Deadline day today!

Any rumours of possible transfers or loans?

Haven't really heard of this guy from the Swiss league Ajeti, I suppose this could be one for the future maybe?

Would like to see us try and get another CDM-CM in before the window shuts as I think an injury to rice or wilshere we will be very light

Thoughts gents?

Apparently had the medical yesterday and will sign today

Meanwhile Diangana year long to the Baggies plus Cullen back to Charlton for the season will get good experience

For me this is 0ne of the best Windows for a long long time


08 Aug 2019 09:32:21
Apparently done as club annniunced :)

08 Aug 2019 15:41:08
Agree mercel it has be a good window, some good business and happy to see us bring in some youngsters to compete with the first team!

Fingers crossed it is a good season, top 10 is achievable in my eyes but other clubs like Everton Watford Leicester have bought well too,

I just hope we don’t have a serious amount of injuries like last season, that could really hurt us,
Bring on city 😩.

08 Aug 2019 18:23:13
Hi steve AJETI is ready for the 1st team now mate he's played in the champions league for basel and is a box striker which we need. COYI.

07 Aug 2019 08:52:32
C&H increasingly optimistic about Ajeti.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 11:07:33
Ex says the deal will be completed today.

{Ed002's Note - It will be a big step up.}

07 Aug 2019 11:47:02
Yes, I think so too, but you can only score against whoever you’re playing and his recent record is outstanding.

Failing Haller, or Chicha injuries, he’ll be the third option, but if he can be in the right place at the right time, our multiple attacking playmakers ought to give him opportunities.

He’s also of an good age (22) for MP to delevop.

07 Aug 2019 12:25:58
What's he like? Never watched or even heard of him. anyone shed any light on him?

{Ed002's Note - He has done OK and scored goals in Switzerland but I doubt he is moving as a regular started.}

07 Aug 2019 12:56:08
I just watched the video of him on C&H: looks very good in the air and scores equally well with either foot. I concede that the defences are Swiss League, but you’ve still got to put them away and the range of shots and chips looks very encouraging.

07 Aug 2019 13:17:55
Really liking our direction cardoso 18 ajeti 22 and the Stuttgart player who 22 very refreshing and a team who can grow together.

07 Aug 2019 14:07:53
Twitter is suggesting a done deal.
Ed002 is right, massive step up but still an improvement on Huggill.
Weirdly have a good feeling about him and Cardoso, both look very professional.

07 Aug 2019 16:55:39
Both Salah and Shaquiri came from the Swiss League. Fingers crossed!

07 Aug 2019 17:02:47
Mistley. whose the Stuttgart player? Been away on holiday for a while so missed quite a bit.

07 Aug 2019 20:26:00
eds just wondering if you have seen or know what cardoso is like? thanks.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't sorry.}

07 Aug 2019 22:49:39
I think you will all be suprised how well this AJETI will perform as SWISS football isn't as bad at all BASEL have always been tough to beat in home games of champions league now before you all shoot me down in flames I never said they ever looked like getting out of their group but always when I watched them they were decent.

08 Aug 2019 10:49:15
Ed 002,A YETI is BIGFOOT, not big step!

06 Aug 2019 18:08:07
Glen1540. What a surprise, another South American linked with us. Certainly seems that pellegrini has no interest in british players.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 22:04:13
Too expensive/ big headed unfortunately. We have Rice/ Johnson through from academy though, Alese and Trott are rated so hopefully see them in first action?
Hopefully a mix of foreigners and Academy players can help us through next few years?

07 Aug 2019 10:52:28
I know what you’re saying but they’re too dear - 80mill for Maguire seems bonkers to me! What I like about the players we’re getting now is that it’s looking like a much more fun team, both to watch and play in - surely this will help us to attract team changing players (like Payet was) to grow into the team we would love this club to have. Bring on the season!

07 Aug 2019 22:58:12
Three years ago I watched MCQUIRE playing for SHEFFIELD UNITED and 4 stone less and 3 or 4 years on if you told me he'd be an £80 million player I'd have suggested you needed sectioning as greavesy said it's a funny old game never a truer words spoken you just never know I would never had sad LAMP ARD would turn out what he did old fat frank . COYI.

06 Aug 2019 10:56:37
Rumours on twittter are that Cardoso has passed his medical/ ready to be announced.
Ascacibar 22 year old DM is heavily rumoured as well as Ajeti a swiss striker who has a 1/ 2 goal rate.
All are young and hungry. There has been a suggestion amongst twitter/ agents accounts that the 'we have no money left' line is a little bit of a smokescreen too. Exciting times ahead?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 13:08:39
I really hope so!

06 Aug 2019 17:57:38
Don't wait up.

06 Aug 2019 22:04:58
Haha, Gold has been joking all day on twitter the same.

07 Aug 2019 14:09:10
Ascacibar not looking likely according to twitter, shame as we could do with a spare CDM (not Sanchez)

07 Aug 2019 22:59:18
It doesn't suprised me when another £10 mill is suddenly made available.

05 Aug 2019 22:16:55
I see Adrián has signed for Liverpool. It really surprises me that we let him go and signed Roberto as a replacement. What I have seen on Roberto so far leaves me less than impressed. Adrián made the occasional clanger but Roberto looks like he’s liable to make a mistake every other game. Go figure?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 23:24:14
Did I read right €2.75 mill or €27.5 million what a steal if he signs good enough NOW for 1st team better than CRESSWELL by a country mile I'd be starting with JOHNSON or GCARDSO he can also play C/ B has a great left foot and can find a killer pass and crosses are great whoever sorted that deal can now take their mask off because we stole him at that price what a deal. COYI.

06 Aug 2019 01:55:22
Adrián did not want to number 2 goalie and wanted to return to Spain he has made his position clear over last 2 years. No teams were prepared to pay him anything like he was getting at west ham 50k a week he was getting offers of 15-20k a week.

06 Aug 2019 10:05:47
Cardoso has passed his medical apparently, lad is a proper steal - watched the u21 championships and he was one of the stars.
This looks like WH are finally pursuing the policy I have wanted for years, buy talent young *for cheap* at least when they do go, we get a highly inflated fee for them.

06 Aug 2019 11:35:51
But he will be number 2 keeper at Liverpool too right? So nothing has changed there. I’m sure that Liverpool would have paid the £50k per week. At West Ham he was on £50k per week anyway I’m sure, and my understanding was he wanted the same money.

06 Aug 2019 15:12:09
Yes but Spanish sides were only offering 15/ 20 k.

06 Aug 2019 16:26:42
What about the signing on fee Adrian would have also got, must have been an influence😂£😂Premiership experience although erratic at times
decent number 2 for Klopp👍👍.

06 Aug 2019 18:05:21
Good point about signing on fee Chelmsford👍
I think it just irks me that he left and we replace him with Roberto who’s been crap so far. I liked Adrian. I wish him well.

06 Aug 2019 20:01:54
COYI164, we are reading off the same sheet mate, what a shame, but money talks at that age especially, that’s his last big pay day so at 32 not knowing what’s in front of him, good luck Ad, really wish him well👍👍⚒⚒⚒.

06 Aug 2019 22:06:34
Think it is his last chance to win something + he can do a Rob Green if they win Champs League again :-)

04 Aug 2019 23:29:56
Unnamed young Portuguese CB being linked with us?

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

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.

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

05 Aug 2019 19:27:36
Albian ajeti.

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.

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.

02 Aug 2019 07:55:07
We must have some cash left with all the out goings
Anyone know were we stand
Like a striker defender and dm
I'm loving the way thinks have changed since MP has taken over tho.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Aug 2019 12:10:23
You would think we can only play 3 Of the fair players against the better teams so we definitely need a defensive midfielder with a physical presence and pace to help Rice otherwise we will get overrun big time, and we need a back up front man in the Haller mould then we're ready to go.

02 Aug 2019 18:46:38
If if if a player comes along either cf or CB without stupid wage demands aking with sky high signing on fees ( I am alluding to free agents ) then we may still get a player or two if not then it might be pull up the drawbridge and we go with what he have . I've a feeling that the pot for this window is about spent.

02 Aug 2019 21:07:50
Anybody else concerned that we have not
strengthened our defence or holding midfield
area as last season we got over run in both
these areas.
Our full backs are not great, Diop and Balbuenna
have been suspect on occasions, rice can’t
hold the midfield on own, Sanchez is poor,
noble is too slow .
I’m actually quite concerned for our season.

03 Aug 2019 01:04:40
Arp, not really. It is what it is, we are going for attack and following the Arsenal/ Liverpool way that was copied off us anyway. I really don't think we will hit top six but if we can play exciting footy, maybe have a cup run etc we will have set yourself for next year.
Just remember 2022 is the year the owners can sell - if we get the right buyers will be amazing but credit to the Dave's and finally getting a top quality manager in and leaving transfers to Husillos. Will take 3/ 4 years (whoever owns us) to be with any shout of regular top 6. Our straight rivals at the moment are everton, wolves and Leicester. Unfortunately we blew our load last year when this year Chelsea/ man utd are looking weak :- (.

03 Aug 2019 08:32:47
I understand what your saying glen, however
I don’t think we are clinical enough to outscore
our opponents as our defence is too weak.

03 Aug 2019 17:15:16
I agree with arp. LB and DM especially are positions we desperately need to strengthen, otherwise clean sheets are going to be few and far between for us this season.

03 Aug 2019 18:41:47
Defence is a big concern and something we must be looking at because we are poor especially down our left.

03 Aug 2019 18:43:53
Noble has never had pace, he reads the game, therefore he can be a move in front of the opposition. Sanchez struggles at Villa.

I feel Noble could play just in front of our centre backs.

Who will take penalties if Noble does not play?

03 Aug 2019 19:36:53
Noble always gives away cheap free kick just out side the edge of the box with late tackles.

04 Aug 2019 11:41:50
Haller took the penalties at Eintracht.

04 Aug 2019 20:35:43
Hiya ARP you ate spot on mate NOBLE SNODGRASS are far too slow at closing down opposition players in midfield and we get picked apart as they have far too much time to look up a few times before there's any sign of a challenge we are definitely 1 short in C/ DM and at the back if which we will get injurys as I hate players playing out of position. COYI.

06 Aug 2019 10:20:14
Get what everyone is saying *but* Wilshere can play DM at a push (although that is like relying on glass to stop a bullet)
The new signing Cardoso I have a feeling could be converted to a DCM.

01 Aug 2019 11:11:53
According to Sky American defender Aaron Long is back on the radar played 11 times for the USA and currently at New York at approx £4 maybe worth a punt but I did post about a month ago he might not be up to the PL. Correctly there appears to be a Work Permit problem

Does this mean Winston may have to retire and Oggy is on his way.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2019 11:47:53
Aaron Long would be nothing more than a back up and that’s IF he was able to get a work permit.

I don’t see us letting both Ogbonna and Reid go, so if Reid is retiring then Ogbonna is going no where. Same can be said if Ogbonna is sold I see Reid staying.

01 Aug 2019 13:09:04
id like to ask what ED and supporter think of Read now.
Before his injury i thought he was great but i havnt seen him this year, is his injury problems behind him and how is he performing.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen him since his injury and I think Diop and Balbuena have the places nailed down.}

01 Aug 2019 21:19:54
Before the injury he lost a lot of pace can’t sell him till he proves his fitness may need a loan to a championship side to get game him game.

30 Jul 2019 18:48:15
Ed. any news on any potential signings? Or any talks or even rumours? Not much happening at the moment. or are we done with the transfers?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new dave but I am travelling and busy right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2019 09:03:19
Ed a defensive midfielder with a physical presence is definitely needed a injury to Rice would put us in massive trouble.

{Ed002's Note - back up will not be the first priority.}

31 Jul 2019 19:26:01
Ed I mean a defensive midfielder to start with Rice or we are going to get over run Rice needs help big time I really hope we have some money left to get some one.

31 Jul 2019 21:32:40
Times running out. I hope we sign someone soon. but looks unlikely.

01 Aug 2019 11:41:48
Based on preseason, I get the impression Pellegrini is looking at playing 4-1-4-1 this season

Yesterday Rice put in a monumental shift for 60 odd minutes, didn’t play bad, but he was over run.

I think playing Wilshere, Lanzini, Fornals and Anderson in front of Rice is going to give us plenty of attacking threat, but seriously lacking defensively.

Just my opinion though.

01 Aug 2019 13:39:34
I agree DIE 4, I love the technical play those 4 can do when we have the ball, but when they lose it Rice is our only shield, and can get overrun. I like JW a lot, but I still don't think he is a deep lying playmaker, or a traditional CM. Like Fornals, he plays best in the transition area behind the opposition midfield line and behind a striker, occasionally coming BACK to collect the ball, rather than starting off deep.
Of the players in our squad, i'd play Snodgrass alongside Dec, or Noble. Snods is far more aggressive in the centre than Jack, and will be better at supporting Dec in breaking up opposition attacks. I know it's not Snods' natural position, but he has all the attributes to play there, and we have plenty of wingers with pace where he usually plays. Nobes is also good, but just lacks the legs for me, and Dec also isn't the quickest.
I have to put in a word for Sanchez, as I have previously said that he was not good enough or risky backup at DM. But yesterday I thought he looked very capable in the DM role. I just hope he can stay fit this season.

28 Jul 2019 05:08:35
Reading online Hugill off to QPR. for a season long loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2019 10:23:10
And I think we’ll still be paying some of his wages!

29 Jul 2019 00:40:45
Hopefully he does well as obviously we couldn’t find anyone who wanted to buy him. If we could have sold him it would have been better.

29 Jul 2019 14:31:43
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.
