Should be fun. I can see Spurs selling Alder, Rose and Dembele and getting no one in. What a joke this transfer window has been and we are guaranteed to be out of the top four now.

I predict that United's will also end in disaster, with them either overpaying massively for Maguire, or panicking and bringing in a completely random player on loan.

Or they'll end up paying Everton for Fellaini again.

I've lost all confidence with the way we have conducted ourselves this transfer window. We should have got some big players in like Bale or Modric and the best we can manage is Jack Grealish, who won't even get into our first team!

Pretty sure Spurs were one of the clubs that voted for the shorter transfer window.

Poch said he didn't like it so I doubt it. I just hope ENIC sell up and we get someone who is willing to splash the cash. We won't be winning anything for a very long time otherwise.

Had nothing to do with Pochettino. It was the executives for each club that voted https://www.football365.com/news/which- ... rly-window

The five clubs who voted against the change were Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Manchester United, Swansea and Watford. Burnley abstained from voting.

Well doesn't make sense.

It looks like thats it for this year for us. I would only sell Alder if Marshall comes in, but that's not going to happen.

The problem is that we are acting like a small club despite being the champions league for 3 years in a row and with the World Cups golden boot winner. The only thing that will save the day is if Dele and Eriksen sign new long term deals.

No idea what happened this transfer window. We haven’t solved the glaring issues in the squad with left back and right winger. Darmian, Jones, Shaw, Rojo and Fellaini are still at the club.

But the players we have at the club should be doing better. Pogba and Sanchez need to have big seasons. Lukaku and Lindelof need to improve this season. Fred should offer us something different in midfield. Shame Dalot is injured as I would have liked to see him start the season especially as our so called captain came in overweight.

Do you not feel like some of these players are held back at least in part by Jose's approach and game plans?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the European clubs move for players after the England window closes, as then the clubs will be desperate to get rid of them...

Pogba and Martial definitely. I’d give Sanchez another few months as he didn’t really do much last season.

But there’s also not a lot you can do when Young and Valencia are your main source of width. Pep had old aging fullbacks in his first season and he binned all four. If you have a player like Lukaku then you need good width. At times we looked most dangerous when Lukaku decided to go on the right wing.

Jose probably likes Valencia and Young because they try hard. But I’m sure 10 years ago Jose would have dumped them. He seems to have gotten more negative with each season as a manager. He is capable of setting his teams to play good football. Chelsea in his first spell, Inter and Real Madrid in his second season were all good teams to watch. But the Madrid job seems to have ruined him. Even in his second spell at Chelsea they had a good six months in the year they won the league and then for some reason he resorted to being negative again.

Then you have Smalling and Jones. One of them can’t pass and the other can’t tackle.

The squads not perfect but it’s definitely a team that should be in the top four minimum.

I don’t know if Jose was asking for too many old players or the board wanted him to get more out of the current players. Still feel we should have signed a right winger because we don’t have one in the squad.

Sky Sports News saying we after Godin now....

So in space of week it was Maguire, Mina, Boateng, Alderweireld, Zouma and now Godin. These journos have no idea. I wonder how long before John Terry gets linked.

I would take Godin over all the others to be honest, but as it's Sky reporting it there'll be about 10% chance it'll happen.

And I'm hoping Spurs strawberry float off re: Grealish. Think Bruce is still looking to get a couple of loan deals done before the end of the month, them along with keeping Grealish would be decent work during the window.

Edit: Wait. Neither of you want Grealish to move. Ffs. This post is redundant.

Quelle surprise :roll:

Basically if you play in Spain and you want a new contract, just get Man United to be linked with you. Works every time.

This window is almost as bad for your guys as Spurs. I'm just shocked we haven't got rid of Toby and Rose and got replacements in tbh. I would rather keep them on our bench if we do not have ready made replacements. We could say Lucas would be like a new signing and he has impressed in pre season, but this really is not good enough. All we can hope for is Winks to step up and one or two youngsters to progress into the first team.
