  1. Did he play The Dube for them? 😂
  2. We have some really talented young lads that could play a big part in our progression to the "next level". We'll need to be at least picking up one of the Europa League places to have a chance of holding on to the likes of Maguire, Chilwell, Ricardo, Ndidi, Maddison and Tielemans (assuming we sign him!). So I think we should really be aiming to break into the top 6. We have a lot of very talented youngsters on our books, who are destined to be playing European football within the next season or two, with or without us. Let's suck it up, pay the money for Tielemans and a goalscoring winger, and have a real good go at stealing one of those top 6 places from the big boys.
  3. Absolutely this. He'll want international football too, so needs regular game time to keep his place in the Belgium squad.
  4. Yeah I think you're right. I wouldn't feel confident bringing him in on a permanent deal this summer, but think he'd offer something different to our current wide players, and is a pretty low risk option. Wonder if Dortmund will want him to return as backup once Pulisic leaves though. He does look good. I wonder if we could do with a bit more experience among our attacking-minded players though.
  5. I'd like to see us make a loan offer for Schürrle. He's out of favour at Dortmund, and has experience in the Prem. We probably can't afford another "big" signing if we get Tielemans, so I think this would be a cheap way to give us better wide options. His experience could also be useful for Gray & Barnes. Wages are likely to be quite high, but as a short-term - and somewhat "safe" - option, I'd like to see it happen. Hasn't been incredible this season, but he'd have more attacking opportunities here under Rodgers than he's had at Fulham.
  6. I like how he just got his head down and worked hard to gain his place in the squad after his off-field issues. Shame about his social media blip after we announced Ricardo. Looked like he was gutted to lose his place in the starting lineup.
  7. Piatek from Genoa in Serie A. He's not really played enough games at the top level to have proven himself, but he's showing qualities of just the kind of striker that we need in the squad. Strong and good in the air, but also no slouch and a great finisher. Only 23, which suits Puel's apparent "youth first" philosophy. He'd be too much of a risk for a top 6 club, so I wouldn't be surprised to see us (and Everton/West Ham of course) interested in him. Offers something different to our current attackers, and could be a goal threat from Gray, Chilwell, Albrighton and Ricardo whipping the ball into the box. Only signed for Genoa in the summer, so unlikely to leave until the end of the season, but I'd love to see us linked with this bloke!
