    Oscar is a top 3 talent in the world IMO. The way he moves the ball around, shifts play and keeps his team ticking is astoundingly impressive. He's a real playmaker but he also has a wonderful shot on his right foot. He's much, much better than Lucas Moura who looks a very overrated trickpony who doesn't deserve the reported 30-40 million price tags by a long stretch. Oscar is a completely different story though. He's a joy to watch.

    A guy who i'd kind of forgotten about but have mentioned a few times - Keisuke Honda. I'm impressed anytime i see him and he's also ridiculously versatile. Reckon he will be a bargain for someone this summer and he seems to be going under the radar of the big guns.

    Honda can 'see things ' on the pitch that most players can't . He would definitely enhance our midfield only question mark would be the physicality of the league .

    Would love Affelay .Surprised though that Ben Arfa has not been linked with a move away from Newcastle , would love him here.

    Not by his fault actually. He was utterly brilliant for us till he got injured. After that Almunia stepped back in and was **** and got mysterious injury so Szczesny came in and never looked back.

    LOL @ People saying Afellay a decent bench option. He is better than Theo and will start every match if he joins.

    I think it's more a playmaker type. He has a good dribble and some vision. Nothing Fabregas like but very decent as an AMC and also a good player for the AML.

    Affelay wont cost that much cause he isnt a starter for barca.

    I missed the USA match but saw Oscar for the first time verse Denmark last week and he certainly caught the eye. He seems to have that Wilshere-like ability on the ball to turn away from his marker sharply, creating space for himself. Looks to be very lightweight though.

    I like I like.

    I would switch Poldi and Theo (yes Id interrupt the Sagna-Theo partnership) and put them both on their strong legs. The CM you speak of should be M'Vila.

    Afellay, M'Vila, Giroud and perhaps Vertonghen could give us good depth for the season.

    Looks like he got a very good brain, some of his plays makes me think of Cesc. Very intersting playmaker in the making.

    Certainly looks a talent. Shades of Cesc and Iniesta about him. I'll keep an eye out for him.

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Szczesny
    Sagna - - - Mertesacker - - - Koscielny
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Gibbs
    - - - - - - - - - - Arteta - - - - - - Vidal
    Robben - - - - - - - - Kagawa - - - - - Podolski
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - Van Persie

    Interesting to think that's only three signings and a tweaking tactically.

    Gibbs in a dream team :shock: I'd settle happily enough for M'Villa, A. Johnson and Affelay instead of Vidal, Robben and Kagawa plus we could realistically get all 3 but will bid for none. Santos at LB.

    He's clearly got a lot of potential, and I'd be more than happy to see him flourish alongside several other experienced top class players.

    It would be the best enviornment to allow his development (Particularly his positional play). Not that I need to mention it, but his brilliant attacking game would certainly work as a supporting player in such a system.

    As others have mentioned above: Oscar. Amazing talent. Currently having another good game for Brazil against Mexico.

    First time I've seen him, and I agree, he does have a bit of Cesc about him, he makes almost identical runs.

    I'd sign these Spanish lads.

    Bruno Soriano
    Benat Exteberria

    Any Eredivisie experts out there who can give the low down on Dries Mertens?

    Mind boggling numbers the last 2 seasons. Quite intrigued, but Youtube can only tell you so much.

    He's pretty good but I think that he's a pretty predictable player. Always cuts inside. Don't think that he's good enough for us. He does well against the poor sides in the Eredivisie but he isn't as dominant as the majority think. A club from the European sub top is probably his ceiling.

    All those players on the out list are on massive wages as well.
    Probably 15m a year between them. That is a big saving.

    I would keep Benayoun.
    Though he was ok for a loan player.
    Agree with the rest.
