Haha. As I said yesterday, Inter not interested in anything if it isn't permanent. Who shall we go for now then? 😂 getting beyond a joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't see the fuss about singing short term players anyway, either we want a player to be part of our next 18 months or we don't, its not all about this season so if we don't want them for more than a few months and thier club doesn't want to simply loan them, move along nothing to see here.
We most certainly shouldn't be signing a winger when our funds are so short because we have Nelson returning and we should give him a chance to save us a few bob and spend where we need it most.
Miki and Danny have no resale value so if possible we might as well keep them for next season along with Nelson and worry about getting some kind of defence sorted.
Surely with such limited funds we've got to prioritise where we are weakest even if the likes of Miki aren't brilliant we still have a lot less problems offensively than we do defensively.
We will not be challenging for the title next season no matter what we do but top 4 might be possible if we spend what we have where we need it most.

Yep we won't get much done faffing about like this, you can't blame them, for wanting it to be permanent or an obligation to buy, it's not like a young player where we would be doing them a favour and giving him game time and when we sent him back his value might of increased, his value will of decreased if we decide its not for us.

Exactly Eden mate. It's not like there suddenly going to give in and agree to our very one sided approach.
I can only assume we either have other less publicised deals going on elsewhere or we are simply not that fussed about doing any business this widow but want to been seen to have tried to do so.

I’m just grateful we sorted out this top team behind the scenes to get transfers sorted out without much fuss. 🙄.

I agree about not signing short term players but I not the winger situation. Seeing as Nelson is the only registered winger on our books we definitely need another! Can’t expect him to be the one to change things out wide on his own and some experience in that position would only give him something to gain confidence from as well! A winger yes, an aging winger who we are going to look to pay €40m for. No. Suarez or Nkunku can help us out wide as well as in the middle.

{Ed0333's Note - sometimes you need to spend exuberant amounts of money on good players regardless of age. There’s only a small pool of players out there in January and Perisic gets you Champions League it would be worth it.

Despite all the noise not much seems different to be fair Stoner mate, the new backroom boys did well last January and in the summer but it's all looking more familiar again now mate.
I don't think all is rosy in the back room garden at present.

But when you’re running a business like ours you can’t afford to spend exuberant amount of money on players, only for them to need replacing in 18 months time. They may not be world cup winners etc but there are plenty of younger players out there who would relish the opportunity. Great, sign perisic he’s a fantastic player and will do us the world of good but with our finances, we need to stop plugging gaps and look to progress over time, not immediately. In my opinion I would rather see Arsenal commit to buying Suarez and Nkunku for the combind value of Perisic and then sign another player at CB for a larger fee.

If we were one player away I'd say push the boat out with 40 million on player age 29 with no resale value but we are 7 to 9 players away with limited funds so it would be crazy to throw all we have on one player with a very short time left at the top.

28 Jan 2019 07:07:36
We can give Ozil 15mil a year for doing stuff all but can't sign anyone unless on a free. something seriously wrong at our club.

Very very poor financial management Sparky and it will take time to recover from.
