    Yep. Bellingham, Daka and Konate, perfect

    People shouldn't under estimate the importance of our having 2 commanding CBs who are excellent in both boxes, 3 with Matip, so we're hopefully able to field 2 in practically every game, our set piece return is down massively because we've played most of the season without a single commanding CB or viable target for our full backs to pick out, or who occupies so much attention from opposition defences that our lads can be briefed at HT where they can pick out one of our other players as we did so many times in winning the league, having 2 commanding Cbs at attacking and defending corners practically every game will be absolutely massive for us

    Belligham's young yes, he has shown he can mix it with the best, he is 6ft 1in, he will grow into a beast of a man, we need a more creative midfielder who plays the kind of passes and displays the football intelligence he has in his locker, we need our English contingent, he would be pretty expensive, but he will only get more expensive, he will have Hendo and Millie to mentor and look after him, Countinho used to occupy our left side on midfield and look how lightweight he is.

    We need a player with Bellingham's type of passing, the type of passing that we needed to add to midfield before we bought a player with Thiago's type of passing

    Look ay Harvey Elliot this season on loan, the Championship is even more physical than the Prem and he's a young lad, look at Arsenal's best midfielders, still there and on loan in the Prem, they're all more slight than Bellingham and they haven't struggled and Arsenal's young midfielders and attacking midfielders have been their best players this season

    Well Fab can go, we don't need a destroyer for how we've evolved to play

    That's my gripe with him, I think he is an absolutely superb destroyer, don't get me wrong, but we don't need a destroyer at No6 with how we play, we need a player who is more positionally astute and a lot better with the ball, like Hendo and need to bring in another No6 with those attributes (Bellinghams for our much better protected LCM slot btw)

    The thing with a destroyer is, it is in their blood, I kept hoping Fab would be coached into being more positionally astute as we need him to be in our set up, but I've come to the realisation that won't happen, every single fibre of a destroyer wants to constantly go looking for tackles, leave one on players and steam into situations they really don't need to trying to do that, you can't coach that out of a player.

    Because with our full compliment we so frequently leave 3v3 at the back, our 2 CBs and an opposition player hovering around where our No6 plays, for me at least, it's vitally important we have a more cultured positionally astute player at No6, because a destroyer will leave that player hovering in his area to get involved where he doesn't need to be, if they don't make the tackle or try to make it while blocking any pass to the player they have left, the opposition quickly have a 3v2 and I've just seen that happen far too much with Fab at No6

    Fab is an absolutely awesome out and out destroyer, i don't really class him as a DM or No6, they're very different players for me, sitting in front of a back four destroying at Real giving it simple to Modric and Kroos would be perfect for Fab, a perfect use of his considerable talents, i just don't think we need or can accomodate a destroyer as we play and have played at our very highest levels

    It's Real too you have to remember, how they're treated in their league and we're treated in ours are VERY different he's likely only pick up a booking for 1 in 10 of his leaving one on players in their league whereas for us, it's just about every one

    Looks like Konate is 99% a done deal, he's bloody impressive...him with Virg together could be a dream defence.
