    I’m nearly 40! As a term it’s been in use since I was a kid. Probably a level down from plain old shite as a translation.

    I don’t mind the white stripe. The collar though is wick.

    This is a few days old, admittedly, and it's the Metro, quoting Sport, so probably has zero credibility, but sure, why not! https://metro.co.uk/2020/09/18/liverpool-make-contact-with-barcelona-over-loan-move-for-ousmane-dembele-after-wrapping-up-thiago-deal-13290512/?fbclid=IwAR1-pvClE6SILzx1qz5JtN7_iyCfF-Jgt9S4jJtBsgjNaWazEXrj8SuXInI

    When does the Barca / Coutinho £100m surcharge window expire?

    So, the official colour is rusted copper?!
  7. I was going to say Cheyrou. He was supposed to be class. He was not.

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    I saw him in the League Cup against Chelsea autumn / winter 2018 in midfield. Busy, good on the ball, decent without much room. In a way he wasn't unlike Gini, though obviously it was a while ago & he's been injured since (or for a big spell). He's young, he'd be on the bench for a while before anywhere near our starting XI. All that said, I've no idea where he's been playing for Bournemouth this past few months? Yeah, Lewis is probably disappointed, but given his temperament, I suspect he'll put that to the side when pre-season starts & he has to start competing for his place again. He's got a decent mindset for a relative youth, so I don't think he'll be rocking the boat at Norwich too much. I suspect he'll keep his head down, work hard & get a move to a better club in due time. Leicester might well be a good shout (from whoever made it).

    I quite like him as a player, but £35m seems a bit on the crazy side, no? Even in this market.

    I've probably watched Jamal Lewis play all his games for Northern Ireland. He is rapid (was a decent level athlete at school apparently) and can play football on the deck, and he has a great temperament for a kid. Perfect defensively, no, but he has time to learn. When we played Germany in Belfast in 2019 he had a pretty good game considering the opposition (facing up to Werner & Brandt). As a back up to Robbo I think he'd be good. He wouldn't be rushed in, he'd get his three months to work on the system in training, etc. and I reckon he'd be pretty ready come the winter schedule. £10m seems reasonable, £20m seems unreasonable, if Laurouchi is going the other way, maybe there's a price in the middle both teams might think works.

    That's how I see it. You double up on the full backs, you leave yourself light in other areas where we have loads of talent. We've got a tremendous balance in that regard. The challenge is having capable players to stand in for the first 14 players or so, who can repeat the trick.

    That's the third time we've been linked with Lewis, but we're not paying that kind of fee for him. I doubt we'd consider half of that.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I get that - I'm no lawyer, so to my layman eyes, it looks odd that the IFA could be found culpable, but I get that someone said it would be better to settle - it's just the numbers, rather than taking the risk of losing. £2m for a 15 year old on "loss of potential"? That number just seems astronomical.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/sunday-life/sport/irish-fa-forced-to-pay-2million-compensation-claim-to-former-schools-international-39321746.html Appreciate this is a bit left field, but a 15 year old Man City player tried to sue the NI Schoolboys, the IFA and a player after a leg break in a Victory Shield game. He wanted a total of £36m for missing out on potential! It would have bankrupted the IFA & NI Schoolboys setup, not to mention the kid! In the end the IFA took on the responsibility & settled, out of court, for £2m! Now, this has raised a lot of question in Northern Ireland... not least why there was a case to answer against the IFA at all. But the angle of loss of potential for a 15 year old seems a bit on the high side. What does the average 15 year old earn at City?! Would he have earned £2m over the course of his contract? Was he guaranteed to get another contract?! Where city paying for his schooling? Something else? Clearly a bit of talent to be playing for the England U-16s but his chances of going from there to professional football at all, never mind the top, are slim enough. All rather odd.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I'll admit to not paying attention, but has that super huge planning permission application not landed on the City Hall Servers yet?! Been uploading for quite some time now!
