Bub has repeatedly stated in order for the club to bring in players in January window they must be superior than what he has at his disposal currently. That's fair. However, in that case we ought to return for Eddie Nketiah unless someone wants to make a case that Tyler Roberts is just as good?

Well that rules out obrien, swift and Diaz and all the other championship standard players the lazy journo’s are linking us with.

Would definitely go for Eddie, George, but I doubt he would be happy with a subs role once Paddy is fit, as he didn’t like the situation while on loan. I’d personally go for Noah Lang. 🧐🤔😬🤪.

Me - just because a player is playing in the Championship doesn’t mean they are ‘Championship standard’. Of the three you name, that is particularly the case with Brereton-Diaz, who has performed very well for Chile. Besides, as we all know, many of our own squad were playing in the Championship not that long ago - and there are a fair few other current quality Prem players who came from that division.

You’ll probably find that Arsenal or more specifically Arteta does not want to sell Nketieh, maybe a loan but not to buy.

I don’t think Leeds are in that business anymore with the big disappointment of not being able to buy Ben White after his loan spell.

{Ed014's Note - It’s not Arsenal or Arteta’s decision, he’s free to leave in the summer as hasn’t signed a new contract.

However a reasonable offer this month would likely see them sell as some money now is better than none in the summer if he’s adamant he won’t sign.

No to Eddie from me he struck me as not liking his time north of the smoke .

He also hasn't the attributes we desperately need, games to goals ratio , strength on ball, creativity .

Let's be honest lads, Arsenal willing to let him slide says a lot at this stage of his career . Almost ready to hit his prime.

Not being mean, but how he can say this and start Tyler is total hypocrisy.

Brighty Eddie would come for following reasons. 1. He did fairly well when he was here and is familiar with set up and way we play. 2. He'll get many opportunities. Everyone in world knows by now we get lots of injuries. 3. Realities are for a side ambitious of winning silverware large or more accurately good squad depth is required. Therefore he can either be the main man at a yoyo club or go somewhere where there's competition for places and a chance to win trophies.
This is a signing we should be making. I'm sure would cost around £14m but worth it.

03 Jan 2022 19:01:52
Cluey is correct.
OP out of touch on Eddie matter.

03 Jan 2022 19:00:10
Very true Ed, it’s not difficult to see why he does want to leave with PL games or even minutes being at zero.

Very decent player too, perhaps he’ll go abroad, a stint in the Bundesliga maybe?

{Ed014's Note - he’s played in the cups but only had 38 mins in the Prem, he sees his future elsewhere and I’m led to believe there’s interest from a few clubs here and abroad.

03 Jan 2022 19:47:06
Didn't he have a problem with Bielsa not picking him?

03 Jan 2022 20:09:56
I don’t disagree with any points you’ve made George. All I can do is speculate, same as everyone else. I’d love to have the boy onboard!

03 Jan 2022 20:28:09
Thanks Brighty. Look at Scousers striking depth. Jota Salah Mane Firmino Minamino and some bloke called Origi. Our strike department is Paddy, Joffy and Tyler. Eddie represents both an upgrade and an addition. He'd be second in pecking order which is quite high!

Will sign nobody this window mot.

04 Jan 2022 04:45:02
Mally Disagree. This window feels different. Relegation must be avoided, injuries must be adequately covered and the fans demand it. I can see us signing 3 players.

04 Jan 2022 06:52:50
Well George I hope we do but they need be quality players Mr bielsa won't sign just for sake of it.
