I absolutely love our club for the way we’ve handled this. It’s amazing to think we’re making Manchester United look like transfer amateurs ???

This is reminiscent of us trying to get Leo in .....

 

and if they push the deal theough too late cor us to get the remainder of our business done then I suggest we will be the ones who end up looking like amateurs 

 

One hopes that this has all been agreed a few days ago and we have going about our business getting players in with the knowledge that he is defo going and the monies we have to spend as a result

That contradicts itself anyway. Leicester want £85m yet they've never revealed in public how much they want. Sky are on the same level as the sun and mirror these days. 

They’re all one and the same. Red tops, spouting over dramatic rubbish to sensationalise stories and pull in people that are gullible enough to believe in fake ITKs.

 

I think the thing that’ll irritate me the most about this entire transfer saga, is that these fake ITKs, who have been shooting fish in a barrel for the past 2 months, will now claim to be just that.

I have a feeling this deal is pretty much done but Sky will be asking clubs to wait until Thursday to complete the deal so to make it an "exciting" deadline day

You want to buy in January? Glad you're not running a Premier League football club.

 

Midfield cover like James and King? Good luck with competing on three fronts.

 

Centre backs like the error prone Soyuncu, a 35 year old Wes and the unproven Benkovic? Sure, that'll get you top 6.

 

4 wingers? Like the Ghezzal that has been abused non stop by the fans, Demarai Gray whose attacking returns are worse than Maguire's, and another unproven force in Barnes.

 

If you're happy with the squad as it is, you're easily impressed.

No ones ever happy with the squad, but we ain’t getting 2-3 more players in, what we’ve got is what we’ve got. We’ve got players on 70 grand a week that we can’t shift, what we going to do with them?

Why would any club listen to sky and do that?

I remember some City fans being delighted with the £11m for Heskey, shame we spent the lot on absolute dirt.

I was happy with £0.8m for Lineker

The article states he has told BR that he is not in the right frame of mind to play.

Maybe I'll phone work in the morning and tell them I'm not in the right frame of

mind to come in.

I'll break this to you gently.....not everything you read in the papers is true.  Sorry,

He has withdrawn his services   told BR that his head isn’t in it 

 

that’s strike in my job 

 

“boss my head isn’t in it , can’t fit those windows Friday so I’m sitting that job out, I’m on strike till you let me move to Anglia Home improvements” 

 

 

Impressed with your knowledge of what is said within the confines of BR's office.

Not everything is false, either. If Maguire is genuinely keen on the move and thinks we’re blocking it, it is possible that he’s not in the right frame of mind to play. It’s not implausible.

General opinion amongst the pundits is that we have one of the most exciting young sides in the prem., and we are rated as one of the sides most likely to break into the top six.  We have current international representatives playing in virtually every position on field, & still more on the bench  Yup, I'm impressed.

In all honesty yes he is.  They had an awful season by their standards last year but still finished sixth and 14 points ahead of us.  Let's not forget that the previous year they finished second and won the FA Cup.  

 

They will be better next year and hopefully we will too but their worst season would probably be better than our best, the 2016 miracle excepted of course.

 

I don't think Harry would be wise to wait for Man City.  They'll never pay £80-90m.

Fully agree, that's what some here, because of an obvious but understandable bias, refuse to see.

 

No matter how shit they are at the moment, he still has realistically more chances of silverware with them than us. I like him, he behaved like a true pro all along but I never saw him staying here more than 3 seasons. He's a very good defender and a starter in England's XI, it was clear as hell that he's going to move at some point.

 

They never had and certainly won't for Maguire. They don't have the same defense problem as MU and rely much less on their defense since they confiscate the ball most of the time. For them a holding midfielder/successor for Fernandinho was the priority. I doubt it ever was considered as a serious alternative.

Take the next offer which will hopefully be around £85 Million.

Give a chance to Soy & Benko.

Pocket the cash for the Stadium Redevelopment!

Thanks Harry...

If this is true, well played everyone at lcfc.  :appl:

 

I said last week if they mess us about, just start increasing the fee.

 

We are brilliant.  

 

(Assuming this is true of course).

If he goes I hope we have the alternative ready to sign immediately. This is all a bit last minute for my liking. 

 

Maguire deserves his chance, if he chooses to go, then fair enough. He has done more than enough here to warrant a hero's goodbye.

 

But I do resent him slightly if he downs tools tonight, he's been part of our entire preseason, if he felt that we were blocking the transfer he should have made his intentions clearer much earlier in the window.

Has no-one considered that raising the asking price is the one thing that will really piss off the player??

 

If we believe the “realistic” part of what has been written, at the start of the window Harry told Leicester his intentions, and the club told him he could leave if we got a bid of x amount. (Possibly £80m, but who knows for sure).

 

From what we can see, he’s gone about things the right way, spoken to the club in private, got on with training, played in whichever team he’s selected for in pre-season, not done any interviews, not publicly put out a statement, not put in an actual transfer request.

 

If Leicester start moving the goalposts, and reject a bid that meets what they told Harry they would accept, he’s (quite legitimately) gonna get pissed off. He may then feel it is time to put in a request, speak out to the media etc, as he may now believe the club is going back on it’s word??

 

I’m all for squeezing Man Utd for every penny we can, but not at the risk of Harry making moves that will jeopardise what we’ve already been offered. One word from Harry in public and Man Utd might turn around and say “right, things have changed, £60m or we totally walk away”, and then what are we left with? Less than we wanted, or a very unhappy player that has publically asked to leave?.

 

If Man U actually offer £80m, I think for our own sake we NEED to accept it, before we lose the upper hand!

But he is the king of the knock-downs at the back post, if my memory is not deceiving me. I do think he should score/assist more, but defences know what's coming with him, and just throw anything they can land at him.

 

I'd say he, like Huth before him, was one of the most fouled players at set plays. Perfect for VAR really.

 

£78+10 would do it for me, in terms of value this is peak Harry.

Yeah in fairness it could also just be a system thing as well

Hmmm not sure that's fair. It sounds like he's always been honest about being interested in the move, but understanding that the price needs to be paid. It was said he's still going to be turning up for training on Saturday, so it's just this match that he's sitting out of - and we can understand that with the potential for injuries and the implications for everyone concerned. 

 

Still have a slight gut feeling it won't happen, as they won't agree to a fee and payment structure we are happy with. But then I have said that all along about Brexit too, so maybe I just live life in denial!
