It's strange one, the Barkley signing, because he's no better than RLC in my opinion. And Ruben's having a great season at Palace so my hope is that he'll come back in an even stronger position to challenge for a place next year.
Based on Bakayoko's performances this season, I'd put Drinkwater ahead of him (he knows the league, has title winning experience , has a great synergy with Kante and his distribution is far superior). And once RLC is back, I'd much rather see him in the lineup ahead of Bakayoko even if his performances aren't outstanding straight away. I think as fans we're a lot more tolerant of a youth player feeling his way into the team than we are an expensive foreign signing.
As far as transfers go, I'm dreaming but I'd love us to get Bertrand back or go for Sandro, plus get Aubameyang and Alexis Sanchez. That would be a sweet January window!
