  1. Norwich - Chelsea

    While i agree that's probably the best way to use both that will also lead to more problem's defensively. I feel we will need better individual defenders before we can get away with doing that.
  2. Norwich - Chelsea

    Maybe but they as it stands are competiting for 1 position. Moving Kante to sitting DM just to have both on at the same time just won't work.
  3. 8. Ross Barkley

    If he's happy to stick around as a squad player I'd keep him. It's easy to say cash in but there's not many even good squad player's available in the £30-40m range these days as we found out in summer 2017 and while Ross isn't good enough to be a regular starter he's certainly good enough for the B team (we will need a competitive back up lineup if we're to compete with Pep's City).
  4. Norwich - Chelsea

    That just screams of trying to shoehorn Mount and RLC in like Sven did Lampard and Gerrard. If the system only allows one then we have to pick or rotate it's a simple as that. Furthermore the average age of the attacking 5 is just too young, we need some experience to balance that out, especially in times of adversity.
  5. 19. Mason Mount

    Personally i think 19 suits him. Unless he specifically requests 8 if/when Ross goes i would keep his number as it is.

    The fact a lot of people had Spurs as dead cert for 3rd and even in some cases challenging the top two just goes to show how lazy the average fan and pundit is in predicting things. Any proper research and knowledge of Spurs's situation and you would know they are in a lot of shit, they started last season well results wise but performances declined then the results caught up with them, a riddled by luck run to the CL final has masked over what has been a spectacular collapse. I wouldn't be remotely surprised if they're the ones who end up 6th.
  7. The English Football Thread

    Tbh I would say is winning the CL when we did is one of the biggest miracles in sport, truly written. There's no logical way it can explained, even with Leicester you can point to Kante, Mahrez and Vardy in the form of their lives and just broken to world class level (Kante) or borderline (the latter two). With us we didn't have a single world class player. The old guard were long past their best , Luiz, Danny and Mata were good but flawed, the rest of the squad was awful, Di Matteo was in charge (I love him but he's not a great manager), absolute madness!
  8. 9. Tammy Abraham

    I stand by what I said re Loftus back then, he just wasn't impacting games atall. He would make one darting run or near turn every half hour ish which fooled people into thinking he's doing more than he actually was. That's why I kept emphasizing my delight at his progress from November onwards because I really thought it would never come, credit has to go to Sarri aswell for properly working with him instead of shoehorning/hiding him in positions where his weaknesses least hurt the side.
  9. Super Frank Thread

    Early days but it feels like Hazard leaving has free'd up the attack. Hazard was such a good talisman that the rest of the attackers seemed to let him take charge and take a back seat which often lead to nullified attacking play when he was doubled/tripled up on effectively, in theory that should have meant our other players were more destructive with the extra space but it never quite panned out that way. There were signs last season we could cope well without him (we won 20/21 he didn't start although granted he did have to come on in a few of them) but at this minute it looks like we can more than cope. I thought we were better defending the open game today but set pieces is a serious problem, we look capable of conceding at every high ball into the box and so nearly did again, thankfully there's not really any Bolton, Stoke esque sides in the league these days, imagine us facing Delap's long throw's

    The same age Salah got 10 goals in 50 games in the Swiss league and Europa, Mount looks a decent bet to trump that total playing PL and CL. Anyway i only made that point because i disagree with ML's assessment that Mason isn't on the same tier as what those two were in their early 20's as i firmly believe he is, time will tell if he has a similar career.
  11. The English Football Thread

    Not saying he'll turn out as good but Mount is better than 20 year old versions of both, especially Salah.
  12. The English Football Thread

    Most important thing is we have learnt and making sure this doesn't happen with Mount, Odoi etc
  13. The English Football Thread

    I wonder if he will do his interview wearing the club merchandise he told fans to boycott.
  14. The English Football Thread

    Worry about them losing another time, it's in our best interests to see Arsenal smacked right up in this one.
  15. The English Football Thread

    Palace have now won away vs all the top six atleast once since promotion.
