Hate to think where we would be without the 7 goals Gylfi had a hand in in the league ....not great stats granted but in a shite team even,  he offers more than most ...Still think the best is yet to come and he needs to be a no 10 not a fucking winger.

Don't see point of judging any attacking player on just stats when we've been specifically trained/played percentage defensive football for most of the season with no coherent attacking shape or plan

Think was Sig was overpriced but would want to see him in a functioning team in the 10 position before discarding him....

Get rid of the shite and bring in 3 or 4 quality players.

We still need to be able to field 11 players!

Bizarre this, loan out young talent like Vlasic, Holgate and Kenny and yet you wanna keep shite like Martina, Besic, Robles and even Steklenburg

Must have been reading Big Sams autobiography....

Robles is going, we've got more pressing issues than a backup keeper, so unless a decent youngster is available at a low price, we'll be sticking with Pickford and Stek as sub

Sell Williams, Martina and Garbutt
Buy a new CB and LB
Assuming we get another CB I can see RFM being sold, we'd still have Jags, Holgate, Keane, new guy, plus Pennington out on loan somewhere with recall clause if we get injuries
RB of Coleman and Kenny is fine

Sell Rooney, Besic and Mirallas
McCarthy is injured and we won't be able to shift him
Buy new CM
Not sure if we'll go for a creative/winger at this stage, if we did you'd imagine Bolasie would be sold

A new pacy striker would be nice, send DCL out on loan as he'd be down at 4th choice

So sell Williams, Martina, Garbutt, Besic, Mirallas, Rooney

Get in a new CB, LB, CM, CF

Iíve a feeling that a lot of our Ďoutsí will be loans with us paying a portion of the wages. Canít see anyone taking Schneiderlin or Williams at the wages theyíre on.

Hopefully Iím proved wrong!

That would be fairly pointless? We'd free up a bit of the wage bill temporarily, only to be in a worse situation next summer. Can't see us loaning out any of the senior squad members, it's keep or sell

Sorry what??


With Gana and Schneids as the 2??

I know I've tried to forget most of last season but isn't this exactly what we did? And it was a shambles, the opposition just walked through us time and again

All the talk of everyone wanting to get their business done before the World Cup, and hardly anyone has done anything. It's not just us

There will be nothing done pre or during the WC so relax!!
We need to sell to buy, our saleable assets that we will maybe be happy to sell are Yannick, and I cant see us getting more than 18m for him, Williams maybe 3m, Klassen maybe 10m for him, Sandro maybe 10m for him from a Spanish club. That would bring in aroud 45m maybe.
Cant see us pulling up trees this summer in the market with that money.
Christ Steve Walsh did an TERRIBLE job!

 :headbang: we don't need to sell to buy, and we don't have just the money from sales to spend

We need to reduce the squad size drastically, and it would be continued stupid business sense to keep buying before we've actually rid ourselves of some of the shit in the squad

Heís fine as a back up keeper - especially for where we are.

Plus no one of potential starter quality is going to come as they know they wonít be challenging Pickford.

Chelsea signed Rob Green, Man Utd got Lee Grant.... Silva has said he wants three keepers, the third tends to be the old experienced player.... so maybe we will get another in.... or not.... who knows

Stoke want him too.

A bidding war? For Ashley Williams?! The world is coming to an end
