    Can we sign a CB please? I know we will never sign VVD or anyone, but itd be great if we unearthed a gem of a CB who makes our defence more solid!

    Id even push Godfrey up into midfield if we could get someone in! His pace, strength and defensive positioning would make him the ultra DM. Failing that, im sure Amadou would much prefer being back in midfield! Imagine Godfrey AND Amadou playing CM together, with Zimmermann (when he is back) and a new signing at the back! That would be pretty solid.

    I know any of this won't happen... but the title does say 'n tosh :)

    Warwick Davis was never destined to be a top flight CB

    I made the same mistake Gandy. Like minds or dodgy vision perhaps.

    Great comment re Tettey being much more disciplined.
    If we did sign him, DF could persuade him to eliminate his tendency to commit fouls.

    Outstanding might be too strong a word, but Emi has been our most consistent player according to WhoScored, where he is our top rated player at 7.23. Krul is our only other player over 7 at 7.14. Emi has 4 out of our 8 assists, with 2 each to Pukki and Cantwell.

    That highlights the lack of service to the front line from the rest of the players, especially Stiepermann, Leitner and McLean. Trybull and Tettey have more defensive responsibilities so it's more understandable in their case. Vrančić could make a difference when he returns, but until he does we need to improve the service to the front line without exposing the defence. IMO, if we lose Emi in January, our chance of survival will be next to nil.

    DF will have his presser tomorrow and I'm HOPING that he'll announce that Vrancic could at least make the squad.
    Also,I pretty sure that we could see Hanley back for our game against 'the Toffees'

    Here's a piece of that article which is missing from that version: "While Norwich are now struggling, the Spaniard continues to remain a creative force, and only Kevin de Bruyne (40) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (40) has created more chances than he has (28)."

    https://sportslens.com/report-west-...iano-buendia-during-the-summer-window/278748/

    Emi hasn't taken the PL by storm this season. But then, if the team were playing better, everyone would look better.

    ps. here's the squawka link from the article.

    Interesting that Emi's chances created (28) is 7 higher than James Maddison (21). That Emi is third highest in the PL is quite amazing, particularly given the way we've been struggling.
