don't .............

.......... get too carried away with our transfers into the club, we have a very tight budget. we are aiming for stability, not for the top, however we will again push on.

Whoever we sign, we can be sure that Bielsa will know them inside-out before we do the deal.

If they are what he wants then all is good.

We're linked to this kid now: Elif Elmas.

He actually looks a player. Press saying he's one of the
ones to watch at the Euros. Which means, he'll have a
great tournament. I'll get carried away. And it'll turn out
to be just another press rumour. Oh well. I keep falling
for it.

My Mrs is Turkish, our great niece is called Elif.

I think its Eljif Elmas. For context he has been a bit-player for Napoli this season. A lot of games played, but not so many minutes as you'd expect. Plays 10. Not sure how much he would cost, but imagine it would be an expensive-ish signing.

Bit of a risk.

Someone already said it: whoever we get,
MB'll turn them into world beaters in one summer.

Wiki has his name as Elif, he is of Turkish descent, I am not saying his first name isn't Eljif but it makes a lot more sense for him to be called Elif, that is a Turkish name but Eljif isn't, some Turkish names are used for both genders (though my wife has never heard of a man being called Elif), additionally, whilst "J" is used in Turkish, it is mostly for words borrowed from other languages, Jambon - Ham, Jilet - Razor, Japon - Japan. My wife's name translates as Dark Warrior, you don't mess with her.

Anyone watching Wales vs Switzerland?

Breel Embolo. Damn. Lad's a force. Hope Victor's
watching him. Fabulous player.

It was very interesting listening to the phil hay show a couple of weeks ago.

Basically they have said they have such a great scout network now that they would consider it a failure on their part if someone they didn't know about had a great world Cup.

It’s hard not to go Champ Man sometimes and start pulling the side apart for potentially better players

It’s clear we need a few, but not much. Ayling tired after an excellent season but Dramah looks to be his long termer. You have Greenwood and Gelhart in attack too, so in some aspects, the club may be improved squad wise from within next season

On top of that you have the 27m man Rodrigo who after settling and injuries looked great towards the end of the season. You also saw improvement in the likes of Roberts. Then there is Llorente/Koch who will hopefully be free of injury

I’d be happy with Harrison, a left back and a winger. However the ultimate has to be a number 10 which we were crying out for last season.

We potentially need a quality midfielder but in Dallas/Klich I think Bielsa will stay as we are
