When looking at Tarkowski I am minded to think of the impact Craig Dawson has had on West Ham. On the face of it nothing special but very solid lots of nous and scores the odd goal. If he can't pass out from the back (which everyone has assumed because that wasn't the way Burnley played - it may be he is more than capable) he'd be fine as long as he can pass it 15 yards to Kamara or Bissouma

The flip side of the “Burnley told him not to pass it” argument is that Burnley also played a solid 442 so he was also very well protected by the midfield in front of him compared to most teams.

Not against it, if Gerrard is certain he is an upgrade, but its a lot of money for a squad player.  I’d stick with what we have in defence and look to upgrade next summer.  Basically spend the same but spread across less players.

I dont think we can stick to what we have at centre back, Konsa is out injured for who knows how long and as much as ive thought an awful lot of Konsa, he was woefully out of form for much of the second half of the season. I feel sentimental about Hause as i do with all the players that helped to get us promoted, but he’s not going to help us move on from mid table. That leaves us with Mings and Chambers going into the season.

I think Gerrard  would be culpable if he left us in that position.
I dont know if Tarkowski is the answer, seems a solid defender, but doesnt seem a ball playing cb, maybe we’re looking at him and another if Hause moves on and Konsa is sidelined.

I admit, I’d completely forgotten Konsa was injured but isn’t that why we signed Chambers.  With the World Cup Konsa shouldn’t miss too many games.

Konsa is out til end of August I thought,possibly earlier.

Anyway, newest link is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain....

If fit, I think he'd be an excellent addition.

He wouldn't be, and he wouldn't be. He isn't even my favourite AOC.

Would find Oxygen-Chamber a bit of a strange one for the two variations of formation we’ve seen from Gerrard thus far. He can be defensively naive which would rule out an 8 position and I certainly wouldn’t think he was a 10 or wide attacking player any more. He’s also 29 in August although he’s played more than I thought over the past two seasons, clocking in 46 games in all comps. Plus hefty wages. It would be a no from me, Clive.

I don't think Abraham would make the world sit up and take notice. Not convinced he is better than what we already have. I want a megastar up front please.

Pretty much every football team in the world wants one of those!!  Not sure we are in a position to attract a real top drawer striker at the moment given the paucity of them.

If we land half of the names we're being linked with and spend half the money on fees and wages that is being suggested, I would hope we would not be flirting with relegation next season.

Challenging for Europe or bust.

The Manager, DOF and Chief Exec won't be getting any doggy's chances after this window. Make or break.
