  1. 19. Diego Costa

    Costa loan for China then being sold to Atletico in January is probably the best we can hope for now.
  2. 6. Nathan Aké

    Makes sense as Emenalo essentially heads up the loan department with Eddie Newton... Ake's looking for minutes Of course he has a say - he's the technical director. What people are trying to say is that he doesn't make the final decision. How's that hard to grasp? Also, here's the whole quote: "I just need to see what is going to happen with Michael [Emenalo, the technical director] or the manager. We have to talk and see what is best." Not surprised that "or the manager" was omitted tbh.
  3. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Guy hasn't been this player for years now.
  4. 21. Nemanja Matic

    40m plus no Fabinho to Utd? Sign me up.
  5. Virgil Van Dijk

    How is he better than all of those? He's severely overrated in my opinion. You pay that sort of money for the best of the best, like what we're doing with Sandro. You can't say he's better than CBs who have consistently played in Europe and have started for their NT for years. VVD isn't on their level just yet, he's only really had one really good half of a season in a pretty defensive Southampton system where any good defender would do well. What is he better at than Koscielny, Luiz and Bailly? I've watched this guy since he was playing in Holland (I'm Dutch) and Scotland, I've probably seen him more times than you. I'm not saying he's a bad defender, he's a good defender, but he isn't this top 3 defender you guys make him out to be. He hasn't proven any of that over his career so far.
  6. Virgil Van Dijk

    Nah. Luiz, Azpi, Alderweireld, Koscielny, Bailly are all better. You could also say he isn't even better than guys like Vertonghen, Mustafi, Maria and Kompany he isn't necessarily better than. Half a season of good performances doesn't automatically make you a top 3 defender.
  7. General Transfer Talk

    They've already got replacements for everyone bar Silva so far.
  8. Virgil Van Dijk

    Should stay away far for that price. Not worth it. He isn't even a bonafide WC defender. Not even top 10. Not even top 5 in the PL imo.
  9. Alex Sandro

    Absolute tears bro. Dream signing.
  10. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Going to be a star for us I feel. Many forget he's only 22.
  11. General Transfer Talk

    I would never have Laca as the main number 9 at an elite club. He'd be superb in a two man strike force though.
  12. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    I've seen some weird stuff from people.
  13. Romelu Lukaku

    Not bad. That's around £150k which is solid for your number 1 striker. Consider Utd pay the like so of Ibra and Rooney 300k.
  14. Robert Lewandowski

    Probably just a rumour to pressure Everton in lowering the price?
  15. Alex Sandro

    Dortmund's Raphael Guerreiro would be an excellent replacement for Juve. If we can't get Sandro I hope the club goes after him.
