Duran offsets Archer. If you can't see that then there's no point carrying on the conversation.

Emery himself said Duran isn’t going to be ready for a while.

He’s a 19 year old moving to a new country from the MLS.

The selling of Ings is the mystery, whether you rate him or not he was our top goalscorer and could still be very useful coming on in games

Selling him for 12m + this & that is chicken feed in todays business so maybe we have got something in mind before the end of the window

Most of the others we are letting go have been neither use nor ornament and will affect the team by zero amount

Considering how well the club did waiting for the right player with Kamara, I'm happy to give them the benefit of the doubt and wait on a centre forward, which they are clearly looking for.

There's no point on splurging a load of money on shite. Just because they're expensive, doesn't make them any good. See Everton. We're well versed in that behaviour too. Steady as she goes, strike when the right player becomes available. Stick to that method and we'll move forward.

Yeah but not splashing cash on shite is one thing, not creating the need to do so in the first place is another. We've got one striker, because we sold one and sent the other on loan, that's not enough.

It is a problem we created.

We have two strikers. If you're using Archer as a stick to beat the club, then Duran is a 15m centre forward who offsets this. Ings needs replacing, but this is where we need to be disciplined and not blow 30m again on someone who doesn't fit. We have enough with Bailey. It's not ideal, but we're building, so let's not get hysterical and do it right.

The ‘stick to beat club’ is not having a replacement already lined up before selling Ings and sending out third option out on loan.
Ings didn’t have to be sold.

It’s a bit early to be getting upset about transfers.

And he said Archer isn't going to be ready for a while by loaning him out. One for one.

Ings needs replacing.

Olympique Marseille have scheduled medical tests for Azzedine Ounahi on Sunday morning — after deal sealed for €8m fee plus €2m, contract 2027.
So lets hope this means Guendouzi is on his way to B6.

Was he subbed during half-time? If not, could it be an injury?

Played poorly, looked distracted, some reporter commented re transfer, uninterested and he didn’t want to play to get injured (translated I think)

Of the players that have departed, they've hardly had an appearance between them, barring Ings. He's the one we absolutely should be replacing.

We've replaced Augustinsson with Moreno - upgrade.
Guilbert hasn't had a look in, so no loss.
Sanson has hardly played in all the time he's been here.
Archer hasn't played and at this stage of his career needs minutes. I suspect Emery considers him too similar to Watkins right now. Duran of course has more experience and is younger and widely regarded as a top prospect.
Bednarek was cover and didn't play, and Carlos is back imminently in any event.

In summary, we need a striker. A midfielder and or wide player would help the depth of the squad.

I believe we'll have two new faces in this month.

Player knows he's going and doesn't want to play, who would? any kind of injury could scupper the whole deal.

I don't Carlos is due back that soon is he, Emery said a few days ago it's going to be "a month or two". He's not even training with the first team yet.

Honest question….would you turn down £15m return of your own money of an outlay of £25m when it hadn’t tuned out great…….I thought not…

It’s like all those who think Lerner came in to lose money like he did…and he did! Do you think he meant to….??

West Ham want Guendouzi now apparently.
Agent talk as the deal with us gets close to closure ...
