Schneiderlen and depay getting mentioned constantly however I've also heard ashley young is being lined up also. 7million fee.
Whats your thouggts blues. I would be happy with all 3!
10 Jan 2017 10:04:48
Surely we would never get all 3? I'm Optimistic we will get MS I think he will be a great signing. I'd take Memphis and young but I hope we keep Del. Maybe strength and creativity in the middle would encourage our wingers. I am sure we will get the signings we need. This time next year rodney!

Why on earth would we want Ashley Young? He is the polar opposite to his surname, I think the biggest thing we need is going to be a new manager before long, I hate to be jumping the gun but Koeman seems to be nearly as clueless as Roberto, his substitutions and tactics are mystifying at times, and trying to aquire Schneiderlin and fonte is just bad news, the old pals act in football rarely ever works, koemans soton team never finished above 6th, we aspire to higher than that long term so those players aren't going to be good enough I feel .

Schneiderlin is better than what we have Danny. Who on your list is a realistic signing Messi Ronaldo? i'd be surprised if Fonte was a target age price etc red top fodder. We won't sign young.
10 Jan 2017 10:54:17
Neither Messi or Ronaldo is on my list, but a striker would be, a winger and a creative Mid, I wouldn't trust Koemans judgement on players after the Bolasie signing, 27 million for someone who doesn't create or score enough, Schneiderlin will not alter the way we are currently playing at all .
10 Jan 2017 11:11:05
We definitely need creativity but Mc and Barry also need replacing MS and Ghanna with a creative midfielder surely is a great wish.

Not another past it man utd player. Just wait til Michael Carrick is surplus to requirements and we are linked to him.
10 Jan 2017 12:16:30
Where are we going? Is it a team for now or are we going to build somthing? Fonte is to old! Look at spuds young exciting players. Isn't that a better way instead of oldies that cost an won't make to much differance!

Agree Goodison. If we're going to have a revolution then let's have a proper one. It's not like we are going to get relegated. So let's use the rest of the season to bring the age of the side down. By the way talking about young players. Nice to see Pennington back playing, bloody good player.

Am i the only one slightly concerned about us buying older players without much shelf life in them. I am hoping Steve Walsh can unearth some unknown young gems in the Payet, Mahrez, Lanzini, Dembele mold. I don't really want us buying players over 30 unless they are cheap. Why the hell we weren't all over Dembele when he was leaving Fulham for £500k 6 months ago I have no idea! But is does show that there are real bargains out there if you know your stuff. If we are going to rebuild then let's do it properly and take our time and shift the dead wood and only bring in players that go straight into the 1st team, improve the squad OR are bright young prospects. On another note please structure contracts to incentivise players. Lower basic pay with decent results based add ons.

To say Bolasie doesn't create is a bit much, fact is he's put so many on a plate for the likes of Lukaku, Barkley, McCarthey etc and they have missed those sitters, the stats do lie at times. we need to build from the back, a quality keeper is needed followed by 2 World Class Centre halves, that's what is needed.
10 Jan 2017 17:18:16
Bolasie never produced much at palace, he never produced much for us before he got injured, his crossing is absolutely woeful, he over hits everything, his shooting is woeful, mirallas, del, Lennon and Barkley have been dropped at various points for doing no worse than Bolasie was doing, only difference is that Koeman brought Bolasie to the club, he cost 27-30 million, he was a bad buy end of .

Dembele signed for Celtic sensibly to get regular first team football, which we couldn't promise him at that stage. Sometimes fans think a club can just choose who they want to buy and the player doesn't even get a say. As often as not, it's the player isn't interested in coming rather than we didn't look at them.
