Any relation to Richard/Michael (?) Cunnah, our rarely-spotted former exec?  The more cunning we have, the better.

He feels like if we are about to go and smash our transfer record to bring in a shit-hot striker there would probably be better options.

But (a) it's very difficult to come up with who that might be and (b) exactly the same was said (including by me) before he went off to Roma and became the new Batistuta. First season, anyway.

Linked with Acuna (Argentina left back from Seville) and Mikel (Ex Newcastle midfielder at Real Sociedad) today.

Acuna had a bit of a mare in the first half for Argentina yesterday though I did think that Chris Sutton was bullying him a bit too much. He's a grumpy cnut though.

If we are raiding skintprick Serie A teams, I'd rather Vlahović. Younger, better strike rate and more of an all round game than Tammy, Tammy, Tammy, Tammy. Though I certainly wouldn't be heartbroken to hear we had re-acquired the latter.

Vlahovic is a good shout. We wouldn’t stand much chance normally but juve’s situation might mean a fire sale.

He only moved last season for £70m, financial strife or not they’ll be looking to get pretty much the same back.

They will take £25 million and they will be bloody grateful. Honestly, pesky upstart clubs.

If Tammy was the new Batistuta I’d say pay whatever they bloody asked for. Unfortunately, he’s not.

Bit like his time at Villa, great at the start but once the opposition worked him out he wasn't as effective. Don't look back.

I've read a few people saying 'don't look or go back' regarding Tammy but it's not as if he was our player anyway.

We signed James Milner after he'd been here on loan and that wasn't a mistake

They're not. They're not as repulsive as their neighbours but still racist twats.

There's rumours of Merino from Spain, but, I fear, they are pulling the wool over our eyes.

It wouldn't be baa'd business IMO.
