Is Gazzaniga our first Argentina international?

Unlike most of my fellow countrypersons I am a fan of Argentina, the Psychopath's Brazil.

Some suggestions on Twitter by journalists that the Wilson deal is actually an initial loan.

The claim is a loan which converts to a permanent deal on 1 July 2022. Defers the transfer fee until the next accounting year.

Makes perfect sense and both clubs seem happy with the deal.

Harold Wilson was prime minister not Harry Wilson.

Two really decent signings that will be the envy of most teams in the league.
Hope they don’t read here though as majority of posts seem to be harping on about the deals being late, rather than welcoming them.

Really?
Or do you mean, there was one posting about the deals being late followed by a number scornful of this notion?

Precisely. And a warm welcome to FFC to our two newest additions.

The deal being late post was just yet another post trying to build up to have a dig at TK. Predictable.

For me, Betts is a better keeper than gazzaniga, so not sure why we swapped one for the other. I also worry about rodak getting in the side now. Gazzaniga is definitely seen as no 1. Seems unfair but hey ho.

Betts was statistically one of the worst keepers in the championship last season and he was on £30k a week, short of paying him a third of that there’s no point keeping him because he’s just not good enough for us, and Gazzaniga is 100% better than him

Betts didn't  want to sign a new contract, so what choice do you have

+1

Betts isn't the same keeper he was several seasons ago unfortunately.

Gazzaniga held his own in the Spurs goal when Lloris was out including in UCL games if I recall, whereas Betts was deemed not good enough at Boro. Factor in Betts’ wages plus he wanted to move on and it’s a no brainer really. Shame, as Betts was a good keeper for a while and served us well, but this is a good move for all parties. Apart from maybe Rodak.

Looking at Silva's resume, he seemed pretty willing to rotate keepers during his time at Watford and Hull. Think this might be a similar situation with Gazzaniga and Rodak.
