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

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.

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

I hope this is true.

Watched the first 3 episodes of the Spurs thing on Amazon, Alli comes across as at least being able to string a sentence together compared to some of the others, and seems quite a nice kid. Going to United isn't going to solve his issues though, he needs a manager that is going to be making him the centre of the side.

Having watched the same number of episodes he comes across as a lazy shit.

Tell you who I did like though, and didn't expect to - Harry Winks. Came across as a nice, down-to-earth kid in the bits about him playing his way up through the ranks at the club, getting an international cap and taking part in the community scheme at the care home. Shouldn't be anywhere near the England squad mind, but that's not his fault.
