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.

yep, the ManU lot seem to think there's a serious question mark about his injury problems. Almost like us when we had complete radio silence over Richards.

Every player does with a long term injury - Richard Dunne was the best.

Loftus Cheek, another on the long list of lots of hype but not much substance.
File alongside Ross Berkeley

Whilst I wouldn't really want Will Hughes, I think he would offer more creativity than Hot Lips, although I think Hot Lips has a better shot/freekick delivery.

Still praying for Rashica....

I think the priority now has to be a central midfielder.  We'll be starting with Hourihane, who despite his improvment after lockdown isn't really good enough to start every week, and after that we're into the likes of Nakamba and Lansbury, neither of whom are nearly good enough.

yep agree with all this
although I still have hopes for Nakamba

and lose either of SJM or Luiz and you end up playing 2 of them.
I think Ramsey will feature at some point.

I see Dele Alli not even made the squad today for Spurs

Just putting this out there, but Riqui Puig looks like he's out of the picture at Barcelona. 21yo central midfielder, played a dozen games in the first team last season (and 20-odd for Barcelona B). If he's available at a sane price, I'd be all over him.

My view as well. I am hoping Grealish might move inside eventually and dictate games but not quite now.

this is where I think a flat 4 3 3 does not accommodate his potential
