Looks like this one is going to happen this week according to Steve's marras in the press.

He sounds like a too-cute-to-be-rakish Argentine pivot player, slight of build, wearing his floppy hair with an undercut, most content away from the pitch nuzzling up in a woman's heaving embonpoint.

After a striker right wing back is the position we need strengthening the most.

If we got him and a striker who could finish I reckon we would finish top half and not be too far off Europe. But that would be having ambition

Less Argentine-Italian than Italo-Mexican, as a child he watched games of polo through a chain-link fence and wore a broken bandolier which he found by the dump. Slung low around his scrawny waist, he was no conquistador but a sunken crevice.

Right Wing back? Man we have Yedlin, Manquillo and Kraft for that position. Even Hayden.
Surely we need attacking midfielders, when Atsu is about the only one on bench? We have 2 left backs out too.

Agree. Other than Maximin, Almiron and Willems, we don't have wide players who produce quality, and Willems is out for the season. Even Maximin and Almiron have had question marks against their final product, but they give teams a hard time so they deserve some credit for that.

Who f***ing cares where the room is. For both him and Bentaleb people are banging on about how we have enough players but whether he's replacing a right back or Atsu, he's an improvement. Worrying about having too many players is silly. Injuries have us to the bare bone constantly

Post by: Kanji on Thursday 23 January 2020, 07:13:44 PM
My guess is he's probably going to be our first choice RWB who then cover further forward in the wide positions. I'd rather see Manquillo or Yedlin play RWB as a sub with Lazaro further up if it meant Atsu wasn't our plan b winger!

                    Dubravka

         Shar  Lascelles  Lejuene
Lazaro                                     Rose

         M.Longstaff  Bentaleb

     Almiron                  Saint Max
                      Bowen

Behave yourself.

Piatek upfront, Bowen on the bench.

Piatek would be great!
But I think he will end up elsewhere.

Would love us to play 4-2-3-1 with a front 4 of:
Bowen  Almiron  Saint Max
                Piatek

But it depends on if Lazaro can play RB.

To push on we need at some point need to have one less defender and one more attacker in the first XI.

To do this we had to strengthen the central midfield and right wing, we may well have done this. Based on current fit personnel, a more cohesive attacking team would be:

Dubravka
Hayden Fernandez Lejeune Clark
Lazaro Bentaleb Longstaff ASM
Almiron
Joelinton

Clearly we need Manquillo back soon and a new left back but it’s something to think about.

Agree with that. Either a 4-4-1-1 or a 4-2-3-1(wich I prefer).
Think it's something to do for next season. With a full preseason for everyone to get used to it.

Quite disturbed by the Dennis Wise rating on these two new guys, I know highlight reels show you the good bits and miss out all the Atsu/Dummet moments but they've got some skills between them.
Not sure where they all fit in but Lazaro has a good defensive sense and should make a good RWB.

VALENTINO LAZARO ✭ RED BULL SALZBURG ✭ THE NEXT SADIO MANE ✭ Skills & Goals ✭

They both seem to have a good eye for a pass so are probably going to be bewildered by the lack of movement in front of them.

► Nabil Bentaleb #10 ◄ ★ Goals, Skills, Assists ★ 2016/17 ᴴᴰ

Not sure how we fit everyone in the current system and can't help but wonder if Rafa was forced to pick a team from this current crop just what he would do, because if Bruce finds a way I'll have to begrudgingly give him a small measure of respect. We all know Bruce doesn't do tactics so its probably all academical.

Everyone fit hypothetical...

                Dubravka
       Schar Lascelles Lejuene
Lazaro                            Willems
         Hayden  Bentaleb
      Almiron              ASM
                  JoeL

Why Hayden? Of the four trad. CM's I think he is the best reading the game defensively. Why JoeL, who else have we got? With Almiron and ASM closer maybe there's marked improvement.

That's the best 11 I envisioned with everyone fit also :thup:

Really hope that's what Bruce has in mind.

However I can't help but think he will play Shelvey in there instead of Hayden, which would be unacceptable.

Quite a stretch since Bruce only plays Joelinton on account of he's the next 6ft plus striker after Carroll who is never fit.
