How would you improve the team in January?

I hope not, he was highly rated as a youngster at Leverkusen but has not lived up to his potential. 

 

We already have four component wingers, either go and get a big upgrade or just stick with what we have. The last thing we need is another competent winger who is no better than what we already have. 

Who are these 4 competent wingers ?

 

We have 4 wingers 1 has done ok in Harvey barnes but the rest are not good enough

Isn't he more of a 10 than a winger anyway? I don't rate him at all.

You know who they are, all of them are competent PL players and not elite level. 

 

We don't need someone like Calhanoglu who will probably be no better than what we have.

Perez is not a competent winger.

Plays best as a forward as his stats shows.

 

Albrighton trys hard but is ineffective now. Age has caught upto him but love the bloke just not good enough.

 

Barnes has done ok looks tired last couple of games needs a rest not good enough to take us to the next level yet.

 

Gray. Not good enough for most bottom 10 premier league clubs might be a success in the championship.

I agree, Perez is not a competent winger but I think you'll find if you examine the stats he mostly played there for Newcastle, he was not a forward as such. Someone on this published the facts some time ago. Until then, I thought like you.

 

As for Albrighton, how on earth have you come to the conclusion that he's ineffective now and his age has caught up with him. You have had to have completely made that up unless you've been down at the training ground watching every day because he hasn't been playing!

 

As for Gray, whilst not being his biggest fan, on the odd occasion he's come on for Perez,  he looked sharper and added far more in his short cameo roles than Perez has all game. Before judging too harshly I'd give both a run in the side ahead of Perez. I doubt most of the exotic sounding foreign names put forward on here as potential wingers would fair much better. Remember the screaming out for Sarr in the summer ? He's hardly been uprooting many trees.

Teemu Pukki? 
 

Yes he is 29, but what a player to rotate with Vardy to keep him fresh. ESP with the possibility of champs league next season? Any others think the same?

I'm aware he's not the quickest but Aaron Mooy is a really clever footballer. Would be a good option for us and is only on loan at Brighton.

Pukki, richarilson, and deulofeu would all be great additions. We'll need CL football and a big summer budget, though. Wouldn't mind Felipe Anderson either. 

 

Telling that we're all thinking of wide forwards and another striker - it's clear where there are improvements to be made to the squad. These are difficult buys in the Jan market, unfortunately.

I’d  love Felipe Anderson . Won’t happen and I think we missed  out  on him previously but I think he’s the kinda of winger/front 3 player who would thrive here and add some real skill

My opinion obviously, but every time I read Deulofeu's name in this thread I do wonder if people haven't learnt from the last time we failed to capitalise on our position. He's no better than what we have, and he'd no doubt be someone we'd have to overpay for.

 

Felipe Anderson, for me, is an equally poor shout.

He was the best player on the pitch yesterday.

Mate at work is a West Ham fan and he complains every week about Filipe Anderson's attitude and application. Bags of talent but piss poor work rate and he is apparently anonymous in most games. He seems to be one of those players fans of other clubs think is brilliant but home fans despair of. 

 

That said, Pellegrini always played him on the wing when he's very much a central midfielder. He would cost a fortune though. Avoid imho.

Moments of talent that are seemingly becoming more and more fleeting isn't what we need. It's the antithesis of the business we've done that's made us so successful.

Never seen Anderson play anywhere but the wing to be honest, holds on to the ball too long and is too lightweight to be a Premier League centre midfielder. He might have played there for Lazio a few times tho.

I wasn't one for suggesting Carrasco before because we wouldn't be able to match what he's on in China but this could make it more realistic. 

I would question the motivation of anyone who has chosen to go and play in China if not at the end of their career, not sure anyone who's gone in that direction would be the sort of character we want

Get the point but being a professional footballer is not comparable to most jobs. I agree its a valid point if you're talking about moving to an elite club in an elite league, money does talk in that situation, but going to China is basically saying I'm not bothered about playing at the highest level and being the best I can I'm just interested in an easy pay day

The best players on the pitch yesterday were in blue and white. Gray and Perez were miles ahead of him yesterday
