    What's Kai Havertz like? Never seen him play before but I bought him on FM and he turns into a clone of Özil.

    Do we ever insert buy back clauses when we sell players? Think it would be worth doing with players like Iwobi and Chambers if we can use the funds to bring in better players. Think Iwobi could have a good World Cup, so maybe a loan would be better for him but I don’t think he’s good enough at the minute.

    Would also love us to start taking a gamble on younger players again. Seeing the stories about Mbappe etc, maybe just take the risk next time we see a player like that. We need to sign three or four players that improve the starting line up before doing that though. Gk, Cb and a defensive midfielder are a must and so is a winger for me. We need a goal scoring winger, with pace. Özil and Mkhi are great players but neither of them are goal scorers really; particularly Özil. The reliance on Aubameyang and Lacazette is too much at the minute.

    I’m quietly confident about the summer transfer window though, I don’t know if it’s false hope or not. Even if Wenger is in charge, I’m not sure how much control the manager will have over transfers now. Previously we would never have signed a player like PEA in January even if a big player had left.

    Players I’d sell:
    Mustafi - £25m? (Good WC please!)
    Lucas Perez - £10m
    Joel Campbell - £7m
    Akpom - £3m
    Ospina - £5m
    Chambers - £20m (buy back clause?)
    Holding - £10m, again a loan is a possibility but I don’t think he’ll ever be good enough. Can’t defend in a 1 vs 1 situation.
    Welbeck- £15m
    Elneny - £10m
    Martinez- £4m
    Cazorla - pay as you play contract
    Per - Retiring
    Iwobi - Not sure on what his value would be. Thoughts?

    On the fence about Xhaka, I do think he
    is a decent player but he isn’t good enough to build a team around. If selling him allows us to buy a pure dm like Fabinho, I’d happily do it.

    Bellerin - Would only consider selling if a team offers £60m or more. Would replace him with Sidibe.
    MUST offer Wilshere/Ramsey new contracts.

    Think we could be looking at anywhere from potentially about £70m to £120m (excluding Xhaka & Iwobi) depending on how well they play for the rest of the season and how they do at the World Cup.

    Lafont - £15m. Sensible choice, not convinced by the Bundesliga keepers we’ve been linked with or Butland. Wouldn’t mind Hradecky over Horn & Leno though. Allisson would be £50m plus and we aren’t spending that much on a keeper.
    Koulibaly - £55m, would compliment Koscileny very well.
    Diallo/Pavard - £12m
    Fabinho - £45m, ambitious target but we need someone of that mould. Doucoure, Ndidi, Zakaria and Pereira are other options and would all be cheaper. With the exception of Ndidi.
    Meyer - Free
    Bailey - £50m, the one player I really hope we go after. In terms of premier league clubs I think Chelsea are probably the only other team that will want him.

    Lafont, Cech
    Bellerin, AMN
    Koscielny, Mavropanos/
    Koulibaly, Pavard/Diallo
    Nacho, Kolasinac, AMN
    New DM, Xhaka?
    Ramsey, Wilshere
    Meyer, AMN
    Mkhi, Nelson
    Özil, Jeff
    Auba, Lacazette, Nketiah

    That would be the ideal 23 man squad for me. I think we could have the funds to do it as well.

    Maybe only one of Xhaka/Meyer.

    Loan: Da silva and willock.

    If we lose Ramsey this summer, I'd be gutted.

    Only way to make up for his loss is to sign Milinković-Savić and also get rid of Xhaka.

    If we didn't have two strikers already, I'd have considered making a move for Rashford in the summer, because he's fallen down the pecking order at Manure and I really like the kid.

    Hoping we continue with the 4-3-3 formation we had yesterday. If so, I'd do this...

    Add somebody like Fekir, who would be perfect in a front three rotation.


    Then loan Nketiah and Nelson for a season or two.

    Still need to add another midfielder too. Somebody like Ndidi/Zakaria/Fabinho. Midfield rotation would then be:


    Just keep up with the three in midfield and build our tactical plans around that. I think it works best with the players we have and with how we push the fullbacks forward.

    Of course, we still need a new goalkeeper and reconstruct the central defense.

    Great stuff, could arguably do with another fullback too; someone with great stamina and pace to give width. AMN looks a really good option at fullback too but I'd say we still need another. I'm sure Sven can come up with something.

    How has Tom Davies that at Everton progressed this season? I love his style.

    Also think we would still benefit from a Jorginho type player. If you can't have Pjanic, and sadly we can't, then Jorginho is basically the next best thing. He knows the 4-3-3 like the back of his hand and he'd ensure we start dictating games from midfield again.

    Alisson, Koulibaly & Jorginho would be unreal and bring us much closer to a Champions League outfit. Fekir would be the icing on the cake.

    I wouldn't mind selling Elneny and adding Jourginho in his place. Still think we need a true, imposing ball-winner in midfield though.

    Hell, I'd even take Meyer if we can't get Jourginho.

    Think I’d rather we played 4231 if I’m honest, get Özil back where he belongs.

    Bailey - Özil -Mkhi
    Fabinho - Ramsey
    Nacho- Koulibaly - Koscielny - Bellerin

    Then a bench of:


    Safe to assume 1-2 players will always be injured so there would be room on the bench for the likes Nelson, Nketiah and Jeff.

    Not sure what happened to the Starlets linked thread but this is interesting:

    Look at him :lol::

    He ruined that poor kid :lol:

    I have to say, I'm quizzical about him actually being 12. That physique is absurd for that age. You could have told me he was 20 and I wouldn't question you.

    78 kilos as well apparently :eek: reminds me of those pictures of Lukaku as a 12 year old when he towered over everyone as well

    Why the **** is he still playing with 12 year olds when he's so freakishly developed for his age? Just move him up to play against 15-16 year olds so they can at least trouble him physically in some way.

    To be fair, he does have the face of a 12 year old, unlike that lad at Dortmund, Youssoufa Moukoko


    I have this weird fantasy which revolves around watching Yaya Toure playing in the women's world cup. So it'd just be him and the goalkeeper. I'd imagine the result would be something similar to the above.

    You'd have to offer him some cake to get him to take part.
