I disagree. Think it’s very shrewd business. Was the best player on the pitch when we played Brentford, and technically way better than most of our players.
Would be brilliant business. Still think he’s better than Bruno right now.
Do people give any thought as to how he fits into the current team?No way, he is top. Would be great business on a free.
What if Bruno gets injured? Or is out of form? Look at the depth the best teams have at their disposal. He would be a good signing to add competition and depth. We will be in the fa cup, europa, carabou and PL. time to stop playing the same 11 game in game out.Do people give any thought as to how he fits into the current team?
Is he going to start ahead of Bruno? Really? Alongside Bruno? Doubtful. If he's there to deputise when Bruno isn't playing, where does that leave VDB? This would be signing a player for the sake of signing a player. If ETH wants to sell VDB then it makes sense, but I'm certain that's not going to happen.
We'd definitely need frenkie, I've become a bit of a fanboy of the kid but he would be someone to build our spine around, our fulcrum, if he works out he would be here for many many years.Absolutely. But would we need Frenkie if we had Eriksen? It'd alter the dynamics of the squad to some degree
We sign young players and they get loaned outWe should stop signing ageing players with question marks over their form, fitness and suitability.
This would be a desperation signing.
Well, he'd be replaced by VDB. If VDB is not up to deputising for Bruno, we need to sell him because it's a waste of time having him if he can't even be back up for a midfield position.What if Bruno gets injured?

But the point is we'd never realistically play them together. So one of them would have to miss out. And for VDB to get a game, it would require both Bruno and Eriksen to not be in the team. It would be a complete waste of time having VDB in the squad as 3rd choice attacking midfielder when we only play 1 attacking midfielder at a time.Other than being attacking midfielders, they are not alike.
We’d finish 6th again if this was our lineup. Zero pace in attack is not going to work.It's not insane to think we'd play like this:
with VDB backing up Bruno and Eriksen, Sancho backed up by whatever young winger or Rashford that Ten Hag likes, and then buying a 9, an LCB and a RB. Can even add a new DM in there instead of Fred.
Width from the left side in the form of Shaw, Telles or a new signing, and Timber forming a back 3 a fair amount of time. De Jong controlling play from deep.
Basically, if Ten Hag sees Bruno as a winger then this deal makes sense. Otherwise no.
