  1. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Think he played well for Spain. I think if he keeps playing well, Luis Enrique might use him as his first choice over Alba (didn’t even call him up) personally, I think defensively he can be more useful than Alba who for me has always been quite naive in that aspect of his game although he has real pace. Also Spain dropped off at times v England and even Enrique’s Barca they would sit off and soak up a bit of pressure. Also he adds more physicality, height and a good final delivery to the Spain team. Even if he weren’t to be first choice for Spain, they will be a lot more balanced under Enrique, interesting appointment.
  2. Luke Shaw

    Been a huge improvement so far for United. In the England squad too. If Real were to come for Alonso in January would take him as a replacement.
  3. 11. Pedro Rodríguez

    Good to se this guy guy getting credit because about 4 months ago people were desperate to see us he get rid of him but he’s shown his worth so far under Sarri. 3 goals in 4 games, I think he will easily get 10 goals in the PL this season, he just looks so at home in this new system and style of playing, not a creator as such but a mover and somebody who can combine with others. I think giving him that new contract was pushed more by Sarri as opposed to the club, we all know there stance on older players.
  4. 22. Willian

    Bit of a problem when this happens. Eden and Willi holding it for too long, I believe Di Canio touches on it vs Newcastle on analysis and I think it will be something that gets better still because we are only 4 matches in. Hazard is now in a position where we are an attack minded team, the sole burden of having to carry the ball or retain it to escape pressure is nowhere near what it was. Willian the same he should be looking to get into goalscoring situations. They can still do all that other stuff but they should be thinking bigger picture, to get more goals and more assists because the likes of Luiz, Jorginho and Kovacic are able to find these guys in dangerous positions. I think it will come, I see Pedro, Willian and Hazard all contributing to a lot of goals this season.
  5. 11. Pedro Rodríguez

    3 goals in 4 matches. Good form. Luis Enrique will be keeping an eye out for him for tha nationa team I’d imagine.
  6. 30. David Luiz

    Big chances/breaks Bournemouth got came from a lot of his errors today I think.
  7. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Ahead of who? Pedro? Hazard? He isn't using him because everyone else has done good so far. Its obvious.
  8. Aaron Ramsey

    Ozil is on 350K a week and he hasn't done anything spectacular in a few years for Arsenal (despite his undisputed ability and reputation from previous seasons), so I can see why he'd want a big pay rise. Also Emery has said hes very important to them so it makes sense. I think if we were to eventually work towards getting him it would mean no Kovacic on a perm deal, which for me is not worth it, Ramsey is a good player but Kovacic can be an amazing player (Sarri really likes him too).
  9. Elseid Hysaj

    Maybe if he doesn't play often enough this season but its up to him to break into the team. Even then Hysaj isn't going to come from being nailed on first choice at Napoli to not play every week here, lets be frankly honest about that, it would be a stupid move for him because again Azpi I think is one of the first names on the team sheet and Sarri is hardly known for rotation.
  10. Elseid Hysaj

    Just be using Chelsea's interest as a springboard to get a new contract. Thats all. Hes good but I doubt we'd ever sign him as long as Azpi is here (anyone who thought otherwise must have been dreaming) and also Zappacosta who is more than good enough for a back up who I think will play maybe 10-15 times a season.
  11. The Mourinho Thread

    Fucking hell Jose Mourinho to PSG? Can you really imagine Neymar and Mbappe being happy to play as left and right wing backs. They've only just appointed Tuchel too. Ridiculous rumours. If he is forced out of Old Trafford he should take time off and go to anger management classes or something haha.
  12. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    I think he'll get a chance this season. Azpi is maybe the first second or third guy on the team sheet for me but Europa League games and cup matches Davide can definitely play and I think we seen that in pre-season he looked a lot better than he had in the previous season. I wouldn't say hes exactly brilliant but hes more than good enough for a back up and when the Europa League and cups kick off along with the busy festive periods having him playing every now and then will come in handy. Especially considering Azpi has almost played every game for the last 3 seasons as well.
  13. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Perhaps but again, he scored big goals and that dug us out a lot of times, some of the winners he got you'd want to see other offensive players stepping up to get so in that regard its quite an interesting attribute for a full back to have. Hes been excellent offensively and other than 20 minutes against Arsenal, hes looked more than solid enough despite concerns (I wasn't sure either how he'd do in a back 4) this season. I know he isn't the fastest but hes not the slowest and I like that he will get quite physical in duels despite people maybe thinking hes your traditional Spanish LB who is a bit light in challenges. I really think that Sarri wanting him to get outside and hit low and hard crosses along the box for runners will be a big plus for us because we all know his delivery can be very good at times and hes also able to change it up by coming inside and making third man runs to get into goal scoring positions. What annoyed me a bit last year was when we were really narrow he'd be in the box more often than not and not mix it up, we need him to be varied because as we seen v Newcastle we were very congested centrally and a bit of width really helps create spaces and drag opposition backlines about but also last season we didn't get as many men in the box but now you see under Sarri, Morata, Pedro, Barkley, Kante all taking turns at getting in the box to give us more options.... so hopefully his delivery out wide is very consistent and theres no reason why he can't get 10 plus assists this season.
  14. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    100% agree. He was caught out at Arsenal along with Luiz for a 20 minute period but other than that and the Roma games last season I don't hes really put a foot wrong since moving here. He is an excellent player, quite underrated, obviously there are perhaps better players in some teams but for us he has that good blend of physicality and technical ability (a lot of German CBs do). There was maybe doubts about him in a back 4 but I think he's looked good so far. Rondon is a big player, somebody who on his day can give anybody a hard time and he didn't give him an inch.
  15. 30. David Luiz

    Well when hes caught out ball watching for a goal its no surprise he gets blamed. It was his fault, he was stationary. It was perhaps a near impossible header to score true but any defender worth their money there isn't caught out ball watching. I wouldn't say his performance was a howler, the Arsenal game he was poorer but again, it just shows that teams could need one chance to score the one goal against us. Luiz's concentration is a massive issue and it has been for years, at Benfica, here, PSG and here again as well as with Brazil. Hardly making him a scapegoat, we conceded a goal because he was ball watching and didn't get close to Joselu.... its fair to make the assumption that if another CB had been playing perhaps they don't score there because Luiz is notorious for lapses in concentration.
