    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Interesting that we’re still apart with valuations 🤔

    Stefano Sturaro

    I really do not understand the criticism of Iborra and his price tag. It’s not like he decided what we paid for him. Also, the argument that there is no sell-on is kind of irrelevant now. That’s not the way that football works anymore, especially if we’re looking to Europe. Even so, if it was that way, there is no harm in buying players who are older and less of a sell-on value every once in a while. That will get off-set by other sales. I think Iborra brings a lot to the team. His calmness on the ball, his eye for a pass, his physical presence an eye for a goal are all excellent features of his and could be important to the way that Puel wants the team to play. I personally liked him more than Silva last season and really hope he stays. I can’t see that Sturaro would offer anything more than him should he sign.

    Stefano Sturaro

    Not convinced about this one at all to be honest. I think some believe that as he has come from Juventus, he must be a good player. Only 44 starts over the last three seasons for Juventus in all comps which averages out to just under 15 per season. I know we’re not able to attract the elite calibre of players from these European clubs but I don’t think Sturaro is the right kind of move forwards. Plus, we have a wealth of central midfielders already. I would much prefer to see Choudhury be given more chances that to spend €20m on an average player.

    Felipe Anderson

    If we can get Anderson and Maddison for approx £65m (£45m for Anderson, £20m for Maddison), I still think that represents great business. We'd be getting an extremely highly-skilled winger from Lazio and a No.10 with a lot of potential. Plus, with the Mahrez deal, we would about pay for the both of them and have Roberts too. People need to remember fees are extortionate now. If, and it's a big if, they all come off our options would be: Anderson, Maddison, Roberts, Gray, Albrighton, Diabate. To me, that is brilliant. No hesitation from me at all in splashing out.

    Felipe Anderson

    Would absolutely love for this to happen. A great talent and just from pure stats, has an excellent great end product. Unlikely to happen unfortunately though in my opinion.

    Realistic Starting XI and Aims for 18/19 season!

    D'Oh! Forgot to put Silva in the midfield three!

    Find it strange the amount of people omitting Iborra. I personally think we play better when he is in the side. If my ideal transfers would go through, would love the team to look like this. Schmeichel Pereira Maguire Evans Chilwell Iborra N'didi Maddison Iheanacho Vardy

    Jack Grealish

    Not sure if anyone has posted it but interesting to see Tony Xia’s (Villa chairman) statement. It practically says that they have to sell players due to FFP.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Think it’s fair to say that they would have been looking at potential replacements since he first said he wanted to leave. Who that is remains to be seen

    Layton Ndukwu

    He is going on a trial there for a couple of weeks in January. Similar to what Raul Uche did at Leuven earlier in the season.

    Agreed, he should have done better for a few goals this season. Those that come to mind are: Kante for Chelsea Depoitre for Hudds Salah yesterday Rashford at Old Trafford I agree he has dropped below his usual standards but the free kick yesterday cannot be blamed on him at all. It was a great strike that nestled into the far corner via a slight deflection - it was unsaveable. His distribution still needs improvement and also he seemed really reluctant to start attacks from throwing it out (except for that poor throw to Albrighton in the second half) However he is by far our best keeper and he will improve.

    I think it would be ridiculous selling Slimani to anyone, especially to a Premier League rival, this late in the window. He has some serious attributes that we can profit from it's just we have not been playing to them. I'm not the first to say it and certainly won't be the last but a decent cross into the box and he will most of the time stick it in the back of the net. Judging by the evidence against Arsenal, crossing is a crucial part of our game.

    Arsenal.. Away: pre match thread...

    Now would really be the best chance to play this lot at their place. They rarely ever start the season well - quietly optimistic.

    Leicester City vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach

    They were being served last season, was devastated to find that they were gone today. Although, I usually do sit in the East Stand so fingers crossed they're there come Brighton 🤞🏻

    I think the main shocker from tonight is balti pies no longer being available. I mean a cheeseburger just isn't the same.
