    Would be a fantastic signing for a fantastic price haven't really focused on his defensive abilities to much but I presume he would play an alonso type role for us?

    I am absolutely loving this business. What an absolute steal. We have enough depth in midfield to allow him time to recover properly anyway.

    Sounds like it's about time for a SNAG.

    Expect their chairman to make some crazy statements tomorrow and some lunitics claim that Germany is great at just about everything and we are shit.

    I think we both have the same view for how we want the window to go. If we're right everything else is a bonus.

    Not a ferna type, he's like a young Xabi Alonso but much quicker and more athletic. I suspect he will play the deepest for us with ferna and kdb or silva in a midfield 3 much like Bayern would protect Alonso with Vidal and add another creative player.
    There are some pretty nice you tube compilations of him showcasing his dribbling and incredible range of passing. I'm excited to see how he responds to the intense pressing we will see next year from Liverpool and Spurs. Could be the key to breaking the press down and getting our team more time and space on the ball.

    My biggest concern is that no one else on our squad can play that position like him and an injury would be really difficult to adapt to.

    excited about this signing.

    fit and on form, gundogan is worth double what we are paying for him in my opinion.
