  1. General Transfer Talk

    I hear some RUMOURS that Roman has given AVB €150M to strenght the team on 4 positions next month. A full back (right), a central defender, a creative midfielder and a striker. Let's say that these rumours are right, who would you get?? On top of AVB's list are rumoured: Alvaro Pereira, Gary Cahill, Jack Rodwell and Gonzalo Higuain or Edinson Cavani..
  2. Nabil Fekir

    Nabil Fekir is a French/Algerian attacking midfielder/Striker currently playing for Olympique Lyonnais. He mainly plays as an attacking center midfielder or a left winger but he can also play on the right or even as a Striker. He is left footed. He possesses all the qualities of a very promising attacking talent; technical ability,creativity,vision,pace,dribbling,set-pieces. He is making a tremendous duo with his teamate Lacazette contributing to a large number of goal/assists to their team, which is top of ligue 1 at the minute. I know all the hype is around Lacazette at the moment but I believe he is only being overshadowed by his teamate's impressive goal record. He reached an incredible level this season and he's only 21 years old. I think he is the real deal. We haven't been linked with him but there wasn't any thread about him and I wanted to dicuss the player. This is not the position where we need to strenghten right now, but seeing the boy's talent It would be a shame to miss on him if he were to move. He is a big talent. I don't think I've been that much impressed with a ligue 1 player since Eden Hazard. I highly suggest to anyone who didn't see him to watch some lyon games and judge for themselves, Lyon play a very attractive football and they have lot promising players in their ranks so you won't get disapointed. Meanwhile here is a Youtube video.
  3. Krzysztof Piatek

    Barca are after the new Lewandowski. The guys already got 7 goals for Genoa Hes got to be worth a go. What do you think Mz @Vesper
  4. Piotr Zielinski

    With it rumoured that Sarri if he comes wants to bring several players with him and Zelinski is said to be one of them. So thought we might like to get to know him bertter He is obviously a great player and knows Sarriball inside out. Can yo imagine both him AND Jorginho coming with Sarri OH and drag KK along for the ride! OMFG! Karan Tejwani writes a detailed scout report about Piotr Zielinski, Napoli’s impressive midfielder http://outsideoftheboot.com/2017/04/10/scout-report-piotr-zielinski/
  5. Lorenzo Insigne

    With us apparently looking at him (and thinking he would be amazing here) I thought we should give him his own thread! Now theres obviously a few problems with him coming to us. 1 The poison dwarf twat known as ADL and his love for us! 2. Hes been at Napoli 8 years and has a contract till summer 2022. 3. Even with the first 2 problems sorted can you see us paying €200 mill for him? Nah didn't think so! But we need our dreams!! Hes a short arse isn't he lol
  6. Anderson Talisca

    We need to go for this lad ASAP The guy has scored 12 goals and 4 assists in 8 games so far Hes on loan from Benfica right now but has got a lot of top teams after him. Benfica will obviously want him back but the Dippers really want him and have been in touch sending peeps to China. Mou has been a long time fan of his and wants him He needs to be in Chelsea Blue
  7. Jose Gaya

    With MAYBE RM coming after Alonso it might pay us to start looking around, As my 2 long time faves Sandro and Telles would be impossible we need to look elsewhere. I also like Alexandro Grimaldi which we have a thread for byt we have none for Gaya who looks nailed on for us!! And it would really piss off Manure cause they were linked with him all summer. Hes young,fast, good football awareness, loves getting forward and is good with the ball at his feet and can actually defend too. Only thing is hes got a contract till 2023 - only a bit of paper tho eh! WHO IS JOSE GAYA http://outsideoftheboot.com/2014/10/12/scout-report-jose-gaya-valencia-and-spains-young-left-back/ STYLE OF PLAY, STRENGTHS, AND WEAKNESSES What has been key to Gaya inheriting the left-back berth from Bernat has been the attacking traits he has shown to be akin to his predecessor. With Bernat often venturing so far forward he could have been mistaken for a winger, the same has been true of Gaya who is given licence to push forward and overlap Pablo Piatti, the Argentine attacking midfielder who is encouraged to cut in from the left in Santo’s 4-2-3-1 system. Santo has been a huge advocate of his full-backs going forward, with Antonio Barragan, the former Liverpool right-back who is enjoying a renaissance under the new manager, also liberated on the opposite side. Key to this is the defensive discipline of Javi Fuego, the midfield enforcer who drops back into a defensive 3 when Valencia have position, allowing for Gaya to play more as a wing-back with a greater focus on getting into more attacking positions. It allows for Valencia’s attack to look fearsome when he joins Piatti, Rodrigo and Parejo as creative influences and his attacking statistics coming from the left are impressive. Only Rodrigo, Alcacer and winger Sofiane Feghouli have created more chances than Gaya’s 5 so far while his 9 successful dribbles at a rate of 1.3 per game is only bettered by Andre Gomes and Parejo. It all portrays a full-back keen and adept at charging forward with the ball and the opposition is worried about it too, only Parejo and Piatti have been fouled more times than Gaya. To further indicate his comfort on the ball, his range of passing has been superb with an 86% completion rate so far, misplacing just 14 of 191 attempted passes. His crossing can also be dangerous, though it has only led to a single assist so far. At the risk of being caught out of position going forward Gaya’s electric pace can rescue him in a defensive sense, though he is solid enough as a full-back, making the most amount of tackles in the Valencia squad so far with 22 and making 17 interceptions, a figure bettered only by Javi Fuego. His tally of 18 fouls conceded shows he is not afraid to make a challenge and there is a clear reluctance to be beaten by his opponent; he has been successfully taken on just once in the seven games he has played so far this season. Just don’t expect him to win an aerial battle against a physical winger, standing at a slight 5ft 7 inches, he struggles in the air against stronger players. All of the qualities you expect of a modern full-back are the qualities that Gaya performs well, though there will be a view from his manager from Santo that work will be required on an over-zealousness in the tackle, which gives too many free-kicks away, and the recklessness which reared its head in the win over Atletico where he presented the visitors with a penalty with a needless handball. Still, he held his own throughout the contest and again stood out against testing opponents, and if he continues the exemplary form with which he’s started his senior Valencia career, then it won’t be too long before he’s being considered as the next Los Che left-back, after Bernat and Jordi Alba before him, to be capped for Spain.
  8. Kevin Mbabu

    Kevin Mbabu I dont know if anyone watched the Young Boys v Manure game but the lad had a good one. Hes strong as an ox and fast as hell. He left Fred on his arse a couple of times. Date of Birth: 19.04.1995 (22 years old) Position: Right Back Team: BSC Young Boys Country: Switzerland Value: 2.250.000 € Contract Until: 30.06.2020 Height: 1.84 m Preferred Foot: Right Profile Melingo Kevin Mbabu was born in Switzerland, as a child of a Congolese mother. He began his career at Servette FC’s youth team. In 2012, he promoted to the senior team and at the same year he made his professional debut at the match against Lausanne-Sport. In January 2013, Newcastle United signed him for 1M€. From that date, he played 26 games in total with the senior (three of them was Premier League match) and reserve teams. In addition, he was loaned to Scottish-side Glasgow Rangers in February to July 2015, but he couldn’t find a chance to play in that team. After that, he was loaned to BSC Young Boys in August, 2016. This move has changed his career into a positive way. Following his good performance in first year with the team, YB has completed Mbabu’s transfer in the last summer transfer window. From his first transfer to YB to today, he has played 51 games with 4 goals and 9 assists. The Swiss player had previously played in the national team’s U16, U17, U18, U19 and U20 youth teams and he has no senior team experience yet. But we can say that Mbabu, who has a very consistent and high-quality rival like Michael Lang in front of him, can play in the national team in proportion to his performance in coming years. Mbabu has been playing mostly as right back in 4-defense formation in Young Boys for two seasons. Even if he played as a right wing back in 3-defense formation in few matches before, we should note that he used to play as right back. Strengths (Athletic Physique, Challenges, Tackling, Crossing) Athletic Physique: We can clearly say that his most attracting skill is his athleticism. Mbabu can be effective both in defense and offense thanks to his physics (184 cm and 80 kg), speed, power, agility and dynamism. Challenges: One of the most important advantages of Mbabu’s athletic physique is the success rate of his challenges. Mbabu has an obvious advantage over his opponents in challenges. He wins 61% of 21 challenges and 71% of 4,4 air challenges per match. With the help of his power and speed, he shows success in challenges. Also with the help of his agility and jumping ability, he does not lose air challenges easily. Tackling: His another strength in defense is his tackling ability. He can react quickly to opponent wingers’ dribbling attempts. The Swiss player, who has powerful sliding tackles, can also make very effective interceptions. The fact that we should focus on about his tackles that he has very high success rate in his tackles: 4.8 tackle attempts per game with 80% success rate. Crossing: The young player draws attention with his ability to play and contribute both side of the play. At the most of the games that his team dominates the game and create pressure over opponent, his heat map intensifies on 2nd and 3rd zone of the pitch. As a result of that, he can get opportunity to make offensive actions. For instance, he cross the ball 5 times per match with 30% accuracy. Besides, he tries 2 key passes per game and deliver 60% of them successfully. Dribbling: His another offensive ability is his dribblings. He has much more powerful dribbling skill than an average right-back. Owing to that, he attempts to dribble 6 times per game and completes 55% of them. So, there is no doubt that Mbabu can strengthen his manager’s hand in offensive actions. Weaknesses: (Concentration, Positioning, Short Pass Quality) Concentration: Kevin Mbabu has concentration problem from time to time during the game and this can cause a handicap, especially in defensive side. Depending on this problem, he can be more likely to make mistakes. But we have to mention that when his first times at YB, he had been facing this problem more. So, he has been improving himself about this day by day. Positioning: As a consequence of his concentration problem, we can testify that sometimes the young footballer can face with difficulty to take position in defense. In positional opponent attacks, especially when an opponent player uses the “half-space” area, he can lose his position and he cannot defend opponent player as how he exactly has to. Besides, in some positions, after he supports to his teams attack, he can get in trouble to turn back in defense, particularly in opponent counter-attacks. But it should be noted that he usually reacts well when it comes to turn back to defense, when the opponent team attempts to make counter-attacks. Short Pass Quality: The last thing we have to point out that he has to improve his short pass quality. He plays with average 75% of pass accuracy per game. One of the important reasons why his pass accuracy is not higher than 75% that, he sometimes cannot deliver the short passes to his teammates because he cannot adjust the quality of his passes. If he improves the severity, angle and efficiency of his short passes, it will be a positive development for his career progress. Similar Players: Michael Lang, Kyle Walker The 22 year-old defender shows similarities with Basel’s right back Michael Lang in terms of the contribution to the both sides of pitch, dominance of the challenges and playing style. Also Mbabu’s dynamism, effectiveness in offensive actions and agility reminds us Manchester City’s successful player Kyle Walker, even if they’re not at the same level.
  9. In a perfect world........ GOALKEEPER Swap Thibaut Courtois for Jan Oblak, as Courtois is hellbent on returning to Madrid to be with his wife and family CENTRE BACKS Buy Kalidou Koulibaly (finally, been so frustrated for last 2 years, De Laurentis is a rotter, and IMHO, Koulibaly is the best CB in the world, watch the tape, he is INSANE) Alessio Romagnoli Sell Cahill Luiz Zouma (I dont think he will ever be the same after that horrid injury, such a tragedy) Play more Ethan Ampadu Trevoh Chalobah Fikayo Tomori Left Back Buy David Alaba (best fullback in the world, and the Alex Sandro shite is so done, as far as I am concerned) Yes, I know Alaba will cost £80m or so, but is worth it, IF we are going to try and stay in top 5,6,7,8 clubs in the world. If we simply cannot get Alaba, then go in for Sandro (arfff, 3 times) Sell Marcos Alonso (we will never get more for him, and he is COMPLETELY dependent on a 3 CB system as a WB, and if Conte goes, the back 3 may too Right Back Buy Djibril Sidibé or Elseid Hysaj (would prefer Álvaro Odriozola, but Real Madrid is going to grab him) Sell Moses, time to cash in Midfielders Buy Saúl Ñíguez (can use leverage of Courtois for Oblak swap, we so have to get him) or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (probably out of our price range, as I expect he will go for at least £120m or so, but hej, this is a WISHLIST) Leander Dendoncker (we should have bought him and Goretzka last summer, and now Goretzka is gone to Bayern, where he is going to be a superstar) Manu Trigueros (great passer) Sell EVERYONE BUT KANTE Bakayoko Fabregas Drinkwater Barkley sell them ALL, horrid buys, no clue why we bought this shite (other than Fabregas, and its now or never to sell him for any real quid returned) Right Wingers Federico Chiesa (preferred) or Domenico Berardi Sell Willian Play Charly Musonda more (I think he can be a special player) Left Wingers Buy Leon Bailey Sell Pedro Strikers I REALLY want Mauro icardi (I think he is top 3 striker in world, along with Kane and Lewandowski, who would be a clear number one if he was not 29) I just do not see how we can swing his £120m plus fee he will command, especially with my other massive buys above I guess we roll with Morata (who I still think will come massively good) and Giroud, plus PLAY Callum Hudson-Odoi MORE! Finally lets deal with the potential Hazard nightmare (Real Madrid) If he goes, we HAVE to get Marco Asensio in return plus Raphaël Varane (then remove Romagnoli from my buy list above) We also could add in Courtois and then also demand Casemiro (remove Dendoncker from my list) We then would have to buy another goalkeeper,as Atletico Mardid will not sell Oblak without replacement of Courtois the only ones I would want to buy are one of the following Gianluigi Donnarumma 18 Italy AC Milan Mattia Perin 24 Italy Genoa CFC Alban Lafont 18 France/Burkina Faso FC Toulouse we would line up (if Hazard stays) Goalkeeper Jan Oblak CB César Azpilicueta CB Andreas Christensen CB Kalidou Koulibaly Backups/Swistchouts Romagnoli and Rudiger RWB Djibril Sidibé LWB David Alaba backups Emerson and Zappacosta MF N'Golo Kante MF Saúl Ñíguez Backups Dendoncker, Manu Trigueros RW Federico Chiesa LW Eden Hazard Back ups, switch out Leon Bailey, Charly Musonda Striker Alvaro Morata backups Giroud and Hudson-Odoi IF Hazard leaves, and we also include Courtois in a mega deal with Real then change LW Asensio Goalkeeper one of the 3 I listed above as alternatives to CB Raphaël Varane (then remove Romagnoli from my buy list above) MF Casemiro instead of Dendoncker so there you go, my dream team cheers PS If/When Conte Leaves I REALLY want DIEGO SIMEONE above anyone else, would settle for Joachim Löw or Massimiliano Allegri, hell no to Luis Enrique!
  10. Leroy Sane

    Hasn't been any links or gossip but I would love to see this lad with us. Not sure if it was mindgames but he said this the other day Leroy Sane says Chelsea are Man City's biggest threat to Premier League title http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11679/11446745/leroy-sane-says-chelsea-are-man-citys-biggest-threat-to-premier-league-title Im sure we dont need any help in knowing how good he is but a little reminder
  11. Robert Lewandowski

    Agent confirms interest from Chelsea. I have watched a few Dortmund games and this guy is pure Quality. Source: http://www1.skysport.../11668/7286675/ What do you guys think?
  12. James Rodríguez

    I've been a huge admirer of this kid. A bit underrated because he plays in Monaco. Has been the best player in the WC alongside Robben. He will be one of the top 10 players in the world.
  13. Radja Nainggolan

    I don't like the way Pogba rumours going on. It seems it will be very difficult to get him. What do you guys think about Radja? 433 for Radja - Matic - Fabregas There is a rumour he has a 50% chance to leave. Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan unsure of future as Cagliari talks continue http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11861/9783431/nainggolan-future-up-in-the-air
  14. Alessandro Florenzi

    2 problems as I see it. He loves Roma and his being off for 11 months with his anterior cruciate ligament injuries. But he seems strong now and been back since September. Whats your thoughts?
  15. Stefan di Vrij

    Possible alternative to Stones? Dutch CB at Lazio, 23 years old, 28 caps for Holland was at the 2014 World Cup. Seen him in the World Cup and thought he was good (well the whole Dutch team was surprisingly better than we probably all expected), surprised he went to Lazio and not United with LvG like most people the other year. Good in possession, reads the game well, for his age someone quite a lot of experience and also was captain at Feyenoord for a bit but was then stripped of it due to poor form. I watched the Lazio-Leverkusen game and also the Lazio-Juventus game where they lost the final (which was expected Juventus are a class above most teams in Italy)... but against Leverkusen he looked very very solid and looked to play forward when he could when they were building from deeper, at times when he was under pressure too, he could be an alternative to Stones who many believe we are wanting due to his potential, distribution and age, I'm not sure if he is as quick across the ground as Stones is but he is undoubtedly a good CB, just as good if not better (there are actually a fair amount of CBs out there we could go after instead of Stones for the money mentioned). Obviously we haven't been linked with him and it is more than likely he will stay in Italy but he is good enough to play in England, only a matter of time before he makes the move, still surprised United haven't been linked with him at all this summer.
  16. Fabinho

    I want to ask everyone to debate about a player that I have observed long watching and I think his signing could be important for our future because it can be one of the best young players with more future for such an important position as Right is the back. This debate did not start for the market in January, is a signing for the market of summer for their prospects. I think it might be interesting to debate on these players With this big present and great future. One of the most important players in our team is Branislav Ivanovic but it is approaching 31 years (the birthday in February) and, although I think this guy get the feeling that over the years he's much stronger and all we know that it will be a very high level for many years with us, but it would be interesting to start planning a backup for Ivanovic and this backup can be learning with Ivanovic and Mourinho and is for that backup for the future nearest (2-3 years) can benefit a lot to us. He has a lot of physical strength is very high (Height: 188cm) what would come well for us to set pieces, with the weight needed to do well to shock (Weight: 78kg), has a pretty good defensive ability, with lot with The tactical sense and required to read each situation well in the games to join the attack and create dangerous situations thanks to its great stride that allows Fabinho up and down very quickly for his mental intelligence. But one thing that is most important, Fabinho has already trained with Mourinho. He was training with Jose for six months at Real Madrid and knows how to train Jose and Jose knows him well, in fact I praise him a lot in his day and made his debut with Real Madrid. It is a very complete and very future to meet our band player for many years. He has made a logical process of adaptation to the European game, first passed through the academy of Real Madrid (Real Madrid Castilla) which coincided and train with Mourinho, and then jumped to another European team like Monaco where spent two years getting used to European rhythm. In fact already been summoned by Brazil and looks generational change Maicon and Dani Alves ahead of the 2015 Copa America and especially for the World Cup 2018. He knows European football (played in the Spanish league and the league of France), Fabinho knows the Champions and especially what is most important to know the working methods for training Mourinho. I think it could be a rather interesting for the future to have a backup option Ivanovic and who knows if a future player who can join our inception 11. I hope your comments. I leave several videos of Fabinho so that everyone can comment better. Goal Real Madrid Castilla. Goal for Monaco. Goal for Monaco.

  17. Ciro Immobile

    I'm wondering how Immobile would go down? Cant deny he scores alot of goals in Italy.
  18. Saúl Ñíguez

    Saúl Ñíguez(Atlético Madrid) Position:Midfield -Central Midfield Foot:left Height:1,84 m Nationality:Spain Date of birth: Nov 21,1994 Contract until:30.06.2021 Current market value:£29.75m
  19. Raphael Guerreiro

    Seems like a very promising LWB, if we wanted to strengthen that area further in the summer. Should we go for him over Sandro, and would he be an upgrade on Alonso?
  20. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    So hes a 23 year old striker playing for Saint Etienne. I'm sure a few on here might have seen him play before or heard of him at least. He has an impressive goal tally right now in France. Hes got 8 goals in 12 games right now as Saint Etienne sit 3rd in Ligue 1, he also got 2 assists for them. A lot of French league following Twitter accounts have been mentioning him for a while as a potential target for PL clubs for a while now. He's usually a striker but he played as a LW tonight vs Troyes. He's blessed with pace, a good finisher with his feet and head, versatile and good at dribbling with the ball. Hes also on the African player of the year shortlist along with Mikel, Yaya Toure and all that too.
  21. Ryan Sessegnon

    NO - before I get moaned at again theres no links to US for him. The question is why not?? The kids only 17 but a step up on Alonso already. Hes being looked at by all the major clubs so would be nigh on impossible for us to buy but I'd love the kid here. Big star of the future IMHO

  23. Christian Benteke

    Wow £7m what a bargain by Villa, we really missed a trick with him, what an alternative he would have been to you know who. Next summer maybe offer Villa £20m plus Lukaku on loan (assuming the latter's loyalty to WBA fans doesn't hinder it) those two together could be dynamite for years to come. I will be delighted if we can get him.
  24. Justin Kluivert

    With Mou already wedged firmly up the lads arse telling him to wait for his call it wouldn't hurt us to nip in very quick - but that makes sense so got no f'n chance!
