HI fellas, let's start with IHEANACHO WH hit with the news that Everton have already put in bid for 24m euros, there's plenty of interest in the player WH will have to top this lot which is unlikely because it's possible that Everton would be loaded with Lukaku funds, in addition to their transfer kitty. ADRIAN AND RANDOLPH, for differing reasons are happy to laeve, that's what the rush to RUDDY was about. Meanwhile Bournemouth have upped the ante on BEGOVIC, let's turn to DEFOE, who has been offered a three year contract by Bournemouth at 110k a week, throwing the gauntlet down to WH, frankly I cannot see them topping this, ONYREKU is a target BUT contrary to reports NOTHING has yet been agreed or stamped at this time, ZABLETTA now considering an alternative offer to WH, there are NO offers on the table for any WH players at this time, it looks like WH have dropped their interest temporarily at least in SIGGURDSON we shall have to wait and see if they are going to make a bid, the player may now stay at Swansea.

Thanks Mike. I try to remain positive and upbeat every transfer window in the hope that DGS/ Bilic have our best intentions at heart and every window it starts with such hope over players we target. Sadly, we've gotten into a bad habit of identifying potential targets and not following up fast enough because we mull, ponder, consider at which point the player agrees terms elsewhere! Is this to be the summer where things change? I would like to think so but somehow I fear a Leopard can't change its spots and we will end up with 33year old over the hill cheap bargains.

Hi Phil,

The only time I get interested in a transfer now is when there are reports that they are heading to the ground or where ever for a medical, I have have no confidence in how the board deal with such things, we are a joke in these windows and will be until a director of football is appointed or the 2 porn stars have hung up there strap ons and moved to where deluded washed up business men head when there time is up.

Yeah agreed Warrington and that's the feeling amongst the majority of our fans. We've seen how they operate and how they like a bargain rather than going after a target and sticking with it! But let's not forget that we did offer extortionate money for Lacazette, Or Did we? We are now being (as per every window) linked with Batshuyai, Iheanacho, Bony, ONYREKU and now Chris Wood from Leeds (who are very interested in Fletcher and Byram)! what's the betting we'll end up paying Defoe crazy money when we could get Iheanacho who is still only 20 and had 2 seasons in the premier league so he has experienced it and who will only get better.

Adrian won't be going anywhere he's just extended his contract which I like as he's a better keeper by far over Randolph but I'd make him understudy to a no 1 and that keeper is a toss up out of PICKFORD or BEGOVIC.
