Got decent squad depth for a 3-5-2 formation now.

GK: Dubravka / Woodman
CB: Schar / Lascelles
CB: Fernandez / Clark
CB: Lejeune / Dummett
RWB: Yedlin / Manquillo
CM: Ki / Shelvey
CM: Diame / Hayden
CM: Longstaff / Atsu
LWB: Ritchie / Barreca
N10: Almiron / Perez
CF: Rondon / Joselu

With also the likes of Darlow, Elliott, Kenedy and Muto knocking about as well.
We play 3-4-2-1 though.
We only have 2 CMs at the minute so have to play 3-4-2-1. When Shelvey and Diame are back fit and Ki is back from Asia we can revert to 3-5-2.

Almiron is better suited to the second striker role than out wide so I'd imagine that would be Rafas long term plan. Almiron has mostly played as a second striker in a 3-5-2 and as a CAM in a 4-2-3-1 (https://amp.theguardian.com/football/20 ... ssion=true)

Our business is done. We’ve had 4 weeks of fannying about so I don’t think we’ll pull off a signing in 3 hours.

No thanks!
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

I like the fact you've kindly put Atsu in CM rather than "Equally useless in any position".

If the £2m fee quoted is right, he'd be a steal on a pay per play basis. Still a right handful, I would imagine <ok>

Such is the level of greed in too flight football I bet the likes of Carroll and Sturridge (both millionaires many times over) would never accept a pay as you play deal and would rather hardly feature but take home their £100k-£150k per week salary.

Both would have been snapped up on loan by half the teams in the PL had they cared more about playing football than they did about money.

Someone I'd have liked us to sign (Mbaye Diagne) joined Galatasaray today for just £9m.
