Released by us at 16. And hes not 26 year old Jamie Vardy rapid but certainly isnt a a slouch. 

Is there any reference to him being with us before being released? Can't find anything.

 

Also, apparently he didn't sign for Wolves because of an undisclosed medical issue - any ideas?

....he spent a long time waiting for his big move, waited too long and looks like it was a bad choice!!!

I do not believe he could consider us good enough to come here, he didn't before.

All he has to do is look at the Table and he might see were better than he thought ?!

6th paragraph in regards to him being with us

Reason he failed his medical seem to have been kept confidential

 

Other than a 3 month ankle ligament injury in 2016, he hasn't really had any injuries at all in his career

Thought we might have gone for Toney last summer and would’ve saved ourselves a few quid if we had

 

Shame we can’t tempt Haaland here with the offer of a gaff on the Saff 

To be fair he was a failure at Newcastle a few years ago, so to go from Peterborough straight to the top half of the premier league is a big ask.

Just watched a video talking about our transfer policy. Incredible stuff when you think about how young the players we've brought in have been. Probably the best transfers in the last 5 years for any team in Europe. Of course we'll have some duds like all teams but it's incredible how well we've done.

I keep thinking how we bought 19 yr old Fofana intending to  blend him in gradually with the squad, but got a CB injury so we put our trust in him and he stepped up.  This enabled Ndidi to continue playing in midfield and our team to retain its accustomed shape. Compare with Liverpool, who brought in Kabak (and the guy from Preston) to cover for their CB problems, but instead of blooding them immediately, continued to play Henderson at CB.  I think the disruption caused by him missing from midfield has been the main reason for their decline.

Yeah I know about his time at Newcastle and he would’ve been a risk but the signing of pretty much any striker is.  I can’t believe how Werner has underperformed so far. But Toney would have cost peanuts for us relatively speaking  last year and we would still get a return if it didn’t work out for him here.

In fairness we did spend a fortune on Fofana so I’d have expected him to do well

I'd have Lookman here as competition with Barnes for the left wing spot 

I was saying this at work.. Going to Germany did him the world of good. Looks quality and would give Barnes some time out

Would Lingard have been so bad?

I think the only problem with lingard is he goes off the boil.. On loan until the summer he'd have been perfect.. Long term you'd end up with an expensive bench warmer

I suggested he wouldn’t be a terrible signing about a year ago on here and honestly the reaction was like I’d suggested Hitler was a decent bloke. Absolute outrage

Was he a bit of a rotter then? :)

Made the same suggestion at the start of the window.

Would anyone take Almiron (or however you spell it, took me six  attempts to type that name... bloody phone). He has pace and is full of energy and running and does the defensive work too and plays across the front. Clearly not a first 11 but as back up? If we can get him decently priced.

No. Would take Saint Maximin though
