We need someone more physically imposing in there. McGinn and Grealish are fantastic players but neither of them is intimidating and I think having a bit of presence in the midfield is important in the premier league, especially if we want to get the fullbacks forward and have the midfield available to cover behind them. The problem is, big strong central midfielders who have good technical skills and can pick a pass tend to get really expensive. Ndombele, for example, looks like a fantastic prospect to fill the role but he's already being talked about as a 65m player on the back of 18months of good form since  he was signed for 8m, it's a crazy market and that position in particular has become hard to fill for less that 25-30m

Maybe someone like Jonjo Shelvey, although I suspect we will cast a wider net and show a bit more imagination than him.

Delph can fuck himself. No.

My opinion is that Delph can do a typical Delph and fuck himself, then change his mind and not fuck himself and then change his mind again and fuck himself.

Yoann Barbet - Brentford centre-half, 26, old favourite of Smith's.

Sort of, just less shit and less of a complete twat. I really don't get waht people see in him, he is, for me, a marginal upgrade on Lansbury who struggled to get on our bench last year.

20m seems a little steep, to say the least. He looks like a good back-up player to someone in DMF with a little more experience.

20m?  Fucking hell Brugge must either have been fucking brilliant last year or have some very compromising photos of someone on our recruitment team.

I honestly doubt they are but Rodgers wanted to sign him for Celtic so it's a very easy link for a lazy journalist to make.

We can do better than Shelvey but he's way better than just a marginal upgrade on Lansbury, who has done the square root of fuck all for us.
