Lmao it sounds like Real want to buy half of our team, at least the better ones :D Tbh it's kinda good, shows we have some really good players on our books.

See this?

I'm in love with N'Golo We got him for the low low I'm in love with N'Golo  

One poor game (his passing was shit yes) and one of our most consistent players this season and reasons why we are top of the league needs a long term replacement. speechless.

Absolute champion this guy is.

 

Him running down Ozil needs to be on the end of year DVD.

He is absolutely exceptional. The amount of times I mutter "wow, N'golo" in a match is crazy.

I wish we made more signings like him. Not super expensive, coming from midtable clubs, good age, little hype and proven. You just knew it was good deal back then. 

No questions what he can do and if he can do this and that. He is brought to break attacks and he does it brilliantly. No one was asking if he can pass or control the ball etc unlike with Bakayoko. 

I think we have so many questions when we are signing players. Bakayoko...is he techincal enough, can he pass...Morata can he be main striker, if he has killer instinct. 

When you buy someone, you need to know he can do it. Striker to score goals, midfielder to tackle or create. 

And we are wondering if these players can even do their main job and basic football work like passing when we sign them...

And its clear such players struggle more. 

The only thing you have to ask yourself is can he do it for our club, in our league. Not if striker can score on his own, if midfielder can pass and hold on the ball. Those are basics that are expected.

We were fortunate he had a reasonable buyout clause & the board acted fast for a change. He wouldn't have joined us without the clause, so he isn't a great example.

Let's face it.. This guy is one of a kind. There literally is no other player around who can run, tackle and read the game like Kante does in such a fasion.

I won't slate Kante for not-so-good performance. It happens, he is our most consistent player.

One other thing is bothering me. It's like people are not aware of his deficiencies. Ok, sure, he is great in getting the ball, covering, tackling, intercepting, running etc etc. And he is great. But to even THINK of buying midfield partner for him who isn't really good on the ball is almost a suicide. His midfield partner first and foremost must be somewhat comfortable on the ball. And that's why I think, among other reasons, Bakayoko wouldn't ever be enough for us. He may improve, but he would need to get on some AT LEAST Herrera/Ramsey, or Dembele from Spurs technique level to compensate Kante's lack of ball playing ability.

It really depends :) You can easily play with two b2b midfielders with limited offensive skills if you put a good creative force in between ... and suitable wingbacks wouldn't hurt anyone, right? :D 

I think we slag our midfield a lot but never really point our critics against poor wingbacks that are unable to beat defenders in 1on1 situation and tend to play backwards :(

Are you kidding? Our wing-backs get far more stick on here and everybody recognizes they need to be upgraded, there isn't a day this isn't reminded.

One goal and Alonso is suddenly the best left back in the league :D

Let's be realistic - any wingback that we ever get won't be really technically sound (like heavyweights - Marcelo, Lahm, Alaba). We may upgrade on that, buy someone faster, more proactive etc, like Emerson for example, but he won't give us possession dominance and better all-round team ball playing skill.

It should be easier to buy midfielder with good ball control/passing/dribbling than look for that qualities in the wingbacks or relying solely on our attackers to do all that and drop deep to create something.
