    I wouldn't mind that. He had some very telling contributions in the end.

    Charlie Austin is training with our U23's currently, maybe he could be the new Llorente

    Urgh. Nothing against the guy, and he did have something of an impact in some CL games, however I'd rather we sign a proper back-up or another Son-like player who can player off Kane and be a replacement, rather than have to make-do with Llorente. He plays in such a different way to kane that we have to change the way we play when he comes on, and I dont think that that works

    Tend to agree with this.

    I would go for Chris Wood if we want this sort.

    HGP, used to the league and always a handful when I see him

    Wouldn't Burnley want £30 million plus for him though seeing as he is their main centre forward?

    If we are looking to retain Llorente (no doubt on a significantly reduced contract) then I would imagine we'll be looking to him as an option to bring on towards the end of games if we're going long and wanting a player to hold it up when we're closing out a game or get players around him to play off of him if we're chasing the game like the end of the Ajax game.

    Don’t know how I’d feel about another year of big Fernando.

    There’s “being brave” and there’s being completely bloody masochistic.

    Any replacement will cost us, depends how many funds we have.

    I’m pretty sure we don’t have £30 million to spend on a player who is likely to get less than 10 games of football over the season. Might as well keep the Lamppost for that seeing as he is already integrated in the squad, seems to be fine playing a bench role and doesn’t seem to have injury issues.

    I just got up to go the fridge for a drink, it would've taken Llorente a fortnight.

    I thought this would happen when we had to loan Clarke out.

    I think it's a reasonable plan - focus funds elsewhere
