    Jules Koundé

    My opinion - we will get Kounde, we just don't want to pay in excess of 70m to get him and we are in a game of who blinks first. Sevilla will drop the fee a little but are aware they have to pay a 20% sell on clause which will be complicating matters. I think we can all forget Koulibaly, he's...

    Ferran Torres - 2020/21 Performances

    They will figure out that to use his pace and dribbling ability he needs the ball far quicker. He rarely had space to attack. Don't worry he will be fine.

    Bournemouth (H) - CC 3rd Round Post-match Thread

    I thought he played well tonight - we looked far more solid when he came on. He still has plenty of upside just needs a long run in the team. People forget how much football he has missed.

    Riyad Mahrez - 2020/21 Performances

    Interesting to me that Ferran looked much better once Kev came on and looked to get the ball to him quickly - this gives him one man to beat whereas Mahrez will take five or six touches. I noticed Delap making some lovely angled runs when Mahrez had the ball and no pass came. He's so talented...

    Bournemouth (H) - CC 3rd Round Post-match Thread

    Nail on the head. He's no £60m player for me.

    Bournemouth (H) - CC 3rd Round Post-match Thread

    I was hoping this year would see a change - and I know it's only one game - but he is far too greedy. Seemed reluctant to give Torres the ball early so when he did get the ball he was tightly marked, tried to take shots when better passes were on, same old, same old. He did help create the goal...

    Liam Delap - 2020/21 Performances

    You can't ask for more on a senior debut. Love that he put himself about, held the ball up well and what a finish. Fab.

    Nicolas Otamendi

    Otamendi leaving paves the way for the chips to fall for a Kounde deal. Hope so.

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    I posted before the game that we would know a lot more about how this season is going to look after tonights game. Players looked really up for it from the start & Pep looked fully engaged as usual which is a great sign - also glad he decided to bring on Ferran after they scored instead of...

    People forgetting that the Wolves keeper made two world class saves.

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    Fantastic debut from Ake, made a big difference with some good challenges when they were pressing for an equaliser. Usual superb performance from Kev. I also thought Rodri played well and the work rate of Phil, Raheem and Jesus was excellent. Had a few nervous moments when Mendy & Stones...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    I think we are one of, if not the best clubs with regards to player support and treatment. We look after them so well - from moving house, dietary support, personal assistants to settling into our first class training facilities. Sometimes fans do not factor in a young man just missing his...

    Jules Koundé

    Good point although I do think the club try to plan well ahead of time - you have to look at the deals we are making for 16-18 year olds from all over the world. One day fairly soon one of them will become a superstar. Re this year I think they had a list with valuations attached and have stuck...

    Jules Koundé

    Agree but a big plus for me is his ability to stop crosses coming into the box by using his pace and positional sense. That has been something that has hurt us a lot. I really hope the reports are true - a perfect fit for us.
