    Marcos Alonso

    Just my opinion but I feel Ake plays better as a centre half (which is where he is playing at Bournemouth) than at LB. If we are going to sign someone to replace Alonso, there are better options out there... Emerson doesn't look the part unfortunately. Alonso's lack of pace and at times lapse in concentration is fine when he's playing at LWB but as others have said, he is now being targeted.
  2. Obvious post but we really need to learn how to kill off games...
  3. That's just foul number 600 by Stephens still no yellow card
  4. Feet work faster than his head
  5. How is that not a foul??

    Alvaro Morata

    I was really hoping to see Morata light up the league but I honestly feel the pressure of being a leading striker for a top team is too much to ask from him and unfortunately he's not really improving... His first touch is almost non-existent (at times), and for a pretty big lad, he's too easily bullied off of the ball. I can only imagine the mental toughness a Premier League striker has to have or any Premier League player for that matter. I guess it's highlighted more for strikers if they're not scoring but he just looks as if he has given up. As others have said, we need a new striker asap but who's really up for grabs without paying through the roof?..

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    THIS - spot on! Sarriball is an attacking brand of Football. Despite whether or not Kante's position has changed, his ROLE has changed dramatically to suit Sarri's tactics. Under Conte we played counter-attacking Football, Kante would generally sit deepest in the midfield and put pressure on the opposing team just about everywhere the pitch, would win the ball back, then move it on to a teammate. Under Sarri we obviously don't defend as much (where Kante is at his strongest) and is now being asked to play higher up the pitch in a more advanced position. I don't know what the answer is, do we tweak the formation? Who knows?... Hopefully Sarri...
  9. Sarriball revolves around Jorginho or in tonight's case - Cesc. It's not rocket science that if you shut that position down, you essentially have no Sarriball. This has been evident in our losses, only my concern is that we don't seem to have a plan B. Regardless of how much Jorginho or Cesc are man-marked out of the game, we seem to continue trying to play the same system by looking at building through those players. Couple that with an out of form Haz, Alonso has been trash, and the fact that we have 2 strikers that would be lucky to warm the bench in any of the other top 6, it's no surprise that we're losing to Wolverhampton. We can only hope Sarri looks at making some drastic changes against City otherwise we could be in for a trouncing.
  10. Wolves will be without Ruben Neves due to suspension (5 yellow cards) good news for us! Quality player
