dragon1 on rb: ship sailed on arrons, wba not selling right now, we are in talks with another rb
We’ve had a close eye on him for the last 18 months, however I’ve previously mentioned which club Max would prefer. Also we wasn’t one of the clubs that bid for him last summer.

It doesn’t necessarily go against Trix’s info. We may be talking to defenders, but may also not be pushing hard to being them in THIS window.
It's just that two ITK's have heard different things. Nothing more, nothing less. Whether we actually manage to sign a player or not is another matter.

No point spending huge cash on a players whose heart is elsewhere, including its on potential too so quite high risk on small, plus huge red flag for his allegiances ;) 😋 😙

dragon1 on not talking to defenders (trix' info):
Absolute nonsense we are in talks with defenders , he loves tang tho
I never said we weren't talking to defenders, I said we weren't pushing for them this window.

Lol, not that difficult to understand was it?

I think you said that we weren't "looking" so I can see why some people may have interpreted it that way to be honest.

Is the defender chat to do with Cancelo?? I've not even delved into the thread but I'd expect Pep to make it a no go.

I think given injuries and options the current priority order is:

High:
- ST to cover Kane
- DM to protect defence

Medium:
- Playmaker/#10 to replace Eriksen
- CM to link defence to attack (N'D and GLC can do this but injuries/integration still an issue)

Low:
LB/RB because Rose and Aurier

Given that I'd probably suggest Trix's info is on the money

Haven't we just got Gedson in for the cm spot?
I think our most pressing need is also the hardest to fill - someone to play up top.
I'd much rather look to that issue now and as Trix states, look to the defence in the summer.

Maybe the cancelo option comes up if city are going in on for Aarons. He may sort their home grown quota and would explain us being out of the picture on max

Moura, Son, Lamela, Parrot, Mourinho and Levy are all better Centre Forwards than Dier, Winks or Sissoko are defensive midfielders. DCM should be our number 1 priority and then CF.

Without wanting to drag this too off topic and get a paddlin' from A&C, I'm not so sure Jose is even looking at DM's. There's not been much linked by the ITK's either.

Can we still see an ITK barney though? I’ve ordered 1000 Trix shirts and they don’t offer a refund policy :cautious:

Cheers for the clarification though, I’m assuming there are conversations happening behind closed doors all the time in football that don’t necessarily turn into immediate transfers.

Countless conversations.

Holding midfielder to control the game. That is our number 1 priority. Until we address that we will continue to be utter shite.

We can live without a striker.

The only other thing we should be pushing for are decent full backs who can get up and down the pitch.

Seems some clarity needed, rather than confusion. Unless we sell first, we won’t purchase outright. It was not the intention to spend in January. But things change, and even magoo could see that. We were seriously interested in CB & RB. Would of dealt with loan and obligation in summer. Targets became too expensive, and unrealistic.

I am again told striker-wise, we ideally want loan with option.

if/when:barefoot: CE goes, there is a particular midfielder we would like to bring in. And that would be a straight purchase, with payments in summer, with some creative accounting similar to GLC being done. Due to the rise of JT, not as desperate to plug defensive gaps in this window, unless player on our list.

Eze in the summer, barring a calamity.

keep watching any whispers re ENIC. Likely to be true:censored:
