I can't see Guilbert wanting to come back so we'll need to cash in in the summer.

SG has said everyone has a clean slate - so why not. A decent Villa team in the prem is better than anything in Ligue 1

Well for a start Cash will almost certainly be first choice, at least at first.  So he's not going to extend his contract when gametime may still be limited.  And for us, we're better off taking c5m now than nothing in a year.

I'd be asking SJM to have a word with Kieran Tierney and then asking Arsenal to name their price.

He's a bit of a sicknote though Tierney. Quality when fit, but not reliably healthy.

For me we need a creative player in Jan, that can slot into the narrow 10 role, and a midfielder that is a step up in what we have in the centre. Not sure they will be available in Jan, but they are what we need. Players that can see a pass and help us retain the ball better in tight situations.

The possession thing starts from the back though

Im sorry but I know we all love Mings and Konsa but if Gerard wants to play out from the back as good as defenders as they are hes not going to be doing it with that pairing

I think we could do with someone to be 1 of these 2 "10" gerrard plays - we could do with that particularly seeming that Bert and Bailey are taking this season off.

Tierney is the best left back in the League, but I can't see Arsenal letting him go (or him wanting to come to us).

Far better than them, yes. Tierney has been Scotland's best player over the last year. Shame all our best players are left backs

Can't imagine Gerrard would look at Tierney with his system at Rangers. Even when he's fit he doesn't provide assists or scores very often.

Really? He's always flying down the left for Arsenal and getting crosses in. With all the midfielders tucked inside we need full backs who can get up and down so Cash can do it pretty well on one side, less so Targett.

Think we'll look abroad for a LB.

According to the stats I've seen

Tierney 21/22 No goals no assists  Targett 1 goal 1 assist
            20/21 1 goal 4 assists                  0 goal 4 assists
             19/20 1 goal 2 assists                 1 goal 3 assists

Doesn't seem a massive improvement on Targett

I think that both full backs will be replaced unless they decide that one of our youngsters will be in the team in 2023. I think that Cash crossing of the ball in the last two matches have been really poorly.
