  1. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    You proceed calling him the black Matic and then continue to describe a completely different player... If you don't think that he's a player not capable of carrying the ball then you obviously haven't watched him enough.
  2. General Transfer Talk

    Think we should go for Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer, especially if we don't manage to pinch Alexis from Arsenal and sign another RF. Best young English talent out there that can actually contribute well to the squad. Could play at RWB imo.
  3. General Transfer Talk

    Preach. Ball playing ability vastly overrated because he was dribbling past some Scottish farmers a few seasons ago. No disrespect to Scotland obviously, I'd say the same about the Dutch league.
  4. Virgil Van Dijk

    Sorry, Christensen is one of the most elegant defenders out there. Way more elegant than Van Dijk anyway. If you want a creative CB, you should be wanting Christensen over Van Dijk who is more of an athletic ball carrier.
  5. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    People watch one game and that's it? Kante and Bakayoko are much better than what they showed today. Completely forgetting his performances against top teams, including one you mentioned in PSG. The way Deschamps set up his team was bad. Not utilising the talent there well at all. You want a technically brilliant CM who can be proactive and control the midfield. Who's available? Verratti? For what, 100m? Here's your desired CM being absolutely bossed by Bakayoko several times in the same game: My overall point is, don't be so silly to judge a player off one game. The guy has potential, and has been showing it all season at Monaco, even in the CL, against the best in Europe. One average game.
  6. Alvaro Morata

    I would be ok with the transfer if he cost £25m but he's being quoted at proves double/triple that.
  7. Claudio Marchisio

    Would be sad if we went for him considering all the midfield talent out there.
  8. General Transfer Talk

    Marcos is pretty competent in almost every area of the game, proper all rounder, maybe quite weak defensively but he's improved as the season has progressed. He's better in almost every area of the game than him though. I think the only real thing Marcos has over him is his height. Emerson is having a breakout season at Roma, proper complete full back. Doesn't have a real weakness. A lot of Roma's attacks go through him on the left, but he's also quite strong defensively. If we compare him and Alonso statistically he blows him out of the water: Some maps comparing him to some PL LBs/LWB. He'd be a very smart, Azpilicueta-like signing I think. Still hasn't his prime yet either so is also going to get better. Edit: @manpe I forgot to actually add the images. Also added images of left backs with similar profiles to him.
  9. 19. Diego Costa

    Benzema might be off imo. I would take him as a Diego replacement because it would help out someone like Hazard loads.
  10. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Would be one of the best signings this summer. Could also indicate that CFC will spend big and bring in more players to up the level of the team.
  11. 28. César Azpilicueta

    I'm sure Conte works on this sort of stuff with the defenders in training all the time. Even Cahill doesn't always look too bad in tight spaces.
  12. 19. Diego Costa

    Still looks like he's off. Won't shut up about Atletico or China. He clearly doesn't mind going, I don't understand why he'd be doing interviews like these if he wasn't. Honestly, don't really care if he goes if I'm truthful. Thanks for all the goals and match winners but it doesn't seem like his heart is here and honestly, there are a lot of exciting talents that could probably fill in his presence here and perhaps even do better. I do hope we sell him for stupid money to China though. Looks like he's slowly losing his desire this season. We'll hopefully have someone leading the line next season who fills in his boots and more.

    I like his profile. Technical Brazilian LB (can also play LM) who is doing very well in a defensive Roma system. Apparently he has concentration issues though but not extreme ones. He's looked impressive each time I've caught him though. One of my mates who watches Roma regularly says he's been a top 5 LB this season in Europe.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    He's better than Alonso so yeah. Improvement.
  15. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    L'Equipe are reporting it.
