ive just read that Tosun had a better shot conversion rate than harry kane last season, give him more chances next season and he'll get decent figures next season. Capable of getting 15+

We donít really have creative players who are capable of feeding him though. Sig is more of a finisher of moves, Walcott similarly. Lookman looks like a talented individual player.
Iím hoping a new system and way of playing might bring it all together better, in the absence of buying in any creativity.

But the shite you're referring to played a large part in us finishing 8th, so are they really that shite? The names mentioned to be on the way out (or already out) all played significant parts in where we finished. Brands stated we are reducing numbers so removing 7 members of the first team squad and replacing them with 3 or 4 doesnt make us better. I appreciate its hypothetical as it cant really be judged until the window closes, but im starting to read more into his 'we need to sell to buy' comment
I can understand some of your argument but you must realise that the sales and purchases are when it is possible and not in any orderly fashion ,although that really would be nice.

I agree and thats why im worried about our transfer policy this season as we seem to be selling all of our first team players and leaving behind those that werent good enough to challenge them, weve already said we wont replace like for like with regards to numbers, so how are we going to strengthen our squad, which was pretty weak last season? I also dont know what other teams sells their leading goalscorer 2 seasons on a trot and doesnt have a replacement in before!


Huh? So far, we have only sold one regular starter from this past season: Rooney. And my personal opinion is that he clearly did not deserve to start as frequently as he did but got the nod b/c of who he is, rather than his remaining ability.

Every time I have seen Batshuayi he has been an absolute donkey. Did you see him try to kick the ball back into the net after Belgium scored last night?! Hilarious. He would be an overpriced flop here.

Pretty clearly untrue. His strike rate has been solid everywhere he has been. And he especially impressed for Dortmund last season, where he hit 7 in 10 league games.

Have never seen this guy, couldn’t tell you anything about him if I have.

Tried watching a YouTube vid and I’ll be honest it was exactly like funes mori’s - scoring headers and showing pashun.

No defensive actions or ball playing at all.
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.

What about a cheeky loan to buy offer to bring Ross Barkley back home?  I think he could thrive under Silva if fully fit.
