    Allison is incredible.
    So that position, unlike last year and hopefully for the next 5-7 years, is taken care of.

    However ... back up goalkeeper.

    Do we sell Ming for 10-15 and promote one of the kids?
    do we bring back Karius?
    Do we sign Etheridge for a few million?

    McCarthy is home grown so allows a squad spot. Makes sense

    McCarthy is contracted to 2022 though. Might cost quite a bit for a back up.

    If Ming is happy then i say keep him as back up and pseudo GK coach. The squad loves him.

    He's pseudo GK. I'm not sure he should coach anybody.

    What's wrong with one of the highly rated keepers we have got? Why put another obstacle in their way?

    Buffon seems like a no brainer - available on a free.

    He had the right to execute an extension & big pay rise in his contract at PSG - and declined.

    Media saying he declined it as he wouldn't be no.1 choice, not true - a player of his stature, calibre and professionalism could not handle being around that circus of egos.

    Free transfer, money not a concern for him, will be happy to be a backup & is still a very reliable keeper.

    He's not going to tarnish his rep with the juve ultras by joining us. Not going to happen. And We didnt sell Can he fucked off to them on expiry of his contract

    "sold" is a bit of a stretch
