Who was it we announced on the OS as a signing in the late Doug Ellis years, only for the transfer to then not happen?
David Unsworth?

That did actually happen, just not for very long!

Just remembered, it was Craig Bellamy from Newcastle.

The Bellamy thing I'd completely forgotten.

Must be a centre half on the way out, can only think it might be Mings. If we get anywhere close to £35-40m for him though it will be a good deal for us.

Mings influence is deep though - that would be a big loss - although if you’re beaten by the big boys that’s a good replacement

Do we know if he plays on the left or the right? - is this the exit door for Mings?
Just watched a video of his 'best' highlights and he looks naturally right footed to me. So I think the answer to your question is no.

I think he’s been bought to partner Mings.

Great news! Another Brazilian Villain!
What about Tarkowski? Is that deal still on?
I hope Tarkowski's nowhere near VP except playing for the opposition. Having played for a team of thugs, I don't see where he fits into Gerrard's style of play

I think we’re sig.ning our new captain.
Unless he speaks English, I'd be surprised. He needs to be able to ditch out instructions on the pitch.

I have no recollection of us announcing that, at all. He's the sort of massive arsehole we could probably have done with over the years. We've tended to be far too nice.

He's going to be useful in the trenches

He's gonna build one to make sure the opposition don't score or put opposition players in there instead of in his pocket.

The Athletic have a piece on him today saying that he is a right-footer but plays on the left side.

Still subject to personal terms. Handchopping Beheading Homophobe Misogynist United could hijack it yet. Born in Birmingham.

Not being hijacked. Any chance of that and the club wouldn't have announced it. Sevilla announced it too.

You can relax.

Never rule out the Saudis when it comes to hijacking anything.

The clip I've watched shows he's got a great eye for a pass, which is encouraging

Born in Birmingham.

Really?

Er, no.

Well, you never know. Any idea why he said it?

I thought he meant that he (the poster) was worried about the move being hijacked, and that trait of being convinced everything is going to wrong is a trait of people born in Birmingham.

Gotcha. Good point.
