Vermaelen was good 6/7 years ago , but is a crock sadly, 33 games in the last 3 seasons   ---move on I hope

Strap yourselves in lads, its gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride

I have a bad feeling about our striker situation. Really feel we won't make the appropriate signing and will pretty much limit our progression in the table despite all of our other signings.

Was he injured at Roma and Barca, or just out of favour?

Good player, so wouldn't be averse to it. I really think we need to go big in this position to move on from the Jags, Williams era but, if it isn't possible, then fair do Tommy V would be a good addition.

Injured at Roma Last season. then spent basically the whole time on the bench. Started 4 games.

Work permit issues

I suppose it's possible, as he's only just become a full national and wouldn't seem to meet enough of the supplemental criteria (transfer fee, wages, etc) to meet the standard for a work permit. This is likely why there have been thoughts that he'd be loaned back for a year. From what I can tell, UK labour restrictions for Croatia expire on 1 July 2018, meaning that as full EU members there will not be any work permit requirements from that date.

We must be stuck with the other forgotten man, McCarthy. I was not looking forward to the next international break after this coming one, and watch O'Neill picking McCarthy for Eire even though he will not have played since 2016/2017. I think he did play a few games last season? At least we have a reliable replacement for Gibson.

I also like Vermaerlon and would be happy if we took a punt on him despite his injury woes.

Nah sick of players spending more time injured than playing for us. Besic has only just come back, we don't need to replace him with another player who's always injured. Plus he's actually injured right now.

Great player in his day, but he might as well retire now.

Honestly with the fees floating around I can't help but start to think that we got robbed with Sigurdsson. Feel that 40-45m could have purchased more than we got with him.

Starting to get nervous

Hell, I am just glad we have Sigurdsson.  Starting to look like we won't get anyone else.  Squad is thin enough with Sigurdsson.  Depressing enough we might have to keep McCarthy.

Nah Sig is a good signing and at 40 mill I think is about right. Proven premier player with good stats etc. once he's fit he'll be excellent for us.
