    What's to stop him from doing both? He could focus on setting up the defensive blueprint whilst hiring one of our old boys with a knack for exceptional play in the final third.

    The most crucial thing though would be building from the back. What I'd give for a back five like the one Graham built :(

    We have played like that many times before , also with Özil and Ramsey there . In fact that is how we play best .

    I screamed for us to buy him when he was at Fulham.

    Pretty sure it was because of his relationship with Wenger he left, apparently they're not on good terms anymore.
    People seem to overlook just how brilliant Szczesny was at Roma, he was keeping Alisson on the bench, a keeper alot of this forum is now wishlisting.
    It's a sad situation that we sold one of Europes best keepers because of a manager that we're now all desperate to get rid of 8 months later. :(

    Alisson was signed in 2016 and was an understudy for Szczesny, so of course he kept him on the bench. Otherwise they wouldn't have prolonged the loan for another year.
    Apparently Roma is operating on a tight budget, which is why they trusted the brazilian and didn't pull out the money for our guy.

    One of our missing pieces in midfield.

    It had to be personal between him and Wenger. It can be the only explanation

    Alisson was signed as competition, he was highly rated when he went to Roma, and Szczesny never put a foot wrong for them to drop him.
    Yes Roma had the option to buy but couldn't afford him and already had Alisson, so Juve paid the fee instead and now have him as Buffons successor.
    Strange that you're making comments on a player you admitted that you haven't watched much since he left us, but still think " he's a clown " :rolleyes:

    Alisson wasn't signed as competition. He was signed as a successor, considering that Roma weren't going to spend the money on Szczesny.
    I replied to another comment after that and said that I'll wait to see how he fares after Buffon retires, but for us he was a clown with very erratic decision making and if that's changed over the past couple of years, then I tip my hat to him.

    Szczesny has gained more plaudits here for doing nothing than almost any player I've seen.

    Man Utd look like choking this. They can't get going at all. One goal for the Spaniards will blow this up.
