  1. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Optimistic view: you need threads like this to make the epic ones worthwhile! Think of the next big one that rumbles on and we get the player; we'll look back and know we struggled through the forum's longest ever thread to get there!
  2. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Sorry, poorly phrased. "We sign no-one else"
  3. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    I've said before the only thing that gives me hope this will get done is the complete lack of any other activity. I mean, we've had little to no links with anyone else. I just can't get my head around this, the only scenarios I can see playing out are: We sign him for £108m or We sign no-one...
  4. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    All I can I say is this: I feckin hope you're right mate
  5. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    I have to admire the muppets who are sticking to their guns in this. You're all rock solid. The ONLY thing that gives me a tiny bit of hope is our complete lack of other transfer activity. It does suggest we've stuck all our eggs in the Sancho basket Rock solid muppets, I salute you but I've...
  6. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Been lurking in this thread solidly since about July... Have been absolutely convinced in both directions during that time but I'm coming out firmly for this being a Thiago/Vidal... Will still be here every feckin day cos I'm committed now but that's my conclusion. Sadly.
  7. Donny van de Beek | van de Beek's father: "[Moving to United] a dream come true."

    Thread title change? Good news as adds much needed quality depth to our midfield. A Bruno injury dismantles the current team IMO. Like all I'm hearing about his attitude/work ethic too.
  8. Which Football Transfer did you become most obsessed with?

    I think this thread is the right time to say it. I'm a total transfer window hussy. I don't spend too much time on the caf when the actual football is being played but I'm all over it in the summer. All in all, I think I'm a pretty pure Muppet. Greatest saga has to be Pogba cos actually we got...
  9. Harry Maguire involved in incident with police in Greece - conviction nullified by appeal, full retrial pending

    I look perfectly fine, mate. Thanks for asking. Good response to what I actually said. Just as a reminder, I said that Mykonos (and Greece in general) are places you can go to for things other than getting drunk. You said our players should be 'banned' from going there which, as previously...
  10. Harry Maguire involved in incident with police in Greece - conviction nullified by appeal, full retrial pending

    What an absolute load of crap. I've travelled to Greece extensively and, yes, you can go to party spots... Or y'know, you can go to one of the many beautiful spots that are not in those areas (i.e. the majority of the island). Ibiza is also an amazing island for many things other than getting...
  11. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Yeah and ultimately I think that's how I see it playing out. I think we'll get him in October.... which means this thread has got some way to run
  12. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Hell yeah but I'm just trying to stay calm and believe (hope) there's a strategy. I want the Kermit gif to come out as much as anyone though!
  13. Jadon Sancho | Left out of BVB squad to face Bayern due to illness allegedly.

    Lots of people criticising the club's approach here. I think we should judge the transfer window when it shuts, not now. I'm as keen as anyone to get Sancho and other additions but this is a bizarre market with no real precedent. I think IF the club's approach is to be patient and try and take...
  14. Post match vs Sevilla

    Honest feelings are, firstly, pissed off we lost when we had so many chances. But I really think we're on the cusp of being a really exciting team. Players get better playing together and I think we have the nucleus largely correct. We just must add some quality into the squad. A centre half...
  15. Odion Ighalo - 6 month loan deal done

    Surprised how many have said this. Seriously, you don't remember him from Watford? He (briefly) scored for fun in the Premier League a couple of years ago!
