I see that McEachran is on his way to Brentford for £750k. Shame he never made the grade with us after a promising start, but just like Kakuta it appears the right attitude and application wasn't...

The more attractive football played that season was in the first few months when Di Matteo was still in charge. That was when people were waxing lyrical about 'the three amigos'. it wasn't after Rafa...

Experienced striker - fair enough although there's plenty of those around.

As for having played in the Premier League Falcao may have done so but he didn't show any signs that he could adapt to it...

They both scored a meagre 4 goals in 26 PL appearances, although Falcao spent considerably more minutes on the pitch. So are you saying that you'd be happy with a similar contribution this season?...

The bit in bold I wouldn't have so much issue with if we'd just signed a credible 3rd striker, but as it is we've brought in someone that not only looks a shadow of the player he was due to his...

I know that, but I'm not convinced loaning players out repeatedly is necessarily the best way to go. We're not exactly going to be loaning him to a big rival like United or City, so at best it would...

Agreed. I hope we don't see a repeat of the Torres / Ba situation where Torres always seemed to be favoured over Ba even when doing nothing to warrant it.

The thing is if, as you say, it's not the end of the world if Falcao doesn't score any more goals than Drogba managed last season, then why not just give Bamford the opportunity now of being part of...

It's a crap signing but as it's been on the cards for ages I was resigned to it weeks ago. Says it all really when the prospect of signing Begovic as a back-up keeper seems like more of a coup than...

Seeing that Stoke seem to have had a £12m bid accepted for Shaqiri, would he not be worth a punt for us? Especially if we can offload Salah and/or Cuadrado?

He only joined in January though, and made 20 appearances overall (15 in the league), so looks like he was playing regularly for them. Maybe he just hasn't adjusted well to life in Italy?

Why are Inter seemingly prepared to offload Shaqiri so soon? Was he not very good for them?

Yep, this. It certainly wasn't on ability or form. Two great keepers, it just made sense to keep the one that has a lot longer ahead of him.

I don't understand any bitterness about Mata either. That's not to say I'd want him back though, he was a great player for us in his time here but is in our past now. It's hard to argue with the sale...

Indeed. Begovic would be the perfect signing, but he'd need to be convinced that he could fight for Courtois' place in the team, and wouldn't be merely a bench-warmer.

Just a thought…. do you think we should try to take one of Arsenal's keepers as part of the Cech deal, if it goes through? We're going to need another back-up for Courtois anyway, and I'd favour one...

Agreed. For those of us that owned shares in the club itself we were paid for them back in 2003, so it should be no different if he wants what the CPO have.
