I'm the only one that come here once in a while hoping to read news that the club is actually looking for another CF and Higuain deal is dead in the water?

We are so desperate that even the old fat boy looks like a light of hope at the minute.

Anyways this kind of signing is why we need a proper director of football. Any new manager needs at least one season till he gets rid of the deadwood the previous one signed. So the circle continues.

Tbh at this point we don't even need prime Higuain (although that version would obviously be very welcome). Sarri's system requires running of the channels and good movement and it's a killer only having 2 out of the front 5 that do those type of runs. I think/hope an extra body to make those runs alone would be an improvement.

The minimum requirement for Higuain will be to have an impact similar to what Eto'o did, and i think he's capable of such.

I will be content with just not having to watch the false 9 crap anymore. Besides Hazard can return to his position and see more of the ball.

Everything else is a bonus from Higuain. I agree with your points, but I also question and doubt his fitness and physicality. Playing in Serie A is completely different to the Premier League, as seen in many examples latest being our own midfielder.

Me too, buts its far too late in the game now, so we are stuck with him till summer. Hopefully he comes good. All the best options were never going to happen in January except Piątek, and he was only my 5th choice, after Icardi, Dybala, Werner, and Jovic, none of which could have happened now.

Small sample size but he coped quite well against Spurs when he faced them in CL just under a year ago and they are arguably the most physical side in the league. I'm not 100% convinced he will work but unlike with our current pair atleast we have some form of hope.

Higuain up top, flanked by Hazard and either Pedro or CHO, Emerson for Alonso, and use Zappacosta more against teams that we know are going to sit deep. Do these things and I think we'll finish top 4.

If we were going to bench Azpi in situations like that to favour a more attack minded player I'd rather stick one of our wingers there (Pedro or Willian) and at least have some proper attacking thrust.

I've never seen anything from Zappacosta both defensively or offensively where I'd want him playing to be honest.

Sarri will never bench Willian, who has had one goal, one assist in our last 13 league games. That's 3 and 3 for a full league season. He will ride him down into the pits of 6th placedom. We need to remove him as an option by selling him.

If we go into next season (after the August close of summer window) with no Eden, no CHO ,and a starting front 3 of

LW Willian

RW Pedro/Pulisic

CF Higuain

We are fucked for the year. May struggle to finish 7th if 2 of the middling teams have mini versions of a Leicester-type season.

Imagine too, if this 2 year transfer ban hits starting in January 2020. Bye-bye Chelsea in terms of European football if we don't REALLY do mad business this summer.

What I said could not have been more clear in the game over the weekend. It was sickening to watch...

Dead right.

Its like not one of them gives a toss about putting the kit on. There's no sparks. Not 1 speck of urgency.

You might understand the odd lazy git or a dose of couldntgiveashititus but its all of them

And for Eden to say he was happy with his performance that puts the icing on the cake. Needs to raise his standards me thinks.

Even if the club get this deal done today and signed off, I have a feeling that they may not announce it until tomorrow or if they do, it will be far later on.

It feels it would be insensitive to do so at the moment with everything going on regarding Cardiff's Emiliano Sala.

Barcelona just signed Boateng. Before that they signed Vidal, and freaking Paulinho. Ok, Boa is for a backup, but Vidal and Paulinho are not so much. At least Vidal wasn't meant to be.

Those are all low-risk businesses for positions they must cover, when clear option is not available or is too expensive... and some are complaining about Gonzalo Higuain.

I was striving for those kind of deals for years. I am tired of overthinking every f**ing team position and then ending up with likes of Morata, when we could've gotten Džeko for example for short term at low cost, and buy Icardi when the time is right. We are putting our heads through the wall with perfect signings, when sometimes we actually just need good or very good ones.

Really can't wait for it to be official.

If that were us the meltdown over KPB and Paulinho here would have been endless. Those are the signings no one wants here and rightly so. KPB is a decent player but absolutely no fit for Barca whilst Paulinho turned out good but was no way low risk, he was expensive, flopped at the only to pclub he played before, was well over his peak from the look of it and came froma non-competitive league. To splash out 100m for a world class player is waht we should learn from Barcelona's transfe rpolicy.

I misjudged those players then. But still I would like us to find smarter solutions when it's clear we cannot get our first priority.
