  1. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Their pressing hurt us a lot. Cahill should never be playing this game. Either sub Pedro for Bakayoko or ask the team to stay low and play on the counter.
  2. Benjamin Mendy

    Nothing story, really. Monaco wanted him to stay but he's a fan of Guardiola. What he meant with that quote is that he can resist the temptation of joining Chelsea to please Monaco but not Guardiola. He's a big premier league fan as well. I actually think the quote could suggest he likes us.
  3. Spurs more attractive.....

    We never had an agreement with Swansea. Ox wanted to play as a midfielder and he rejected us knowing he wouldn't be a starter in that position here. Barkley probably felt the same, that he would only come here to be a squad player at best. If anything this is flattery. Those players think so highly of us that they swallow their pride and realize they're not good enough for us then turn to other teams (Liverpool,Tottenham). Over the years and probably for more to come, we attracted top players. Even in this window someone like Sandro was willing to come here and leave a champions league finalist. The truth is, we lost transfer targets because of our unwillingness to pay the demanded fees. We would rather negotiate and waste time until eventually another team comes and splashes the cash.
  4. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Ramos' cross was inch-perfect. You could tell he used to be a right back. Spain is so stacked man, they have talented players in every position. Oh and I'm glad Alvaro is alright. I was a bit scared after the contact with Spinazzola.
  5. Deadline Day!

    I don't care at all about Barkley but how we missed on an old player of Conte we've been trying to sign for a while now is beyond me and to Tottenham of all teams. They have Kane, Son and Janssen as strikers. We only have Morata and Michy and they still beat us to him. Janssen is currently playing vs France so I'm not sure how he would move.
  6. Deadline Day!

    Why not Ricardo Pereira? He can cover both WB positions and he's known quality especially in attack.
  7. Deadline Day!

    It needs to be said though. The inability of the club to sign second tier players is quite shocking. Failing to sign Sandro is one thing but Llorente, lol.
  8. Deadline Day!

    l'equipe reported that we made contacts for Aurier yesterday, but PSG had an agreement with Spurs not to negotiate with any other club. That's the first time I hear of something like that. Why would you refuse to negotiate with other clubs when it's still possible to get a higher fee? Only explanation I can come up with is that PSG want to get on the good side of Tottenham if they ever need to get involved in a transfer with them in the future.
  9. Deadline Day!

    Forget Mahrez. We need a fullback and a midfielder in priority. I want Llorente too if possible.
  10. Fernando Llorente

    This move is not very surprising. Conte brought him to his Juve. He also had Graziano Pelle in his Italy team and wanted him here last summer. He wants a target man, preferably one who already knows what he wants from his strikers.
  11. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Turns out his decision making is not only horrible on the pitch but also off of it..
  12. Serge Aurier

    I think the point was to upgrade the position and not to get cover, assuming Kenedy is the current cover and the club/coach feels he's decent enough to play that role. Also, buying someone else means that it is highly unlikely that the club will come for Sandro in the future. A little reminder that if he doesn't sign a new contract he will only have 1 year left in it next summer. Edit: My bad. It seems his contract still goes on until 2020, so 2 years it is.
  13. Danny Drinkwater

    Not really. Kante had a release clause. We also paid a premium to make sure no one else takes him, similar to what Liverpool have done with Naby Keita.
  14. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Milner-esque move for him if it happens. Wanted to leave City to play in a different position and have a more significant role. Ended up playing LB all season and is now warming the bench.
  15. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    The only possible positive thing about this is that if Liverpool sign him, they won't be able to sign Lemar who would be a real upgrade to their midfield. Even then, we would still need to look for a quality RB before deadline. Need to hijack the Aurier deal if there is still a chance. The other name we've been linked with is Cedric, but I doubt Southampton will sell.
