Not sure if this may have cropped up on any other posts, but I think since Davies come into the team, Barkley has looked the player we hoped he would be.

Personally I think it has lifted the weight off Barkleys shoulder, he has definitely been more consistent, or am I am looking too deep into this.

I agree, i honestly think davies looks even better when barry goes off.

When we are interested in a player from the UK, who's responsibility is it that the player arrives at the right place at the right time for a medical. Also when getting in a foreign player who arranges the flights and stuff before the medical?

If a player gets injured in a match AFTER clubs have agreed terms and player is subject to a medical, can the potential buying team claim any compensation?

If a player fails a medical due to something that all parties were previously unaware of, are any costs refunded to the potential buying team?

{Ed002's Note - (a) The player and his agent. (b) The buying club would pay expenses. (c) I don't really understand the question but if you are referring to the buying club claiming compensation for a player who belongs to another club then no. (d) No, but the costs will at that point be trivial.}

Thanks Ed, It gives another insight into how things are done. I will admit answer (a) did some what surprise me. Thanks agaian

{Ed002's Note - Maybe Everton are different and mail teh player a bus ticket.}

Got loads of money now we can even afford for them to get a taxi to the bus stop. ( within reason of course )

{Ed025's Note - love it grumpy..

Leon Bailey at Genk left out of their squad.

There are a number of clubs interested.
He has a very interesting back story
19 but certainly a talent.

I'd like to give funds mori and Joel a mention Blues. I for one was not convinced by either player.

Fines mori looks good to me in the 3 also adds balance as he can use his left peg. Still unsure on his distribution but as a defender he does well. He was taken out the side and has come back strong.

Joel - who I think has impressed over the past 4 games or so has had dips and looked brilliant at times especially away to Leicester. Still makes silly decisions in rushing his kicking an sometimes punches which is a bread n butter catch. But I'm on board with him we aren't going to win the league we aren't getting the cup final. So give him the rest or the season to prove himself and also give Walsh an extra term to find a replacement if needed.

Thinks it's looking bright for the blues under this new structure and I'm on board for the journey.

RK harsh and Moshiri deep pockets.

I'm sold.

I echo most of the points made in your post Jimbo. Although for me, Mori worries me when a long ball comes over the top. There was 2 instances in the City game where Funes Mori was caught trying to be clever by stepping up and attempting to play offside, which allowed the runner to get in behind. The most notable of the 2 was when De Bruyne played a ball over the top to Sterling who got on the end of it and fired a very tame volley at Joel (could have easily been a goal) . He didn't communicate with the backline so was the only player attempting to play the trap and it was nearly costly. Also in the Palace game he didn't do enough to shephard Benteke under the ball when his header rattled the bar. Obviously with hindsight these mistakes weren't costly but on another day the could have been. Perhaps I am being too cynical because other than those instances, I think Mori has performed to a good standard and has merited his place in the starting 11.

Just a note on Joel, I think he's been brilliant since he has come in the past 5 games or so. He was crucial in the Palace win with that save from Dann and coming to claim the corner in the dying seconds. Also he was commanding at key times in the City game, such as rushing out at Silva who was left completely unmarked in the box, causing him to dither and ultimately lose the ball. The question is whether he can keep this standard up from now til the end of the season. I would still like to see a keeper bought in as Stekelenburg does not convince me.

Just because Delboy has gone doesn't mean we've got a replacement ready in place, we already have Mirallas, Lennon, Lookman and even Valencia to fill his space on the bench.

Ed, are we actually in talks with anyone about potential incomings? Lots of rumours but only one iv heard we are actually trying for is ghezzal.

{Ed002's Note - I have said where I know of interest.}

Karanka at Boro wants del boy why don't we ask for Adama Traore? The fastest player in the prem. Play him through the middle with Rom. Imagine those 2 running at defences (especially the Reds) with Ross and Tom supplying the passes and Morgan and Gueye in behind. Apparently Chelsea are watching him, I know he's not the finished article but neither are Davis or Lookman and look (no pun intended) what Koeman is doing with those 2. I'm sure a deal would suit us Boro and Traore as he'd go straight into our side.

Del going to Inter mate, that's where he wants to play.

22 Jan 2017 17:45:06
Littlr to no end-product.

22 Jan 2017 17:48:54
Or is it AC 😀

22 Jan 2017 19:21:14
I live in town next door to Middlesbrough, and by all accounts he has had 1 recent game. He's sort of like del boy. Del has magic in his feet but gets knackered after twenty mins and isn't really a team player. Adama is blistering quick and, well, that's it really, and that's coming from a mate who is a season ticket holder.

22 Jan 2017 16:57:39
Is anybody else looking at 4,5 and 6th in the league and thinking, yeah we can catch them. All 3 look poor at the back.

I think we've just got to take it game by game Smit. There's no harm in being ambitious but I think it's a huge ask, especially with the quality the teams above us possess. If we keep plucking away, playing our own game and continue this run then who knows where we'll end up. Although as the saying goes we can only look to the next game, which will be a very difficult encounter against Stoke, especially at their place. I'm trying not to get too carried away after a few good results, and I hope the players aren't either because that's when things begin to slip, although I don't think Koeman would allow it.

22 Jan 2017 18:40:35
Agree Bitterblue. One game at a time. Utd are playing good stuff as of late. I don't think we'll over take them. If anything I expect them to go up the table now that Mourinho has found his feet.

6th maybe, 5th with a big stretch. Its do able though. 7th at worst I would expect.

23 Jan 2017 08:16:49
As well as consistency (love em but let's face it) we need the top 6 to falter.

22 Jan 2017 14:03:14
HI eds so with a week off do you think we'll push hard for any deals to be available for our next game

{Ed025's Note - very much so berkshire, we have irons in fires and hopefully one or two will come off mate..
