  1. Amen! Young man, new league, new culture, new teammates, hardly had a preseason after ACON, not 100% fit (which he said so himself)... I’m sure the plan would have been to start playing him around September time - much like Digne last season but we don’t have that luxury now with injuries and suspensions so we’ll need to be supportive and patient.
  2. Yep - no luxury of giving Gbamin time to bed in. May force a change in system.
  3. All of a sudden we’re looking short of options in central midfield with Delph and Gomes injured and Schneiderlin suspended - maybe we did need Doucoure or another.
  4. Well our squad’s certainly deeper and better balanced than I can remember in a long, long time. We have at least 2 quality players for every position - I’m not writing Gibson off but that’s clearly where we’ve missed out. Add Zouma to this squad and we’d be laughing! Pickford/Lossl Coleman/Sidibé Digne/Baines Keane/Holgate Mina/Gibson Gbamin/Schneiderlin Gomes/Delph Gylfi/Davies Richarlison/Walcott Bernard/Iwobi Kean/DCL/Tosun There aren’t many squads better than that. We just need to shift Mirallas, Martina, Bolasie and Niasse (and Onyekuru) but it really does look like we have a plan at last... a lot of credit to Brands for this and Moshiri of course. It actually looks like future windows will be tweaks rather than 6/7 signings now with this young squad.
  5. He won’t need to unless we get them in the cup...
  6. Completely different player.
  7. Why is it awful? That’s what a player of this quality is worth in the current market. He’s a very creative and will add more speed, power and flair to our attack. He’s not had too many chances at Arsenal but look at their attacking options ahead of him e.g Ozil and Mhykatarian (spelling). When he’s played, he’s looked very dangerous. Only 23 too - we should see his best years.
  8. A wise man once said... 👀
  9. Very good source - reassures me that £60m was a maximum bid for us.
  10. This could be a great signing in my opinion!
  11. My only concern is the lack of centre back cover. I’m not keen on the idea of Rojo but will trust that Brands/Silva know better if something happens here. I’d be massively optimistic about the season ahead if we had kept hold of Zouma or signed equivalent quality but, as it stands, I think we’ve left ourselves short.
  12. I’d have loved him here but the prices quoted were ridiculous... it’s not my money to worry about but still. If there was a deal to be done including Tosun and Bolasie then I wouldn’t have minded it being dressed up as ‘worth £80m’ or whatever but Palace clearly wanted silly amounts and fair play to them - he’s got a contract there and is worth far more to them than any other team. Palace fans must see this as priceless as, without Zaha, they’d be pretty toothless in attack.
  13. There’s a deluded part of me that thinks we’re signing Umtiti on-loan from Barcelona.
  14. I dread to think what price Zouma could command in this market, where Maguire costs £80m+ and Lewis ‘fucking’ Dunk is quoted as a £45m player!!! 🤯
  15. Zouma - I accept it’s not happening but he’s been great for us and I do feel he wanted to stay but it was beyond him to make it happen. Looks like he’ll be first choice at Chelsea with Luiz seemingly gone and Rudiger still out so good luck to him - he’s class and deserves all the luck that comes his way.
  16. I like Iwobi. Think he’d be a cracking signing personally. Don’t think it’ll happen though.
  17. What's going to be better for Kenny’s development, sitting on the bench for us or playing regularly in Germany for a year?
  18. What would a Liverpool fan be doing in Liverpool on a non-match day?
  19. He’s been posing with a fan at the Titanic Hotel tonight - and yes it is him this time!
  20. What constitutes van Dijk’s level? Price tag? Maybe we need to start a poll... Romey has always seemed a man to honour his word to me. 😬
