Morning Ed, just read that Portugal, Russia and Turkey all have transfer windows that are still open. Can see any more going? Only ones I can picture leaving now is tosun james and maybe delph but guessing james is going to be a struggle.

{Ed002's Note - Yes they are all open and efforts will continue to be made.}

I think there will still be movement. Tosun and James will surely be priorities, clearly we’re still in a desperate situation, James wages off the books, even if we pay half, will help. Then there’s Gomes too, he may well leave, Delph, l will stay I reckon. On another note, why on earth were we after Donny VdB? We don’t need him? Unless we know James and Gomes are off?

I wouldn't say desperate, Swinners, there's a lot been done to reduce the wage bill over the last 12 months. The likes of Bernard and Walcott leaving have saved a few quid.
We don't know for sure if we did bid for VDB, could just be paper talk. I've seen reports saying we made a late bid and others saying there is no substance to it. Not too sure if we can afford to let anyone else go now that we can't bring replacements in, a couple of injuries and we are stripped to the bones as it is mate.

There’s a reason Man U spent big on DVDB.
Fernandes keeping you out of the team does not make you a bad player. Still not sure he’s a Benitez player.
Still hoping we can sign a free cover for full back.

Don't think Tosun would pass a medical.

Well he can’t pass a ball.

Putting 2 and 2 together, I think the dvdb move may have been to allow gomes to go (there was rumours a move to benfica was on) . Whatever we think of gomes, I don't think we could let him go without replacing him. Allan decoure Davies would be the only midfielders we could rely on. can't count on gbamin or delph on injuries alone.

Van der beek reminds me of Dave Klassen. Great in his own league but out of his depth in the Premier!
