  1. Krzysztof Piatek

    Maybe because our top 4 fight cannot afford risks like buying massively unproven Piatek?
  2. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Ok, let's not compare Kalou or Bertrand. But what about Cahill? He too scored often 6-8 goals per season, played a lot of games and have been important for our success. Cahill too sometimes looked really good, in some setups, but regardless of that we all knew that he is not a top player, we all knew that he is only a good player. Why no one considered him top player, or one of the best central-backs in the league, like they did with Alonso? It really baffles me. Alonso is Cahill of LWB/LB.
  3. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Maybe he wanted to give it to Higuain, but his cross is just that bad that it ended up going to Kante...
  4. 7. N'Golo Kante

    THANK YOU. Whenever he is not good enough people blame Jorginho, ergo, they blame Sarri. And our coach said himself that Kante goes too much forward at times and that he doesn't like that.
  5. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Yes, well, this is another factor too, but not for interim coaches. Interim coaches are content with cash, as you mentioned. I am not even considering that manager who replaces Sarri could stay after summer... to find someone who is really worth it in this short period would be really really hard, I am not even considering it as an option.
  6. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    - with having only Marina in charge, no director of football, no Roman in England, and with transfer ban knocking at the door... I wouldn't risk another instability factor - it means this lot of players will mostly stay at the club and won't feel consequences, and it will be for third manager straight that it happens - switching to attacking football will take time, being it with Sarri or not, and attacking football is clearly what out board wants; also I am not sure are there even some available coaches who play attacking football - sacking coach like Sarri to bring someone like Conte for interim role would be huge step backwards in attempt of changing our philosophy - Sarri, with all of his faults, have beaten Liverpool and Spurs in cup, and with setup like that it could be enough to win EL where opponents are not that strong - United is too strong under Ole, getting new coach for getting top4 finish won't help us; in time new manager settles and produces something, United will be far from us - it costs money, we didn't pay what we owe to Conte yet
  7. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Well, he rarely changes introduces Emerson in the game as a sub. Against City he did that, I think that is a good sign, he obviously thought that Alonso wasn't good enough. ...But I agree, it's unacceptable. I really hope to God that Sarri can change his attitude for some things because we really can't afford to sack manager again.
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    The way Jose Mourinho put Casillas on the bench, partly out of principles to show who is the boss, I want to see Sarri putting Alonso. Same with Hart and Pep. Mourinho even benched Pogba not so long ago. And Sarri can't bench f*cking Marcos Alonso... Same goes for Willian/Pedro, of course.
  9. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I am sad when I read that someone thinks that he was the best LWB/LB in the league in season 2016/17. No, he wasn't. He just had great season, but it was more a result of great circumstances for him, not because of his qualities. Through history a lot of shitty players had great seasons. We all know Kalou and Bertrand won f*cking UCL as starters in final. Same shit here. Shallow perception of football is one of the big things that are holding us down. He needed to be replaced long time ago. Conte knew that, hence he pursued Sandro for two seasons straight.
  10. 5. Jorginho

    Exactly. I actually blame Kante to some extent. I saw many City's counters and he was nowhere to be seen. Sarri said himself - Kante needs to sit deeper when we are attacking on the left side. I have feeling in general that Kante isn't balancing his attacking and defensive duties well. But no one will criticise him, because he is Kante. He is always the best, no matter what he does.
  11. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    If we had great sporting directors, well built board and all around good politics at the club, I would be for sacking Sarri. Now, it seems that we only have Marina. Feeling is that if we sack another manager club will turn into complete mess. I would rather give Sarri the power and put trust in him. This goes way beyond one ruined season. We NEED stability!
  12. Man City 6-0 Chelsea

    I think Kovačić would have been better for game like this, where it's clear we will suffer without ball. And Emerson is always better option than Alonso. What was Sarri thinking? Azpi should rest a bit too. Give Zappacosta a chance. No untouchables.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    I think we should all report or put some negative feedback in any way to posts like that. After all - they are following the market. I'd happily unlike CFC facebook page on account of this post, maybe if they see enough of negative reactions they will stop.

  15. 5. Jorginho

    Glad to see Sarri sees Kovačić as his replacement. Mateo actually can cover all three midfielder positions of ours, and is neither great nor bad on either of them.
