Never mind, seems like he just prefers Spurs.

 

Lol at the lack of ambition if that's the case.

A source close to Ross Barkley has said this evening that the midfielder never underwent a medical at #Chelsea today. [Sky Sports]

That's despite Everton shareholder Farhad Moshiri claiming Ross Barkley had changed his mind after the medical at #Chelsea. [Sky Sports]

Mate, I think the problem is the fact that should alonso get hurt, there is no backup for him.

Don't fool yourself, Kenedy has no place in LWB

I get that, but you don't get a 70m player (Sandro) to sit on the bench right? :)

so getting Sandro would have displaced Alonso and frankly he does not deserve it considering his motm performances (this and last season). I know they don't mean much around here - see Matic....

We made 7 fucking signings (drinkwater if we get him ) 

 

not elite players  but some have the potentional to become elite (morata ,Christensen,bakayoko)

 

drinkwater  is  is a good signing as a back up . 

 

 

Iam fucking sure that if we had signed drinkwater last year all of you would be celebrating .

I wasn't pointing to Sandro (Not per se at least), just the fact that there was no LWB signed at all. I do believe Alonso has done amazing, and has won his spot at the club, but had we brought Sandro (or anyone else), that would have pushed Alonso further to keep his place. Yeah, 70m pricetag can get you an initial run of games but we need competition and depth in each position. 

If Alonso had outplayed Sandro, he would be our still in our starting eleven. If Sandro outplays him, that means we got an upgrade and now have a strong backup. Win-win situation for the team.

 

No idea why you bring Matic into this. He wanted to leave, and past performances can only get you so far if you are not doing as well as you used to.

Our squad may be a little thin in areas but :

City are top heavy. Pep still has question marks in my opinion whether his style will get the club over the line throughout the season in England. Keeper is unproven. And they are also thin in key areas if Kompany and Fernandinho get injured.

Liverpool haven't addressed that their keeper and defence are shite.

Spurs only replaced Walker with Aurier - is that an improvement? Llorente and Sanchez only beef up the squad and don't improve the starting XI of a team that haven't won anything yet.

Arsenal I don't even need to go into.

I still think as long as we don't get key injuries we'll be challenging with United and City for the title. Liverpool and Spurs challenging for 4th place.

Fair enough. However, I do believe that sometimes players aren't better than others, just different. Sandros pace is the clear preference of some here, but I think in the right system,ours, Alonso is just as good.

heh matic was never appreciated around here despite his several motm performances, but I digress.
