  1. The next 'big thing'

    Malcolm Justin Kluivert Ante Coric: New Modric? Amadou Diawara Lucas Torreira Arthur Milinkovic Pulisic Kessie
  2. Charly Musonda jr.

    You bet he won’t be on the bench next game.
  3. Can’t be that useless if Roma & Sevilla want him on loan right?
  4. You bet his subs will be Barkley & Zappa osta.
  5. Agree! He is good enough to be a backup
  6. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    We will need to give him his debut sooner than later. Teams like Borrusia Monchen & Dortmund are poaching them at a young age & guaranteeing them games. The 17yr old kid Dortmund snatched from City has been getting games due to the uncertainty surrounding Aubameyang. If we can’t compete for top talents because of the way the market is, we need to be trying to hold on to the exceptional young talents we have.
  7. Palmieri

    Numbers don’t add up though; if Palmieri has a release clause of £25m, are we valuing Dzeko at £40m? Transfer spending has been a shambles. You don’t potentially spend £250m on new players and have no real quality to point out.
  8. Wonder why people are sticking Hazard in the forward role. He has been awful in that role; all huff & puff, not clinical enough. For all Bats criticism, he would have buried one of the 3 chances Morata fluffed yesterday. Against bottom/mid-table teams who sit deep is where you play your box player.
  9. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Therein lies Conte’s problem; he is setting the team up not to lose games but not necessarily to win.
  10. Hit the back of the next 6 times today, we should be good on the weekend.
  11. He is the problem though, or does he need better players to beat a championship team again? why do we need 3 CBs / 5 defenders against such an opposition?
  12. Andy Carroll - Football has gone mad

    I feel we have set ourselves up for at least 3 seasons of mediocrity with our signings this season. I don’t think anyone imagined we will sign 6 new players, but we have and we might end up at 8 signings in one season. The big problem is we haven’t improved the squad, just bulked up our numbers. The board & Conte are equally responsible in my opinion. You have a manager using every press conference to moan about a lack of signings, and matching City’s spending in the transfer window. Guess what? We have made loads of signings now and on course to outspend City but look miles away from them. Our transfer strategy and approach has been all wrong, and you can’t help but wonder if we would have been better off retaining and actually giving more game time to Chalobah/Ake/RLC/Musonda, and making only 4 top signings. Conte has a big part to play in the whole disarray. He had 4/5 youth players in the squad last season, and either gave them little or no game time. Take RLC for example, he kept on playing him as a second forward which made no sense whatsoever. He recalled Ake from his loan spell and then gave him very limited game time.
  13. Leon Bailey

    Overrated how? He is probably up for young player of the year in the Bundesliga. 6 goals & 4 assists in 15 league games is a very good return.
  14. Alexis Sanchez

    There are more sensible options in the market, but we just seem not to be trying. Leon Bailey is available for £35m & wants a move. Malcolm is available for £40m & rumoured to be Arsenal’s Sanchez replacement. Why not get the pair, and let Pedro fill in as an option to Morata. With the rate at which both Bailey & Malcolm are developing, you won’t be able to buy them for £50m each come summer.
