Kwp has been really poor tonight. Looks like a youngster amongst men and lacks physicality. Appears to lack confidence and very unsure of himself. Players have easily gone past him a few times.
Glad he Is getting some prem experience but poor has Aurier is will still have Aurier over him all day.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
To be fair he's playing against the in form team in the league with some quality forward men.

I think I would have him over Aurier but neither is should be getting regular starts. At least KWP has some time to improve his game and learn, and try and bulk himself up if he can.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He is no where ready for the 1st team. Even his body language is negative. Aurier is bad but he is worse.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think you're being too harsh on him and basing it too much on one game.

He's strung together some very good performances recently and his performance today hasn't been as bad as even aurier was yesterday

It's less worrying to see a younger man make mistakes on the pitch than a very experienced one.

I agree

KWP looks so uncomfortable out there

Aurier at least looks sure of himself, even if none of us are
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I have to agree. You feel KWP is lost when he has the ball and you hassle him he will loose it.
Time will tell if he is good enough but he needs further loans .

It's quite apparent neither are good enough. KWP would be cheaper, though. And likely Aurier will want to be off after the news about his brother.

posted on 13/7/20

KWP would make more sense as backup - lower wages and can improve.

Aurier would fetch more money on a sale too.

Course this assumes Spurs get a first choice RB in. Considering how long a RB has been needed, that's no guarantee.

If it means losing KWP to secure Holberg it's a good deal. Probably have to put up some cash as well but we have a potential starter and someone who is stronger and more experienced than Winks.

You can say the same about Winks

Look guys...quit pissing about on this thread.
The first team squad needs 6 top quality players coming in to replace the (old/no good) guard that needs to go out.
Now get on Levy's case FGS!! ...

comment by Bales (U22081)

posted on 13/7/20

Yeah I really don't think we need 6 starters to come in.

3, maybe 4 depending on who goes.

"f I had my own way, I’d rid of the whole defence ( keep Toby / Verts as back ups ) and get a whole new back 4, but we all know this is unrealistic. So, for me its all about shoring up our defence, defensive midfield and please for the love of god baldy, go out and buy a decent striker to either compliment Harry or at least keep him on his toes.

I don’t want to hear this bulls** excuse anymore of “ who’s going to play 2nd choice to Harry “. Mourinho went 4-4-2 the other day, so clearly there’s room for another natural striker if need be. I would go all out and replace both full backs. Left and Right back should be the biggest priority this summer. A proper decent defensive midfield enforcer to, which will give GLC the freedom to go more attacking and hopefully rack the goals/assists up.


Then obviously an out and out natural striker to give Kane some competition. So breaking it down - Right back, Left back , Defensive midfielder and Striker. I would go all out for a top centre back to, but I’m trying to put my Levy bald cap on and think this is him we are talking about.

What priority are we going for in what order ? What players do you want ?"

**********

!!! RIGHT ON, DON.

I listed them by name up above somewhere, before your thread got waylaid by a bunch of faackarounds.

Hi Ted.

We could all sit here naming 200m worth of player's we'd like to sign but this isn't fantasy football. Plus we've already tried bringing in 7 players at a time. It's a complete chitshow.

Yeah, I know.
But Levy has buggahd about so long that it has to be done now....for next season.
Mourinho can try to get another season out of Alderweireld and Vertonghen...but its a gamble.
He has to get Ndombele onto the starting eleven.
And Kane is doubtful to start every game now.

So, at the least... LB and RB, an attacking midfielder (for Sissoko?) and a Kane replacement to share the load with Kane.
That's 3 or 4 depending upon your finances...no more "wrong Fernandes" FGS.

And just for the record...I'd trade/buy Upamecano no matter the cost.

posted on 13/7/20

Most likely loans and cheapies so can’t even be bothered making up a list. Our scouts will never get it right anyway.

Is Upamecano really that good? I can't say I watch the Bundesliga.

May be worth putting in a bid for Dybala, Ted.

Think Levy will have another go??

posted on 14/7/20

Id Try and Sell NDombele, Dele, Aurier & Winks.

I know its not fancy foreign players but I'd go after 3 from Southampton (Holberg, Ings & JWP). If any of the above can be used to get them then so be it.

I think we have to realistic in the type of players we go after in terms of cost and the fact we have no CL. Not saying they would set the world on fire but I think they would make us stronger defensively, Better balanced and give us a different way to play other than. sideways, sideways, sideways, sideways... Lump it to kane

In a 4231.......

*****************Hugo*****************

In a 433

Obviously you have Guys like Moura, Lamela, Sissoko, Davies, Sanchez, Parrot, Skipp off the bench

Lloris
Castagne Toby Dier Davies
Winks/Sissoko Hojbjerg
Lucas/Bergwijn GLC Son
Kane

Fack all creativity in that line up, literally nobody to unlock a defence. People are being too quick to discard Dele imo, since Eriksen left he is one of our few creative players. It is hard to expect Lo Celso to start putting up stats like what Dele (and Eriksen) has, so far he has zero goals and zero assists in the PL.

I`d swap Winkssoko for GLC and GLC for Dele

Dele๐Ÿ˜‚
Am sorry but when I look at the creative players in the league and how they caress and manipulate the ball and most importantly KEEP the ball , Dele is small time.
Dele is a box to box Player With good energy and can pop in with a goal here and there . If you need someone to take a game by the scruff of the neck,create and stand out he is not your man .
Many players are holding us back and he is one of them . Called it years ago even when Dembele was carrying him and his mistakes and got slated. Nothings changed .
