    Because thats what the press do. They have to put our stories every hour so they ramp up the bullshit for hits.

    It's fairly obvious that it's his agent looking for a new deal from Madrid as his stock is at its highest point of his young career. The agent is feeding the press stories in the hope pressure is built on the club to either take him back (unlikely) or pay him more money on a longer deal.

    It's not new and I find it amusing that fans get bent out of shape over nothing.

    First team signings in the Summer:
    Cutrone: No links until we'd bid for him
    Vallejo: No links until he'd signed
    Neto/Jordao: No links until they signed.
    Countless links to players we didn't sign.

    With the odd exception of Percy you can pretty much ignore anything you read in the press. Some is agent driven, the majority just made up. I can guarantee you this far out in particular it's bobbins.

    We're clearly setting up a swap deal with Odegaard

    Calciomercato is incredibly unreliable. If Madrid want to give us the asking price then maybe. But they aren’t going to spend £100m on Neves.

    According to the mirror, Arsenal want willy Boly and should be able to get him for £20m...

    How people write that shit and put it in a national newspaper, I’ll never know....

    Feigning concern, a Labour pastime, makes you feel doubtful right from the start. The expression he pulls is exactly like last time, got to assume he just hasn't a brain!

    Hahahaha. Oww my sides. £20m wouldn’t even get one of Boly’s boots.

    Boly is going nowhere unless it is for more than United paid for Maguire. Not our fault that club inflated the market.

    Daft question,but here we go,how do the bigger clubs miss players like boly,neves,jota is it just that their scouts don't rate them and we think he'll be worth a try or what? I know uncle Jorge has a bit to do with it but we haven't bought all our players off him
    See post #5516 of ex wolf watch to find out why in my house,i hate Kenny Miller

    I'd be more worried about Nuno leaving tbh, particularly if the Spurs job becomes available.

    Opinions from scouts and managers were the main way of players signed. These days it's much more data driven and what they do with the data is often the reason for players to be signed. If you can get players that fit your data profile you have more chance of signing them.

    A lot of players are missed because people interpret data to fit their their own agenda. The other thing with data is that it doesn't consider squad players very well or those at youth level in comparison to senior level.

    But it all boils down to opinion in the end.

    Aside from the Mendes link Boly wasn't first choice under Nuno at Porto and was already in his mid 20s when we signed him.
    Jota was an inexperienced reserve at Atletico. Realistically they wouldn't have been of interest to the established Top 6.

    Neves everyone knew about, but thought the price was ott versus the experience.

    I call Jotvla a squad player rather than reserve. He'd played quite a few CL games by then.

    I would have thought that was a fairly obvious conclusion to come to. Helpful to know the club think the same way as the fans on the winter recruitment, assuming that Tim has got a nod from within Molineux.

    Tobias Eisenhuth, apparently. Plus, it's HITC so it's pretty much a done deal.

    Another story this morning - quite possibly old news re-hashed - linking us with Franck Kessie https://www.calciomercato.com/en/new...-conside-10006

    While still a big club in terms of their stature Milan aren't really very good now and haven't been for a while.

    We obviously want to be more of a 3-4-3 team and I think that’s the right call. Donk is the only first team midfielder we have who can play alongside Moutinho in that system and he’s been very average this year. So shouldn’t take much to come and start.

    Going back in for Kessie seemed a very possible idea. I would be very chuffed if it were to happen
