Maybe. Or we're just making room for a newcomer. 

Have to trust that the management have a plan and know what they are doing I suppose!

I'll tell you what, I won't look forward to facing him with his scything tackles. Season-ending injury to Cairney on the cards.

I don’t think he is to replace Mitro, he’s coming (if it happens) to add more speed and alternatives to the attack. We need to score more goals, that’s pretty obvious.
I am starting to dream of two strikers up front in an attacking 4-4-2 formation, one with real pace the other good in the air all resulting in a regular 2/3 goals per game at the Cottage.

Watching Muniz clips he scored the majority of his goals with his head!
Right then, we just need the wide men who can deliver good crosses, can't remember the last time we saw one of them in action at the Cottage.

This would be a weird one, Grimes is 26 and won't get a whole lot better,  he's certainly not ever going to be prem standard si what would be the point? Our transfers team are so so bad, no long term vision at all.

Defensive midfielders peak around about 30 and some even later so he's nowhere near his best yet, and he's definitely got the ability to play in the Premier League

I’m a bit confused. Surely Reed is our starting defensive mid? If we are replacing Stef Jo don’t we need more of a box to box or attacking type?   I don’t know Grimes well enough; if he’s the former he may well improve but do we need him, if he’s the latter then he is unlikely to continue improving as the athletic demands tend to take their toll earlier. Perhaps I haven’t understood the rumoured Grimes transfer properly though?

He's a deep lying midfielder - Reed is more box to box. He sits deep and pulls the strings as he's got good passing range so should hopefully add some more creativity to our midfield. Silva plays 4-3-3 so you'd most likely have Grimes and Reed in a 2 man pivot behind TC

I would expect Harry Wilson to join us now, we have agreed a deal with Liverpool and he has been left out of the Liverpool squad for a friendly today. Matt Grimes has an offer from us and Bournemouth. We are his preferred destination, but should be more on that on the next 48 hours.

My thoughts exactly - if all of Anguissa, Seri and Stef Jo are off, Trybull rumour makes sense as well.midfield of Reed, Trybull, Grimes, Onomah, Cairney, ??

Surely we won't let StefJo leave until Grimes is confirmed.

Stefjo is a nice squad player, but not the be all, end all saviour they are making him to be. Perhaps shows even though we've just been relegated the gulf in class between our two squads.

Bit expensive for me, but whatever. Hope he goes on to live up to the price tag.

Les Barrett.
Les was such a great player.

I would suggest that Damian Duff was a pretty good crosser of the ball more recently.

If so, yes. It can't be said that Silva allowed it all to be left to the last minute. He could hardly have made his input much sooner.

Well Harry Wilson and from the same (Instagram) source, Rodrigo Muniz will join. Let’s see if this account is something to follow in the future.

Up the Fulham!

Stef Jo won’t be a loss if he goes, which looks likely, but Anguissa will. The club should be doing everything within their power to retain him.
