Re: Jackson Irvine

I think it's pure spaculation at this point, can't see any news stories linking Irvine to anyone right now. Funny I found a story of him discussing Hull's play-off ambitions in Nov 2019, this was when they were 3pts off the play-offs on the back of a 3-0 away win against Fulham, what a come down. R...

Re: The generic transfer thread

BBC reporting this is going to be a swap deal with Spurs sending £3m & Kyle Walker-Peters to Saints. Good deal for all parties I think, although that does leave Spurs without another defender. KWP looks to be a decent player, but £12m for a 23 year old defender with only 20 appearances, seems a...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Liverpool, not wishing presumably to pay the premium that appears to apply to British players, have not bothered to increase their offer for Jamal Lewis of Norwich but have gone for the Olympiakos left-back Tsimikas at about the amount that was offered for Lewis. Sounds like a sensible purchase for ...

Re: Jackson Irvine

Always liked him as an attacking midfielder, now a free agent and I hear that we are interested. With Swift seemingly going and no news on Ejaria it could well be that Irvine joins Laurent in a fresh-looking new midfield. There will surely be a few available that don't want to be playing in Div 1 (...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Who the oxf*rd is Jason Timdall? Didn't he play rugby? Jason Tindall was Eddie Howe’s assistant manager. No-one’s heard of him outside of Bournemouth as he has more or less exclusively been with that club as a player and then been Eddie’s no2 everywhere Eddie’s been (so just Burnley and Bournemouth...

Re: The generic transfer thread

The front three are marvellous but , unless Brewster is thought to be ready as back-up, I would like to see a back-up experienced central striker maybe a more physical type. As a slight aside on physical strikers, was amazed when reminded the other day that Roberto Firmino signed for Liverpool befo...

Re: End of season ratings

Agree ratings are rather off, but shame others had to destroy an interesting debate with name calling. Surely, it does not make sense to rate Olise as our highest rated player given he did not score a single goal and did not get many assists ... our top rated players despite their faults have to be...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Dear me, that's some pay deal. Can't help but feel like Liverpool have stood still so far this summer, with Chelsea and United improving quite obviously (and United's unbeaten run going under the radar a little). Stood still at a very high bar, of course - but there are a few rumours that Klopp doe...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Bournemouth will get relegated from the championship next season.......all the factors are there. Spine of the team leaves, owners cautious with money, wrong manager appointment thinking they can turn the clock back. With Wednesday on -12, Derby potentially too and the likes of Rotherham, Luton, Ba...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

I think we'll be fine without Osho, his playing career would suggest that his run at the end of the season was a bit of a purple patch, I can't see him ending up any higher then mid League One, I suspect he'll actually end up at League Two. Perhaps he will follow the path of Dickie, Henry, Fosu, Ma...

A quarter of a century ago :shock: today we enjoyed our greatest away performance ever. The goal highlights don't do it justice - we were brilliant that day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwxI5e06HXU Breathtaking and we utterly destroyed Tranmere. The best away performance I ever witnessed. Same ...

Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

Happy to get him in but won't get carried away like most on Twitter are. Some people are absolutely wetting themselves. I agree. If he plays like he did in that Cup tie that was on TV then fine but if he plays like the one who has only ever scored 6 first team goals in his career and was hardly eve...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

Re: Ups & Downs 19/20

It’s certainly an interesting case which will be talked about but not sure you can conclude that as there was still 45 minutes left of that game (I.e anything could have still happened in that game) Failing to beat Norwich at home and only getting 1 pt from 2 games v Watford did for them more. Yeah...

Re: Swift to... Southampton

Would be disappointed if that was the final figure. But if it is £3.5m upfront with, lets say another £1.5m in instalments over 2 years and sell on %, it wouldn't be the worst deal in the world. yeah, suspect there will be some sort of add ons. 5-6m all in seems about right I'm a big fan but he has...

I hope those Liverpool fans who abuse Henderson on a weekly basis feel embarrassed now! Can see what they’re missing with him being out, Keita and Chamberlain don’t offer anywhere near the same as Henderson does Not sure they do, it was always England fans rather than Liverpool fans. Henderson is a...
