Reports saying Andre Wisdom! Marquee must be his Nick name!

Believable0 Unbelievable1

28 Aug 2016 12:10:31
I'd be surprised if he's the only one.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 12:17:22
Surely not, I've not heard anythi good about this boy.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 13:51:01
if he's the marquee signing they'll be a riot, nae offence to the boy but he's no the calibre of player I was thinking more alone the lines of a yaya toure, nasri folk like that well out our price range but man city maybe pay most of there wages just to get them away nearer deadline day. just using man city as an example.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 14:04:49
After watching Janko the other night, i'd be happy with Norman Wisdom!

Agree7 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 14:15:57
Why would there be a riot? I don't think we've actually been promised a marquee signing. Sinclair, Toure and Dembele are all massive improvements on our recent signings. If we add another one or two signings of that level then it will have been a fantastic window.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 14:27:02
It's been mention everywhere that there's going to be one and if there was and it was wisdom would you be happy? could end up without one but I'm also happy with how things are going so far and another couple at that level would be me as well but the boy mentioned wisdom as the marquee signing.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 14:51:48
What is a marquee signing though? Someone we pay 50k a week? Someone who costs 8mil? Someone who is a huge name but getting on a bit? As long as they improve the team I couldn't care less if they are a 'marquee' signing or not.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:14:11
It's unbelievable that any of our supporters should doubt any of B R choices of signings .

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:25:29
Don't get this 'marquee' thing. There is a wage structure within the club and gone are the days of spending £6m+ on a player - even though we have a large bank balance thanks to CL qualification.
Prices are very over-inflated - especially in England and the bottom line must be to simply find better players than we have at present, by replacing players who have left or are too old.
The club have managed to find very good players in the past in various parts of the world (like Nakamura, Moravcik, Larsson, VVD, Wanyama and Ledley etc, etc, etc) that entertain the fans bring success, can also earn the club money and don't cost a fortune.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:29:27
Who fae the club actually said there would be a marquee signing anyway?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:32:40
It's been mentioned everywhere?
By everywhere do you mean social media and the main stream media or fae the club?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 15:50:04
As for the potential signing of Wisdom, I think its pretty clear that one of our right backs is good defensively but doesn't have the legs to get forward any more, while the other has the legs to get forward but doesn't seem to have much else! Wisdom should provide a balance of both. People will look at his recent loans but look at Sinclair. Similar CV but he looks a cracking signing so far. Wisdom could be the same.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 15:57:34
The harsh reality is with money in for out going players we have spent about 1.5 million we are screaming out for an experienced midfielder that can set the tempo of a game and dominate and BR must see this? Bitton slows us down it would amaze me if we are not looking for someone in that department of our team.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 16:19:38
First time poster long time viewer of the page, just want to say that from what I've seen of Wisdom he's always looked the part to me, think he could turn out to be a good addition to the squad if he's brought in, far better player than Paterson from the Hearts.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 16:23:31
I am not bothered if he or they are well known or on a high wage or not as long as he they do the business for us to say the truth.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 16:31:58
People asking for an experienced midfielder who can set the pace of the game, it's simple we have him, rogic! Minus the experience but he's done well for us every game so far, still reckon a full back and a centre forward required imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 23:31:21
Cristian Gamboa from West Brom is the latest right back to be linked. Costa Rican international who is lightening quick but has struggled to get a game for West Brom. 1 year left on his contract so probably available for around £1-2 million.

Believable8 Unbelievable5

28 Aug 2016 00:25:57
Callum Paterson is the man for me to solve our RB position. And as for a creative midfielder, I'd break the bank for Robert snodgrass.

Agree5 Disagree5

28 Aug 2016 00:25:57
Nice price but wait not good enough for West Bromwich but good enough for celtic in champs league.
We should pass and go bigger. Maybe as a squad player but realistically, he's not getting his game at West Bromwich nor has hever so he'd have to prove himself and learn how we play and we have that with janko. Just go and get florian klein (stuttgart) only one year left, gets his game for club and country (austria) and had a good euros.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 10:23:16
Snodgrass has had real injury problems and I heard he had to go off again in yesterdays match against Man Utd?

{Ed001's Note - it was wet and slippy and he slammed into the post trying to get on the end of a cross. Probably only bad bruising knocking the wind out of him, though a broken rib or two at worst. Nothing to weaken his legs, so it won't affect the longevity of his career.}

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 21:39:04
Ronald Koeman said tonight McCarthy needs a groin operation and will not be leaving in this window. 🙁🍀 who now for us?

Believable4 Unbelievable1

27 Aug 2016 23:00:26
Yeah just reading it and its a quote. doesn't look like itll happen then. Also if his injury is bad enough that it needs an op, fk that, wouldn't touch him now.

Shame tho, would have done the job.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 00:03:01
Good stuff, he is not what we need. We need a creative midfielder and Joe Hart on loan.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 00:29:48
Cmac71 if u are actually blind I apologise but have u not heard or seen Rogic? We need a CDM hopefully one similar to what big vic brought! We have more CAM than the rest of the league combined!

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 09:14:23
Rogic is playing very well but the lads nae Lubo.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 10:39:47
Griffiths is playing really well but he's no king of kings!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 12:07:33
Agree with SOSBHOY rogic is looking a player now and another cdm should be prioritised first.
I have nothing against biton but him and broony don't go together.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 21:35:18
Keoman says JMcC going nowhere and he may need a groin op?

Believable1 Unbelievable1

27 Aug 2016 21:23:15
JMcC groin injury ? I hope he isn't the marque signing, he is a good player but what pees me rite off is we couldve had him for £500,000 and PL said no.
Over to you Skinnybhoy.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

27 Aug 2016 21:43:08
BRFA from what I was told weeks ago marquee signing was arranged. McCarthy has come about only in recent week due to fall out with Koeman so I seriously doubt he is the marquee. I am expecting another.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 22:16:19
Skinnybhoy, I lap your posts right up! Genuinely excited for this last week of the window.

Let's be honest we bash DD and PL (and quite rightly so) but think they deserve a bit of credit for not only bringing in BR but also backing him.

Exciting times.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 22:21:59
Skinnybhoy, hav u been told who it is but can't share it? Or just that its a marquee.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 22:35:01
Was Nasri not supposed to be the "marquee" type signing? The CL draw may have put paid to that.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Aug 2016 22:56:09
Sorry Wylie just been told that it was marquee no names were given sorry mate I'm as excited as everyone else. All I wa told was that very big player was coming if we qualified for champions league. Not for the money but to win trophies.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Aug 2016 23:17:23
Craigie

Give me strength.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 23:40:02
NiallH - wasn't aware I said anything ridiculous?

Think it's fair to say that the board have pushed the boat out with BR and they are backing him with pennies.

3 maybe 4 years too late but you can't say that it isn't good to be a Tim right now.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Aug 2016 00:14:50
Craigie u lap SB posts right up! Haha! Was that a joke?
And the board have pushed the boat out! Explain why?
We've spent about 4.5 million in total! With the money from johannsen and scepovic we're lucky if it works out at 1.5 million we've actually spent! Yes we're paying bigger wages, but I wouldn't call it pushing the boat out! Nowhere near it! We'll see how we are after the transfer window shuts before I decide if we've really backed Brendan!

Agree5 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 01:03:41
wiss81 i tend to agree with you there. over to you PL.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 07:01:41
Who cares about prices of players. How may players did deila bring in and what prices where paid. I could care if it was a team of freebies as long as the gel together and perform. Also get results. How much was Leicesters team last year and look how will they performed . rant over.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 07:54:07
Craigie

It was you comment about SB. I will say it again for anyone interested but the guy hasn't mentioned 1 name that hasn't already been mentioned. I have no idea how he has achieved hero status on here with some.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 10:29:58
skinnybhoy

your last post makes absolutely no sense whatsoever

you said …the marquee player is contingent on cfc qualifying for the champions league BECAUSE this player wants to win trophies…. he could win plenty of trophies (I assume its a "he" noting that there are some decent women footballers out there! ) …back to my point…he could win many/ many/ many trophies whether or not we qualify for the champions league (the competition with more non-champions in it than champions) ….

unless CFC were going to scrap the wage structure with the CL readies …. which I doubt very much.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 10:35:46
Agree Niall!

In fairness only time on this site has anyone came close to predicting anything was ed with Rodgers

Hope this board don't let us down with a standard squad player signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 13:38:14
Think bhoys some of us need to lower our expectations regarding "marquee" player coming in.

First it was schweinstiger, then ballotelli now nasri!
All these players are out our reach and regardless of CL qualification the wage structure won't be broken and with some of the names mentioned it would have to be significantly.
The only thing CL will do is free up some coin for transfer fees but again don't expect all of the 25m - 30m to go in because it wont.
Realistically i would say 15% of that will be invested into the squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 13:54:45
no not the leicester comparisons again I hate them lol . they done well and it was a big up you to the so called bigger teams but its once in a lifetime stuff lol.

NiallH and Wiss81air point.

I just get easily excited at the talk of a marquee signing!

HH.

Skinnybhoy your getting it tight man!

I see JMcC didn't feature for everton today - not even on the bench.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

27 Aug 2016 19:30:44
I thought that's been the case since pre season?

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 19:44:52
That's because he is in Glasgow.

Agree3 Disagree3

27 Aug 2016 19:57:55
Someone on another forum saw him in Mount florida and asked him if he signing his answer was hopefully. He has a hamstring injury at the moment and is going for a scan.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 20:03:03
i seen a picture of him with a fan in mount florida today. was asked if he was signing for celtic he replied i hope so.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 21:03:12
Saw pic. Tough to argue with that.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 21:31:13
Twitter again? Pretty certain he will be in Liverpool for a scan tomorrow. Haven't saw this photo but sounds made up.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 21:44:48
I say it again to those who doubted him. Skinny called it early doors.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 23:16:30
Pedro what planet are you on?

Skinny called Steggsy10 a liar a few weeks back for telling us all about McCarthy. Look at his profile and you will see the post and Skinny acting the big man.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Aug 2016 10:31:22
skinny knows donkey hee/ haw ….

27 Aug 2016 16:57:40
Any news on this "imminent" player we're all still waiting to find out about? Imagine he would be at the game today maybe medical tomorrow or Monday otherwise it is hardly imminent?

Believable2 Unbelievable2

27 Aug 2016 16:23:01
An offer has been made to Everton to take James McCarthy on loan.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

27 Aug 2016 17:13:09
Loan player is not what we need. We are expecting a couple of good quality perminent signings.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 17:59:36
correct me if i am wrong, but is McCarthys contract not up next season, if we take him on loan come jan he can sign a pre contract with us. so we will receive him for a loan fee this season then nothing next season. a couple of seasons with us and no doubt he will go back to the EPL for a decent amount considering he is only 25.

fantastic piece of business if we can get it through.

{Ed007's Note - McCarthy signed a new five year deal last season taking him up to 2020.}

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 18:10:01
Why do we do this time and time again? Bank a decent cheque and then scrimp in the bargain bucket with either cheap crap or loans?

McCarthy would be a good signing but what is the point in a years loan when we won't be able to afford him at the end anyway? Makes no sense.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Aug 2016 18:24:26
oh well.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 20:09:50
Niall i would imagine if its a loan there would be a fee set for option to buy.

I wouldn't stress about the loan rumours there's nothing concrete to confirm this it could still be outright buy mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 20:36:57
Think there will be am option to buy and if not we've got a very good player for the next year like wee paddy and it still frees up cash for a permanent signing calm doon bhoys.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 20:58:38
Tick

That's not what bothers me. We will spend the rest of the time until Wednesday night trying to tie this deal up and we won't spend another penny.

I just thought for once we would spend a bit of the money we are about to make on a few decent signings.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 14:00:10

Good looking sqaud. Would still like to see the Ajer kid get a go in DCM tho and Dembele getting more air time.

Agree3 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 14:14:13
Let's see what this keeper can do, easy to say br rates him, I hope Aberdeen test him.
Glad to see sviatchencko back.
Surely games like today is were janko should be learning his trade and getting experience instead of giving bombs care in important matches.
Mixed feelings on mcgregor but if he is what I believe to be which is groomed as holding mid. The bench against Aberdeen is good for him to watch were he should be instead were he does be.
Should development not start to be getting game time at this stage.
Grif may start to need a rest.
Love Roberts and sinclair and his attitude.
Quite happy with the rest.
Should win.
Great squad.
Commons. ahhhhhhhhhhh

Oh by the way I'm never happy if you haven't noticed always will look for improvement, because we can always improve.

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 14:17:39
Dembele will get more starts once the easier games start coming up. We'll go 3 5 2 against a lot of domestic sides I think.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2016 14:25:28
I hope Aberdeen don't test the keeper.
