Nothing happening but transfers football thread

I wish Palace would hurry up and appoint a manager, there’s yet another favourite in the betting in Frank de Boer. It seems Pellegrino is now favourite for the Southampton job.

Would de Boer be a good appointment?

Spending the Romelu money before it arrives, shirley?


#123

More likely the Barkley money?


#124

both?


#125

Aye, you’d have thought so, their new owner is spendier than the last one though innit.


#126

Might be a statement of intent to try to get one of the two to stay, but the gap between them and the top 5 is far too big to bridge in one summer without crashing £hundredsofmillions

You are SO cheeky! It’s devilish!


#128

14 is a bigger number than 8


#129

I heard that too actually.

No roof on the KC stadium, luckily.
That Les-tah shirt’s as lazy in design as the pronunciation it’s promoting

Oi lads. Ruffers has confused Hull’s KC Stadium for Leicester’s King Power Stadium. What a faux pas!

I feel like Phil Neville here playing right back at the swamp


#135

Very much so. Ajax’ best player for the last two seasons. Aged 24 seems to be perfect time to make a switch to the Premier League. Not so sure Everton is the best suited club for him, but I can easily see him make a jump to one of the big 6 after a season or 2.

Talking of ex-colleagues… One of my previous direct reports will absolutely be all over this merch…


#137

Good name too


#138

Not so sure. De Boer did extremely well as manager at Ajax, winning the title 4 years in a row, but then flopped at Inter. It’s doubtful he can easily adapt to unfamiliar surroundings.

pretty amazing he got a response! I would have been chuffed with a rejection letter
