  1. I thought Andre Gray played for Burnley? Have I missed something?
  2. How is the bloke in Spain who recruited Hernandez and the bloke in Scandinavia who recruited Amartey our best scouts? Unless others know better David Millls and Ollie Waldron are still here who are meant to be our top blokes aren't they?
  3. Absolutely this. Or Denis Wise, or Trevor Benjamin, or Junior Lewis, or Rab Douglas or Sergio Hellings or.....goodness we've purchased some absolute dog muck over the years.
  4. I'm a massive fan of Walsh, always have been and always will be, but surely it's time to let go now. We can't keep going over what should have been and what might have been. It's over, he's made his decision to leave. We're left with no alternative but to move on as best we can.
  5. Wasn't he speaker of the House of Commons? Later Lord Tonypandy? Or was that a different bloke?
  6. A couple of years would have been great๐Ÿ˜„
  7. Yep, think you've just predicted N'Didi's future there๐Ÿ˜„
  8. Haha, of course you're right. ๐Ÿ˜„ early age dementia setting in๐Ÿ˜„
  9. But when we signed Kante and Mahrez we had no idea if they needed time or not. You're saying that we should only buy proven PL quality which means you're ruling out the possibility of recruiting the next N'Didi, Kante, Mahrez, Morgan, Drinkwater, Gray, and Vardy.
  10. I agree, Cambiasso was excellent in those games. I wouldn't want him back now either as he's 38 this August! A 28 year old Esteban would be amazing however.
  11. When we went to the 352 that pulled of the greatest escape at the back end of the season, I thought he was instrumental in making that work and played very well.
  12. Fair point. Perhaps I should have said N'Didi who cost substantially more. My point is, I wouldn't like to see us give up on recruiting in other leagues just because of one poor window when we've had considerable success doing exactly that over recent years. That said, I think Evans would be an excellent signing.
  13. Taking a punt on Mahrez, Kante and Vardy, none of whom were proven in the league we were playing in, turned out alright in the end.
  14. Yeah, I think you're right moving forward. I just think the bulk buying of Ascot runners on the eve of the meet was more a way of being part of it all. I'd recommend a trip to Aiden O'Brien's stables. He seems to win everything. ๐Ÿ˜„
  15. Yep, just need to find the horse racing equivalent of Steve Walsh when it comes to equine recruitment. They'll have won the Derby by this time next year๐Ÿ˜„ To to be honest I don't think they give one, just wanted to hob nob in top hat and tails with the great and the good at "ascut". As others have remarked, there are cheaper ways to do it, but they seem to be enjoying themselves.
