Another player has arrived that can “help Özil” :lol: First it was a world class striker would get the best out of him, then he needed pacy wide players and now Partey can help him by doing the dirty work. I’d be shocked if he’s not one of the two non-HG left out of the squad. Mustafi or Sokratis will probably be one of the other two.

Chambers is homegrown so you don't need to register him. I think it'll be Özil and one of Saliba/Mari/Martinelli. They can be re-registered back in January once we sell someone.
Martinelli doesn’t need to be registered either for the same reason I think.

It’s very tricky to think which two to exclude.
Disturbing to think that we might not even register our second highest paid player. I’m still hoping for an Özil redemption arc so I hope not.

My vote would be on Sokratis and Soares.
We don’t need four rightbacks (Chambers can play there if desperate).

Don't you have to be at an English club for 3 years to be Homegrown?

The thing is Özil is gone next June no matter what so in terms of building the team going forward there’s no point including him.

We still lack a proper 9 and an attacking midfielder. Could argue we should be upgrading on Xhaka too and perhaps another CB. Other than that the squad is looking in decent shape in terms of the first XI and subs. Should mount a top 4 challenge.

Think Partey is a great upgrade on Xhaka, and I hope we use internal resources like Martinelli and ESR to fill the attacking positions, although that won't happen this season but we are in a great position for the next one

Some people really don't understand the homegrown rules.

Saliba and Martinelli dont have to be registered because theyre under 21. Chambers will be registered as homegrown.

Leno, Runnarrson
Cedric, Kolasinac, Tierney
Sokratis, Mustafi, Mari, Luiz, Gabriel
Xhaka, Partey, Ceballos, Elneny, Özil
Willian, Pepe
Auba, Laca

And then homegrowns

Macey
Bellerin
Chambers, Holding
Maitland Niles

The rest of the squad are u21 and dont have to be registered. So two from the first section have to be dropped.

You'd have to say it will likely be Sokratis and Mustafi. Or one of those and Özil.

Mari should be dropped alongside socratis, even saw the point in signing Pablo Mari in the first place

Trying to follow this, so it’s definitely 2 senior players that could potentially miss out being named in the squad?

Özil and Sokratis surely?

Yeah. Players can still move to certain countries as well I believe. Portugal/Netherlands and maybe even Turkey?

But yes definitely two senior Non HG players that wont be part of the premier league squad.

The not accepting a deal for Sokrati thing is really, really baffling. What could actually be the reasoning?
PSG?
I doubt that's even a real link. Doubt they need a cb. Hopefully we can move him on to some country which has its window open

I'm confident papa will move out
No idea who else we can move out though.

Not really (according to Sky')

Can clubs do any business afterwards?

Domestically, yes - in certain situations.

Following consultation with the EFL - and because FIFA allows a summer transfer window to run for up to 12 weeks - an extra domestic window in England will run from October 5 to 5pm on October 16.

That means two Deadline Days essentially this window.

But Premier League clubs will only be able to trade with EFL clubs - either loans or permanent registrations - during the additional period.

No transfers can take place between Premier League clubs or with foreign clubs. Top-flight clubs must complete their main business and any international deals by October 5.

Yeah, that makes sense, probably was bullshit link.

Sokratis to Portugal or Turkey? I guess Turkey would make sense.
