Id give Michael O Neill from Northern Ireland a go if we replace Pellegrini. Wrong timing, as Stoke are on his tail right now

Eduardo looked good earlier and I like nctham

Morelos has got to get a 30 mil move surely, doesn't stop scoring and goals asside great work ethic, a nightmare for defenders like an on form Diego Costa

Didn’t see the game this week but he looked good in the first group match against Liverpool and had an excellent headed goal wrongly ruled out.

Same build and running style as Enner Valencia though, they also have a good Japanese player, not sure he’d dislodge Lanzini or Fornals but certainly looks decent for them.
Thanks, mate, always a pleasure to talk about football with you, sir.

Newcastle are being linked with Xhaka in January.

I'd rather us sign him, even if its just to halt an fmgod meltdown.

Can't see him going Newcastle from bother sides, maybe a loan at a massive push. Due to wages, transfer fee etc

To be honest, I think he'll end up in Serie A or back in Germany, unless he really likes London life

I put him forward as a target in the summer. I’ve only seen bits and bobs but he will run the channels all day and won’t give the defence a second. Do you really think he would be going for £30 mill though?

Has Morelos sorted out his ill discipline from last season? 16 yellows and five reds (three straight, two from a pair of yellows) last season. That's the only question mark I'd have over him based on the last season and a half, but also the thing that will keep his value down a bit, I imagine.

Xhaka's going to be linked to everyone for January right now. It seems he's not wanted/doesn't want to be at Arsenal, we're still two months away from the window, and the sports writers have pages to fill. I imagine every day there will be 100-200 words in at least one paper linking Xhaka with *insert a club* then detailing him being out of favour and why.

We were again linked with the 22 years old Leganés (la Liga) striker Youssef En-Nesyri... international with Morocco, 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in).


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youssef_En-Nesyri




I do not want to contradict myself (as I said we need pacy and through lines wingers/strikers), but I`m not 100% sure about this player.


His buy clause is cheap (12 M Euro according Transfermarkt), yes... and he shot to box a lot and he´s the fighting type of player with a very good rate at aerial duels won...


But Haller has it also and we are still sitting in the downside half of the table and does not help us a lot.


Youssef En-Nesyri has many shots per game, yes, but mostly not on target or within a bad convertion ratio... as hes not really prolific as a striker...


So, I have y strong doubts on him. :arry:

Sorting the slowest midfield in the league has been a priority for a few years now.
If pell doesnt at least try and sort this in January he wont last the season.

In this vid with Málaga (but, 2 spanish Division!!) and some with Morocco (Qualifications games too) Youssef En-Nesyri looks much better... (Almost better than Samatta... but in the same path of a player)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuSw2G1oIYU


Hes fast, tricky, has a lot of pace and passing, good header, he can shot with both feets... looks like an interessting player. maybe a raw diamant, if he lays in the right hands..

we don't need giroud on a free and massive wages for 2 years.

Will never happen. Club has to be sold and then we'll start seeing ambition in January.

As a wild card option I'd look at The ball winning young scouse lad who tore us a new one in the carabao cup Branagan and the pacy forward who came on at the end. Both relatively cheap and not moody light weight
Imports from abroad.
Moreover they will have great sell on value .

I agreed 10000%...


BUT, it looks like it will not happen ( = board) / or Pelle is sattisfied with what is there available.


Gary Medel (I know, you dont like him, fair enough) went for 2 M Euro to Bologna this summer...


Ok, hes old, BUT still... 2 M??? :evil:


And hes better than C. Sanchez, believe me. (whats actually not that hard to be)


Even, if not, there are a LOT of others... (and not only from Southamerica)

Agreed, but I don't think he necessarily has to be young. An experienced player in the Patrick Vieira mould would be just the ticket for me, always, of course, providing he has been injury free

I don’t want to piss on people’s dreams of us going out splashing the cash, but what historical moment are people holding where Sully has ever given his manager cash to go shopping apart from buying snoody and that Portuguese fella with the payer money, when we were in the ****?

Bearing in mind that his mates in the press are telling everyone we’re skint again.
