Archer and Watkins would be formidable.
I really hope we get to see this very soon.

Think weíre going a bit early on Archer. Heís a young player who has made an impact in a couple of games. Not sure if itís a good idea to be putting the pressure on. Ings is an established and proven Premier League goal scorer who has scored for his country. We should be working on getting the combo working with Ollie first.

Yeah, I wonder if Archer was made available for loan, what sort of clubs would be in for him now - upper Ch'ship or lower ?

We need to sort Archer's contract before loaning him out anywhere.

I think there would be a lot of clubs in for him if we made him available for loan. After what's happened with Louie Barry, we would have to choose carefully.

Davis was going to Stoke on loan before he got injured (surprise). If he goes out on loan, I doubt there would send both him and Archer out. Archer has the added benefit that he can play as a wide forward.

Trouble is Mr. Gerrard seems to prefer Davis atm. I don't know what it is about him and Villa Managers. Maybe they like the theory of a Davis-type player if not the execution.

Thatís a bit of a presumption after one team selection? Maybe he wanted to watch Archer play a full game for Uí23 instead of judging him by his position on the first team bench.

The answer to that will be found out a little more depending on who plays for the U23s this evening.

Both for me.  I know Ollie looked a bit lost on Saturday, but I still think he can play the Mane / Salah role and score plenty of goals.  But If it was one or the other I think Ings would probably be the better link player in a narrow 3 up top.
Thatís how I see it too

Steven would have spent a lot of his 20s nuzzling up to Emule.

Maybe he's trying to shift one of them and make a few quid? Just a thought.

Well he's not gonna raise much in Davis' case  and Archer is a kid. Not the two players I'd pick to try and sell to raise funds. Looking at the contract situation, you have to say the only ones that would raise a bit with contracts nearing their end would be Trez who's crocked. AEG and Luis. EDIT. oh and Hause possibly if he's after a central defender as rumoured.

Ings needs to accept where he's at in his career now. He will still add a lot of value over the next 3 years but it's going to be impact, tactical and covering injuries. He's our jamie vardy and we will at some point need him. It will work well for us and him to see out his days with us.
