    I wouldn't say struggling. We've got 2 of our main targets which our rivals would have happily signed instead. Yes we haven't signed any defensive reinforcements but the window is still open and I'm confident we'll get someone

    Ayew? We still signing players just because they played well against us?
    No disrespect to him but we need to be aiming higher.

    We still had to make the largest bid. We were against at least 1 other epl team, 1 European team and 1 from China. £32mil is still a bargain for the best player on the epl last season

    Not everyone. Lucas Digne went for £13.8mil. Samuel Umtiti went for £21mil. Crazy bargains given the prices we'd be quoted

    If we don't do the "nananananananananananananananana Batman!" after every goal he scores, we are letting ourselves down.

    Totally, I was just making the point that we think the market is inflated but it is only for EPL clubs. Shows how we're perceived by other clubs/leagues.

    Rather spend €50mil on Koulibaly then £50mil on Stones.

    Would rather buy Michy for £33mil then Lukaku for the £60mil being reported.
    Yes, £33 mil is as much as we paid for Costa but look how mad the league has become for transfers. Big questions is what shirt number will he take?

    I understand what you're saying but if Conte wants to play a 3-5-2 then wouldn't it be better to play him centrally behind the 2 strikers? He's got great close control and a nice burst of acceleration so maybe it would be best for him. Just an idea.
    Good post though

    Agreed! Roman let Cech join Arsenal as a personal show of respect for his service to the club. This won't apply to Willian

    AndyBlue82 got a reaction from PedroMendez in Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager   
    I think the issue is that he's neither one or the other. IMO he should be left in the holding role, protecting the defence. When used a both (or neither depending on your view) has made him underwhelming this season.
    If we set up in a 433 next season he could easily be the holding MF in a midfield 3

    AndyBlue82 got a reaction from rtwelch in Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager   
    After reading up on Conte I was worried by the similarities to Jose. Surely the players don't want that kind of intense personality (especially as Guus I'd anything but) and the over analytical approach to each match.
    But I think the positives far out way any concerns I have:
    * tactically adaptive
    * tends to pick players on merit
    * gives youth a chance
    * breeds a culture of loyalty in a similar way to Jose
    * doesn't fall out with the media as often as José did.
    * astute in the transfer market.
    * could act as a pull for big name player such as Vidal & Bonnuci
    * is a strong enough personality that he won't be a Roman yes man
    I don't really follow Serie A but will be watching Italy closely at the Euros. I'm very positive about his appointment and think that he can create that culture that has given us so much success over the last decade.

    Costa will go if we sign a top class striker, Oscar and Hazard too. Cesc will stay as he's 50/50 to be Captain next season.
    I hope Guus gets an advisory role. Even if it's just as an ambassador rather then a DoF. Could the club create a role for him? Non executive agony Uncle? Lol
