  1. 15m Assuming season gets completed I actually think west brom or Leeds could be a great fit as promoted big clubs. Wages wouldn’t be as big an issue. Don’t know enough here, looks like this Gabriel fella is coming in.
  2. Was supposed to be there. First derby. Devastated. F***ing COVID-19 keeping us stateside. It's so selfish but if i'm being honest i hope we draw. I can't handle the thought of not being there to see the victory.
  3. How much credit do we give Duncan for DCL's growth?
  4. No way. We'll get smoked with a pairing of Gomes and Siggy. Who is going to cover more than a few feet of ground and actually put a legitimate tackle in? I don't want Siggy to start but if he does it has to be off the left in that creative role.
  5. Agreed but we're not in a position to fix all of our problems in one window. Especially considering how many we created in past ones. RB is a priority but I'd put CB, CM and RM above it. Going back to Marcel's direct quotes on having a squad of 23 players. 3 gks 8 def 6 mid 6 fwd. GK: Pickford, Lossl, JVirginia - good numberDEF: Holgate, Keane, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Kenny NEED CB and LBMID: Delph, Gylfi, Morgan, Andre, Gbamin, Davies - good numberFWD: Richarlison, Walcott, Iwobi, Bernard, DCL, Kean - good number Deadwood: Tosun, Bolasie, Sandro, Pennington, Connolly, Beni, Dowell My ideal activity: Buy new CB, Sell Keane and promote Lewis Gibson, resign Baines. Sell Gylfi and buy a more defensive mid replacement (so delph doesn't sniff the field), sell Morgan and keep Besic (not sure who we would buy and convince to be our 6th option/cover in midfield). Sell Walcott and buy replacement. Sell other deadwood. We could raise about 60-70mil in selling those players and would be spending about 100-120mil on a CB, DM and RM.
  6. We nearly got a result at Arsenal with a midfield of Siggy Morgan Delph and Iwobi. Stop for a quick second and just think about that. It's true Arsenal aren't very good but they've built some good momentum which can overcome lack of talent in stages - similar to Duncan's couple of games. Considering its importance losing that game is a big blow but we should be excited in knowing we can go to these 'bigger' clubs and compete. Not hope to nick a draw or fight for 1-0, I mean really compete by trying to outplay them. That's how you improve as a club. Love Carlo. Only knock on him is why he won't start Bernard consistently. Always changes the game for us. For the rest of the season i'd like to see pickford coleman mina holgate digne delph gomes walcott bernard richie dcl. Bring on iwobi or sidibe for walcott depending on score. siggy or kean for bernard again depending on score. Davies for gomes to see out matches. It kills me to put delph and walcott in there but they're the best options right now for what we're trying to do. Replace them in the summer and we're a really dangerous team.
  7. Exactly why would prefer not to hang richarlison out to dry over there. Can't make our best player defend all game. If Gomes is going to start I'd also like to add some defensive cover on the wing so he doesn't have to go into so many tackles. Pickford Coleman Mina Holgate Digne Sidibe Gomes Morgan Bernard Richarlison DCL
  8. Long story short I have a ticket to the game I can't use in the Upper Gwladys. First one to send me a private message with their address and I'll get it there by Saturday. I paid 42 pounds for it but will gladly accept 30 pounds.
  9. No idea if this was the initial diagnosis and the club kept it close to the vest but in my lifetime watching sports - the real football, american football, baseball, hockey, lacrosse etc. - this is the most remarkable recovery from injury i can remember. Another chance for Goodison to create an indelible memory when he first gets back on the pitch.
