    Back when the pool was livid, Owen Coyle was wearing shorts in November, Adam Johnson was better than Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott was the future

    Leicester spending 22m on a player

    They have multiple times in the past but yeah I agree.

    If you're a mid table/europa level team, sell your top player to a mid table epl team, hope they don't settle and then get them on loan.

    They paid like 30 for Slimani. Never would've thought they'd hang onto Mahrez and Vardy this long.

    I’m really glad E&* is allowed back at Compton and Molineux again. Their reporting was shit when they were banned and everything they put out was essentially the kiss of death.

    ie. Sako going nowhere! then being sold that afternoon

    Bayern bid €60mil for Leon Bailey and were denied. Would break the record transfer fee by €20mil. Guess KHR wasn’t kidding about opening the checkbook.

    Edit: Leverkusen want €100mil. Bailey also informed the board he wants to go to Bayern. €60mil was the lowball jumping off point.

    If we’re keeping Lewa around another year or so the only thing we really need is a winger so Bailey or Malcom, make it happen, money shouldn’t be an issue with the sale of Douglas Costa coming in plus probably moving Vidal for too much to someone stupid like Man U.

    True and in the interest of full disclosure, I’d be pissed if a club tapped up my 18 year old wunderkind. I watched that kid in the U-17’s last year, he’s a fucking stud.

    This is likely the most important signing we make this summer.



    Back 3 of Coady, Boly, Bennett was unbeatable in the Championship. Bennett may be the weak link here so I expect we will shop him, Batth, Miranda, and Hause.



    We could do without Leo, Afobe, and Vinagre. I would love N’Diaye to be permanent.
