know he's not your favourite but he gets teams up I can live with him. 4m for Bruce+2m for backroom staff embargo about to be lifted we posted a profit last year so we should be free to spend (reasonably) again. Steve bruce is a cunt na na na na


Obviously my first choice is always this beautiful man but it's probably unlikely

We signed Sam Byram, as if it wasn't obviously enough that our transfer strategy is based on football manager.

Tfw Maguire is seemingly gonna be sold for more than De Ligt

The state of the football transfer market these days is a sad sight

It was pretty obvious I suppose, I don't think the ridiculous dimensions of that sponsor would even be allowed. Just the thought of it was enough to nearly make me cake my underpants though

Just £60 for the home shirt this year......they have given us the option of buying one without a sponsor on which is nice I guess.


See the Newcastle fans have taken the appointment well

I haven't bought a Norwich shirt in over a decade but I'd probably consider it if they gave us one without a sponsor logo.

Depending on what the material feels like I'm probably going to pick up this years training top mind.

the answer is simple, Conte is a great estimator of Lukaku,he thinks he's the best striker for his way of playing football and we need to replace Icardi.

There was a pretty nasty elbow or two from Sevilla players before that too. They don't seem to know what friendly game means. Hopefully we won't face them in a friendly ever again.

We've signed 11 players and only 4 of them are for the first team squad. 2 of those 4 are loans, one is free and the other cost 750k.

Reckon we're going to do a wolves?

So Atletico apparently battered Real 7-3 last night. So much for them having a supposedly shaky transfer window

Oh and Gareth Bale looks like he might be finally heading out of Real Madrid... and going to China for even more of that sweet $$$$$$$

The move fell through lol. I guess injuries and the lack of a transfer fee were too much for Real.

Atletico have spent decently well. Pretty much reinvested all of the money they received. If Felix lives up to the hype, then they could have a big future.

Weird one for us. Signed a decent Championship winger, played him at fullback a few times and then decided he was too shit to play for us agiain. Suppose it was a case of people in his position playing well so he didn't get a chance to impress.

Didn't really expect us to pay him out of his contract though I must say. Thought it would be a loan and then sale next summer if he got his form back.

I love Dybala and I don't like that he might go to United soon. But I'm happy Juve has turned to Lukaku instead of to the idiot that is Icardi.

This makes Juve's £67m De Ligt deal look even better.

I haven't watched Football in a long time (1 year I think). I really need to get back. I might watch Bayern if they advance to the semi finals of the UCL this year.

What's Juventus even trying to do for that swap deal with United? United are pretty much gaining the best of the deal, not complaining though.~

Also Bayern really need a winger, need to pay huge money now though

Can't help but feel that's a really dumb move by Juventus if that happens. I don't see how trying to trade Dybala for Lukaku really changes anything when you're still going to build the squad around Ronaldo as your central attacker either way. For their own sakes I don't think they should go through with it

Now if they're solely selling Dybala and skipping Lukaku then it makes a bit more sense but I still feel that's a bit naïve. Ronaldo won't be around forever and they're already trying to sell Moise Kean as is. Someone has to be left to carry the torch (and bringing in Icardi can't possibly be the answer)

So the Swans managed to sell Oli McBurnie to Sheffield United after all for £20mil. I know he did good for the Swans last season (alongside Dan James, who we've also sold making me extra worried about my team) but... 20 mil for a guy who was in the Scotland squad that couldn't even beat Kazakhstan? Really?

I think the idea of building your whole club around a 34 year old is really dumb. Ronaldo does take really good care of his body, but a guy his age can only have so many years left in him... Juventus should really buy more young players and let them learn from Ronaldo instead. It feels like they have been looking for immediate success for a while, and they’ve just not been getting it. Lack of patience and planning for the future is going to be that club’s demise. Also I agree lol, Icardi is a ticking time bomb... Signing him would be very foolish. Now, from a manu fan’s perspective, I truly hope this deal goes through. I’ve never been a fan of Lukaku in the first place, replacing him with Dybala would be great.
