Thread: NW flying out to watch a player on Wednesday, start your speculation here!

  1. #1

    NW flying out to watch a player on Wednesday, start your speculation here!

    There's (nearly) a full Ligue 1 programme, 7 games in the Copa del Rey and handful of Coppa Italia games & .... Kilmarnock v Lingston (& other assorted SPL games).

    France, Spain, Italy or Jockland?

    Take your pick. Don't think we've had an Argentinian before! Emiliano Sala at Nantes, same agent as Sol, 28, 6'2", 11 goals this season ... who knows!

    It seems they are going to 3-4 different games - Warnock in France, someone (Blackwell/Jepson?) in Spain, and one other national league too - Italy if Des has listed all the options?

    I wonder if Tan is feeling more encouraged to part with a decent chunk of cash considering our current position.

    He’d be silly to skrimp considering our start to the season and the apparent lack of quality amongst our relegation rivals.

    Good scouting plan, target players that:

    1) Have qualified for the last 32 of the Copa del Rey or made the 4th round of the Copa Italia or
    2) In the French Ligue 1 and
    2) Are playing this Wednesday

    Coming back to the guessing game, Martin Braithwaite on loan from Boro at Bordeaux though if Cornelius has a blinder he could be one for the future!

    Do you think Neil should be flying at his age ?

    His lack of eyebrows streamline his face against wind resistance

    And partaking of the grape down there is no bad idea.

    Can you imagine someone at the club drawing the short straw and having to go and ask Vincent Tan to make transfer funds available to sign him

    Sala scores for FC Nantes again tonight. Was Warnock there to see him?

    They are saying 25 million quid for him.. hard to believe we have that type of money between the cushions. Looks pretty good though.

    We're twinned with Nantes aren't we? We certainly were when we stuffed them in the Cup Winners Cup in 70/71- that should be enough for them to drop their asking price by, say, £20,000,000 for us.

    £25M really? €15M more like it and a massive tax advantage playing in the UK instead of France. Bear in mind that at the start of the season, the price was €3M. That's basically €1M per goal increase or €2M per goal if you believe the rags.

    Do WoL get all their leads of this board still? Commission please!

    So, 25% of the Premier League clubs are after Sala?

    Personally, I think Etheridge could be showing a bit more effort up front.
