I honestly think a deal has already been agreed for Rice....but will prob not happen till the very end of the window so we can get players in without getting held to ransom because of the Rice transfer money that we would have if it was done now.
Hope I am wrong, but I can see this happening.
Plus now that fans won’t be coming back to the games for a long time the board won’t be scared to sell him.
Mario who most liked when here before to make us feel a bit better.... mmm I can foresee a cunning plan sir !

Only Sullivan would do that without an adequate defensive midfield replacement.

That happens and it’ll be all over .

We’ll be shuffling off this PL coil.

Never to return.
Bring back Jonathon !

They have definitely not bid yet....they may yet still but they have been desperately trying to get this goalie in in the last three weeks.

I believe that Chelsea are not so convinced that he is worth 80m. I think we big him up but they are already struggling to get Mount in the side and 80m would really be for a starter. Is he better than Kante AND Jorginho ?

No, but he is English. And as we know that puts a price premium on a player. Imo Chilwell and Reguilon are players of a very similar quality but Chelsea paid considerably more for Chilwell. And there are many similar examples.
TRADITION--Just because we've always done it like this doesn't mean it's not incredibly SILLY

True. They were short in those areas though.

Basmati is on the point of a transfer request. But will only do so if the plastics submit a formal bid. Yet they'll only do so if they can offload a few unwanted players themselves.

Either way, his heart's not in it any more.
Make me an offer.

Bloody right n'all
Poor Dave's skint. He's sold the Bentley for a 2nd hand vauxhall cavalier, sold the mansion for a bedsit in catford and got himself a job doing the Nightshift at KFC. Goldstein's been turfed out of the heebie old folks home wearing shitstained boxers and the other thing's whoring herself out in the backstreets of Luton town centre.
And for what, so uncle Ben can stroll around hardly breaking a sweat. If he was half the player the magicial Charlie Adam is then different story, but quite frankly he's not a patch on Charlie's freshly ironed shorts.

Love a cup of Rosey I do.

Inside info.

If I said more I'd have to kill a small Welshman.

Dear Disgusted.

Contrary to speculation, Goldie is fine. He's currently relaxing in embalming fluid and is ready to make decisions after Igor zaps 50,000 volts into him. As for the duchess, it's true that things are a bit tight at the ILS and she did indeed do a bit of moonlighting in Luton for the greater good. She returned with £200 and 50p. When I asked who gave her 50p she said all of them. But I digress.

With Son of Lockdown upon us and no fans until 2075, cost cutting is inevitable. We're not oil or tech barons even though we saved the club. But fear not. The new, super-improved rampant rabbit, Curfew Rabbit, is soon available online, as are Payet shirts. Both at the very reasonable price of £70. And I give you my word that all proceeds will go straight into team rebuilding. There's a very promising Bulgarian at Lokomotiv Buggerov, only 37, who I reckon we've got a chance on.

Young Rice will not be sold. But every player has a price. If the plastic fuckers come in on October 5th with anything north of a bullseye we'd be derelict in our duties not giving it consideration.

As for Charlie. As you know I've been trying to get him for ages and I was hoping to use the Snodster as a translator. But he told me to fuck off. So I'm afraid it looks unlikely.

But the future is bright. The future is claret and blue. The Central Line will still get you from Notting Hill Gate to Stratford in 90 seconds.


Come on you hamsters.



Love and kisses.


Dave.
