    Think HAIG was a Wolves fan for the majority of last season.

    I’m delighted they won and I hope they win next week, as the Thurs / Sunday EL effect will hopefully impact their league form.

    Its wise to not take it too seriously as a club if your trying to get back into the top four or even trying to win the title, at least until the latter stages, if you make it that far with say your U23's.

    Its a good comp to win though, loved when we won it in 2001 when we wernt doing **** all in the league at the time.

    Just looking at that Thiago deal for Liverpool. You gotta say that at £20m + £5m add on's that's a ****ing brilliant deal for them.
    Quality player who's proven at the very top level. It's quite a coup for them that.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to win it as it's a pot and a place in the CL. But there are so many ****ing games, and combined with a condensed league this year, the games are going to be coming every 2/3 days what with the EFL and FA cup too.

    I want to see Arsenal really push on to get back into the top 4. And I think that should be our priority this season.

    And they’ve managed to get the fee on the drip as they’re skint.

    Top player and a very good deal.

    *note to Kopites, this ^ is what an honest assessment is*

    Does this mean if he's a dud in the first season you can cancel the other payments and send him back?

    We'll see. We still need to add a couple of players. If we can get Thomas Partey in, then we'll have strengthened right through the spine of the team and I think we'll be in decent shape to mount a top 4 challenge at least.

    Maybe, I do think Arteta will be the one to get you back competing though, you can see how much better you are especially at playing it from the back which was apparent in the Charity Shield I just think this season might be too soon, but saying that there's still time for some big signings for a lot of clubs these next few weeks so who fukin knows really bru<laugh>

    Arteta has transformed the whole mentality of the team, so that bodes well. We've become difficult to beat, which was the exact ****ing opposite of what we've been for the last 7-8 years. We've finally got a backbone. And we've got Aubameyang who's a ****ing weapon up front.

    Getting a deal Over a number of seasons is good work, but nothing new with stages payments.

    but imagine a whole MF for about £40m

    A lot of what happens down in the lower leagues, gets overlooked due to the focus on the big clubs. As some of you might remember The Gills reduced their playing staff to 7 during the virus, as everyone had to come off the wage bill. This was to Bristol Rovers benefit who picked up two decent players from us in Ehmer and Hanlan.

    So we had to build a new team from loans, with help from the development sides of Arsenal, Spurs and Celtic (4 players), obviously this is appreciated. However, the season starts, and after our first league game, against Hull City, we lost a midfielder immediately to an injury during the game. Unknown then but worse was to come, in the League Cup game (Carabao) we lost the other midfielder to a suspected broken leg against Coventry, both these injured players alternated the Captain role.

    Evans was left with the stark reality, that on Saturday going to Wigan, we only had around 12-13 players to take! We all know a team can not play 90 minutes with that reality. Thankfully, Coventry have stepped forward after our league cup game against them, and given us Josh Eccles on a season loan, he was seen as probably the playmaker for Coventry in the previous game. BTW we didn't deserve to win, luck for the result was on our side.

    Naturally it goes without saying we are grateful to Coventry for stepping in and helping us. Otherwise Steve Evans would have had to look at kids that are not ready for first team football. Evans has done a brilliant job in getting this squad together, he has his haters within football in general, but at the moment, the bad boy has come good.
