Although A&C has been relaxed today, guessing games will rile him back up.
Don't do it.

We all know it's tempting, but please don't start guessing as it would ruin this thread and a beautiful day for our club!

A lot happening. New updates becoming rapid. I am told we are trying to tie up a deal for a very talented under 21, with ‘Massive potential’. Trying to finalise with his club, as lot of interest in him. I do not have the name as yet, and I know that is frustrating. If I get the name I will post it (if I can). Normally when name comes out I get confirmation.

Sess, is all but agreed. His injury, I am told makes it a bit more relaxed.
Great news that we are looking to the future with young signings: however, I hope we are still looking to improve the first 11

Ok, perennial lurker here, but today is the kinda day where you just have to say something.

Sorry to hear the news @Mr Pink, thoughts are with you bud.

@Vics Donation made to the run, such a great cause and as we’ve seen today, affects so many.

And in other news, such a massive statement signing today and more positive itk that we’re not done yet! Haven’t seen these sort of scenes since the summer of Bale and I pretty much lost a month of my life reading this site that year!!

Keep up the good work everyone, this could be an epic summer!

I'm going to ban the next person who lists a shitload of players who are under 21 so far up the arse that I'll be spraying Mr Sheen down their gobs to polish the banstick.

That's right you fuckers, you had your 15 minutes.

Kind of surprised we would be going for another young player that wouldn't be able to help us this season since we already bought one in Clarke and set aside £9Mil of this Summer's budget. Not sure if spending more is smart with our budget as it could maybe cost us a player now due to shortage of funds.

There appears to be something of a gap in our academy's production line meaning we will have relatively few youngsters coming through to beef up the squad in the coming years. In that light, stocking up on some young talent now might be a very wise thing to do.

All part of Poch's rebuilding and the start of the new project which involves moving players up to the first team over the next five years, maybe he has come to the conclusion that very few of the current crop are up to it. Hopefully it will come out of a separate budget.

You're probably right, but that's an assumption

Hercs has said that the player in question has "massive potential"

To be honest, we signed the likes of Sanchez who fit that description, but also went straight into the main squad
