Sahko is back (and played prev friendly). Don't know why he doesn't make the squad today.

Gibson plays for Burnley today, rumours of Tarks to Leicester giving us a late 4.0 shot?

Lundstram and Kelly both starting too. That's 5 potential 4mn starters. Surely one of them got to nail a place...

Hanley likely won't play long term, not with Klose and Zimmermann to come in.

Lundstram starting again though, if the window closes and they don't sign a midfielder, he's got to be the one. They were the tightest of the 3 promoted teams and he's OOP.

But is he a better bet than Rico though? Rico has a superior attacking potential and I suppose we expect Bournemouth to be tighter than Sheffield United, no? I would pick Lundstram instead of Rico only if I was super confident he is nailed. But I'm not, based on for example this post:

Have to say, the Sheff united forums seem fairly unanimous that Lundstram won't start when push comes to shove.

Is anybody thinking about Montoya at Brighton (4.5), given that they have been playing a 343, he's maybe the most likely to do a "Doherty". He doesn't have much if any attacking pedigree, but from what I can tell he's never been played at RM before and did have a 1 in 10 record for assists (from RB) in La Liga.

Yes, had mentioned the BHA fullbacks some time ago. Potter seems to like his backs attacking.

Webster joining Duffy and Dunk in a three man central defence should hopefully bolster their defence and might also make Ryan and Button good goalkeeper pairing. I'm tempted by one of Trossard/Pröpper/Locadia and Montoya (Bernardo might have competition from March in the LWB spot) myself, having Button already.

Neither guaranteed to start. Looks like Kelly could be the only one in with a chance.

Diop for me

Rico Lunstrum and Kelly look the only likely 4mills

I like Diop but West Ham less so. That said, they should be tighter than Norwich, from who I like Aarons at this price.

Montoya at BHA is also sticking out to me, as looks like he could fit into an attacking approach, but it’s a gamble with such a changed Brighton side (which could be changed further with a good signing in Maupay) and a new manager.

Finally, will someone please talk me out of looking at Chambers at ARS? Holding doesn’t seem close to a return for the first few GWs, a lot of mins pre-season, can play RB as well whilst Bellerin is out if Maitland-Niles proves lightweight.

I need some sanity at this price point too!

I'm on Diop at the moment too. Kiko Femenio and Dunk are solid options too. I have considered Taylor as well.

Calum Chambers has played the most pre-season minutes of any Arsenal player.

I know it's Arsenal, but they start their season away at Newcastle before a home game against Burnley.

I am tempted...

Palace have signed Cahill. Even at his age, I’d think that is the end of Kelly (and another 4m, unless Cahill comes in at the same)?

Cahill trained at all? Probably worth keeping Kelly until Tomkins and Sakho are back.

Apparently Cahill is on £75k per week, not bad for an old man who may not be match fit ......

Wow, must admit that ownership level had passed me by. And good points regarding Gaz’s sharpness. All of that has given me the last push I needed not to join the quarter of players and steer clear of Palace altogether!
