Unless Dummett and Ritchie are both injured or in need of rotating he won’t play

You reckon? Why have we signed him?

There's nee f***ing chance Dummett's playing LWB man, he'd be the worst at it.

Honestly, don't see a future for him if we aren't playing 4 at the back. He's s**** at LWB and he's poor at CB too.

Can't wait to see him Raiden down that left flank. At least he'll be used to playing in Sub-Zero temperatures as well. Hopefully he won't make a meal of anything.

Soon this will feel like a distant dream. Until then, may you rest in a deep and dreamless slumber

Rafa’s quotes imply competition and a non-certainty that he will adapt. He was at best second choice for his position out of the limited pool of loan players and he did not feature much for Monaco. You do get players from time to time that come in and don’t play much and I have an inkling he is going to be one of those.

Didn’t we just give him a long contract? Maybe Rafa’s thinking home grown quota for the Champions League in a few years.

He featured for Monaco until Henry benched him.

If Ritchie didn't smack that penalty in and we ended up drawing vs Man City I suspect most would want to see Barreca starting ASAP to provide the same attacking threat of PACE that we have on the right side with Yedlin.

Carlos Carvalhas on Sky saying he's very good going forward, and got great delivery. Sounds like he's going to give us the wing back option that Lukaku was lined up for, which adds much needed dimension to our squad. Could be a good signing, although he did say he needs to work on his defensive game.

What was he like at Torino?

I expect him to be s**** because Benitez doesn't have a great history of buying good fullbacks.

Carvalhas was raving about Almiron as well btw, reckons he'll be perfect for a Rafa team.

Those are the good things about him from what I have heard. I would like to know if he can defend well.

End product wouldn't go a miss either.

Not overly concerned at his defensive work right now, we need goals and creativity so I’m hoping he brings that side of his game and Rafa can work of his defensive discipline.

This is a wait and see but glad we have cover at LB. Hopefully he develops well into a useful signing

Any f***er is better than Manquillo and obviously gives decent competition to Dummet, so I really hope he hits the ground running. Gan ern Antoniooo

This chant should catch on:

"One in the chamber, thirty-two in the clip
Motherfuckas better strip, (yeah n-word, peel)
Before you find out how blue steel feel
Antonio Barreca, putting all the holes in ya sweater
The money-getter, motherfuckas don't know better..."

Dennis wise scouting highlights his crossing. Think he will play to rondon strengths. Almiron being left footed also will help us be less one dimensional.
