With Jota potentially off to Liverpool, Rashica to Wolves may well crank up, they were linked earlier in the window.

Some French newspaper reckons we're in for Danny Rose

https://le10sport.com/football/mercato/exclu-mercato-psg-danny-rose-pour-remplacer-juan-bernat-la-reponse-518883

How did he get on at Newcastle last season?
Pretty decent to be fair, surprised Bruce didn't sign him pernamently unless he doesn't want to settle oop North.

Rose is from up north - so that may not have been the issue.

Doubt it. Rashica isnít Portuguese and Mendes isnít his agent.

Weren't we very close to signing Alli one January window under Lambert when he played for MK Dons? Think he was at Bodymoor for talks but Spurs came in for him.

He had the choice of us or Spurs.

He chose Spurs, so fuck him and the horse he rode in on, the gibbering fucking simpleton. You only get the chance once*

He comes across as a complete moron in that Spurs thing, too, as others have mentioned, even by footballer standards of intelligence.



* unless you are Andy Gray or Sid or Steve Hunt.

Or Steve Staunton

I think Mourinho has ruined a few of them with his anti football. Dele Alli looked great under Pochettino.

His form fell off a cliff in Poch' final season to be fair.

When I read Liverpool were paying £35 million for Jota I thought Purslow and Lange were after a knighthood. I never remember Wolves have a decent one. Mendes moving players on and churning them through at Wolves, I read Doherty had taken him on as his agent too before he moved to Spurs (might be rubbish) but both he and Jota look under market value at £15 and £35 million.

Doncaster lad, I remember him on sky sports news when he joined Newcastle saying he wanted to come back up North because the chippies are better.
His agent is his uncle Mark Rankine (ex of Wolves & Preston among others. He scored against SHA  in the play-off semi in the last minute. Preston won on penalties.
Not that any of the above is important or interesting.

If the thought of Birmingham didn't impress him
can you imagine what he'll think of the Black Country

They'll be better than London for sure, but inferior to West Midlands chippies  which are the standard bearer from my vast experience.

I'm from Telford but you'd have to drug, gag and bind me to get me there again.

It worked last time, I'm not changing a winning formula.
