    I repeat what I said before: if Elon Musk buys us, I'm out

    And then he'd probably call you a nonce.

    Given his track record of tanking Tesla's value not because they're flammable deathtraps that have a nasty habit of deciding they want to drive through a path of pedestrians 90 degrees removed from where you want to drive but because he thinks their share value is "too high", I dread to imagine what he'd do if he thinks our league position is "too high"

    Mark Hughes'll be manager in time for Pointless

    Anthony Martial is reportedly available this January

    It'd be nice if he played as a RW at some point in the last two years, really it would...

    Sule's out of contract next summer, so I assume these "leaked" messages are to do with that.
    Started the season well with Bayern, by all accounts, so an extension may be under negotiation.
    He's had quite a few injury issues, apparently.

    I mean it's not the first thing I think of when somebody uses the terms "leaked" and "Der Spiegel"...

    ...so, of course, we got Aurier instead

    Might be worth trying to bring back Walker-Peters in January, if we can move on Doherty.

    Maybe I am bring harsh but if he is not good enough to get into the Southampton side (who are not hoping for top 6) why would he be good enough to get into our side (who are hoping for a top 6 finish)?

    He's been displaced by a very good player who appears to have a lot of potential.
    Chelsea were extremely unhappy to lose him, by all accounts, but he wanted to start regularly.

    Walker-Peters would be a clear upgrade on Doherty, in my opinion and he's home and clubgrown.
    Our balance in that area needs to be addressed if we want to improve our squad.

    Also probably worth nothing that Walker-Peters is playing for Southampton at the moment.
    They've chucked him in at left-back, where he's played in the past. Won the U20 World Cup there, IIRC.

    Do we have any youth keepers we want to claim are valued at £15m?

    So here's a question that's going around my mind

    In the summer of 2018, this is effectively how our transfer business went
    Poch: "I want to sign Tanguy Ndombele"
    Levy: "Okay, we'll see if we can make an offer to Amiens and gazump him from under Lyon"
    Poch: "Okay, I'll wait"
    Levy: "..."
    Poch: "What?"
    Levy: "Turns out Lyon triggered the option to make his loan permanent a few months back"
    Poch: "Okay, so we'll make a bid to Lyon"
    Levy "..."
    Poch: "What is it?"
    Levy: "Lyon told us to sod off, but hang on a moment. Steve? Can you come in here?"
    Hitchen: "Yes?"
    Levy: "Can you think of a CM who can go into our team right away?"
    Hitchen: "I hear Monaco are willing to listen to bids for Youri Tielemans. Are you interested?"
    Levy: "Sounds good to me. What do you think Mauricio?"
    Poch: "..."
    Levy: "What is it?"
    "Poch: "I want Tanguy Ndombele"
    Hitchen: "But Tielemans is available"
    Poch: "Ndombele"
    Levy: "Also Moussa wants to leave as he can't handle the rigours of the Premier League anymore"
    Poch: "Ndombele"
    Levy: "But..."
    Poch: "Ndombele"

    While obviously paraphrased to the nth degree (or I feckin' hope so, anyway...) the fact Poch's attitude was the players he wanted or nobody at all, to the point that Levy and Hitchen were suggesting Tielemans only to have their suggestion turned down because of this - and Dan Kilpatrick is on record saying that is exactly what happened with Tielemans specifically - that's certainly a decent contender for the butterfly effect moment we're currently on the receiving end of

    Our current predicament is not down to us passing on Youri Tielemans.

    Decent player no doubt and an upgrade on Ndombele and circa 2018-21 Dele, but not a true replacement for either Eriksen or Dembele so we'd likely still have the same issues as we have now.

    Also with the passage of time it is clear that Tielemans is miles off the likes of Chelsea, City and Pool. He's a top 6 player playing for a top 6 team, nothing more.

    Our problems run far deeper than Poch's stubbornness in the market.
