      Virgil's post match comments make sense now!

      Yeah looks like it’s on! Joyce only reports genuine links.

      Would rather get in a central midfielder first though!

      Wasn’t that impressed with him at the WC and not sure what he adds or gives that we don’t already have - guess this means that Bobby won’t be signing a new contract

      If anyone watched Ox today, this signing makes a lot of sense with Diaz out and Jota and Bobby unable to stay healthy.

      What did Virg say?

      Have to admit I was trying to watch him a bit at the WC having heard about him but not seen him play, and I wasn't hugely impressed. Hope I'm wrong! Given the Diaz and Jota injuries it does make sense. Possibly makes a new deal for Bobby less likely?

      We won’t get top 4 if we only have salah, Nunez and a half fit Bobby until March, so this is needed

      But we also need a cm

      Deal is done, confirmed by PSV

      Don't know what to say about this signing.

      Welcome to the club Cody!

      He is certainly another physical specimen in the Nunez mould, so we are going from having midgets up top to big beasts 😁

      Didn't see that one coming. Would rather a CM but who could say no to strengthening in attack if the opportunity presents and with Jota and Diaz out. I suppose we must be confident he is the right fit given needs elsewhere in the squad.

      Sort of suggests that the club fears Diaz might be out for longer than what they have let on.

      Do we need him? I assumed he played primarily through the middle

      I think Diaz may have an injury worse than they’re letting on?

      Can’t imagine Firmino will get a new contract.

      Jota and Darwin fighting to be in the middle, Diaz and Gakpo fighting for the left.

      Salah and Doak right.

      Damn, I didn't see this one coming at all.  Wouldn't have expected us to pursue an attacker, but he seems like the "right profile" for an FSG signing -- young, talented, big upside, long term value, and relatively cheap compared to others of similar age and ability.  I'm excited to see how he fits in.

      Exactly, he would only be here if Jürgen wanted him and if Jürgen wants him, I'm on board.

      Have no F***ing clue who this lad is, mind you!  :D
