Loftus-Cheek not in the squad today ....
... just saying
I'm sure he's on a ridiculous wage - approx £150,000 a week....


We pay the above wages these days 😉

Tuanzebe gets better the more time he's injured/benched which seems to be all the time. I'd rather Engels was bjorn again and given a second chance.
Every player does with a long term injury - Richard Dunne was the best.
Ahem, Wesley.

Milivojevic would be a good pick up imo. Was on the bench for Palace yesterday so not sure whether he's carrying an injury or out of favour but he's a proven premier league DM who I imagine they'd sell for 15m.

Agreed. If we could get him for anywhere near that figure it would be rude not to.   Him or Capoue could come straight in and hit the ground running. Both strong, physical presences in the centre of the park with a bit of a nasty streak.  We need that. Both would be fine until the scouting system finds younger and better.

Quality player but he is Palace captain isn't he? My bet was he was carrying an injury to not be starting.

I think they said on MOTD that he returned from a quarantined country so missed weeks of pre-season training.

Could be something in that although he did start in league cup at Bournemouth.

Put it this way if McGinn is on the bench against a top 6 team this season some on here will probably put posts that he's leaving in January.

Fabian Schar is another I'd look at signing, was Newcastle's best CB under Benitez. Bruce might have a rethink after the way they defended today.

Kosovan journalist saying Werder Bremen have been contacting a lot of European clubs over Rashica. We are however in pole position and he is happy to move to England.

According to a Kosovan journalist the finishing touches to the Rashica transfer are being done.  No idea if your average Kosovan journalist is akin to Percy.

Add me to the list of people that know nothing of Rashica's body of work, or had even heard of him a fortnight or so ago, yet are more excited about this signing than any other in a very, very long time. I've even found out the Kosovan pronunciation of his name.

Thing is why shouldn’t Rashica take his time and make the best decision for his career? I don’t blame him one bit for that. He’s at the perfect age to play at a high level and I am sure CL level clubs might be after him. We’re a club that just survived in the PL by the skin of our nuts. We have tremendous potential but he needs to see that and we need to sell that to him. As we did with Martinez. The one thing I imagine we can offer that others may not is wages and exposure in the PL. He’s not at very top end so won’t get top offers but we are probably a very good one despite not being in Europe.

In my opinion he could be the player that adds the final touches to what has been a decent start to the season. He adds another dimension to the side and would, although a different kind of player, give us cover if Jack was out of the side. Fingers crossed this happens.

Still can't see it happening.

Meanwhile at Mendes Wanderers, 1 Portugal International moved out to make room for another coming in.

I'll reserve judgement on that till we've played today. I'm no pessimist, but I would like to see how they approach a game that is - on paper - winnable.
Re Rashica, I know nothing about him.

I’ve never been so excited since we signed Sasa Curcic
