Collins would be a good signing for the future. I just really hope we sign a player for the now. Still think Right Mid or a more creative CM is critical this window
Should have signed Dawson last window and someone like Collins now. Would have ready for when Tarky had to go.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - Phil Jones would be a great fit for us. I hope it happens in this transfer window.

Craig Dawson has also looked quality at West Ham so it’s no surprise we chased him for so long.
Dawson was a no brainer last window.
