    The Transfer Wishlist Thread

    Nearly all clubs in the PL will be in the same financial spot. Hence, there will be a premium on free agents. Also will see a huge increase in loans... In particular longer loans that may involve clubs effectively swapping/trading players. So, while i don't think we will spend more than 10m this...

    Premier League officially postponed until ...

    Then don't do it. The whole purpose of restarting is to finalize league positions. Including relegation. If you don't have relegation on the table there's no point in going through this huge brouhaha. Safest and smartest way forward is to finish the season now. Crown the presumptive Champs. But...

    Premier League officially postponed until ...

    Been thinking for a while now that the best and safest course of action is to end the season now. No relegation. But also a collective agreement not to participate in any European competition next season. It only sucks for the championship teams. But if safety and some form of fairness is the...

    Have you missed football?

    I miss it. I don't miss the foul mood it would put me in when we'd lose. In particular, the last 14 months have not been enjoyable. And has often left me in a huff after another ugly display. But then again, my world feels like there's this vague void to it. A hole of sorts. And that's football...

    ENIC...

    Maybe they should approach it as tax thresholds. Eg: under a certain amount per year, you don't pay any tax, and then rates go up, as your salary increases. So, let's say they decide something along these lines on a per anum basis: Per year basis: Group One: 100k or less = 1%. (Player weekly...

    The Transfer Wishlist Thread

    This next window will be all about long term loans and going after free agents. I'm guessing, like most teams will have much less cash to throw around. I can see loans sort of becoming the equivalent of player trades in the States for sports like baseball, nfl and nba. As the financial landscspe...

    The Naming Rights Thread

    Naming rights has nowt to do with Bezos net worth. Two different things. However, he of course can greatly influence this decision. Which may be a part of a bigger goal for Bezos... Which is to make Joe Lewis an offer he can't refuse. Take ownership. And then go get himself an NFL team a year or...

    The Naming Rights Thread

    True. But some companies are not hurting for revenue. In fact, they are making more than ever. One such company? Amazon. And they have the $$$ to pay whatever the hell they want.

    So does that mean we are buggered on non-so-buggered on the transfer front?

    Furloughing staff

    Agreed. It was not well handled. I have no idea if it was needed or not. But I highly doubt there won't be others far behind. Which is simply tragic. I think some players are doing what they can to give back. Others, maybe not so much. Even if all the Spurs snr players agreed to a 20% cut to...

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    He's going nowhere this summer. In fact, most players will be staying put, i reckon. This situation will have a profound impact on spending over the next 18 months. The only players to really benefit will be free agents. As they will be more in demand with teams having very limited budgets. Yes...

    Player watch: Oliver Skipp

    If we replenish our midfield next season. If Ndombele suddenly switches on. If Jose persists with a two man midfield, then objectively speaking the best outcome for Skipp and the club is a one to two year loan to either a championship team on the verge or a newly promoted PL team. I keep...

    The Transfer Wishlist Thread

    Aren't both the PSG fullbacks available on free transfers this summer? Muienier and Kurzawa? Either or both of them worth a punt? Both mid to late 20s, right? Also unlikely we'll have much money to spend over the transfer window. Even if we end up back in the CL, I can't see Jose being given...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Swap with Coutinho? I can't believe I'm actually writing this... but if Barca offered us 50M for him... I'd be tempted to take the bait if I were the powers that be. Especially if it meant that the money goes straight back into player investment. It's not so much that I'm giving up on the guy...

    Player Watch: Harry Kane

    All of them will be back by mid-May, i'd guess. but it likely won't matter, as the season will probably be voided.
