    Maybe Koeman could act as an intermediary.

    This puts "going Dutch" into a whole new light. Daters beware.

    I put no stock in the veracity of this article since it's just seem to be a poorly-translated repost of some likely-fabricated rumor, however I still feel the need to post it as an example of how clubs are becoming more....um....creative with their payment structures for players in these hard times.

    Atlético’s latest offer for Dest includes crack for FC Barcelona

    (it might also be a case of the My Pillow guy suddenly deciding to spend whatever's left of his fortune on a soccer team, then falling off the wagon right before the transfer season)

    I'm certain I've posted this elsewhere but I always love to regal my in-laws with how bad all things Dutch are:

    Dutch door - half a door
    Dutch date - you pay
    In Dutch - in trouble
    Dutch cure - suicide
    Dutch courage - drunk
    Dutch comfort - "it could be worse..."
    Dutch leave - awol
    Dutch widow - sex worker
    Dutch betting - hedging your bets
    Dutch-uncle - not an uncle, dressing you down
    Dutch gold - fake bad gold leaf
    Dutch Concert - drunk Dutchmen making noise

    (They love this schtick in Sneek btw, because they think they're Frysk, not Dutch...)

    Ok, as you were...

    What is that? A dictionary from the 1950's?

    Who uses those words anymore? ;)

    No way can I see Dest going to Athletico Madrid, but he is shockingly in frame still to POSSIBLY move this window......and it is an absurd strategic move by Barcelona.

    The last bit is news to me. If true, it suggests continued major interest, probably even now.

    Or a straight trade for Miazga!

    The gamble for Dest would be that James does not come back as quickly or he loses a step. Because James before injury was freakin' good.

    I would certainly take my chances with Alves breaking down before I would beating an inform james

    Yeah, Chelsea seems dubious with James and Chilwell blocking him...plus they're kind of an easily distractible, vibes-only club.
