I already like the Rondon signing. Decent goals return in most clubs he has played and majorly because he headbutted that prick Dan Gosling.

Quick 5am check to see if we've pulled something amazing off.


Nope.



Can I please get an intervention?



Or at least another fix? I can't wait until January for a RB

I've heard a rumour that Mbappe turned down Real because he's holding out for signing a pre-contract with us in January. We would have outbid them now but our accountant turned purple and had a heart attack so Mosh decided to wait and get him on a free

All in all we are stronger after the window gray and Townsend have already done more than Bernard and added pace to our team rondon will be a good option off the bench or if dcl gets injured I canít help be disappointed though that we didnít get a right back donít rate jjk and Seamus ainít getting any younger

Yeah our attacking options are more suited to the way we want to play now.

Iím disappointed we didnít get a RB - thereís likely to be plenty of games where itís pretty painful when either Coleman is injured or off form.

But it is what it is, the main thing will be hoping those games donít overlap with ones if Digne isnít available.

CM area, again weíre crossing our fingers but there clearly werenít the financial options to invest in that area (either big fees, or the fact that weíve still got 6 senior options there so no wage slots).

With all of these issues, we will be hoping that stricter tactical awareness will mitigate fluctuations in performance levels and also that everyone bears in mind that ďniceĒ football tends to go out the window when you need to be really pragmatic with your selection.

I guess we are looking at a squad til January of this. We should be OK I reckon. Probably was a good thing that we hardly spent anything and managed to trim the fat on the squad a bit. Also happy that we kept hold of Richarlison.

Goalkeepers - Pickford, Begovic, Lonergan

Right back - Coleman, Kenny

Left back - Digne, Delph

Centre back - Mina, Godfrey, Keane, Holgate, Branthwaite

Central midfield - Allan, Doucoure, Davies, Gomes, Gbamin

Wingers/attacking mids- Richarlison, Iwobi, Townsend, Gray, Gordon, James

Strikers - Calvert-Lewin, Rondon

Think if at the end of last summer in those heady days of Carlo Fantastico Ancelotti, Allan, Doucoure, James, bevvies in the Titani, truly the salad days, you had said on here - next summer it will be Andros Townsend, Big Sally DonJuan and rafacakes, you would have likely been banned for being a WUM.

That said, I like Rude Ron, always have done, his hold up play is excellent. This isn't like a big albatross deal that kills us for 5 years, it's just short term cover and an experienced head in attack.

Okay a bit odd that once again we've signed lots of our new managers ex players and I don't love that and I'm trying not to focus on that...but at least the targets we knew about where money was involved - Pattsman, Louis D, AMN, they fit...a profile. Young, upside, athletic.

Diaz in particular is a really good sign we are shopping at the right market when we have a bit of dough... we're just also able to add bodies economically.

No, but you would have been banned for using stupid names. :)

To be fair it's a good squad, with a few holes when it comes to depth. I think we are stronger and more balanced than last season, maybe topping our 59 points from isn't as big of an ask as I thought, especially if we get our home form back on track.

Did you miss the memo about James? I don't think the fact he didn't go will change anything. He'll be a sub at best.

I think Mina, Godfrey, and Keane will be rotated at the back, but I would not be surprised to see Godfrey played out of position more often than not. I also can see Iwobi and Townsend in and out of the team, depending on form and fitness.

I like that, but think Rafa will be more Townsend down the right, Gray down the left/mid and Richarlison closer to DCL. A 433 sneaking to a 4411 :)

They will probably now be working for the January window to get shut of James and find that elusive Coleman replacement. Only 4 months :D

Anyone heard any rumours that we turned down any bids for our better players.
Everton; we'd like to win as long as we don't upset anyone in doing so.
