  1. Its been reported now that we've given up looking for a replacement and Giroud is staying
  2. Why don't we just promote Giroud to 2nd choice. He offers more to the team than Michy and we have obviously left it to late in the window. Instead of panic buying let Giroud play his way into the team.
  3. I think there's a few fingers pointing at various different people tonight but this has been a long time coming. The kids are not good enough yet but some of them have been our star performers this season. 3 of them played in the championship last year. My finger is pointing at our recruitment over the last few years. Our squad is mentality weak, lacks creativity, strength and personality. Our only world class player is playing in a position to hide the limations of jorginho. We lost huge players over the years in Hazard, Costa, Matic, Fabregas, Terry, Cahill and Cortouis and replaced some of them with players who have either been sent back on loan or sold for a cut price fee. When it has been reinvested has there been a time where we have improved on a player? We've been steadily declining since contes first season and if it wasn't for the brilliance of hazard it would of been seen sooner. Yes we have had a ban but Eden was the only one out of that list we couldn't replace. I feel for Frank because this is the weakest squad we had in years especially looking at the senior players. The youth were a bright spark which hid our weaknesses and naturally they have going through a tough spell. Now we are in the same old situation where we are in January potentially looking for short term solutions to fix problems that were created by our recruitment in the first place.

    The Standard reported he's on crazy wages and he would need to take a big pay cut. If we kept him on the same wages as he is now at PSG for 18months it would cost us around 50 million all together including a fee.

    He's probably looking at one last big pay cheque and a decent length of contract. I don't see us giving him either of those.
  6. We should be looking at his international team mate Andrea Belotti. We were heavily linked with him when we wanted Morata and he went off the boil a little after an injury, he's back in form again now and hes much more than a goalscorer to their team. Its pretty obvious Werner is the number 1 target it but I fear the club will lose out on him because he's outscoring Lewandowski right now and if a club like Madrid or even Liverpool come calling in the summer I don't think we can compete unless we offer him obscene wages. Frank has mentioned no knee-jerk signings but it's tough in January because if you want a quality player you have to give clubs an offer they cant refuse and its unlikely any big club will sell their main assets. So you have to look at players like Belotti, Zaha or Dembele and pay over the odds so their teams can reinvest and improve their squads. Leciester selling Harry Maguire for a record fee turned out to be a good piece of business on their part even though he was seen as a important member of their squad. Though I worry that we may have left it too late because we haven't given teams much time to find replacements. So who knows what will happen, we will probably end up taking an out of form player on loan again like we did we Higuain as I dont see the club spending a huge amount of money until the summer.
  7. What I see happening. Ake and one of Werner/Dembele in January. Sancho for the summer. Pedro, Giroud and one of Alonso/Emerson sold with Ake in mind as cover for LB.
  8. Think we need a little perspective. First game of the season against Utd is tough fixture especially since they have a lot to prove this season. We were never going to come out flying, this team needs a few months to find it's rhythm and build confidence. Though I did think the initial line up was a little odd, Pulisic should of started as he's one of the fittest out there in terms of match fitness and a pivot of Jorginho and Kovavic against that team was suicide. Kante surely could of had 60 minutes in him. We needed that bit of strength and security in the middle of the park. It will be interesting to see how Frank sets up against Liverpool and how he changes his approach. I fear for us if we don't learn from our mistakes. Leicester won't be a walk in the park either.

    Pretty much this. We have no choice but to keep him around.
  10. If there's one person I'd like to replace Hazard this season it's Dybala. Not in terms of positional replacement but someone who has the ability to play as a deep forward and link up with play. Having a front 3 or CHO Dybala Pulisic would be quite exciting and I think he would adapt well to Sarris system. I've always found our strikers just getting lost in play this season. They have to come deep looking for it as we just go side to side and only on a few occasions we are pretty direct. With Alergri going this season I guess he's more likely to stay but I imagine he would be a perfect Griezman replacement also.
  11. Utd after Zouma according to L'Equipe.
  12. Michy to Valencia is picking up some pace. Real shame if that happens, I think he can be our main man this season. Do we get someone in to replace him or are we looking at Morata, Giroud and Tammy this season?
  13. Can only really see this happening if Willian leaves. If Willian stays and Michy leaves then maybe we will be after a striker instead. I want Morata to succeed here but I'd be more confident with Michy leading the line but I found it worrying that he didn't get pre-season minutes last night.
  14. Rumours Bakayoko has been approached by AC Milan for a loan with an option to buy.
