“I think it’s important, one thing, because we heard a lot of things – the team is very quiet about that,” said the skipper. “Danny made a mistake, he apologised and we move on. That’s it. But the team was never affected about that because we were so focused on our first Premier League game.

    Fulham are in talks with Cardiff to sign LB Joe Bennett.

    Could mean Rose > United, Sessegnon > Spurs??

    Purely speculation.

      Could do. Would be interesting.

    Who will “win the race” to sign Arsenal fan and bad boy Serge Aurier? Who cares?

    • East Stand August 15, 2017 at 8:51 am

      If he goes to Woolwich then I have no doubt he will end up another one of their overrated Euro trash signings they’ve been raking up in recent years.

      He’ll start well, fade and let his contract run down like all of them…

        I don’t even know if they’re linked but I’ve seen a photo of him in an Arsenal shirt.

          We agreed personal terms with this football legend many weeks ago. We appear very good at that bit. Then comes the bit where Levy drains the life blood out of the other chairman and the deals mysteriously collapse.

          • East Stand August 15, 2017 at 8:37 am

            We are sometimes good at that bit rather…

    Why we don’t get Diego Costa he is very mad at chvski they disrespected him after all he did for them he is good aggresive and will be ideal to play along Kane plus we can offer him champions league and we take our own revenge for Willian it is the best for all the parties i love that.

        • AntSpurs August 15, 2017 at 2:01 am

          Ade was not wanted

          • AntSpurs August 15, 2017 at 2:02 am

            He was under Tim

            • Gus August 15, 2017 at 2:07 am

              The fans liked him early when he was scoring. Levy loved him enough to give him that contract. Ade was scum, Costa is scum

              • AntSpurs August 15, 2017 at 2:09 am

                Sure but they can play. What price on that

        • AntSpurs August 15, 2017 at 2:05 am

          Would you have taken Berkamp ?

          • Gus August 15, 2017 at 2:08 am

            Yup. Just like I was ok with Gallas. It’s not that Costa was a chav. It’s that he’s a punk

            • AntSpurs August 15, 2017 at 2:11 am

              What’s really the price cause everyone else looks at us the same ways.

              • Cali August 15, 2017 at 2:35 am

    Anybody seen this proposal that the summer transfer window should close before the first match of the season?

    Good idea until you see part of the proposal is that English clubs can’t buy but can still sell.

    So where clubs think they have their squads in place, then the club sells their best players (or any as it goes) and the manager can’t reinforce.

    That’s levys wet dream.

    I think Daniel Levy considers that when the big boys have made their mega money moves in the transfer market, and spent their budgets, that prices will fall.

    It’s akin to wandering through the market just as the traders are packing up. Some of them are giving their produce away, but it’s all the fly blown stuff, over ripe fruit and veg.

    • marsinho August 14, 2017 at 11:44 pm

  • gus August 14, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    AntSpurs
    Ajax are a selling club. They can concentrate on finding the best talent, some fall by the wayside but the best get sold on for good money. Players will join them looking for PL La Liga , Bundesliga etc so they find a Dele and there’s the money for the next round

    It doesn’t need to be a selling club. Chelsea has a shit load of prospects signed on their books, all farmed out on loan to teams in various leagues who are paying their wages and providing them with coaching and experience. Most will never see the first team but many get sold on for profit I’d has it a guess

    We can do the same here and have Dele and Kane prime examples but most will fall short with more to consider coming away from families etc abroad. Paying 35M for Sanchez if he’s the right guy is fine. How much would we want for Dele ? If he’s worth it pay it !

    If Ajax can do it with regularity why not us?

    • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 11:03 pm

      They don’t pay the wages nor do they need as high a calibration of player

      • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 11:03 pm

        • gus August 14, 2017 at 11:06 pm

          I’m not sure we are talking about the same thing. You still need to buy fully formed players to help the first team. Scouting buying and developing prospects is something else entirely

        • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 11:09 pm

          Ajax are a selling club. They can concentrate on finding the best talent, some fall by the wayside but the best get sold on for good money. Players will join them looking for PL La Liga , Bundesliga etc so they find a Dele and there’s the money for the next round

  • gus August 14, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    This joker Sanchez cost Ajax less than 5M 12 months ago from Atlético Nacional in Colombia. They seem to be quite good at sourcing good young players and coaching them up, Verts was 16 when they signed him from Belgium, the list is pretty long. The question is, why the hell aren’t we signing our own guys like that? How much would it cost to have a scouting network in the Americas and Europe? A damn sight less than buying more name players I’m quite sure. I can only assume we don’t have such a network because we haven’t got a line of guys from Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Spain, Portugal, Croatia or anywhere else filling the rooms of our lovely new academy. Levy will happily spunk 30M on Sissy yet we don’t spend a couple of million a year the do this. Crazy

    • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:49 pm

      • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:52 pm

        To me it signals that Toby could be sold next summer.

        • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:54 pm

          We need a RB and a CB. He does both

          • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:56 pm

            This means rotation for RB CB and DM in one shot .

            • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 11:01 pm

              Levy spends 35m on rotation? It would be a first but you never know. Sissy was supposed be a starter but he’s crap…

      • gus August 14, 2017 at 10:57 pm

        Yeah. I was just discussing the academy thing. How much would it cost to set up a network of scouts and coaches in other countries

        I bet setting up arrangements with clubs over there wouldn’t be that expensive. Special relationships?

        • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 11:01 pm

          I would say it would cost some. Not so much monetary (which is is anyways) but time spent.

          • gus August 14, 2017 at 11:03 pm

            Just not 20 or 30M. You only need to find a gem every once in a while. Do the Chelski thing, get them signed on and get them farmed out to play and develop using other clubs to do the work 😉

        • gloster1861 August 14, 2017 at 11:01 pm

          It would need a concerted and sustained effort to set up and maintain a good scouting network. Since he enjoys hiring and firing his scouts it seems beyond us.

    • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:50 pm

      I have my doubts that this supposed Sanchez deal is even actually a thing Gus…

        • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:55 pm

          Aw, that’s very nice of you to say. Generally I do I know, however sadly not in this case.

          • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:58 pm

            No probs but if you say we need enforcements where else can you spend 35M and cover Walks Verts and maybe hold onto Dier or at least put him in an area he can cause more damage

  • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    Come on people, Sanchez at 35m. Why?

    • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:50 pm

      Ask David Ginola

      • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:53 pm

        Why Daveed?

        • AntSpurs August 14, 2017 at 10:53 pm

          Because he’s worth it

          • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:59 pm

            He might well be but he’s not what I would call a priority. Unless we play with three at the back and Dier never plays at the back again, a possibility I guess.

  • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:38 pm

    The Sanchez ‘deal’ could be media mischief yet again making out we are in for him when it’s probably Chavcheats who are serious about it and it makes us look like we’ve been gazumped by Chavcheats ‘a la Willian’…

    • Camus August 14, 2017 at 10:30 pm

      He thinks it’s beneficial to wait for the last 2 weeks. That’s when he always does most of his business. It’s fackin’ tedious but that’s his belief and it’s what he does.

  • Camus August 14, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    I go out for one evening and there’s no news? Seriously, this is tough going now. In other news, sounds like there is a proposal in for the transfer window to shut before the season starts. Thank God. 14 PL clubs would have to vote FOR it for it to come into play. .

    • Gus August 14, 2017 at 10:30 pm

      I hope that happens. Current rules are ridiculous

      • Camus August 14, 2017 at 10:31 pm

        Agreed. I’d expect most clubs will vote for it. Levy may not, haha.

  • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    If Toby doesn’t sign a new deal soon I will begin to see this Sanchez thing as paving the way for his exit.

    Levy does not spend 35+m on a central defender when we already have arguably the best defensive unit in the league.

    I’m not buying this ‘he can play right back’ bollocks, yes sure he can so he’s a 35m back up for Trippier too? I’m a bit concerned about us being in for him at that money as it goes…

    • Gus August 14, 2017 at 10:17 pm

      The man is capable of anything. Remember the magnificent 7 were almost all similar type midfielders weren’t they?

      • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:26 pm

        Not really, Eriksen, Chadders and Lamela were attacking signings but Paulinho and Capoue were defensive or deep players, Chriches was a central defender and Soldaldo a striker.

        Sure we were overloaded with attacking midfielders with Siggy and Blastalot already there but this feels different.

        • Camus August 14, 2017 at 10:29 pm

          On Toby, why is this an issue right now? We’re trying to sign some new players. A contract extension can be done anytime. He has 2 years left of his contract. It’ll get done after the window.

          • East Stand August 14, 2017 at 10:34 pm

            My point is why do we (with tight arsed owners) go and sign a 35m+ central defender when it’s not really a priority.

            A left sided attacker of quality as an upgrade on Son, a better backup for Kane, another box to box player are all worthy of more fees than a central defender.

            Unless Baldy has suddenly had an epiphany thanks to Rose’s drugged up rant and plans a 100+ mill spend up the Sanchez deal makes no sense at all…

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 14, 2017 at 10:19 pm

      If a major signing, perhaps the only one, means we are losing one of our most vital players, I’m going down there with an elephant gun.
