A lot of chat on here on splashing out £20m for a squad player. Iíd say we need to be getting better value to meet FFP regulations.

I couldn't care less if I tried what news papers or other fans think about us and FFP regulations. If the club deem a deal worth doing and they do it then they believe we are complying with FFP and PSR. I would say 90% of the noise being made from outside the club is absolutely nonsense or we already have a sale lined up and replacements ready to pull the trigger on.
There are bargains to be had out there but the going rate for a premier league player is probably around the 20 million mark. Just look at Chuckwemeka and Archer.

No to Phillips. Moved to Cit-eh and died a footballing death. Like Henderson just different oiled paymasters.

I'm perfectly in favour of a scouting policy that just sets a few tails on representatives from Palace and Brighton and gazumps them for whoever they find.

I'm amazed clubs don't just do this more.

His Dad is Bobby Brown and an Arsenal fan? Heís bound to try to get him to sign for them. But thatís his prerogative, I suppose.

He's just been called up to the England U20s for their upcoming games so we might get a chance to see him play. With no other knowledge he looks like a big lad for a fullback.

Can I take this opportunity to thank Bobby Brown for not having many famous songs, thereby killing off this punfest at birth. Every little step we can take to avoid such a thing must be enacted.

He was married to a crush of mine in Whitney Houston. I was upset at the time but no point getting so emotional about it.

Don't be cruel, for some of us the punfest is all we have.

I think I'm on the same wavelength here but how will I know?
