i'd absolutely take a gamble on abraham at this stage for that price like, jesus it shouldn't even be a question given rafa had him lined up last summer

swansea were f***ing pish, not reading anything into his spell there

we'll not be interested
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Abraham is worth a punt at £15million, IMO. Will Ashley allow it though? I wouldn't expect so.

Chelsea say Tammy Abraham can be had for 'around £15 million'

Now that would be great business IMO.

He's s***.

This is why we never get nice things :lol:

Kenedy was 's***' last year too apparently.

Just because he hasn't broken through yet, does not make him 's***'.

Such a simple way of looking at things.

No, Kenedy had a very good half-season for us when he was here. Abraham had a full, s*** season at Swansea. He hardly improved their fortunes and couldn't get a game ahead of Jordan Ayew because he wasn't good enough, so why would he change ours?

If Tammy Abraham is your idea of 'nice things' you unfortunately have had your expectations dampened that much by Mike Ashley that you see that as "great business". I would argue that's an even more simple way of looking at things.

Abraham at £15m is more than decent value in today's market, especially when some on here seem to think Gayle could fetch that sort of fee. He's big, fast and has an eye for goal. More importantly, I think he'd fit Rafa's style of play perfectly.

I do worry he's the next Carlton Cole I have to admit.

Didn't he start off quite well and Swansea and then get injured and never really got going again. If we got anywhere near 15 for Gayle and brought in Abraham that would be good business in my mind.

Kenedy had done nothing in the league whatsoever before joining us, and a good few said it was a desperate signing and he was rubbish. Rafa rated him though.

Now everyone loves him and is upset that the club won't pay £30 million for him.

The same manager Rafa rates Abraham the same way, and actually prioritised him last summer as the striker to bring in early and straight away. Didn't he skip a wedding or somethign to go and see Abraham to convince him? Something barmy like that anyway.

I'd rather trust Rafa's judgement thank you very much. He was at Chelsea and knows a lot about those young players. I have no doubt Abraham would be a fantastic signing at that price, and Rafa would get the most out of him.

I mean ... I find this all so ridiculous. It's such short sighted thinking to be writing that player off, but you go ahead.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Abraham >> Rondon any day for me. Definitely would rather buy potential than someone who's already proven to be average. I think Abraham will be a good player in time.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Doubt we'll sign anyone for more than 4-5m. Can see 1-2 players in that price category, at best.

Abraham would be an excellent signing even smashing our record, young and has all the attributes. Rafa has a lot to work with there and again although a top goal scorer would be nice, I can forget that if a striker’s all-round game gives us so much more and helps the team more ala Bellamy when Sir Bobby signed him.

Exciting times lads and lasses. Making sure we have momentum going into the new season :lol: :lol: :( Last season the players had some momentum from winning the Championship, the willingness and hunger to show that they can do reasonably well in our first season back. Now I find it hard to believe that the players feel like we can build on from that. No backing for Rafa, unhappy fans. Why should/will the players show any ambition and desire when the people running the club dont do it. Rafa is an amazing manager and man, but I think even he will struggle really hard to do as well as last season, especially with other teams at least trying. Also, the players probably realize by now that Rafa wont stay after this season. But yeah, if anyone can get something out of the players it's Rafa, but it will be tough..

That's the thing, this is merely to compete.

Our only hope is that we hold off relegation for a few years - write those seasons off - and pray for a hero to eventually buy us off Ashley. Then we can compete again, maybe pull off coups like Seri, Schurrle, Felipe Anderson etc. Just hang on for a while :(

Ashley doing his best to get rid of Rafa and get a cheap yes man in. Rafa came in and gave the fans hope and belief that maybe this club can get somewhere under him even with only decent backing. I doubt Mike expected Rafa to become this popular and convince (make us believe) the fans that this club can and should be so much more. The c*** doesn’t like this, as he prefers the fans quiet and in total apathy.

Still can't quite believe this transfer window is happening. Even my pessimistic mind thought we would sign a couple of players on top of Dubravka and Kenedy. It's utter insanity.
