He's barely played. Typical Jod. Be like saying Brewster is a flop.

Marco Silva has been too busy trying to save his job than play a proper team. He's played 288 mins in the PL so far. Just 2 starts.
Nothing like Brewster at all who is an academy player. Kean is a big money high profile signing from Juve. Comparing the 2 is utterly ridiculous.

Brewster is playing at a club that probably has the world's best front 3 though. The expectation was that Kean was going to be a success straight away and that Juve were crazy for selling him. Still, you obviously can't call him a flop. Give the guy a season or 2 first.

The point is they are both talented individuals that are not first in the pecking order according to current managers. They are both 19 (Kean being just a month older). Given how touted both are (especially given Brewsters U17 scoring for England), you can't call one a flop and not the other.

If you're good enough you play. He's obviously not showing enough to get minutes. So that's flop country.

Unless you're Marco Silva. Then you play if you're in his good books. Tom Davies has shown he is good enough, but he was behind Morgan Schneiderlin. You tell me who has been the better player this season. I'll wait.

With Willian only having 6 months of his contract to run I wonder if Mou comes after him now or waits to get him for free in the summer.

Bale is a non starter because of wages isnt he? Maybe RM could let him go for 10m odd allowing Levy to give him a nice fat signing on fee to cover the shortfall.

We've been linked with Mou's former right hand mand Campos (currently at Lille) as sporting director which will be much needed. He needs people he knows and trusts rather than just Rebecca Capplehorn, Levy and Hitchen. We've already raided Lille for our assistant manager, GK coach and analyst if we were to get their sporting director we should expect to see one or two signings from the Ligue 1 club.

Benjamin Andre (DM), Osimhen (ST), Ikone (W/ST) & Gabriel (CB) would all be useful additions.

Throw in possible Bale & Bruno Fernandes too? Linked to Ruben Dias of Benfica as well. Hopefully the proper rebuild really kicks off.

??? Dias/Gabriel Sanchez Davies
Dier/Andre Ndombele
Bale Dele Son
Kane
Matic and Willian too?

Matic if Dier doesn't impress him. Son will play the Willian role very well
Maybe Moura to play that Willian role while Son on the left with a license to roam like Mou gave Hazard in the 2014 season.

Dier(Matic role) and Eriksen(Fab playmaker role) in the pivot.

Kane up forward and Dele just behind him sort of as a 10. Like Oscar did for us.

Hes not going to play pretty football but it'll get results .

Moura is more direct and doesn't really have a great final ball which is what I think Willian brought to your side. Maybe Lamela for that role. Or ideally Bruno Fernandes.

Agree on the Hazard/Son and Oscar/Dele. Eriksen I think will be shipped off in January with either Lo Celso given that chance or a new player for the role. I think Eriksen is probably ahead of Levy for most supporters for who is to blame for the clubs poor start.

Scary thing for the club is there is no real clear role for record signing Ndombele or young Ryan Sessengon. Lo Celso is only a loanee so if there's no role he is gone in the summer but from the look of him he could play that pivot role well.
