What we need in the summer (probably not gonna happen though)


#41

So prepare yourself for Arteta and a very tight budget.


#42

lol.

Holding and Chambers were probably even more impressive in their first few games.


#43

Mavro still has some ways to go to reach Nelson level unfounded fandom.


#44

The only reason to sign two CBs is if Mustafi is getting fucked off out the door. If he isn’t it wouldn’t be very responsible for a club that supposedly likes to promote youth to push 3 reasonably talented young CBs further down the pecking order.

We’ll no doubt suffer from mistakes from them but I think we can accept it if we improve defensively under a new manager and strengthen elsewhere.


#45

More than anything we need a back up RB.


#46

Think Niles can fill that gap tbh


#47

We’ve already reached peak Nacho so left back as well must be considered


#48

We need one more forward option, A new GK, RB, CM at the very least.

No point selling Mustafi unless there are good offers on the table


#49

We can probably squeeze another season out of Monreal or give Kolasinsac more opportunities.


#50

It won’t be pretty, man can barely run anymore.


#51

We would need a first choice RB to challenge Bellerin, tbh.


#52

You still don’t think we need 2 quality centre backs ?


#53

So we got a keeper, centre back and full back, not to the level I was talking about though. We got Torreira that’s a huge tick. No winger at all though. So net result is 1/5.


#54

Im not sure we will be relevant enough to get the players we want by summer now. Im with Aussie on the 2 centre backs as priority.
Need at least one now. Honestly think we are at a crisis point right now. We have stunk the place out all month performance wise.


#55

Aussie with another a told you so :wink: still think we only need one. Holding and Mavro should be contesting for the other CB position


#56

If we’d actually gotten a quality CB this question might be relevant.


#57

Bite size is small on Mav and can only see Holding as promising right now. Needs a top signing to bring him on for me.
Carvalhio type who done that for John Terry sort of thing.


#58

Yeah I don’t really rate any of our centre backs, so I’ll still maintain we need 2.


#59

Holding is basically Maldini Mk.II so that’s one CB spot covered.


#60

And from now on shall be referred to as Holdini. Deviation from this standard will result in death by stoning.
