Unnamed young Portuguese CB being linked with us?

Iron.Al94

1.) 05 Aug 2019 12:21:01
Goncalo Cardoso, 18, highly rated youngster who's been on the radars of Inter, Lazio, Benfica and even Watford. He only made his top division debut in October but has easily established himself in the Boa Vista squad. Could be a really shrewd signing this one.


2.) 05 Aug 2019 17:20:00
i think investing in youth is a gamble but a gamble worth takeing. Ok it could be that he doesn't make it but look how many Premiership clubs have paid 25+ mil. for strikers thet don't make it. My vote is go for him.


3.) 05 Aug 2019 18:10:57
He could turn out to be another Rice.


4.) 05 Aug 2019 19:27:36
Albian ajeti.


5.) 06 Aug 2019 10:07:19
I hope we get Albian - he is another good, young player. Don't know how he will do in the prem but is worth a punt.


6.) 07 Aug 2019 23:04:43
I'd rather that JOHN than investing in washed up 33 year olds which we always did before i.e ARBELOA EVRA, and many more CARDOSA cost apparently £2.75 mill that's the sort of gamble I like. COYI.

Sky will run a story tomorrow claiming we are returning with an improved payment structure. Heard it here first.

Iron.Al94

1.) 10 Jul 2019 08:59:26
Maxi gomez deal is off because a certain person who has not been heard lately is pulling the purse strings . Instalments got his name all over it.


2.) 10 Jul 2019 09:13:35
Get a few more punters having a flutter on us at Skybet before it's confirmed that Valencia have signed him.


3.) 10 Jul 2019 12:04:36
Bonzo on this occasion I think that is a little unfair. I’m not sure they have 40 mill in their back pocket to pay in one go and so many European deals are based on structured payments. I think more to this than we will ever know but probably we were always trying to get someone from a distant second.


4.) 10 Jul 2019 13:32:48
The Sun are reporting we finally agreed to pay all up front but Celta liked the idea of Mina in px, I’m sure we will never know the truth.


5.) 10 Jul 2019 16:56:15
Stubbo a bit unfair mate. I think DGS have stumped up a fair bit of money on players lately. The fact that we offered instalments is not unheard of. If we only needed to buy a single striker it would have been doable. The fact we need at least two that will cost us a minimum of £80m for top quality strikers and having already spent £24m on Fornals with a back line that also need strengthening limits them. Clubs need billionaires now not multimillionaires.

I fail to see what you’re grumbling about to be fair.
Mid I was DGS I would have sold the club and walked. They get nothing but criticism from the fans. Short memory mate. They covered out debt and kept us afloat when we were close to collapse when the Icelandic’s took over. Be thankful we even have a club mate. We could have ended up like Leeds, Bolton, Portsmouth.


6.) 10 Jul 2019 22:19:01
Iron. al94. You were spot on about sky sports mate. 😂😂😂.


 

 

07 Jun 2019 15:10:27
We are being linked with Joan Jordan again any truth in these rumours ed?

I like him I'd actually prefure him over Gomes, the price being quoted seems fairly low too.

Iron.Al94

{Ed002's Note - My notes say: Joan Jordan (CM) Sevilla are keen for the player to make a move this summer who has been watched by Arsenal, Valencia and West Ham.}


1.) 07 Jun 2019 19:51:08
Cheers ed :-)


 

 

29 Apr 2019 03:00:57
Any truth in the links to Dani Ceballos?

Iron.Al94

1.) 30 Apr 2019 08:41:55
We definitely need a strong box to box midfielder as Noble and Snograss are to slow both would be very good squad players and very reliable when needed.


2.) 09 May 2019 19:54:42
Bang on KING68 everything I support on noble and snodgrass. COYI.


 

 

05 Jan 2019 16:06:12
Would happily see perez and Carroll go providing we can get 1 quality st replacement. Probably too much to do for a January window if we can get rid of one then at least releases wages to strengthen in midfield.

Would love us to go get another quality striker if we are going to play 2 up top Silva should be ahead of perez in the pecking order for me he should go he's definitely got to be the first out of the door to make room for another.

Crap performance dominated physically but point on the board and almost snatched 3.

Iron.Al94

1.) 18 Aug 2019 11:34:41
We have one point more than we had this time last season. Brighton are a well organised physical unit, therefore a point gained.

One worry, Haller being injured in only his 2nd game.


 

 

10 Aug 2019 14:51:33
VAR OUT! We looked good first 30 minutes not all doom and gloom.

Iron.Al94

1.) 10 Aug 2019 15:08:43
That’s because they were sizing us up for 30 minutes. Then they decided to switch gear and pumped us. Cress and Wilshere worst players on the pitch.

Fredericks had a blinder, lanzini played ok, Haller did well with what he got given, looks a class player but had nothing around him.

City are absolutely quality, and they will do that to a lot of teams this year, just unfortunate it had to be us on the first day.

Lots to do!


2.) 10 Aug 2019 15:10:42
I agree, first 30 mins we were ok
Why was Antonio taken off he was an
attacking outlet for us that allowed city to
push more forward.
Rodri even tho good needed to be carded
for constant fouling
Thought Haller and Fornals were ok
Our season won’t be defined by that game
crap start to the season tho.

{Ed001's Note - Antonio was injured. All 3 subs you made were due to injury. Though I know it is a shock that Wilshere picked up an injury.....}


3.) 10 Aug 2019 16:02:01
5 nil was flattering let's be fair agueros pen was awful just a shame rice got caught out with VAR for the retake. haller got absolutely clattered clear foul leading to one of there other goals was hoping they would bring it back and review it but no.

Sterling's second contentious off side looked more clear off side than the first but i think balbuenas backside played him on although I would like them to highlight when the ball actually leaves the players foot if we are talking millimeters that should be focused on to maybe it is but they didn't show it. Whole thing could have been avoided if fabianski didn't kick the ball to their player about 20 yards out.

Ederson had to make 2 good saves when they were just 2 nil up if one of those goes in it's going to be a differnt game.

City were hardly comfortable first 30 we just needed to be better in the final pass. Which they were and often are, need a team like that to have a serious off day but they were on it and made us pay. Again 5-0 looks bad but it's not as bad as a lot of people are making out.

Also the difference is a lot with accumulate fouls those players seem to know how to walk that tight rope between making multiple fouls with out getting carded. Even the way jesus won the pen was a skill. Maybe diop could have got away with it if he just stood without the unnecessary leg flick.


4.) 10 aug 2019 23:36:35
everyone saying it would be good time to play city i had to laugh as no time is good to play city unless sterling, both silvas, ginger kev, mahrez, aguero, jesus, sane, fernandhino, rhodri, foden, laporte, walker, cancelo, gundogen, are injured then maybe it would be good time to play them. coyi.


 

 

22 Jul 2019 11:04:56
Obiang out - Pulgar In
Hugill out - Morelos and or en nesyri in.
Ogbonna and or Reid out - Maripan in.

Hernandez could also go to help fund this rather than pay his huge wages and him going on a free at end of the season. Both morelos and en nesyri are young and hungry think they would offer more than chich he seems like abit of luxury which we can't afford.

Then that gives us the season to look at full backs and replace cresswell and zaba. We would have 3 solid CBs in maripan diop and balbuena. Ajibola Alese can be 4th choice or Rice could cover there if he isn't ready just yet.

Anyone else be happy with this? Probably not going to happen but it sounds a sensible way we could improve the squad with quality and youth.

Iron.Al94

1.) 22 Jul 2019 16:44:25
It would be nice iron but tbh I'm guessing that apart from maybe one more deal any others will be freebies.


2.) 22 Jul 2019 18:13:55
Looks good to me, Iron.


3.) 22 Jul 2019 20:16:40
I would get shot of Chica, Ogbonna, Reid, Obiang, Hugill and maybe Cresswell!

Would rather play youth players than any of the above as they are all finished jn my opinion.

Im in agreement with some if you thiugh as I don't reckon there will be any more big money signings.

ED02 any inside info on anything more happening or is it as good as it gets. Decent summer though for transfers!

{Ed002's Note - Real Valladolid are working on getting sponsorship from Mx and US to cover Chico’s wages. If that happens he will go.}


4.) 23 Jul 2019 02:43:33
So if Chicha goes surely we must be lining up someone else to come in. Getting late in the window though.


5.) 23 Jul 2019 10:19:23
Interesting! We need them to work faster!


6.) 23 Jul 2019 22:22:31
We need a quality C/ DM or a box to box midfielder because if we get a few injurys early in midfield we will be woefully short and relying on NOBLE, SNODGRASS, CULLEN, well they IMO ain't up to the quality weare aiming for. COYI.


 

 

10 Jul 2019 21:37:44
Crazy how awful our striker signings have been over the years.

Personally think due to the neglect of strikers we've had we deserve both Haller and Gomez up top with Anderson and fornals behind them with rice and wilshere controlling the midfield.

Iron.Al94

 

 

09 Jul 2019 23:31:53
Considering we only have Hugill and Hernandez as our strikers and both have been linked away from us it would be nice to see us moving for other strikers as we need more than 1 in.

Wouldnt trust the sky reports but I think next few days we will see something more concrete. can't see why we would go through all this trouble to let the deal fall through over the payment structure unless celta were being completely unreasonable which I could understand as we seem desperate.

Can Ed shed some truth on supposed developments? I'm starting to have thoughts of hugill starting up top against city first game of the season.

Iron.Al94

{Ed002's Note - I have provided the list that I am aware of again.}


1.) 10 Jul 2019 10:54:17
Hugill is not even going to asia with the team, so guessing they are trying to get rid.
Ed, do we have a chance at getting Haller?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


2.) 10 Jul 2019 16:04:14
Shame! Thanks.

No doubt any interest would have been worth peanuts at least this way he has the chance to play well and increase value or prove further we were sold a lemon.

@die-4, I just posted something similar on the banter page. I think Reid and Oggy are both past it.

Pulgar I believe would be perfect for us him and Rice would make a solid partnership. Ball winner with a great range of passing. Wonder if there is any genuine interest in him? Like you say would also three up Rice to cover CB we wouldn't miss him as much in the middle if we had pulgar as opposed to just Noble and Sanchez as DMs.

African player you mention may be Youssef en-nesyri. Think exwhu employee mentioned him or seen a news article. 4-5m seems low maybe as upfront payment then lots of add ons. If we make up the majority of the valuation with performance based add ons that would suit us nicely the better he performs the more rangers get and less risk for us.

I don't believe the c&h article about us having nothing left. If the right deals become available we will find the money.

We might still get a decent amount for obiang but based on what I've seen I'd feel more confident of him coming on rather than Sanchez he never seems to no what's behind him. That cost us points last season when he did play and seeing the same in preseason now doesn't fill me with confidence.

Business not done yet the fact we are being linked to players early to mid twenties is refreshing bodes well for the future makes a lot more sense than how we have conducted business in the past.

Morelos for being quite small and quick definitely makes his presence known I think he would be a big hit with the fans. I watched his highlights 3 minute video for all 30 goals and then a 17 minute video for all his cards to be fair a lot of his cards and sending offs were soft and poor decisions a lot of the decisions would rule in his favour with VAR. Just seems there was abit of an agenda with him. I'd definitely take a chance on him his fight and graft would endear him to the fans and can clearly finish He would be good cover and or a partner for haller that could be a fierce combination.

Mausuaku solid again today brings the ball out of defence brilliantly linking play with Anderson, lanzini.

That was the best Anderson has played in a while, Lanzini getting back to his best. Haller is quality!

Noble and Rice solid in the middle.

plenty of reasons to be positive we were lucky maybe not to concede but also unlucky not to score a few more.

Wilshere constantly drew fouls and looked comfortable but yeah leaves a lot of the defending for rice.

Still no complaints for me close game can argue mausuaku would have got closer but cresswell was poor there but not many as fast as Walker.

Iron.Al94

{Ed001's Note - he also messed up every attack he got involved in and he draws fouls because he is mentally deficient and too slow to move the ball on.}
