It does seem I have opened a can of worms mentioning Ward-Prowse though. He is mockingly mentioned now in nearly every thread.
I would love it if he signed now. Straight swap for Gini.
I hate you guys.

i know Mascott and PTT and a few others are litterally gagging to get Gini replaced, but i'm not sure its as easy as just swapping him out, Soton are likely to want coin as well....then you have the small problem of convincing Gini to replace a south coast club legend....

I see the Sandro Tonali links have surfaced again, as they did last January at this time. I didn't quite understand the rumours then and I don't now, either. The owner of Brescia has a notorious reputation for being a bit of a madman, and over dramatizing to create interest in his players. Evidently he has been telling the press that both Juve and Liverpool "have called" about Tonali.

In October he was claiming Man City called. This is an actual quote....

Brescia President Massimo Cellino claims Sandro Tonali “is worth €300m” and he already received offers from “all the big Italians, Atletico Madrid, PSG and Man City.” The midfielder is only 19 years old, but has made his senior Italy debut and impressed in his maiden Serie A season. “His talent is clear for all to see, but the truly special thing about Sandro is his smile. He loves to play football and the rest is of no real interest to him,” Cellino told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “There is always the risk with young players that sudden fame can create problems, but he is doing so well. I believe he can become even better, as I’ve never had such a good player in my squad. “Tonali sacrifices himself so much for the team with his defensive work, but if he were to move to a more advanced role, he’d score more goals. You’ll see, he’s got a great shot. Naturally, the transfer speculation around ‘the new Andrea Pirlo’ had already begun when he was in Serie B last season.

He looks a bit like Kylo Ren in the twitter thread, and for that reason alone, i'm happy for us to sign him. (though it does have the rumblings of Brescia trying to cash in on their prospect for the maximum amount.)

I mostly myself like to read once I got time the articels About LFC on echo BUT i read today this and made me wonder why such an articel is supposed to be published?
Well let me start like this:
Mohamed Zidan was a attacker at Mainz05 under the Klopp era then he came for a short spell at Dortmund as well.
He had a natural instict for scoring Goals for his cappacity as a Player.
Now with his mind really gone Zidan proclaims Klopp have being telling him( on 2012-2013 that he was 100 better as Mo!!!)
Mo was never ever considered at that Point in time a world class Player such as HE IS NOW or at least since he joined us!
I could even remeber someone in the media her or in Germany lost a word About our Mo at that given time.
It doesn t get in my head why People create such shit stories really! On a personal note would like to see Zidan somewhere near in Dortmund and slape one in his face

Video from Sky Sports News this afternoon, Ancelotti was asked if there is any truth to Emre Can signing and he played coy. Simply saying he “won’t comment on any names” but adding “Sky is wrong”. :)

My reasoning is that the likes of Metro and Daily Star write utter garbage and while they are not banned here, I perceive them as papers which insult readers' intelligence by inventing transfer links to get mouse clicks. There are plenty of other sources which are deemed unreliable but sometimes get things right (The Mirror, Daily Mail, Bild, Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, L'Equipe, France Football, to name a few). You too often see people flipping out because of false Metro reports, let's try to prevent that. :)
Nicola, I have two questions for you, which you can answer through my In Box or here.

1. How many Administrators and Moderators have TIA Forum and if possible, their names.
2. I want to put an avatar from my computer and don't see any options for that. Can you please instruct? Thanks.

WOW! All of them are admins? I didn't know that. Thank you.
Yes, there's quite an assortment of administrators but that's better than being wafer thin, and I think one of them is actually from Lincoln. Whilst that's a lot to digestI've always thought it's quite nice to hobnob with them. It's not like I give a fig - roll with it I say.

Thanks. I did upload avatar, clicked on Save, but still nothing happened.
When I click on my username, up there, it shows the new avatar, but in the forum is still that "G". What is the reason for that?
