Slimani, Bowen and Nzonzi would be the ideal end to the window for me.

Iím assuming youíre expecting Samatta will be signed?

His highlights reel seems to be loads of misses.  Looks slightly more dynamic than Wesley, but just as good at missing.

Ffs give him a chance!

I agree.
He hasn't even signed yet! Give him a chance to sign. Then we can kick the s**t out of him when he doesn't score with every touch.

Totally not drawing any conclusions from it but I found myself think exactly the same thing watching that. Seemed to show a lot of misses.

I think that video is deliberately segmented to show how he gets into scoring positions (regularly) and then moves on to showing him burying them.

Drinkwater is the flaw in that plan.

He seems to be unless he can discover his Leicester City form Brian.

SJM will plug that particular gap when he's fit.

He got off the same flight as me from Dubai last night. I had the briefest of chats. Still has a protective boot on ankle and he is using a crutch. He reckons another couple of months. Iím guessing at least.

In fairness in the very next post on the thread I pointed out that the goals started at two minutes.  The video was deliberately edited that way, the first section was 'skills and the second section 'goals'

Never heard of him but one asset he has got is pace which we are short of at the moment.

A bit of a gamble but looks promising. Need another striker though.

We need another midfielder too.  I sincerely hope that Smith thinks we are covered now 'Drinky' has joined.  Go get Nzonzi and grab us some physicality.  Even with a new striker, we still have that midfield.
