Just a bit of fun I know we've dropped way down the pecking order in terms of being amongst the elite in Europe now but who would everyone like to see brought in this summer. I see it very unlikely we sign a new striker after spending 70 million on Morata so I doubt we'lol sign Icardi I think Michy coming back is an option for us though to replace Giroud if he leaves.

• Oblak/ Allison (GK) - Move Courtois on I'm sick of hearing him talking about leaving he's so negative and tbh he's a good keeper but not the world class one I was expecting him to be he can be replaced by these two.

• Alderweireld (CB) - We need a leader who can boss the defence and who is experienced to partner Christensen. Unlikely but we need someone of his type.

• Alex Sandro (LB) - I like Alonso as a WB but he isn't class and if go to a back 4 next year his pace and defensive qualities won't be good enough so I'd try Sandro again.

• Vidal (CM) - A couple of true box to box players is what we need not these one dimensional types like Bakayoko and Drinkwater. Im a massive fan of Luiz there too if we change to a 4-3-3. Also Van Ginkel definitely deserves his chance there. I'd also bring Willian into the centre like Isco and De Bruyne do for Madrid and City Willian has got the work rate and quality.

• Bailey (LW) - Now this is someone who is highly likely and will take us to the next level. He is dynamite and he's a big Chelsea fan. This position needs sorting this summer we haven't replaced Robben since he left. Bailey, Morata/ Michy and Hazard as a front three depending on whether Eden stays could cause damage next season I still think Morata could come good.

My Outs to raise funds:

Courtois, Cahill, Pedro, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Alonso, Kalas, Kenedy, Giroud.

I meant Giroud leaving as we’ve got Michy coming back? I’d give Batman another go he’s banging them in for Dortmund we just need to change our style.

Mr KingFrank, are seriously talking about M. Alonso being sold? I don't support selling Bakayoko and Kenedy yet, may be watch them for another season.

I am also tired of Courtois' complaints, Allison and Oblak are good replacements.

I would like a central box to box midfielder.

Currently being linked with, Alderweireld who is 29 and has a buyout clause of £25 million.

Apparently Varane is valued at £50m, but I don't see us linked with him.

I'd prefer the latter, mainly for longevity, but Alderweireld is a warrior and a leader too, which would help us.

Who of the two would you opt for?

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 13:38:56
I think Alderweireld is the better defender of the two, and would prefer him. But I don't know if we need him? We've got Zouma, who might deserve a go?

Agree1 0Disagree

TA had the prem experience and is one one best in league, but varane is younger quicker and great on ball, and better long term option. Could have long relationship with christensen, but leave Madrid for chelsea? Don’t think so personally.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 19:32:09
We lack leaders more than anything and Alderweireld will also do Christensen the world of good he’d be the best option as Zouma is still young too but it ain’t going to happen and neither will Varane.

won't happen.

EmilSC, did you just say that Alderwerield is better than Varane? I truly can't get my head around that.

{Ed018's Note - he is better than Varane}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 23:19:45
I think he is far ahead of Varane as a true defender. Varane is good but his pace helps him out a lot when you watch him play.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 08:18:49
Really? wow, if the Ed confirms it then it must be so. Wow! This one is really hard take-in cos something in me will always pick Varane ahead of Alderwerield.

{Ed001's Note - I am with Ed018, Varane is faster but not half as good overall as Alderweireld. Alderweireld is excellent defensively, really strong, really good on the ball and fully capable of playing right back or defensive midfield too. He just lacks genuine pace, though he is not slow, just not quick.}

Agree0 0Disagree

Alderweireld is only available at £25m if he agrees to a 1 year extension to his contract - we're looking at £40+m.

I can't believe people would like to see Luiz leave this summer. We lack leaders in this squad and only him and Azpi come close to it.

Why not play him in midfield next to Kante? Them two would be class together in the centre. You would have Luiz who's very good on the ball as well as a physical presence to make up for Kante's height. That would also give Hazard and Willian more freedom too. It's personally a no brainer for me when he's back from injury. Luiz is also capable of banging one in from distance too an he's the only one of our midfielders who can.

Nicely put KingFrank, and in the absence of sublime alternative our legendary number 8 likely to approve.

One of very few leaders in team, huge character that all squads need.

Sorry presses send with only half a team

Courtios (only just)
Dave (rcb) Christensen (cb) Rudiger (lcb)

Zappa (rwb) Luiz (dm) Alonso (lwb)
Willian (cm) Kante (cm)

HAZARD (am/ cf)

Morata (st)


zappa offers more width and is a better attacking option

luiz superb on the ball better DM I believe because he has a mistake in him, plus he can play which he suits DM.

Willian has superb energy. great forward runs which would suit cm plus he can defend to.

courtios only just gets in my team because of his age and what he could become, but Willy hasn't done nothing wrong since joining . been our best 2nd keeper in a long time.
