  1. 2017/18 U23s, Development, U19s etc

    I had a look on the Barnsley forums back when Matty James and Elder were on loan there together, consensus seemed to be that Elder was one of their worst loanees ever..
  2. Nantes

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5416363/Nantes-boss-Claudio-Ranieri-ready-quit-Italy-job.html 'I have a contract with Nantes for two years and I have not received any messages, so I can't say anything. 'But if I were to be contacted for the Italy job, I'd go to the Nantes president and ask to be released.' bit inappropriate to say while under contract no?
  3. Ndidi to Liverpool

    His missus is a very down-to-earth and low maintenance university student. I think she studies something like Politics/International Relations at a UK university.
  4. Ndidi to Liverpool

    We'll have paid 25m for him (after including all add ons, i'm sure he's fulfilled most of them). And that was when he was a relative unknown from Belgium. Our players get new contracts with pay rises at 21, Gray turned 21 first and had his sorted, Chilwell + Ndidi have now turned 21 too and will get theirs this summer. This story must be partially agent driven. Either way we aren't selling. His current market value is 60m+ according to those football observatory people, we'll want significantly more than that - probably 80m+ but even then only if he actually tried to push for a move (which he won't). 4 years left on current contract with no release clause.
  5. LCFC 1-0 Sheff Utd Post Match

    wholesome Twitter interaction
  6. Can't be bothered to read through the entire thread, but I'm a bit concerned about the Mercury implying Riyad's mental health has been affected, genuine depression is no joke.
  7. 2017/18 U23s, Development, U19s etc

    Whoever made that decision, it's rubbish. Beaglehole said earlier in the season that they wanted enough points to be safe from PL2 relegation as soon as possible, so that as many players as possible could go on loan in the second half of the season. I imagine the players gave all they could in the first half of the season thinking about a loan and are now disheartened they were blocked. I'm not surprised if the recent downturn in U23s form is related to this.
  8. Deulofeu....get him in.....

    Apparently very inconsistent, also has no stamina
  9. Can't see Gray staying for much longer tbh. He signed a new deal because Puel came in and started him loads, but after 5 games he was dropped and a replacement bought soon after.
  10. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    Doubt it, even if he returns tomorrow, 1 day of training will probably not be enough
  11. Benalouane is unhappy

    They do seem to get some ITK info fairly regularly though. They were the only ones correctly saying Riyad had no offers during the summer deadline day mess.
  12. Probably forgot to update their policy from a year ago when January AFCONs were still a thing
  13. Reports today that we wanted 80m cash at the time of Man City's final offer, so I think we may have already knocked 15m off during negotiations.
