  1. Andrea Belotti

    The idea of Morata and Belotti with Hazard behind sounds deadly, very much like a Tevez and Aguero partnership. Though the idea of us spending 100m euros on one player sounds bonkers judging on our eagerness this window. I really think we will spend wisely and bulk the squad up rather than spending a lot of money on Belotti. If Bats left however, it could make it interesting. Think there's like a 10% chance of this happening.
  2. I wouldn't put it past us making a bid for Llorente come the end of the window. He offers something different.
  3. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I have a hard time believing this when he started on friday for them.
  4. Danny Rose

    If he does some how end up at Utd, I wouldnt mind putting a bid in for Luke Shaw. Sure he has his problems but it feels like Jose is not a great manager for dealing with those problems. New surroundings could do him good. Utd have some quality players who are not guaranteed starters. They took Mata and Matic from us, we should take Shaw from them. Still boggles my mind that nobody has been in for Martial also when he's behind Lingaard and Rashford in the pecking order.
  5. Barkley

    Personally think he could be a very versatile player for us. He could play on either wing and also allow us to change to 352 and maybe just provide competition for Fabregas. I'd prefer this signing over Drinkwater.
  6. Barkley

    Apparently available for 25million, we should be all over that. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/08/09/ross-barkley-could-go-25m-spurs-face-chelsea-threat-evertonmidfielder/
  7. Virgil Van Dijk

    If we really want him then we should offer them what they want with Christensen on loan, they get money to reinvest and a good centre back to cover them for a year. Though I think we have enough cover at CB and we should be investing in players at wing back and midfield. It looks like to me that we could end up with Danny Drinkwater and wing back cover who's not Alex Sandro at the end of this window. Who knows if that will disappoint Conte but apparently its him who wants Drinkwater, it may disappoint some fans but Drinkwater will be Chalobah cover. It's just do we need to spend that much money on that sort of cover when we have youth. Personally I think we should use our youth as depth and go all out on 2 quality world class targets.
  8. Virgil Van Dijk

    He mentions top clubs and the rumour going round is that Southampton don't want to sell to Liverpool. I think we are in the running as we've been linked strongly a couple of days ago.
  9. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I don't think it has nothing to do with players rejecting Conte. Unless they are at a big club then they won't need much convincing. This boils down to the board, we are haggling over fees and we are reluctantly spending money on Contes targets. His frustration is pretty clear and If we don't back him then there's a good chance we regret it like we did with Jose. We can't go signing the Papy Djilobodji's of this world and expect to be a champions league challenging club every year, we need to add 1 or 2 players of quality improvement every season. Conte has obviously targeted areas he wants to improve and I honestly think the board come back to him with other 'cheaper' targets they have scouted long before Conte. I wouldn't be surprised under Jose the board said to him, ok we won't go over 50 for John Stones but we can offer you Djilobodji for 8 and Jose refused for a period of time until he had no choice but to give in. I'm speculating of course but if feels like that goes on behind the scenes.
  10. Barkley

    I think bringing in Barkley would be sensible from our part. He's talented, english and has his best years ahead of him. Bringing in both Barkley and Ox would be good business for us. Barkley for me could be a better player than Oscar was for us and having him compete with Cesc for that position would create strong depth there.
  11. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Ac Milan looks like it could be happening for him according to Sky Italia.
  12. Matic

    I think its mind blowing that we are 2 weeks away from the beginning of the season and we are weaker. Who knows if Morata is an upgrade on Diego, who knows if Bakayoko is an upgrade on Matic. Is Rudiger an upgrade on an experienced Terry and is Christensen an upgrade on Zouma. We've riskely replaced some of our key players but we've lost all our depth in the process and we have more games to play. Something must be going on in the background, It feels incredibly hard to believe that we've sold Matic to a rival without having reinforcements lined up. The only positive out of pre-season I can see is that Michy has found some hunger and he could have a breakout season.
  13. Alvaro Morata

    Very happy with this signing, looking forward to what he can do. I fully expect him and Michy to get alot of games between them next season.
  14. Sergio Aguero

    He is not old, my whole point with this is we've got a history of spending money on strikers with similar attributes with no re-sale value. I am all up for signing Aguero but I think we are better off investing in a younger talent like Morata or Belotti. Someone who will give us our best bang for our buck in the long term, I am surprised the board are considering this with the past Torres and Sheva deals. Both of those still looked like world beaters before they signed for us. We should of signed Aguero when City signed him and if Morata signs for Milan now. 5 years down the line are we going to be bidding on him? Take a chance on someone upcoming. However when it's all said and done I don't think City would sell him to us.
  15. Sergio Aguero

    I have no problem with signing him and he could do good for us, I just believe we have a history of these type of transfers. I'd argue he's had his prime years at City as he started very very young. Wasn't he playing competitive football in Argentina at 16?
