Right, lets bag Benrahma tomorrow morning then.

Might just be me, but Benrahma has the N'Zogbias about him. Strikes me as a bit of a sulky wimp.

Definitely the wimp.

Benrahma has had an excellent season and plays in a position which we need. Iím still firmly in the Ďlets sign himí camp.

I don't get this bit either as he plays predominantly on the left, where Jack plays?

Benrahma looks so flimsy. I know its a bit of a cliche to say he's too small for the Premier League and theres lots of examples of small players being a success up here but I just think he'd be dominated too often.

Might have missed someone else posting this but Marvelous Nakamba to Trabzonspor in Turkey is being mooted.

I am in favour of this.

On loan, they can get fucked. We gain nothing from that. No money and his value goes down. Plus I think there is something to work with. Spending lots of money on a player then getting rid again before he's even settled, having recouped fuck all money, is O'Neill personified.

What I said in the Trez thread. He might be great but itís hard to tell when heís only played against Championship players. And in a game where he might have justified the hype he did next to nothing all game. Lots of farting not much shitting.

Jack would prefer to play more central so we could have both in the team quite comfortably

Id much prefer Jack on the left cutting in and too get an absolute rapid winger on the right.

I guess so Dave but I think we can't have a midfield three with SJM, Luiz and Jack as it's too lightweight.  I appreciate it's a great debate but I'd really like us to bring in a top central midfielder to play next to Luiz and SJM and keep Jack out on the left, where he does so much damage?  Maybe we move Jack to the right and still bring in Benrahma.  We need a better squad after all.

We'll get him for a really good price now, to the point where it won't be much of a 'gamble'. 

Notwithstanding tonight (where the whole XI bottled it), he's had a quality season. 27 goals in the last 2 seasons from the wide area. Offers us something that we certainly do not get from our current two main wingers, namely direct dribbling at pace, with a genuine ability to leave a defender on his arse.

So with Deano being there today is a double deal for Benrahma and Watkins now on the cards? Do we need to ďbraceĒ ourselves for transfer activity over the next few days?
