Douglas Luiz

Recommended Posts

Never seen him play, but my god I really want this to happen, haven't been this excited about a player since Milner signed.

excellent point i thought!

I had responded excitedly to the post before mine about "Luiz done deal"............then i realised it was a repost from 2 weeks ago when it was supposedly a "done deal" :(

They said it was done 12 days ago.

 

I think the deal with City is actually complete. It's  getting the WP which is the stickler.

Nothing wrong with being excited, it’s the premature bit that’s a problem

any news on this?

Whether its Douglas or someone else, we need to get a DM in badly, really seriously badly.

I would say this position is one of our most important purchases, a little concerned we are so far in to the window and nothing is confirmed for the DM position yet.

Hopefully this will be sorted soon? (or another DM sorted soon).

2 friendly games to go......could do with a new DM playing in 1 at least, preferably both of those friendlies.....

Must be pretty close by now I'd have thought.

We're not going to sign him without knowing the outcome of  the work permit.  We do these things correctly now, it seems.

With nakamba bought in surely this is dead  

I can't see it. Even after Luiz joins we needed another DMC/CM for cover. While Luiz, Grealish and McGinn looks very good, there's **** all depth behind that. Hourihane, Lansbury, Doyle-Hayes, Tshibola simply aren't very good options. The former two might do in a pinch, but both are more suited to an attacking role than defensive duties.

We need competition at DM. Bjarnason is rubbish and Hourihane isn't much better either, getting both Douglas and Nakamba is smart.

I wasn't expecting 2 DM signings, but why not both? We all know Hourihane can play the DM role, but he is better higher up the pitch. 

Have Nakamba/Luiz battling for the DM position, allowing Grealish/McGinn/Hourihane/Lansbury/O'Hare/Bjarnason to challenge the 2 CM spots. 

That would be very healthy competition.

I doubt it.
I feel we will know if this deal is dead or not on Monday, as that's what Douglas's trainer has said.

That's what I was thinking, but I hope it's not the case.

We need two DMs. Bjarnason should be nowhere near the team and Hourihane isn't good enough to fill in there at PL level.

But the Douglas Luiz deal is supposedly all done....aren't we just awaiting confirmation for his Work Permit?

Think we need both he and Nakamba to be fair?!
