  1. Stoke 0-4 Chelsea

    I'm convinced 3-5-1-1 is the better choice whenever we have Fabregas, Hazard and Morata fit and ready.
  2. Renato Sanches

    Fabregas beeing given a more integral role means we need four quality CMs, because I see him as a liability in a midfield two against top half teams and CL oposition. I think we would be alot better with 3-5-2, if Fabregas is playing. It would suprise me if Conte wants to lock himself in a 3-4-3 formation, or other variations with just two central midfielders for 60+ games. With that said I don't want to develop a player for Bayern, I want quality/experience, instead of potential to replace Matic.
  3. Grzegorz Krychowiak

    Experienced player with 45 games for Poland. Very good and fast DM when it comes to aerial, tackles, interceptions etc. Compared to Matic he does almost twice as many tackles per game, three time as many interceptions per game and three times as many headers won per game. I wonder if Conte is trying to build a wall around Fabregas in a midfield three. This guy and Kante or Bakayoko leaves Fabregas to concentrate on attacking.
  4. General Transfer Talk

    I doubt Conte would want to lock himself into a midfield two, he already tried several times last season to swtich from 3-4-3 to 3-5-2 during games. We could also try 3-4-1-2, with Hazard behind Morata and Batshuayi, but then we should have a couple of defensive midfielders like Bakayoko and Kante behind them. 3-4-2-1 is another option, still prefer some ball winning central midfielders, if we try that formation. Bakayoko has had some recent knee problems as you have mentioned, if Matic leaves we need atleast one replacement.
  5. Nemanja Matic

    I would be happy to sell for 50mil, if we could use that money to get one of: Ousama Dembele, Naby Keita, Fabinho, Nainggolan, Verratti, Isco
  6. General Transfer Talk

    I won't be relived until we manage to properly replace Costa (Belotti) and secure depth/upgrade on our wingbacks.
  7. Belotti would be a big upgrade on Costas performances after january atleast. I think we need Sandro and Danilo to really make a big step forward with our team though, they would make up for the lost creativity with Kante and Bakayoko in central midfield and add more precision and pace into our team.
  8. Andrea Belotti

    My expectations would be someone close to Costa in form, but for the entire year and not half.
  9. Andrea Belotti

    He has been very good for Italy as well, I'm confident he would be a succsess for us.
  10. Andrea Belotti

    He is a complete striker, superb poacher that scores almost the same amount with both feet and head. When you watch from 4:30 (dribbling and skills), his turn of pace and strength to launch attacks on his own like Tevez, is just what we need. He has hunger and a good kind of aggression as well, wich in my opinion makes him a safer bet then Morata etc.
  11. Romelu Lukaku

    I would be as well. Makes it alot more likely we will buy Belotti.
  12. Andrea Belotti

    Defensive Contribution: Tackles per game: Lukaku 0,2 || Costa 0,5 || Belotti 0.9 Interceptions per game: Lukaku 0,0 || Costa 0,2 || Belotti 0,3 Passing Pass succsess %: Lukaku 65,5% || Costa 75,2% || Belotti 75,1% Key Passes per game: Lukaku 1,3 || Costa 1,2 || Belotti 1,6 I have watched Belotti several times for Italy and he has been very good, his linkup play is alot better with better teammates around him. He is more then a handful for defenders, they foul him more then Hazard.
  13. Andrea Belotti

    His linkup play is better then Lukaku and Costa, he gets fouled alot more and his defensive contribution is much better.
  14. Nemanja Matic

    I would be happy to sell Matic for £40mil, if we buy Bakayoko + Ousama Dembele or Verratti. That gives us the option to switch between 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 more frequently.
  15. Nathan Aké

    Great deal for someone I doubt is in Contes plans, majority of his minutes were against Watford, after we had won the league. I prefer we concentrate on giving Christensen and Alonso enough minutes, if we are buying VVD + A.Sandro. The £20m we should spend on Conti.
