  1. 6 years ago we could put out a lineup of Malouda Drogba Anelka Lampard Ballack Essien Cole Terry Carvalho Ivanovic Cech How many of the current bunch would get into that team?
  2. I think like the Mahrez rumours the James links aren't actually serious. Seems like our two major targets are Koulibaly & Lukaku. Conte seems content with the rest of the team.
  3. I truly hope we fail in our pursuit for a 3rd striker because no top team is playing with 2 9's. I know Conte favours workrate over technique first and foremost but he seriously doesn't believe we have enough creativity in our side right? If Hazard gets injured we are well & truly done for. We've been linked with CB's & strikers all summer but not fullbacks, AM hybrids or wingers. Looks like we'll be the same exact team we've been for the last 3 seasons, a workmanlike side utterly reliant on one player.
  4. So if Hazard gets hurt our other options are Moses, Willian & Pedro? This is truly going to be a long season.
  5. Yep. It's only possible to sign one player at a time.
  6. No offense but you're easily the most bipolar poster on here.
  7. Dumb comparison. United are a much bigger club than us.
  8. The answer is no, simply not good enough defensively.to play in CM & isn't a winger either.

    Workhorse performance, he'll dominate the midfield unlike Cesc just as I thought but lacks the vision & playmaking we so desperately need without him. A couple of moments of class but not enough.
  10. Still holding my fingers out for Paredes. Conte revived Pirlo's career so I'm sure he knows the importance of a player of his ilk, can't handle another season of Matic being 1st choice. You think Fabregas stays beyond this window btw?
  11. Some of it is warranted. Neville had a front row view of Ronaldo's development from a boy into a World superstar so he's probably overcritical of Eden because he thinks he's in that tier talent wise but he takes it too far at times. His performance levels indeed dropped off in the 2nd half but it was a combo of fatigue & the usual triple teams we see now. Probably should've drifted infield to find more space but I'm guessing he was under strict instructions from Conte to stay out wide.
  12. Neville is a twat. He was clearly fatigued, had nothing to do with "walking pace" or any of that bollocks. He was subbed off for Moses for a reason. Anyway, elite season inbound. PoTY lock.
  13. I thought he had a good game but I like him in a B2B role rather than the disciplined one he was given today. I know he's forced to play that position because Matic is a liability but Conte isn't making the most of his skills.
  14. He impressed in only 5 minutes lol. C
  15. Another season of mediocrity beckons. Costa and Willian are too limited to be playing 2 defensive midfielders.
  16. Watching Coutinho & Mane take Arsenal apart yesterday is why I'm adamant we desperately need to improve our RW position. Mane would've been a great option to bolster our attack.

    You still think Willian is better than Mane? This forum greatly overrates him for some reason.
  18. Does he have the makings of a top player or is he another Bamford? I haven't really kept up with youth football since the McEchran era. I know he has an insane goalscoring record at youth level but what about his technique, movement, pace, vision, passing, hold up play etc
  19. Are our fans really slagging off the board for not paying £50m for a CB that's only had 1 great season? Otamendi went for £32m last season, Hummels £30m this year, we're already overpaying by A LOT. Anyone claiming we've left it late is insane, we've been heavily linked with him since MAY!!!! £50m is what you pay for forward players. I'll be upset if we let De Laurentiis bend us over when we could steal Mahrez from Leicester for that amount.

    Should be converted to Right back imo. Could be our Marcelo.
  21. We're busy chasing after Lukaku instead because Conte is fixated on playing with 2 strikers.
  22. I wish I was in charge of this club's transfers. Matic is a good player at times even great but he isn't top class because of his obvious weaknesses. I'd sell him to Juve and sign his replacement Paredes from Roma who's currently available. Hazard Cesc/Oscar Kante Mahrez Paredes That midfield is easily attainable if we had the ambition of a big club. The obvious weak link would be Cesc/Oscar which we could replace the following season.
  23. If we're after a Defensive midfielder it should be Leandro Paredes. After Matic & Ramires a ban should be placed on donkeys with no technique. He's a perfect modern day defensive midfielder. With him & Kante on board we'd just need an elusive #8 like Pogba to complete our midfield.
