    We are investing and on face value I haven't got a problem with La Celso Ndombele Sess and Bergwijn as signings, we're just struggling to get them integrated. ?

    In the case of Clarke and sessegnon we will see Jose’s views on Thursday if they play
    With Lo Celso he plays every game we play our first 11 but we need him fit
    With Tubby we need to fit him in somehow (4-3-3) and that’s something Jose has go fix
    Bergwein would be starting for me over Moura for sure

    I think we have to start him whenever possible. In for a penny, in for a pound.

    Exactly, it might be old school but I want to see our record player play, its like us singing Ginola or Klinsmann and not playing. I have huge reservations about him but on yestedays showing I would say like you, in for a penny in for a pound, its not like we are going to be fighting for the league

    I agree with your 433 line up which means only a diamond would see Dele play BUT that may work/be helped if we get another forward as Kane/Son, Kane/New guy or Son/New guy can fill the two forward positions in that formation. And of course improvements (power) in the FB positions would enhance the chances of that formation working.

    The diamond only works if we have a LB who can play like Doherty IMO. It’s the only way to get the width and would create the overloads
    4-3-3 would suit us but I’d prefer it with an attacking LB

    It shows how desperate the situation is. I was (am?) all for cutting our losses and selling as long as we reinvest in this window with the funds BUT it looks like anything like a new team/new approach involves La Celso/Ndombele being at the heart of it ...otherwise we're left with what?

    I'm left hoping the flakeiest of the flakeiest can pull it together when 1. I don't really want to roll the dice on him and 2. All the evidence points to the contrary.

    Jeez it's desperate.

    I dont think Ndombele gets anywhere near a Jose side, but looking at what that means for the team, then other than him getting back in it looks a season of the type of football we saw yesterday.

    Could not agree more, we have given managers money to invest in the team its just that the buys have for various reasons not really produced what they were bought in to do.

    Out of those 6 players 3 should be in the team for me when fit. A midfield of Hjolberg sitting and N'Dombele and Lo Celso providing creativity.
    Hjolberg and Lo Celso have the work rate to cover N'Dombele, although hopefully with some game time he will have a better work rate (not hard).

    Moura doesn't give enough and constantly makes the wrong choices. I'd play Bergwijn instead. He provides some creativity and goal threat.
    IF those 3 can cement their places in the side then 3 out of 6 being a success isn't that bad of an outcome.

    Or rather, too many players who were previously mainly on the bench/reserves, are now in the starting 11.
    Winks
    Sissoko
    Lucas
    Davies
    Dier

    Well winks started and so did sissoko when we got to the CL finals
    Winks also started the season before when we did well
    Dier did too
    Lucas was never a starter I agree
    Davies was also a rotational player
    But I’d argue that Toby showed nothing of quality yesterday And left his man for the corner
    Dele tried but nothing worked for him
    Son and Kane looked like they were aliens to each other
    It’s not just the lesser players that didn’t put a shift in

    Ottawa, actually.
    Basically saved Mourinho's job tonight.

    Much improved - even before the red cards. He was the only one making forward passes, and, for the first time in an eternity, actually pressing and tracking back to stop the little Plovdiv could muster after their goal. His own goal was well deserved.

    Still looks tubby and unfit, but less so, which I guess is all I can hope for. Hoping he gets 45m against Soton, and let's go from there.

    Really loved the way the team got around him for the goal. Hope this spurs him on to bigger (not physically) and better things

    I’ve just pictured getting Bale over the line and Ndombele coming good this season.

    I’m smiling right now.

    To be honest a front five of Son, Kane, Bale, Lo Celso and Ndombele has the potential to be insanely good
