  1. The English Football Thread

    I'm pretty sure I remember Pochettino saying he would never coach Barcelona because of his ties with Espanyol. Now wether or not he sticks to his word is another thing, he certainly wouldn't be the first one not to. As for the favorite to land him, it has to be United. They've wanted him for a long time and Ole will certainly not last past this season. Bayern could've been an option but he doesn't speak german.
  2. Kevin de Bruyne

    Deeper block is the exact situation where Hazard edges it. KDB with no space will find it difficult to play his game, whereas Hazard's dribbling ability will open teams up. When France sat deep vs Belgium at the WC, which of the 2 was the most dangerous player? Passes are nice but the best thing against these teams parking the bus are dribblers. Even Pep with his fancy system needs dribblers (see Sterling, Sane, Bernardo, Mahrez).
  3. Kevin de Bruyne

    Maybe Hazard is easier to contain because teams put more players on him? I don't think any coach in their right mind would prioritize isolating KDB before Hazard. Eden is deadly on 1vs1, that makes him by default the more dangerous player.
  4. Next Manager?

    He will be in no hurry to extend his contract especially if we made contact with him.
  5. Eden Hazard

    I just hope his replacement isn't Coutinho. Nicolas Pepe or Leroy Sane if he is available would be nice.
  6. The English Football Thread

    He missed Huddersfield, Southampton and Wolves. He will be playing tomorrow and no doubt scoring.
  7. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Are there any reasons we should stick with Sarri any longer than this? We've been awful for months now, showing no signs of improvement and we can still save our season if we win the Europa League.
  8. Everton 2-0 Chelsea

    It's not a Chelsea game this season if the score isn't 0-0 at half time. Now hoping Everton makes more mistakes and Hazard works his magic to somehow open the score.
  9. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    It's a shame Monaco appointed Jardim back, he would have been perfect for the job.
  10. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Personally, I hope we won't buy him. talented but he doesn't offer much threat going forward and his defensive game is perhaps on par with Barkley which doesn't say much. Not to mention he's highly rated and would cost much more money than he's really worth. Keep the money and try buying either of Ndombele or Aouar IMO.
  11. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Hopefully the club learns something from this. Best youth product we've produced in ages at the best time possible and we still managed to screw this up. I'm afraid this is no Kakuta or Musonda situation, this kid is the real deal. At least when City lost Sancho they had a shitload of talent available blocking him. Club has no excuse and neither does the manager.
  12. Leandro Paredes

    Almost 50M for a backup player would have been too much. If the stories about Barella unwilling to come in january are true, I think that means Ampadu will be playing more from now until the end of the season.
  13. Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea

    Someone needs to beat United and break their momentum. Confidence and the feeling of freedom post-mourinho is making them a real threat to our top 4 chances.
  14. Gonzalo Higuain

    I don't know if this has been posted here or not. https://www.marca.com/en/football/international-football/2019/01/18/5c41c38ce2704ed4668b45cc.html It gives more insight about the loan conditions. This is Marca so they might not be too reliable but it makes more sense considering Juventus wants to offload the player.

    It's the DailyMail quoting The Sun, in other words fake news.
