  1. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Selling Kante? Who will be our only world class player when Eden leaves? You all cannot be serious.
  2. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    If Juventus want him and we let him go, jesus christ. I do not see us getting any top managers in unfortunately. For me theres no way we will get Allegri, no way he leaves Juventus and goes fuck it I will go to a club with so much uncertainty. He will have a better move in his mind surely if hes leaving Juventus.
  3. Next Manager?

    That is rather less than a complete denial. SPOX’s editor-in-chief, Martin Volkmar, told Bild, “We stand by our story.” snip Van Bommel would be an interesting move for them but he would be in the same sort of category as Niko Kovac, hugely inexperienced at a top top European club as a manager. Allegri being available for nothing, having won leagues and cups with AC Milan and Juventus, two clubs with the sort of history and stature similar to Bayerns as well as having a respectful record in the CL, think a club as well run and organised as them would be daft to not consider him. Think Bayern would consider him more than Barca but you never know, Valverde was a bit of a less high profile appointment and Bilbao didnt exactly play incredibly similar to how Barca did so who knows.
  4. Next Manager?

    Allegri will probably be considered for Barca and Bayern, who are both going to change their managers apparently even though both of them have won the league.
  5. 22. Willian

    Talking of corners, our corners have been fucking shite for about the last 3 seasons. Hazard and Willian need to stop taking them.
  6. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Regardless to be a top team who wants to compete in multiple competitions we need to improve the squad, look at City had very good CBs already went and signed Laporte. Had Sterling, Sane, Silva already went and signed Mahrez. Thats what we used to be like, had Lampard, Mikel, Makalele, Essien already and then signed the likes of Ballack and Deco. Dont think we can guarantee the likes of CHO and RLC anything like okay you will play every week. Same with Andreas. If we signed a top level winger, top level midfielder and top level centre back it would not only improve the first 11 but the squad because we would shift some of the crap out.
  7. Luka Jović

    I think youll be surprised how often he will play. He offers a slightly more physical approach than Benzema. Both are very rounded but Benzema for all his positives struggles with consistency. Suarez is still very capable of magic on his day and probably be first choice at Barca undoubtedly where as Jovic has more chance to get in ahead of Benzema 110%. Be harder to displace Suarez than Benzema.
  8. Luka Jović

    Those 4 are wingers though. Jovic is a 9. Benzema is 30 odd, he needs a longterm replacement. Real wont care because they need to improve and in typical fashion they throw money at 5-10 players.
  9. Paulo Dybala

    Would definitely take any of the 3 in all fairness. Dybala is still an absolutely incredible player, hasnt worked this season but I still think he has got another level or two to go to.
  10. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    What a disaster. Fair enough the game was for a good cause but you need to prioritize things as a club. Having your best players fit when you have a cup final or playing a meaningless friendly (although it was for a good cause raised a lot of cash)....
  11. Luka Jović

    He will get plenty time, Real are wanting to offload Mariano and Benzema needs real competition, has done since they sold off Higuain to Napoli years ago. Diaz and Rodrygo are wingers.
  12. Paulo Dybala

    Apparently the rumours are he will go to Spain. So Barca or Real probably
  13. Luka Jović

    Never had a chance. Was obvious Barca and Real would go for him. Whos gonna turn them down for us? Realisitically?
  14. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Lampard in? For how long 1 season when he cant get a decent finish with the shite that the board has accumulated in the last however many transfer windows? When will people see regardless of manager, a squad containing the likes of Morata, Bakayoko, Willian, Alonso, Luiz, Giroud, Drinkwater, Moses, Zappacosta, Barkley, Kovacic (Ive included who may or may not be here due to transfer ban and a change of coach could give them another chance so to speak)... simply arent that good to compete against the likes of City and Liverpool at the top end of the table which is where the club undoubtedly wants to be. If Sarri goes, we need a top top manager to come in and stop the rot. Not someone whos only managed one season (please nobody state Pep Guardiola never had more than one season before he was at Barca the guy is up there with Sir Alex as arguably the best managaer in history and probably the defining one in modern history). It would be even more riskier than Sarri, Di Matteo, Villas-Boas or whoever. The club needs to be sorted behind the scenes, throwing a guy with one seasons experience into the job, into a transfer banned team that either needs new signings or massive coaching improvements would be madness. I think people are being too sentimental to think Lampard is one, ready for the job and two, the right man for it. There is maybe a huge appeal maybe because he is playing loanee players from us in Tomori and Mount but again, Derby is Derby, in the championship.... and even then if were ever going to appoint a manager from the championship, Marcelo Bielsa is surely the only realistic one? Leeds would never let it happen but imagine what he could do with this group of players, even if they arent all great. His coaching at Leeds the difference is day and night to how theyve been in previous seasons. Fair enough Derby might win yet and go up which for Frank would be a good start for his managerial career but it doesnt mean he's ready in any capacity for us.
  15. Mental episode. Didnt quite expect Dany to go as mad as she did, burning an entire city basically but hey ho. Quite gutted she didn't torch Cersei with her dragon. But yeah fuck it, was a good watch I felt. That Gregor Clegane is an absolute mutant thank fuck he died.
  16. 10. Eden Hazard

    True but Madrid were shocking before Zizou came back in. Regarding Modric, he isnt a player who hugely relies on physical qualities either and hasnt showed any huge signs of slowing down so I think in a team where theres a Casemiro he will be fine. Maybe he will see his minutes reduced or his role changed like Xavi and Iniesta had at Barca too. If they sell Bale theyll definitely be going for another big attacker then as well, Mbappe perhaps? Would be a difficult move but theres no doubt they can pull it off. If they sell a few players off, like rumoured (Bale, Cellabos, Mariano, Llorente, Vazquez) on top of say 250 or 300m or whatever they will likely splash, they wont be overly fussed about FFP.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    Regardless if some of those players leave Real, they will buy big replacements. Especially after the poor season they had after selling Ronaldo and not reinforcing properly. Hazard and Militao are only the first signings and I honestly wouldnt be surprised if they went to push the boat out for Mbappe as well although he would cost probably 300m and or possibly Pogba (strange move unless they can get him really consistent). And even the guys who are wrong side of 30s or near enough, Modric, Benzema, Bale, Ramos, Marcelo all those guys are top top players and much better than what we have here. They still have plenty to contribute in some capacity. Again though, theres plenty life in the likes of Modric, Kroos and even Bale if they keep them fit (or dont get rid of them). Benzema is very inconsistent but in terms of a link up striker he is very good and Eden will thrive playing in tandem with him. They will be a lot better next season, they are undoubtedly gonna drop some serious cash this summer. Eden will be more productive I would imagine but hes never gonna score 30 goals a season regardless which is what they need . They arent in good shape this season but they are still a better team than we are in terms of the quality they have in their squad and will probably sign much much better quality players than we will in the summer.
  18. 10. Eden Hazard

    They are buying promising & potential trouble if rumours are to be believe. Going from Pedro & Willian to Lucas & Asensio isn't exactly a notable step up. Asensio, Bale, Isco, Benzema, Modric, Kroos, Casemiro, Ramos, Varane, Carjaval.... Lucas isnt a bad player either hes probably got better end product than Willian. The step up in players around him will be huge. Regardless.
  19. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Think Marca were reporting it and four four two mentioned it. Maybe not in the one deal but think the idea is Kova being sold to us for however much would ultimately lower Edens price by a bit. Seen something that we were demanding 140m€ and Real want to pay just over 100m.
  20. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Kovacic will be in the Hazard deal. Definitely. Higuain has disappointed but there has been times where hes shown his experience, sort of movement which youd expect for someone whos had the career hes had but hes been very very shite at holding the ball up at times and has not looked matchfit in most games for us. He also hasnt been ruthless enough with some chances. Can think of an amount of chances he would of scored prior in his career. I dont know where we go from here regarding a CF though, with the ban in place and even Giroud possibly leaving... its slim pickings from what we have on the books so I would imagine if the club has got the chance to get Higuain back again (rumours theres a season loan extention clause or buy out option but no idea what the ban will do in regards to that but surely the club expected it and put some sort of work around in) they will probably go for it. Unless Morata comes back maybe? Unfortunately or fortunately however that works out. I do think if he shed a bit of weight it would make a difference but hes at an age now where maybe hes not at his best but even if he were able to score between 12-17 goals a season, it would make a difference and I dont think he has forgotten how to score but his physical condition since arriving has been poor. I must admit I expected him to be in slightly better shape. Hes never been rapid but an extra yard of pace would make a massive difference. I dont think Tammy will be anything other than a back up here either. Thats if he even comes back and doesnt go back on loan. It will be a strange summer if the ban stays in place. Mount has been mentioned and talks of him getting a visa for our pre season trip to Japan I think it is. Reece James also back after his season at Wigan so theres 2 who could be fixtures of the 25 man squad next year. Tammy maybe?
  21. Leicester 0-0 Chelsea

    Honestly I thought his final pass was poor today but lets be honest our midfield and attack hasnt been as productive as we would of liked to see or expected it to be this season under Sarri. Its all good getting up the pitch but the top top players and top teams are dangerous in the final third. Still think he can improve upon that. Regardless, big steps made this season by Ruben, adding goals and assists to his game as well as improving his fitness and tactically.
  22. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Thought he did well at CB today up against Vardy who seems to have a new lease of life under Rodgers. Hes played as a CB in a flat back 4 for Spain albeit on the left side as opposed to the right, probably first time hes been used there for us from the start in a back 4. Still think with plenty rest he should be good to go next season. World cups, euros and playing every week for 3 or 4 seasons on end will catch up with any player. I mean even Barca slowly reduced Messis minutes over last few seasons because of how regularly hes been used in the last 5-8 seasons... its no shock to assume Azpi probably wasnt playing well earlier in the season (along with more than half the team) because of fatigue. Definitely need to keep him around.
  23. 5. Jorginho

    Think that shows how confident he is right now. Hes playing excellently. Think him, Kante and Ruben have to be our main MF 3 next year.
  24. Christian Pulisic

    Tbf for a 20 year old, there hardly bad stats. Being involved in 44 goals in 126 games is really not that bad, basically one goal or assist every 3 games and for a young player who isnt even 23 or upwards yet (young players all have inconsistencies and we are getting him at an age now where he should really be looking to knuckle down and add more consistency and end product to his game), I think hes got a huge chance to really improve here. Look at Ruben and Callum under Sarri, as younger players they have improved facets of their game under him and theres no reason why Pulisic cant do the same. Do feel he will have to start fast here though to impress some people who obviously werent sure if he was worth the cash but If those stats were Callums for instance from 4 seasons of his career it would be a different story....
  25. 10. Eden Hazard

    Honestly think these sort of interviews make it more and more obvious hes off and that his mind isnt 110% on the season still although again his performance tonight wouldnt exactly prove otherwise, it may be almost done but still. Any other player wouldnt say anything but as weve seen with Eden, Lukaku, Courtous, de Bruyne it must be a Belgian thing 😂 I wont miss these sort of interviews.or the ones he does when with the NT when he goes tbf.
