Ok, that sounds a bit less concerning. Still something is nagging my head that he may have been involved to some extent in that club with his mate. It could well be me getting all defensive, having three girls is quite a worry. Especially as two of them are getting older and cocky little brats are on the scene nowadays!


I know where you're coming from Ian, as another dad with three daughters. Still though, innocent until proven guilty and all that. Look at Ched Evans for example, complete stitch up.

Got to love twitter... Some people... He looks great get him in based on the game tonight. Others... He's useless and miles off the pace.

Thought Id give it a watch with a view to keeping an eye on him. Quite tidy on the ball but hes not been involved too much. See what happens in the second half.

Id agree with your assessment.  Used the ball well but theres so much space its hard to judge.

Also, playing for Juventus in Serie A will not be like playing for Villa in the PL. I have no idea whether he's any good, but it won't be the same.

 Nothing really changed in the second half, nothing exciting and the least involved of any Juve midfielder. Difficult to judge on one game but Id stick to my thoughts of a few pages back that hes more of a ticking play over, get the ball from the centre halves and pass it 5 yards type.
He might be the reading the game type and getting in the right positions to stop attacks, which is no bad thing, but hes certainly not the Kante high energy DM which we need, hes just a taller Doug.

Don't get me wrong, I think we are 2 centre mids light in the squad, but this guy doesn't look like the combative number 6 we need to me. Maybe Naka is that though, and this guy will slot into the squad.

Surely every player comes with a recommendation from someone?

McLeish got a great recommendation from Fergie

We need an upgraded version of Marv ideally.  Marv is fine as a squad player slotting in here and there, but we need a better version of him in the starting XI, which Bissouma is to be fair.

Think how much more balanced we were starting to look with Marv. And I would argue hes at best a back up in a team looking to break the top 6. We need a much better version to take that next step.

If we sign a DM and Coutinho stays, barring losing any players, I'm starting to wonder what signings can be made in the Summer? After upgrading the promotion squad, we're now upgrading players we bought to replace them.

Competition for Cash, unless Kesler has a real breakthrough.  Genuine first team competition for Mings and then the possibility of selling Ings and bringing in a real top quality forward.

Guilbert may well be the man for that, and I rate Kesler too. Can see Gerrard liking Guilbert as he is good going forwards.

Agree we need a centre half capable of genuinely competing for a place with Mings / Konsa (think that will be Gomez) and ideally a better striker (think that will be Suarez).

Trez, Luiz, and Ings can probably all go to recoup some of the spend and wages.

Guilbert won't play for us again. I don't understand the candle held for him to be honest, he's a limited player.

FWIW, he's in the WhoScored Ligue 1 Team of the Season so far..
