Played the first two PL games for WHU.  If he plays tonight he isn't waiting for a move.  Maybe someone else.

Rumours that West ham want Rudiger in the papers today. 

Rudi plus money which they covet and they'll soon crack.

We simply have to go and get Rice before the window closes. We will have to pay over the odds, unless we can throw in a player in the deal.

I’ve mentioned before, I don’t think he is a great player, but he is the right fit for what the club needs. It needs leadership , it’s needs someone happy to let the play develop in front of him. Someone with the ability to plug gaps and add some steel into this team.

Long term he will end up playing CB and helps solve that issue , but we just need to force this deal through now for this season.

 

 

Agreed. Rice would be a very welcome addition. But £80m..?

It's a sellers market unfortunately.

Can he or should he play in defence? Again playing a player in a different position and not playing him to his full potential is that what we really want to do? Rice is amazing in the Kante role I think even better than Kante himself. You would deprive him of his ability to bring the ball forward and tackle any opposition with the ball if we confine him to central defence. Again I'm not sure if he's the right one if we are looking to fix our defence more than midfield.

I'd be refusing to play for SFL if he offered me to WHU.  I'd be effing livid so imagine what Rudiger would think!

Rudi, Barkley, RLC, Alonso + money. Who would say no? Clear deadwoods along the way. Problem solved.

We both know that’s not how it works. At best West Ham will reach out to Rudiger’s people first of all, before they even contemplate talking to Chelsea. 

The days of a manager offering players to other clubs are long gone.

Isn't that tapping up in the old days?

Tapping up is what Liverpool did with VVD. And then lied that they would not be pursuing him. But they weren't punished, were they?

Yes.  But even if it was conducted ‘by the book’ it’s certainly not Frank Lampard that they’re calling.
