    At least to begin with, opponents were intimidated by his reputation.

    From what I can gather the player who changed a lot of the mind set was Naybet. I’ve heard Jol say it, Keane say and king say it so pretty high praise

    Given how poor I think we've looked, I'd offer him a years contract. If it doesn't work out then not a big problem.

    We didn't look poor against Juve

    If he doesn’t want silly money I see this as low risk and potentially a big up tick in term if his experience. We start from a low bar for first choice RB from last season, one of Aurier or KWP should go, the other become the alternative choice and Foyth emergency backup. I’d be tempted to sell Aurier due to his injury record

    I'm fairly sure foyth is going to start the season as first choice RB, not aurier or KWP

    Problem though that Foyth is suspended for the opening 2 games.

    Bassong will cover, so long as they’re not European games. He’s suspended for those.

    It was a pre season friendly, they mean nothing. It was also Utd’s 4th or 5th game and only our 2nd, they started pre season a couple of weeks before us because our season ended 3 weeks after theirs. I think it would be crazy to make any decisions about form/ability based on that game.

    I've not posted a new thread on GG in approaching 15 years so be gentle please!

    I see today Dani Alves has come to the end of his love affair in Spain - with Djed Spence looking like joining it would be a really clever move imo to sign Alves on a one year deal to act as competition and provide an education to young Djed.

    This would enable us to send Royal back to Spain and Doherty's future would be optional.

    Not one iota of rumour or substance, just a wish.

    Thoughts welcome!

    Dani Alves was past it 2 years ago. I'd rather play Royal, who I think is brick (As a wingback. Decent right back though)!

    Would want too much money for basically being a cheerleader. No offense to cheerleaders, I do think it helps having experienced winners around but not this one.

    See that’s the first real sign of someone who is a real ITK… telling people you’re not one. Very clever, I’ll go and get the Alves shirt printed up.
