Crncic being missing was a long running joke many many years ago, and especially when he left, so perhaps you aren't acquainted with it. It's no biggie. Suggesting we wouldn't be interested cos he was in his 30's was funny, cos we have all long forgotten him, and he didn't turn out to be a world-beater after leaving.

Ah fair enough, no probs mate. I was only about 10 when he was here haha so cant remember what everyone’s opinion on him was at the time, thought I was the only one that remembered him lol!

Let’s be honest, nobody knows who we are in for or if we are going to sign anyone at all. I get the feeling this window isn’t going to excite anyone even if we someone!

This is FoxesTalk. We once spent an entire afternoon following Vichai's private jet across the Atlantic thinking it was going to pick up Aranguiz in South America before we realised it was on it's way to its annual service in Texas. We didn't even sign him.

We won’t buy anybody we’re linked with.  Fed up of wasting my time on here, seeing a thread has gone hot to learn it’s just drivel.  As I stated before, it’s best to follow John Percy as nobody else has a clue.

 

As a prediction, with no evidence whatsoever, think we’ll sign somebody like Wilfred Zaha and Ryan Bertrand, plus a Scottish Youth midfielder from Albion Rovers as one for the future.

Watford want around 40m for Sarr, huge money.

Think they paid about £30m, so depending on the contract they're probably entitled to their money back and more. Would avoid at that price personally.

Nearly turned it off after a minute, don't need a winger? Get in the sea Seb.

I actually couldn't believe my ears, I usually rate them on there but that's an outrageous claim and their reasoning was rubbish as well - because Barnes is good, which is fine, but are they forgetting we play with another?

 

I liked the idea of sensible transfers but in all honesty I think they try and be a bit too clever. I listened to one last summer about Manchester United saying they should sign Ander Capa from Eibar. Manchester United with all of their pulling power should go for somebody that probably Bournemouth could attract? If I'm Man Utd I'm wanting us in for players like Carvajal, Ricardo, Kimmich etc... in that position not an Eibar right back who's had a decent season.

If Ben Chilwell does go, I wouldn't mind us having a punt on Angeliño. He's been brilliant for RB Leipzig and not just last night, but also against Spurs and in a few Bundesliga games I saw after the restart.

 

Trouble is, on current form, he may leapfrog Mendy and Zinchenko in the Man City pecking order or Leipzig could attempt to sign him on a permanent deal, in which case we'd have no chance.

Yeah, personally don't think Man City would have re-signed him if they didn't see him as an eventual starter. Mendy is a liability and i'm not sure Zinchenko has a clue where he wants to play or what is his best position, the poor lad started off as a attacking right midfielder!

 

He'll be challenging for a starting spot next season, I think Man City would be in for Chilly if he wasn't going to.

That's because we are shopping at Lidl, judging by most of the links, when we should have been shopping at Waitrose .

 

 

Yes, I'm still not over it.   :(

I hear you, they looked just liked Ginger Nuts, even looked like it said McVities on the packet, but the taste! So so disappointed.  :(

Supposedly Origi is available this summer. He is certainly someone that ticks all of our boxes.  He adds another dimension the the attack and he is capable of playing out wide if needed. Brendan also signed him originally for Liverpool so clearly rated him. 

 

If he's going to cost less than edouard it should probably be considered

Matty longstaff (must be a pahallus pun here somewhere) must be worth a shout on a free? Has to be an upgrade on James, Mendy and dare I say it Hamsa at the min? Even if he is only bench he adds to the squad and despite being one ugly duck he can play a little.

Benfica getting Everton from Gremio for £18m, Waldschmidt from Freiburg for £15m and Vertonghen on a free. A very good few days for them and hopefully more evidence that sensible deals can be done this summer.

Wouldn't be free due to his age, the compensation we would have to pay would be heft I would think. However a free transfer to OH Leuvan and a season loan to us with an option to buy for £1. That would be well worth it. The kid has talent.

Last summer they got £110m for Felix, £35m for Jiminez, £20m for Jovic (bad business) and £20m for another striker they'd been loaning out for a few years. 

 

They signed a few players but still had a fair bit of money left from those deals.

What about a cheeky bid for Joe Worrall think we were linked to him around the time of his loan to Rangers

He was absolutely garbage in Scotland go on the Rangers forums even their fans thought so too. Obviously the Scottish league is poor but it's when I see guys like him who were absolutely hopeless go down and do well in the Championship I start to doubt it's quality. Sure it's competitive and an absolute slog playing twice a week almost every week but there are some very average teams with some very average players in it, guys like Joe Worrall being the case in point.
