    Just don't see us spending that sort of cash on someone.... although I have not seen him play.

    We do need another winger though
    tisk tisk - small clubitis again.

    Whether the club does or doesn't is immaterial the simple fact is it now can.



    This has more than whiff of Gross' transfer about it, and is once again testament to the club keeping an even keel.

    3 years ago Winstano scouted him.
    The club bought him over, meet the staff, make him feel welcome (I seem to remember a photo on the pitch, big smiles and Albion carrier bags)
    Keep in touch.
    Perhaps even Winstano bumped into him throughout the Locadia deal.

    Then boom, 'we're still interested in signing you, you remember everyone at the club, don't you?'

      I have to give it to you Mr Hughton, you are a far better Manager than I ever thought.

      Imagine palace going back for a player 3 years later:-

      "So is the club still the same"
      "Well the ground is"
      "Oh that's a shame. Is that fella my girlfriend didn't want to be left alone with still the manager?"
      "No, neither is Sam or Frank, but we do have a pensioner in charge do you remember the fella who had Harry Kane taking corners?"
      "What about at the top of the club, that couldn't have changed in 3 years?"
      "Well 2 owners have gone and have been replaced to 2 American Hedge Fund managers, and we're currently having a little snafu with the accounts, but other than that, we're tip top".

      "I'll get back to you".

      Marshy, don't forget we were rumoured to have offered more than that for Vincent Janssen from Spurs.

      That was desperation money, were this deal to go through and smash the transfer record it will be done with careful planning and consideration.

      We're a better prospect to join now. We'll be far from favourites to go down.

      I do. Why not? We've got more cash now. We've also struck two bargains already this transfer window. If we're going to break our transfer record, it'll be on a forward/winger/ACM in all likelihood.

      That's annoying. Two threads on this chap. Can we merge them please?
      First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me - Martin Niemoller

      One is about him coming, the other is about him not coming. We should keep them both for now, just in case.

      Fair point.
