Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

bob We can leave Lanzini out as he won't be available until next year..IF he were to make a miraculous recovery I think you can adjust the squad in January.. Similarly if we think Reid and Carroll won't play a part until then, we can leave them out too..Hugill and Byram and even Fernandes (who hasn...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

I think we're at 24 now - I'm fairly sure Diop doesn't count as he was under 21 on January 1st, 1997. So we have space for one right now. We're at 25. Adrian, Fabianski, Byram, Fredericks, Zabaleta, Cresswell, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Reid, Balbuena, Wilshere, Noble, Fernandes, Cullen, Obiang, Makasi, Yar...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

There's no chance we'll spend another £40m (net) this window. I'll be quite surprised if we spend any more than we bring in at this point. We currently have our 25 squad members, so I'm sure we won't be looking to bring in any more than we sell. Bearing in mind that Oxford doesn't count as one of th...

Sanchez cannot be any worse than Kouyate was last season.

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

you're bang on, although my only concern is Rice covering off 2 roles, feels like we are one light in CB? We'll have Ogbonna back there with Diop or Balbuena and the other on the bench. A lot may depend on how injured Reid is, but Rice then covers, which probably explains the signing of Sanchez, gi...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

It matters not. The point remains that any progressive club should be looking at buying only players who improve the starting Xl or who have the potential to do so. Sanchez would appear to be neither: a sticking plaster solution that hints at the usual skinflintery. We have few CMs of any quality. ...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

Wilshere for Mario and Sanchez in for Kouyate (plus Lanzini out of the picture although that can't be helped). An argument to be made we'd be weaker in the middle of the park than last season. Mario was poor for us, apart from the last 3-4 games. Kouyate has been awful for 2 years now. Also, both o...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 4 days remaining

If a player of Abraham's record was coming from Italian, French or Portuguese league, I'm sure there'd be near universal excitement. He's scored 3 goals in his last 29 games. 2 of those were in an 8-1 win over Notts County. He is completely unproven in the Prem, especially for the money they'd want...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

I'd love it if we went back in for Bernard and blew Everton out of the water! He feels like another one, alongside Mawson and Seri, who we could really regret not signing. Most reports say he's turned down Athletico Madrid, AC Milan and Chelsea, which sounds like he's gone for the mercenary approac...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

I personally thought Fulham had done some good business this window but a few pundits have tipped them to be relegated funnily enough. I think Fulham and Wolves will be fine this year. Cardiff are in big trouble, and I think Huddersfield haven't improved too. I even fancy Burnley to struggle now, a...

Re: Summer Transfer Window 2018- 3 days remaining

The Sanchez deal depends on what he's coming in to do in my opinion. If he's coming in to start every week then I don't rate it. If he's coming in as cover for Rice then I'm ok with it. Has anyone seen a fee for the deal?
