    Danny Amartey

    If the manager doesn't think Amartey will be in his plans then it makes sense to loan him out for a fee or have someone else pick up his wages.

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I think we're talking slight cross purposes. I'm talking about investment funds, pension funds, etc, that control billions of pounds. Companies cannot just pull out overnight. Investment funds can and will do. This then has knock-on effects, stock market falls, falling currency, inflation, falling house prices, that then feed into the real economy with investment decisions by businesses and households.

    It's perception that is important. For example, if you asked an investor in New York to tell me about the nuances in the politics of Italy or Spain, they would look at you blankly. So would investors in London. If you ask them whether Italian government is pro-EU or eurosceptic, they would be able to answer. So imagine the perception of the UK to investors around the world if they first leave the EU and then vote in a government who wish to nationalise industries. They would see the UK, quite rightly, as a basket case and worry what might come next. They would, quite rightly, move their investments to safer environments where they wouldn't be so worried.

    Corbyn/McDonnell's economic plans will result in more capital flight from the economy than brexit will. If you're an investor based in Singapore/Australia/America or wherever, you're not going to sit around with your money invested in the UK whilst industries are being nationalised. You can say that it's only one or two industries that are planned to be, but investors abroad, who don't have the time or inclination to understand the nuances of British politics, will see it through the prism of the UK public being quite mad, voting first for brexit, then for a nationalising socialist. I.e. time to get out the country as it goes bananas.

    Careful, you're in danger of sounding like a Corbynista with their deselections. It's important for the Conservatives to have the range of voices to hold the government to account. Let's be honest, the opposition aren't.

    I'm not sure that's how it works. In fact, I'm pretty sure that Saudi Arabia is different culturally and societally than Nigeria or the UK, whether a practicing Muslim or not.

    President Trump & the USA

    Wow. Just wow. And not in a good way. Wow. I didn't think Sasha Baron Cohen could find anything more crazy than though his previous creations, but wow.

    Didn't N'Zonzi reject us after we won the league? I'm sure we tried to sign him then.

    A second referendum is a political impossibility. Theresa May has always believed that the country's interests are best served remaining in the EU, but is trying to respect the referendum result. So to run a second referendum would put her in a politically impossible position. She (and presumably the bulk of her government) would recampaign for remain, basically arguing against all their proposals. It is absurd.

    Premier League Thread 2018/19 stuff it in here.

    Makes you wonder if we should have waited till after the world cup to sell Mahrez. Selling Mahrez before the end of the world cup was only to Man City and Mahrez's benefit. Not ours, as the transfer merry go round starts up in earnest. That's twice Man City have had our pants down. The Mahrez deal and Iheanacho's deal.

    I was only saying it tongue in cheek. Actually, scrub that, if he'd stayed with us we would have won the champions league

    Who do you want Summer 2018

    I think he'd be a great signing but I don't think Chelsea will sell him, especially not at 25m. Bearing in mind he is a young England international, they'd probably value him at closer to 45m, although as I say, I can't see them looking to sell him as he is someone they can build a team around for the future.

    I was going to say. This thread patting the club on the back is incomplete without referencing the above and provisionally adding the following players to the list. Iborra £12m Silva £24m Iheanacho £25m
