    And if Laxalt gets injured or gets a better option in the summer..

    I'm sick of being ill prepared for CL Qualification.

    LB is definitely needed in Jan.

    I mean if laxalt is to be made perm/loan extended.

    Taylor as back up is perfectly fine.

    If he gets a long term injury after signing perm, then that's bad luck. But something we deal with in that hypothetical situation.
    We can't have the calibre of laxalt in every position, twice.

    We got rid of Bolingoli and Hayes and only brought in Laxalt, we are light in that position, even if we can secure Laxalt on a permanent deal in Jan its still an area we should strengthen. If we don't secure him on a perm in Jan we must get another in.

    We have quality options at RB/RWB in Frimpong, Elhamed and Forrest we need to strengthen the left, I like Taylor but he should be back up to the back up.

    How big a squad you wanting JC
    Two for each position should be enough.

    3 options mate, especially when we could be left with just Taylor come summer.

    Based on what I'd read though it didnt seem like it would be his strong point.

    I was expecting a converted winger...hes definitely not that.

    Our worst move this transfer window was not getting a buy option on him

    The rumour was they tried but Milan’s figure was too high. It makes me skeptical about the £4.5m figure mentioned this week. However if that’s true we should be all over it in January if he will sign.

    If we sign Diego permanently, then strengthening left back is in no way required. Taylor is more than adequate as back up. We do not need a third

    If we can't secure him in Laxalt in January then we need to strengthen in that window, if we do sign him then I'd still like to bring in a LW/LWB.

    And the jury is absolutely out on whether Taylor is adequate back up.

    Laxalt might not want to stay and prefer trying to get a club in Italy or the transfer fee/wages could prove to be too high a lot of variables come into play. Would be a good addition going on performances so fat

    I think we'll sign Doughty in January and either Laxalt or a first team left wing back in the summer..

    Pay the money for him, if he prefers going elsewhere then Atleast we can say we gave the offer

    I think we'll sell Ntcham in January so use whatever money we get for him to sign Laxalt on a permanent deal, guy is an amazing defender.

    Think it might be that I can vaguely remember him at the World Cup because I really like Uruguay and I can’t remember him looking like he was a liability :56:

    Only tend to pay attention to defebding when it’s outstanding or Celtic, so he didn’t stand out as a * defender haha
