For a change this season it's our defensive qualities which has let us down. Except for the bottom three it's only Newcastle and Sunderland who've conceded more goals. Without Lloris that would have been even worse.
North, find a secluded warehouse. I'll get the rope and chloroform....Anyone else joining in? :P
Ok, so who are your realistic (though optimistic) targets for the summer for the following positions:

In:

CM: Schneiderlin (please god please!!!!!!!!!!!!) £22 million

LW: Konoplyanka Free

ST: Martinez, Benteke or Lukaku £20 million roughly

CB: Alderweireld: £15 million



Out:

Paulinho £8-10 million

Lennon: £7 million

Kaboul: £3 million

Adebayor: £9 million

Fazio: £6 million

Total spend: £23 million

First Team:

---------------------Lloris------------------------
Walker-------Alderweireld------Vertonghen------Rose
---------------Schneiderlin--Dembele---------------
-Lamela/Townsend------Eriksen--------Konoplyanka--
----------------------Kane------------------------

2nd team:

----------------------Vorm--------------------------
-Yedlin--------Dier----------Vlad/Wimmer-------Davies
---------------Bentaleb-----Mason-------------------
-Lamela/Townsend--------Pritchard------------Chadli-
---------------------Lukaku-------------------------

Take all this with a pinch of salt please

I think with the new stadium on the way, we're not going to have any big purchases like you're describing up there. Also, a big purchase on a Striker is a bit rough on Kane, considering the season he's having. Do you spend 20m on a striker so he can be a back up?

Considering we just got Paul Mitchell, I think we're going to see a lot of lower cost, low risk/high reward type buys. We may get one purchase over 20m for CM considering the need for it, but even that might be a surprise.

Out: (Probably only 4 or 5 of these)
Kaboul
Capoue
Ade/Soldado
Lennon
Fazio/Vlad
Paulinho/Dembele

In:
Wimmer
Ings (or similar low cost lw/st)
15-20m CM

We've got Alli, Pritchard, Onomah, Kyle Walker-Peters, Fredericks, (and probably at least one more) youth players looking to fill out the bench/cup games...I think we can expect a lot going out and not much coming back in.
If we get rid of both Soldado and Adebayor we definitely need someone coming in. Surely Soldado would like to go elsewhere to try and get some actual football before he retires. What Kane's 2nd season will be like we'll just have to wait and see.
anyone going to the tottenham match in colorado?
All stars match?
I've been expecting that Lloris will leave.
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/apr/21/hugo-lloris-tottenham-champions-league
+1
Doesn't convince me at all.

Real Madrid will go after De Gea. PSG can't afford Lloris and will probably go for Petr Cech. Lloris would prefer to stay in the Prem, as the article suggests, and there's no way Levy will let him go to Man Utd.

I expect him to give Spurs another chance and Poch one more season.
+1
I'm OK with this as long as we get a decent fee out of him. Who are the possible replacements we could get?
Lloris just signed a contract last June/July if I can remember correctly. So he wont go for cheap. But knowing Levy, he'll probably accept an offer from Real Madrid for like 30M + a young player. Tbf, Lloris definitely deserves to play in the Champions League.
OR THEY COULD GIVE US BALE BACK AND TAKE LLORIS. One can dream, right?
We need to give everything to hang onto Lloris. The difference between having a good goalkeeper and a amazing goalkeeper is absolutely huge in today's football.

If he goes, I want 40 mill.
+1
I totally agree with Paddy. Lloris singlehandedly (lol) saved more than half a dozen games with his unreal goal tending. We got points from games we had no right to, and his presence between the sticks saves us from being back in 8th.
In reality though to expect half of the world record fee to paid out for a goalie is ambitious. I think a really decent defence is more important than a really good keeper, as we've seen, he's done well this season and we've still conceded a bucket load.
In an age where PSG pays 50m for David Luiz - labelled as a CB. Other mediore CB's like Mangala costing in the regions of 30m.
Lloris would easily command a fee of 40m from a team that wants a worldclass keeper. I'm sure PSG would easily snap him up at that price if they weren't already under scrutiny with breaching FFP rules.
Will be interesting to see who Real Madrid gets in to replace Iker Casillas. De Gea would likely be top of their list but United won't let him go easily. I could see them break 30 mill to get Lloris, probably more for De Gea.

Edit: I see De Gea only has 1 year left of his contract and refused renewing it. So Man United could very well be the ones come knocking for Lloris!

Mirallas from Everton; discuss :)
If we can get him in a straight swap for Lennon, that would be great. He's a dynamic player and is much more of a goal threat. Also adds to our number of Belgians.
I think you mentioned Konoplyanka a while ago Paddy? I like us to go for someone like him. But if we could get Mirallas I'd have no complaints.
I can't see how he is any better than Chadli to be honest. Waste of a transfer in my opinion.

The thing that Mirallas offers is flexibility. He can play any of our front 4 to a decent level. I don't think he that great a player but flexibility can be valuable to a squad that lacks depth. We certainly lack quality in our depth so Poch would probs consider him to be much more useful than Lennon. I love little Lennon but he only has one position and style of play which doesn't even fit into our inverted wide men style of play
YES! YES! YES!
Can someone explain why our second goal wasn't ruled out for offside? We had like 4-5 players clearly offside when the FK was taken and yes, none of them touched the ball, but it's quite clear at least one of them tries to head it.

Does that not count as interfering with play?
+1
I think it's a bit of a grey area in football.
SS, that's the issue with the offside rule. Passive offside leaves a lot of scope for discretionary decision-making.
The literal rule of offside, if a player touches the ball or impedes the goalkeeper's line of sight, then it is offside.

Seeing as none of our players touched the ball or affected Krul's vision, they are not offside.

However, common sense should dictate that if a player goes for the ball, then it should be ruled offside as it obviously affects the positioning and decision making of the goalkeeper. But this isn't the case.... i aint gna complain to be honest. Eriksen needs that type of luck after hitting the crossbar twice now with his previous freekicks, he's had a dry run of 12 games without a goal. Time for him to get back on the scoresheet more regularly. Plus this is a decision that has gone against us numerous times and is one of the many laws in modern day football that needs to be amended.
Only 1 possibly 2 was in an offside position. There was a silly Newcastle player playing most of them onside including Kane and bentaleb who where the only 2 who troubled Kruls brain. Nothing wrong with that goal, good call Lino

We was owed one anyway, Ayoze (good player) was offside for their goal
Upon closer inspection, I think you are right Bwf. Bentaleb is onside and I think Kane is level as the ball is played. They're the two players who make a go for it. Credit to Eriksen for the ball in.

How disappointing was Lamela in that match! I lost count the amount of times he gave the ball away. Then he just stands there holding his hands up like someone should've been there to receive the pass.
+1
On the other hand, he did make good forward runs but no one seemed to want to pass to him. It's going to take time to integrate him into the team, Townsend has been first choice for a while now.
+2
Agreed with both the above statements.
All he does is lose the ball
We were mediocre, Newcastle were bad. Danny Rose MOTM imo.
+1
I thought Paulinho and Bentaleb looked pretty solid throughout the match, Jan looked solid at the back too.
I'm glad Danny Rose has proved the haters wrong. I always knew he would come good.

Paulinho was in no way solid. I don't see how people can still suggest he deserves to stay at WHL.
I think you've already made your mind up about Paulinho, so I'm not going to enter into an argument here.
I don't think Paulinho is likely to stay, but today he was pretty good. Arguably, our best midfielder(if not best player) over the 90 mins.
+3
Brazilian Paul was ok vs Newcastle, agree with suraj. Would I prefer Dembele? 100%
30 GOALS!
+3
YES! He's at the tied for #1 with SERGIO AGUERO. Give Harry that Golden Boot!
+1
England's savior, phenomenal Harry Kane.
Vorm, Dier, Fazio, Vertonghen (c), Rose; Bentaleb, Paulinho, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane

I am happy with everything, apart from Dembele not starting AGAIN!!

Please can everyone watch Fazio and Paulinho and tell me what you think
I'm sick of Paulinho, he does like nothing.
SS, he got 2 assists. :P
I only watched the last half hour, but Paulie got Sky Sports MotM.

I will say that when DEMBELE came on we dominated the midfield...but we also switched to a 3 man, so...
+2
Fair enough, he did ok today haha
Paulinho was s**t today. Absolutely woeful. And those assists meant absolutely nothing at all, there was no skill in either. He slows down our play, always looks backwards, and is a liability.

Dembele just isn't being given the chance to prove himself. I feel really sorry for the lad.
Paddy, those assists was tongue in cheek. I thought he was good, personally. Your statement seems more to do with the fact that Dembele hasn't been playing. I think he has got more chances than Paulinho and has done ok(not great, not bad either).

I don't understand why Paulinho was played either, but he had a solid(better than most our players) game and his set-piece delivery was miles better than what I have gotten used to with Eriksen usually.
