Barkley still has a lot of attributes but he's a dickhead and I don't think he'd fit into our current team. I'd rather have Doucoure as a no. 8 and Rodriguez as a no. 10 and I don't know where else Barkley would play
Stones may well be better than Holgate, Keane, Mina, and Godfrey right now, but I'm hopeful that in a couple of years Holgate and Godfrey will be forming a really strong partnership and so I don't want to reduce their chances of game time
Lukaku would score a ton of goals in this team but DCL deserves to be our main striker now. He works harder for the team and still has potential
Lookman had opportunities but clearly something wasn't right behind the scenes. I'd rather him that Bolasie but is he a better option than Gordon (if we want pace and directness) or Bernard (if we want moments of magic)
Gueye we've missed but in Allan and Doucoure we have two players that complement each other. Gueye was great but a bit of a headless chicken at times. Excellent and winning back possession but he couldn't sit deep and control tempo and he didn't offer much in possession and moving forwards. I'd rather have Allan and Doucoure than either of those with Gueye.
I think all of those players would improve our squad, no doubt. But I quite like the fact that we've moved on and have players in the team/squad now that take those roles with game time and development we should be improving.
