Proper chuckle at that.

Gueye (Everton), Forsberg (Leipzig), Lacazette (Lyon).

Be careful what you wish for.....

Even the greatest player in one league isn't guaranteed to be that great in another league.

Come now Dave... he COULDN'T be worse than Clownio, and from what I've heard of him, he's a beast of a man already....

Mind you, with Otamendi in front of him, I hope he remembered his gloves....

Have they sorted out his third-party ownership yet? I thought the PL stopped allowing them after the Mascherano issues.

Interestingly, if performance is only based on stats, Otamendi actually gets in the EPL team of the year but then so does Pogba so that must be complete horse's doodah

As you say he has got to be better than Clownio - full backs next on the list and a centre back to remove the Otamendi issue.

Current rumours suggest Walker, Mendy and Van Djik are next few targets all of whom are better than our current options.

I think the only hold up is his previous club own half his image rights so it's not 3rd party ownership as such.

I understand the excitement surrounding the signing of Ederson but I reckon there should be even more over Bernardo Silva.

Are you actually keeping any of your current players

Well if they're surplus to requirements, I'd be very happy if they sent Aguero and KDB to Goodison.

keeping a few maybe:

KdB, Auguero, G Jesus, Sane, D Silva, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Yaya, Kompany, Otamendi, Kolorov and, unfortunately Sterling.......

I think B Silva is indeed an exciting signing and can't wait to see G Jesus play a full season too.

We just need some full backs and may be Carvallho to play defensive midfield to complete the set (Alexis Sanchez would be a bonus but we don't really need him).
