    Oh come on... ridiculous penalties.

     

    Sorry boys but he's got both Portugal ones completely bang on. 

     

    First one the keeper should have been sent off tbqh and that ones blatant handball. 

     

    Defender only has his himself to blame, wtf are his hands doing there.

    Happy enough with that, not conceding a goal in the group stages isn't to be sniffed at. We won't have a choice but to me more expansive now, unless we score an early goal and decide to just sit on it. 

     

    You played three low scoring teams with unimpressive forward lines and played defensive football, grinding to two absolutely turgid 1-0 wins and a goalless draw. 

     

    But you think you're going to be MORE expansive against one of Portugal, Germany or France? Teams absolutely over loaded with attacking talent?

    Transfermarkt isn't a shit website to be fair. Absolutely loaded with information.

     

    It's an absolutely great tool for almost everything except transfer rumours, for which it's woeful.

    Barca sign older players all the time to go and play for Barca B and then make a bit of profit when they sell them on. 

     

    If he goes to Barcelona he'll just be the next Hiroki Abe, Rey Manaj, Matheus Pereira, etc and he'll never actually get a kick for the first team. 

     

    Kid needs to find some humility and go and earn his career and - if you're not full of shit which is likely - get muppets like you out of his ear.

    He actually turned down a new deal from Southampton

     

    Presumably because they wanted to give him either a lot less money or a lot less time than he was hoping for. Which, again, we should probably be doing. 

     

    I think he's a smart piece of business, by the way. I don't particularly object to signing him. I just don't think it should be for a lot of money and I doubt it is.

    You'd have said the same about Evans when we signed him. Doubled his pay.

     

    I actually wouldn't have, to be honest. Evans was in high demand, is a highly regarded professional, a natural leader and someone for whom athleticism is not a crucial part of his game. 

     

    Ryan Bertrand is a nearly 32 year old full back being released on a free because his lower mid table club don't really need him anymore.

     

    His career is absolutely moving to its final stages. He can come here, be backup, get a bit of European football and accept a likely two year contract on a fraction of what he was on at Soton or he can go and pimp himself out to Championship / relegation fodder Prem clubs for a starting place. 

     

    He's probably likely to get paid more if he can start a bidding war amongst the latter tbqh. 

     

    I see no incentive for us to pay over the odds for him.

    Don’t understand why this is dragging on for so long, looked decent when he played for us in the Premier League, could save us a fortune if he gets the chance to step up… 

     

    Look around the league, or even around Europe. 

     

    How much transfer business has been done? 

     

    We've just ended the longest 18 odd month run of disrupted football and a lot of people want a holiday, clubs are in financial turmoil, there's travel restrictions all over the world which will slow down most transfers, there's major tournaments going on in Europe and South America where plenty of players are on international duty - and THEY will need holidays afterwards. 

     

    This is going to be a slow and drawn out transfer window and people just need patience. It might be a couple weeks still before guys like Soumaré and Daka are holding up Leicester shirts for the cameras and they're the deals we can be pretty certain are already done.

    Don't even joke about it, captain cautious will be bang up for this. Don't want too many fancy dan creative players. 

     

    Guiness World Record for loudest sigh ever recorded, today at 7pm as the entire country of England reacts to the squad announcement as Gareth Southgate "goes for it."

     

    Pickford 

    Stones, Mings, Coady 

    Trippier, Henderson, Rice, Phillips, Shaw

    Kane, Sterling
