  1. if he is to go soon, it's a real shame we waited until Poch was off the market - think he would have been great for this squad. I don't fancy another defensive Italian coach or that Tuchel chap. Probably prefer we wait until summer and push for Red Bull manager or Southampton's.
  2. Feels like a big one this. If we get embarrassed, I really worry that could be that with Frank! Pull out a win and it could turn the season around. Make no mistake though, the board will be getting very nervous about 1) how poor the new players/investments have settled in 2) missing out on the Champs League, while it doesn't really bother me too much, matters to the finances of this club
  3. Fail to win this and we are really starting to get cut adrift
  4. He's a good squad player for me, maybe starts big games when he's on a hot streak (like yesterday). We need players like him who love the club and provide competition. but looking forward to seeinf Werner up the middle with CHO or pulisic on the left against Leeds.
  5. too early to make any informed opinions really, but my main concern with Ziyech is that he tends to occupy quite similar positions on the pitch to Havertz. I understand signing Havertz was an opportunity we had to take - but I do wonder if we would have still signed Ziyech if Havertz had already been here. We really only appear to have genuine width from Pulisic and CHO (who Lamps doesn't seem to want to start). With Mount also being forced out wide, it does feel a little unbalanced to me. Means Reece and Chilwell will be very important.
  6. Yeah we’ve obviously had a great window, but fair to say arsenal and spurs have done far more than I anticipated. Could be a very interesting season. The big positive is we’ve signed young talent mostly so have a long time to build this squad up. Arsenal and spurs squads are more about the now with players at their peak.
  7. Poch on the market is looking pretty tempting right now! And in don’t enjoy saying that but frank and his team are just going backwards
  8. Feeling like one of those days already. Dominate and miss lots of chances. Let in silly goal or two. Yet Utd somehow get 3 points playing beyond terrible
  9. Would still love to replace willy with Ben Foster as well - would give us three options who are genuinely training to start first
  10. With the other key English players of his generation - Foden and Sancho and Greenwood - scoring goals and assisting regularly, feels like a big season for CHO. If he gets a few goals early in season he could really make a big jump. We need him while pulisic is out
  11. Well if he can dominate on crossing and set pieces, that will be worth a lot extra points imo. Can’t see how his shot stopping can be much worse either.
  12. I think the primary plan was to flog Jorginho to Juve and replace with Rice to give us more variety of styles. Unfortunately it’s a very difficult summer to ship out players for fair fees.
  13. I think he is known to be a bit streaky with his finishing at times. Scores a lot though so he must have excellent positioning and awareness
  14. I think Romero would be a starter for several premier league teams so I’d take him. People laugh about the likes of Ben foster being mentioned, but the truth is, there are very few keepers in prem or championship that would have been worse than kepa last year
  15. Looks like that Gabriel is off to arsenal. Wasn’t he on our list
  16. Same. Not saying he’s a bad player but just funny how he’s suddenly a difference maker over an experienced pro like Alonso in many peoples eyes.

    Nathan Ake

    Tend to agree with this. I like Ake as a player, but I think he would just be another solid-to-good CB - rather than the excellent and more dominating CB we clearly need. Question is, where do we get one of those!
  18. Rashford Greenwood sancho looks pretty good to me. Then again, so does pulisic Werner ziyech
  19. Sadly I think all their money is going on Sancho
  20. I’d take foster over kepa as tragic as that is
  21. I’ll admit it’s hard not to be excited about this guy, but can’t see how RLC and Mount get a look in now, which is a real shame.
