Just a bit of fun for when we can sign players again what positions would you like to see strengthened and who would you sign? I'm going to be controversial and say I'd like a new keeper too. Kepa isn't filling me with confidence and he hasn't progressed like I thought he would.

1) Left Back (CHILWELL or GRIMALDO) - Full backs are a massive part of the game nowadays and Alonso can't do that. Massive respect for what he's achieved but I'd like to see either Grimaldo or Chilwell brought in.

2) Right Wing (ZIYECH OR NERES) - I'm
Not saying Sancho because I'd rather a left footed. We've already got Pulisic and CHO more suited to the left cutting in. That's why I'd like to see us go after a left footer.

3) Goalkeeper (ONANA) - I know a lot will disagree but Kepa hasn't progressed like he should have. He makes us nervous on set pieces, he's not great at catching and he should be a lot stronger with some of the shots that have gone through him. I've been very impressed with Onana for Ajax. He's a leader from the back, great on the ball and more importantly he's commanding for a keeper. Kepa is a bit too soft in my eyes.

So that's my three areas I don't think we need a lot mainly just replacements for Alonso and Pedro and my personal choice of goalkeeper.

I think sooner rather than later Kepa will be recognised as the best modern keeper in the world but I except at the moment he does have weaknesses.

IMO when we are allowed we will buy replacements for those who leave. I also think we will not sign players in this window even if we are allowed.

I think Pedro and Alonso will leave the club at the end of the season and I also think Barkley might be sold.

If I’m correct I think we should sign Chilwell and Neres. I don’t think we would rush to sign a replacement for Barkley as I think we already have enough cover within the club.

I agree we have RLC and Mount for the LCM position so we’re fine with Barkley going once Ruben is fit.

I think the roles that need targeting are a backup striker (assuming Batshuayi and Giroud leave), starting caliber left back (assuming Alonso leaves), and a winger with a lot of pace who is alright being a rotational option for the time being. I like Callum Wilson as a striker that compliments Tammy and would be open to such a role. I would like to see what Alex telles could do at left back for a major club. And for a rotational winter, I’ll go out of the box and suggest Michail Antonio. He is an absolute unit and can operate in a number of capacities which would be beneficial to have in a squad.

You want Callum Wilson and Antonio? Don’t mean to sound disrespectful mate but they’re the exact type of average signings we shouldn’t be making no more.

Remember BB91, at your invitation, all comments are just fun!

That’s why I said I’m not being disrespectful and then carried on with my point.

14 Nov 2019 19:52:20
And that’s why you aren’t being disrespectful, it’s just fun!

The fees for both Wilson and Antonio would be far too high for their ability considering they’re English. Neres seems far too lightweight. I’d go for Werner as he can play up top and out wide.

14 Nov 2019 21:18:41
I get that neither of those two get the juices flowing but what player that is quality would want to come into a situation where you will clearly be behind CHO, pulisic, and willian or as the clear backup to Abraham? I think vardy would complement Tammy excellently but there’s no chance he’d accept that role. Likewise I’d love Leroy Sane to compliment what we currently have but it doesn’t make sense.
