I love how first people moan we haven't signed anyone, then complain at the prices being possibly paid to bring in some amazingly talented players. 28m for RS is a steal in this market or any market to be fair.

It should be noted that you slags have had two exceedingly easy cryptics to deal with from me this summer.

You're due a tough one.
Bring it on goat
Something else I made very clear is that I have no idea what the cryptic will be or who it'll be about. No idea at all. None.

There's nothing to be read into it other than when the time is right and I get the opportunity, you're getting a hard one.


Which again, oh fucking hell, how many more mum jokes can one make?

Well maybe if you extracted you arm from up The Goats backside for just a minute you'd have time to come up with one! :cautious::D

As someone posted further back in this thread, where Foyth and Sessegnon are concerned, maybe there's a realisation that if we don't buy then now, at the clubs asking price, we could be blown out of the water when going back for them at a later date.
We are just catching them before they realise their potential and get price tags and clubs chasing them, that we just can't live with. Perhaps not originally planned to be impact for this season, but looking at the bigger picture instead.
Like the 2 dembeles that we were interested last year...

Exactly, seeing the likes of Mbappe going for €200m, Sessegnon for £28m is a steal in my opinion

How great is it for a club like Fulham to get £28m fo RS though? They could have lost him for nothing earlier in the window but they deserve the big payout. This is a great deal all round. Nobody would be complaining about the money if he wasn't close to leaving for nothing. That shouldn't really matter though. It should just matter that we'll be getting a top class young prospect that fits our mould for what is in this market a good deal.

I'm not expecting Rose to be sold still. I think RS is going to go the same way as Bale and move higher up. I am expecting Nkoudou to make way. He didn't make the squad last week with Sissoko starting so he obviously hasn't done enough to impress. To think come December when the fixtures come thick and fast we could have Sessegnon, Barkley and Lamela competing with Son, Eriksen and Alli. We just need Janssen to come good and we'll be laughing.

After a slow start to window and many people complaining it finally looks like we could end up with one hell of a squad come September 1st. That is why it is silling for people to complain and moan so much about our window before it even closes.

You might be right about making way but GKN is injured, which is why he didn't make the squad

Incredibly positive ITK today. I am very excited about the possible incomings that we might have before the Burnley game :)

Match thread for match talk of course, but think big and think positive my friends - new signings are worth getting excited about!

Nice that ITK is linking us to players like Aurier and RS, and great signings they'll be. However it's obvious it's the other end of the pitch where we need investment , I seriously hope we are looking for some power and pace , if there's a chance of Martial we have to get him.

Sterling=£50 mil
stones=£50 mil
Barkley on a longer contract=£50+
ox with 12months left =£30-35 mil

RS 28 mil now is good or it will be £50+ mil in a sessions time and out of our price range

I don't think the 28 was insinuating the money. It was shirt no.? Correct me if i am wrong? A&C is gonna make the cryptic next time seriously hard, like Demebele hard.

Can you read?

Unless the fella is wearing the number 28 million in which case, I take it back.

Just back from the game. Had a chat with Graham Roberts who was schmoozing the Club Wembley crowd. He said Rose would go and Martial is still a possibility. Then he said we'd score three goals today :)
