Malcom (Filipe Silva de Oliveira)


#321

Eden Hazard all over again


#322

Thats about 120 million saved in 2 windows on him and Lemar then.:wink:


#323

No doubt if we wait till the summer there will be bigger clubs in the running and we’ll be back of the queue once again.


#324

Problem is clubs like Liverpool are joining the bigger clubs as more attractive than us and have and pay the going rate.


#325

Always the least likely of the 3, disappointing to miss out on him nonetheless


#326

Would have been nice building block for next manager. Whoever that is is going to inherit a bunch of expiring contracts and some players on the wrong side of 30.


#327

Phew.
I bet Wenger was sweating thinking he was going to have to splash some cash :grinning:
Back to the bargain basement for him so he can rummage through some players that no one else wants.


#328

Guess Wenger doesn’t want to start a bidding war after Bordeaux president comments. He’s not that type of manager.


#329

Disappointing to lose out on this. We need to bring in a player just like him to compliment the addition of creative players.


#330

We really need to complete the deal with him joining in the summer, he clearly wants to come and they simply don’t want to lose him right now.

Just feels like Wenger wants to sign players for the here and now and fuck the next manager coming in, you would have thought that at the least he wasn’t into pulling a Fergie and leaving a shambles of a squad for the next guy but why am I not surprised.


#331

Called it.

I hope we can have some agreement in place for the summer, but Alexis is an example that those things mean jack shit.


#332

Imagine if we allow this to happen


#333

Spurs heavy favourites for him.

Buy him now and have him loaned back to Bordeaux till the end of the season and he joins us in June.


#334

I’m also reading they don’t want to do a deal this winter (Bordeaux/Malcom) and want to keep him until the summer. That is fair enough imo. If Spurs does give him that so be it


#335

I don’t get this “inexperienced” thing. At 20, he is not going to be the finished product but why is that a problem? He has made a lot of senior appearances and he clearly has talent.

I find it difficult to believe that is the reason we’ve pulled back from signing him.


#336

This will bite us in the bottom won’t it?


#337

Such a stupid club.


#338

Watch him go and kill it for Tottenham now lol.


#339

“We were after him and scouted him, but…” finish the sentence :ozil2:


#340

So much for Svengali being our saviour.
