Working on the fonseca model of the 2 defensive midfielders, one is very defensive, holding player (gana and baningime)
The other player is a box to box, pick a pass, turn defence into attack type. I don't believe we possess anyone like that. (I think it's a position fred does for fonseca this season.)

Do you think Sig could play in that role?

I think 3 signings is needed: I'd class all these as attainable.

1. Centre midfielder who can pass the ball and start attacks - Will Hughes, Max Meyer, Cyprien.
2. Athletic Left back - Luke Shaw, Ryan Bertrand (bit older now), Kennedy, Grimaldo.
3. Centre Back - Still not really convinced by any of or options apart from Jags, which is sad. I'd love us to go for Tah. Him and Holgate would be what I'd go for. alternatives would be: Mawson or Sarr.

Bring Lookman back in, give more minutes to Vlasic and the attack will take care of itself over time. I'd be tempted to try Walcott up top too.

Judging by some of the football Japan are playing at the moment we should explore their players... Killing Belgium at the moment.

Playing some great football here.

Saying that, itís not like we havenít seen shit teams look like Barcelona when whyíre against a Roberto Martinez team.

I'd take a look at Lamina from Saints.

Max Meyer on a free 22 yrs old, german international, looks really speedy.  Market value of 16 million euros.  Looks like he tracks back and not afraid to get stuck in.  Anyone here familiar with him??

Iím a fan. Heís played deeper as a CM last year, but mostly seen him as a 10. He can pick a pass and carry the ball comfortably, canít comment on his defending.

Think heíd be ideal for us too be honest. On a free I can see other, more desirable clubs will be in for him but we deffo should be after him.

Going to throw this out there....if Utd do sign a centre back both jones and smalling are much better than anything we 've got and would probs be a reasonable price.

Phill jones is starting to look like Franz Beckenbauer.

Reece Oxford, Kimpembe, Zouma or a cheeky blockbuster bid for Big Jonathan Tah.

Solid addition, if true. Much better player than Davies at this stage and can take some of the pressure off him.

I'd take Mangala too be fair. It's that point in the window where we just need a body lol.

Holgate would be the perfect foil for someone like Mina or Zouma. Hope he gets significant game time this year.
