48 hours to the transfer window closing.... with all these potential transfers being banded about with different players we are linked with, post here what you think our outcome with regard who we will sign or not sign.
Nothing worse than seeing the away fans sitting in the prime position behind the goal especially when Man U scored yesterday celebrating with our fans put in the corners... something else club is way behind on other astute clubs hiding the away fans away on the sides or the corners.
Everton have put a bid in for £40M then £40M with add ons?
So this is a game of Everton calling our bluff to see if we cave in on the final day of the window and get Siggy on the cheap and us waiting on Everton to pay up hoping they will pay £50M and get their man.
Either way we are stuffed here.. if this goes to the final day we i'm sceptical we will have 2 or 3 signings waiting in the wings.
So the likelihood is we'll get £45M as an undisclosed fee or one unhappy Siggy on our books going into September also without any further signings to our lean squad.
Not sure if this has been commented on, I spent most of the first half watching Leon and Southampton done a job o him pressing him and stopping him playing out from the back and was also doubled up on when the Saints were attacking . It was evident he was struggling especially with the pace of the game but there was very few glimpses of him leading the side verbally o the pitch. The bizzare thing is when the captain arm band went to Routledge, he was having a mare even by his standards and was clearly trying to hide second half when on one situation Naughton put him through down the right with nobody in front of him he squared a ball to Fer who was under pressure and he lost possession. Should we be looking at Mawson as skipper.. he was organising the defence and a lot of players were looking to him.
