Performances like yesterday and v west ham make me think we do need Declan rice, mainly for muscle and fight, players with that winning attitude are vital, Bruno Fernandes has it at united and it's infectious around team, can't think who posted it but kante kovecic jorginho pulisic werner ziyech mount aren't big dominating players,

Agree0 Disagree0

We certainly need that type of midfielder, very difficult to play a midfield two with the options we have right now. We know Kante doesn't work with either Jorginho or Kovacic, I prefer Mount and Gilmour deeper, but if anything they'd be alternatives / long term replacements to Kante - not an option alongside him.

It’s his height and leadership in the middle hat are most valuable. Kante, Kovacic and Mount are all good players but none are physical enough or leaders. Rice would win headers and that’s something we’ve needed for a long time. Remember when we had Ballack, Essien and Lampard? Those were the days. That midfield would win games on its own.

Matt with all due respect Bruno Fernandes does not only have a winning mentality but his a damn good footballer. He decides games himself, similiar to what Diego Costa and Hazard used to do for us. At the moment, the problem isn't entirely defence. We are struggling to register shots on target.

Another thing I will say is that we don't need Declan Rice to beat the likes of WBA, Southampton, Everton, Wolves and an out of form Arsenal. Also I recall West Ham were a whisker away from relegation with Rice. All im saying is that throwing money at players isn't always the answer. We need to fix this starting from the manager. Give Klopp Gilmour and he will be twice the player Declan will ever be.

Agree thoroughly with Shak a quality manager does wonders with an average squad and Frank isn’t doing it with some world class talents I. e Havertz, Werner.

27 Dec 2020 12:41:09
I’m was the same but we have to many good small players, no muscle, even if we got ampadu back, we have pace in werner and pulisic and havertz form midfield, Gilmour mount kovecic are all tidy hard working, jorginho and kante who is legs and energy, we have no height or muscle to stop us being bullied, Kirk you say shak we shouldn’t need it on certain games but it’ll add an option, we area a spineless team with no leaders, it’s ok to hear players say after the game how bad a performance is or was but I want someone shouting at others to work harder to get angry snd to push others,

I would like Rice to join in this window but if he is going to join I think it’s more likely to be in the summer.

My guess is Giroud will leave in this window but maybe In the summer. We will also be looking for a long term replacement for Silva but that may well happen in-house.

I think Lamps will be with us until at least the end of the season and then the owner will make a judgement.

Thats exactly the point Graham 👍.

I think the Rice deal won't happen in January. I'm pretty sure Lampard was the man pushing for the Rice deal, however, given the recent struggles and the scrutiny around his job, I'm sure the board would allow the next manager to decide whether a big money move for Rice is warranted. Id hate for us to recruit Rice and them Lampard gets sacked. Need a plan im place.
