Hi ed002, do you know if a fee for Maguire has been agreed?

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of the final details being sorted out quite yet.}

Ed, does this mean we’ve ended our pursuit for Dias and Nikola?

Many thanks.

{Ed004's Note - We will only be signing one centre back so Id assume so}

At the moment we have 7 CB's.
Atleast 2 needs to be moved out.
Tuanzebe should be loaned back to Villa. It will be good for him to get a full EPL season under his belt.
Jones/ Rojo needs to sold.

So, Lindelof, Maguire, Smalling, Bailly would be 4 good CB options.

{Ed004's Note - That is exactly what I would hope for. Think we will struggle to sell both Jones and Rojo though}

The final details ed? Sounds as though it will be done.

{Ed002's Note - It should go ahead.}

Not happy with this signing at all. Absolutely not worth anywhere near the quoted figures. Especially considering the age of milenkovic and dias at lower figures. Ridiculous.

Then sell smalling the summer after if tuanzebe has progressed sufficiently.

Paying more than VVD for Maguire? What a joke this club is becoming.

Fabulous signing imo.

Cheers ed. Honestly, would have preferred the options of either dias or milenkovic. But he is an upgrade.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe they did not want to drop down a level or two.}

People moaning about the money, why? How does it have any effect on how we support the team which is what we should be doing, not worrying about money. Maguire wouldn't of been my choice a few weeks ago but he has many positives, great in the air, a constant threat attacking corners, he's used to the prem so should settle quickly and the main one for me is he plays on the left letting lindelof play in his favoured position.

Lewis Dunk to Leicester rumours.

Why are we fixated on the cost again. Is he good enough should be the main question and that is my main doubt.

13.) 14 Jul 2019

Exactly wiggy.

No he isn't my first choice but he's who the clubs bringing in.

Who cares on the money? Its the clubs money and i'd rather it went on players than into the owners bank accounts.

Just forget the figure and support the lad who will be first choice in our team.

Quite possible ed002. Maybe happy where they are hoping a club playing champs league or on the up would sign them. The club at this very moment isn't exactly very appealing or attractive.

Although, i think to a lot of players, manchester united is still a very attractive proposition.

I think he's the safest/ best option available right now. His cost should be irrelevant to the fans, unless they prefer it goes on dividends?

He's ready to walk straight into the side. No relocation issues, no language issues. He knows many of the players personally. And he will not be linked to moves away every summer. He's entering his prime at 26.

If he signs, then he will be a decent signing. VvD never looked great at Southampton, but in a better side, he's a better player. We will see, but it's a signing that had to happen in my opinion.

Enjoying the cricket and just remembered my password. I have been reading the site when I've had time.

I am good thank you. Hope all is well.

{Ed002's Note - Good for you.}

One thing I wanted to say last week, which I couldn't as I forgot my password, was many on here are discussing getting rid of a lot of players and where I agree with most, we must remember that we are in the Europa and we will not want to use our best players in the early stages in that competition. Also that the youth we have coming through should get some appearances this season. Players like Gomes, Garner, Greenwood etc could get some great experience in the Europa League.

Welcome back Sydney! What have you done with Dee? We could use some of his blind optimism around here!

To be fair Syd, I'm a Celtic fan and VVD was class for us and clearly destined to be a monster.
Similarly I'd love Man Utd to go for Tierney for 25 mill. Great player, very good competition for Shaw (better IMO) if Arsenal get him it will be great business for them. Ship a couple north on loan as part of the deal as well ideally (for me personally) .
