  1. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Injured yet again. Don’t know why we forced signing an injured CM when we already had one of the books. Drinkwater should’ve contributed far more than what he’s done so far.
  2. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    I would say: new league, no preseason and some new injury niggles, plus no rest at all for weeks because there were no other CMs (even though he just came back from a long term injury) could explain some of his problems at the moment. I think his main problem is the pace of the league. He seems to need like half a second or so longer to make decisions. Bernardo Silva at City is having the same problem - but Pep is integrating him into his side slowly because he has a fantastic squad at City. Something we couldn’t have done here whatsoever. The incompetence at this club is mind blowing sometimes. We signed an injured midfielder in Bakayoko - what do we decide to do again for his competition/cover? We sign an injured Drinkwater.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard finished 8th in 2015 mate. Drop the stupid agenda.
  4. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Hazard isn’t in the 2nd gif. The one that Hazard was in is the one I said was bad. His finishing is something he needs to work on. I’ve said this before. Including his balance/athleticism. I’ve said before if he works on these two things, and masters them, he’d be an elite striker. I also said that I won’t be judging/concluding my thoughts on him this season because I knew it’d take him awhile to understand and adapt to the game in England. He’s done better than I expected overall so far.
  5. 9. Álvaro Morata

    The only bad one is the last gif. First one you had to go to his Juventus days to bring up (lol), 2nd gif is great goalkeeping. I agree that Alvaro has finishing problems (just look through this thread) but those are poor examples.
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    I agree he had a bad game but he has bad games so rarely it’s ok to look past this performance. Like there are no alarm bells.
  7. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Morata literally scored the win— nvm.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    People are actually blaming Eden even though we have so many other real problems in the team... wow.
  9. 9. Álvaro Morata

    My biggest worry with Morata is his lack of fight. It keeps rearing it’s head even though he has shown glimpses of fight. Thoroughly bullied by old school English defending. And his finishing? Well...

    @Jason in fact, this is what my football community’s account tweeted just a few hours ago.
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    I’m not necessarily agreeing with the rankings. My point is in any rankings Mbappé should be rated as having a better year than Eden.
  12. Arthur Melo

    Caught him in the Copa Libertadores. We won’t sign him because we don’t sign the best talents from Brazil...
  13. 10. Eden Hazard

    In those 5 months Mbappé massively helped his team beat PSG to the title and also stepped it up with big performances in the CL against top teams like Madrid up until Monaco got eliminated in the semis. The fact he was doing this at 17/18 is the most impressive bit. Mbappé should be higher because of his European exploits, which Eden didn’t participate in last season, hence why I believe he was ranked so low. Mbappé was probably a top 5 player during his big run of form last season. He’s also not doing too badly at PSG.
