It's clear we need a left back. What about that teirny from celtic?


1.) 22 Mar 2019 21:48:19
I'm always a bit suss about players from the SPL who shine in a league about equivalent to League One. Besides, a figure of £25M is being banded about. That's Ben Chillwell money and I know who I'd rather we spend that kind of cash on.

2.) 22 Mar 2019 22:55:39
True. But established players like chillwell go to man city. I think Tierney would be decent. Would be someone I'd get in. Got to be better than what we have surely.

3.) 23 Mar 2019 19:54:13
Your point is valid but I'm still struggling in all honesty.

Didn't we sign a "destined for great things" Scottish left back in the shape of Stephen Hendrie? That worked out really well for us. Not! He's part of my reluctance to sign Scottish players - especially ones being talked up by their club.

For every Andrew Robertson (who we sniffed around but didn't go for) There's a Stephen Kingsley. £25M is a lot to splash to find out we've bought the latter rather than the former.

I'd rather we looked at someone like Jamal Lewis who I think can easily make the step up and at around £4m looks a bargain.

4.) 24 Mar 2019 06:36:50
Yea get that mate. Spl is a dodgey league. There are some absolute gems in the lower leagues at a fraction of the price. We just need to find them lol.

5.) 24 Mar 2019 18:11:55
He plays for Celtic, not Hamilton like Hendrie who was a prospect. He's wanted by Arsenal and Man Utd, so won't be coming to us.

6.) 26 Mar 2019 20:52:25
hes a Celtic fan through and through aswell must be loving life playing for a club you support decent money and european footy every year.



02 Aug 2018 09:30:38
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.

Puts things into perspective the events of today. People moaning about stupid things when a young footballer has lost his life. Sometimes. in the grand scheme of things these disagreement s aren't worth it. these petty arguments just seem. well petty.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 08:08:38
Pilot, too.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 08:47:05
an another passenger.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 15:50:30
Such sad news. Thoughts to all families.



11 Jan 2019 20:34:56
I wonder what the point of contracts are. No player ever respects them.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 09:02:45
To make your player more expensive for other clubs.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 13:23:01
Just seems pointless in having a contract that they don't have to adhere to.

{Ed002's Note - That is why the transfer process exists.}



13 Nov 2018 22:14:40
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.

Exactly. When you spend those 7 mil plus wages on these players who will never really play . adds up.

Look . I think we should just let things be. There are worse things happening in the world. I understand your point ed and I can see that you care about the fans giving good info. I just think the way it's been handled has been poor. i'm sure everyone appreciates your input as it's always top notch. And the same goes for Mike. In my view you are both so valuable to the site and give us fans a great insight into what's happening with the club. we don't expect every post to be true but appreciate the effort you both make. Can everyone just move on from this and just show a bit of kindness.
