  1. Not that we'll never know, but would be interesting to find out if Claude and Rudkin remained on good terms and we got an inside track on this fella.
  2. Got this Sheridan Smith thing on. Looking a bit rough. High maintenance bird, I reckon. No thanks.
  3. I agree in large parts with you. But we aren't a club to risk signing all chiefs and no Indians. If we went entirely down the high risk / young player route, yes we'd have Maddison, Soyuncu and Wilf but also kaputska, kramaric,. Benkovic and be staring at relegation
  4. Overpaying doesn't really matter if the end result is a success. Man Utd overpaid by 40 million for Maguire....but it all worked out in the end and proved to be worth every penny for them. We overpaid by 20 million for Perez. That hasn't been a disaster but nor has it paid any dividends.
  5. There's a big a cultural shift. The Flemish Belgians have taken English to heart and their English nowadays is insanely good. Better even than the Dutch (who have that awful guttural accent 'schteve') I think the froggie Belgians stick to french and Flemish as a reluctant second bow
  6. The transfer fee usually has a say in the salary. He'd be a band c salary, behind then As of Vardy and Maddison and the B's of Schmeichel and Evans and Tielemans. I'd guess 60k a week with Praet, Ricardo and Perez
  7. My gut feel is that this dude is very much an Atalanta, Leicester, Hertha Berlin middle-of-the-road sort of guy. The type of guy a girl would take home to their mum. I just wonder if our No1 LB target is likely to be unobtainable until a deadline day deal and this guy will fill in til then and after that fill in at RB until Ricardo is back (which will be a while til he's properly back) James Justin (I'm still not 100% sure it's that way around) isn't good enough imo for the level of football we aspire to
  8. Still doubt this guy will.come to us....but after all the slagging the club has had, wouldn't it be great if, little do we all know, we are actually playing a marvellous hand here?
  9. Lol. I'm a bit guilty of the occasional eccentric touching behaviour, using a crooked finger knuckle to press for traffic lights or McDonald's electronic order screens (which by the way, were being used by scores of people today... without.cleaning in-between) ....and me being just over six foot, I push and pull bog door handles at the top where few.people.reach to 😂
  10. I'm not surprised. All these supposed enhanced cleaning regimes are pie in the sky stuff. It's well meaning, but unrealistic. To decontaminate a seat properly would perhaps take five solid minutes of rigorous cleaning. Plus innumerable clean wipes so germs aren't simply being spread from one part of the seat to the other. It's just guff to make us all feel better. I don't see a problem though. Just keep your hands and fingers away eyes/nose/mouth...which as a long time germ/clean hands freak anyway, is second nature to me
  11. https://m.nieuwsblad.be/cnt/dmf20200831_95902735?utm_campaign=twitterfeed&utm_medium=dlvr&utm_source=twitter Another Belgian journo reporting it's advanced. Says we had a word with him last season
  12. Entirely possible. Maybe Rodgers doesn't rate Justin as anything else other than a competent emergency stand in (which reflects my own opinion on him) and has decided a utility RB to fill in for Ricardo and specialist LB are both needed
  13. Happy to confess that I slaughtered Soyuncu after Maguire was sold and said things like 'he'll be eaten alive' and 'absolute liability'
  14. Lol. As if we'd buy someone in advance of an inevitable sale!
  15. Just a rehash of daily mailst report earlier last week. Not new news.
  16. I've found the nottm/leics thing fascinating for years. Nottm is undoubtedly more hipster. I dated a bird there last year who never could stop going on how great and trendy it was and how uncool Leicester was. Yet the quality of my leafy, suburban life pissed all over nottms redbrick suburban dreariness where bolting the door three times giarding against white trash neighbours is the norm....but all within reach of Sherwood's soya milk cappuccino served in a faux milk urn My uncool bitbnice neighbours, my garden, my cycle routes, my 30 min walk to bradgate.or..in the other direction my 30 min walk to a village pub in Ratby. My 30 min walk for edgier drinks.in a Portuguese cafe on fosse rd. Not cool bit 30 mins nightime walk in any direction from Sherwood was a risky business So yep, superficially, nottm is.cool. but quality.of.life is , imo, way off ours.
  17. Odd comment.. Whether you agree with it or not, many of the crowd - outside the usual rent a rabble bores - are exactly doing what you ask; spending their energy on something positive for the human race. You might not agree with them, but at least they are trying
  18. No probs. I agree largely..and although i singled out our 8 elite players, the back up of, Gray, Barnes, Wes, Fuchs, Perez, ihanehacho albrighton, Praet, Mendy, praet, Choudhury and JJ is as good as you could hope for. All half decent PL level pros. Injuries and occasional bits of bad luck will affect anyone ....I jus find it staggering that we so far have failed to address LB if nothing else. We've known for months and months this gap needed filling. Our losses ATM are the equivalent of Liverpool losing VVD, TAA, Robertson, Henderson and Salah for the opening few games. Or Man City minus Walker, Mendy, Laporte, KDB and Fernandinho. I'd wager both clubs would've done something by now in the transfer window. Yet we've done zilch.
  19. Hey. We've got 8 superb outfield players! I never forget that.. Problem is one's been sold, Wilf AWOL, Maddison and Ricardo injured and Evans suspended. That leaves just Vardy, Tielemans and Soyuncu as our only top.class players lining up for the first few games.
  20. Odd transfer. Right up there with us going for Bennett.
  21. Correct.. He didn't fit our MO from the off. It was always wishful thinking. We buy cutely. Whether it be a Cambiasso or Evans or Fuchs on the way down or a Wilf, Maddison, Ricardo on the way up. We don't buy peak.
  22. Unless any signings arrive and signings that aren't confined to quarantine, inside 12 months we'll have swapped a stellar cast defence containing 4 world class players for the worst defence individually in the league. Remarkable.
  23. Playing again for Ajax v Frankfurt. I think it's fair to say we can bum this one off. What a waste of time
  24. Lol. That was my gut reaction too. Knock it 5-25 yards past 'em and run.
