Guardado would be a dream signing.

Unfortunately i imagine thats all it will ever be :(
This.

Don't trust Orta at all after some of the dross he's signed. Saiz and Alioski been the only decent buys - the rest of the first team is mainly from last season's squad.

Not sure we'd get as much as you said if we send lasogga and CBJ back though - think we only pay about 10k a week to each - so it's only about 250k for each for the rest of the season. But no point them being here - especially CBJ.

Striker and centre back are crucial in my opinion. A goalkeeper, left back and centre mid desirable.

You could argue a lot of his signings haven't had a fair crack though.

Grot, Cibicki, CBJ, Klich, Ekuban, Pennington, Anita have 24 league starts between them.

You may be right, it was just vague guesses. Lassie is on 56k a week, id imagine we are covering 10-25k of that.
CBJ signed a new deal year or so ago, id imagine he is on 10-15k a week.

But the Klich and Sacko deals alone amount to a Saiz fee roughly, why bother.

Id love a centre back, Helander, Bartley, Dean ideally, but kind of accepted its not going to happen and Cooper and Jansson are first choice.
Left back and Striker for me.
Then a centre back, ball playing centre mid and another attacking option behind the main striker would be bonuses

Bit odd but there it is. Radz buying players for other people, or someone elses cash . .hmmm.

Anyway 2 signings done, Ideguchi on the horizon and not likely to see any of the trio make an impact this season.

Bit weird.

Edit, now we say that none of this is true.

Very interesting, why so cloak and dagger? I'm a little uneasy at the sheer amount of young talent headed this way seemingly to be lent straight out. Are we paying fees for these guys? Couldn't we forego 3/4 of them and add some first team talent

Must work out a list of whom we actually own

Belgian Left Back being touted... is it a done deal.

Laurens De Bock https://thisisfutbol.com/2018/01/transf ... -transfer/
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Yeah, i'm a bit concerned.

All for building for the future, increasing revenue or whatever.

But, first and foremost, build for the now.

Im thinking we are paying fees, but it isnt Radz, the Qatar link keeps popping up.

Please let this be true.

On Sky Sports also so hopefully so.

Know nothing about him apart from what ive Googled :-D

5 years as first choice for Club Brugge

200 plus league games in the Belgian top flight
1 Belgian title,.
Belgian International at many levels, never appeared for the Senior side, but thats not an easy side to get in to.
Europa League and Champions League experience.

Thats good enough for me to be positive and give a fair chance should he arrive :)

On the face of it, an outstanding signing. Just what we've all been asking for.

Now just a proven goal scorer.
