays last week. Let that sink in. In the middle of the transfer window, with major deals still needing to be done.

Sky are reporting Leicester have accepted the Maguire bid, £80m.


I take it back, just semi-useless.

Dare I say it

If we get two of the three that we're attached to now and we offload Lukaku and Smalling / Rojo then it's been a decent window for us.

My only niggle is that now we've spent £80m all of a sudden Pogba has picked up a 'knock'. So get ready for him to be off to pay back the Maguire fee.

As long as he goes in time to replace him.

And so it appears my crazy optimism was - as usual - entirely misplaced and we'll start the season with the same old donkeys as last year.

I should've known.

plus Maguire (hopefully)

Dyabla was a bit of a pipe dream, but I had hoped for Fernandes.

**** off Woodward.

Maguire confirmed, shirt number TBC, but guessing 5.

Is this the best we can do...we've had the whole summer FFS! An overpriced defender, a couple of 'want away' players we could have got good money for who we're inexplicably keeping hold of and a whole heap of average dross...I hope none of you are expecting anything better than last season!

...we are useless in the transfer market

...and we've STILL got Sanchez

Nothing will change while Ed 'Marbella' Woodward remains in charge of the transfers.

He needs to stick to the commercial and business side and get a director of football in.

I wouldn't be surprised if Pogba did one before the European windows shut, and then we're really screwed.

Our midfield needs a creative edge now, never mind if that happens, and we're a striker down, unless Martial and Sanchez somehow transformed over the summer.

I'm happy with the other signings though, we just need a couple of others in, and it'd be a very good summer.

That's what we did when Fosun took over. Sacked Jez Moxey and split his role into commercial and football with two different guys doing it.

Well, we look like the away team at the moment, Chelsea in complete control!

Who wanted to pay over £150m for him?

I hope he doesn't go now, not until January
