This is proof why you shouldn't believe any of those Rashica Kiyotake 2.0 links.



Ha ha, there needs to be more of this.

It was always good when Dr Xia was here for this - any spurious links and he would quash them immediately

Maybe the only good thing about him  >:(

COVID has done for us getting rid of most of our fringe players. If you're a championship side you're looking to sell with sod all income guaranteed, not take on the likes of Lansbury even on a free. We got lucky with Hogan as blose had the Bellingham money. Not that i think Lansbury would have agreed to move anyway...

Yep true, but can imagine the amount of time spent denying the bull shit that comes from ‘sky  understands’ 🤔😀

I wish you lot would lay off Sasa Curcic.  How many clubs can boast of a player voted Rookie Illusionist of the Year in BOTH Las Vegas and Reno Nevada?

Don't forget he also won the Serbian version of Celebrity Big Brother. 'Big Brother VIP Serbia'. Wasn't there also a story of him considering himself to be a real lothario/sex stud. He seems to fall into a category somewhere between "A bit of a character" and "Batshit Crazy".

I'm sure when he retired from football it was so he could spend his time making love to beautiful ladies instead, which is fair enough if you ask me.

And I've been to Croatia a few times, if the female population of Serbia is anything like theirs he was ridiculously spoiled for choice.
I'm in the fortunate position of being able to compare & contrast the two countries, and can confirm that this is the case.

So in case weren't aware here's some useful information
The deadline for transfer is the 5th October 11pm BUT!
The deadline for deals with EFL clubs is 16th October so we can still trade with clubs domestically. Not Premier league ones.
So maybe outgoings of loans as well as an incoming from Championship can be held fire till these later date and concentration on moves from premier league and overseas .

Interesting as there are a few players in championship who could be looking for moves after first few weeks of season .

Players at Bournemouth Brentford, Norwich , Watford keep eyes on.

Same with once we have squad sorted can shift out a few to EFL clubs

In my view the only trading after 5th October that should be allowed is outgoings to EFL clubs for loans etc. Otherwise the Premier League clubs who've missed the deadlines will just hoover up the talent and leave clubs starved again.

Still think Tammy is a possibility and a very good option.

I've posted this a few times - not least because he said it himself - but Tammy thinks his best position is as a wide (left) forward.

It is possible to accommodate both him and Watkins, even to rotate them in a game or naturally allow them to be fluid. It would also allow Grealish to move more centrally.

Though if the right type of CM/DCM is recruited (or Nakamba steps up considerably), I do see us operating with 4-2-3-1 at least some of the time as it would mean we are harder to break down in games when the opposition dominates possession. Certainly it is more compact shape than 4-3-3. UTV.

I'd probably go the other way and allow outgoings from EFL clubs (and the rest of the lower leagues) to the premier and abroad all season. If things carry on much longer we could lose 10 or more clubs this season and I think most supporters would rather lose a star player than their club.

Fulham are signing someone called Marlon (from Emmerdale FC?).

We should be all over that.

Central midfield is more of a priority.  I guarantee we'll all be saying it's not good enough very shortly.

Totally agree.

Could fill the Ornondroyd/Crouch role but he's probably a little long in the tooth now.

Tyrone Mings: Aston Villa defender signs contract extension until 2024

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11677/12078022/tyrone-mings-aston-villa-defender-signs-contract-extension-until-2024

The spine of the team are all on long-term contracts and that is good transfer business.

Still think we need 4 or 5 more this window as there is the risk of burn out as there are a lot of games in this covid-19 affected seasoned.

2 def 2 mid 1 forward but will be happy if 3 more come in before the window slams shut.............

So, a total of 9 new players?  - I think that's asking too much in terms of integrating more players.
Get a CMF and possibly a CB.

A little bit of experience would have been nice. I know we're not gonna get that with our "buy for potential/re-sale/moneyball" policy but i can dream ::)
