  1. 5th if I'm optimistic. Liverpool to win the league, City 2nd, Spurs 3rd if they sign Lo Celso/Ndombele... West Ham 4th I think Liverpool, City and Spurs will open a gap and we'll be fighting for 4th with West Ham and Arsenal. Utd to finish 8th.
  2. Won't hear me complaining if it's Super Frank. However, I think it's at least a year too early. Personally I think Lampard needs to adapt to the challenges of a second season at Derby. I'd be happier with van Gaal.
  3. I think Atalanta have a buy option anyway but I wouldn't go as far to say Pasalic is deadwood personally. Scores goals, assists and helped Atalanta to an impressive 3rd this year. With possibly no Kovacic and RLC not fit for the start of the season he could make left centre mid his own if given a chance. Atalanta is a stepping stone to bigger things for him imho, if he kicks on from his "breakout season" it wouldn't surprise me if he's at Real Madrid in a few years. Omeruo I agree with.
  4. Whisper it quietly... I wouldn't rule out Louis van Gaal. Wouldn't be the worst decision the club has made either, IMHO.

  6. Perhaps that's the crux of it, Sarri is (albeit indirectly) issuing an ultimatum to the players - play or leave?
  7. 1. Sarri discredits the players 2. We buy Higuain 3. Sarri changes tactics, Higuain starts scoring goals, our form improves and we qualify for CL 4. Sarri is the lord and saviour! Except for one thing, the support of the players; if he's lost the dressing room he's a dead man walking.
  8. I guess the fundamental question is, does Roman trust Sarri at the helm to undertake a rebuild? Or does he go with someone he knows?
  9. One last hurrah with Jose until SFL takes over? Would things really be any worse than they seem to be at the mo?
  10. sorry for the post above - yet again i've been absolute dick and didn't THINK before posting.
  11. "I've seen no money for it, I ain't gonna lie. I've seen no money from the club"
  12. https://www.dcfc.co.uk/news/2019/01/southampton-3-2-2-5-derby-county-2 Mount's pen 7.29
  13. Mislintat would be some coup for us. Also, presenting English football's most "underated" homegrown player, rugby league's Jonathan Hogg.
