Looks like we will rely on Mendy and Zinchenko at LB. We may need two midfielders. One to replace Gundogan, one to be Fernandinho’s successor. Wen Bissaka would be a shout if Danilo leaves.

There probably wont be any major changes at LB, although we need to. We will take the risk on Mendy again and he will stay.
Just one 'big' signing this summer, a midfielder, cant see a lot more.

Who the hell is Bruno Fernandes? Could be our new record signing?

Positions where I don’t feel we have two good choices. Goalkeeper, Defensive Mid, Striker.

Yes if you fancy him playing for 6-8 weeks with Ederson out. Do you?

He's been mint in Football Manager for 2 years.

I've read good things about him for a while, and I think we tried to sign him before.

Agree with this. We should be trying to have our youngsters as understudies providing that they are deemed good enough.

I do too. I see no point in wasting a non-home-grown slot on a player who will never play. And Muric has not let us down.

Watching the U17 euros. Ireland hosting it playing against Greece.
Gavin Bakuna playing in goal. City have him for €.5m.

He didn’t have a lot to do but looked decent with his feet. Confident anyway.
He doesn’t look very big though.

Just been robbed of a victory in the 95th minute with an offside not given, in the build up to the equalizer. Bastards.

Are we going to have a mass exodus in the summer?

With Komps, Mendy, Silva and Sane with a doubt. Also, Mahrez?

Unless we get a transfer ban, we could change five or six from those mentioned.

It seems harsh, but the squad always has to move on. It is not an old squad, but we don't want age to creep up on us, like it did with the fullbacks a couple of years ago, or develop too many sicknotes.

A hand full of new faces will freshen things up, provide competition, make it easier for Pep to motivate the squad and allow the players like Raheem and Kev to move to senior/leader status in the dressing room. So long as they are the right quality of course.

An additional plus will be that it will infuriate those who hate us spending.

Rumors regarding Joao Felix are getting more prevalent online. One such rumor mentions selling Jesus to open a spot, wages, and partially contribute to the transfer fee. I guess Im okay with that; I cant see Jesus being our #1 striker in the future.

Thought the rags had him 'in the bag' last week? well maybe not.....

This is shaping up to be the longest transfer saga of all time. We all know how thrilling they are :roll:

I see Chelsea's appeal against the two window ban has been rejected. They are now planning on taking the appeal higher. I would expect us to do the same should we be faced with something similar & then rape the market during the appeal process like our amigos in Spain although I don't know the terms and whether we would be allowed to do that..........?
