    How did you seem to know about Manolas a week or two ago out of curiosity?
  2. Transfer Talk Topic

    That's a shame, not sure he'll like the Championship.
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    Anyone seen or heard anything of substance behind the Alex Teixeira talk?
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Probably a question of semantics but I suppose he has to dismantle teams a little or it's hard to suggest he builds a new one. That being said, you'd be hard pressed to find an actual example of this being a bad thing.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Good post.
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Juventus keep talking about building their team around Pogba but given he's almost definitely going to go next season, if not this, and they've had so many changes already it doesn't make much sense. They're guaranteed one transitional year and if they spend it building the team around Pogba they're guaranteeing themselves two transitional years. Pogba's value is unlikely to go up by much this year either. It doesn't make much sense to hold onto him.

    Is nothing happening or has the site crashed since we signed Pogba? Edit: Ah, right.

    If he'd been hiding away at Espanyol there'd be more reason to worry but if you're a Catalan getting as many games as he has done at Barcelona then you just don't leave. They tried quite hard to persuade him to stay but he's manned up. Doesn't mean he'll be any good but there's no reason to think mentality will be the issue.

    Beasley was taking the piss with Pogba and followed up with something like 'Well, two out of three ain't bad hahaha'. So, Stones might not be a million miles away but Pogba certainly still is.

    Where have you got that figure? I've seen it reported as £36.5m. I've not seen anywhere near enough of either to have an opinion one way or another. Have you really?
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    It would not.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    Are you implying these things are contradictory?
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    We were level on points early in the second half of the season only to pull away to win comfortably.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    I doubt we could offer Cambiasso the playing time he'd want. This is wishful thinking but do any high level AMs anyone can think of wear number 23?
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    £22m seems just about his supposed buyout clause depending on what rate you're using.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    I know Traore isn't exactly an academy product but if him and RLC get meaningful minutes this season then it is still a big(ish) step in the right direction. Much better that than a stack of youth players sitting around with hardly any minutes between them. Does still leave the squad looking short though.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Because Turnbull.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    No author regurgitating Beasley's article 12 hours earlier - the same Beasley assuring everyone on Twitter that the club are looking at marquee signings. All completely worthless.
  19. New Stadium Plans

    As things stand it's not the club's to sell - vaguely remember reading somehwre there was no plan to change that either.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    We need to sort this out - not long ago we sold the Russian Ronaldinho and now we're about to lose the Egyptian Messi too!
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    He might not be a disaster but that probably depends on how much we have to call on him. I hope he surprises me and I will support him. (Since we're talking about mandatory prefixes this will probably have to be the mandatory suffix to any and all posts related to third choice strikers).
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Who would deny him an insanity defence?
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Our budget should be much larger this year, we're well within FFP. As for Ramos,I don't think he and Mourinho were the best match - CBs that fancy themselves aren't JM's favourite players.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/11600297/When-does-the-transfer-window-2015-open-and-close.html There might come a time to throw arms up in the air at the failings of this transfer window... Maybe not yet though. (Not that I agree with selling Cech to Arsenal - awful decision if true).
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunity_cost Millions spent and second or third striker slot taken up. Of course it makes a difference to the team and by association most people here. Maybe not you.
