If you look at the players we’ve been linked with none of them are special barring Rabiot but JJ has already dismissed this link. It would even be fair to say they’re all unknowns or cheap stocking fillers at best. We need quality not more 3rd raters.
There were rumours Inter wanted him in the summer but were only prepared up to £11m whereas Levy reportedly wanted £30m for him. Given his rapidly declining fitness and even in this market, £10-15m is the best we can hope for. It’s sad to say but it’s time to let Moussa go.
I still feel bad for Janssen, it’s not his fault he isn’t of the required standard. We should never have signed him in the 1st place.
What’s his history? 1 season in the Dutch top flight for a mediocre team and prior to that he was playing in the Dutch lower leagues at a standard which is...
I like Gazzaniga and hopefully he now becomes our permanent number 2 over and above error prone Vorm. My only concerns with Gazzaniga and as seen with Lloris too is they both struggle with crosses into the box and both suffer from poor clearances. I’m sure we’ve had ITK before that Gazzaniga...
At last a proper team performance, so many positives. Foyth was outstanding, Sanchez, Aurier and KWP also did very well as did Winks and Wanyama. Great to see Son back in the goals and smiling again. Eriksen had a decent game too, Alli was average but it was vital match practice. Gazzaniga made...
To be a successful full back you need to either and/or:
Trippier is none of these... runs in treacle, very weak and doesn’t have a clue where the ball, he and/or the opposition is half the time. He’s just nowhere near the standard needed for a top 4/6 side. He’s...
Vorm, Trippier, Dier, Skipp, Sissoko, Moura, Kane
Aurier, Foyth, Winks, Wanyama, Eriksen, Alli, Son all need match practice and fitness... perfect opportunity for them.
Temporary solution is to play Winks and Dembele. Given the latters inability to maraude forward these days he can still utitlise his ability to shield the ball as a DM, allowing Winks to be the progressive of the two. Add Eriksen, Lamela and Alli, with Aurier/KWP and Rose then we’ve a well...
Exactly, football constantly evolves. Whether you’re a struggling side or the cream of the crop you’ve always got to bolster your squad every year... whether it be moving out squad players, replacing ageing and/or players whom won’t sign new deals or taking up the chance to sign genuine quality...
