Could see then going for Clyne on loan.
Is he fit? If so could be a temporary solution but his fitness record worries me.

A fit Clyne would be a great addition to the squad, but it’s been a while since he’s been fit.

Injury prone as you know , can't see us adding another to our Squad -

Cedric Soares , Southampton and Portuguese International Right Back out of contract this summer - the type our Director Of Football goes for .
Just a guess mind .

Soared would be a great signing on a free, have no problems with those type of frees, doubt we’d get him unfortunately.

Jayden Bogle is the player we should bring in at right back, but I won’t hold my breath.

Bogle would be ace, but I imagine he would cost £10-15m, and I doubt we will be spending that on a RB this window. I think we should go for Nathan Ferguson from WBA for around £1m since his contract is running out at the end of the season. Revisit the Bogle situation in the summer.

In:
Gabriel Barbosa, ST (£15m)
Sander Berge, DM (£18m)
Gedson Fernandes, CM (18-month Loan w/ option)
Nathan Ferguson (£1m)
Randolph (£2-3m)

Out:
Sanchez (tear up contract)
Wilshere (MLS might take him for <£1m?)
Roberto (Spanish team might take him for <£1m?)
Holland (loan to championship side)
Coventry (loan to league one side)

If Roma are happy to cut their losses on Nzonzi then I can see us taking over his contract (ends June 22) with an option for another year.

I'd be depressed if we bought yet another half-arsed f*** as a result of this injury to Fredericks.

Just imagine a parallel world where we targeted players we thought were the best for the job rather than looking at the Bosman list. Signing Manquillo to cover a gap and then watching him trundle out for us for another 4 years is probably more likely though.

...............................Haller..................................

...............Anderson..................Lanzini....................

...............................Fornals.................................

........................?.................Rice..........................


Such an important signing this. A Marc Vivian Foe type player sitting alongside Rice would allow a triad of Haller, Anderson and Lanzini to express themselves with Fornals sitting behind.

The single most important signing for me.

This formation ain't gonna happen. We play 3 @ the back with wing-backs now..

CM, RB and a reserve keeper are required in this window.
we do need another striker especially now Antonio is injured again.
Barbosa seems likely

no one will give us anything for sanchez, wilshere or Roberto !

Holland to west brom and diagana back home.

Possibly. But if Moyes really is in the market for a new, serious central midfielder (as he seems to be), then I think Moyes will have options to go 4-4-2.

I still think that it was as much about necessity as it was about choice for Moyes last time as it allowed him to get his 11 best players onto the pitch at the same time (and we didn't have many). The squad is better now. Time will tell I guess.

Lanzini has been as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike since he returned from injury. I'm not sure in his current form swapping him for a defender is quite as bad a trade-off as it once might have been.

Indeed... I'm not sure yesterday's experiment with 3 at the back was as effective as Moyes hoped. It'll take too much time to train 3 centre backs into making that effective... too many players weren't sure what their role was!

I expect to see us go back to 4 at the back on Friday. Our width against Bournemouth was superb and we seemed to miss some of that yesterday.

I expect to see us continue with Anderson supporting Haller and Fornals and Snodgrass wide. When Antonio returns I expect him to step in for either Anderson or Snodgrass! I agree with Aceface regarding Lanzini... he isn't the same player as he was!

Priority needs to be an alternative / competitor to Noble. Sander Berge would be outstanding!

With Moyes reportedly not sure about Fernandes, given the previous history of similar sentiments with Alacantra, Maddison, Dendoncker etc. it probably means he's not going to take the plunge.

Talking to my mate who supports Boro. It's all over their fans forum that we're signing Randolph back for £5.2m but writing off £1.5m they owe us for him. How does it make sense to pay almost £4m for a keeper as backup who wasn't deemed that good to start with?

Agreed. Lanzini looks a shell of the player he was before his injury. Offers absolutely nothing now and pulls out of every tackle too.

Roberto's confidence is screwed. Martin really isn't good enough. I think it's fair enough. Randolph is not a starter but he's a good stop-gap.
