Re: CONFIMRED: Darren Sidoel

I seems we were watching him for some time, before Clement was even at the club so I don't see anything sinister in Clement's comments. Do we reject all previous scouting work and start again just because we have a new first team manager? For what it's worth, he's young, relatively cheap and potenti...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

Compeely agreed about Madejski, Al lot of our fans have very short memories.

However, at least we don't sing songs celebrating a convicted sex offender.

That may all be true but unlike Sunderland, we don't claim to have a loyal and passionate fanbase

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

Hope he does well there because their fans are a bunch of fickle, whinging tossbags. And ours aren't? Do our fans, when we're 10 points clear at the top of the table, start booing and walk out when we concede an 80th minute equaliser? Do our fans tear up their season tickets and walk out on masse w...

Re: George Evans

Of which, we will only see 270k given the 40% sell on Man City have on him. Better than nothing as clears out a body who is unlikely to play, clears his wages, which are probably pretty decent and gives us a little bit of cash to reinvest in wages or a small fee. Aren't sell-ons normally negotiated...

Re: The generic transfer thread

I think he'll do well in Scotland. Do suspect hell be torn a new arsehole in the 4 games that matter though. Shows what's bit of Champions League money can do in a shit league.

On a slightly related note, I see that Southampton are still funding Celtic's transfer spending.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Real made €100m in shirt sales in his first year there. It's not unfeasable Juve could as well. They are the most popular team in Italy.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

You can't discuss Balkan national identity without being political. National identity, particularly after the death if Tito, was the single biggest defining characteristic for most Yugoslavs. You were Croat, or a Serb or a Bosnian first and a Yugoslav second. There really wasn't any significant swit...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

Those nations are very small and will never get to win a World Cup or a Euros. You do realise Scotland has a bigger population than Croatia? I think Croatia winning it would be brilliant. It would show that you don't need 40m people, you don't need billionaire club owners and you don't need a multi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

Next part is to get to HT still leading Also seems a bit of a one trick game plan i.e. pass to Sterling and let him run at their defence And come on Jesse at least make the keeper work. England’s tactics are working well though. Croatia are struggling to cope with Sterling’s pace. England are playi...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Butland would seem the obvious choice but you've also got 2 England internationals at Burnley. Either would be an upgrade on Karius and neither would cost £20m.

Re: Thanks Yann and goodbye.

He was originally going to retire this summer to become a financial advisor.

I presume his contract extension was on the assumption that he was going to regain some level if fitness. I can only assume he and the club have realised that wont happen and he's reverting back to Plan A.
