    I've heard of him, but I think that the name's stuck mainly because he's called Attila.

    Weird to think that in 1998, someone wanted to call their baby boy Attila

    Given the current Hungarian leadership, Adolf might be suddenly gaining popularity...

    That would definitely be his nickname if he went to Rangers

    Napoli’s interested in Ndombele now along with Villarreal according to Romano.

    Think Napoli’s on the verge of losing Fabian Ruiz to PSG so that could be good for us.

    Matteo Moretto is saying that us and Villarreal are discussing just a straight loan for Lo Celso, no option or obligation.

    Get tae ****!

    Club policy for such players **** should be loan, with
    obligation to buy if certain trigger conditions are met.


    *** At the end of this season that will be 4 years on
    tbe books, and I assume the club will have fully
    amortised their transfer/wage costs over that period

    Apparently due to La Liga fair play rules, Villarreal can’t include an obligation to buy clause in a loan for Lo Celso

    Tapered down % of wages paid by Spurs as the trigger conditions are met ??
    A fully compliant means of what Spurs desire, can be devised.

    There's also the fact that you could fit the population of Villarreal into our stadium and have 10,000 empty seats, which is why FFP is always going to catch up with Villarreal

    While their European exploits are enough to keep them punching above their weight so they can match or better the league finishes of Sevilla, Sociedad, Betis, Valencia, Bilbao and Celta Vigo, there's no escaping the fact that their 23,500 seat stadium is always going to shackle their finances - and given that seats about half the town, there's little point in expanding their stadium like Atleti, Sevilla, Valencia or Betis have, let alone building a new one like Bilbao

    I'm really sorry Villarreal, you can't afford Lo Celso. However, we do have a cheaper midfielder. I introduce to you, Harry Winks!

    As they clearly want Lo Celso, loan without an obligation works if we have a handshake deal on what they'll pay next summer

    Note I said handshake deal, not gentleman's agreement...

    There's (unsubstantiated) reports saying that, if Barca don't register Andreas Christensen or Franck Kessie by Saturday, due to clauses in their deals they'd become free agents

    Just saying, Christensen would be useful for our HG numbers...

    Also, it had to be built partially into a hillside so that the stadium doesn't spoil the view of the Downs. It is built in an area of outstanding beauty. Lots of planning and extra engineering involved.
