Posting things like:​
'I hope the bale situation is resolved soon'​
'This Bale thing is boring me now'​
Have been said and said and said again. Nothing new, just repeating posts you've made a thousand times already, so please, spare us a repeat. We know already.​
We're getting conflicting ITK reports on Bale and with each one, the SAME things are being said. We've reached the stage where it's at saturation point, there's nothing new being said, by anyone. So why not make a conscious decision to help this thread out by cutting and pasting what you thought yesterday or the day before that into the Bale thread rather than in this one.​
That would be nice.​
Today's word of the day is: circles​

Genuinely disappointed A&C ... i cannot survive without 265 pages of posts starting with 'I think' or containing 'IMHO' ... what would be left? reasoned debate? ... well OK theres a first time for everything :eek:)

If we can include Morata in any potential deal then this absence will shift the attention from us onto Suarez and Liverpool as Real look for a replacement to placate the fans. This could leave Arsenal and Liverpool short and put us in a stronger position.

Yeah, hoping to hear of some in comings imminently arriving, would be hoping we would be playing our strongest XI on Saturday, ready for the Palace game. And if our strongest XI includes Livermore, Fryers and Kane.....I'm worried !!

In an effort to take discussions away from the Welsh winger (soon to become Welsh whinger? What a difference a letter makes), what has been the latest ITK on Chiriches, Alderweireld, Sakho, indeed any other centre back?

Last I heard, the Chiriches deal seemed to be off, have I missed anything since?

I think Saturday's friendly (and I know it's only a friendly) opened my eyes to the fact that maybe the media is causing us to run around in circles over the Bale deal, but perhaps we are focusing on the wrong issue? No point creating and scoring goals if there is any chance of Livermore and Fryers lining up at CB for us next season.

Otherwise, I would love some reassurance that Kaboul is about to return to his brilliant best. Hearing some nasty rumour on here that he might not be.

Circ Les really is an awful TV pundit.
New CBs please.

You would have to believe a new CB has jumped up the list of priorities, though news of Bernard is also more than welcome... but I wouldn't worry about starting line-ups just yet. You never want to go into first game with injuries, but would rather give the injured players the proper time to recover and get fit than rush them into action as soon ass the season started. It's a long old haul! A lot of people say we lost UCL in the first 3 games of last season, i say that it is just as true that losing Kaboul & Sandro for most of the season was a massive factor as well, these players need the time to come back properly.

WIll be interesting to see what Mystery comes back with, though one assumes it is Bale related? Or did he say otherwise?

Am far more concerned about the CB situation and any ITK on them

Unless we are going the Keegan route of winning every game 5-4 we are going to have to buy 1-2 CB's and fast!
