  1. Kante is prone to injuries this days. Nobody can bet on him being available for the top games that can define a season. And one thing I noticed this season is, once he is missing for a top game, you can never come up with a trio that will feels you with confidence when playing against a top team. The best we can come up with is Jorginho-Kovacic-Mount. You will agree that midfield can do the job against average teams. But against the top teams, that midfield will always struggle. We need a statement signing there!
  2. We don't need Pjanic. Would happily give them Jorginho for 45m and get a better replacement in Ndidi. Kante and Ndidi in the midfield will seriously improve us defensively considering all the easy goals we conceded this season especially at home against weaker teams that costs us maximum points. It also also automatically upgrades our midfield to one of the best in Europe regardless of who plays ahead of them between Mount and RLC. In a dreamworld, Debrune will be amazing.
  3. I haven't been impressed with Kepa this season, but Onana is never an upgrade to Kepa, if we are to get a new keeper, we should be going for someone much better than what we already have. I will suggest Leno or Dean Henderson. I like Oblak, but he is getting old and will come at a huge cost, Donarruma isn't as consistent as well!
  4. Now I have a new favourite player. I really love this kid. He looks like a new signing with lots of potential. I think this transfer ban is a blessing in disguise.
  5. I will take Lacazette over Aubameyang too. The guy is underrated though.

  7. Seriously? He always a better player than Morata. And trust me, Lukaku would have fit in better here in Conte's team than at United.
  8. I used to believe Morata was Conte's first choice for us because they both worked together at Juventus. But after seeing how desperate Inter are to get Lukaku after signing a deal with Conte, I have come to the same conclusion. Conte actually wanted Lukaku, but our board were reluctant to make the deal happen so we ended up with sh*t Morata.
  9. I think lots of people underrate Tottenham and especially Pochettino a lot which is funny. From my own perspective though, if they somehow manage to keep Pochettino, even without bringing in any new player, I can't see them finishing out of the top four and thus playing in the Europa league. That guy sure knows how to manage an average team. Apart from Conte, Klopp and Pochettino himself, I can't see any other manager out there who could have led that sh*t Tottenham team to a champions league final.
  10. 5th or 6th. But if we finished 4th in our champions league group and this get eliminated in the champions league group stages and we also avoid playing in the Europa league, I can see us managing to finish 4th.
  11. I won't sign him for 80m except our manager feels he fits his system of play.
  12. I will love to see us replace Hazard with Dybala too. But if we will like to play him as a center forward, he will quickly turns out to be flop in the EPL. He is more known for his creativity than his scoring prowess.
  13. I didn't ignore it, I later answered it in my response to @Bisright. But don't worry, I will come again. Brozovic and Naingollan, you said they never wanted to leave Serie A! That's really funny isn't it. You know what, if Juventus weren't desperate to sign C Ronaldo, he will still be playing for Real Madrid right now. Juventus knew he was having some issues with the Madrid board and despite that they still showed there desperation by bringing out the cash to convince him to join them. If they were reluctant and couldn't agree to maybe pay his wages, the deal never would have happened and at the end of the day you would have thought 'Oh, the deal didn't materialize don't want to leave La liga due to the rivalry between Madrid and Barcelona or between Ronaldo and Messi'. Pathetic! Isn't it? The point is, all those players Conte wanted us to sign but we missed out on were due to the fact that our board were reluctant to invest in the team. And I feel if Conte never won the league in his first season but he simply kept us in the top 4, like maybe we finished 3rd or 4th on the table, our board would want an improvement in his second season so they definitely would have spend the cash in his second season and sign players that fits his pattern of play. And in turn, they will likely set a target for him to win the league or the champions league.
