I'd be interested to see the reception that Gana and Barkley would get back with us to be honest. Barkley was a snake who cost us at least £20m and is on such a fall from grace at the minute and Gana has had his controversy with his backwards views, despite being a loved player for us previously. I wouldn't be happy with either coming back in terms of their off the pitch actions but look I guess when we're in such a state they do improve the squad currently. Add on to that Vinagre, as well as probably McNeil, I'd hope we'd have something left to go back in for Cornet maybe or another forward or else a proper starting midfielder.
If we went into the season with Tarkowski, Vinagre, McNeil, Gana, Barkley and Cornet for example we've definitely improved the side as it couldn't get much worse but there'd still be pretty clear deficiencies. Think adding Gilmour or Broja on loan will be a last few weeks of the window thing, and I think we'd probably dip in again for more depth on loan.
Wouldn't be a glamorous window but in realistic terms it would probably improve us enough to stay clear of fighting for relegation but probably be no higher than 10th or 11th.
I don't agree with his views but that's his religion so harsh to judge him on that.
I'd welcome Gana back. Cheap option that knows the league. Still allows us to bring another player in with Rodriguez being linked.
hopefully the Terrier links are true too.
Tark, Vinagre, Gana, Rodriguez and Terrier would be a very good and sensible window tbh. Possibly still a little light in some areas though.
