Still need a kick arse holding/sweeper midfielder.   The most crucial of the summer signings.

Delph? Id take him back for sure.

Would his heart be in it though and would he see it as a comedown after playing Champions League Football, helping them win the league and playing for England?

Definitely no to any ageing player looking for one last fat contract.

Delph would be competition for Mcginn not the holding player we're looking for.

He was shit for England last week. Often a player had made a run into a good position and instead of passing it quickly, Delph fainted to pass and to turn into trouble every time.
Its his one trick and no one bought it.
Fuck him.

Just going to post the same. Hes not the player for that role even if it wasnt a terrible idea for many other reasons. We need a younger, better Whelan basically.

No Delph - heading towards 30, not gonna get any better, no goodwill with the fans and doubt he has any hunger left

Apologies if already discussed - saw Barbet has signed for QPR of all clubs ... surely on a free transfer he'd have been worth a punt??

Spurs tried to take advantage of our situation and Grand Master Negotiator Levy royally fucked it up. Not only will they very likely never get him now I hope Jack bags a brace while setting up the other 3 in romp on the opening day. Fuck Spurs.

Amen

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

George Boateng was the best player we have had in that role for years

I agree. I remember being at Anfield when Gerrard made his leg bend the wrong way but it didn't break. Boating was hard as nails and totally reliable.

See also Gazza smashing him in the face with an elbow during the Valentines Day massacre at Boro in 2000 and coming off the worse for it.

Too early to worry about how far we have fallen if we can't compete with the QPRs of this world?

Delph can fuck himself. No.
