    Player Player Watch: Mousa Dembele

    He's a funny old player Good footballer and has had a lucrative career without ever playing for a big European club - gone under the radar a bit Anyway, back to Dembele... :cautious:

    Andre Gomes

    Enjoying the discussion, but I think a lot of these arguments are going to have to wait until after the transfer window closes. Only then will we see how our transfer policy has panned out and whether it's a 'brave new world' or 'business as usual'.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 18th June

    Call me crazy, but despite what the ITKs are saying, I think Martial is actually the most least likely deal of those three :LOL: I just can't get my head around why a rival, who's squad strength is closely matched to our own, would want to give us the advantage of a fantastically talented young...

    Andre Gomes

    Btw, the only concern I'd have with signing Gomes is if we bring him in to be a squad player I get the impression he's a 'confidence player' who needs to have a key role in the team At Barca he was a sub a lot of the time and also his position used to chop and change; that's not great for a...

    Andre Gomes

    If he's paired with Dier or Wanyama, then Gomes won't have to worry too much about breaking up play and getting 'stuck-in'. What he'll need to do is start pinging balls about the pitch and getting attacks moving quickly once we've recovered possession. Not only does he have the ability to do...

    Unless there's provision for a quick decision application, given the unique circumstances? Any Portugal legal experts on the site? :)

    Spain manager sacked

    The Spanish FA have probably taken legal advice on the situation, in preparedness for seeking damages in the future Their lawyers may have instructed to 'get rid' straight away to make it clear to all that they have a serious grievance with the manager, so much so that the working relationship...
