Hey Hackney. I read it on here just mentioned CB priorities and no mention of anything else - I’ve just searched around for 15 mins to find it but can’t - it was in one of the transfer threads randomly! 
 

Weirdly are you still based in Hackney? Just an enquiry as one of my best mates has a grand place in Hackney near the Tesco and I’m often down there for a beer!

You don’t have any ‘best mates’ do you Nick?

👌

Kristof who is always pretty much spot on with Belgian business (called our deals before) has said Samatta will be leaving soon, we’ve been linked and done business with Genk before 👀 

 

Wanted to put this in his thread but it’s locked.

 

 

I’ve only just seen that this has already been posted! lol ahhh well.

No is it any good?

 

I usually use The Kenton as it’s only a couple of minutes walk from Cassland Road near my mates place.

Food is good (Mexican) and you can't tell the difference between Vegan and Non Vegan Beer, Wine or Cocktails.

Inter trying to offload Lazaro as he hasn't settled since his move in the summer. Him and Ricardo could both play right back or right mid and I believe we have watched him before.

Kabak at Schalke looks another colossal Turkish centre half. 

 

Watching their game vs Gladbach, I see Michael Gregoritch has just joined them on loan too. Could have been ideal for us.

If we was going to sign anyone it would of happened by now.

 

Might aswel close transfer thread until summer.

 

Bloody boring !!!!!

 

Honestly hope we can hold onto top 4 with what we got but being honest we look tired worn out and without a Plan B

Having a superb debut is Gregoritsch. On his day he is unplayable.

Some of his passing was absolutely superb.

Yeah it was, he's such an unusual player. He's been poor for the best part of a season (back end of last and start of this) but Schalke have probably got a bargain because of it if there's a permanent deal in place. 

 

That pass in the first half that got their striker 1 on 1 with Sommer was pure wizardry.

Yeah, Benito butchered it though. They both played well mind.

Ashley Young from Man U still has a few years in him, his move to Inter & Roma doesn’t look like it’s going ahead maybe we could put a cheeky bid in him?

One of Manchester United's worst performers in the last 3 seasons, the wrong side of 30 and on a 100k a week. What could possibly go wrong?

On an aside, I woke up early this morning and had a nostalgic sky planner roam and am watching Leicester v Man Utd - from 21/09/14. It was one of the best games of live football I've ever seen - at the KP or anywhere else. As I type, its 3-3 with 77 mins gone - Cambiassso is knackered and has just gone off - we have Nugent, Moore, Hammond and De Laet in the side and Matty James who we signed a couple of years ago from Utd has just come on to make his Premier League debut. Vardy has got away with the most blatant shoulder barge in history and still managed to con a pen out of the ref 3 seconds later, which Nuge will convert before Vardy scoring his first Premier League goal on 79 minutes... oh and our record signing is on the pitch. His name is Leonardo Ulloa and he cost £8 million... and has already scored a bullet header from a Vardy cross.

 

Don't get me wrong we were pretty bad and went on a downward spiral after this game - but what a game this was. And think how far we've come since then. It's also really evident the way we are playing in one touch triangles that the football Pearson was getting us to play was the same style and groundwork that we saw in the following title winning season.

'Shoulder barge' = fine

'Shoved in back' = not fine

I remember getting home after the match and receiving an outage of Konchesky kissing the camera after we scored our fifth from a Liverpool supporting mate of mine and written over the top in caps was: THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH FOOTBALL WHEN KONCHESKY IS GOING ROUND KISSING CAMERAS.

Bournemouth trying to sign Jacob Bruun Larsen from Dortmund, he is very similar player to Ryan Fraser. I wonder if that could see Fraser sold this month rather than go for free in the summer? He's winding down is Fraser, very much like Eriksen at Spurs and a move now could be best for all parties.

Milan are dog shit as well, disgrace

Apparently before Milan signed Simon Kjaer they were looking at Aleksandar Dragovic, who wants to leave Leverkusen. The price is £8.5m or a loan deal.

 

If he left on decent terms (and he was just arsey with Puel for dropping him) I would take him again for 6 months if it means we get Benkovic a dozen games on loan somewhere. He and Evans were the only two players that ever looked comfortable playing next to Harry Maguire.

 

I can see something like that being our only bit of business - I'm not so sure any loan will be for a young(er) player because the ones like Rugani, Demiral, Todibo, Kehrer etc. who may have been on the market are seemingly not anymore. And the club will not sanction a big fee in January - we've spent about £2m over the last 2 windows; and only ever spent more than £6m on one player when in desperation (Ndidi as Kante replacement; Kramaric for survival goals).

 

And on the winger front - we wanted a striker in Jan 2016, and then it turned out Leo Ulloa had balls the size of planets. We wanted a CB in Jan 2017, we got Wague, and then Yohan Benalouane morphed into Paolo Maldini at the Calderon. Oh, and then we signed some half decent lad from Hull that summer.

 

Given we don't purely need numbers out wide (just quality), I think it is best we take the next four or five months to line up some proper targets and get them done in a much more favourable market. In the meantime, it's a battle between the other four to not be the one to be shipped out the door.
