For the people still saying we do not need signings are not foreseeing the possible, and fairly likely, future. Who's to say another player is not going to pull up injured? It could be about 'luck', but realistically these injuries are occurring due to overplaying. For all we know Lamela could be gone next game as he's injury prone or Winks could end up like Sissoko.

If we're not already fearing for our top 4 chances, ONE more injury would make the dreaded outcome a reality imo.
even if 8 more players got injured for the next 4 weeks, at the moment we can only sign 1 more unless Levy changes his stance on paying senior players that are not in the squad

No because Son, Eriksen and Moura are very average and can’t hit a barn door. Get over yourself.
Rather ironic from a poster who can’t handle a pundit saying something without deciding they have a grudge against us.

Anyway, there is nothing to get over. It’s my opinion and I stand by it. Hopefully I’m wrong.

I don’t give a dang when pundits have a grudge or grip against our club but I do have a problem with fans being negative when our Manager is doing his best with the tools he has been given. And he’s doing a dam good job too.

Well I can’t disagree with that and never implied anything to the contrary.

Go get Will McKennie from Schalke. 20 years old. Has played and scored in CL and Bundesliga as either a number 8 or 10. Covers a lot of ground and can press then transition quickly to offense. Could be cover for multiple positions and is already used to playing against Dortmund. Would also increase our shirt sales / marketing $ in the US. Would have a chance to be really good long term under Poch.
And he was great in the Inbetweeners

Weston McKennie

Agreed though. He’s grown a ton in the last couple years and has played all over the pitch for Schalke this season, though he’s probably best as a box-to-box midfielder.

I think we will have to phase Wanyama in carefully. The last time he played without match fitness he was atrocious and we wouldn't want him to get injured again immediately...

Thanks for the correction. Typed faster than I was thinking.
