Sarkic signed up to 2025 and confirmed (well, at least they say so) as not heading out on loan this season.

He was too good to just sit on the bench a couple of months ago

To be honest he's too old now to be going out on loan "learning". Done all that now so we've done what we should have done with Giles and Sanderson, either use him in our own squad or sell him.

I don't mind him staying and presume the contract will play him Championship money to sit on a PL bench

I think Sa's stats were better than performances, which isn't meant as a criticism, just that he wasn't as good as he was made out - good rather than POTS good. Sarkic would be too much of a risk without a stupid bid though

Yeah, if someone got blinded by the xG data or whatever and bid £30m (which he isn't worth) then you could see them going for it. Otherwise not really.

He had a very good season - definitely wasn't POTS, but we next to never get that right - but equally was at individual fault for a lot of goals, quite strange.

Website says he'll be part of Lage's first team squad. So Ruddy's replacement essentially

-------------------------------------------Sa----------------------------------------------------

Jonny/Semedo---------------Collins--------------Kilman--------------Ait-Nouri/Jonny

--------------------New CM---------------Moutinho----------Neves--------------------------

-------------------Guedes----------------Jimenez------------Neto----------------------------

Are we happy with that as a first choice XI when everyone's fit? Depends who "new CM" is of course.

Think it depends if CM has any chance of scoring a goal here and there. If not add Pod back in and take out CM/Moutinho

----Sa-----

Jonny----Collins--------Kilman-------Ait-Nour

---------Moutinho----------Neves-------------------

------Guedes----------Podence--------Neto-----

Are we assuming Morgan is a goner then? Or have I missed summat?
He wouldn't get in that team, would he.

Not really a CM. We aren't going to spend ~£30m on Guedes and not play him, and he's not even in the same stratosphere as Neto.

Yeah I've just read the precis of Guedes, I'd been assuming he was shite as some had said on here....as you say were not spending 27m and not playing him.

He might well be shite, he was shite in every game I saw him play for Portugal and if you were handing me £27m to spend on a forward, he wouldn't be in the top 50 players I'd look at. But he's coming and he'll obviously play.

If MGW stays he'll get plenty of gametime. Just not a nailed on starter.

He probably does get in the team because there's no way all of Guedes, Podence, Neto and Raul are injury free at any one time. Which is probably the way it should be, 5 into 4 throughout a year - with Hwang to occasionally cover again as a regular sub. I was surprised on Saturday, it was one of his better performances.

Mine was assuming MGW goes. If he stays and we sign a good CM/Guedes then probably:

Raul
Neto/MGW/Guedes
Neves CM
RAN Kilman Collins Jonny
Sa

Hwang
Pod
Traore
Moutinho
Dendoncker
Bueno
Boly
Toti
Sarkic
Kids if any room

Semedo and Chiquinho out for a while right? Semedo interchangable with Jonny when back and the other on bench. Chiquinho on bench when back

Swap MGW for Moutinho if we play 433 and/or are getting smashed in the middle

Suppose it depends if and who we sign as CM but I like the idea of 3 attackers behind Raul more than 3 midfielders who don't have much goal threat

If Guedes plays centrally and/or MGW goes then probably Pod on the right. Kinda wanna see how MGW does behind the striker rather than wide

Typed all that and don't see us signing a CM so Moutinho back in haha
