    Why would we want a holding player that knows where the goal is?.... The whole idea of a holding player is that he frees up the attacking players to attack as they will have confidence that if they lose the ball we actually have a player in the correct position to help stop the other team taking advantage of us committing men forward.

    He was a lovely footballer, I just don't value his opinion on anything

    I watch those videos and think 'that is exactly what we do not have'. A player in the right position to win/pick up the ball and/or ensure that the opposition aren't in acres of space centrally running at our goal with an easy pass on for them between our centre halves and full backs. Winks can do the one pass bit but the positional sense is extremely poor, he really doesn't know when to sit, when to press, which run to cover and which player to back-up. Sissoko can make the tackles, can probably perform the dribbles but the passing alludes him. Skipp - he could be a great option and if so, fantastic, we can actually have two players for a position in the squad!

    Mate, this might come as a shock to you, but we sold Eriksen half a year ago. He now plays for Inter.

    I do not know if Hojberg is the player we need but there is no doubt (imo) that our priority has to be a DM, with a good reliable player in that position we will solve a lot of problems.

    He is unremarkable but solid. What he does better than Winks is put his body into the blocks and tackles. Maybe that's all that is missing in our midfield since Dembele left.

    Ha ha typical. Soton struggling against our packed defence, commentator says how comfortable we are... then right at the end "Mistake from Aurier...goal for Soton!". What a shock.

    Not a fan of those videos - but I agree

    look at him track back
    Close down
    Drop deep into the box to clear
    Positioning
    Drive forward with the ball



    something sissoko/winks don’t do Fully.

    Even then, watch (I think it is) Winks.... decides to face up the player that Dele is getting to, instead of covering the runner in behind. That is where a proper, quality DM would make the right choice and probably leave us with a clean sheet.

    PEH is Jose's #1 choice. The line I got was JM fully understands our financial position (knows what he can spend) and has cut his cloth accordingly as far as targets are concerned.

    This means this window should be easier than when Poch was here, and Levy has little room to escape criticism should we not get a good chunk of what JM wants done.

    I'm with my contact and his son all day today so might get a few bits as the day goes on. I'll try to post if I can(signal permitting) as we're out on the briney all day.

    This bloke still making up stories?

    Who's the other fantasist on there? Is it Hercules? Has anything he has said ever come true?

    It always makes me laugh when a signing like Bergwijn happens with no pre knowledge at all from the 'ITKS'.

    Hercules is absolutely full of brick and borderline illiterate.

    One year left on his contract, wants to come to us, in the midst of a financial downturn, and then the precedent of us transferring a better Dane for ~£15 million earlier this year.
    Seems set up for us to get good value.
