Liverpool's Ryan Kent also being linked. £10mill move, Mail saying even if we don't go up.  Must be true then if it's the Mail!!

He did well to button it for 4 months.

Anyway, back to transfer speculation, according to The Meaning Evil we're set to beat Celtic and Rangers to the signing of Charlton midfielder Joe Aribo.

He has looked good infirst half today. Just said to my lad we should go for him if we lose tomorrow

Kent, Aribo and the lad from Luton are all decent young players. If that is the way our transfers are headed then would not be upset. They wont all come off, but the ones that don't can be moved on (so long as contracts are no too big) and the ones that do will have a big increase in value if we end up selling.

We will still need some experienced signings as well though, but please no more last paychequeue slackers.

I felt a bit sorry for him - He doesn't appear to have a life away from the internet as he's on here 24/7.  I thought I'd cut the poor bloke some slack and allow him to continue his "emotional" ride.  It clearly means a lot to him.

"you'll be ignored from now on" and yet still going on about it the next day. That you keep insulting someone because they know more than you do is a tad weird.

If we're putting this out there - even if it doesn't actually come off- it's a smart move.

Rather than the win-or-bust (quite literally in our case) narrative that started up just before last year's final, with Bruce paying for the Wembley suits and the first whispers of the unpaid tax bill.  That weighed heavy on the shoulders of our lot, and we know the rest.

Losing tomorrow will be an absolute pisser, there is no doubt about it. But we should be in a better position to come back and mount a serious challenge next year whatever happens.

If we lose tomorrow, we go up as Champions next season.  Already linked with Aribo, James and Kent.  Good players.

Possibly - Although who would have bet their house on Norwich &Sheff U finishing top 2 this season?  The league is unforgiving and conjures up no end of twists and turns.  There is talk of PSG owners investing in Leeds.  If this transpires to be true, they will be one hell of a force next season.  Fulham's owner is quite ambitious as well.  The longer we stay down, the more difficult it seems to become to get out.

I might be missing something but I saw nothing at all in Aribo that suggested he will be the kind of player we would be after. Tall and clumsy.

When £10m is buying youth players that have been on loan at lower league clubs (and Scotland) I would think its time to invest in the academy and the clubís infrastructure. 

The money Chelsea, Liverpool and Iíd imagine City are projected to make from selling reserves is insane sums.

Aribo has a super power.
Yesterday he wore the cloak of invisibility for most of the game
