Hello, I am a Juventus italian fan and maybe I can help you to understand which kind of coach Conte is...(sorry for my english, I hope you will understand) When he arrived in Juventus, he fo

I think the fact that we stuck to our principles, pressing them high up the pitch in spurts throughout the game and more importantly, passing out from the back, even with a few mistakes (note - it goe

I think Utd needlessly bought Lukaku, and Ibra is a better forward despite his age-  Citeh have an array of expensive individuals, but what made us so potent last season was the team ethic, and the formation (that everyone seems to now be copying). 

Incidentally Pochettino was just on R5 saying they will buy 2 or 3 new players before the end of the window

The narrative is quite funny now isn't it? 

First, United want Morata and we want Lukaku. Then Lukaku signs for United and we get Morata. Fans do a topsyturvy the whole way ("Conte wants Morata, Emenalo wants Lukaku" "Board fucked up, Conte wanted Lukaku now we're stuck with Morata")

Anyway in regards to the bit I've pulled out, perhaps but I think they didn't anticipate Ibra's recovery time and went all out then the opportunity arose. It's a dream line up, shades of Drogba, Eto'o, Torres except none were in their prime (ironically when Lukaku himself left). Imagine now they've paid what they have, Lukaku will continue to play ahead even when Ibra's fit.

Either way, it's a nice problem to have :lol: . We've got Morata, Batshuayi and Remy which I guess gives us alternative styles?

Yeah can see Jose sending Ibra on @ 70th minute if Lukaku isn't performing

Lol -it's like life isn't it ? The grass is always greener, you always think the other person/team has a better advantage. 

THOU MUST NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOURS ASS or Wife or something, WIFES ASS.

Indeed. It's a shame because I do think Morata could be a great player but when we're not spending £30m+ on anyone else fans are gonna play Torres card on Morata :lol:. Poor guy probably should've taken 11 and Pedro takes 9. 

It's a shame Costa can't be around to play for 6 months then go back to Spain. Costa, Morata & Michy would be amazing and would solve a few problems already

Hope he does! There's a lot of pressure on Hazard when he returns to make our team flow as well as last season, so let's hope Willian, Pedro and others Musonda  are scoring too

Yes definitely, hopefully Contes putting them through their paces. Impressed with Pedro in the pre seasons till he got attacked, he seems to be improving.

Surprise he is a 70m striker. If he makes an impact and scores 30 goals in his first season than that would be what should be expected given the pricetag.

While I think he's full of shit about there being discontent and having a "mole" in our club, I think there could be big trouble if we have a poor start like we did a couple of years ago.

I think we are going out for Sandro, and if we can't we will then go for an Alonso esque signing, likely Cancelo.

Well when we are offering 15 million for Dirnkwater you think we go for Sandro?

They continue to do the same shenanigans from the last few years. Penny pinching and we will end with Hector/Type of player.

Looking at our lineup and the fixtures, I sure as hell am not using Chelsea players in my fantasy team --but that's the same every season at the opening, right? Musonda was an attractive idea, but I chose Loftus-Cheek instead.

But seriously, everyone is on-edge at the moment. Transfer window is crazy and our Granovskaia and company haven't really proven themselves yet.

Yes if he gets on the score sheet early, should be ok then for confidence. Unfortunately price tags are not always a good indication of what's to come...can you hear the drums Fernando...

PS did I read somewhere youre in Trier ML ?
