    Dembele for Perisic? Think I'd be okay with that.

    Not a straight swap. Perisic is old. I'd prefer not to have a repeat of Llorente. Now if its 25 mil and Perisic then I'm cool with it

    Perisic is not an upgrade of any kind I don't think. A good player but not one that would help us. Rather have the cash.

    But he's a winger and a 2nd striker. You think he'd really bring value to the club? I doubt he could finish most games.

    Not sure, I haven't seen enough of him to judge. United were interested so i'm figuring he's pretty good! If we were to need to sell Moussa i'd rather we got straight out cash and reinvested in a top quality younger CM though

    Unless I heard wrong, they were offering 25 mil for Moussa. In that case I'd rather have Perisic. If it's 40 mil, I'd certainly rather have the case. But I agree we could do much better than him.

    A slightly more talented Chadli. Not really what we need.

    Thing is we don't need a bunch of guys holding down stools anymore. We need two or three game changers. I don't think that's him. Could be wrong but I don't think so.

    Will be sad to see Mousa go. Not really sure why he wants out so badly. Doesn't like London? Wants trophies? More money? Seems the latter two are available to him here. Question is how do we replace him? Levy will have to pull off some magic. He will be tougher to replace than Toby imo.

    I think it's to do with length of contract. I think he wants one more long deal and we only want a short extension, given his age. So it's one of those situations than is understandable from both sides, which I think is why there seems to be no hostility between him, the club and the fans. Everyone is being reasonable.

    I'd really like this to happen. I'm a big fan of loans and don't really like "older" youth players hanging around getting a few games per season. I like a couple of years on loan, when they play 80-100 games and only come back to our first team squad when they are at a level when we'd consider buying them for our 1st 11 or close to it.

    Agreed. Someone I really hoped would become a fixture at the club as a player and then a coach.

    NB: leaving New York tomorrow after a month. Spent the last week in Brooklyn near Prospect Park. Awesome. Love the architecture but above all the people. Great vibe. To hell with midtown.

    lol, I am a native New Yorker and the people drive me insane! Slope is really nice though. Brooklyn in general is quite a unique place. I'd really love to leave but can't find any place better, so here I stay. I lived in Manhattan for 10 years and would never move back. And midtown is a nightmare from hell. Just way too crowded and noisy. I like people, but not that much! Glad you enjoyed your stay though.

    Loved it. We will be back as my youngest boy is Downtown. He will see the light and move to Brooklyn.
    Parts of Bristol in the UK have the same vibe on a smaller scale. I love Bristol.

    I'm really not a big fan of loans, but I trust Ajax to treat him well and make him a better player. My hope is that Foyth goes there as part of a deal for De Ligt. Then he stays a year or two, ready to step in when Jan leaves.

    No doubt watching the weather and sampling the food.

    The reason I like them is because if I look at the best players we've developed in recent years, who are Kane and Rose, they both had plenty of senior football, on loan, before getting into our match day squad regularly. Then if you look at the youth players we've bought to the club who have been successful, such as Ali, Dier, Walker and I suppose Sanchez also, they played lots of senior games and were ready to play for us when they arrived or in the case of Walker, more loans then the 1st team.

    I just don't see the validity in the arguments for keeping them around the squad for a handful of games. I know the arguments people use to promote that idea, but I just don't see the evidence that it's even remotely as successful as using the loan system. I don't get why Poch does it. I think Onomah wasted 2 years of development. I think KWP should have been on loan last season.

    Look at Jack Grealish. It seems to me that the single best thing that has happened in his career was Villa being relegated. He seems to have massively benefited from playing week in week out for the last 6 months. People say Bruce is a dinosaur, but surely the fact we are apparently trying to buy a player who he has given consistent game time to suggests regular football is more important than being around a top coach.

    On top off all that, if you look at the players we've developed, that play either top tier or second tier football and often sold for decent fee's in recent years, I think every single one had plenty of loan football. Ward, Pritchard, Mason, Carroll, Townsend, Fredericks, Smith, Caulker, Luongo and O'hara were sold for over £50 million.

    I honestly think Poch's biggest fault is keeping players around that are too good for youth football, but not ready for senior football. He thinks they benefit more from training with the 1st team squad, but I think he's plain wrong. If you look at the England squad (i know not the best talent pool, but the only international side purely from the Prem), the only players who didn't go out on loan, were those already in the 1st team at 19 or younger.
