  1. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Alonso > Moses.
  2. Antoine Griezmann

    This guy's a walking L. Stay clear.
  3. The English Football Thread

    There are differences. The collar is much broader, and the fit is more retro-like.It's way more 'throwback' than ours. Also, the sleeves are different too.
  4. The English Football Thread

    Hate to say it, but absolutely adore Liverpool's new home kit. Proper retro.
  5. 22. Willian

    11 goals and 4 assists in all comps. Not bad. Maybe being a strong squad player is the best option for Willian.
  6. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Hopefully, we just sign a top striker next season to replace Costa. Michy is competent competition imo. Maybe add in Tammy or even Traore and the CF department is decent (e.g. Lukaku/Belotti, Batshuayi, Traore/Abraham). Overall, even though he had some blips, he's shown a fantastic attitude despite not having that much game time. If Conte started him instead of Costa from January onwards, I'm certain he would've had 20 in all comps this season. Easy.
  7. Problem changing pages

    Yep, it's a fault with the website. I'm sure @Jim will be looking into it.
  8. Alexis Sanchez

    Didn't he score twice in that game? Arsenal ask Alexis to be a creator too much when he's clearly a scorer. Imagine Pedro being asked to create as much as Alexis is here - he'd be even worse with turnovers. He wouldn't be in this situation that he's at at Arsenal all the time. He isn't that bad of a creator but in Conte's system situations like this wouldn't happen often.
  9. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Not a bad idea. Can he play in a back three though?
  10. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Massive, massive Zouma fan but he needs to go out on loan. He's completely rusted, and Antonio's system isn't helping. He needs to refine his play on the ball and sort out his positioning, and you can only do that if you play week in, week out.
  11. Problem changing pages

    Yep, @Jim take a look at this.
  12. James Rodríguez

    This is actually interesting. If we used Costa to reduce the Griezmann fee that would be a top deal. Then get in another 9 - lets say Morata or Belotti or Lukaku for example - and suddenly you have a very potent front three.
  13. 28. César Azpilicueta

    I've seen a few CFC fans suggest he shouldn't be starting. I'd rather see Christensen take up Cahill's spot, honestly. Christensen - Luiz - Azpi is a very nice back 3. Van Dijk doesn't improve on it imo. We should be looking at a top left footed CB if we wanted to improve at CB - someone like Laporte or Romagnoli would be a much better buy than Van Dijk.
  14. The English Football Thread

    Wenger has lost the plot hasn't he? "Teams shouldn't copy Chelsea's defensive style" didn't be just switch to 343 a few weeks ago? Dementia setting in anyone?

    They won't trash the Godenzonen. Ajax are my hometown team so I watch them all the time - the progress made this season has been remarkable. Totaalvoetbal is back, Bosz has done a magnificent job, and honestly, with how free scoring Ajax are, and how much United struggle against high pressing teams... Ajax have a chance. Naturally I'm backing them, but you can't ignore United's individual quality. A win for Ajax is a win for football though (gosh, never thought I'd say that given people always say it against Chelsea). Let's all be Ajacieden for a day and hope that United collapse.
