  1. Do we really have to sell him? As was said by numerous people on other threads one of the biggest complaints about our squad is that we don't utilise or have depth. Fine if we get Bakayoko (btw there are probably better alternatives) but if he can't play then somebody like Matic seems like just the kind of player that would be suited to replace him
  2. delete ffs what's with these double posts
  3. Indeed. We're doing very well but we need to improve in a few areas, as highlighted above mostly Rashford that has been playing -- and only due to injury problems for Van Ghoul's squad do people know about him
  4. Around the time of his appointment I remember Juventus fans saying that one of Conte's biggest faults was his big game performance. I don't remember if it was only for away records (that would make sense given his near-impervious home record) but if we see the games this season it looks like the comments have some merit. Arsenal/Spurs/Man Utd comfortably beating us without us getting much on goal, poor against Liverpool who had barely obtained any points during that period. Man City we were clinical against but we thankfully scored our few chances whereas they failed to put away multiple of theirs (many pundits and writers arguing that if they had the game would have been over by HT If we are to maintain title challenges and progress in Europe then I really hope we can work on this through tactical nous and greater use of the squad because let's face it, comments about improper utilisation of the squad don't stem through Conte, but from years ago.
  5. Everton away is gonna be tough man
  6. Not to mention Manchester United too who almost never lose at WHL
  7. I have a bet on Spurs to win 4-0 so hopefully they score another
  8. Sanchez did next to nothing against Navas and he's a fantastic winger in his own right. I think Pep has drilled enough confidence to the player so much so that you'll rarely see any winger destroy a fullback when it comes to top teams (not to mention the players around him to help)
  9. Think we're going to be rekt. Not sure why but I feel delph gonna have an amazing game
  10. Tottenham's next three fixtures are f**king easy to ours Swansea, watford, bournemouth at WHL
  11. Kelly and Delaney are some of the worst defenders in the PL ffs (from what people on another forum are saying)
  12. “F*** off, Mourinho” chant #cfc fans after Mourinho wanted Hazard booked for diving. Mourinho holds up 3 fingers (for titles he won here). from a few reporters
  13. Well your assumption here is not accurate, I'm not sure what point in telling me this when your counter doesn't offer much than 'They have better players in KDB trust me I've seen Pep' Elaboration on my part would be helpful though, so below is what I mean: I said they have Touré as an option i.e now he's playing and not excluded out of the squad when he was all season which isn't false. City's team generally hasn't pressed efficiently until Pep came in to the point where Aguero is putting in a shift, as we've seen against the likes of Barcelona so while it's likely that we're going to see Gundogan alongside KDB/Fernandinho I doubt Pep would include him in the squad again if he didn't feel he was at least somewhat mobile. The above has shown he's often able to change the game in an instant by bullying the opposition and being one of the best passers in that team (which could be a problem for our midfield like it was for the first half of Spurs as well as Liverpool when they passed triangles around the likes of Kanté, although tbh we weren't playing the same formation there). He also pops up with a screamer every so often If we're defensively sound like we have been, or if we bring on Branna early on to try and shut up shop, he'll probably bring him on to help open the game up or alternatively if the game opens up with the players on the field then Touré is an option to help exploit that, especially if one of his current players isn't up to it on the day (i.e while Gundogan is just as good as a passer he hasn't done it to nearly the same level as he's done with Dortmund whereas we know Touré can do that with City) so his mobility relative to the rest of the players won't be as much an issue. Put it this way, City have Toure as an option is worse for us than Pep not having him as an option; he's not a liability.
  14. City now have Touré as an option which might cause some problems to our midfield similar to what Dembele did. Their defence isn't the best so if we can press their backline we could secure a fine result. Draw would do fine but I'm worried about what Pep might have tactically
  15. Really? The only issues I see they have is to do with their defensive organisation -- in particular among set pieces. Their attack is spectacular and each individual player they've had from last season has now improved.
