The hugh press would disrupt it.

Could be our nemesis.

A collective effort wouldn't be futile.

It's about having premier league quality options that keeps everybody on their toes. Sanson does this with McGinn & Barkley.

Wesley is not going to be ready anytime soon, so an alternative to Davies would be the priority now. Allowing Davies out on loan.

With time we'll have better defensive options to Engels, Hause, Elmo, Guilbert & Taylor.

Hause did well when he filled in though.

The first four could well be adequate slotting in one or two at a time into the much better team we have now. Not so confident about Taylor but maybe him too.

Not sure if this has already been posted from around a week ago, but Callum Rowe is off to Hereford on loan and Dominic Revan has been loaned to Weymouth.

They both played a full 90 minutes yesterday.
Which is why they went out - to get minutes playing against grown ups.

Eloise, isn't she the girl in HR ?
Olise!!

Watched a bit of the Reading game today, Olise was unused sub so not sure what's happened there. About to be sold or coming back from an injury?

So we think Barkley is for the chop? I thought he was more a McGinn/Luiz sort of player.

Luiz might not be here in six months so think it's insurance for that.

It's nice to sign a good player without throwing him straight into the team and hailing him as a saviour e.g. Drinkwater last January who constantly started despite being useless.

He can learn the language and contribute with sub cameos and odd starts if say McGinn gets to 10 yellows and then be really raring to go from August. Hopefully Doug will still be here to make that area even stronger.

I think if Barkley isn't signed full time it's more likely you'd see Sanson sit in the middle two and we push SJM more forward to break into the box as he was doing when we first came up.

Seeing as Barca are going bust, should we put a Bid in for Messi?

They can't afford his wages.

1.3bn in debt and with 700m needed to be paid back pronto.

Would still like to see another forward come in.

But in the current climate, that's prob expecting a lot.  With the Sanson deal alone we'll have done more business than most other PL clubs.

John Terry mentioned when we signed Traore that he can play wide and through the centre, so that's prob our contingency if anything happens to Ollie. It's not ideal, but since Jan 2019, these owners have got the bulk of our transfer business right.
