Origi went out on loan and had a decent season for us when he came back. Although to be fair, we likely only kept him that year because no one wanted to buy him.

Which is my point. We loaned origi to sell him (in fact we'd have probably sold him had there been an appropriate offer) and kept him after the loan because we still couldn't sell him. And despite him scoring some really crucial goals, that's been completely at odds with his overall level which has been continually poor.

Elliot has never really impressed when he's had a chance, let's be honest. I know he's young but nothing he's done has ever stood out 

Fucking hell, you're hard to please. He's 17, he's shown loads for that age imo.

So because he hasn't won the World Cup like Pele did in 1958 when he was 17 then we've signed a dud , just wow really .

Origi went out on loan and then straight onto the transfer list. Best offer we got was €14 mil or something,  which is why we kept him.

 

He then turns up in injury time against the blue shite as a last throw of the dice, halfway through the season for his first appearance and the rest is history.

 

"A decent season" is pushing it massively. He scored 5 big goals in 4 games, and did fuck all else during that period, and since.

Is there any chance that the FA will still hand motherfucking Pickford a red card following our appeal?

They shouldn't need our letter to do that.  But as they're inept scum they'll do fuck all.

We haven’t appealed anything, have we? We’ve just asked for clarification of why they didn’t look at the Pickford tackle.

I'm not sure if they still take action since VAR came in to play?

 

He can do more damage in goal for them than he does in the stands.

Sheff Utd signing Ramsdale from Bormurnemount. He's shite, 4/1 on them being relegated looks tasty, form fell off a cliff and now significantly weakened in the most important part of the pitch.

I called this in August. Didn't back it obviously because I'm a cunt.

They've been watching Ben White for ages. 

 

Surely his price tag makes this a non-starter? Can't see us shelling out 40m on anybody this window and that fee might be less than what Brighton are looking for. I've heard him quoted for 50m before.

I’d like Schuurs, looks a quality player that lad.

I think he is a great talent. Would love him and that 18 year old midfielder. Two signings for the future but could be a big help to us this season.

 

Vestergaard of Southampton is another one I like.

There's a young Dutch defender at Lille that is a better fit for the Premier League than Schurrs, I think. Sven Botman. 6 foot 4 tank, pretty talented, and left footed, which is a commodity. It'd make sense if we were paying attention to him for the summer. He looks like a future top defender and he's already pretty good.

 

Schurrs was pretty good against us. I don't think he's meant to be a top, top talent, though.

Never seen him play but I want him. He sounds amazing.
