Gandalf's latest activity

  • Figure quoted was 5 million a game back in May.
  • got to get a winner, I want to laugh at Julien Laurens tears so badly right now.
  • Makes sense if going to a back 4. The reports on Telles are that he is not the greatest defensively and so Shaw is the safer option away from home when we are bringing on a Mid for a Defender.
  • Seems to be a lot of overreaction to VDB on the bench. Given the formation he doesn't have an obvious role, McTom and Fred are being picked as a unit and he can't really argue he should be in the side ahead of Bruno at this point. He might well...
  • Gandalf replied to the thread Joe Rodon to Spurs.
    Not saying Rodon would be a nailed on starter, just that Jose may be looking at players who are comfortable in a 3 to get the best out of his wing backs. I agree on Tanganga, frankly he should be starting ahead of Sanchez.
  • And right now I would bite their hand off.
  • Gandalf replied to the thread Joe Rodon to Spurs.
    Having signed Doherty who is better at wing-back than as an orthodox right back and Reguillon who is clearly more of an attacker than a defender this could be a sign that Jose is looking to play a back 3 at least some of the time. Rodon has...
  • Cavani and Martial unavailable and I am assuming that Telles won't be rushed in considering he was in South America playing on Tuesday and will not train with the squad until tomorrow. I also would not drop Maguire as although he is clearly...
  • Never understood why the discussion was who should partner Maguire. If it’s just 2 from 3 then Lindelof and Bailly are our best pairing.
  • Gandalf replied to the thread David Brooks.
    Brooks does not fill a need and the rumor being quoted is about him going to Sheffield not us. Time to take a cold shower lads, we are not signing anyone else.
  • Maybe not a gamble but it is a developmental signing not the finished article at that price, early returns suggested we had found a diamond but in the end he was a player with less than 50 games at Championship level under his belt and badly in...
  • I could imagine a deal with may be 15m up front with the potential to rise to 25m if he hits a number of milestones. Would not sell for less than we paid for him at this point as we are not overloaded with wide players and he can be used to...
  • Did not hurt my feelings a little bit and it is cute that you think you could. Calling players dog shit is just a reflection of your immaturity and possibly insecurity also. I would be happy with a permanent deal but as most of the links seems...
  • The one thing that gives a sliver of hope is that the medical community are increasingly telling us that a return to "normal" is years and not months away and if that holds true until next summer the impact on finances will ean that nobody will...
  • Charming. Coached properly he is a decent PL winger, probably not United level sadly but he will have a good career, he needs better coaching and to play for a team with a more straight forward attacking style. Calling our own players dog shit...
