Could the Nasri deal be off after fitness concerns?




10 Nov 2018 06:28:32
Nasri wants £96k a week, what will Rice think if this goes through, I mean, Rice along with Arnie are the first names on the team sheet every week, they've got to get their priorities right and sort the kids contract out.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 08:42:15
Stevie, I agree entirely, I hope we learned our lesson when we bought a burnt out Hernandez at 29 years old, who was past his sell buy date and a payday of £140k weekly, who got a brown envelope for that deal? To get involved with such a player with clear problems as Nasti asking for £96k a week would be madness and smack of desperation for me, what message would that send to other players on less money such as Rice as you say? We are great at providing pensions for a number players who either through age are past their sell by date or are not wanted wanted by other Premiership clubs! I don’t think age should be a barrier in certain cases, but they should certainly not exceed other club players that play in the first team, that is offensive imo!
Whorya, yes along the same lines as you with non playing players👎COYI today, keep up last weeks performance and hopefully a big 3 points in the bag, hopefully Our 3 Muskerteers, Arnie, Diangana and Anderson, can play another big part today, loving Diangana, what a budding star👍⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Where is Toure going, he's passed a medical in London but he's agent says it's not West Ham?


1.) 29 Aug 2018 09:24:46

2.) 29 Aug 2018 12:48:58
Arsenal are odds on favourites.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 20:47:19
He's passed a medical in London but he ain't joining a London club he's joining OLYMPIAKOS but just had his medical in LONDON it's 100% not us . COYI.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 07:38:38
Don’t think it matters where he’s going does it? As long as he tells everybody when his birthday is and they buy him a cake or he will be sulking😂😂😂😂 Think he could still have a lot to offer, especially with our shaky defence, but he is knocking on a. bit, prefer our “Ginge” rejoining👍😄⚒⚒.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 10:23:16
Did anyone watch quinas goal.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 15:30:47
I did Noel - absolute screamer.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 17:33:58
Quina’s Goal was class by any standard👍👍 not sure what the rest of his performance was like but what a debut goal that was😂👍 Let’s see some of our new recruits do similar!

8.) 01 Sep 2018 17:01:07
Dear oh dear played 4 lost 4 not looking good at all looks like its gona be a long hard season for us.

9.) 01 Sep 2018 19:15:38
Anderson looks nothing like a £40m player. Fab, Diop, Arnie, Wilshire look good. The rest are very average.

10.) 02 Sep 2018 13:19:11
Agree markwhu anderson looked unintrested half the team showing no passion mate we are so weak its untrue pellegrines tactics won't work in prem.

11.) 03 Sep 2018 01:24:00
Of course he isn’t, he cost nothing like that previously and sat on the bench - he is good but not 40 million good.



14 Aug 2018 15:08:19
What is happening with Martinez, he's gone out on a season loan, but he's only got a year left on his contract?


1.) 15 Aug 2018 10:45:26
He’s just not good enough he will be released IRONMIKE.



09 Aug 2018 17:47:18
Quina to Watford?


1.) 09 Aug 2018 18:25:34
We need to out a lot of fringe people, cannot be avoided. IRONMIKE.

It's pretty obvious that we've got money to spend on wages by offering Nasri £80k a week, surely we could've used that money to sort out Rice's contract?


1.) 12 Nov 2018 16:25:40
I was waiting for that 9ne to come up. ! IRONMIKE.

2.) 12 Nov 2018 16:36:27
They've got to get their priorities right Mike.

3.) 12 Nov 2018 16:49:01
Maybe Hernandez out 120k wages split 80k Nasri, 40k Rice.

I actually wanted us to get Nasri before he went to Sevilla. He's got a lot of quality on the ball I think he would help us create from deeper. I know people talk about his attitude but I'm sure Pellegrini knows him better than us, the thing that concerns me is his time out and Age maybe the break has done him some good and he comes back fighting who knows. Any thoughts?

4.) 12 Nov 2018 16:57:28
I agree with the negative comments around Nasri, as he does present some degree of risk. BUT, i don't think it is as bad a deal as people make out. We clearly need technical players in the team ATM, ideally with PL experience, and if accounts are correct that Antonio and Hernandez may well be out then Nasri on a short term basis may work. I for one would rather have Nasri coming on after 60 mins than Antonio, he will bring a degree of composure and a final ball that Antonio lacks. Get £10m for Antonio and we have a net profit of £5m (plus a better player IMO) which can go towards a second striker such as Barbosa (or someone else) if Hernadez does go, so that's a win win.
Come summer we can say goodbye and conduct the second big stage of re-structuring. Nasri has BOTH experience in the PL and a previous relationship with MP, which suggests he is LESS OF A GAMBLE than paying a big sum for someone else who may not have PL experience and MP will have to learn about. Nasri may also have something to prove, and choosing a short term deal with a manager he knows and has positive memories of working with may prove this. If he fails with us under MP then his career is over, whereas he could maybe get a 3 year deal elsewhere on £50k with a signing on fee.
We CANNOT spend huge money buying another wide player on a long contract, as we have Lanzini and Yarmo to come back which would leave us over-stocked here. So a deal like this with Nasri makes complete sense, he will have time with the squad to get fit before Xmas, so he will be settled and in sync with the squad come Jan 1st. It represents an upgrade on Antonio for the second half of the season, a profit, AND we can walk away come summer if we wanted to.
Were we offering a 3 year deal my feelings may be different.

5.) 12 Nov 2018 17:08:21
Looks like the deal starting from January for Nasri is on the way to being done? Hope your right Iron. Al👍👍
No doubting previous quality, but can only rely on Pelligrini’s judgement, now get Rice sorted as you say!
We’ve not been short of deals since Pelle’s been In charge that’s for sure🤣🤣 let's hope he gets some off the books as well in January 👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 22:09:14
The Sun is suggesting it may fall over due to the state of his fitness - I would prefer it fell over tbh.

7.) 12 Nov 2018 23:39:22
I really don't get this one at all and I think it's got us written all over it I tell you what we will give a SHORT yes SHORT term deal for a player that hasn't played for 18 months now I don't care if he's been keeping fit in the gym which I don't doubt for one minute because he's never ever Been over weight or out of condition ( take note Antonio) but it's going to take 4-6 weeks to get up to pack of he premiership then he WILL think he's a certain starter which he WONT and another thing is we have LANZINI back soon unless we don't know something about a relapse in his recovery Mike might fill us in on that subject but a short term deal of £80,000 a week for him to be on the bench and causing havoc which he's week renowned for not saying he will but come on really this stinks of a bad deal IMO hope he proves me wrong but why oh hey do we have to entertain these has been who I might be doing us a disservice by saying he can't have ambitions anymore and is only looking for yes you got it a redundancy pay off but why use us for it we don't owe him kcuf lla and I'd be over he moon if it doesn't happen . COYI.

8.) 13 Nov 2018 09:28:51
I think it’s dead in the water.



10 Nov 2018 17:28:37
We are so frustrating, we have to beat teams like this.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 17:36:53
Totally agree very scrappy game and back to giving away too many balls again. Forwards got to take their chances as well.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 18:03:54
I always think 1 point away from home is good, as long as we win the so called easier games at home, no easy games to be honest in the Premiership, it’s a real dog fight for the lesser teams, but I feel we are a lot better than quite a few teams, so I don’t honestly foresee any relegation worries, but it’s nice to get the points in the bag sooner rather than later, we’ve done enough looking over our shoulder and relying on other teams losing getting towards the end of the season.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 20:53:31
Like we all agree on Chelmsford we seem to perform so much better against better teams and teams like Huddersfield we seem to sort of struggle and lack professionalism but we were the better team today it ain't good enough with a draw and we have to learn to beat these teams I truly believe we think we are entitled to just turn up and win I am probably wrong but can't help my views Chelmsford what do you think on this matter mate and hope your good and family is well mate. COYI.

4.) 10 Nov 2018 21:46:52
I watched Huddersfield v Fulham and while Fulham were dire Huddersfield worked, scrapped and pressured high up the field. They are a bit better than their league position presently and will scrape out points against some better teams than us.

5.) 11 Nov 2018 13:49:49
Whorya, it seems always the WH way to lose our way a lot against the so called lesser teams, maybe they try harder for our scalp, i really don’t know mate? Awful ball from Diop that helped them to the goal, putting 3 players under unnecessary pressure, get the ball in the opponents half! Thought Snoddy did great for the cross for Anderson to eventually score a good goal, think Snoddy is really trying hard to impress, love his work rate👍Can’t understand the Nasri thing, hope we steer clear, think he could be trouble?
Juan Mata may be available, I would be more than happy with him short term, providing we don’t do stupid wages to upset others? All well in Chelmsford as hope your family are? 👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 13:54:57
Good shout for Mata I think he will go home to Spain to finish his career and please please no to nasri he will ruin our team he's a control freak and not needed all good here mate. COYI.



04 Nov 2018 13:48:44
Joao Felix is apparently going to be offered a new contract with a £105m get out clause, if he's turning out to be that good then we should've signed him when we had the chance, just imagine him, Diangana and Silva, it would be frightening.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 14:46:42
Would he have developed in the same way? If but maybe:)



03 Nov 2018 07:18:48
Hi chaps, just been looking at our fixtures up until Xmas, how many points can you see us getting?
Burnley home,
Huddersfield away,
Man City home,
Newcastle away,
Cardiff home,
Palace home,
Fulham away,
Watford home,
Southampton away,
Burnley away,
Brighton home, (2nd Jan)
Surely got to make the most of those run of fixtures, as we know we need roughly 20 to 25 points by Xmas to have a chance of staying up, what do you think chaps, how many points from these fixtures can we get?


1.) 03 Nov 2018 07:55:20
Stevie, over the years I have seen how like a number of teams, it is all pretty much unpredictable with our team, one week hot another, cold, being the most consistent unfortunately, also injuries, however I have just run through the games and I reckon and hope, 18 points realistically shouldn’t be to high an expectation from those games! ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 09:36:23
I made it 17. We’ve had a tough start and played some big teams early season. The next run of matches looks very good for accumulating a decent point tally.

It all depends on Arnie’s fitness, though, as we still seem pretty toothless without him. The return of Carroll after the international break will give Pelle more options, as will a fit Wilshere.

I also feel that left back must be Jan priority. Masuaku can’t defend and Cresswell’s development has gone backwards.



28 Oct 2018 15:08:21
Well, what a day yesterday, our thoughts are with everyone at Leicester after the terrible events involving the helicopter, also like to wish Glen Hoddle a speedy recovery.

Get rid of Carroll and give Rice Carrolls wages, and the captains armband, job done.

I see his name linked to us a few days ago Mike on another site, didn’t think much of it as I thought it was just gossip, good player, fingers crossed, let’s see what happens.

Think it will be the end of Carroll if we signed Dzeko as they've both got similar playing styles, (a target man with no pace and good in the air), just can't see how we could accommodate both of them.

Hi chaps, Man Utd are sniffing round him as well, what annoys me is its teams like West Ham that buy these relatively unknown players then turn them into world class players for the so called big teams to snatch them off of us, why don't the so called big teams buy them in the first place, the league is all ways going to look the same with the smaller teams bringing these players through for the likes of Utd,

Thanks chaps, it looks like we need to add an out ‘n’ out striker and a bit more pace, the two centre backs are forming a good partnership, we’ve got a good keeper, left back is an issue, and Zabaleta can’t go on forever, so a tweek here and there in January should give us a better second half of the season, hopefully.

I agree Mike, I don't know what sort of budget we'll have in January as we've just spent £100m so do you think Defoe until the end of the season could do a job, he knows the prem inside out so wouldn't really need a bedding in period like a foreign import might, it just depends on the budget, not unless they are going to go for loans.?
