    Thought we could do with a thread for our Marquee Signings only. Thought about specifying a criteria but all I can think of is they must break our current transfer record to get on it (or be worth more if it's a loan).

    So far I have:
    • Silva
    • Patricio
    • Talisca
    • Lindleof

    Who will be first? Are there any more?

    Probably make an exception in your criteria for a big free transfer like Wilshere, certainly think that would be marquee as it would surprise the entirety of English media

    It took Fosun about a year to break the Championship transfer record.... how long before we break the Premier League record? ;)

    Errr....wouldn’t hold your breath.
    Easy to sign someone that performs better than Pogba, already did and was only 15m, but knocking on 100m will be a while.
    Don’t think even Fosun’s FFP creative accounting can stretch that far for quite some time.

    Hopefully Silva will be our 1st singing in the coming days.

    Silva, Talisca, Sanches, Lindelhof, Patricio, Bertrand... we should avoid relegation

    So with Thelwell hinting at something happening early and all the whispers around Silva looks like it's going to be the Portuguese striker first through the door.

    Always thought it a bit of a strange term, but I checked with the oracle before I started the thread.

    Funfact: the phrase was first used in reference to the transfer of Mark Hughes to Barcelona. Hence, his famous nickname - Marquee Mark..........

    If we sign Silva,Talisca and Lindleof it will be an incredible coup. At this moment Silva looks the most likely.

    Beating Roma to Talisca as a marquee signing would certainly be a statement of ‘in tent’...

    Sorry...

    Not too sure about Talisca, his hairstyle makes him look a little too camp for the English leagues.

    Would he be a square peg in a round hole though?

    :rolleyes:

    Or indeed, I support a ‘pole’ on whether we think we can peg our hopes on him signing.
    He does seem to cover a lot of grass.

    A year ago signing Silva was a thought that didn’t even cross my mind. Unbelievable that we are in a position now to get him, I think he’ll excel in the prem.

    Naargh ! to most of 'em. Esp. Wilshire. Needs too many injections to stand up.. But.
    I'd be over the marquee moon if we signed Lewandowski

    If we sign Talisca it'd be a hard choice between him and Neves on my shirt this year...

    He'd make more sense if we was selling Neves but I wouldn't mind him. Who doesn't mind a £40m Baca midfielder in the team.
