  1. I do think that Pulisic will come good and at least mostly justify his price tag. He’s so young and will adjust - he has the right mentality. At the same time, I can’t help but wonder what if we didn’t spend all that money on him in January? We’d be in the same position with the squad, essentially, but would have much more in the chest and the benefit of being able to have our pick of wingers that are available. I’m not so sure at this point that we will end up buying another winger, though I hope we do.
  2. Agree on both of your points, but I think Havertz could play out on the right.
  3. I didn’t realize Sancho was a Chelsea fan, doesn’t hurt our chances that. Though I think the only way we sign him is if it’s determined that Pulisic is not going to cut it. Which I’m sure won’t be the case. One name that that I would like to see us linked with is Kai Havertz from Leverkeusen. Kid looks like the real deal.
  4. Agreed. I've been harsh on Alonso, with good reason though, but he has been better this season. Perhaps he is the type of player now who needs a little competition to get himself in gear - seemed like he got mighty complacent previously.
  5. It seems to be ESPN that keeps harping on it, along with NBCSN, both American networks, so not surprising that they’ll go on and on about the most promising American player of our time while at one of the biggest clubs in England/the world. I’m not quite as in tune with what the English media has made of it - have they constantly harped on it as well?
  6. Why would Leicester sell him in January? Rags, indeed.
  7. I also like the look of Håland, and Osimhen did well in the game last week but that’s the only time I’ve seen him play, so unsure on him still.
  8. I can’t recall which thread it was in, but I wish I could find the posts where I went back and forth with a bloke who claimed top 4 was not possible after our draw with Leicester. We are certainly looking like a top 4 side and should only get better as the season goes on and we get our full squad back.
  9. Not that I would be opposed to signing Sancho - I think that would be an excellent signing - but I’d rather we went for someone like Steven Bergwijn or David Neres. They’ll be quite a bit cheaper, but with just as much potential as Sancho, in my opinion. Would leave room in the budget for a second world class signing. It does seem as though Man United have their sights set on Sancho, and I’m sure they would pay more. And ever since @RIP Mourinho brought him up recently, I’ve been partial to Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal. Hadn’t even heard his name before, but he looks like a real player. One theory I have though, is perhaps we won’t even sign another winger. The way Frank has been playing Mount on the wing, he might just stick with that. Would open up more minutes in the midfield with RLC coming back in the fold. Wingers: CHO, Pulisic, Mount, Pedro (wouldn’t be surprise if we bring him back for one more year) Midfield: RLC, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Barkley (though I would sell Barkley and play James as our 5th CM)
  10. He’s definitely played as a midfield 3 before, but it’s more of a no10 role. I don’t see him doing well in the role Barkley played yesterday. Pedro has been awful this year and I really think it’s only a matter of time before Pulisic jumps him on the depth chart.
  11. Same thoughts I had after hearing what he said. Glad he’s frustrated. He has the attitude to take that frustration and harness it into something good.
  12. Not much wrong at all, impressive display. Even the times where he allowed their attackers to get in behind on a run, his blistering pace allowed him to mop it up.
  13. Thought he played well today, just couldn’t get the ball in the net. Showed some impressive strength on multiple occasions. Can you imagine Morata handling the physicality that Tammy stood up to today? Refreshing to have a striker again who will battle.
