Was told Williams was a done deal, it's now a no go. Tino Livramento is a go though, should join within the next few days, very highly rated at Chelsea, be great to get this one over the line.

Fingers crossed on this one. FB cover in both sides…. nice!

20% sell on fee to Chelsea, £25m buy back clause for Chelsea, 5 year contract! Let’s hope we can find a decent backup LB.

Happy with that, apparently he can cover both sides and after what Ralph’s said I think that’s it for full backs now. Apparently two senior and two youth players is enough. He also said he didn’t want/ need any new forwards so that might be it now. For the love if god I hope not. Please get Delaney if we can.

I would still like to see Delaney and Lookman come in although it seems like Lookman may be going to Burnley or Watford. How about going back to Chelsea and trying to get Loftus-Cheek. I think that Ralph could get the best out of him.

5m fee instead of a 2m loan fee for williams absolute no brainer very highly rated one for the future and cover for now.

I heard that they were looking for offers around £10-£12m for Williams.

SaintGGsy - that’s it for transfers? I have that feeling too (hope I’m wrong) . He now has cover at CB and FB with the boys from Chelsea, MC to be covered by Diallo and Armstrong. Forward line looking full too with 4 from; Ings, Adams, Walcott, Redmond, Obefemi, (Armstrong) and Tella. What worries me is that is nearly the same team as last season. A little bit of quality would be nice - especially at GK.

I can only see us buying again if someone leaves - Ings, Vestergaard or JWP.

I wonder if Livramento will start and KWP takes a more forward role.

It seems that way Manny but we often pop up with a deal 3 hours after the deadline. I am fairly happy with the defence now, so much so I think our strongest formation is probably 5-2-3.

Perraud at leftwing back, Bednarek Vestergaard Salisu, KWP on the right - with Livramento, Stephens, Simeu and I wouldn’t mind Djenepo covering as a WING back as much. JWP and Romeu with Diallo back up then we have Djenepo, Adams, Armstrong, Walcott, Redmond, Tella wide, Ings up top - or Adams.

GK still poor but that won’t change, hopefully next season. Midfield is fine but light - I would just love love love Delaney.

Up front the A. Armstrong rumours won’t die, latest is apparently Obafemi +12m which is probably several million high but I think we need a goal scorer as Ings will get injured so we will see.

Apparently TeeJay RLC’S attitude sucks which is why no one has come in for him, similar with Ntcham who is now on a free. Definitely has potential but not paying any good money on another risk after we just got rid of Lemina.

Lookman would be great but shows how far we’ve fallen if Burnley beat us to him. Still need another attacker for certain, hopefully Ralph sees that or maybe a ST has to isolate in late August and so he has to go out and get someone as cover.

I see your point SaintGGsy about not wanting another player with a bad attitude. I just thought that at his age he might now be ready to settle down and let his footballing ability show. I remember watching him play his debut for England and thought he was going to be a top player.

Yeah I wouldn’t mind him, but don’t want to be paying too much money so a loan with an option might be a route to take again.

I’ve seen Joey Veerman of Heerenveen linked with Rangers for between £4m - £8m. Personally think he’d be a great backup for us. I’d like to see us move either Long or Obafemi on and get someone else in, neither of them are Premier League quality. I don’t see why we’d need another CB with Stephens still here and Simeu coming into the club. Think another option on the wing would be nice should Elyounoussi leave. Would love to see us go for Ryan Kent but think he may be a little too pricey. Delaney would be great if we can get him.

Are we still looking for a LB? No3 shirt still unallocated and I read somewhere that Tino has only played on the left once in his career.
