Any truth we're actively scouting John McGinn from Hibs? Hope not - bang average SPL player, not what we need at CM if we're to have a better season next term. Mind you, he'll be cheap. The entire Hibs squads only worth £9M.

Would prefer getting that midlothian nipper harry cochrane looks like he will have a bright future ahead of him only 16 though I think. Looks good for the level he plays at for how young he is.

Might be hearts can't remember.

Actually ain't that the same team? Lol.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah it's like West Ham and Millwall, people outside the area find it hard to tell the difference between all the small clubs in London.}

hahaha, ouch eds you've really hurt my feelings I so sorry don't really watch much of the spl I prefer to watch the southern football league pd.

{Ed007's Note - I don't watch much of the English Pub League myself, Noel. Burnley v Huddersfield and Watford v Bournemouth isn't exactly the pinnacle of the beautiful game.}

fair enough just the local team to support and help out with as and when I am able to. the funding isn't really much.

I'm hearing that Fernandes is injured with a broken foot? Any truth at all?

Tricky one this. 6 goals in 32 PL games last season and none in his last 13 appearances doesn't smack of a £30M quid footballer - But I've had a look back and some of his performances last season and there are signs he could become a very, very decent striker.

I'll be honest and admit I was very underwhelmed when there were rumours about him a few weeks ago, but after a rethink, his age and potential, in hindsight make him a shrewd move.

Hopefully Chelsea are willing to play ball and we can get him without any of their daft sell-on or buy-back clauses.

Can anyone pour cold water on the Michael Keane rumours?

Please!

Therein lies the problem. To get a 15-20 goal a season striker you've got to pay 15-20 goal a season money.

The fact that the last West Ham player to score more than 15 Premier League goals in a season was Paolo Di Canio (16) in 99/00, really highlights the issues we've had with striker signings over the last 2 decades. Not sure it's a conundrum that's going to get solved this window either if I'm honest.

I'd avoid the Ox like the plague. Liverpool have disguised his injury tendencies by only playing him for 787 minutes this season. We'd be paying him £100 odd k a week to mostly lie on the treatment table. No thanks.

I suspect Chelsea have over valued Broja in the hope they can make a decent few quid off of his sale - should the choose to sell him that is. I've said elsewhere that I don't think he's anywhere near a £60M pound striker and 6 goals in 31 PL games kinda backs that up.

I know he's only 20 but it's huge money to be risking on a player that could just as easily be the next Mido rather than Aguero.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have not placed any value on Broja.}

Seeing that Chelsea may be making moves towards Rice again, this time using Broja as an overly expensive makeweight, and then, to further dilute Rice's value they want to throw in Ross Barkley as well!

No idea how much they consider Ross Barkley to be worth but I'm willing to wager it'll be a ridiculous valuation. If they want Rice, pay the money first, THEN we'll talk about Broja.

We really don't want to be getting in to any deals for our best player that involve any kind of makeweights - especially when one of the players mentioned, Chelsea are just itching to bin off because he's a busted flush.

Big risk imo. 30 in a couple of months and ok, he can score in an inferior league but we've no idea that he can cut it in the PL.

All of his goals bar 2 v Strasbourg last season were against teams mid table or lower half of the French League and none at all against a team in the top 5. Not convinced we should be taking a punt on him for the next at least 3 years tbh.

Bowen is in the new kit reveal but as you say Rice is not. It is worrying and a little bit insidious that the club captain doesn't make an appearance. Let's just hope that when the window slams shut Declan is still a WHU player.

Honestly though, if I were a scout watching Adama Traore then I wouldn't even have to bother looking at his stats to make a decision on him.

There's a very good reason Villa, Middlesbrough and now Wolves got/want rid of him and that reason is he'll never make the grade at the highest levels.

Why Barcelona loaned him is beyond baffling (A bit like Fauberts' adventures with Real) but are they triggering the signing clause? No. No they are not and that kind of speaks volumes even if they are using the "we are skint" line.

Think we're going to agree to disagree on Traore Chelms, I just don't see him as a player that would bring any improvement whatsoever to the squad.

Watch him end up at Leeds and monster it this season! Still, I'll stand by what I say, he's just not good enough for us to be taking a risk on.

Surely stats are one of, if not THE most important reason a professional football club is attracted to a player in the first place?

That said, it does seem that the club has been following the model of getting players in just for the sake of getting players in and not really paying much attention to their previous performance statistics.

We've had a lot more misses than hits in the old transfer department in the past and imho, signing Traore would just put another big old tick in the miss box.
