    So in his scenario where we lose 4 players possibly 5 depending on Mendy next summer and can’t replace them you think we would be fine because there’s alternatives in the squad already? We have a 22 man squad, one of the smallest in the league as it is, losing 4 takes us down to 18 players, one of them being Mendy. sure the quality is exceptional but the numbers aren’t anywhere near enough.

    I expect us to have a very busy January window, possibly even making signings whilst the window is closed to get ahead of any impending ban. Signing next summers primary targets in January and loaning them back to their club for the remainder of the season similar to what Chelsea did with Pulisic covers us. We know silva is leaving and need to replace him, so I expect that will be done in the next few months once this window is closed and we will soon know depending on contracts negotiations whether we will need replacements for Fernandinho and gundogan and likely have an idea on otamendi and Sane’s intentions. Will probably cost us more that way as we will likely have to offer more for a player to spread the cost and reduce upfront payments but it will be worth it when the alternative leaves us screwed for a season.

    Think we're about to sign a good young exciting Spanish prospect. He'll be one for the loan army though. Can't say much more, but i'm sure we'll hear about it shortly.

    Rags will be waving piles of cash at every half decent striker that has ever scored 20 or more goals in a season and might fancy a move. Desperation stuff.

    We will be a closed shop after tomorrow.

    Yep, it looks like it might be a good day. Lukaku is almost certain to leave. Training with Anderlecht and refusing to return the Manchester. Pogba continuing to agitate for a move away. Laughed off by Dybala and Eriksen.

    Star of Sky Transfer Centre - Jaydee Dyer, disagrees with his fellow pundits who judge we have had the best window. Jaydee reckons it is Liverpool who by signing nobody have preserved continuity.

    Bunch of wannabes with no stature or standing? Or fresh blood sweeping away the tired old faces?

    Any news on any of the older EDS players going out on loan? The EDS squad looks pretty bloated at present.
