    He spends too much time out injured.

    He does, but he's not going to be a starter. Think he's a great option to have on the bench.

    That's unlikely to end up being more than 25-26 over the 38-game period you would think, unless City have a blinder against us.

    I don't think we're suddenly going to be able to bring that number below, say, 20 goals conceded for the season, perhaps even with Koulibaly. Would be interesting to Google for a bit on which teams have had the most water-tight records in our League and in others. We're certainly closer rather than further.

    I still think pulling away in more matches is probably a bigger priority really. 14 of those wins done by a single-goal margin remember.

    Even the Atletico tie I look at and think "yes, it's easy to blame Adrian" but had we scored a goal in the first leg we could have done things differently, or indeed had we got our second goal before the end of normal time in the second leg, we would be through. Difficult against arguably the best defensive side in World football, but we are meant to be one of the best attacking sides ourselves - we should have been able to find a way.

    Hopefully there is a bargain or two to be had out there, or money to be gathered from a Lovren sale (I'm sure Fabinho could plug a gap if we got stuck) or a Shaqiri sale, or indeed the 30% of any Luis Alberto sale.

    Had Covid-19 not happened we would be in an even stronger position, but I will certainly take being League winners with a squad that can challenge for the League and Champion's League next season.

    Saint maxim looks capable of warming our bench. I think he's a better player than traore

    Decent shout eggy mate. Difficult to tell in a poor team but he certainly stands out, would be cheaper with lower wage demands and less demanding of a starting berth.

    Newcastle will get a big pay day from him.

    any chance we get Willian ?

    on a free i think

    PL experience ... can add to squad depth

    has Brazilian buddies at Liverpool

    and scored against city to kill the game

    makes sense to me unless his wage demands are high

    Is he better than Origi?

    Pre-lockdown there was a lot of rumours linking us to Willian. Think he'd be a strong squad player for us.
