Questions for the eds, Do you think Adrien Rabiot would be a good signing?

He'll be available on a free transfer but no doubt he'll want stupid wages?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

I think Rabiot would be a great signing for the Theatre of Streams.

Do we have any interest in the young Hungarian left back Kerkez, currently at Bournemouth?

DarwinTheGoat

{Ed002's Note - Milos Kerkez (LWB) Only joined in the summaer after picking Bournemouth over Lazio for game time. Down the list for Chelsea who have a much preferred target.}

He is not getting much game time at all he has been dropped for some shocking performances. Nowhere near good enough for Liverpool I would forget his name as you won’t be seeing it much at our end of the table.

Given the Age of Bajectic, wouldn't someone like Kimmich be a more realistic option for the CM/ DM position. Do you know if we hold any interest? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - €90M plus for a 28 year old on €400k per week?}


1.) 07 Jan 2024 09:37:50
Seen them figures alright, sheer lunacy that.


2.) 07 Jan 2024 10:58:30
Kimmich would be a terrible signing. He’ll be 29 in just under a months time, Bayern want stupid money for him, he wants £400k a week and at his age it’s a big ask to adapt to the pace of the league, given that he’s got quite a cushy number playing for the most dominant team in Germany.


3.) 07 Jan 2024 14:10:47
What's wrong with Endo?


4.) 07 Jan 2024 15:04:20
Got shades of the Thiago signing all over it at them numbers. Highly doubt there is anything in this.


5.) 07 Jan 2024 15:44:33
Agree 100% Johnny.


6.) 07 Jan 2024 16:18:32
Personally, I think he's world class and he'll only have 12months left on his contract at the end of the season so €90mil seems a bit too farfetched. We'd get a world class midfielder in his prime. Wages wouldn't be an issue with Thiago most likely leaving at end of season.


7.) 08 Jan 2024 04:33:24
he might be good but pretty certain 400k a week will cause issues in a team where only salah is on anything approaching that.


8.) 08 Jan 2024 08:28:14
It would be even worse thanthe Thiago signing. Very very expensive and he would be better suited to slower leagues.


9.) 08 Jan 2024 09:19:32
No danger they get €90m that will be a silly figure they've quoted. I'm sure if someone offered €70m or thereabouts Bayern consider it. Regardless with wages being excessive its a swerve even though he's a fantastic player.


10.) 07 Jan 2024 09:29:20
How much did the Saudi’s offer for Mo? Isn’t Mo older than Kimmich? Perhaps obsessing on numbers we fans should stick to opinions about players’ capabilities?


11.) 08 Jan 2024 11:14:36
This has Manchester United written all over it.


12.) 09 Jan 2024 06:59:32
We don't need another midfielder, we just need Bajectic back fit again. Focus should be on VVD and Salah's long term successors.


13.) 16 Jan 2024 09:36:38
beat me to it robbie23, that had united signing all over it, there is certainly feeling of changing of a guard at bayern that's coming, Kimmich, Muller, Sane all been in the rumor mill a lot of this past couple months.

Thinking about players like Bajectic, Elliot, Gravenberch, Bradley and Quansah. It would be a shame to see them stagnate and not get enough minutes to fulfil their potential.

DarwinTheGoat

1.) 25 Jun 2024 05:50:05
I think that’s called overthinking mate.

All those players named will have a full pre season with Slot so if anything they have an advantage over the players away in tournaments to impress the manager and learn his system and methods.


2.) 25 Jun 2024 07:33:53
Looking forward to seeing who this years Bradley and Quansah will be.


3.) 25 Jun 2024 08:03:10
Whether they fulfil their potential is completely down to them.

If they work hard enough and are good enough they will play. Simple.


4.) 25 Jun 2024 07:33:03
Slot's got a great reputation for developing young players and putting his faith in them.

If they're good enough, I believe they'll get there chance. I've no ITK sources, but just have a gut feeling that one of the main reasons we've been so quiet in the market is that Slot wants to have a look at what he's got and has probably advised Hughes to hold fire. Normally we like to get our business done nice and early but that's not easy when your head coach hasn't had a chance to work with any of the existing players yet.

They will all get there chance in my opinion. Of all our u21 players, the 5 you've listed are the exceptional ones who have the best chance of making it but they need to stay grounded and earn their stripes. You could possibly throw Morton, Beck and Carvalho in there too but they're much more up against having only really made an impact on senior football at a level below the Premier League so far. Clark, Danns and Doak will also be looking to build on their cameo roles.

I'm backing Slot to give them all a fair chance mate. You do hear quite a few murmurs about Bajcetic's professionalism lately though. Time keeping is apparently an issue with him. He wants to be careful because with the season Morton has just had, plus a new manager coming in, first impressions count for a lot. He could slip down the pecking order if he doesn't demonstrate he's fully committed to his craft. Morton is no mug.


5.) 25 Jun 2024 08:21:18
Think Chambers has a chance to impress also, maybe Doak and Gordon.


6.) 25 Jun 2024 09:52:18
Bradley is definitely becoming a top player. There is no question about that.


7.) 25 Jun 2024 10:49:45
@June - won’t this years Bradley bad Quansah be Bradley and Quansah?


8.) 25 Jun 2024 11:25:26
DarwinTheGoat, Im having difficulty understanding the premise of your post. Do you think these players will not get playing time? Do you think they will not have the opportunity to prove themselves? If that is true then, we will have to wait and see BUT for the likes of Elliott, the kid has proved himself, IMO.

The others like Baj, Grav (both especially) have a lot to prove. Quansah and Bradley just need to up their game and improve as they have already shown they are at the level to compete for a spot in the starting 11, IMO.


9.) 25 Jun 2024 11:52:30
There are even more games than usual this season with the new CL format so everybody will get their chance. They have all proven enough to be considered as permanent members of the first team squad. I agree with Oli that Elliot shouldn't be lumped in with the others - he was starting games ahead of Szobo at the end of last season, he is part of the core midfielders.

The bigger questions are who will take that chance when it comes and who will be needed to play more than expected due to whatever injuries we pick up throughout the season.

Quansah and Bradley need to show that they can kick on and continue improving, Baj needs to first of all show that he is fit and then that he can get back to his pre injury level (and beyond) and Grav need to show he can live up to his potential from a few years ago.


10.) 25 Jun 2024 14:08:58
What ShipleyKopite just said, lol.


11.) 25 Jun 2024 14:09:14
Hopefully not West?see what you mean but i want our brilliant academy to keep churning them out.

I'm pretty sure Everton would demand at least double whatever we offer.

I think the best move we can make is similar to what spurs did with Kane. Sign him up to a 5 year deal and promise him he can leave if he wants next year.

£100 mil.

We should loan out one of Jones or Grav, they won't progress sitting on the bench.

Ed 25 keeps saying he's yet to see the clips yet has no problem making judgements on his limited information. What else can we expect from a blue nose.

Jota is not a LW. Diaz can also play on the right and I think he's better there too.

We need to play a settled 11 in the league. Play the kids in the domestic cups. When klopp won the league he played the kids in the cups, same when we won number 6.
