    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    As usual I am missing the point? I haven’t read beyond that sentence, nor will I. I am not going to lower myself to engaging with someone incapable of debating a point without resorting to petty insults. That’s the end of this interaction, good day.

    That’s not funny.

    I wouldn’t play either in a cm2, but both could easily play in a 3 with a pure anchor behind them. Did you ever foresee De Bruyne and Silva in central midfield?

    This has been the model since 2004 when Arnessn joined. It has taken us from 14th that season, to now regulars in the top 4 (we’d never even finished top 6 until 2006). It has allowed us to grow and improve consistently without having the same spend as our rivals because we aren’t as rich. I...

    Replacing Rose shouldn’t be massively hard, any quick left back with a bit of fight will be an improvement so long as they actually want to be here. Rose doesn’t and his performances reflect as much. He just isn’t the player of 2016 anymore. Replacing Toby the player is very hard, impossible...

    A 433 with Dier / Wanyama anchoring and Eriksen-Dele combo is something I’ve wanted for ages but I just don’t think it’ll happen. Eriksen and Dele both get more space to attack, to create, to interchange, while they both do more than enough running for it too, but that’s more a Guardiola thing...

    Arsenal

    Load of cobblers. When he signed Vieira in 96, aged 20, Vieira had flopped massively at Milan. The fee was £3.5m. For context, we spent £750k more on Ruel Fox a year previously. He bought Petit in 97 for £2.5m. Half a season later we spent the same fee on Mousa Saïb. Wenger also bought Anelka...

    I call this formation ‘fuck it’: Lloris Alderweireld Sanchez Vertonghen Moura ______________________________ Son Dier Dembele Eriksen ________________ Dele Kane

    PFA Team of the Year

    Should have Fernandinho instead of Aguero, with Eriksen out left and Fernandinho at DM. Every member of City’s midfield 3 should be there, Aguero only plays down the middle and Eriksen has played all across the AM positions.

    People need to stop being so little England about things. You’re a young man in real world sense (even if old for a footballer), you have a few years left in your career, if someone’s going to offer you the money to also experience a new culture, way of life, adventure. China and India are...

    @Bus-Conductor have you seen much of Ellyes Skhiri? Only watched him a couple of times but seems a composed player. Also while you’re at it, Benjamin Andre? I personally quite like Manu Trigueros. Probably not a sexy enough name for some of you but a good, incisive player from midfield who...

    Race for the Top 4 - 2017/18

    4 eminently winnable matches (3 at home and one away to the league’s worst side by far), our two rivals either side of us playing each other, 5 points clear of Chelsea, 2 begins Liverpool.... I think this fortuitous situation is the main reason I’m shitting myself :banghead::ROFLMAO::sick::bored:

    Lewis Cook has impressed me again tonight, quick passing, forward thinking and incisive, can carry the ball at pace but also sturdy enough when necesssary. Looks like the player we want Winks to be.

    Oh I’m not judging you at all, you have an opinion and you’re passionate about it, fair play to you. I just found that sequence amusing.
