See? Then we get all sorts of nutters with their own grudges complaining about this source and that source :D

I'm sure there are people with axes to grind about the owners of other newspapers, may as well close it all down.

We can't win.
I don’t care about Dicky himself, runs a good charity and knows how to move product. However, the Express and the Star are dogshit. At least with the Times and the Sun, there’s a Chinese wall between them when it comes to transfer guff but the Express and Star will use one another to substantiate their own BS, predominantly to drive clicks

@THFCSPURS19 but if I ever need a media whore (and I might), it'll be you. A long long time ago we had 'Rumour Rangers' who had badges next to their name and everything, going around whoring for rumours, if we did something like that (mediawise) you'd be my go to guy. As long as I can think of a suitable humiliating name :p

You saying you're not a nutter? :cautious:

Strong fast versatile stacker who can okay on either flank, down the middle, or up front. Blessed with skill and a very driven player. Not been bad at PSG but equally has not quite delivered.

Very similar story to Lucas Moura. I’d love him, and with him, Son and Lucas we’d have an abundance of fast skilful wide men in their prime, so a fourth young one like Clarke would be far more viable too.

Talking about offering €30m for him as P$G need to raise the money for FFP by the end of the month so I think there is a bit of a fire sale...

I think Draxler at Schalke was class, maybe not as much at Wolfsburg, but clearly good enough to get a move to Paris! I have been impressed with him there tbh, I would much rather have him in the squad than Lamela.

If you sold Lamela and Eriksen and replaced them with Lo Celso and Draxler, then N’Dombele added there too, that is a truly frightening midfield and forward options, giving us 3 quality options in the wide spots with Lo Celso and Alli for the number 10, along with Gio being able to drop deeper with TN, take Winks into account with Dier too and Sissoko...

Players like Clarke are great, but we need the depth now, I think if we can get Sess in and move him back to LB or LWB, I think that’d be solid business.

If we want to compete with the best on 4 fronts, this is the depth and quality we need to do it.

No it isn't worth it I'm afraid, we tried it already. Do you think we just rocked up and decided to roll like this? :D

We were in Baghdad when you were in your dads bag :woot:

These forums have evolved over many years experimenting until we reach what we think are reasonable compromises. A LOT of people were complaining about the sources we allowed, now, nowhere near as many, it's the lesser of two evils and as we keep saying, you can't keep everyone happy, the best we can hope for is to keep some of you happy, except you ;)
Errrrrr ............. Nah .................. not going there .................... No, no, no. Not going there! :censored::censored::censored:

People seem to rave about his skill levels and pace, so for £35/40m that would be a cheeky bit of business.

Added to Lo Celso and NDombele of course...:cautious:

As I said earlier before I was cruelly censored by the powers that be...

Ndombele replacing Dembele, Lo Celso replacing Eriksen and Draxler replacing Lamela would be a massive upgrade for us overall

Obligatory “skills & goals 2019” video:


Still looks very comfortable with the ball at his feet, works the ball well in tight spaces, very confident in the box and picks out clever passes.

Yes I know they’re only highlights and he’s in a poor league etc etc

He's a bit like Max Meyer in that he's lived on his reputation for quite a while now. Better player than Meyer of course but not nearly as good as he should be or as good as some people on here seem to think.
He's never really kicked on and could of course step it up at our place but currently he'd struggle to get in our first XI
