    So if the Rags don't sign Bale Ronny and Griezman in the summer they can still sign them in January as they are not cup tied, at least the M(U)EN will be happy with the new rule.

    So Barca sign a player they can't use so get a rule change. What a surprise.

    Such cynicism. And on here as well. I'm shocked.

    On the other hand supposedly the reason Fred stayed in January was he wouldnt be eligible for c/l with us so we might benefit from it in the future.

    Do our business properly and January signings shouldn't be necessary, we gambled too much on Vinnie and Yaya this season hence signing Laporte and going for Fred. Sanchez was down to Arsenal acting the clown tbf and worked in our favour in the end.

    True, think well make the two we need this summer, then barring a serious injury we wont be doing January at all.

    Since Mancini's first summer window we've only signed Džeko, Pizarro (loan), Bony and Laporte in 8 windows so it would seem the management agree with my stance on it that new signings need a preseason and the squad should be complete on September 1st. Of those 4 Džeko didn't do much until the following season, Laporte will probably end up the same as he's being used sparingly, Bony was a disaster and Pizarro was a highly experienced back up who did a great job when called upon for 5 months or so.

    Edit: Džeko scored a couple of huge goals in 10/11 but it was still obvious to all and sundry that he didn't truly find his feet until the following season.

    UEFA will bring it in for all clubs except PSG and City though.
