Yeah but John Henry was banned straight after.

I was moaning at the fact these transfer commissions always make us pay record or near record fees in these arbritation hearings.

When you get the best players in that system what would you expect?

 

Were you moaning about the Ings fee?

We make out like bandits when we sell these players, we’re not the ones being ripped off.

Probably already discussed but I was well pissed off we didn’t get upamecano for that price before Tuesday night. 
If kabak gave the ball away that many times people on here would be laying eggs.

Elliot has been amazing for Blackburn. If he carries on at this rate we’ll get about £19m for him from Leeds in 2022.

He's certainly got the right haircut for Leeds!

I read the Elliott fee was £1.8m upfront and £2.7m in potential payouts dependent on milestones.

With Edwards’ track record, those milestones are probably scoring the first goal on Mars and being chosen as the next actor to play James Bond.

I saw a recent picture of him in a Blackburn kit with fairly normal barnet , so hopefully the penny has dropped.

If we only bought one player this summer I’d get that Haaland on lock right now. Everything in his locker this kid and would suit us perfectly for years. Easy to build a team round as he can do the lot. 
 

Someone posted on here last week that he’s followed him for years and he’s shite. Must have been his dad he was talking about

Is Ian Ayre running Dortmund now? Why would they do this?

Won't happen but Haaland yes, not arsed about Sancho. Can't see the hype at all.

I still think with the players we have coming back we only need minor squad changes. An attacking option for ox, Shaq and origi and the squad has a whole new perspective.

 

I reckon if you go through the best 11 in the prem it's still mostly our players.

 

Alisson 

Trent

Dias 

Van Dijk 

Robbo 

 

Fabinho

 

De Bruyne

Cm debatable

 

Salah 

Kane 

Mane 

 

So we're still not too bad a team, really

My concern with signing players from the Bundesliga is the amount of players that have looked outstanding in that league and then struggled in England in recent years. Off the top of my head there's Werner, Havertz, Haller, Keita, Karius and even Thiago doesn't look as effective.

 

Sane is an exception to that list, but it seems like players from the Bundesliga do seem to struggle over here more often than not.
