Zaha still with us, so no money from his sale.
We have spent nearly £45 Mill in this window.


If that equates to no more money in the kitty, then we were never in for this lad. Where do you get a 28 goal Championship striker for less than 15mil?
That in its self would not surprise me. IMO, we are much more likely to be looking for another loan or two.

Nketiah is a very good player but recently injured. Not sure we want another walking wounded signing.

 


The beatings will stop when morale improves.

With Ings gone, he'll likely get a starting spot there too. Not sure he would with us

I had heard about a couple of weeks ago that it was unlikely we would sign him, hence my comment on HOL that I would be surprised if we did so.

I think one more loan, hopefully to buy, Nelson or Lookman,

To be truthful, I am not enthusiastic about either of these players.

Apropos Armstrong he can slip seamlessly into the Ings role alongside Che Adams and will in all probability get more starts than he would for us.

Apropos Norwich their only outgoing sale for which they received money was Buendia for £33 Mill which could rise to £38 Mill.There is also a 10% sell-on clause.
I think they have spent about £30 Mill on incoming transfers.

True enough

Still on something close to zero net in this window and that makes them more solvent than most.

Given our purchases so far and absence of income from sales I'm actually quite happy to pass on this one unless it was a bargain (for me under 15 mill). No particular angst on missing out on targets.

Not, sure if it's been posted or if I'm correct but didn't we put in a bid already ourselves or am I mixing up my click bait news?

I've been waiting for this one to cross the line or for someone to come out and say that we never had any interest in him at all.

Personally, I would like to see it happen... If it's not a fairy story.

We did put a bid in and it is alleged that we ere the lad's preferred destination among the existing suitors. We should know by the end of the day how serious we were. Either we match/gazump Saints or we get off the proverbial pot and move on.

I suspect we are more interested in getting a wide player in.

Dike made 14 starts and was substitute 7 times.
He scored 9 goals.
Certainly a tough centre-forward who makes it hard for opponents with his physicality.

Disagree and I am extremely disappointed that Armstrong has not signed for us and sincerely hope that this doesn’t come back to haunt us. More than anything else we need a centre forward who has blistering pace and knows where the net is. This guy seemed to have it in the Championship and Southampton have seemingly got him.
How you can say that he would get more starts with them than us is without any substance given that all we have is Benteke who doesn’t have the pace or work rate that Armstrong has. We have done well in the TM up until now but big failure on this.

 


Bring back Brolin

Spider it's Dike not Dyke. Also, he's unlikely to be ready for the PL immediately.
