Sign a ST, CM, RW. Quality players, not motivated entirely by money, not looking for one last payday, but players with the right character and motivation. It is apparent Ole wanted a ST and CM in the summer, which the board failed to bring in, how about actually delivering......

We've got the makings of a decent back 4 / 5 imo. If we sign a ST, RW, CM, get some of these spineless shithouses fit and pulling their fingers out, we might actually start getting somewhere. Then we can stop being desperate and irrational, and it will help the youth out. We can start being more selective, and moving the odd player on when we know they cant cut it rather than having to mass cull the squad or try to move mercenaries on that are paid incredible wages.

But as usual, we're on a knife edge. This could go either which way, because its such a mess from the board and ownership down. I have little faith they'll hold their nerve or stick to the strategy (or improve it).

Dembele from Lyon or the new wunderkid at Lille, Osimhen, for the forward position.

Could do with two midfielders as well. Partey from Atleti still has a 50m buyout as far as I know.

It really isn't as hard as we make it look ffs.

To my mind, most of our problems would be solved if we could get a midfield three that worked together as a cohesive unit



It's not that complicated. our current lot though are either too rubbish, in the wrong slot, too thick, or (Pogba) too egocentric to play as a team. look at the scouse Not one of their midfield players is mind-blowing, but they do well because they play for each other rather than themselves.

BIN. (except mctominay, he deserves a chance)

& yet Pogba has worked in every other midfield he's played in? He's not so egotistical to be incapable of playing with other players - there's literal proof by looking at every other side he's played in both domestically & internationally. Serial winners.

He's incapable of playing with shit players & elevating them or leading. He can play with world class sides, win leagues & World Cups, being an integral part. He can't pull a shit side up. So give him better players to play alongside rather than losing the one player we have that is capable.

Why we find the need to cane him rather than the club is a bit weird.

I respectfully disagree.

Mou (whether you like him or not) dropped Pogs for playing for himself and "wanting to show everybody how good he is." His words. Pogs gives the ball away often because he believes (to my mind) that he is good enough to keep the opponent at bay. A team focussed player would just play a simple pass.

Sure he won in the world cup - in a team that has kante and matuidi, two players who epitomise team ethic.

Very skilled player, pogo, one of the best, but more of a loose cannon luxury than a team player imo
