No room for Boye? And are we actually signing Ejaria?

Re: RUMOUR - Pele

A role we've so desperately needed to fill. I will reserve judgement; Forest were a mess last year so you can't read into his disappointing loan too much

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Anyone else worried about the volume of rumours? Puscas, Ulloa, Joao, Pele, Rafael. Boye only joined last week. It's hard to bring together so many diverse players and get them to gel quickly; it reminds me of our 15/16 season with Piazon, Ola John etc. I'd stick with Joao, Pele and Rafael. All in p...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

I mean, a lot of risky signings you could say, but the one thing I truly trust Howe on is not to screw the club. If he sanctions these signings, I assume he's comfortable it fits with FFP.

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

CBC is a 16 year old GK. Forget potential and ability, surely he is 2 years or so away from first team football? It's not a position for kids.

Re: Euro 2020

stealthpapes For Euro 2016 UEFA set up a resale portal for spare tickets etc. I got all my tickets through that.

No sign of that on their website. I'm hopeful they may make it possible at a later date

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I don't like this front 4 idea. It's over the top and imbalanced.

I'd like to see Swift pushed up into a more advanced role ahead of Rino and Pele, with a front 3. But obviously Gomes is manager so my opinion is fairly irrelevant.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

No way Boye has been signed for the bench. I think we'll stick him in behind the striker instead of swift. He's a tricky winger. Not a no.10. We essentially have 3 first choice wingers, with Boye, Barrow and Meite, all of whom could fill in up front if something happens to Joao. They will all get p...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

If Joao, Pele and Rafael do sign there is going to be a distinctive Iberian/Latin American feel to the side especially when you add on Boyé into the mix. It will be down to Gomes to get them to gel with the rest of the squsd. I don’t think many of us expected eight signings this summer. It will imp...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Yes. Would mean a big squad again though. The bench should certainly be decent! Rafael Yiadom, Miazga, Moore, Blackett Rinomhota, Pele Meite, Swift, Barrow Joao Walker, Morrison, McIntyre, Adam, Boye, Novakovich, Olise/Loader/Baldock Disagree it would be big - we would have 2 players per outfield p...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Aluko 2.0. Transfer fee is ludicrous if true. It's like groundhog day being a supporter sometimes. Disagree. This guy plays in a position we have a clear need, and has the physical and technical attributes needed to be the focal point we need. With Aluko, it was another winger/general forward when ...

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. Yep, very glad the gourlay days of spending big money on average championship strikers are long gone. Can'...

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: 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...
