    Thanks for the pictures, almost as good as the real thing…

    Is it 7 or 10 million for Wreck it Ralph (janmaat) ? I’m confused….

    mitro looks about 40 in that pic!

  • 4 ShirebrookToon // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

    Hope Mitro’s injury isn’t too serious

  • 5 ShirebrookToon // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:16 PM


    I thought it was chiellini for a second lol

  • 6 G // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:16 PM

    So are we refering to Perez as Sinbad from now on then?

  • 7 manxpie // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:18 PM

    thats harsh on chiellini tbh
    mitro actually looks like he’s lost too much weight should have been on the weights more instead

  • 8 ShirebrookToon // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:20 PM

    thought he looked quicker in that pic lol

    I honestly can’t work out why there is so much negativity on here regarding the players leaving. Colo? Heart’s not been in it for ages, one of the highest earners and captain yet he can’t muster a solid performance. Sold. Thauvin? Never performed for us once. Gone. Obertan? Rubbish. Gone. Marveaux? Never performed. Gone. Widnaldum? A handful of decent games bit overall went missing. Liverpool fans already complaining about the same thing. Gone for a lovely profit. Sissoko? Can’t wait to get him gone. Tiote? Not done anything for ages. Go. Siem de jong? Not done anything (sadly, I regret it not working out for him here), loaned for the season. Townsend? Was never gonna put his all into a championship side. Gone. Replaced by young, hungry, ambitious players wanting to actually play for our club. No competition. Quit your moaning.

    And his wig is about to blow off

  • 13 manxpie // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:26 PM

    belfast can you ask him for rachel riley’s number?

  • 14 JP...from The Rock // Aug 23, 2016 at 10:28 PM

    Still can’t believe Aarons is injured once again! We really need to address our wingers situation. It’s ridiculous, we can’t go into the new season this light in that area.

    The transfers are good if you manage to reduce the wage bill and get top money while bringing in good determined players in their place. Easier said than done. 7.5 million for Janmaat isn’t exactly “fantastic” money, and Yedlin at 5 not a fantastic replacement, if those figures are accurate, but on balance a pretty good deal for us. Widjnaldum at 25 very good, Sissoko at 35 probably better, but they do need to be replaced very prudently to make it worthwhile.

    fatman aye we have got rid of a shit load of highish earners that did fusk all for us aswell
    we defo need more attacking players but i feel ashley’s helicopter will get some use next wednesday probably with sisko in it
