    It is pretty bad. Not sure what his level is now. I'm trying to think which set up would best suit his skill set and I'm struggling.

    Europa league golden boot winner wasn’t he last season ? Think he’s a very underrated player personally

    I'm thinking a team that has a bigger share of possession so he'll be in the opposition box a lot. He's certainly not the man to press and harass and run the channels. But what team is like that in the PL at the moment?

    A return to Ligue 1 makes sense to me. I can't think of any Premier League club he would deserve to start regularly for now.

    EDIT: maybe, United?

    He was underrated in his Arsenal days imo.

    But now? not a chance. He is lucky to still be at a top 4 club.

    My ignorance of Ligue 1 means I don't know who he joins.

    Never scored enough and crumbled when it was the high stakes time. In Leicester's title winning season when we had a chance to win the league, he went on a goal scoring drought and failed to score in 15 league matches. He lacked that killer mentality.

    Giroud is still easily better than Everton tbh

    Doubt Giroud's available if the stories about Batshuayi are true.

    Yeah. We certainly need to sort shit out in January but by then it could be too late. Why we haven't fixed it in the last two years is ridiculous.

    Joao Pedro arriving in Jan though. No doubt he wont play for 3 months as he "isn't ready".

    Probably already got the contract to move to Liverpool next summer lined up!

    Feel sorry for the kid - coming into a relegation battle in the middle of our winter.

    And like Richarlison has played football this season in Brazil so like you won't be match fit...

    Be another Sarr type situation,

    Sarr played against Brazil today and did well from what I've read. Got fouled constantly after taking on players.

    How he's not been given more game time is ridiculous. A few of our fans have been criticising him already as he didn't do too much against Wolves. He has played 160 minutes ffs! He needs a run of games.

    Man Utd stories filling up the papers while there’s nothing going on.
    Jose never wanted Fred, just took him coz he thought that he was the only player they’d sign.
    Man Utd have ruled out a January binge.
    They’re going to get a record shirt deal after Chevrolet decided not to renew their interest.
    They’re going to go for Cavani for free in the summer.
    They are preparing a £130mill bid for Chilwell and Maddison.

    Tbh I reckon they’re just gonna clear up the Spurs fallout.

    Liverpool are apparently weighing up a £20,000,000 bid for Ben White, a young CB from us who has been tearing it up for Leeds this season.

    Would much rather keep hold of him & take £20,000,000+ for Duffy next summer instead. Think we see White as the successor to Dunk when we finally lose him.

    Yeah it’s a strange one, supposedly a replacement for Lovren if he goes. Suppose it depends on how quickly Klopp thinks it’ll take Hoever to be ready from the Prem. Also depends how close you are to the 8 homegrown player rule, especially if Clyne And/Or Lallana go next summer.

    You guys have about 15 centre half’s don’t you? I’d prefer Dan Burn tbh (for his cool name alone)

    I don't really think we need to sign anybody, it's more about keeping our best players & getting our injured ones back.

    Yeah, pretty much :laugh:

    We’ve got Dunk, Webster, Burn, Balogun & Duffy in the squad at the moment. White, Clarke & Ostigard out on loan and then a lad called Roberts coming through the youth team who made his debut and scored in the League Cup who has a ridiculously high ceiling too.

    Fully expect Balogun to be released, Duffy to be sold and White +1 to be promoted to the first team next year unless we lose Dunk or White

    Baring in mind how much an English ball playing defender goes for, it’s not a bad time to have an army of them :laugh:

    United beed about 6 players, but January generally isn't the time to buy new players. Maybe a loan until the end of the season for some striker coverage could come in.
