I can't remember @dovahkiin if we've been posting Blaino on FTL's stuff here, but he's just said...

Twice agreed a fee re Lo Celso, twice RB have moved the goalposts. They're very much playing silly buggers.

In terms of players out, we can't physically kick them out the door and at the moment nobody wants players on the decline and those players want to be at top clubs.

Sessegnon - lord knows what's going on with that now. He'd said his goodbyes etc.

They need to sell as they admit and our deadline is in 9 days and their player has agreed to sign for us. What’s the issue. It’s their problem now. We had a deal.

Wouldn't be surprised if they both ended up joining but you can't deny that it's all gone a bit tits up. They've gone from the two players we were pretty certain on signing to seemingly both being in doubt.

I'm fine with us waiting this out. It makes sense to do so. But only if we've not put all our eggs in one basket and we give ourselves enough time to call it off and explore alternatives if another club comes in or Betis are silly enough to hold out. We simply have to set our own deadline to them and that has to allow plenty of time before the window closes. Otherwise we just leave ourselves with another gap in the squad to plug, which will be made worse by Eriksen leaving on a free transfer next summer.

Certainly explains why we went from very positive ITK a week ago, with the media saying we're closing in on a double signing, only for near radio silence on all fronts since. Really hope they both start to progress soon. Sounds like it'll all move very quickly once (if?) the fees are agreed.

Sounds like we'll get him a day or two before the season starts. Betis are rightfully trying to get as much as possible for him and hope we panic or get impatient because they are in less of a rush than we are to do the deal than we are.

To be fair it seems radio silence has ended again as since the weekend Betis have been on a PRopoganda offensive so maybe things are moving again hence the recent ITK on here on Betis behaviour.

I think the spanish press recycled the 'way apart on fee' story a few times but I know what you mean. Has seemed to pick up over there again since last night.

Seems similar to reports that were being issued just before Ndombele joined with the media reporting there was distance between the clubs on fees etc. Betis look sharp for sorting a high release clause but also reasonable for giving the player some leeway and then can agree a fee ‘in the region of’ that figure. I hope.

I’m sorry but I’m not having it that it’s all down to Betis and Fulham. Fair enough not saying every deal that doesn’t get done is down to Levy, obviously it’s sometimes probably down to us and sometimes down to them. If an agreement can’t be reached it can’t be reached. But ffs how it’s always the other club are fucking around and whatever else is a boring theme I just don’t buy

Not sure what else there is to take from information that says “it’s down to the other teams”. You clearly don’t believe that, and that’s fine. But I bet if any info filtered through that it was our fault you’d go all in on it.

What does that say? I suppose it says you have a view on something and will embrace information that backs that up and dismiss anything that doesn’t.

Each to their own. (y)

I can't remember his stuff ever making the Read Only so probably better off in whichever player thread is relevant until we know more about him.
Shame that if that’s where it goes as any info will disappear under hundreds of posts about Poch’s anger and how this is the worst transfer window ever...

Ali z in response to some point being made

Levy’s to do list :​
- offer Eriksen and Toby new deals (might as well try!)​
- get Sess and GLC deals over the line​
- try for Dybala​
- sell Nkoudou​
- sign a first team right back​

1) toby and eriksen have to want a deal, eriksen more likely.

2) trying

3) no idea

4) no takers

5) highly unlikely
