Welcome to our new no.5!

In the 'forward four' positions we are likely to play we currently have Rashford, Martial, James, Lingard, Sanchez, Mata, Greenwood, Gomes and Chong. I really can't see Ole/ Ed splashing out on a 10th player to cover these four positions so a forward/ winger/ no.10 isn't happening before Thursday IMO.

In terms of the 'no.6 and no.8' positions, we currently have McTominay, Pogba, Matic, Andreas, Fred. 5 players (Garner will go on loan IMO) for two positions is light, we MUST sign a CM surely?

So who's your money on chaps? I have a feeling SMS will come in from Lazio for the 70m that we will receive from Inter for Lukaku.

i think we are done now in the window now.

we should have got the maguire deal done sooner then we could have had the last 2 weeks of the window looking at options for central mid

we have lost the wig and Herrera who need replacing imo.

We need PP in the side. Who else is there to create an opportunity for the front three other than him?

I do however think that Ole will play him more and more in the no.10 role in a 4-2-3-1 system after being unable to sign Dybala etc. though, due to the aforementioned lack of tracking back. Then two of McTom, Fred, Andreas and Matic will sit behind him.

Mandzukic would be really sensible in my opinion:

- back up striker
- plan B in terms of a physical presence
- still a really good finisher
- hard worker
- great professional for the likes of Greenwood to learn from for a season or two

Get this once done, Ole!

Anyone else on here wishing we go for Zaha?

Martial, Rashford and Zaha would be electrifying on the counter, then Pogba could almost have a free role with McTom/ Matic/ Fred/ Andreas sitting behind him.

He’d be a fantastic signing.

Everyone here championing our youth players and moaning about a Dybala-type player blocking the rise of Greenwood, Gomes etc. should be ecstatic with Mandzukic - hard working, model professional who has probably got 2 years left in him where he can show our youngsters how to be model professional attacking footballers.

Sign him up!

He’s not good enough for my Sunday morning side, so no.

Personally I’d keep him and make him third choice (Bailly would be third but for his injury) and look to sell/ give away Rojo. However I think Ole sees Jones as his third choice so will probably loan Axel out.

I’ve not been a Smalling-hater as much as some, but I really worry about him now with VAR, he could conceivably give away a penalty a game. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if someone like Newcastle came in with £15m for him now that we’ve signed Maguire.
