  1. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Your boss though, has the capability to dismiss you. Conte is essentially just a higher-ranked employee at the club. And that is without factoring-in the supposed understanding by all parties concerned, that Costa would leave in January.
  2. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Bit of a stretch as it requires the plaintiff to prove intolerable work conditions. Not sure how that is possible from that text. Either way, his behaviour is disgusting.
  3. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    In that case why not let all the first team players dance around in their former clubs' shirts. At the very least it hampers the board in the current transfer negotiations...all disrespect aside.
  4. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Added to that - he was partying in an Atletico shirt. The man has no sense about him. Thank you Antonio.
  5. Alvaro Morata

    Possibly, but not likely. United tend to pay more simply they can (based on FFP) and teams know it. Not the same with us. Any higher and we may as well bid for Mbappe ourselves, forcing their hand.
  6. Alvaro Morata

    Well compared to the potential 100m+ for Lukaku, 90m for Belotti, it's quite... reasonable...
  7. Antonio Rudiger

    And more on the right for Roma. So not that obvious but yes he can play anywhere across the back really. His versatility must be a major factor.
  8. Antonio Rudiger

    Improvement in terms of style and being more suited to Cahill's position, yes. Not sure on class just yet. Azpi is quite perfect for his current position so I'm hoping rumours of us going in for Danilo start going into overdrive.
  9. Romelu Lukaku

    Would prefer it if we aimed a little higher to be honest...
  10. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    The only thing shocking about that is offering a considered opinion on something that 'apparently, may be, a recreation' of what was said, without context.
  11. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Bakayoko is still a big talent. But ultimately he offers what Matic does, though he is more of an athlete. As I've said, prefer someone who can do a bit of everything but weighted towards being great in the final third. We will be champions next season, so teams will shut up shop and we have more matches, and to see Hazard et al being supplied by Kante, Matic, Moses and Alonso is not good if you have aspirations to do well in Europe.
  12. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Agreed. Would love to see him here. Nainggolan offers more in the final third than someone like Bakayoko. Which is really what we need.
  13. Your dream summer window?

    Moses could very easily be benched. He has been mediocre for quite a while. Ideally with a 3 CB setup the 2 flanking ones should be adept at playing out wide. Azpilicueta is therefore perfect and Luiz would be great on the left. I'd still like us to sign a top midfielder (dream signing: Koke), top winger, RB/RWB and a usable backup striker. If Conte does not improve the quality of football, as soon as the results don't go his way I fear the board will once again be quick on the draw.
  14. César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    Mourinho was not lying about a team of 11 Azpilicuetas...
  15. The Nathan Ake Thread

    No the team as whole went off the boil and there were fabregas sized holes appearing all around him. He was still pretty solid. There was no masking anything during that period. His positioning and reading of the game was outstanding. And as I said previously, it was some of the best work I've seen. I honestly thought we'd have to wait quite a while for someone to reach those heights... and then came Kante.
