  1. Lille midweek then Bournemouth weekend.... The way we've been lately, im honestly fearing the worst for the UCL game
  2. He turned Laporte into one of the best CB's in the world and I think he has a fairly similar style (or at least did at one point) to AC. I agree with the 2017/18 season, but I think literally ever since the Barca game where he had a shocker, he's never recovered. I had high hopes for him at one point, but its been 2/3 years since and if he still hasn't improved I dont have the patience anymore. All of our CB's are literally at the same level, so as soon as you swap one out and put in another - the defence is still sh*t! We need a complete overhaul of the backline and I think kepa wou
  3. yeah I have no qualms about Pulisic in that regard. He needs to build a bit more muscle and be sturdier on his feet. He's nothing like Morata in the sense that he falls over easy and starting whinging to the ref and begs for fouls.
  4. They were both crap in all honesty, and definitely not good enough. Though saying that, I have this strange feeling that if Christensen was playing under a manager like Pep, he would suit that style and be very good. But for now, and for a while now he has been pretty sh*t. The Jan ban has been lifted, and as much as I would like us to sign Sancho, Dembele etc etc.. What we need more than anything is to sort out the pathetic defence.
  5. Kovacic was by far our best player, and I agree with Dan. Sign: Skrinier, Chilwell and Romagnoli, Atal Sell: Zouma, Christensen, Alonso, Emerson and Rudiger as well (Though hes still a maybe)
  6. Debateable, the last few games Zouma was playing better and Tomori looked suspect. At this current stage its still too early for him to be a guaranteed starter. he's on a similar level to Zouma when Zouma's at his best, and thats the problem because Zouma is crap in general. We need some world class CB's who will transform the team massively, like how VVD did to Liverpool.
  7. The defence is nothing short of garbage, Centerbacks especially. Zooma, Christensen, Tomori are all just not good enough. Zouma in particular was AWFUL today and Christensen was poor as well. Until we sign 1 or 2 world class CB's we are going to be a shambles at the back. James is the only decent defender we have right now, every single other option is poor, including Azpi.
  8. Looks like the honeymoon phase is coming to an end. Pretty good timing with the January window right around the corner.. We need some defensive signings ASAP. Just sign 2 world class CB's and sell off all the garbage we have off now, they have been given more than enough chances, aside from Tomori
  9. Sign Sancho and Ousmane Dembele, get rid of Pedro and Willian and we have 4 world class attacking players on our hands! Just throw in another top striker to compete with Tammy (or even overtake for the moment) and 2-3 signings in defence and we have a solid overall squad for several years to come, especially with the likes of our up and coming youth like Gallagher and Gilmour for example
  10. 1 blip doesnt define what they're capable of
  11. Bit harsh to say that about someone who's only 22, might just be a blip - but at his best he is undoubtedly one of the stars in world football.
  12. https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/10496986/chelsea-meet-with-dembele-agent-transfer-ban-ends/ Met with Demebele's agent, PSG and City also interested. Absolutely world class player, overshadowed by Messi but at his ripe old age of 22, he still has plenty of show. I have seen quite a few french people who actually rate him higher than Mbappe, or at least they did at one point. Doesnt even look to be too expensive of a signing, could be purchased for under 80m
  13. Funnily enough I agree. Reece James had him throwing the toys out the pram, definitely not good enough to be starting for us over Pulisic, CHO and Sancho
  14. Ban lifted, time to sign this guy ASAP - 90m lets goooooooo
  15. Some of the numbers and potential ruours im seeing in this thread are ridiculous, jesus christ.
  16. What makes you say that? When they're playing at their best, they can dominate almost anyone. That City game at the beginning they were all over them
  17. You not seen Kante in the past year? Haha he's a goal machine these days!! I do agree with what you're saying though, RLC is needed for the goal threat without a doubt
  18. Center Back: Incoming: World Class CB like Romagnoli/Koulibaly/Skrnier and maybe Ake as well Outgoing: Zouma, Rudiger, Christensen Left Back: Incoming: Chilwell? Not ideal, but can't really think of many other signings at the moment, 70m is very steep though. Emerson is a good backup option to have. Outgoing: Alonso. Center Midfield: Incoming: We don't need anyone coming in. Outgoing: Barkley Wingers: Incoming: Sancho, Neres, Ziyech (Not all 3, but if we can get Sancho + 1 of the other 2 that'll be perfect) Outgoing: Willian, Pedro F
  19. The buy list is pretty poor outside of Chilwell. But the sell list? What an atrocity it would be if we sold both Kante and CHO???? (Though I do agree on the other ones that need to be sold though)
  20. Midfield of Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic are arguably the best MF in world football when they are all playing at their best. And our other options such as RLC, Mount, Barkley with Gallagher and Gilmour coming up, we are sorted in this position for a long long time.
  21. Definitely a luxury signing if we do go for him, whilst he's definitely playing better than Barkley right now - I see Barkley's spot being taken by Gallagher sooner rather than later
  22. Can't see him getting a look in when Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic are all starting and firing on all cylinders. But I do see RLC as an obvious and massive upgrade on Mount though. Depending on the gameplan and formation, he could be huge for us, so glad to see him nearly back!
  23. Haven't played or bought a Fifa since Fifa 15 and don't watch all that much Youtube, so a big yikes there for you. Good logic picking 2 of VERY few players who actually turned out good because of it. And even then, they were loaned out to fairly big clubs in a top league where they got good game time, which I am perfectly fine with. So you've basically missed my point completely unless you see Sander Berge breaking into a top team and becoming a regular starter for them in a year, which is laughable
  24. Ship has sailed, won't make it now. Find a lower league team that'll buy him and lets offlload
  25. Sheer class this young guy. Would like to see him get a year in the prem next season - Maybe stick with Charlton if they get promoted (which looks incredibly unlikely atm) Just dont want him to join a soul sucking team like Burnley in the prem with Dyke in charge who will never give him a chance. I think Palace could be a great shout as it worked out very well for RLC, and I can see a similar path for Gallagher. After a solid season or 2 in the prem, he'll be more than ready to join us straight into the first team.
