The January Transfer Thread 2022

"Merd"

Vital 1st Team Regular
Can just hear Slimy Genius Purslow now.

Off mike - ‘ Yeah , ha ha , the peasants believed me last time so I’ll use it again‘.

Mike on.

‘We have bought these 3 goalkeepers as we think they each have an attribute to replace what Martinez has‘.

:slap:
I think Purslow was being genuine, he really thought he could buy three players to plug the gaps. That’s naivety not deception. Unfortunately, one player will never equate to another because they are all individuals. He had to attempt to fill the Jack sized void and obviously tried to rationalise why we had bought those three players in particular. I don’t see any conspiracy here.
 
Well, whatever we had lined up two weeks ago will now be on the back burner until Steven decides what he needs unless anyone thinks Lange and Purslow just sign random players without any input from the main man who has to work with them.
 
Think we need to cash in on him if his contract expires in 2023. I really like Dougie, I think he’ll go on to be an established Champs League player but equally he’s not irreplaceable for us and what we need.
I can’t really see why Dougie would think he’d be better off at any of the clubs that are likely be interested in him. He is with a club with big ambitions, and as he is still young, those ambitions have a strong chance of being realised well within his playing career. However, I agree that if he isn’t prepared to sign a new contract then we should move him on asap, rather than run the risk of losing him for nothing in 2023.

It's warmer in Italy and Brazilians don't like the English weather as a rule
