‘He’s broken his tibia and fibula but he should be fine for training on Tuesday.’ Said an enthusiastic Dean Smith.

 He’s probably gone and done and Micah Richards, broken eyelash out for nearly 4 years

Great great news, now get Maupay, Wilson and another couple of strikers signed.
DAVIES and Hogan in prem doesn’t fit.

Dybala and Neymar should do it. Pass on Bale though

Fuck Neymar the massive petulant show pony. Guarantee he won’t show up on a cold night in Burnley.

Good news everyone. Wesley’s shattered tibia which recovered in time to see him go shopping has now fully healed.

He does look a beast doesn't he - I think a few defences are going to get a bit roughed up this season

Can't see his legs. One could have been amputated for all we know

You’re right. He could be on RHM’s shoulders. I expect this to be the root cause of RHM’s next inevitable injury.

As you were everyone. Panic stations!

Love this kid

And if that is any kind of celebration I’d love to see that 20 times this season

I didn't catch all of it on TS but Tim Vickery was very complimentary of his ability and potential.

What I like so far is that he's confident enough in his own ability to let the ball get out from under his feet (Grealish is great at it as well). It's something i really like to see because it draws tackles so defenders often sell themselves out or give away fouls. It does mean that there will be times where he loses the ball in good areas but I think that's a price worth paying for the benefits it brings. I also like that he's good at playing people in but can also turn and run at people, it's what made Benteke so dangerous for us.

Belgian journo on the the BBC European football speaking very highly of Wesley saying he's suited to the PL and was the one player in their league last year that he thought could succeed over here.

It's what Gestede used to do too  :o

Not quite, the ball bounced off him a pretty long way when he tried to control it but it wasn't intentional, he just couldn't trap a bag of cement.
