  1. Fraser refused to help Bournemouth avoid relegation. Do we really want that type of selfish person playing for us?

    • Exactly. Agree 100%

    • No & we don’t need another right winger IMO. Diangana will slot in at left. With all the talk of Eze who I’m a big fan off but he has played LW mostly like Grady & tho Grady was our for a while & played 16 less games if you take Eze’s Pens off he scored 10 assisted 8 to Grady’s 8 & 7. And he has played in the PL now of we sell Lanzini & Felipe & use Eze as AM or B2B that makes sense. Same with Benrehma huge fan but cost £25m & if get someone like him have ri sell Grady.
      FBs priority to me & I’d actually take Robin Knoche to CB & DM cover only reason didn’t stay at Wolfsburg tho fans wanted him too is bc wanted him to take huge range cut after a very good season. 28 solid defender mid cover good in air be Solis option until Baptists & Cardoso come up & £40k a month would do it

  2. Other than Mendy and Fraser hard to see how many of them would improve us.

  3. Don’t need Fraser IMO & I like Robin Koche a lot of Wolfsburg fans were usoet to lose. They wanted him to take half a pay cur tho he had been crucial to them last season & been there his whole career I think. At 28 still good 3+ years left wages probably £30-40k & is solid defender physica, good in air, good character & cover at DM too. Tho I’dgive Balbuena a year extenson he was hood when Moyes played him once & he don’t get has many games has Diop who also struggled a lot. Balbuena is a fighter & for 4th choice CB only on £30k not ba option just needs to get use to not playing high line again & seems he did after Rice was moved back to mid. Keep him on another year well Baptiste who is abuge talent is still developing & give Cardoso some chances.

  4. I heard Fraser didn’t want to play for his team in a relegation battle? Is that correct? If it is then it’s a no from me.
    Don’t think we need to sign any of these. We’re a different team since we signed Souchek and Bowen Anyway. Post lockdown results showed that had we played like that all season we would have finished top ten.
    So if we’re going to add any players then they need to be team players like those two.
