Quite a signing, but not sure Mourinho has the interpersonal skills to make it work as Eva Carneiro will testify.

In my NFL whatsapp group the americans, especially women, are really excited about this. They don't follow real football at all but they were chatting about spurs and, strangely, Harry Kane due to this. Womens football seems pretty good for marketing yourself across the pond and you don't even need to splash out on a Pulisic.

personally, on balance, I’d keep him unless we find someone willing to take him on and cover all his salary and we can get a replacement for c. The amount we receive. 

Completely different situation to that of Hodet and lemina who are compete bellends... boufal is a pretty decent lad and a liked member of the squad. 

I agree with this, and as Stevy points out he was unlucky with injuries last season. Also I don't think 'not a bit part role' means starting every game, but more not 'only considered when we're desperate'.  i don't think he's fit for today, is he? Which would rather illustrate the problem.

You’re in an NFL WhatsApp group and you had the cheek to say I was boring the other day

NFL is a surprisingly fun sport if you give it a go. Not a coincidence that the superbowl is one of the most watched sporting events in the world.

I have given it a go but after 2hours I gave up . The games need to be reduced to action on the field . In USA people seem to have it on as background !

So the only recent links have been Choudhury (would surely cost too much yo be worth it) and the Russian lad (available on a free).

Imagine we will see some strong linka shortly as we are in dire need of another midfielder - cannot be in a PL season with two CMs (three with Smallbone).

Think we would look to replace Boufal (if he goes?) or do you think Ralph sees Tella as doing that?

Going to be tricky to find the money to afford 2 players.

RLC would be a very, very good signing. He was instrumental at Palace, but a poor spell of injuries has seen his career stall quite heavily. If we can get him on a similar loan to buy deal as Bertrand then I would be more than happy with him. Much better than Choudhury, I think he would bring the same class as Ings and Bertrand have from the bigger PL sides.

Lets get a team of double barrelled surnames.

The issues with RLC:

1. He is always injured

2. We wouldn't be able to sign him permanently if he did well so its against the ethos of the club

3. He isnt a 'no6'

4. He is always injured

Agree with this. Even if he is fit right now, how long for him to get up to speed with Ralph’s style of play to become effective? Can’t see it at all.

1. Fair point but I expect most of us said/felt the same about Ings. I can admit I thought the Ings deal was a poor one when it first happened.

 

2. You are right it would be quite unlikely but not impossible. The Chelsea midfield is stacked so crazier things have happened. If he only stays for a year but does well while we develop the likes of Jankewitz into a first team player without relying on him prematurely  then it's a win-win.

 

3. I would suggest he's quite versatile and if Ralph feels he has attributes that could work in his system it could work. Ralph shifted Armstrong's position/role and he's come on leaps and bounds.

 

4. Yhep, you're right his injury record is a real minus. If he didn't have it we wouldn't even be able to consider signing him. A 24 year old England international at a top four club on £120,000 a week. No chance.

 

I can see why others would not agree but I would be excited if this came to fruition!

Get him in if we can - he’s struggled with injuries but also hard if you can’t get regular game time, to get back up to fitness before your next injury. Great player, and 100% exactly the type of player we’re crying out for. Physical, quick, but has the skill to burst past a few players when we’re struggling to break a stubborn defence down.

He is also on over £120k a week, so no chance of us signing him, even on loan I wouldnt have thought.

From RH comments in the above it made me think about Kuzyaev. Sure we will see some links emerge this week about a few...
