Not sure about this guy... a lot of money and seems to have been around a few clubs including Reading who for shot of him.

Very risky.

Amalfitano and maybe O'Brien as well?

Rather we keep Collins not fussed about the other three.

Late bloomer has a lot of potential, a lot of power and scares the sh*t out of fullbacks...

Just seen him interviewed on SSN. Ala Arry from his car. Admin outstanding but virtually signed. He thinks he will be competing with Moses but I can see him, Moses and sakho as a front 3 next game. With Obaing, Koyate and Payet behind. That would leave Nobes, Lanzini et al on the bench with Song still to come.

This is why I think we have best squad ever...

On paper..Pardon?

So that'd be a front six of,

Obiang
Kouyate
Payet
Moses
Sakho
Antonio

There's something about that front 6 that I really like.... :?

Can't imagine Slav will shift his newly appointed captain out of the starting lineup but I'm very happy we've secured Antonio today :thup:

Great options.

But Noble and Lanzini aren't being dropped any time soon.

Welcome Michail!
I can see him terrifying defences in the PL this season. Not afraid to have a go and take on tricky shots.
Really likable character who will be a firm fan favourite I reckon.

Can't wait for these internationals to be over so we can get up and running for a proper big season to give the Boleyn the send off it deserves, very excited!! :scarfer:

Noble would always be in my team natch but if we're looking for power and pace for any specific game that is absolutely frightening. Song and potentially Adebayor too..... 8-)

I doubt Lanzini will be in the 11 every week

Noble is our Captain mate. He's not going anywhere other than first on the team sheet.

I think the International break will give us more time for the newbies to get acquainted, so it's come at a good time.
