I expect pogba to leave.
Just wanted to ask eds if they believe Savic and Fernandes could both come in this window?
It would be great business imo.

{Ed002's Note - They Paly in different positions so sure, they could. First choice may not be attainable so SMS is next up.}

They would really improve our midfield and neither seem like big time Charlie's either. I'd suspect both would relish the challenge to prove themselves on a bigger stage.

Currently I feel our midfield looks very low on quality.

Ed01 and 02. If we were to sign Fernandes who would be a better partner in your eyes. Saul or SMS?

{Ed001's Note - Saul, Savic wants to play in similar areas, whereas Saul will go where he needs to be.}

07 Jul 2019 22:48:51
Who is first choice Ed I'm guessing its Saul?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - done to death.}

07 Jul 2019 22:09:59
Thanks Ed01. I know ED02 has mentioned he is first choice but very expensive and we would need to persuaded to come but he would be a fantastic signing.

Guess we need to wait and see what happens.

{Ed001's Note - he would be worth paying over the odds for imo.}

What is your take on Bruno Fernandes ed1, if you have seen enough of him? Do you think he will be a good buy for us? Also what do you make of Sergej? He was really impressive season before last but had an underwhelming campaign last season. I think this window will be crucial for us, if we buy good players who perform for us then top 4 will be gettable but if we miss out on top 4 again then there might start to be a big gap between us and other 3_4 teams.


{Ed001's Note - I haven't yet seen enough of him sorry, but he is on the list for a player profile, so I will have to watch him a lot soon!

SMS seemed to lose his way last season, probably needs a move to relight his fire a bit and wake him up.}

Don't you think SMS is a bit slow to play in the premier league? He has a habit of getting caught out due to pace and ends up fouling (has some of the highest number of fouls and possession losses and bad touches according to the stats afaik) .

Perhaps its because Lazio play through way too much and the opposition doubles up and presses him. He does have the skill and strength imo. Decision making is decent but should improve with age.

I think he should be playing a bit deeper instead of the more advanced role he has. I can see a midfield of Fernandes, Savic and Longstaff work if Savic plays a bit deeper since they all work hard off the ball. Perhaps even a diamond by adding a Mctominay or Matic could work.

{Ed001's Note - he is a bit on the slow side, but the problem with the fouling is down to not reading the game well enough to get into position in time, rather than down to pace. I agree he needs a deeper role.}

Saul reads the game well and as Ed001 previously stated, he can cover multiple positions on the field.

Saul is a beast of a player.

Better than pogba and would be most complete CM in the PL since Gerrard.
