Wasn't really sure if this was more of a suggestion or rumour to be honest but someone told me tonight they had heard we are linked to Danny Welbeck.

Absolutely no idea where that has come from to be honest but thought I would share anyway.

Good player, cant see it happening in a million years.

I've altered the prefix.

It only qualifies as rumours when you can post a link other than that it's just speculation.

Smaller clubs can attract these type of players as they can pay the wages now. However they normally need to involve guaranteed first team football, which we can't offer (unless benteke leaves).

Zero chance, not going to come here to be second fiddle Benteke.

If 3-4-3 is the way we are heading I dont think playing him up top with Zaha and Benteke is crazy, I just cant see him coming here.

I get the injury worries but I'd take him on loan in a heartbeat. Perfect for the kind of inside forward role which the new formation has us playing. It may mean Andros continuing at wingback in some games but we need more options. Managed 20 games last season - well worth the risk in my opinion.

Do we never learn - he has missed as much football as Remy these last couple of years

Haha. Don't worry, it isn't up to me anyway. This one I would take a risk with though.

No chance! A fully fit Welbeck would be absolutely class but just can't see it happening.

A front 3 of Zaha, Benteke, Welbeck would be unreal!

Exactly, a fit Welbeck is a player who most of the top 6 would have.

Maybe a loan could be done for the season. Even that seems a bit unlikely though.

It will never happen especially with talk of Giroud, Perez And Sanchez leaving, that probably leaves them with ONE main striker, no chance.
But to be honest he would make an excellent signing with the system FdB has in mind, a hard working forward who chases and harasses the opposition, but also with good movement off the ball, fits de Boer ideas perfectly.
Possibly far better than Benteke does and more in keeping with what the manager wants, but no chance of any of it happening? however what if a bid of say 55m came in for CB, and DW can be bought for around 25m, interesting thought.

Agree on all points. It crossed my mind that if Chelsea or someone came in with huge cash and CB was interested then this would make real sense. Welbeck, as you say, is a perfect fit for the system if fit. But we would be brave to assume he will play 38 games. I still think we would only sell if CB makes it clear if he wants to go or the money is obscene. It would humourous if CB's purchase fee then turns out have been a snip.

Today, it's just an interesting thought. Can't believe it's going to happen.

That's why I would take a the risk despite his injuries. Highly doubt it will happen but I wouldn't hesitate if it was possible.

He wouldn't be back up to Benteke. He'd play with him.

And why do you need to use a patronising wallbash just because someone holds a different opinion to you?? Part of the problem with some BBS users these days. I think with his quality it would be worth the risk, you don't. That's fine.

What concerns me most Martin, is watching the Asia tournament and yes i realise it is very early days to form any opinions, but in that system we have deployed, Benteke looks all at sea and lost.
What makes it frustrating is, HE IS OUR ONLY TRUE GOALSCORER, and his strengths as we all know is when heading a ball goalwards, so its commonsense to realise if we are to see the best of him he needs that type of service.
If that were not to happen we have to wonder what real value would he be to FdB in his intended system, that is why i hope we have a Plan B to fall back on. A change in playing style can be put on hold or introduced gradually when we have the right personal in place, but relegation shows you no such patience.

I assume you mean they are being sacrificed to fund new players? But when any team loses the calibre of Sanchez and Giroud it will take some replacing.

Not sacrificed so much as its clearly not being a case of "we lost half a team, lets not bother replacing them at all meaning we cant sell anyone else"

Not sure he was all at sea but he wasn't involved enough. He had a very good shooting chance that he missed altogether. There was a perfect cross from Andros that he watched from the edge but assume this was because of heat etc that he didn't make the run. There is a problem that only Andros crosses the ball.

But I am not going to panic yet. FDB has to sort out the defence and inevitably the work will have been there. There were signs of the inter passing that could open up defences but just glimmers. I think CB prefers that type of play despite his towering build. I am not sure he has the movement or work rate. It's a conundrum. He can score 1 in 2 despite all of this, so.....

I said he would be great on loan, so I don't think he would cost us that much. And yes, I am certainly not in charge, and I don't know our budget or other options. That said, if we got him in I would be very happy.

Also, SP did invest in an expensive loan for Remy this time last season and tried to do a deal for a similarly injury prone Wilshire. And, no, I don't think he's a fool at all.

Also, most people on here would be happy to spend 20-30m on a defender recovering from a serious injury, because of his quality.

100,000-150,000 a week plus a 5,000,000 loan fee.Thats over 10,000,000 plus the medical bills for one year.Absolute madness:wallbash:.

So you already know what his wages are and what a loan fee would be, if it was even an option? EDIT: You give a pretty wide estimate for his wages. 100k a week would be be a lot less than 150k a week over a year's loan (more than 2.5m difference), so you don't really know what it would cost at all.

If we could afford it, I would take the risk, yes. But I don't think it will happen and my opinion wouldn't alter whether it did or not either. However, my opinion also doesn't require your condescending wallbash which can go do one.
