Arseholes, I know he's full of it which is why I said let's get this party started and not here are some transfer rumours we should all take seriously.

First amplifying an 'ITK', now back pedaling?

 

Not a good start to the day.

This matter is of no little concern, he’s suppressed it well but is Gemmill finally losing the battle for control with his “inner mackem” (from Boldon)

I'm not putting this up because I think we'll sign these players. The guy who made it was just giving his opinion on who we should sign from players who've been linked, but I think it's instructive and good for a bit of banter to see how much squad depth five quality signings would give us. Personally I initially thought I'd rather we bought a six like Khephren Thuram for example instead of Torres. Of course both Milinkovic-Savic and Bruno can play in front of the defence, so with both in the squad the need for specialist six perhaps diminishes, and we could instead concentrate on a position further forward. Still I'd much rather Diaby who can also play down both wings than Torres, even if he has PL experience. Torres of course is very good in the air and can play that sort of false nine role which is useful, but he does appear to be a bit inconsistent.

Szobozalia on the right instead of the middle ? 1473768683-jonah-hill-cut-it-out.gif

 

 

Milikikikovic ahead of longstaff ? 1473768683-jonah-hill-cut-it-out.gif

 

Injury prone Tierney? 1473768683-jonah-hill-cut-it-out.gif

 

Torres? No idea who that flop is but we just spend on 40 mil on a scouse flop plus we got the KING so LW isnt a spot we would be looking at any time soon 1473768683-jonah-hill-cut-it-out.gif

 

 

Todibo? Never heard of him whatever-shrug.gif

As I explained already the graphic was just an example to illustrate the squad depth we could have, not an endorsement of all his picks. With regards to Szoboszlai though he plays on the right wing a fair bit for Leipzig. He's very versatile and moves position frequently, and people who ostensibly play on the wing don't have to play stuck to the touchline as Maddison has proven at Leicester, or indeed Gerrard proved at Liverpool. He could still get into positions from which he could dictate the play. We've of course also seen Almiron drift inside to play balls, play one two's and score absolute crackers which also gave Trippier the space to swing in crosses. Oh and yes of course Milinkovic-Savic would start ahead of Longstaff. Milinkovic-Savic has been one of the most highly regarded and sought after midfielders in Europe for about five or six years now. Longstaff has a good football brain, is a decent passer, and runs his guts out for us, but Milinkovic-Savic is on another plane of existence when it comes to technical skill.

No chance we are buying 2 more wingers with Isak, ASM, Murphy, Almiron and Gordon at the club 

 

Again the graphic isn't an endorsement of every pick. It's just an illustration of what five quality players could do to lift the quality of the squad. And in fairness to the guy who picked them both Torres and Szoboszlai can play a number of positions apart from out wide equally or in some cases better than said position.

I actually think Pavard is a very interesting shout which I seen us linked to recently. I've no idea if there's anything in it, but he'd be amazing cover at right back for Trippier, and he'd probably start ahead of Schar in that right centre back position given he can play both positions. Buying players who can play two or more positions either almost or equally well means you can concentrate more on quality rather than sheer numbers for your squad.

I think we could easily buy a new wide man such as Diaby, as well as a player such as Maddison who can play centrally or out wide
