It's a shame Lucien Favre recently moved to Dortmund because he ticks all the boxes for me.

So it seems Renato Sanches has signed for Bayern. Really hope this won't be an ongoing theme this summer.

Just a question for the Eds or anyone else, with the Spanish, German and French windows closing in the next few hours I just wanted to clarify if this was only for purchasing players and they'd freely be allowed to sell to clubs whose window is still open?

Cheers!

They need to get the paper work into their respective fa's for incoming players. but can still sell players. I think it is the Russian league that closes in a couple of weeks and they seem to be doing business well after everyone else.

Thought as much but was beginning to worry a tad! Thanks for the response!

Out of interest Ed001, who do you think is our best outfield player if not Pogba?

SomersetRed

{Ed001's Note - Wan-Bissaka probably. Though I would take Rashford and Lindelöf over Pogba as well.}

Jesus Jaime, it must be exhausting living so relentlessly under grey skies.

Pretty sure Ozil ran about 1.5km further per game than Sanchez last season. I think his laziness is a myth. We've played well with Mata wide right this season and I'd see Ozil as an upgrade, so wouldn't be wholly against this at all.

Jackson, OutKast can't have escaped you if you're 22, right? Google Ms. Jackson - OutKast and thank me later. I'm sure no insults were intended.

Personally think Koscielny is as good as, if not better than Luiz. Tierney by all accounts sounds a good acquisition, but will he be fit enough to play regularly? Going forward they look very good, but their defence was a weakness last year and I don't think it looks any better this year either. Hopefully that holds them up, because going forward (and with Guendozi and Torreira a year older), they look very good.

Chelsea have Pulisic in for Hazard (I know who I'd choose) . Have let a lot of experience leave and I honestly don't know where their goals are coming from - Giroud has never consistently done it, Abraham scored plenty for Villa but this is a huge step up and their manager is similarly experienced at this level.

Spurs have acquired well - Ndombele will be the replacement for Dembele they needed, giving a bit of steel. Lo Celso sounds a good purchase and Sessegnon will likely progress and turn into a very good player. However, I'm unconvinced by their full backs and their Belgian CBs are another year older. They've also, once again, failed to sign a convincing back up striker to Kane (and have let Llorente go! ) . Son deputised very well in Kane's absence but I do think they lack the forward depth to challenge on multiple fronts.

We've solidified out defence and left ourselves pretty impotent up front, however I don't think it's all as bad as it seems. Our main rivals have strengthened well but generally have the same deficiencies they had last year. Us and Chelsea are both unknowns - it could go very well and the youthful exuberance amounts to something greater than the sum of it's parts. Or it could go tits up!

Regardless, roll on Sunday and let's have some fun watching a youthful team playing for the shirt in an attractive high pressing style (isn't that what we've all been asking for since LvG? )!

Hendon, di Maria and Draxler were two of their best players last night also. Do you think they'd have had the same effect with Neymar and Cavani on? It's all hypotheticals, but regardless of their team, to beat them with a midfield of Young, McTom, Fred and Pereira is ludicrous.

Agree with a lot of what has been said but want to add a mention to Pogba, who I thought showed a lot of graft today. He wasn't at his creative best, but with the injuries he played a little deeper and without Rashford's movement there was less for him to aim for - but despite this he got back and put in tackles and supported Shaw on the left side. It's something he's often criticised for not doing, but I thought he put a shift in today and deserves recognition.

Shappy - I was going to make the same comparison to Park prior to threading your comment. Although not the most talented, they seem to make the players around them better whilst often turning up with important goals in big games. Fergie often overlooked more talented players for Park or Fletcher in big games due to the work rate and impact they had on players around them. Sanchez on the other hand seems to like to occupy similar areas to Pogba and they may suffocate one another rather than continent. However, after a hectic Christmas period I see this as a good opportunity to bring Sanchez in and see how he gets on under the new manager.

Cheers Ed, appreciate your thoughts.
