  1. General Transfer Talk

    Wish we could go after Patrik Schick, his transfer to Juve didn't materialize. Do not believe the dodgy reports of him having heart problems. I think Juve negotiated very early for Schick but later changed their plans and went after Bernardeschi and Costa. Valued around 25m, i think this would be a great piece of business and even better he is left footed.
  2. Keita Balde

    What overestimation do you see from some? I don't think anyone is tipping him to be a future star or anything, most comments allude he can play at this level and could be fourth choice after Hazard, Pedro, and Willian. I think more or less that is fair, he can do a job when called upon sparingly.
  3. Arsenal 0-3 Chelsea

    Agree, although i think the white socks design from Nike will look much better in combination with the rest of the kit. But i do prefer the blue socks. The best sock design from Adidas was this;
  4. Benjamin Mendy

    Anyone seen Grimaldo extensively? i have seen him and Telles on very few occasions, but came away much more impressed with Grimaldo.
  5. 21. Nemanja Matic

    No urgency to sell Fabinho, he is on a long term contract. They can get another year out of him and still sell him for equal if not higher price next summer.
  6. Alvaro Morata

    Why does it matter who was Conte first choice? Clearly Conte rated both players wanted either player, Morata is at Chelsea and Lukaku is at United. Both have to show their worth next season. Even if Lukaku was Conte first choice, he would never admit it and signal that to his new striker. He would never publicly announce the club record transfer was not their first choice.
  7. General Transfer Talk

    At the moment he is definitely staying at Madrid, he will be Marcelo backup. And he has the versatility to play CB, which they may need with Pepe gone only left with Ramos, Varane, and Nacho at the position.
  8. Neymar

    Money has something to do with no doubt, but its not like he is going to China/Russia. PSG has equal if not better chance to win the CL than Barcelona, and rumor is they are also adding Alexis Sanchez. Outside of Madrid they have the most complete team in Europe.
  9. Kylian Mbappe

    This is the type of player we should be going after. A player who will tilt the balance of power for years to come if he decides to join one of the PL clubs. Just like Ronaldo did at United and Hazard has done at Chelsea.
  10. Serge Aurier

    Alonso situation is outside of football though, Aurier has fallen out with 2 different managers at PSG. He is very undisciplined, Conte will not work or tolerate such players.
  11. Alvaro Morata

    I do not think he is intelligent player tactically, he is very intelligent from an attacking standpoint when given complete freedom. But when given more assignments and asked to main positional sense he struggles with them.
  12. Alvaro Morata

    This is what i was talking about a few pages back. This is ridiculous, you are equating decision making on the ball with general football IQ. Based on what you wrote, than you probably think Christino Ronaldo is not a player with high football IQ. That would be stupid because, off the ball Ronaldo is the smartest player in the planet. A player can struggle with on the ball decision making, and still be a smart player in other aspects. Also a player can be a great decision maker on the ball, and lack intelligence elsewhere. For example Ozil, very intelligent on the ball but other aspects he seriously the lacks intelligence.
  13. Alvaro Morata

    She is still wrong, there is many aspects of the game. Such generalization is ridiculous. Lukaku is much more smarter player in the box and off the ball. Morata is better than him on the ball and outside of the box. Generally fans with poor understanding of the game label a player lacking football IQ/intelligence based on one or few aspects of the game. For example Angel Di maria is a great example of such misunderstanding. He is not a great decision maker in the final third, so he is often labeled a player lacking intelligence. But if you you looked very closely of his understanding from a tactical and positional sense you wouldn't think that. Also if you considered that ADM can play almost every position on the pitch and play that position really well you might think otherwise.
  14. Marco Verratti

    Sneijder was pretty close to Veratti height maybe an inch or two taller. Mourinho doesn't care about the money, its not his and he knows he will not stay long at United anyway. I don't know if Verratti to United will happen, but ultimately what i take away is Raiola is much more likely to get him away from PSG.
  15. Marco Verratti

    He signed Cesc and Ozil, Verratti is more mobile and better defensively.
