Re: Esneyder Mena

Gives me a bit of the Paolo Hurtado feels. Although nice to see an attacking FB linked. Yiadom is quick but really isn’t that great once he gets in the final third. A senior LWB is bound to be a target and the window isn’t open yet, so not sure why people are bemoaning this. Think the window opened...

Re: Euro 2020

It looks like it might be better for England to finish runner-up in the group - winning it means we will face either France, Germany or Portugal in the R16 (unless Hungary pull a miracle) Bit like in World Cup, finishing runner-up gave us a much easier route through If we finish runners-up, wouldn'...

Re: Free transfers watch

Yea think Snowball has read too much into Nameless’s question (perhaps a joke) about Morgan’s varying use of “released” and “out of contract”. I don’t think anyone thinks players out of contract are automatically rubbish, though it’s fair to say that most would be unsuitable for our needs. To be ho...

Virgil Misidjan is close to signing for FC Twente. Reading FC, FC Utrecht, FC Groningen and Swansea City were all interested. Winger, 27 years old, would have been a free transfer.

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Emiliano Buendia is on the verge of joining Aston Villa for £33m from newly-promoted Norwich City. Don't know if this gives any indication of how much Olise could be worth?

Re: Interesting.Is Nelson Oliveira really available?

When Oliveira came to us on loan was that due to Kia? If so, there is a chance he may return (finances permitting) though most of the other personnel (manager, etc) have changed - but then again Stam was interested in him years ago.

Re: England - the future....

Surely VAR was used last night? It was in the Wales game. No Var used. That surprises me. Used in Nice last night. I thought that was strange but thinking about it the England game was played at the Riverside and as Middlesbrough are a Championship side they wouldn't have had VAR. Nice are in Ligue...

Re: England - the future....

Would be surprised if Sterling starts, barely started at all for City in 2021 apart from their “rotation” games and when he has, he’s been rather poor. If Southgate stays true to his “players picked on form” comment, then he shouldn’t be starting Even when Sterling was in form for Man City he has a...

Goalkeeper Simon Moore, 31, and ex-England international Jack Rodwell, 30, are also leaving. Rodwell jo...
