Without the specific of Rojo I think itís easy to get carried away with every signing must be appreciable in value.

Part of DoFís role is to identify players who will improve the team.

Sometimes that will be young players, sometimes it will be unheard of players but sometimes it will be a player who appears to be not great but they actually fit into what the team is trying to do.

Finding players who make everyone else better is just as important as ones with individual qualities.

Echo saying weíre after a 6 and another striker.

No 8 then, wonder who will be tried on for creativity? Sigurdsson / Davies / Dowell it must be.

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

So young, fast and not a disaster defensively.

I think might struggle to find one for £10m as most people are looking for that ;)

Theyíre who heís played so far (Porto game was Best and that had Dowell and Davies).

Iíd say we were looking to use width more so 6 will be tasked with getting the ball out there.

I guess it could be Dowell.... but i fear the fans will turn on him the same as they did for Barkley... they expect miracles from kids..

If Siggy plays as a ten, I hope its besides Gana and Besic/Baninime, with Siggy in the centre of a midfield 3... He's pretty naff as a ten behind the striker..

Davies as a ten is just terrible, He's more like a Lee Carsley,, but with out the passing ability... id say a #8.

I think Tosun is decent and will get around 12-15 goals in the Premier League but I think a lack of real pace means heíll never quite be top class. I like him though as he words hard and is a decent footballer.

We need more competition though that stretches beyond chucking Niasse on to run around.

Interesting re DCL, maybe will be used as a wide forward option (which I donít mind).

Itís his final touch and awareness I think heís a little lacking in, letís see I hope Iím wrong after all he only signed last winter

Does a ten even exist in football anymore? Genuine question, Iím not great with tactics but I tend to think of goalscoring widemen, box to box pogba types and playmaking forwards who can do it all in the modern game.

Silva but now in double 10 role with de Bruyne, Isco but 10 on the LW?

Not many play as out and out 10 in the hole no.

What a great time to purchase a post peak immobile Gylfi Sigurdsson.

God I hope he has a good season and shuts me up.

I agree in general. I just think your team needs to be *something* before you can start chasing those short-term, perfect fit signings.

And we are nothing right now. Just a bunch of spare pieces from a bunch of different puzzles.
