Can still see us going for that Janssen at Spurs on loan now Llorente has signed.

Mate, he hasn't even been playing as a striker for us. He's a number 10, and one that drops deep. You can call Sandro a striker if you want, but he isn't the type who plays upfront on his own in the formation that we do

I've not callled him that Koeman has. Even Moshiri thinks he's a 10 by the sound of that interview but Koeman said he's a striker.

Having said that DCL is a striker and as we know he's played wingback recently.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I have zero qualms about watching grim football.

I'd offer my left bollocks for 35 drab, miserable 1-0 wins in the league right now.

Fuck pretty. Fuck being fancy and having the media purring about us and "neutrals" loving us. Fuck them all.

Roll our sleeves up. Have people hate watching us, dread playing us and hate getting ground down and beaten by 1 goal even more.

I'll take boring and grim all fucking day long if we are picking up points. And I expect this team to be able to pick up 3-6 points off 13 teams in this league

I don't but grim is normally functional. We won't be grim like Bolton were aggressive long ball play to your strengths grim. We'll be grim in terms of not having a functioning attack. We'll struggle week in and week out because we simply won't create enough chances not to. We'll never be too comfortable

Looks like Niasse to Palace is done, there with Sakho.

For me the issue isnt 'missed signings' its this seasons tactics of Koeman which pisses me off more.

We have many top players but I dont see the formation working for them... or the slow negative lack of tempo.

The first half at home to H.Split showed what we should be like every game.

Agreed we played well. But they are weak in comparison to most PL teams.

We get good money for the likes of Niasse and Cleverly and it all gets undone by Ross being a cunt.

3 or 4 shots a game so far, isn't it?

Need to start gelling and creating many more chances than that.

It could happen, but there are a few variables that are against us, like lots of new players to settle in, lots of new players to get used to each other, not much width or pace, and no target man which is what the manager craved.
Dignity does not consist in possessing honours, but in deserving them

Pretty much every game will be a nail biter.

Better start looking at U23s for cover for Baines... Garbutt maybe ?

He's the only one left with Galloway, Robinson and Connolly out on loan now.

I think if most people are honest with themselves, there wasn't really an available striker that we could have got. No one was really into Llorente until Chelsea supposedly got interested. They and spurs are better than us.
