So. I see we have had a 20 mil offer for Maia accepted? Is this the case Mike? Also, are we really after the 4portugeuse players?


1.) 02 Aug 2018 09:49:40

2.) 02 Aug 2018 10:52:51
Is obiang still going Mike?

3.) 02 Aug 2018 11:02:38
Didn't think I'd ever say this but. well done dgs. If we get these 5 more players must be looking at close to 200 mil right?

4.) 02 Aug 2018 11:54:51
Maia is ON the Forward most wanted is Gomez however talks still ensue with Marega Brahimi Joao Mario Laxalt we have made bid for Joao Felix you must all appreciate it changes all the time so we shall see, OBIANG can still leave AFTER the window closes if he His to Sampadoria we are desperate to get rid of Oxford. IRONMIKE.

5.) 02 Aug 2018 12:21:56
Maia must be the priority. Another goal-scorer would be great, but we must toughen up our defensive mid to release Wilshere and Noble’s creativity.

6.) 02 Aug 2018 14:41:00
Yes that’s the idea. IRONMIKE.



08 Jun 2018 22:08:21
The problem with zelling for so much. other teams will see us to have money and them up their own prices. Keep Arnie and invest what we have whiskey. We could try to replace him but are we sure we could?


1.) 08 Jun 2018 22:14:02
Selling him is a big mistake in my opinion. Sets a precedent that one good season and then we will just sell our best players.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 22:41:49
they coming back with £65mill?
look at it this way-we started with £75mill
we fixed rb
we buy a pacy winger which we need-anderson
buy a great cm which we need-rafinha
sign another great cm as a free-wilshire
we addressed 3 key postions and still have the original £75mill
and we have hernandez waiting in the wings to start up top
so £75mill left for 2 cbs and a keeper.

3.) 08 Jun 2018 22:42:37
or another way
sign lacazette for around £40mill and sell arnie for £65mill
are we any weaker?
yet have an extra £20mill in the transfer kitty.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 23:01:34
that would be our two best players gone with lanzini's injury. arnie was unplayable up top for me and when was the last time we had a top all round striker pace power skillful, can create link play and can make his own chances too.

now if they want him that much we know they have silly money 65m sterling minimum.

I would take Rashford In a deal though he's been well underplayed by mou and it wouldn't be the first time he's got rid of young talent for them to become great players ie De bruyne.

maybe we could nab one of there cbs too as need major strengthening there too.

5.) 09 Jun 2018 06:30:05
Would arsenal sell us lacazette for 40 when they know we got 65 for Arnie? Doubt it. And also. who says no would get the extra 65? We know what dgs are like.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 07:58:36
I would ask has Lacazette impressed you? Would he or hernandez do what arnie does? We would 100% be weaker without him. This justs sets a bad precedent we don't need to sell our best player he is not at this point 'forcing' his way out he isn't near end of his contract. We should be putting a much higher valuation or just saying 'no thanks man utd'

7.) 09 Jun 2018 09:24:30
If rather go for dembele at Celtic if we are going for a striker.

8.) 09 Jun 2018 10:00:05
We were lucky NOT to get relegated and a lot of the reason was our Arnie, With Lanzini out, we will certainly struggle like STOKE did when they thought they could do without him This is 2 steps back to relegation. It takes time for new players to settle in, again remember Arnie in his first 6 games. let's change our our thinking and keep our best and get rid of the worse,

9.) 09 Jun 2018 12:15:29
Two things for me.

£65m for a 29 years old is a handsome sum to be fair. I want Arnie to stay but if we keep him and he loses his legs at 31 years of age like Rooney did, what we we get then? Money aside, I think even getting two years out of him would be worth keeping him.
Lacazette I believe turned his nose up at West Ham last time didn’t he? Why would we want him now and would he be committed?

10.) 09 Jun 2018 12:40:23
Lacazete is top class he hasn't been given enough game time he scored two goals in a game and was benched for the nezt his movement is superb and I would swap him for arnautovic that's my opinion. COYI.

11.) 09 Jun 2018 12:51:07
The board have to be really careful with selling Arni. If we sell him and then struggle next season like we did last season then their will be a riot. Putting themselves and profit before the the club's needs.

12.) 10 Jun 2018 07:03:45
Man U. will need to trim their squad, Mata could do a gt job for us. let's not forget JM sold him.

13.) 11 Jun 2018 12:16:43
Hiya RED ROBBO LACAZETTE is on a different planet to DEMBELE mate they are one a decent player and LACAZETTE is a world class striker. COYI.



17 Dec 2017 08:09:47
Mike. any truth in quina being sold next month?


1.) 17 Dec 2017 13:56:38
Hi dave I personally think Unlikely DGS look as if they are going to back Moyes requests and thoughts at both ins and outs, , Moyes is VERY pally with Tony Henry, and Henry thinks he has been put down over WH players and form previous to Moyes appointment;t, SO they are really scrutinising the squad. No question some are going to leave Now and in the summer ( Should we be safe ) ) Moyes is not particular about superstars he has a work ethic, and believes most of our squad ARE well up to the job But some are not , the players he wants may surprise a lot of our fans, but he doesn’t want prima donnas or spectacular signings, IRONMIKE.

2.) 17 Dec 2017 14:45:04
So, harry arter ish players?

3.) 17 Dec 2017 15:18:02
HES on top of the wanted list HOWEVER, will Bournemouth sell a very useful player in the winter and also to a. Club they may consider to be a relegation competitor? WH first enquiry only wasn’t well received IRONMIKE.

4.) 17 Dec 2017 16:32:50
A bit underwhelming, but could be what we need. Whos most likely to leave? Anyone we could get a decent fee for?

5.) 17 Dec 2017 20:36:37
I think sakho will leave. Personally I'd like caroll to go and for us to give Martinez a chance.

6.) 18 Dec 2017 11:59:46
If the sums going around regarding ARTER are true Mike then CARVALHO for another ten mill it's a no brained I know they play in different roles I don't think ARTER would improve our squad as we have players already at his ability we have to IMPROVE our squad not add to it with mediocre players in my opinion what's your view on ARTER Mike thanks mate. COYI.



10 Aug 2017 18:43:37
Mike, are wh after any cb at this time?


1.) 10 Aug 2017 19:11:39
Hey Mike,

Aside from Carvalho how many more signings do you see us going after? Would be nice to get another central defender before the window closes.



22 Jul 2017 16:05:31
Of we sign the players we are supposedly ready to sign. what do you think should be a realistic position to finish? I was thinking 10th. 9th or 8th.


1.) 22 Jul 2017 16:54:41
Single fidget finish be where we should be aiming.

Nice to see the premier league executive Scudamore is getting 250k from each PL that's after his 2.5 million salary. Makes you laugh really doesn't it.


1.) 15 Nov 2018 01:17:49
Scudamore is certainly laughing dave all the way to his next million hard life ain't it perhaps we could get some work like that and pull the sympathy card dave poor old dicky. COYI.

2.) 16 Nov 2018 17:12:49
I'd be lucky for £5 as a leaving gift.



22 Oct 2018 08:38:00
Remember at the start of the season. pundits were predicting us a top 8 finish. How times have changed lol luckily. I think there are 4 worse teams than us at present. We need to start buying smarter that's for sure.




28 Aug 2018 21:23:56
How embarrassing. A strong squad can't even beat Wimbledon. I'd say I was surprised. but we do this every year. 100 mil spent. laughable.

I'll try to remain positive lol.


1.) 28 Aug 2018 22:07:54
I thought we did ok to be honest, poor goal conceded but had the game under control for the rest of it, just need better finishing. Yarma think will be good when he gets match sharp. Anderson different class when he came on. Great finish by Diop.

2.) 28 Aug 2018 22:39:04
Really? We struggled against a league 1 team. Whether it was a poor goal is something of a habit lately. A poor goal conceded is still a goal. If we defended better we wouldn't be conceding these 'poor goals'. These strikers warning millions a year can't score. Under control? I'm sorry but you can have the game under control all you want doesn't mean you'll win it. Should be looking a class apart from these teams. I'm having serious doubts about this squad.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 09:32:02
Little teams are always going to be up for the big games, happens year in year out! All I am worried about is the business end and scoring goals which we seem to be unable to do at moment. It is difficult and maybe we should change formation but we do have to support the manager and see what happens, we have had a tough start of fixtures and come October hopefully we will be up and running.

4.) 29 Aug 2018 21:21:02
Hiya DAVE spot on mate can anybody say hand on heart with a full quota on the pitch we would have won that game last night because I don't and I'm sorry but it ain't good enough by a long way fact. COYI.



18 Aug 2018 14:07:11
Snodgrass starting? Yarmelenko on bench. doesn't make any sense.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 14:19:51
If ever I've wathe 2 championship clubs I just have Cardiff and Newcastle don't know whicheck ones worse.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 14:21:16
Have we got the right MP or is it his twin dave SNODGRASS really no improvement for me.



07 Aug 2018 04:55:12
I think this window has clearly shown that the WHOLE squad needed changing. The fact that we have got 8 signings and still in need of more shows how lucky we have been to stay up over the last few years. I think we will need To least another two windows to try to get a squad together. The last few years we have had some ok players but no squad depth. Hopefully MP can get a decent squad together.

This year will be tough again I think. We need to be realistic as our we haven't got a competing squad at the moment. First 11 looks decent but we all know we need more.

Let's hope we get a couple of cm/ dmf in before Thursday and embed some of the youngsters in slowly.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 09:58:48
Couldn't agree more hammerdave. I think we are still missing that Defensive midfield lock up player who will sit in front of the back four. The player we get has to have pace in order to cope with the fast breaks teams have. Denilo and Maia would be my preferred choice but we are also being linked with Drinkwater and Sanchez.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:02:16
Not too keen on Sanchez. I'd take any of the others. Danilo and Maia would be my first choice to be fair. I think Drinkwater would be good too.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 10:33:23
I'd be happy with a top 10 finish and a cup run this year, pellegrini is building a team and that takes time, some signings will work some won't that's what happens when you sign so many in a short space of time.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 11:00:28
Yea agreed robbo. Will take time and a few more windows. Just would be happy for a stable season lol.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 12:19:50
Can’t argue with that, but the most important thing is that the change has started and we’ve got an excellent manager in MP who really knows what he wants and how to go about it.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 14:50:32
You know what you're right. Mp does seem to know what he's doing. He seems very composed and his experience is talking for itself in what he's done.

Agree whorya. If players like evans was valued at 30 odd mil then these 2 players have got to be valued above 60. I wouldn't take anything if a bid came in. wouldn't get a replacement for them.

If they get relegated then I'd 100% go for him. Think it would be a wasted effort trying to get him whilst they're still in the prem. They wouldn't sell us there rvstar player.

Everytimee I read this it seems like you think everyone is against you when people just disagree.

Don't think anyone slags people off. they just have different opinions.

Antonio. shame I used to like him just not the same player.
