  1. Christian Eriksen has agreed in principle to sign for Manchester United - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/62037422. "A three-year contract is being prepared for Eriksen, who is still to have his medical at Old Trafford."
  2. Report on today's game here - https://www.rangers.co.uk/article/rangers-kick-preseason-off-with-thistle-match/29BZPWmP01aTYCsBK3xw81. Our line up was Sneddon, Muirhead, Brownlie, Akinola, Milne, Docherty, Bannigan Turner, Smith, Tiffoney, Graham. McMillan was on the bench with two trialists and five apprentices. Mitchell, Holt, Lawless and Dowds were not in the squad. Cole McKinnon was on the Sevco bench.
  3. He's better than Keane (not difficult) but it looks like Lampard's got no money to spend on transfer fees this summer.
  4. Inter Milan have signed Andre Onana from Ajax on a free - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/africa/62011991. There was a rumour that, before his ban, Chelsea wanted him as a replacement for Kepa. Inter have also signed Henrik Mhkitaryan on a free from Roma.
  5. Crystal Palace have signed Sam Johnstone on a free transfer from West Brom. Another very good piece of business.
  6. Excellent news for Liverpool fans. The new strip is a big improvement on last year's. Simple and classy.
  7. So where does he and Perisic fit into Conte's' preferred 3-4-3 formation? Richarlison could presumably as Kane and Son are automatic starters. Kulusevski impressed after his arrival last season Levy would be crazy to sell Son to Real Madrid if their rumoured interest is "real".
  8. Probably confirmed officially later this afternoon. His new 3 year Sevco deal was announced yesterday.
  9. The away kit's black shorts would look good with home top and socks.
  10. Happy with that but the white shorts look a bit out of place. The away kit's black shorts could look good with it.
  11. Arsenal are not going to let a 27 year old go on a free at this early stage in the window. It's a classic try-on because Bellerin would be able to get a bigger signing-on fee if he was released. He is in the last year of his contract. Arsenal will offer him to other clubs to force Real Betis to cough up some cash.
  12. Southampton have gone Dutch with an Ajax home top.
  13. The top half could be real, the Kingsley bottom is hopefully a wind-up or a promotional joke. Agreed and who would buy it and wear it on match days? It would be a huge commercial risk and O'Neills are very switched on. They did a half home/half away strip last year. It's possible that they are releasing a Kingsley top and that could be a promotional mash-up. I'm still hoping for a return to hoops this year.
  14. Jacobsen fully deserves his spot, but considering QST aren't sending a GC prospect I think it foolish not to pick Cav too. A first week crash could easily bin their whole tour. A similar thought had crossed my mind too. A Covid positive could derail the sprint train. Cav was back to best when winning the British national road title at the weekend. He was aggressive and out-thought his rivals. Lefevre is a stubborn b*****d with a huge ego. Bennett was his number one sprinter last year and he looked embarrassed by Cav's four wins in the Tour. He is not going to risk a repeat this year unless Jacobsen is ill or injured.
  15. Hopefully Jacobsen tests positive too!
  16. Arsenal have lots of players that they need to move on. It's clear that Runnarson, Bellerin, Mari, Maitland Niles, Torreira and Nelson have no future at the club. Arteta also needs to offload dross like Leno, Holding, Tavares, Elneny and Pepe too.
  17. He left weeks ago but took his time to reject the offer of a new deal. Fed up with being played out of position by McCall? It would be a surprise if an other Championship club offered him much more money.
  18. We should get considerably more for Rudden than what we might have to pay the Doonhamers for Fitzpatrick. Rudden was with us far longer, played many more games and was capped at U21 level during that time. Sevco will be due part (20%) of what we get for Zac.
  19. We generally release the away kit first to promote sales. The home kit follows a few weeks later. O'Neills did a good job with retro kits too so there could be more to come. I assume that Jack McMillan is wearing the new training top in this photo on the club website.
  20. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/who-tony-weston-rangers-goal-26422195 "Itten was hooked at half-time in the weekend ‘B’ team clash against Celtic and was substituted again, this time on the hour mark, against the Spiders. And that was all the time his replacement Tony Weston needed to fire a double and take his tally for the season to a staggering 35 goals." "Many took to Twitter and one wrote: “Tony Weston has smashed in 35 goals so far this season for our ‘B’ squad - more than double the next player and 22 more than Juan Alegria. Young lad is on flames.”
  21. It would depend on how much Maguire is valued at in the deal. United will be amortising Maguire's crazy £80m transfer fee over the length of his contract which runs to 2025. To accept a low offer/valuation would result in a big financial hit which they can't afford. It's still hard to believe that Maguire cost more than Van Dijk.
  22. This light show is truly amazing!
  23. The Pet Shop Boys know how to put on a spectacular show. They don't penny pinch to line their own pockets. It's very sad that the technical hitch caused us to miss the band, the dancers and light show earlier. I have put them on my big screen with sound through the hifi. It's truly amazing now!
  24. Technical hitch - that's what screwed up Chris and the band. Well done for being honest and admitting it, Neil. The show did go on!
