    Football: A New Hope

    On a totally different topic.. This showed up in my twitter feed today. I don't follow Jan Åge Fjørtoft, so I hadn't seen this before. But it seems I have to follow him now..

    I'm not sure if Liverpool are pressing as well as they can, but I am impressed by the short one-touch game Chelsea are playing in midfield.

    May be the wrong attitude, but should we ever compete in such a game, my main concern would be "no injuries, please."

    Iwobi done. Thank God. Now, Gibson or Feeney (or Holgate), the onus is on you.

    Okay. If we get Iwobi, I will be happy with this window. We certainly lacked a plan B with regard to CBs - Zouma was plan A, Smalling and Rojo smelled more of desperation. Thank God someone wanted to sell us Rojo instead of loaning him - I'd rather we went for our youngsters than a CB already proven not to be top half class. Zaha would have come with a hefty price, and great expectations - and he does have bags of talent - but, as I've stressed more than sixteen times so far, he hasn't shown that he can be a team player rather than a leading man. I do have doubts about his ability there. Iwobi is more in the mould we already have. I approve. Just praying our defense holds until Christmas..

    Marcos Rojo?? F*ck me, we could improve by promoting more or less any academy player instead. Rojo isn't even Smalling standard.

    We'll find out, I guess.

    Would choose Digne if you have the money. Better passer, and a killer shot at times.

    Longing for the season to start, so we can complain about actual happenings rather than signings..

    Just remembered that we still have Morgan Schneiderlin on our books. How the mighty have fallen..

    Gbamin is a DM. Solid according to A Horse named Stranger, but I've not seen him yet, so I don't know. However, we have yet to replace Zouma. Mina doesn't have his pace, Holgate has pace but lacks maturity (among other things). Gbamin, it was mentioned, could play CB. So it is possible to see him there as an emergency measure, seeing as we do have Delph/Davies who can play CM, and are PL quality.

    Don't see him in the first XI right now, as he has more or less the qualities of Gomes, but not the familiarity with the team nor the class on the ball. There is speculation that Gbamin will play CB if we can't get anyone in (Mina was ... uncertain ... last season), in that case he probably fills that gap. But he's no DM.

    ..and as Sky is now reporting any deal would have Palace compromise on their valuation, I think Iwobi would be the smart move. Pricewise, agewise, and fit-into-the-teamwise.

    Right now, with Zaha, I guess our first XI would be Pickford Coleman - Keane - Mina - Digne Gbamin - Gomes Richarlison - Sigurdsson - Zaha Kean Lots of question marks there.

    Individually, I think Zaha is better. But I also believe that he's better suited to be the big fish in a smallish pond, rather than a cog in the wheel. Iwobi would fit us better, I think. Not that I think we'll get him, mind.
