Nothing happening but transfers football thread

Yep you’re right about 25k threshold. Southend’s new ground (if it ever begins) is going to be 22k.


#1702

I see Wazza scored a worldy against … Gor Mahia FC

Will score more than Lukaku AND Moses combined this season…put the mortgage on it


#1703

If I see a bet going for it I’m going to stick a tenner on rooney scoring more than lukaku for some top level anti-bants


#1704

It’s good, but these two things:

  • Shit opposition. Obviously ping it against that goalie.
  • Shame he did it in that shit shirt.

edit: re-read this. I don’t mean Everton, I just mean this crappy washed out third kit or whatever it is.


#1705

Goalie’s miles of his line. That said, the one thing he hasn’t really lost is his ability to hit a blooter. It’s the pace and the touch which let him down


#1706

serious question cos it’s a pretty vague phrase that’s thrown around a lot (not necessarily on here but other corners of the internet)

feels like there’s at least 5 times as many world class attacking players as there is defensive players to me

or is that cos the attacking players get talked about more?


#1707

He’ll probably score with his first attempted chip for Everton after missing at least 500 at united


#1708

yeah sure

I’ve got a feeling he’ll be more confident and composed back at Everton though

fitness will obviously be an issue though


#1709

i can imagine that if he went to the MLS or whatever he’d score 25 blooters a season


#1710

I think it’s just that attacking players tend to be the ones who need technical ability to break down defences, and so you notice their ability more.


#1711

It’s because goals are the money shot for football on TV.

If someone does something great and there’s a goal at the end of it, it’ll be replayed all night. A defender whose positioning keeps a clean sheet without an attacker getting anywhere near the goal tends to be unsung.

Loftus-Cheek definitely should have had more chances, but I’m not entirely opposed to him going out on loan for a year.

@Kallgeese, do you think he’s looked…alright since that horrific injury? For me, understandably, he hasn’t, and again, I reckon a loan could be good for his confidence. Christensen looks a bit tasty too.


#1714

good article from James Horncastle breaking down the Bonucci transfer. I suppose there’s kind of a precedent with the lineage of bonkers intra-Serie A transfers, but I thought those days were gone (Juve’s cannibalisation of the rest of the league’s talent feels like a different thing really. Just what Bayern do). If they got Belotti too… oof.

[would’ve thought City and others would be desperate to hijack a deal - and surely offer him far more in wages - at the first sign of his availability. Only explanation can be him being adamant on staying in Italy]

*unless it’s an England player in a major international tournament


#1716

Serge Gnabry’s gone straight out on loan to Hoffenheim. In these times of crazy inflated transfers, let’s not forget that Arsenal managed to get £5m for him


#1717

Got an awful lot of time for Jack Wilshere to Sampdoria as a potential move.


#1718

Here’s hoping there’s enough Bolivian marching powder in Genoa to allow the brave fella to settle in.


#1719

This is their owner, reckon he might be good for a hook up tbf:
