    I think he's, what? 33 now?

    Good deal for Ipswich.

    Simone Zaza signs for West Ham on loan, top player.

    Seen a few people saying he's very good. Admittedly the only time I've seen him play was against Germany when he hit that penalty. But his record isn't very impressive. 58 goals in 156 matches, with half of those goals being in Serie B and Serie C.

    Yeah his penalty was awful. I've seen him plenty of times in Italy, Serie A is actually quite a difficult league to score in for a striker because the league is very tactically rigged and defensive, infact last season only Higuain got more than 20 goals in it last year compared with the EPL where Agüero, Vardy and Kane got more than that. In regards to scoring goals in general though, Zaza can improve, but his hold up play and technical ability are top class from what I've seen, think he's an upgrade on anything West Ham have up top.

    Oliver Burke has signed for RB Leipzig for £13 million!

    One of the strangest transfers I've seen. I'd never heard of him until his call up. * crazy money.

    Is that the wee Scottish * that plays for Nottm Forest? :97:

    I've never seen him in the flesh, only ever seen him as a face-less character in Fitba Manager.

    I saw him on TV the other night. He's got a lot of talent and is very quick, but one of those players who takes it past an entire team and then * his cross into row z

    Burke is quality, had a lot of clubs sniffing about him. Obviously picked a side he's going to get a regular game for.

    Leipzig were also in for Reece Oxford from West Ham I remember. Seems like they're looking about the English league for transfers, quite unusual.

    £13m, ffs, seriously what a crock of * that league is. Only thing that amazes me is that the Germans are turning into crackpots too now.

    Looking forward to a £20m bid for Griff in the coming days.

    Sorry he's a no-mark and always will be, ffs, we have Scottish players and not one of them is near a £13m player, and this boy is certainly not one.

    Burke has the potential.

    Could be our Gareth Bale. Tall, strong, fast and athletic.

    Ugly, aye, but he's no 'wee'.

    Looked a player every time I've seen him, 13 mil seems excessive.
