I notice from the Madrid page that the club are open to selling Kante I presume in the summer?
Who do you think will replace him?
Thanks.

Turvey

What are we thinking, jeez, a backwards Step imo,


2.) 20 Jan 2020 07:15:08
Let's hope Soumare and Ndidi are on the list if so. And if I'm greedy Fabian Ruiz as well.

Franks press conference played down the liklehood of any signings.
In addition he said Christensen was not leaving but Giroud may if it suits all parties but no decision currently
Pulisic has an injury which is more weeks than days.

Turvey

1.) 10 Jan 2020 15:05:05
I wouldn't pay much attention to press conferences. Conte said we aren't signing a left back and Emerson joined 12 hours later.


2.) 10 Jan 2020 15:25:20
Good summary Turvey.

Also the latest news on RLC doesn’t sound encouraging.

I’ve still got a feeling we will sign a left footed defender and that could be Ake and maybe one other player before this window closes.

I am also pleased Lamps doesn’t want Christiensen sold. I’m convinced there is a proper “modern” defender there trying to get out.


3.) 10 Jan 2020 15:52:13
I can't see Ake arriving unless one CB is leaving which doesn't seem to be the case.


4.) 10 Jan 2020 17:31:42
To a certain extent I think you are correct about Ake Turvey.

I tagged onto the Ake idea after I was told (not sure how accurate the info was) we wanted to sign a couple of natural left footed players and another poster suggested one might be Ake.

I suppose Ake could play left back as well as a central defender.

Sky reporting we have made an offer for Gedson Fernanades of Benfica.
Any truth in this?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Really?}

Matt Law saying we are not interested in Gabigol but Conte is interested in Giroud.
Dont shoot the messenger!

Turvey

1.) 06 Jan 2020 19:51:09
Matt law comes on here and used Ed002 as a source.


2.) 06 Jan 2020 20:09:53
100 agree. Ed2 is the source.

Any truth the we are interested in signing Mattias Godoy in January if the transfer ban is rescinded?
Many thanks.

EDS 001/ 002
Canal Plus have announced they will not be paying the next installment of fees for covering Lique 1.
If this was replicated in other countries would this change the dynamics of the next transfer window in a significant way?
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - FFF and clubs will only get pro rata broadcasting money - but they have nothing close to that of England. I would expect pro rata payments to be agreed in many countries.}

If as seems likely no games will be played before June at the earliest presumably it will be necessary for the players to have a another pre season?
That in itself would add another 3/ 4 weeks to the timeline presumably?
Thanks and hope you and your family are keeping clear of Covid19.
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - that is looking optimistic even. They still don't know if you can catch it twice. That needs to be known before any semblance of normality can return. If you can't then those that have had it are safe. So fingers crossed that getting over it once brings immunity.

All good here thanks mate. How are things with you and yours?}


1.) 30 Mar 2020 13:01:12
I'm pretty sure there have been cases in China of people getting re-infected, so it does seem like, at the very least, some people don't get immunity.

Also Ed I was thinking, since the players are not able to properly train these days, and won't be for a few more weeks, don't you think the players would be of higher risk of getting muscle injuries when suddenly thrust back into play?

{Ed001's Note - I would expect them to have a 'pre'-season of sorts when the game does restart.}


2.) 30 Mar 2020 13:38:06
I personally believe the decision has pretty much been made.

The football governing bodies need to make it known that they've explored every single option for extending the season. They can't put themselves in a position where clubs, badly effected by such a decision, can pick them apart in public.

The big footballing questions now are what does cancelling the season look like? Who plays European football next season? Will there even be European football next season? Do Leeds and WBA get promoted with no relegation? etc.

I don't envy those making these decisions.

{Ed002's Note - No decision has been made at this time.}


3.) 30 Mar 2020 14:25:58
The governing bodies will have to be seen to try everything they can to restart the season but unless some sort of marvellous miracle happens I just can’t see it happening.

If it doesn’t, it will be very unfair on lots of teams but some will be happy.

{Ed002's Note - This is all being addressed. The "elite" European sides have met today, the Italians have had one meeting today and have another later today, the Premier League next meet Friday, etc., etc..}

Thanks for asking mate I am lucky to live in the country near the sea so able to keep away from contact quite easily.
So far so good!

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed you and all your loved ones stay safe and well. Living in the country must be nice right now.}

Many thanks for the Ziyech analysis which summarises the positive and negative aspects of the player very succinctly.
I can see him struggling with intensity of the PL next season probably after a decent start.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - yeah, most players do. I think he will do ok in time though.}


1.) 28 Feb 2020 14:33:44
He's got good technical ability which can be a cushion for the high intensity of the EPL.

Could you see Boga being bought back and immediately sold on at a profit?
Various reports that this is the plan.
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that I understand.}


1.) 28 Feb 2020 00:01:37
The reports are suggesting that the club will take up the option to buy him back at a fee that is under his current market value.
They also suggest that this would be done so that the club could consider selling him for a profit at some point.
Whether Boga would agree to this I doubt .

The question relates to a comment you made about the amount of funds that would be available to re invest from any player sales.
Taking an arbitary figure of £100m that would presumably paid in 4/ 5 tranches of £20/ 25m?
Based on that figure how much would a club be able to invest short term from that sale?
I ask as you see a lot of fans assuming that the £80m? we got for Eden is available for player purchases in the summer.
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about - and whatever I said would have been in relation to what I was asked. None of it is related to Eden Hazard not=r any random figures you have running around in side of your head.}


1.) 06 Feb 2020 01:15:10
Taking £100m, you’d still need to pay taxes, agent fees, FA fees, any bonuses still owed to the player. There are a lot of extra fees that don’t get mentioned so there’s no fixed amount or percentage you can attribute to what would be available following the sale of a player.


2.) 06 Feb 2020 13:25:35
Thanks for explaining that Fuser .
I partly asked as I am puzzled by the figures being banded around about transfer funds available next summer particularly after the loss just posted.
Where the money would come from to sign Sancho and Dembele God knows unless we sell Kante.

The current financial climate is a strange excuse given the cost of borrowing is so low.
Likewise I don't think RA situation is the deal breaker either.
The core reason is the complexity and cost of the development which is prohibitive and unlike any other stadium in the world.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue. Just move on.}

Thats interesting and sensible position Tom but I am not sure if that is reflected by the majority of shareholders.
The cost of developing the stadium must be significantly north of £1 billion by now and it won't get any cheaper that's for sure.
Finding a site anywhere locally is tough unless we are prepared to move to Old Oak Common for example.

Yes club have said nothing planned in the forseeable future.
Cant see how it will ever add up given the complexity of the site.
The only way forward would be a new site outside the immediate area which is unlikely to be approved by the Pitch Owners.

I wonder if the people who don't rate Rice felt the same about Jordan Henderson a few years ago?

We have the likes of Gallagher to consider integrating rather than bringing back a player arguably past his best now.
I like Oscar but we need to move forward.

It sounds from your comments that many of your choices are more suited to LWB Ed 001.
I am a fan of Alonso providing the team is set up to take a account of his defensive weakness.
Who from your list is significantly better defensively whilst still contributing in the final third including goals?

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - Alaba and Robertson stand out as the best all round full-backs.}

The final judgement should be made at the end of the season but the focus currently should be on our performance levels not our position.
Any other manager would be at severe risk of getting thr sack given goals conceded and our home form which isn't just bad its embarrassing.
If he can't see Giroud is better than Bats and -Zouma is better than Christensen plus the formation that makes the best of our squad is 343 or a verion of that then I doubt another six months will improve his management.
The people I hold responsible are the people who appointed him not the manager who will get a fat pay cheque whatever happens.
