Who do you want Summer 2020

Recommended Posts

Really want Emi Buendia. Don't think he'd cost a lot and would be class for us.

Wins the ball a lot in midfield and is great at playing through balls. Exactly what Barnes and Vardy thrive on.

Think he'd score a few more for us aswell with better players around him.

If we really were going to go down the route of splashing some serious cash (which I doubt), I would be more than happy with... 

 

John Stones £25m

Todd Cantwell £25m

David Brooks £25m

Callum Wilson £10m

Nketiah, Willock, Maitland-Niles, Nelson, and Smith Rowe. All young talented attacking talents at Arsenal but you'd think the Gunners wouldn't be able to keep all of them happy as time goes on. Would any of them improve our squad if they became available?

Kasper doesn’t need to improve as a goalkeeper, technically he’s brilliant; it’s his temperament which is sometimes an issue, which has been one of his very few flaws since he arrived regardless. 

Kaspar now needs some proper competition for his place as does Vardy. They've both actually had good seasons but if we really want to be a top six club we need 2 number 9s and 2 number 1s that we can depend on.

Don't disagree re: Vardy but GK competition is a myth.

 

No top club has 'competing' goalkeepers - Adrian, Bravo, Gazzaniga, Caballero, Romero etc. You can only pick one and he plays 38 times a season apart from injury, you can't rotate and drop keepers like strikers, it causes disaster for your defence.

 

The club have backed Iversen to be Schmeichel's long term successor.

United want 18 million for a 30 year old Chris Smalling:o He's got less than two years left on his deal too. A loan move would be perfect for us, but I can imagine United will want to sell him this summer, not sure they'll get the wanted 18 million though.

Jack Grealish

 

I know he won’t come here, but he may be available and it would be a huge statement of intent if we can get him here. If he is just going to cost 40-45m as the rumour has it, that is a bargain. He will become the best midfield player we will have and he tends to operate on the left so he can help solve our problem on the left, freeing Barnes to go central and develop his game behind Vardy. Even in a bad Villa outfit, Grealish stood out - if he has better players around him he will be awesome. I have been watching him for years - he is a gem. He is also very loyal - despite clearly being eligible to play in the PL, he stood by Villa while they spent 3 years in the championship (can you imagine our first team doing that except for Vardy and Kasper?).

I thought it was rumoured to be 80 million they wanted for him.

They dont need to sell him now they`ve stayed up, so he wont be going on the cheap to anyone, and besides that, i will be surprised if we spend anywhere near 40 million on one player.

I`d be happy to have him here if we could keep him on his feet, but it`s not going to happen.

Right. Yeah 40 would be difficult for us let alone 80. I am still wondering if the 80 we got from Maguire is actually still available?

Well we signed Perez  and Tillemans so i would imagine that would account for about 60 million of it, plus their wages,  although of course we would have had a budget to spend on top of that, but i`m not sure it would have covered the 80 million we got for Maguire.

I think the 40-45m price would have been the price had they been relegated. They have no pressure to sell now.

Barnes is not a no.8, and we don't play with a no.10, so where exactly in the centre do you want Barnes to play?

 

We do not need a left sided wide player. The left is Albrighton's best position and Barnes needs a run of games there at the start of next season. We need a right winger with power and goalscoring capabilities, not a left sided £80m copy of Maddison who can't pull his socks above his ankles.

Again, we get prissy about other fans thinking they can buy our players for far below what we'd sell for and now we're doing the same

Our problem on the left? We have much more of a problem on the right hand side. If we are going to chick £40m+ at a winger, it won't be a left sided one....

If we're going to spend 40m + on a chick I'd go for Rachel.
