    Let's get Jarrod bowen

    When we go down we should do all we can to hold onto Pukki. He's more important to the team than the younger players who'll command higher transfer fees - and in a more-expensive position to replace. He's on a long-enough contract so I don't see why we'd have to accept a few million £ for him - unless he turns stroppy, which I can't see him doing. Keep him and build the team around him once more and we have a chance of coming straight back up. Without him (and without spending proper money on his replacement) I'd be much more wary of our chances.

    Lukas Rupp

    I reckon Rupp’s been signed as Duda’s replacement...

    Duda signed

    I suppose if the management are resigned to relegation (which although likely is a poor attitude to take) they might conclude that it's prudent not to sign anyone now in a transfer window where prices tend to be inflated. And when we don't yet know what gaps - due to our better departing players - will need to be somehow plugged. Though they may just never want to spend a sizeable transfer fee on someone worth buying, regardless of the situation...

    Duda signed

    Before we get too excited we must remember that Farke usually waits at least a month before playing a new signing as he deems then not up to speed. I feel he may need to expedite Duda’s progress given where we are...

    Paradox in defence

    I think we should give this Paradox lad a run out in defence as the thread title suggests. He can't do any worse.

    Ground v Player Sacrifice

    I know things are looking bleak in the league at the moment. But I really don't think we're quite at the player sacrifice stage yet are we? A loss to Bournemouth, however, and we may just have to start erecting a wicker man in the car park...

    Stewart Webber in Gunn club

    Particularly this. This is where Farke lost it. Was crying out for fresh legs before they equalised - and indeed when they did. 3 panic subs on with 4 minutes to go was pathetic.

    Ref for Sunday

    Good ole Super Dooper Hooper. I dread to think what a combination of him, VAR and Chris Wilder can cook up together to p&ss me off...
  9. Vrancic needs to be in the side. For Trybull.

    FA Cup Draw.

    Seeing this draw I get the sense that the old “we’re going to concentrate on the league” expression is shortly going to be getting out of its annual early January box.

    Will Emery last for Sunday?

    As it's just Ljunberg as caretaker hopefully that won't be quite as motivating as a new flagship appointment. It's still not great, but perhaps in some weird way it takes the pressure off us, as some people were starting to think that they'd roll over while we hammered in the final nail of Emery's reign. We should at least now know that we've got to be at our best.

    A club without ambition

    I never said we weren't even trying. I said we didn't sign them. Trying but failing to sign good players has been a bit of a feature of our recent escapades in the Premiership... But I get that it's hard to find the right targets and persuade them to come, so I'm going to shut up about it now, because we are where we are. I just hope we do as Weber suggested and sign a player (or two) in the mould he describes as soon as possible in January, if we're to have even a fighting chance of staying up. Because Farke and the squad need all the assistance they can get in this highly sloping playing field.

    A club without ambition

    Sadly, coming close butters no parsnips... (I guess you're referring to the French winger/striker.)

    A club without ambition

    Yes they are. But were we even looking seriously at players who would have fulfilled this criteria (as much as you can ever predict) in the £5 to £15m bracket?

    Sellable Assets

    I remember the heady days of the summer when people were talking about Buendia being our first £50m player. And to be fair, maybe I dared to believed it too... What a time to be alive that was! (And, football being a funny old game, let’s not entirely write the possibility off yet, even if it does seem like a distant dream.)
