Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

CountryRoyal Tore us a new one today but tbh it looked like it was more to do with our own ineptitude.

Made him look like Lucas Moura.

His record is basically 1 in 3 over the past 2 years, as a bit part player. This is definitely an upgrade.

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Apparently we've brought the fee down by waiving Hector's sell on fee, bringing down the amount Sheff Wed will have to pay Chelsea. Genius from Howe; maybe our shrewd way of operating is back.

Re: Are we screwed?

If we spent £5m on Joao and gave a 3 year contract, the expense would be spread (I.e. £1.67m per year). Maybe it's not so unreasonable, but it also means expenses already incurred going into future years.

Re: Are we screwed?

Looking at FFP again, it sounds like there is substance behind the Cabral and Joao rumours. I expect a player coming from Serie A to be on healthy wages. There is supposedly a sizeable fee with Joao. So, were we overplaying how dire our situation was to get good deals? Are we about to see an experie...

Re: The generic transfer thread

If we want to see evidence that the game's gone (as the talksport cliche machine would say) then we only need to look at the fee Villa paid for Mings (NB I know this is probably old news, I don't really follow other team's transfers) £26.5 million!!!!! Mourinho called it when the Neymar transfer ha...

Brentford have bought another midfielder from Southend, and got a new winger in. Have they found alternatives to Ejaria? Could we still be the only ticket in town?

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

The decision to pass on Dybala due to excessive wages and lack of enthusiasm is, for me, a sign Man Utd have learned from recent mistakes and are moving in the right direction. A quality player undoubtedly, but could easily have been a repeat of Di Maria and Sanchez. You can baulk at the fees they h...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

This sounds like an excellent signing. Club must also be applauded for fast, decisive action here. The fans have judged Virginia very quickly on the basis of one competitive performance. But it seems Jose has seen enough in the Spain tour and training that we need an upgrade for this season, and tho...

Re: RUMOUR - Connor Wickham

I once signed him on football manager. He demanded to be one of my highest earners, scored no goals, was generally shit and then led the squad on strike when I dropped him. It's a no from me.

Hull have apparently pocketed £9.5m from the Maguire deal. Useful sell on clauses.

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Aren't we expected to be in the same area of the table as Wednesday? If he was going to make a big impact, would they loan him to a rival?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Really could do with a striker though suspect that we’ll see Barrow, Boyé and Meite getting time in that position. And do still need an AMC. GK is the biggest worry at the moment and both that and DL might be areas that need to be strengthened in January depending on injuries/form etc. At this stag...

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

I have a question for a rules boffin. Boye makes 3 loan signings. Rumour is we're going for another striker, while the Ejaria deal is not dead. I'd also like another DM. As we have no money, I assume these would be loans, potentially up to 6 loans. You are only allowed 5 in your matchday squad. Do ...

Re: The 4 needed to complete the team

Reckon Ejaria may well join on deadline day when Liverpool can't sell him. Obvs if Brentford are flush with cash from selling any of the 3 or 4 15 million rated players they seem to have (trying to work out how they didn't walk the league last year with so much talent) then that might change They'r...

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

I assume tomorrow is too soon for him.

My biggest concern is things like cultural adaptation to Championship and language barrier with rest of the squad. Manage that well and it looks like a very exciting signing.
