I've not been in this forum all to long to understand but would I be right in believing seanfromenerby is full of crap?

 

It's spelt seanfromenemaby. :thumbup:

Ziyech may be the single most persistent fantasy I’ve seen on FT.

Serious lack of names on this one. 

 

I suspect we'll get nobody.

We already did, Perez.

 

But foxestalk being foxestalk refuse to accept that and still compares being Leicester City manager to playing football manager

To be fair there's been lots of reports Perez has been brought in as a utility forward and competition for Vardy and that we are still after a winger and a central midfielder.

You mean the reason we won the league wasn’t because we quit the game and started it up again every time we lost?

I hope we are. It may be an unpopular opinion but we need to replace Albrighton. We need that wide forward type player. Albrighton is a good old fashioned winger/wide midfielder, Beckham type winger, but you wouldn't have played Beckham as part of a front 3. 

But I just can't see it right now. I just think the original quote of a "30-50 million winger" was in reference to Perez and I can see a few being disappointed that we don't sign anyone else. I hope I'm wrong because that position could truly be the difference between 8th/9th place and a proper challenge to the top 6

Would defo welcome a new winger, but if it doesn't happen there are other options. Probably too soon, but if JJ is as good as everyone is making out, they could move RP down the wing. He'd definitely fit in there no probs.

It is an option to play Ricardo on the wing, and a good one, but he is one of the top RBs in the league, so I think we'd be best off playing him at RB whenever possible.

 

It is great to have versatile players, though. Could well be useful in the event of an injury or sending off.

 

I'm happy with the squad as it is, although I think we might struggle if YT or JM are unavailable for any substantial length of time. If we were going to bring in one more player this window, I'd like some competition for them, ideally who can also play on the wing. With no more outgoings (other than HM), I think we'll have had an excellent transfer window.

 

I don't think I've ever looked forward to a season more than this.

I have the opposite view to this.

 

With £80m spent, any more will start to make me get twitchy as the squad and wage bill get ever more bloated.  Where does it come from?  How do we satisfy FFP?  It's not sustainable, we will need to pay for it further down the road.

 

What we really need is to find homes for a small army of players and get some money in and the wage bill down.  That has to be the priority for me.

 

I would like to say goodbye to Jakupovic, Gray (if the price is right), King, James, Slimani, Ghezzal and Silva.  I would add Nacho to that list aswell but I don't think it is realistic as he just has no value at the moment and possibly Mendy.

 

That's not far off a full team that we need to move on and might just recoup £50m if we could pull it off and still leave us with a 25 man squad with two players for every position.

Patience. 20 days left. Loans and sales will be made.

Clubs lower than us are waiting to see what we will do so they can augment their squads with players on loan and purchases they might not normally be able to afford.

I'm pretty sure Rodgers is still figuring it out. He needs these games to do it.

Not sure much is gained in games against low level opposition.

Majority on that list have had their time and should now be surplus to requirements

Roma after suso. Wonder whether they will need to offload cengis under to get him in. 

In 90minutes last March they said Roma were looking to offload him to release funds, with Arsenal sniffing round. Quoted value in Transfermarkt was 35mill €.
