      Dembele is top quality no doubt but his injury record already at his age is extremely concerning for me so I'd pass on that move.

      Man what a fall from grace for Dembele. Unless cheap i don't think i really want him either, and given how much he cost Barcelona i doubt they'd be willing to let him go cheap either.

      Such a nice way to put it. In truth every party is haggling to get the best deal for themselves. Buyer, seller, player and agent.

      I won't be surprised if someone comes up and says the player is willing to sacrifice development and winning things for wages and bonuses. I'll have to respectfully disagree on that. Of course you've got to go out there and earn as much as you can while securing a starting role consistently.

      Today I heard club are taking their time with brewster, determined he gets the right club, treating the sale like a loan deal.

      I was already of the opinion that because we have so many midfielders that 4th choice CB was going to be Fabinho's role to get him more playtime. He having that fantastic display against Chelsea i think only solidifies that belief.

      My only problem with that is I think he’s our most important midfielder, especially against the big teams, whenever we play a more attacking team and he isn’t there, you can literally see the gaping hole, so I want there to be another option to distance him from that responsibility, because if he’s fit, he’s the first midfielder on the team sheet for me.

      If Thiago and Henderson play, I'm ok with Fabinho at CB if it's needed.

      Brilliant. That's the power of Michael Edwards' deal structuring.

      Did I read correctly? He collected money like a sale while masking the deal as a loan that retains our rights to the kid? He's the master of deal making. Could have been doing deals on Wall Street. "He's actually a loan but pay me money upfront as though it's a sale". Give me just half of his brilliance. That would do.

      Burnley apparently close to a deal for Harry Wilson worth £15m. Sky reporting it so take it with a pinch of salt.

      That would be unfortunate for Wilson to go play thug football.

      He could find some joy from set pieces for them.

      I think with the news that crowds won't be returning any time soon, we might be a little more like to accept deals for some of our fringe players that we wouldn't have accepted beforehand. Not sure what the financial difference will be on offers from player to player, but we might not be as inclined to hold out for better offers on some of them, because they may be less likely to get any better now.

      but I thought we don't care about money, I mean we are happy to lose £25m on Gini next summer right?

      We are not losing anything on Gini. The club has been shrewd in its transfer business, getting top value for players who weren't necessarily offering anything on the park. Gini is a first team player who made 47 appearances for us last season.

      You are like watching a kid riding a carousel who just shouts the same thing each time he spins around but then apparently can't hear the replies.

      I actually just took him off ignore in the past month, after more than a year.

      Starting to regret it...

      As an ex-catholic, I gave up guilt a long time ago  :laugh:
      People shouldn't need a bloke in a frock to tell them how to behave :)

      Anyway, back on topic.
      I hear the Gini's a bit of a c**t, running his contract down.
      Not like he's put a massive shift in for us, and might want a new challenge.

      Yeah, it's like he thinks he gets to decide where he works or something.

      I just don't know why he keeps being selected given that he brings so little to the team.

      Sorry, my bad, should have been clearer; I was talking about my experience with catholicism. Guilt is the control mechanism.

      I don't have a bad word to say about Gini.
      If he leaves, he leaves.
      He's done us proud and played his part in our success.

      I'd be happier if he stayed, but the fact is, players move on for a variety of reasons.
      Jones will be a year older and better, other young lads too.
      We got him for a good price. £25 million was money well spent.

      That's if he even goes, nothing is certain.

      Not a surprise to anyone but I think the rest of this window will be trying to sell some of the fringe players.

      I am however asking myself the following question: considering all the talk about a 2nd and eventually a 3rd wave and the plans to get back fans into the stadiums looking very shaky as a result, are we better off aggressively trying to sell those players right now while teams still have some money and some willingness to do business or are we still better off sticking to our price tags even if it means stalling some of those exists into a relatively uncertain future?

      I read, at the beginning of the summer, that we were willing to keep some of those players an extra year if it means selling at the price tag we set for them, but back then most people thought we could get fans in the stadiums around the october/november part of the season. It seems we're slowly seeing those plans getting scrapped.

      Still no closures on Wilson, Grujic, Karius, Brewster transfers.
      Or potentially Origi.

      Though Grujic did well the other night, albeit against Lincoln.

      Looks like they're going down to the why-ah..

      I’d be tempted to keep Grujic if he’s willing to be a cup player, especially if Fabinho is covering CB, will give more chance to give Fab a rest if he ever needs it.
