      Imagine if if falls through because French Bulldogs aren’t allowed in Saudi.

      Be in the doghouse that's for sure

      But we can't compete with £700,000 a week Billy




      No we can’t Gerns mate, who can, but maybe it’s just me being a tad sentimental, but I’d have liked Hendo to have a swan song season and lead us to another title, must be getting soft in my old age, don’t think he needs the dollar either but then, when you’re offered that kind of Swag you can’t turn it down I guess !!

      Of all the things not allowed in Saudi, that French bulldogs might be the only reason why one of those transfer do not go ahead will be funny to say the least

      I don’t think that’s a real thing.

      Pit bulls are a different story.

      Apparently you just check the box and say it's a guard dog. I think this is journalists being dummies (as usual).

      Sounds like the Saudi owner is telling people it's all sorted now. should be announced soon.

      Quote from harrydunn08
      Is it possible that he (and others) believe the best way to accelerate change / progress in the middle east is to go straight into the belly of the beast and be an advocate for change?  These players and managers will have an excellent stage to make their beliefs known, and maybe that accessibility will help the next generation adopt more progressive beliefs?

      No they won't. They're not interested in your way of life. They don't see it as progressive, quite the opposite. They have their culture and you're wasting your time trying to convert them. If you don't like it, stay at home.

      Would I live there given the opportunity? No. For one inescapable fact. Riyadh is the hottest capital in the world, and the climate in that region at this time of year is frankly, intolerable. No amount of cash could change my mind.

      I have several friends and colleagues from the middle east who would disagree with your assessment.  They all agree that most people from their respective homelands want a more progressive cultural and political landscape, but most are afraid to speak out for fear of being ostracized.  That isn't my opinion -- it's straight from people I know who have immigrated to the US from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.

      There is a younger generation in the ME who want change but let's not sugar coat the truth when it comes to players moving there...it has precisely nothing to do with advocating for change. We can talk about it as an accidental fact of their greed that they happen to be closer to countries they can advocate for change in but it is no more than that. If you saw Gazza at your local boozer claiming to be there because it is the perfect place to advocate for teetotalism, who would believe him?

      And there's millions more who have stayed in their countries and don't want it like ours. They would like change but not to the level of us. They think we've gone mental in the west

      Be nice, but absolutely no way this happens and I think you know that. Lavia may or may not come in but only if fabinho leaves.

      The club have been looking to bring in Lavia before any talk of Fabinho leaving started

      So this "big rebuild" was two midfielders in?

      2 in 5 out so far if fabinho goes. Unless anything happens that's the picture isn't it.

      Whatever happens we're going in under equipped again. We're basically a skoda at the back. Nothing defensively has been improved.

      No quality no6 brought in.

      No backup for Salah.

      Asking for trouble. They naysayers will deny it. They denied it till the cows came home last summer.

      As it stands, without something significant happening a distant 4th is the absolute max we are getting next season.

      Doak is clearly the back up for Mo and also Elliot , Diaz , Jota etc can fit in there

      The front line is an area that doesn’t need any signings
