Based on Ali Z ITK and fact that we are not linked to any RBs (but linked to sell Trippier), I believe we wont buy out & out RB.
In last few games of last season - Foyth was tried at RB & also Sissoko was played RWB during end of few games.
I think Poch will try to work with RB options we have and not make a move for this position in this market

RB has always been sell to buy. Herc said in Tripps thread last night he will be replaced if he leaves.

I think Ali Z is more referring to LB, DM and potentially CB, due to the current lack of outs.

Didn’t @Rob say don’t overestimate how much thought goes into these cryptics?

And also that we were already close yesterday with all the Madrid guesses?
Maybe people getting to two Diaz's instead of two Dani’s was ‘close’ seems close to me. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think RB will be replaced whether Trippier goes or not. we have Aurier, KWP, and can use Foyth or at a push Dier (I did say push). Last season we was weak at RB, because Trips was not just physically shattered but mentally knackered too. he had little protection with us having a season of understrength midfield, and not enough rotation with Aurier being absent for a good chunk

Might be Dier too, could be the only position he can get a game.

I think concerns over player turnover are mitigated when a lot of the core will be intact. Kane, Lloris, Dele, Son, Winks, Vertonghen, etc... Even if Davinson steps in for Toby he's well settled now. That's settled players in every third of the pitch.

Ndombele walks into the first team. Lo Celso likely too if CE leaves as expected. Sess will be a rotation/sub option. Even if we add say Ceballos and Olmo for example I don't think the team will suddenly be on wobbly foundations. Any striker we get will be a rotation option at best.

The fact we are looking to get these players in ASAP to help them integrate is important too.

Comparing the likes of Everton and Fulham is not fair really. They don't have the quality or continuity of squad and management that we have, and our targets are of a higher quality and more specifically scouted too.

If we want to be taken seriously, we need a proper RB. Making-do with Dier or Sissoko is not good enough and it won't win us the PL.

Sissoko worked his plums off covering Trippier.

This ain't the thread for discussing who can potentially play at RB, I can hear the whirling made by A&C and his ban stick already.

Looks like the crypto is a pair from Madrid then and with the diaz aspect its either a Diaz + Ceballos as a pair from madrid or possibly the pair goes further as two players called Diaz.

The second part of the cryptic or the next line which is part of the quotr not in thr cryptic looks like Eriksen going the other way.
