‘The club has shown its intent with the three signings they have made in this window (Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure). It helps when you have a great and hugely knowledgeable manager. Let’s hope in the next few years, others want to join us.

“We are doing everything to be creative but it’s not easy to be creative without the proper funds for the players we are talking about,” Bilic told a news conference ahead of Sunday’s season opener at home to Leicester City.

Sept 11 (Reuters) – Newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion have unfinished business in the transfer market as they aim to buy more players but are struggling to get further deals over the line due to a lack of funds, manager Slaven Bilic said on Friday.

West Brom have already signed five players — Matheus Pereira, Grady Diangana, Callum Robinson, Cedric Kipre and David Button — in the close-season since earning promotion back to the Premier League after a two-year absence.

Morgan is the fifth high-profile U.S. international to join the WSL this season after Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis signed for Manchester City while Tobin Heath and Christen Press joined Manchester United.

Sept 12 (Reuters) – Tottenham Hotspur Women have signed United States international and twice World Cup winner Alex Morgan on a season-long deal, the Women’s Super League (WSL) club said in a statement website on Saturday.

Though Everton may appear a step down for someone who has graced clubs of that stature, Rodriguez has twice been signed under current Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti and spoke to his international team-mate Yerry Mina before committing to Goodison.

Steve Evans would not even give him a place on the bench. Bielsa simply couldn’t fathom why the player was playing in the forward line and not shielding defence. The quality and speed of his distribution on Saturday night suggests he will be another fine addition to this division.

The presence of a second striker allowed Edouard to drop into space and take his game to new heights last term and, with Ajeti adjudged fit enough to start for the first time since his £5m transfer from West Ham, there was no requirement for the Frenchman to hold a high position.

There was polite applause from the Staggies supporters in the east stand as the home team emerged from the opposite side of the pitch and by and large they stuck to the strict code of conduct drawn up for the day.

It was from one of those deeper pockets that he started the one-two with James Forrest that carried him into the box where he fell under the close attentions of Jordan Tillson and was instantly awarded the penalty by referee Andrew Dallas. 

Very early days, of course. Time will tell if the testimonies to Harrison’s abilities provided by David Villa and Andrea Pirlo, no less, when they encountered him in New York should have told City and Pep Guardiola to give the 23-year-old a run. But he had done enough by the end to remind us of Marcelo Bielsa’s love of a lost cause.

They will concede more than most – though Robin Koch will surely improve as he adapts to a pace of football which looked too much for him at times. But sides know that they face some task commanding enough of the ball to exploit the frailties.

The powers-that be bestowed test event status on this fixture and, as 300 Ross County supporters settled into their socially-distanced seats, Neil Lennon used the occasion to try out a few new ideas of his own. 

‘Leeds have made a real statement tonight’: Graeme Souness… Jamie Carragher blasts ‘arrogant’ Virgil van Dijk for rare… Michael Owen dazzled and Alan Smith realised his beloved… It’s a survival of the fittest for the Premier League’s…

‘We are looking to beat the rival in our style,’ he said in the post-match press conference room. ‘Confidence means that you can find out more should not be afraid.’ And with his only word of English of the night – ‘thankyou’ – he was gone. This was a serious statement of intent.
