Hello Eds,
Thanks for the list, it made a good read! Do you know of any news surrounding Max Meyer? I recall you stating back in April that something could be done but it seems to have gone quiet. I am reading that he wants a minimum of £77,000 a week to join any club which I don't think is bad regardless of being down the pecking order. A free transfer too, wouldn't be a bad bit if business!
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Right now his demands are beyond what Hoffenheim, Milan and Arsenal are able or prepared to pay. The interest of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Liverpool has moved on for now, leaving Marseille who are thinking about Meyer and another high-price midfield option.}


1.) 02 Jul 2018 13:39:54
That's fair enough. If Arsenal honestly thought he was that good and would be a good addition to the squad then they would pay it. Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe you need to understand a little more about FFP.}


2.) 02 Jul 2018 14:14:36
How do you know I don't? One thing I and nobody else knows is how Arsenal are affected by it because we don't know the margins or the budget that is available to the club. With that being said, if they can't afford Meyer then I highly doubt they will be successful with some of the names mentioned below.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly you don't understand the FFP rules at all.}


3.) 02 Jul 2018 14:41:38
Alright Ed. FFP was established to prevent professional football clubs spending more than they earn to gain success. However, it's actually down to the individual clubs, directors and senior executives to make decisions over how they spend their income. So yeah, I don't know how Arsenal are being assessed, I don't know their wage budget, I don't know how much they have available within a certain assessment period before being in danger of breaching the regulations.
Thanks for the concern though mate.

{Ed002's Note - You have already made it clear that you just don't understand.}


4.) 02 Jul 2018 15:19:49
Chill out Glenn 😂😂😂😂.


5.) 02 Jul 2018 15:29:18
Pls Ed 002 when you do have time could you help throw light on how FFP affect us signing Max Mayer not that I am crazy we sign him, but I believe these information would really enlighten my perspective on many apperent free deals?
They say not to be inform is to be deformed, I really would appreciate.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - That isn't what I said just the idiot started spouting rubbish.}

Arsenal have agreed a fee - reported to be 22m euros (£19.3m) - for Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

BBC - David Ornstein

Welcome to Arsenal!

Glenn1308

1.) 19 Jun 2018 12:06:14
Once confirmed, appears a good signing.
Next Torreira?
Confirmed on 1st July? - Sokratis

Future signings?
Nzonzi
Martins

Then sell/ release? :
Ospina
Chambers
Jenkinson
Campbell
Perez
Akpom
Mustafi, if we sign 2 CB's

Contract issues:
Ramsey
Welbeck
Wilshere

Possibly loan out? :
Nelson
Willock
Reine-Adelaide.


2.) 19 Jun 2018 12:26:31
David Ornstein is s**t hot usually so subject to arranging and passing a medical he will be an Arsenal player.
Sokratis will be announced on or after July 1st due to the German tax year.
We face a struggle to sign Torreira because of the World Cup but i am confident we will get him done!

Other signings - I'm not on the hype of N'zonzi tbh but wouldn't say no to him fee dependent. I would like to see a quality winger come in on the left. Martins would be a good signing in that respect.


3.) 19 Jun 2018 13:06:18
Excellent news, Dick and Sven are definitely trying to adress the weaknesses and that's got to be extremely positive for us all.


4.) 19 Jun 2018 13:13:04
You would think so! City first game will be buzzing! New manager, new squad, good signings! Just need good support from the fans so the emirates is no longer a morgue!


5.) 19 Jun 2018 15:21:08
The fans are Dicks to lose Glen mate, I'm sure if the team show much more passion v city at home than they did last season and in the league cup final there will no complaints whatever the result.
City Liverpool United Spurs Chelsea you always hope to win but have to accept they are tough games that can go either way regardless of how well you play. Passion effort organisation commitment are absolute musts and all else is impossible to guarantee.


6.) 19 Jun 2018 16:45:17
Not sure why we need N'Zonzi if Torreira is signing. Without N'Zonzi, that gives us Torreira, Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, and Maitland-Niles competing for what is most likely 2 positions behind Ozil, assuming Wilshere leaves and Willock is loaned out. No room for him is there?

We may see a high profile departure or two though so who knows - not me!


7.) 19 Jun 2018 21:31:30
Wire looking at what you have written, from a defensive point of view, the midfield looks bare, so yes we do need him and we don't need el ninny. Going forward we are ok ish but that isn't our midfield issue, stopping the ball going through is.


8.) 19 Jun 2018 23:06:37
Cazorla, wilshire, gone el ninny needs replacing, torreira can't replace all three.


9.) 20 Jun 2018 05:11:08
Would like to see us sign Nzonzi, as we only have Maitland-Niles as a true DM and hopefully Torrreira. The days of playing creative/ attacking midfield players at DM are over. Emery may also consider playing Xhaka alongside Torreira, although I have a feeling Xhaka will be deployed slightly fiurther forward.


10.) 20 Jun 2018 08:24:37
Is Maitland Niles a DM?


11.) 20 Jun 2018 15:57:20
Not for me g62. Much more a multi-talented CM, at a stretch you could call him box to box. More like Ramsey than Coquelin if I had to compare.


 

 

18 Jun 2018 10:25:40
Morning Eds,

Things seem to have gone a little quiet on the Leno and Torreira talks. Appreciate the world cup can hold up things for Torreira but has there been any further progress on both of these? Some reports are saying that both deals are nearly agreed but nearly isn't good enough! haha.

Thank you :)

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - I cannot cannot sensibly comment on the timings of transfers.}


1.) 18 Jun 2018 11:13:48
Was just querying if further progress had been made with the negotiations that's all. Not necessarily the timing of when the transfer will be completed, but thanks you.

{Ed002's Note - What sort of progress are you expecting?}


2.) 18 Jun 2018 11:44:41
Well you mentioned that Leno may have to wait until BL have further progress finding a replacement. Has there been any development on that side? Also, there have been some reports that Roma may try and capture Leno with Real Madrid being expected to make a bid for Allison. Any further developments I consider as progress mate.
I get why LT could take a little longer but reports on both players have fallen quiet despite being at advanced stage.

{Ed002's Note - BL are looking to add two GKs, one is done and the other they stepped back from because the cost was seen as far too high. I have explained about Leno over and over - perhaps reading the European pages would help you.}


3.) 18 Jun 2018 12:47:54
Patience guys :D.


 

 

12 Jun 2018 14:22:36
"Arsenal are in talks with Sampdoria over signing midfielder Lucas Torreira, according to Sky in Italy.

The Gunners are thought to have offered to pay €30m in instalments instead of meeting the €25m release clause all at once.

An agreement is believed to be close but discussions over terms and agent's fees continue. "


Just the signing I want to see!

Glenn1308

1.) 12 Jun 2018 21:50:35
The Gardian is sayng the fee is agreed spread over 3 years and only agreeing personal terms is yet to be achieved, apparently we upped the Napoli offer by 5 million to win the race.
I've no idea how reliable or unreliable the Gardian are?


2.) 12 Jun 2018 22:38:08
My mate is from Italy and supports samp he said he’s a beast and dosnt stop working.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 23:39:25
Sounds a bit like Kante, really really hope so :-)


4.) 13 Jun 2018 05:31:37
Guardian's reporting is usually pretty late to the matter so if they're reporting something it's usually been backed by a few sources.

I don't believe anything till it's on Arsenal.com though :)


5.) 13 Jun 2018 07:39:19
That's no bad philosophy Wire mate :-) .


 

 

09 Jun 2018 20:26:04
Hey Ed's,
Do you know of any firm interest from Arsenal in Torreira? Not a bad looking release clause either from what I've read. £21.9m 🤔
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - An old Wenger target but I would putr aside any thoughts about a release clause. He would have been fourth on the list if Wenger had stayed but I would not rule him out as the scout who suggested him originally is one of those still at the club.}


1.) 09 Jun 2018 21:26:00
Interesting, thank you. Do you know if the other 3 in the list are still being actively pursued and who they are? I’ve seen a couple of names mentioned on sky (albeit more media approaches) but nothing has moved forward since. Cristante who’s now signed for Roma and Pellegrini. Could that mean Pellegrini is a possibility?

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, I was referring to the Defensive Midfield players. Apologies.}


2.) 09 Jun 2018 22:07:00
Understand that but since when have Arsenal ever cared about defensive and offensive 😂 a midfielder was always a midfielder to them! Do you know what DM’s we are seeking?

{Ed002's Note - That is why I answered the question.}

29 Jun 2018 13:21:36
Chelsea want Golovin and his asking price is £22m. Steal in this day and age with inflated transfer fees. Arsenal should be paying close attention in my opinion whether it costs more money or not. Would be a brilliant investment.

Glenn1308

1.) 29 Jun 2018 14:56:06
He certainly looks a player but 22 million? That might be the reserve price but if a few bidders emerge I'm sure the final selling figure will be much higher than that.


2.) 29 Jun 2018 15:14:47
Supposedly Gunner mate! I'm not sure whether that is a release clause or just as asking price but I would of thought it would be higher. Juventus had a £17.7m bid rejected and they refused to increase it.


3.) 29 Jun 2018 18:14:47
At 22 million he's definitely worth a cheeky punt Glen mate, I guess it will come to who wants him most and of course who he is happy to join as clubs can bid what they want but ultimately he will only go where he wants to be.


4.) 29 Jun 2018 20:01:45
Yeah exactly mate. Personally I think our attentions elsewhere with Soyuncu and Torreira so it would be all too much at once. Looks like there’s a little stumbling block with Soyuncu because both clubs are way apart on what they feel he’s worth. Torreira all be sealed so fingers crossed 🤞🏻.


5.) 29 Jun 2018 22:16:18
I think we should tread carefully. Remember the last Russian we signed after a successful international tournament.


6.) 29 Jun 2018 22:25:07
Our targets may be modest in terms of world football superpowers standards but the two things that please me most are we are looking to strengthen in the right areas and our targets are genuine and achievable unlike the benzema Mbabbe Higguain years.
It's not difficult to undestand why and where Emery is trying to take us asap.


7.) 29 Jun 2018 22:01:11
You could do an arsenal and offer 22mil. plus 1 pound.


8.) 29 Jun 2018 22:47:37
Or we could spend a billion and send everyone to sleep 12, horse for course mate, well stick to our 4th place chasing £1 and you are very welcome to your £ billion horlicks mate.


9.) 29 Jun 2018 22:53:47
Hey up leahy you cheeky dog 😂.


 

 

20 Jun 2018 10:41:46
Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira's transfer to Arsenal looks set to be confirmed soon after the Sampdoria president revealed a deal had already been completed.
Ferrero also suggested that all that was left to do was to make the transfer official.

Another one nearly over the line, could there be more? COYG!

Glenn1308

1.) 20 Jun 2018 10:55:08
Definitely in my opinion.


2.) 20 Jun 2018 11:35:25
I would think so too but that 'rumored' transfer budget is bulging now. It's fair enough selling players to raise some additional capital for transfers but you need offers first. I wouldn't be disappointed at all if that was all we brought in but another couple would be fantastic! (pure greed! )


3.) 20 Jun 2018 12:46:34
Has there been any interest in any of our players? I haven't seen much. Fulham were potentially interested in chambers.


4.) 20 Jun 2018 12:53:13
No optimism rather than greed mate, we could do with another grafter in the middle to go along with the new DM and add some physical presence as and when needed. Plus another CB too in my opinion.
If neither Kos or Mustafi are first choice next season that's got to be improvement.


5.) 20 Jun 2018 13:08:58
Yeah that's true mate. The only other thing that worries me is the effect too many changes can have! Look at Everton, they signed like 11 players or something stupid and it all went horribly wrong! I know it's silly to compare things like that but we don't want to unsettle to much! I just don't want it all going wrong! Someone give me a slap haha!


6.) 20 Jun 2018 14:06:10
I think if things weren't to bad when Dick arrived the unsettling effect of lots of signings is a fair one but because things have deteriorated badly over a long time major change had to happen asap.
If we had fixed slowly Pea Lacasette Ozil would all need replacing because of age by the time we got sorted and we'd be back to square one again.
No offence but Arsene let the quality of defence and midfield get very low so drastic action was the only way in my opinion
The message is loud and clear for all to hear, the cosy club is no longer in operation at AFC, it's time for all who are kept on to shape up or find new clubs.


7.) 20 Jun 2018 15:52:42
Yeah he isn't going to be a pushover and neither is his assistant manager! I hear he is bit of a loudmouth on the pitch too! I must say, the one thing i am looking forward to most is seeing Emery and his assistant NOT sitting in the dugout clutching his stomach like he's got constipation every week! Some passion on the sideline will do us a world of good.


 

 

15 Jun 2018 17:41:39
Granit Xhaka has signed a new long term contract and is an important player for the squad next season! 👏🏻 Thank you very much!

Glenn1308

1.) 15 Jun 2018 19:19:05
Horay that's the title in the bag then :-)
Real Barcelona City United must be crying in their beer, or laughing their heads off.


2.) 15 Jun 2018 19:48:25
Of all the things i'm happy about and that's most things, that for me is the first downer of our managers reign. Its something i don't understand at all. He is without doubt one of the reasons we were flakey this last two seasons. i'm baffled to put it mildly. I don't rate him one little bit.


3.) 15 Jun 2018 19:52:01
Gunner, the latter.


4.) 15 Jun 2018 19:56:54
The more Xhaka doesn't play the better he becomes in Arsenal fans with those funny glasses eyes Steve mate.
You can count the number of positive comments he received last season on the fingers of one hand but then bang! The season ends and he comes wonderful?
There is no sense in it all mate.


5.) 15 Jun 2018 20:11:36
Haha I knew that would set you two off 😂 I’m looking forward seeing every player in the sqaud under our new regime, Xhaka included! Roll on the new season!


6.) 15 Jun 2018 20:38:22
Just watching Spain v Portugal Glen mate, Iniesra Cisco Silva Spain look fantastic but can't help but think if only they had a Xhaka:-)


7.) 15 Jun 2018 20:47:00
Glenn, if he doesn't improve he won't play, so i suppose its up to the manager to work that out. I just hope it doesn't mean we aren't getting an nzonzi type midfielder as well as torreira. That for me is a necessity we can not do without.


8.) 15 Jun 2018 20:51:30
Ronaldo maybe no Granit Xhaka but wow he's still something very special.


9.) 15 Jun 2018 21:24:39
Ronaldo is amazing. What a brilliant game of football we just watched! Xhaka will always divide opinion but hey let’s get behind the team and see who plays well and who doesn’t like we do every year! He will be able to play where he’s confortable and won’t be relied on as our only defensive midfielder even though he isn’t one in the first place. Him and Torreira, Torreira and Ramsey will be a good partnership 👌🏻.


10.) 15 Jun 2018 21:31:37
You're happy about most things Steve? You hide it well! 😂 It is madness though, I'm all for giving everyone a fresh slate, but surely that comes before a new contract when you've been an underperformer.


11.) 15 Jun 2018 21:39:06
Eden, i agree, you should not reward under achievers if you want a winning attitude. He should have been made to earn it. But hey ho. I won't let that massive set back dampen my enthusiasm. Onwards and upwards.


12.) 15 Jun 2018 21:51:38
Gunner, i suppose that's one way of getting your own back on a country that has just given you a jail sentence.


13.) 15 Jun 2018 22:15:24
Looking forward to it.


14.) 15 Jun 2018 22:33:50
Ronaldo us an unbelievably talent Lads he lead his country supported by his team mates to the best of their ability against a brilliant Spain it's Messi turn tomorrow to show the world how good he is.
As for Xhaka I'm starting to feel sorry for him Glen because some Arsenal fans are turning him into a joke by pretending the last 2 seasons haven't happend where he has been extremely poor.
The pretence really does nothing to take the pressure off the lad it just puts the spotlight on him where his mistakes get more and more noticed.


15.) 15 Jun 2018 22:53:50
Emery seems to have studied our team and knows what works - if he thinks by adding steal next to Granit then great. Hop that gives us the balance needed.

Leno - Bellerin, Papa, Soyuncu, Nacho - Torreira and Granit - Ozil - Lacca, PEA and Mkhitaryan.

Nice balance and power while still having a creative edge. still leaves a few good squad players also.


 

 

13 Jun 2018 19:31:36
Impressed so far if all the deals go through!
Lichtsteiner
Sokratis
Torreira
Leno

Personally I would like to see the addition of Adli and Martins as well, that would really round off a brilliant window for Arsenal. However, some bodies would need to be sold so to me that makes perfect way for Chambers, Ospina and what looks to be Wilshere. That said, until it's signed we've only signed Lichtsteiner so I'll be less hasty 😂.

Glenn1308

1.) 13 Jun 2018 19:43:31
Oh and I forgot Caglar Soyuncu, I wouldn’t mind us signing him either 😂.


2.) 13 Jun 2018 20:08:19
Just wondering where Martins is going to fit in alongside Mesut Danny Ramsey Miki Pea Lacasette, surely we need to make room other than letting a keeper Defender and midfielder.
Whaf are we going to do with all these attacking players if we just collect collect collect them without letting other attacking players go?
Are we going to play keeper and 2 1 7 formation with a bench full of defenders who don't make the starting 2 :-)


3.) 13 Jun 2018 20:57:36
Well we can sell welbeck for a start. Martins and Iwobi and back up. Auba and Laca as strikers. Mkhi and Ozil can both play no.10 and Mkhi can also play on the right. Perez can also be sold so we don’t really have a problem to be fair. Martins is fast, tricky, skilful and would be a million times better than Danny.


4.) 13 Jun 2018 21:06:04
I think we are witnessing some blood letting. There will be big changes in and out and its most definitely needed. The core of our team is there but the obvious weaknesses need serious work and cutting.


5.) 13 Jun 2018 21:10:32
Gunner i also think players like ozil and others probably are dispensable, as far as the new managers pressing style is concerned. He may or may not want a different type of player to a few, like xhaka who are not that type of player. The players that we keep or get will have to buy into and be able to play his type of game.


6.) 13 Jun 2018 21:37:22
That's the thing Glen you've got to find room for all these attacking players and if Emery doesn't decide to play 4 attackers and plays 4 3 3 what 3 you going to use? Well I say 3 it's 2 because Pea plays that's not in question, so which 2 of Mesut Laca Miki Martins Iwobi gets into our best 11?
The europa league plus domestic cup games only won't be enough to keep any of them happy and settled sides do better than those who chop and change, champions very often use least players per season.
I think we will be a much harder working team from now on and games won't be shared round like sweeties, if you want to be successful you play your best team in every game because that's give you the best chance of getting the maximum number of points your capable of getting.
Steve I like Mesut a lot and would be sad to see him leave but if he has to go then he has to go but who would pay his wages that we pay him? Plus a transfer fee mate? Ramsey is much easier to cash in on if you want room and cash in return.


7.) 13 Jun 2018 21:43:17
Sureley, we can palm him off to utd, they like paying big wages to under achievers. Lol.


8.) 13 Jun 2018 21:46:53
Plus seriously, IF ozil is surplus to our requirements, there are some teams stupid enough to pay big money and wages to " world class players " isn't that what he is, at what he does? . Emery may be able to accommodate him but not too many like him can be. We just wait in anticipation.


9.) 13 Jun 2018 21:58:54
Hopefully we will see the real Mesut Ozil with Emery in charge, he was a world super star when he arrived mate.
Personally I'm not precious about any of our players just the team and whatever Emery needs to do to make us competitive again is ok in my book.


10.) 13 Jun 2018 22:13:31
Agree Gunner. We were not perfect before he came, so anything he does is fine by me to see if he can improve and rid the comfy culture.


11.) 13 Jun 2018 22:24:12
I think ( hope ) the cosy club disbanded when Arsene and Mertesacker gave their farewell speeches mate, I'm pretty sure all the players accept those days are gone now and whether it's at Arsenal or anywhere else they will have to up their work rate and effort to continue to make a living in football.


12.) 14 Jun 2018 05:33:43
Assuming all 3 deals complete, it will have been a good start to the transfer window for us. If the reported £70m is the budget then we will have approximately £15m remaining to spend, plus sales. I would like to us sign Nzonzi to play alongside Torreira and Soyuncu to form a new CB partnership with Sokratis. Martins would be the last signing in this window as 7 signings will be tricky to bed in.
I would sell/ release: Ospina, Chambers, Perez and Akpom,
If we cannot extend the deals of Ramsey and/ or Welbeck, then they must be sold and possibly replacements brought in. I would also love to keep Wilshere at the club.


13.) 14 Jun 2018 10:46:00
I’d rather Iwobi be sold than Welbeck.


 

 

12 Jun 2018 14:35:24
"Ainsley Mailtland-Niles has signed a new long term contract"

"Sky sources understand Arsenal one of a number of Premier League clubs interested in Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu.
Soyuncu's agent Mustafa Dogru said: "Sven Mislintat has been keen on Calgar since he was at Borussia Dortmund. There are concrete talks - all that remains is for a fee to be agreed. "

More good news! :)

Glenn1308

1.) 12 Jun 2018 15:41:02
All new signings are good news Glen mate and the more defensive in nature the better for me.
I am convinced we will go into next season with all bases manned adequately for the first time in a lora lora years.


2.) 12 Jun 2018 15:41:51
Maitland-Niles given the number 15 too, possible sign that Emery sees him playing a decent role next season. I hope this is the case 🤞🤞.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 16:05:28
Yeah it's really good to see! Soyuncu and Torreira would be a big plus for Arsenal. Personally I hope Soyuncu (if it happens) doesn't mean it's one or the other between him or Sokratis. Both would be excellent. A winger would round off the window nicely also!


4.) 12 Jun 2018 19:02:25
We look to be buying in the right areas now and that is both new for us and extremely exciting too.
No new strikers we don't need in the frame just players who fit the gaps that everyone but Arsene could see.
So far Dick and Sven seem to have thier fingers bang on. the pulse.


5.) 12 Jun 2018 19:19:13
Gunner, i can still see some tweeking in attack when the other end is sorted. The obvious faults are being dealt with first, that's how it should be.


6.) 12 Jun 2018 19:48:26
Possibly Steve mate, I'm sure we will look to improve year on year in all positions once we are up to speed all round.
We've had a motor that simply wasn't fit for purpose and was incapable of finishing yet alone winning a race, first things first, make the car capable of going past the local shops without breaking down and then think about adding the wide wheels and go faster stripes :-)


7.) 12 Jun 2018 20:37:15
I think we had an old Citroen CV which was only capable of going to the local shops and didn't like to be driven in the cold weather.


8.) 12 Jun 2018 20:57:15
The citoren cv certainly had an inferiority complex when it came up against a Jag BMW or Mercedes-Benz, in fact in the end it wasn't feeling great about having to face a skoda or Lada, especially once off its own driveway :-)


9.) 12 Jun 2018 21:07:43
It certainly made everyone travel sick and us just sick.

Alright Ed. FFP was established to prevent professional football clubs spending more than they earn to gain success. However, it's actually down to the individual clubs, directors and senior executives to make decisions over how they spend their income. So yeah, I don't know how Arsenal are being assessed, I don't know their wage budget, I don't know how much they have available within a certain assessment period before being in danger of breaching the regulations.
Thanks for the concern though mate.

How do you know I don't? One thing I and nobody else knows is how Arsenal are affected by it because we don't know the margins or the budget that is available to the club. With that being said, if they can't afford Meyer then I highly doubt they will be successful with some of the names mentioned below.

That's fair enough. If Arsenal honestly thought he was that good and would be a good addition to the squad then they would pay it. Cheers Ed.

Thanks Ed. Some names there I wouldn’t mind seeing included in our squad. Hopefully Martins, Vasquez, Mahrez or Pavon are seriously under consideration 🤞🏻 Although, based on the rejections last time out I don’t see Arsenal pursuing Mahrez.

How can he be part of the first team plans when he barely sees half a season. It's not a one off either, it's been season after season. If there is one thing that Arsenal have lacked over the last 6 or 7 years it's consistency and depth. We always have key players injured from the start of the season to the end. He's a squad rotation player at Arsenal now which is why another team with less quality will suit him. He needs to focus on playing football and he can't do that at Arsenal anymore. It's not nice, but it's the way it is. All the best to him.

Ozil does create chances, it’s the players that don’t take them. When germany went out of the World Cup, Ozil created the most goal scoring opportunities in one match then anyone else in the tournament but yet again he gets criticised.

Exactly that Gunner mate. Also the fact that it is so incredibly hard to get scouted in this country depending on where you live. The word on the poor streets of these countries that there’s a wonder kid somewhere and they’ll be snapped up in a heartbeat.

A lot of kids have nothing but football I guess. Football all day everyday in the local cages, it’s raw and it’s almost religion to some! English kids have their life very scripted in terms of what they do, obviously when they go to school and how they get through life. Most of the best players in the world started with absolutely nothing and have relied on football to make their lives better.

What about Iceland? They’re population is near 335,000 and they are becoming a bunch of tough oppenants. Hopefully they carry on producing good players. I know they’re not on the same level as Uruguay but hugely respected nonetheless.

Yeah exactly mate. Personally I think our attentions elsewhere with Soyuncu and Torreira so it would be all too much at once. Looks like there’s a little stumbling block with Soyuncu because both clubs are way apart on what they feel he’s worth. Torreira all be sealed so fingers crossed 🤞🏻.
