    You don’t improve by adding backup players for depth. You bring in first-11 ready players and allow competition to decide the starting selections. You’re moving forward if a new signing can displace a starting player, as that provides considerable opportunity for improvement over just a backup...

    Gareth Bale

    I do wonder if his contract with Adidas will play a part in any transfer. A team like United (sponsored by adidas) may get part of his wage subsidized if he were to go to them. Him not playing at RM is definitely hurting his brand's image.

    Gareth Bale

    I still see him as a game winner, something I feel like we still miss quite often. I would happily have him if it worked out, financially.

    Most top players will always believe in their talent and their ability to displace others and become a regular starter. Every top player has become such in part, because of their confidence.

    The Naming Rights Thread

    With all the discussion above about our attractiveness from a football side is being had, it must be brought up that the stadium itself is designed to be used for NFL games and other entertainment. There is considerable value in that. Hell, there is recent talk that Napoli and Liverpool may...

    I’m not saying it’s Levys fault, but that doesn’t change the situation. It’s all looking very negative right now.

    Getting the unrealistic players that Poch wants, just as he did with AVB.

    Most realistic outcome I see from this: Levy doesn’t cave and we get no one. We struggle to finish the season well due to a lack of depth. Poch’s team criticizes Levy over his not being backed. He goes to United. The media side with Poch as Levy has a history of transfer failures. The club...

    It would be Levy’s camp versus Poch’s in the media. How do you think that’d play out with Levy’s transfer history?

    Because it’s worrying. Poch may be happy but that’s because he’s in a no-lose situation. Either DL pays up on one of his players, or he gets to potentially leave in the summer with the excuse that he wasn’t being backed. Not reinforcing the squad now is clearly disadvantageous to the club...

    Timo Werner

    Jovic is complicated as he's on loan from Benfica.

    Timo Werner

    Really should. A Holtby situation would be ideal, too (agree a few for the future, then agree another fee for now after the initial deal is announced).

    Timo Werner

    That or he'll be purchased by Liverpool this summer.
