So Sir Jim seems happy for once.

Re: Football Season 2017/2018

Liverpool was more satire than anything.

Man United have supposedly had a £75m deal for Lukaku accepted. 5 shy of Ronaldo to Madrid. So that's where we're at with money now. Mid and lower table clubs have had what you could consider a war chest for a season or two before it's quickly caught up and the money they have is merely a bigger figure with lower value all together now.

Lukaku I'd have expected near £50 million going back over. So if you throw in the market inflation you're going to deal at £75 million.

It's worth noting again that the value holds up way better outside of the transfer market and clubs should be looking at setting aside portions of money to improve other things ranging from away tickets being subsidised, stadium improvements and investments in their own academies.

Agreed Den, the academies seem to be almost irrelevant these days.
As for Liverpool, they scare me every time they try to do business, wondering how they will manage to shoot themselves in the foot. However personally I think Salah will prove to be a good buy and if JK can pull a rabbit out of the hat to get VVD and Keita then I'll be very pleased (not to mention flabbergasted)..

Re: Football Season 2017/2018

Adama Traore in talks with Newcastle after being ready to sign for Chelsea 2 weeks ago apparently. Not sure where he fits in with Hazard and Willian?

Expecting a swap deal Karl Darlow + cash for Traore, makes sense. What doesn't make sense is this isn't a priority position for us to by buying in. Atsu made a permanent move and we have Ritchie. I'd expect Atsu to be an impact sub in such a case.

Sporting quote £52 million for Bas Dost. Newcastle have made it clear they won't be going any higher than £40 million. Is a worrying figure for me regardless. I'd call this one a dud now. If anything I'd tip Everton for that signing as it stands.
