This isnt really a duplicate thread, I am wondering who you guys think we need right NOW in this transfer window who will improve us instantly

These players should not be cup-tied, so we can also use them in the CL

I think we need a RB, and either a creative midfielder or someone to replace Appiah

Bonera would be my choice for defense (is he cup tied though ??)

Yes, he played for Parma in the UEAF Cup AFAIK.


IMO, all we need is a offensive midfielder, a real playmaker, but also someone with good workarate so he can win balls and not leave our midfield unbalanced. Rosicky would be perfect, but he's cup tied AFAIK...

I don't think right-back is as high a priority as getting at least another centre-back, since Legrottaglie's leaving for sure. Even though he was never gonna be a backup CB, that leaves us with precious few options, and if Canna or Thuram are injured or suspended, we're screwed (as we saw against Parma).

Zebina isn't that bad, and I wouldn't mind playing him at RB, and even if he gets injured, we can push Thuram out onto the right and use our theoretical backup CB in the middle.

Players like Jankulovski to improve our options down the flanks and give Zambrotta more freedom are more of a luxury than a necessity. Especially considering that Cannavaro is one yellow card away from Champions League suspension, we desperately need at least one more CB. A playmaker/attacking midfielder would be great too

    Zlatan, whats the rule on that ??

    If you played in the UEFA Cup you cant play in the CL in the same season for a different team ???

    Yep, I think that's about it. It applies to most cup competitions actually (if a player plays in the CL/FA Cup for one team, he can't play in that competition in the same year, nor can he play in the UEFA Cup)

    No, once you play in one European Competition you cant play in any european competition for another club that season, doesnt matter if it's the CL or UEFA cup. However, if a player is registered for European competition but doesnt actually play, he's still available for other clubs.

    Which of those players isn't cup-tied though? I believe only Pizzaro and Meghni.

    Landon is good, and he is young (22)....although I think he is going back to Bayer Leverkusen. Also, I dont think that he would be able to fit in quickly
