Everton apparently joining the race to sign Zaha.

 

Everton have got some deep pockets and large wage outlay eh? Wonder if FFP will come knocking for them at any point. 

 

Seriously though, they’ll be a force this season along with Wolves and maybe even West Ham.

Agreed, if they sign Zaha will they be a real challenge to top 6. However Zouma has returned to Chelsea and their defence is not that strong. I still think our starting 11 is better than theirs.

It’s the same every summer West Ham and Everton spend big money on foreign players with fancy names and everyone raves of them expecting them to disrupt the top 6 when really they don’t massively improve in the league.

I'm half expecting about 3 or 4 different mini leagues this season. One involving liverpool and man city again (cant see anyone whose going to be challenging them (especially if Spurs lose Ericsson - although that may not happen now) - the eternal optimist in me hopes we do ....).

 

I can see their being five or six teams all playing for the rest of the European places.

 

Then the top 10 or 11 being noticeably higher than the bottom 9 or 10. (Watford always seem to be up their for long periods of the league).

 

Then the 4 or 5 at the bottom fighting relegation. 

 

I feel while we may get this to a degree a lot of seasons they'll be more of a gap forming between these mini leagues this season.

A few weeks to go and as some of the Italian “big boys” in particular, try to fall into line financially, expect the domino effect of signings.

 

hopefully not deadline day, but we have irons in a few fires that are dependent on many factors at this stage of the window. 

 

I still fully expect 2 or 3 signings north of 20m

Not if Harry stays ....... we aren’t spending 140m nett !

Interesting...this screams 'Perisic from Inter' to me ?

 

EDIT: Çalhanoğlu from Milan might be one too, since we've been linked recently...

 

Thanks for this kind of info - looking forward to seeing those 2 or 3 signings! Guessing they'll be for midfield cover, a winger and an attacking mid as Rodgers suggested.

More like Praet and João Mario

Forgot João Mario was still at Inter! Praet is at Sampdoria though, and I don't think they're under any FFP pressure.

Or we could replace Gray/Ghezzal who just aren't good enough. And keep Albrighton who has proven ever since the great escape, under every manager, that he has a role in our squad, usually in our matchday squad. He provides another option that a "wide forward type player" can't provide.

I remember seeing Albrighton when he was playing for Villa and taking note of him. Always seemed underrated for all the work he did on the pitch.

Getting the job done. That cross field pass to Ricardo that started the move for the Perez goal was class yesterday.

Ricardo starting second half on the wing.. maybe Rodgers is putting trust in JJ after what he’s seen in pre season to play a decent role next season and Ricardo further up... might effect our transfer plans?

Not gonna happen. One of the two best RBs in the league & that’s where he’ll start most games.

I don’t mean full time, but for some games use it as an option

 I agree about gray, jury is out on ghezzal for me, I would give him till jan, if he’s still below par loan out.

 

 Albrighton is a funny one for me, I have posted many times along the lines of jimbo, as creatively all are wingers lack real quality to break down teams, and albrighton for me creatively offers probably the least imo.

 

 Where I like your post is I probably would keep albrighton for another season, I hope we have a more technical, better attacking wingers in before the season starts, to be our starting wingers, but I would keep him to bring off the bench to close games out, as sadly now his defensive work rate is his main attribute.

Watford still in talks for Ismailia Sarr, value him at £20m with Rennes allegedly looking for closer to £27m

Might not be much movement with him for a while - only just finish AFCON duties.
