  1. We've had 10 in less than 3 years. I'm beyond blaming Rodgers at this point, we need a proper investigation into why this is happening. It seems to happen to such key players too. Ricardo, Justin and now literally our two best academy players. It's gutting. Even two you named there came from us!
  2. Yeah I've a little more sympathy but we've definitely gambled on red while black comes out. It would sum up this season for Barnes or Tete to go down for a month on Saturday. I am in general a bit more confident of us. Top has taken some actions which has eased my fears and we've recruited quite well for the most part for me. Now for an absolute disaster on Saturday to get me back to square one!
  3. Are you Aussies on here all fans of him? I really want him to be good. Just the concept of us having an effective giant bastard of a defender is something I really like. I wanted to think we had it with Vestergaard but we hit the quite considerable problem of him being utter shite.
  4. Sammy Braybrooke does his ACL too. I'm honestly just beyond fed up of it. I don't know how it's even possible to be this unlucky, which makes me think it just simply cannot be bad luck. Why does this keep happening to our players? What is going on?
  5. Yep got to give him some credit here. I've been calling for action and while he's not done 'everything' I want you can't accuse him now of just sitting there and letting us sink, which a month ago it really did look like. We're really banking on survival now with those loans from the Australian bank. Part of me wonders if they think they can convince him to stay. I don't think they're going to manage it but the seeming lack of interest in him has surprised me.
  6. I think should we survive we'll probably sign him in the summer. Will make more financial sense as well. Bit pissed off we've ended up by our own admission a player short yet again.
  7. It's not that I hugely rate Perez or Albrighton nowadays it's as much that we just don't have the bodies. Albrighton has played quite a bit this last month. It shouldn't be the case but if you replace him with literally nobody then what is the point? If somebody else comes in then fair enough but I see no sign that that's happening now. We aren't going to get Harrison at this point either. Just doesn't tally up to me.
  8. Our record of keeping players fit is appalling nowadays. We're an injury away from something like Daka on the wing. I just can't understand it. It is such an unnecessary risk to take. It's not like saving half of Albrighton or Perez' wages for 5 months is going to make much difference financially.
  9. They aren't deadwood while we're so low in the wide areas. We went into this window low on wide options yet despite the Tete signing could come out with even fewer. It's madness.
  10. We've loaned out Perez to Real Betis and about to loan Albrighton to West Brom. What is going on? Surely somebody else is coming in.
  11. I really want him to be good and that WC form to not be a flash in the pan. I've seen enough people saying he is actually good though for me to think this is a solid buy from us. Three additions in areas we needed, all of a decent age profile too. I'd still like more but having been largely inept every January for ages this is a lot more like it. Rodgers cannot have a single complaint about his lack of backing now - bet he somehow still manages to con people though. Time to deliver.
  12. I'm afraid it's done for you. Man City going to get him in the summer it seems.
  13. Funny I mention Perez - same bloke thinks Leeds are in for him. I wonder if there's some form of swap deal on the way. I know they're rare but...
  14. Ornstein says we have gone for him and an ITK of ours does think that this has legs, that Leeds are holding out for £30mil but we haven't hit it. I personally hope we don't. I don't think he's a rubbish player but I've said for years I wouldn't buy from the bottom half of this league, have been vindicated by the Vestergaard, Bertrand and Perez signings. Vestergaard & Perez particularly terrible value and deals that have held us back rather than progressed us. While I'm not sure he's as poor as Perez there are too many red flags for me. The same bloke also said we've enquired about Elanga on loan albeit so have plenty of others. I'd sooner do that and put the money into a CB or CM. The link with Torino's Perr Schuurs must be bollocks because he wouldn't be allowed to play for a third team this season.
  15. Think it's an excellent signing and I'm almost certain he's an improvement on what we have. Highly regarded by plenty of reputable people and only circumstance has allowed him to become available. Sounds to me like it's a loan until the end of the season. Seems a complicated one though. I'm convinced we're gonna end up heartbroken in the summer, but then it's an improvement in the mean time regardless. Now for a centre half - and maybe even more if you believe certain people.
  16. No Maddison isn't going this week. I'll drop a £50 donation to here if he joins Newcastle this week.
  17. Think I'll just back against Elche most weeks. They've got 6 points
  18. I'd imagine it'd be made permanent. It's a more complex one than average though so I was giving us a bit more leeway this time. Really hope we've not been stuffed over somehow wouldn't be shocked. We've never had a Brazilian player. That's mental for how long we've been up.
  19. He has a good record wherever he's played, scores a very good allround score on FBref as well which is a quite good analytics site. I see no way he doesn't improve us. It's taken way too long I agree but glad it looks like we've finally done it - for what appears to be a reasonable price on the face of it as well. I say that but don't know all of the intricacies of the deal. My only fear at this point is it is actually a loan with no view to permanent, but would we have agreed to that? Rodgers has no excuses at all now.
  20. This is sounding hopeful. Fair play to them if they get this one in as it seemed tricky. Get a centre half as well and I'm satisfied it's a window that'll be enough to keep us up - not that the squad isn't good enough to stay up anyway but there would be no excuse whatsoever. Would be delighted if we got this one done. He looks like what we need.
