Milivojevic would be a good pick up imo. Was on the bench for Palace yesterday so not sure whether he's carrying an injury or out of favour but he's a proven premier league DM who I imagine they'd sell for 15m.

Slightly more realistic than my pick! Yeah, he'd be a good signing.

Without checking, is Mili not well into his 30s?

Seems to be a nice lad judging by his work with the old folks on the All or Nothing documentary. I can't see Mourinho letting him go though.

I'm talking about Winks btw!

29 years young. Unless we think anyone over 25 now is the new Satan. Or Drinkwater.

Fine by me. He's worked hard under a disciplined boss like Woy.

Agreed. If we could get him for anywhere near that figure it would be rude not to.   Him or Capoue could come straight in and hit the ground running. Both strong, physical presences in the centre of the park with a bit of a nasty streak.  We need that. Both would be fine until the scouting system finds younger and better.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to add a bit of experience and leadership to the middle of the park. We were lacking that at times last season, like Arsenal away.

No problems with Hourihane as a squad player. 

Barring injury, If he features in less games than he did last year it will mean we have improved.

If Angela features for any length of time it'll mean we have problems.

Quality player but he is Palace captain isn't he? My bet was he was carrying an injury to not be starting.

Tuanzebe gets better the more time he's injured/benched which seems to be all the time. I'd rather Engels was bjorn again and given a second chance.
Every player does with a long term injury - Richard Dunne was the best.
Ahem, Wesley.

I think they said on MOTD that he returned from a quarantined country so missed weeks of pre-season training.

Could be something in that although he did start in league cup at Bournemouth.

Put it this way if McGinn is on the bench against a top 6 team this season some on here will probably put posts that he's leaving in January.

Fabian Schar is another I'd look at signing, was Newcastle's best CB under Benitez. Bruce might have a rethink after the way they defended today.
