  1. To be honest, the biggest problem, as identified by the man himself is central midfield. If they do not keep the ball the style is buggered and both Drinkwater and Baka cannot play that style, whilst it is also not the best style of Kante either (although he is so brilliant it probably will not matter). For me, we are probably still 1/2 CM's away from being able to play his proper 433 over the course of a season, as to do that you are looking at needing a midfield like - Kante, Jorginho, SMS, Cesc, Golovin/RLC, Ampadu.

    AC have signed Reina. Maybe this will help us with Donnarumma? Fanciful I know but I really do not want Hart an aging Cech or Butland in goal next year.

    Martial is over rated on here. Now do not get me wrong, he does show potential and has a high celing, however, his mentality is a big problem and his lack of progress over the past two years is a very big concern. For me he is a player that I would be happy to be brought in as a squad option with the hope he delivers on his promise. However, if anyone sanctions a £60m+ fee they need sacking as he has not shown anything near the consistency to deserve such a transfer.

    Yeah, if we could get SMS we would actually have one of the best CM's in the world. Kante, Jorginnho, SMS, Cesc, RLC, Drinkwater/Golovin would be insane and set for years. However, as you say it is very unlikely. As for AM we really need to get moving in that position as at the moment the only one's with certain futures going into next season seem to be Barkley, Pedro and H-O which is definitely not good enough.

    Yeah, another signing is vital. For me, I have accepted that Willian is off, which at £55m+ is ok. Personally, I would go after Zaha as he has asked to leave, knows the league, is coming into his prime and will not cost much more than Willian. Bailey and Pulisic are others, but they would both leave us with a very young set of AM's.

    I agree. I have been saying for years our biggest problem has been our CM as we do not have enough goals in there or players to keep hold of the ball. For me of the current lot Kante and Cesc are the only ones that deserve a place in the squad that wants to be top four.

    Where is that coming from? One of his CSKA buddies went to Twitter and said good luck at Chelsea. Most outlets are saying he will be with us shortly.

    We need at a bare minimum 1 AM before we even entertain selling. I get selling Will8an for £60m as that gets you a Bailey/Zaha (or almost). Pedro however, who do you replace him with for £25m that is better? For me he is exactly the profile of player you want for squad positions 14-21.

    Yeah Donnarumma with Cech as No.2 is probably ideal. I rate Alisson really highly but £67m is steep after one decent season in Europe.

    As much as I hate to say it, you have to give it to Liverpool with their signings. Having Fabio, Naby and Alison coming in is going to make them much more balanced.

    I can see us going for Schmeichel has he opens up a Non-HG slot. Personally I'm not much of a fan of his but there are worse GK's out there. My choices would be Alison and Donarumma but think the prices being asked for them are too high. That said, I want another AM as that position needs a proper winger.

    I really do not see Dave starting as a CB next year. A high defensive line at 5'9/10" is surely not a good idea in the PL and doubly so as he is not particularly quick and would be flanked by Alonso. For me Rudiger/Christensen start at CB and Dave is the RB. After that, I agree No.8 is indeed the area that needs most improvement as it is so pivotal in a 433. For me it will be Golovin backed by RLC, although if the SMS rumours can be believed it may be him and RLC....hence why Monaco think they have a chance at Golovin? As for Cesc I see him being Jorginho deputy. At AM I think we have a few issues. First is are Willian and Hazard still going to be here? I personally think Hazard will be, even if it is only for next year. Willian I reckon will be gone if an offer of £50m+ upfront comes in. In that situation we needed at a starting quality AM, as that would leave us with Hazard and a New AM as starters and Barkley, Pedro and H-O as back-up. As for Morata I think he stays. Only question for me at CF is if we will bring Bats or Tammy into the fold for this year or sell/loan them. I do not buy the Higuian rumours at all too much money for a 30 y/o. Only way that deal happens is if we can find some sort of Falcao agreement.

    £45m is too steep, at €40m I thought he was an ok signing but one that we were paying the going rate for. £45m is too much. That said, this transfer could just be speculation with the Italian press putting 2 and 2 together. Zouma lacks quality on the ball and his positional sense is not great - this is covered up to a certain extent by his ability to recover. For me he would be a disaster in a high line back four. That said the same could be said of Cahill.

    So, three weeks to go and still holes/lack of quality in a number of areas. For me, we are still another quality CM and AM away from having a decent enough squad to compete in a 433 and that is without any departures. For me, we need to get some players in quickly as otherwise we are going to be playing catch up.
