The early transfer rumors—even a few that “are all done except for a few details!!” that fade away.
The potential signings that never happen because of changed circumstances.

Allen and guests Zach and Sid are here to make sense of it all. Not just the players and where they fit, but also whether these signings indicate a change of philosophy in the Villarreal front office.
