So with the Chelsea duo and Wanyama being the only midfield targets mentioned (with the exception of Medel), are we looking to bring in a premier league proven midfielder in January? These players don’t come cheap at this time of year.


1.) 31 Dec 2018 16:31:56
How much is Medel going to cost and why the actual F ain't we all over the 5 years younger Elneny like a rash for only a million or so more?

2.) 31 Dec 2018 19:18:27
There's the over 30's we insist on buying every transfer window why oh f-----g why do we do it every time NASRI now MEDAL IMO well past their sell by date but we just can't help recruiting old players who are just looking for a final pay day I hope they both prove me wrong but I'd like a small wager that NASRI upsets a player or management team . COYI.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 19:42:04
The manager is the one bringing him into the fold. He knows him well and I’m sure he’s smart enough to know wether or not it’s a good idea.
Those at the club are a lot better placed and have the requisite knowledge to make the decisions needed. He’s something we need and he’s proven to produce it.

Who do you suggest we go for instead?

Give a kid a chance and hope for the best? Try someone from the championship for 10 plus million in this window?

At this moment in time it’s a no-brainer to take him.

4.) 31 Dec 2018 20:44:41
I'm sorry, but Gary Medel is a much better player than Elneny. Yeah, he's older but one of the best natural defensive midfielders around. I think it'll be a real coup for you guys if you get Medel. Peace from a Liverpool fan.

5.) 01 Jan 2019 12:37:43
Not sure about someone from the Championship - we’re still a bit stung by Hugill.

Nasri is an absolute no brainer on the six month deal, especially:

1. With our injuries
2. If his max salary is based on appearances and performance

As for other reinforcements, put our trust in MP and Husillos - if they want to wait until the summer, that’s fine. I still think we’ll finish top 10.

Alternatively they might pull a January rabbit from a hat.

All in all though, after the start we had this season, I’m just relieved at where we are in the table.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 23:22:07
Interesting about the Championship this time last year we were talking about Maddison but were told he wasn't worth the money and he went to Leicester look what's happened their in the end we paid nearly £10M for Hugill he hardly ever came off the bench let alone get a start now at Middlesborough and his hardly setting the world alight

Just shows what poor scouting does for you or is it good scouting but very poor decision making.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 08:19:18
Hi Merceri

I think Hugill was an insurance buy at the time, we were in not a good position and could have dropped, which as he was banging them in at the time in the Championship I feel we were covering bases in case.

Can Ed or Mike confirm or deny the news on Bradley Dack - 95% signed?


{Ed002's Note - I can confirm he was been watched.}

1.) 19 Dec 2018 13:15:12
Are we trying to sign Shelvey, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but a price was asked about for Danny Drinkwater.}

2.) 19 Dec 2018 15:45:38
It seems we are front runners for Bradley Dack and Andreas Periera and Nasri may be signing so how many midfielder are we offloading or is this spread betting?

3.) 19 Dec 2018 16:58:53
We will get medel, that will be it for midfield along with nasri.

4.) 20 Dec 2018 14:27:36
I agree with Irontodd, I expect Medel more than the others being touted about, as he can also play right back where we also need squad cover.
Drinkwater would be great as backup for Rice but he is on 126k a week at Chelsea! Far more than we can afford, and he still has 3 years on his contract i think. So unless a loan is possible with Chelsea paying over half his salary then i cannot see it happening.
Ive not thought of this before, but with all the old interest in Obiang from Italy (plus his desire to go back there), maybe we ARE in the market for another CM in December, which would vindicate the rumours around Bradley Dack.



16 Dec 2018 15:04:12
Mike what’s the chance of us signing loftus cheek from Chelsea?


1.) 16 Dec 2018 15:55:42
Chelsea are VERY very reluctant to l part company with him that’s the problem, there is a small chance of a loan albeit very small WH would love him, IF Chelsea would part. They would want. Around. 28/ 30 m IRONMIKE.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 19:59:22
I’d say pay the money! Exactly what we need.

3.) 17 Dec 2018 09:00:26
RLC is exactly the type of player our midfield is missing true box to box player and an eye for goal too, if we could get Pereria too then that is a very competitive midfield with good passing and skill.

IRONMIKE any chance we are looking at Denis Suarez at Barça too?

4.) 17 Dec 2018 14:14:43
It looks, from reports, that MP is impressed with Nasri in training. On a free and on an initial six month contract, it’s a no-brainer.

If we do sign him, then I can’t see any other midfield additions in January. It would be great to have Pereira, Almiron and Loftus-Cheek in the mix, but having spent so much in the summer.



04 Aug 2018 10:22:37
Mike do you know if Pellegrini wants another left back?


1.) 04 Aug 2018 11:10:47
I doubt that we are done in the market IRONMIKE.



16 Jul 2018 08:45:17
What happened to the Mina bid?


1.) 16 Jul 2018 09:49:50
Not the Mynah bird?

2.) 16 Jul 2018 12:38:37
Our two latest defenders diop and balbuena are not only good defensively but can also play a bit too which i don't think we've had for a while ogbonna as back up will do.

3.) 16 Jul 2018 13:50:33
Would it be worthwhile going for DAS BOST who is available on a FREE I believe from SPORTING? This would finish our forward line of nicely and give us a very scary attack.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 13:52:04
Any news on bernard anybody?

5.) 16 Jul 2018 15:01:06
As in previous messages from the eds and i'm - Das Bost is not available on a free, compensation would still be required.
Good shout though, especially if the Carroll to Besiktas rumours are true.

6.) 16 Jul 2018 16:08:55
He is a beast and scored goals everywhere he has been. At this rate how is our first 11 looking for next season. Will Kouyate, Obiang and Ogbonna and Noble still get a game or be used as squad players.

So mike are we interested in any of Mitrovic, jovic or Wilson to replace arnie?

Also who is the top target to replace him?


1.) 13 Jan 2019 18:37:47
Job If would be perfect replacement for aurni.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 19:56:43
Callum Wilson has a lot going for him, BUT firstly I just can’t see him coming to us, and secondly Bournemouth are quoting Astronomical money around 60m and lastly he’s not a physical presence, IF indeed that’s what we want, THERE ARE a few options, it depends wether we are going in for a replacement now or in the summer. IRONMIKE.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 20:17:24
Moussa marega?

4.) 13 Jan 2019 23:31:50
He would be on my short list for sure, just the job for us. IRONMIKE.



05 Jan 2019 01:32:36
Pony tailed player mike?


1.) 05 Jan 2019 10:43:12
Carroll/ Vida.



09 Aug 2018 22:57:39
What will happen with Edmilson Fernandes this year with all those players in front of him?


1.) 10 Aug 2018 10:04:40
He’s off to Fiorentina on loan with option to buy in the pipeline IRONMIKE.



30 Jun 2018 12:39:48
So what exactly happened in this 5 way meeting then Mike?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 13:31:54
Nothing I believe shark, still more horse trading to be done in this one mate.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 18:14:52
We might be better at trading horses! IRONMIKE.



19 Jun 2018 21:32:58
