Hopefully someone takes a punt on Bouanga before the end of the window, Claude gets desperate and takes the cash + Ghezzal (btw, I know Sean said it and I’m not using him as a source just agree it’s logical).

..Puel's son reccommended him to his dad, who took a gamble on bringing him in!!!

When Puel celebrated wildly when he scored against the posh, he’d found the new Messi. Alas, it wasn’t to be. :unsure:

A lot of pissed off people will read it thinking something has happened and it's just a load of shite being spouted again. :D

Suspect most of the experienced readers will know it means sod all ......

I know SFE talks out his arse but a player exchange has been mentioned. I think Diabate is more likely though. 

Diabate is just a Ligue 2 standard player that Puel took a gamble on which didn’t pay off, I don’t think a team like St Étienne would want him, he scored 1 goal in 20 games on loan for a team relegated to Ligue 2 last season

Puel didn't take a gamble, he was so besotted with him that he demanded the transfer went through.

We have Evans and Soyuncu who are highly competent and have nailed down the two CB spots.

 

What we really need is a young player who can put pressure or them not someone who is established with little room for growth. I also believe we need a CB who is great in the air to supplement Evans and Soyuncu as their strengths are game intelligence in Evans case and speed and athleticism in Soyuncu's. Fofana could come here as back up and he will still play 30+ games this season and is only getting better and will probably put pressure on Evan's place in the next 12 months.

If he’s any good in 2/3 seasons time he’ll be gone anyway because we can’t turn the money down if that’s what we’re doing it for fair enough, we do develop players and sell them on it’s a business. Tah would probably be he longer but we wouldn’t get the same sell on value.

The club has model buy young talented players and sell one big player a season. And you want to get a player that made so many errors last season that they got a new CB and can't get into the first team of his current club

I'm more than happy to keep buying to keep buying the best young talent we can get and sell them on two or three years for tens of millions of profit. I'm more than happy to be that club and it's a highly desirable and sustainable model.

Yeh it’s good that we do that to make a few quid I’d just like someone to come in with experience.

Experience is overrated, I much prefer ability and a higher ceiling even if they're a bit raw.

Lack of experience cost us back end of last season because some of the young ones struggle to manage some games so I wouldn’t say it overrated 😂

Really?

 

We had five players over 30 in our last game against Man Utd and that was after dropping the 30yo Ryan Bennett from the previous game. i would suggest it was a lack of ability more than a lack of experience but each to their own.

I agree with that but it was the games well before that which cost us, even Rodgers said lack of experience cost us in some games towards the back end so I’m not making it up.

Yet our side is about 8th youngest in the Prem.  The youngest average age side is Man Utd - the team the reeled us in at a canter.
