I’m leaning towards this ATM because otherwise how dya fit gylfi in?

             Carvalho
   Gueye


Walcott Gylfi Lozano

          Tosun



Thought that when we signed him and Klaassen that we’d go with

deep DM

Klaassen Sigurdsson

Then three up top.

Not sure why nobody has Davies in any of their proposed lineups, I can see Silva really rating him as he’s got the potential to be a good box to box player.

He covers a lot of ground, reasonable pace/dribbling/passing/tackling and young enough to be moulded into how Silva wants him to play

He's ideal for a 4-3-3 and the way Silva wants to play. I'd much prefer him playing there than anyone else we have in the squad at the moment.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Yeah, out of the personnel we currently have, this would be my choice for a front 6 (not sure Sigurdsson has the energy/speed for a high-press, although he does have a good engine, so maybe)

               Davies Gana Vlasic
            Lookman Tosun Walcott
Dignity does not consist in possessing honours, but in deserving them

            Lookman Tosun Walcott

I’d say Sigurdsson much more able to play it than Vlasic (right now).

Don’t forget Sigurdsson’s distance covered stats are always very good.

Also if we take 2009-12 Barça as the best example of 433, high energy pressing etc their midfield was Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta.

Properly executed you should reduce mad long sprints that require Uber athletes, as everyone is always close(r) together and you’re higher up the pitch.

STARTING LINE UP
I would like the following:



Bench of: Steklenberg, Jagielka, Holgate, Angelińo, Davies, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman


TRANSFERS IN AND WHO I'D KEEP
Not really sure what players we will get, the ones we don't have are just examples. But I'd like to see us sign:

- Back Up Left back - ready to replace Baines (Fabra might be a bad example, know little about him, would love Chilwell and we've been linked with Angelińo)
- Centre back to partner Keane (hopefully Keane comes good next season)
- Defensive Midfielder
- Left Winger (Lozano, Kluivert, Brahimi, etc - or put trust in Lookman and don't sign anyone)

They IMO are the essentials. Bonus signings would be a player like Maddison to put pressure on Sigurdsson but not as essential, another centre back and a better striker than Tosun if they were to come available. I'd like us to have a punt on Andre Silva, he's not gone bad overnight and if Huddersfield are in for him that would suggest he's more than obtainable and the right age.

We also will probably need a box-to-box midfielder to play the Marco Silva way, if available I'd love to see us sign Marcelo Brozovic, but doubt he's obtainable.

The rest of the squad I'd keep the following:

Nikola Vlašić
Jonjoe Kenny
Beni Baningime
Davy Klaassen (would like to see him given a chance)
Mateusz Hewelt


TRANSFERS OUT
And try to sell/loan/get as many as off the wage budget of the following:

Morgan Schneiderlin
Ashley Williams
Yannick Bolasie
Sandro Ramirez
Wayne Rooney
Kevin Mirallas
Eliaquim Mangala
Cuco Martina
James McCarthy
Oumar Niasse
Ramiro Funes Mori
Kieran Dowell (LOAN)
Brendan Galloway (LOAN)
Joel Robles
Luke Garbutt
Matthew Pennington (LOAN)
Shani Tarashaj
Tyias Browning
Henry Onyekuru (LOAN)

This would leave us with a squad of 22. With room for more and any stragglers. The obvious problem is how do you shift 11 senior players all at once? It's going to be tough.


MY SEMI-REALISTIC DREAM SCENARIO

My attempt at a realistic dream squad (it's not realistic really) at the end of the window would be as follows (25 players, probably still too many with no Europe):



I think it's going to be an exciting summer.

Like the look of that @Robioto my mate
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.

It is the left of a midfield three in a high-pressing style.

He is energetic, has good feet, can pick a pass, and can finish.

Not sure what is laughable about the suggestion.

He’s becoming a wonderful player but not being deemed good enough by 2 managers

Just think Sigurdsson is miles better than him at pretty much everything in any position in the midfield.

Admittedly I don't really see what others do in Vlasic.
