The Gutter: Little Fekir

If we are in the market for a backup goalkeeper.. what is wrong with Danny Ward?
Was expecting more about Fekir himself
Was hoping to hear about Fekir as well. Good pod regardless. Would it make sense to have Gutters go very in-depth about ceritified transfer targets? Pearce confirmed our interest in him.
Wait wait wait
Since when is losing all these a normal season?
clyne starting rb all season early
Lallana early all season
Can season ending
Matip season ending
Gomez season ending
Lovren and Henderson on and off
Mane for a while
This is a lot!!!!
And Chamberlain season ending too
this is the problem – you simply can’t have an unending squad of +1 options.
The weird thing is we lost 2 RBs, 2 CBs, 2 holding mids in Can and Henderson for periods, 2 transition midfielders (Lallana and Oxlade).
Its really unfortunate to lose both of your options in very specific positions but you simply don’t go and buy a 3rd or 4th option in the summer just in case. It really doesn’t work that way, what does happen is the manager earns his wages by using what he does have.
The obvious alternative to Jorginho is Julian Weigl. His ceiling is sky high & he’s better defensively than the Napoli man. Bad injury last season & contracted till 2021 though. The type of midfielders we go for will reveal so much about how the team plays going forward. A lot hangs in the balance.
