Mahrez - Total Rubbish

Barkley deal long way off or close - long way

Italian link - Still Waiting to Hear

Anything is close - Close to cape canaveral in Florida
(nothing)
I'm still holding out hope that the Italian link is Keita Balde (not sure if JJ has ever rubbished the idea of us going for him). Lazio's President has said there are no offers from Inter or Juventus, but there are from teams abroad. He would be such a clever signing for us.

ITK states that we are doing business. Dele, eriksson and Sonny were immense for us last season. Lamela is due to come back, Young Edwards is coming through. Any incoming has to be someone of the same high level not some shithouse who is only at West Ham's level. There is room in the side otherwise Sissoko wouldn't have been playing as a right attacking mid last season. I think we are shopping in a very niche market to get someone of that calibre but on our wage structure. You are then asking that person to uproot their life and change everything and even possibly move to a new country. That's what's potentially taking time.
It's Fucking Eriksen.

It's not hard.

Not to be a dunce, is JJ implying he doesn't know who the "Italian" player is?

I'm all about the Barkley move, hopefully the Italian is a RB.

COYS...big game tonight!

Are we really playing guess the Italian/I hope the Italian is.........AGAIN?

Everyone has been named. Every Italian player going back to 1977 has been named. Every player who's ever played for an Italian club has been named, going back to John 'the gentle giant' Charles. Italian Opera stars have been named, ice creams have been named, even Lasagne got touted as was the cast of 'I Claudius'....... Fucking hell, a week's holiday in Tuscany was even suggested.

Isn't it about time we just waited to see?

I don't mind not making big signings. I'd be fine with a couple of young players with potential. Maybe a RB to replace Walker and rotate with Trippier and one other. What I am pretty frustrated about is that for the 921st year in a row we will not do our business in time for the players to be ready for the start of the season. Even after getting burned with doing last second deals at horrible prices, we still do it. As if Sissoko would have been 40m if we signed him in July.
