Mail reporting Lovren could be off to Roma.
Didn’t even get on bench on Friday.

Depending on the severity of Allison's injury, we could possibly get Karius back right? Since he's just on loan.

Why bother? We have Adrian and a Youth keeper will do as back up.
There is talk of us asking FA to let us sign the keeper who came to the US with us for 2 months.

Some groundswell of hysteria on the socials in the last hour regarding the severity of Alisson's injury. The club is making an official statement on their website (if they haven't already).

We can't bring him back outside of a transfer window so he's not an option until January [to clarify this is not about the ability to do emergency loans but about what has been agreed with Besiktas]. I certainly hope Alisson's not out until then!

We should be OK with Adrian and Kelleher. If we sign Lonergan it will be a short term deal to cover us should we get another injury in the keeper department while Alisson is out.

Hearing some horrific rumours out Alisson. Arse is twitching in work, here. Checking Twitter every 30 seconds waiting for some (hopefully good) news

This is another point that is making everyone crazy today regarding the signing of Lonergan, related to Ali's injury. @Kopstar would probably know the rules, but bc the club is choosing to sign Lonergan for a year, they are taking that as a bad omen. I have read that the rules stipulate either one month or one year. There is no such thing as 'short term' contract. Again, I don't know that if it true or not.

I may be going a bit 'Football Manger' here but are rolling contracts still a thing? If so I presume we could have signed him up to a 1 month deal & let it roll on to the next month if needed

Makes sense to me but not sure how it works.

Judging by us moving for another keeper would suggest that Alisson might be out for quite a long time. Till end of the season?

It's just the minimum period for which you can sign a player (the time between two consecutive transfer windows) so with the summer one already closed you're looking at until the beginning of the summer transfer window next year.

This is the least reliable thing in this whole thread but... there is an agent on linkedin claiming to manage Connor Randall and trying to get him a move to the MLS but doesn't have any links with the league so is having a hard time of it.

If it true it is remarkable that Randall has allowed his career to be managed by someone that incompetant.

Blimey...I could put him in touch with some people. Who is he?

Jadon Sancho reportedly sign a new contract that brings him to 190k per week. And i would be surprised if there is not a release clause upwards of 200mil pounds. This would probably not be our type of player to buy then, pity I thought he would be a perfect competition/replacement for our forward line. Guess that wouldn't stop the irrational spenders though.

With Sancho i get the feeling that he already knows exactly which english club he wants to join.
'I'll sign the 190k contract and you'll let me leave for 140mil pounds next summer' Something like that.
