Ajax bid for ben cufré from velez sarfield. If tagliafico doesnt want to come to us we could just cut out the middle man and buy ajax's ideal lb replacement.

Ajax have the luxury of developing their players in the Eredivisie, we have high level games straight away, every week.

Despite being in the eredevisie they actually have a higher standard for the players they buy than we do. Argentinian league isnt a slouch either.

So let’s say that Brendan announces tomorrow that we will be playing with wing-backs this season so although we will be getting another attacker, it likely won’t be a winger.

 

Thoughts?

Based on who we've been linked with so far, a realistic look at signings...

 

Must haves

- Wesley Fofana (CB)

- Timothy Castagne (RB/LB)

- Francisco Trincao (RW) (loan)

 

Nice-to-haves

- Nicolas Tagliafico (LB)

- Odsonne Édouard (ST)

- Ozan Kabak (CB)

- Florian Thauvin (RW)

 

I'd love us to sign Trincao permanently, but if we can't right now then screw it, let's just get him in on loan and keep looking for our Mahrez replacement long term. Thauvin would be *chef's kiss*, but at the moment seems a little out of reach.

It'll be an attacker who plays across the front three like Mbuemo or Justin Kluivert type player.

Tbh, Mbuemo seems exactly like our sort of signing

A fluid 3-4-3 / 4-1-4-1 with Justin as a 3rd centre back and Barnes and Mbuemo either side of Vardy would make me feel much more assured going in to the season. Could do with a left footed CB too.

So a system that leaves Maddison out of the starting 11 :whistle:

That’s probably good news for us

So no Youri :nigel:

There will be games where we play 3-4-3 with one of Youri or Maddison and others where we play with 2 wingers/forwards either side of Vardy. Wolves regularly alternate between 3-4-3 and 3-5-2

Maddison and youri partnership is the reason 2019 was such a good year for us. Both of them need to start as many games together next year as possible if we even have a hope of replicating that success.

I agree but the form needs to return as Tielemans has looked much better without Maddison but I'm not suggesting one of them doesn't play most weeks just that 3-4-3 will be a system used against certain opposition of 3 at the back is the stock system we use.

Tielemans struggled last year because he plays best with a pacy forward making runs behind opposition lines in front of him, something that perez doesnt provide, not because of maddison. If we get a proper rw i guarantee you tielemans will return to form in the 4141 formation.

I watched quite a lot of games last season and I'd agree with this. This is where you expect the 200l a week manager to come up with a system that gets the best out of both of them most weeks. It was a joke shunting Maddioson out left, he'd have been as well dropping him as he was about as effective as an ashtray on a motorbike out there.

I tend to agree but Maddison started dropping deeper and deeper as our form suffered and it didn't suit Youri being camped in our half with no creative outlet to get the ball to to create those openings that we were so good at. We started to go a bit more direct in 3-4-1-2 which if you drop Maddison in there behind Vardy and either Barnes or Iheanacho then hopefully we stretch play quicker and get Maddison and Tielemans pulling the strings again.

Holding on to that Trincao deal is madness. It's gone. 

It's unlikely but having read the recent reports on how desperate Barcelona's finances are looking, it's not quite out of the question. 

 

If Messi doesn't leave or the contract situation gets into the courts, Barcelona will have to reduce their wage bill through sales or loans of other players. Looks like Rakitic is going to Sevilla but along with Messi, the other high earners include Pique, Suarez, Alba and Busquets who they may struggle to offload. 

 

And Barcelona's directors can be on the hook to pay back debts if the finances are mismanaged and they'll want to do anything they can to avoid having to do this. Bartomeu is someone who has gone back on his word regularly so wouldn't surprise me if he ultimately sanctioned a deal for us to sign Trincao.  

 

Also, don't get this 'we don't have money' claim - we supposedly bid 45m for Trincao even before the Chilwell sale.
