    Are there ANY rumours of us wnating to buy any defensive-minded midfielders, who can actually tackle cleanly and robustly?

    I have BT sport so watch German league games on a Friday night and Sundays. He looks very lively. Hard to say how good he is. But as I think Dier is cak and wanyama is broken so he would be an upgrade.

    Obviously buying a player for no other reason than morale makes no sense

    But even a squad player is important for a squad that everyone seems to think has gone stale in large parts.

    How about free transfers or the eriksen of the football World. Surely we can't be the only club facing this situation where good players want to leave.

    I'd really want us to go all out to get Erling Braut Haaland now. I've been unsure of him before, even though he's been hyped up for quite some time, but the guy has taken massive leaps, and is the real deal. What really is the exceptional about him, is his meteorology and desire. He REALLY wants to be as good as it gets, and will do everything to get there. 6 goals in 3 CL games. 3 vs Genk, 1 vs Liverpool and 2 vs Napoli.
    11 goals and 4 assists in 9 games in the league. He's big and strong, good pace, good with both feet, dominant in the air, and a great finisher. He's a bit like Kane, only with more pace.
    It's now or never to get him, before he gets too expensive.

    I think that ship has sailed already. The bigger clubs are already circling. I could see him replacing Suarez at Barca.

    he is an out and out number 9
    Looks a hell of a player
    But every top side in Europe is aware of him now and we don’t need another 9 as a priority

    I dont think we need many in in Jan. Even one would be enough. Priority signing would either be a RB or CB, but I'd take a risk going forward for the rest of the season with a slightly smaller squad than ideal. Clearing out some who either arent wanted or dont want to be around is as high a priority if not higher - aim should be to have a settled, motivated squad on Feb 1st. So clear out as many of Rose, Eriksen, Toby, Wanyama, perhaps Aurier as possible.

    Disagree - we have plenty of squad players, what we need is the creme de la creme to move us onwards

    I think any of these players will have their agent in their ear advising that we are a graveyard for such players...

    Whilst I totally appreciate there has been little to no evidence to suggest it'll be the case this season so far, I still hope that Dier and / or Skipp can come to the fore and we won't have such an evident need for this kind of player.

    Yep and it's not improving the first team for 3-4 years that has got us where we are.

    The good thing is it's not too late to address the problem and importantly the key men know what needs doing

    But do the key people know what they're doing as they're the same people that contributed to this mess. We'll never know the exact details but surely Levy and Poch must have some level of culpability for the 2018 summer.

    I don't think the summer of 2018 going how it did means they don't know what they're doing, no.
    If it's true we were in for the likes of De Jong that year and just decided that if we can't get our first choice then we hold out until we can then i can get on board with that policy - even if in the short term there is some pain... needs must whilst we got the stadium over the line and so now lets judge them from where we go from here.

    Next two windows will be key obviously, out with those who haven't committed and hopefully see players of the same level as Lo.Celso Ndombele and Sessegnon come in to replace.

    Phillips at Leeds and Cook at Bournemouth are players that though maybe not the out and out defensive player they are very energetic and cover the midfield well.

    Yep and I think this summer we moved towards signing top class talent and top rated youngsters.

    Philips is one we have looked at a lot according to some Leeds mates I know

    I have to say I’ve always been impressed with him
