    De Jong anchoring Ndombele and Lo Celso would be a pretty sweet engine room for our new era, though getting Mane at that point in time could have helped us over the line that season and the bonus of keeping Liverpool back a bit

    Mane for me.

    Not only was he already proven in EPL but he did so under Pochettino, so would’ve slotted straight into our setup and probably provided that extra cutting edge we needed; back when our defence and midfield were rock solid.

    Instead he’s now become the Dippers most consistent attacker :(

    Whoops :oops: Thought he played in Pochettino’s final season at Southampton! The rest still stands though, as Mane seem to combine Lamela’s work rate with Son’s finishing whilst being more consistent than either.

    The majority of them were all rumours and no substance. Someone getting bored?

    No option for Rivaldo or Fernando Morientes, never mind the mother of them all Leandro Damiao.

    Was fuming when we missed out on Dybala, sums up why I hate transfer deadline bull tbh. But without a shadow of a doubt it'd be Manè fir mw, easy with hindsight but even then it was evident we'd made a mistake there.

    Sancho for me as he was genuinely gettable as we held all the aces due to the Kyle Walker deal

    Mane for example was one where we couldn’t afford his wages which were actually a crazy demand at the time from him, but something Pool we’re happy to pay

    Interesting re his wages. Didn't he only in the last 18 months sign a deal to put him on £100k, which made me think what wages did he demand from us at that time..?

    Opened up this thread expecting to see Hazard, Willian, and Zidane listed. I guess the list are signings that might have been possible with Pochettino. From the list, the answer should be either Mane for the present moment and last couple of seasons, or Sancho for the future.

    Signing Mahrez in the January when Leicester won the league. We would have won the league ourselves.

    I think Berahino would have made it had he gone to the right club at the right time.

    Assuming Leicester were willing to sell for less than 100 million or at all.
