    I doubt anyone will pay 40m for Rose. Anyway, Hercules said something about Rose not passing a medical in his current state.

    This referee certainly doesn't like giving out cards. At least Carvajals tackle on Rafinha was a definite yellow for me.

    Champions League 2017-18

    C'mon have some faith. Liverpool have been fantastic during the last part of the season yes but they have also played against Sevilla, Porta and Spartak Moscow, all ended in a draw. Not to mention the dip in form from time to time in the PL. RM nor Bayern will fold against Liverpool. Of course...

    Bayern Münchens eleven tonight has an average of age 30. Real Madrids eleven has an average age of 29. Just thought I'd put it out there. It takes time to build a winning squad and experience matters.

    You have a point but things have started to change the last couple of years though. All the money being thrown in to the EPL have started to close the gap between the football aristocracy (RM, Barca, Bayern etc...) and the english clubs. It was very notable this year with 5 english teams making...

    It's a worry I agree with you. But Arsenal have some major remodeling to do and possibly Chelsea as well. We've seen in the past, with ourselves as a glaring example, that it takes a few seasons to fully integrate a new host of players. I have no doubt in my mind that City and United once again...

    Yeah Firminho has been overshadowed by Salah insane form this season. But Firminho has been excellent. He scores with his feet, with his head, he links up play and what I'm most impressed about is his work rate. You can see him chasing down players in their own half and 20 seconds later he's...

    I hate to say it but Liverpool at the moment look world class. The pace, the trickery, the mentality. We are one of the few teams that have been able to nullify them. Liverpool hasn't played like this all season though. They have obviously hit their form at exactly the right moment (...in the...

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    It's absurd. How they can buy multiple players in one window for €60m+ and pay them twice what we do. In positions they aren't even in dire need of improving. I know, I'm stating the obvious. Sigh.

    Do you think Zaha wants to come to us? I'm not asking for ITK - just your personal opinion.

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    I feel like a major upside with Zaha is that he's familiar and experienced in the PL. As seen before it can take a whole season to acclimatize for a player who comes from La liga, Ligue 1 etc. Also as shown with City and Liverpool raw pace can be devastating and Zaha has an abundance of that...

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    I'm not saying it totally unlikely that Modric would like to keep playing competitively but I can see Modric just wanting to chill out in La Galaxy for a few seasons before retiring as well. He's already achieved legend status at RM and has won multiple trophies.

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    Dele is the exception that proves the rule. It's very rare that a player goes from the lower English leauges straight in to a top four starting eleven. Further more the sentiment on Sessegnon seems to be that he's main strengths are up front, he's even played LW for Fulham at times. I just...

    Players goes in and out of form. It happens. Unfortunately for Harry he had his dip at a pivotal time of the season. If Harry played like this in November most wouldn't think too much about it. Harry is unplayable when in form and naturally Pochettino, like any manager would do with their...

    Sounds like a good description of Arsenals current state.

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Our squad development stopped as I see it. We had a better first eleven last year with Walker still here and Toby and Rose fit. Contrary to that we did much better in the CL, despite being up against much better teams than last season. I'd say we stagnated in some aspects and improved in others...

    It's pivotal that we keep Eriksen. He's intrumental to how we play and among the best playmakers in the world in my opinion. Even if we get loads of money by selling him it will be nearly impossible to replace him. We don't have the stature or money to sign truly world class players. So for...

    Yeah, Sessegnon is a great talent, no doubt about that. But if we want a LB that will take us to the next level instantly I doubt Sessegnon is the answer. I can see a scenario where we sign Sessegnon: All Spurs fans are ecstatic Sessegnon does a few cameos in the league and some 90 minutes...

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    Yeah, too many changes in the first eleven might be to risky. I believe it's pivotal to get a good start next season at the new stadium. We didn't lose a single match last season at WHL. Might be hard to emulate that the first season in the new stadium but that is what we should be aiming for.
