  1. Surely not? No side in the PL has a defence so weak that CC could score against them……er?? Tell me it can’t happen…There are some scary stats doing the rounds about our brilliantly organised defence- we come out ‘well’ on games with the most goals scored, defeats by 3 or more goals etc.

    • They were also linked w Lambart.
      You look at free agents and there is one obvious choice Rossi would be good but always Injured.
      Then u have Chiek Diabate 29yo youngest of the lot scored 8 in 14 apps for METZ FC on loan from Omnispar and is Benteke’s height so could actually get someone who could be more than a stop gap or badi. Mail Intl actually has good record.
      Who knows they are wishing they paid agent fee for Niasse who was ousted by Koeman and now looks there best striker w 3 in under 60m… Goes to show u never now when someone can CE good tho he kept his head down and worked which Sahko is doing now so wish we would use him too honestly not his biggest fan but he wants to play and has pace and can score. I woidl like to see that relationship related and used I think him and Chica would be good partners up front
