  1. Kalidou Koulibaly

    For the money Laurentiis want for him, i will want someone more well-rounded, like Van Dijk. Koulibaly is average in aerial duel when i watched him up against Real Madrid 3 seasons ago. Further stats to back up my claim : Here when compare to Cahill. who almost always managed over 3 aerial per game, Koulibaly aerial duel certainly a big weakness in his games. Serie A players can be overrated as well, you can look at Rugani for reference - this guy could have cost us 45m or more thanks to Sarri obsession with signing players used to work with him And if you compare him to Van Dijk, Koulibaly look pathetically average for his 120m price tag, so no Out of all those target you suggest, why dont include Niklas Sule as well, perhap if Bayern still want CHO badly enough, we can try a CHO + money deal. Conte wanted him 2 years ago and we already willing to paid more than what Bayern offered for him. That guy is build like a tank, tall, strong and still quite fast, already experienced at the highest level. I would say if we break the bank for a defender then i would pick him over these 5 you mentioned above
  2. 15. Kurt Zouma

    He'll be 25 by October. He's no long viable for "Prospect" status anymore. If he's not good enough right now, he'll never be. Sell him in the next summer is our best option You can look at Phil Troll at Manure for reference. He's almost 3 years older than Zouma and has played in the PL for nearly a decade but still making rookie errors here and there. And i'll consider Jones to be better than Zouma in technical ability. Zouma still pretty much the same player under Mourinho 4,5 years ago. Time to milk as much money from Everton as possible for him. Say if we can get 40 -45m for him, i can suggest some replacement like Mathias Ginter/Jonathan Tah/ Nikola Milenkovic/Kristoffer Ajer which available for around 35-45 m.

    Overall good draw. Ajax still a solid team despite losing de ligt and de jong. Valencia and Lille could also be a challenge. Much better draw than 2017 with Roma and Atletico although Conte did good enough to get pass the group stage despite terrible transfer window

    Seem celtic is bad with their transfer as well. Ajer played at RB while they struggle to replace Lustig
  5. Joao Felix

    the 120m atletico paid for him will look like a bargain in a few years. Already a very good player and will continue to improve. Might be the key for Atletico to really become a dominant force in Spain and Europe Atletico bought some duds recently as well (Costa come to mind) but Joao Felix surely a real deal. Shame our board didnt try to get him before the ban. He's probably the most promising player since Cristiano Ronaldo.
  6. The English Football Thread

    De Gea is massively overrated. Not good for ball playing, cant command his area like Cech or Courtois. Only good thing about him is his shot stopping ability, which is more of a liability nowaday. And some United fans tried to convince me he's better than Neuer ffs

    Now multiple injuries and red cards for lolerpool and arseanal to make my day complete

    Tbf, in Chelsea first stint, He shipped out 1,91m tall Roberth Huth in favor of Carvalho/terry or Gallas . At Inter, his main cbs are walter samuel and lucio, both are 1,80 and 1,88m, not very tall for cbs nowaday when he has 1,93m Materazzi at his disposal. Granted, all these 4 guys above are world class though. Next summer, i dont think there 're many realistic choice to upgrade at the cb position. Varane is way overpriced and i dont think he's the type of commanding cb. Some good choices like Niklas Sule from Bayern (He rejected Conte back when we offered Hoffenheim more money compare to Bayern) or Mathias Ginter. I think Kristoffer Ajer could be a hidden gem though. Celtic probably ask for 30-40m, not very much nowaday
  9. 15. Kurt Zouma

    I mean 33 years old Cahill. Prime Cahill is twice the player Zouma could be. Zouma pretty much the same player 3, 4 years ago. Still very awkward on the ball, poor positioning. And he seemingly incapable of timing the jump, which led him to jump very high to compensate for it, that's the reason lead to his injury. Cahill right now might lost the pace but at least he would rather back down instead of giving away such a cheap penalty like yesterday. Even his ball playing is not as bad as Zouma, although its still average
  10. 15. Kurt Zouma

    Crap player . So damn clumsy that i'll even take Cahill instead of him
  11. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    For the CB : Varane is way too expensive and he doesnt seem the type of CB that can lead a defense for me. Many guys here love to shit on Ramos, the guy might be a red card magnet in La Liga. but for me in Real CL hat trick, he's the guy that always step up when its matter. I dont think its a coincidence that Real conceded three goal against Juventus with him suspended (The match with Buffon get a controversial red card) and only a last minute penalty save them from going into extra time. Last season same story, With Ramos in the first leg, Real beat Ajax 2-1 comfortably. Second leg without him ? Real conceded 4 and out of the CL. He's good in the air, and pretty fast, but his reading of the game doesnt impress me that much. And add to that Real likely to ask for 100m+. We still need a good striker, in case our 3 current strikers doesnt cut it for the job. Even the LB might be a priority but Leicester might ask for lot of money for Chilwell. I think alternative option for LB could be Ludwig Augustinsson from Bremen. Timo Werner from the last WC doesnt seem very impressive when facing defensive team (Both Korea and Sweden) . Granted entire German national team last year underperformed, but i still highly skeptical about him since most PL teams wont give him much space to operate freely

    Pretty good technical ability for a defender, i think he used to play attacking midfielder. Wouldnt mind him here if Everton put in a good offer for Zouma. Zouma ball playing is quite below average and his defending from what i saw in the pre season look dodgy as hell
  13. Non-Chelsea Transfer Pub

    You watched Celtic games ? How about Kristoffer Ajer ? Is he any good ? Saw some rumours that Roger consider him to be Maguire replacement but Celtic likely asked for 30m+
