Brentford have bought another midfielder from Southend, and got a new winger in. Have they found alternatives to Ejaria? Could we still be the only ticket in town?

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

The decision to pass on Dybala due to excessive wages and lack of enthusiasm is, for me, a sign Man Utd have learned from recent mistakes and are moving in the right direction. A quality player undoubtedly, but could easily have been a repeat of Di Maria and Sanchez. You can baulk at the fees they h...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

This sounds like an excellent signing. Club must also be applauded for fast, decisive action here. The fans have judged Virginia very quickly on the basis of one competitive performance. But it seems Jose has seen enough in the Spain tour and training that we need an upgrade for this season, and tho...

Re: RUMOUR - Connor Wickham

I once signed him on football manager. He demanded to be one of my highest earners, scored no goals, was generally shit and then led the squad on strike when I dropped him. It's a no from me.

Re: Rival Watch

Hull have apparently pocketed £9.5m from the Maguire deal. Useful sell on clauses.

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Aren't we expected to be in the same area of the table as Wednesday? If he was going to make a big impact, would they loan him to a rival?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Really could do with a striker though suspect that we’ll see Barrow, Boyé and Meite getting time in that position. And do still need an AMC. GK is the biggest worry at the moment and both that and DL might be areas that need to be strengthened in January depending on injuries/form etc. At this stag...

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

I have a question for a rules boffin. Boye makes 3 loan signings. Rumour is we're going for another striker, while the Ejaria deal is not dead. I'd also like another DM. As we have no money, I assume these would be loans, potentially up to 6 loans. You are only allowed 5 in your matchday squad. Do ...

Re: The 4 needed to complete the team

Reckon Ejaria may well join on deadline day when Liverpool can't sell him. Obvs if Brentford are flush with cash from selling any of the 3 or 4 15 million rated players they seem to have (trying to work out how they didn't walk the league last year with so much talent) then that might change They'r...

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

I assume tomorrow is too soon for him.

My biggest concern is things like cultural adaptation to Championship and language barrier with rest of the squad. Manage that well and it looks like a very exciting signing.

Re: Lucas Boye

I'd certainly be happy with the signing based on what I can see about him. If it happens be very interested to see how the deal is structured being as he is out of contract end of the season, and apparently worth a few quid. I'd be surprised however if we were able to afford any sort of transfer fe...

Re: Rumour - David Cornell

It's an area where we can definitely do better. The question is whether this guy is actually better than what we have. Some keepers develop late, but a career in League 2 at 28 does not inspire confidence.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Our new super-journo Courtney reckons we are close to signing winger Lucas Boye from Torino Looks half decent on paper If this is on loan, could we get near our 5 loanee squad limit? He would be our third, with Botanini rumoured to be the fourth. If Ejaria then becomes possible, that's our matchday...
