    Capoue is probably the one I rated the highest when they left, but Chadli would be the most useful in the current squad.

    Chadli. Thought he was good and has attributes we lack.

    Paulinho would be better in this side, and is clearly a better player now, though :notworthy:

    None.

    But if I had to choose one I'd bring Soldado back as Chirpy. He'd make a decent mascot imo; well liked, he loves the club etc.

    The only one I could see as actually being useful with our current squad would be Capoue. I could certainly see him playing ahead of Sissoko or even Dier (in current form) at CM while Wanyama and Dembele are injured.

    The irony is if we had bought them one by one season after season they most likely would have been successful

    No I disagree, my opinion is based on that, he'd of been massively shit if it wasn't for his ability to nick a goal or two but my opinion stays the same, he was too lightweight & inconsistant for me.

    Well I have to disagree.

    It's like saying Usain Bolt would be a shit athlete (sprinter) if he wasn't quick.

    Bringing it back to football tho...would Frank Lampard be a shit footballer too, if not for his goals and assists.

    Are you seriously using Bolt & Lampard to defend your opinion of Nacer Chadli? Wow, I’m gonna stop this chat now but must add there’s a reason he’s not here anymore and why he’s not a first teamer in a bang average team

    Im not defending anything. I was trying to use other points when judging people it only fair to incorporate all their good and bad points .

    I thought you discounted other important assets Chadli produced and just went on his size because of his size he should be xyz.


    Anyway enough said. Hope we win our next game COYS

    Chadli or Capoue, both decent players, and could cover a variety of our current first team. Would be useful bench additions ahead of the likes of TOB or GKN.

    It's not really because football isn't just about singularities, like sprinting in a straight line as fast as you can is, it's multifaceted. Defoe scored gaols but touched the ball 4 times a game therefore meaning that other 89.5 minutes of a game he contributed nothing to the team cause, including team defending or constructing other team goals scored by other people. There's a kind of notional tipping point where a player is so productive you can balance it off against his other deficiencies, like Ronaldo, or to a lesser extent at the "Spurs" level, Alli or Son, but Chadli never got close to that tipping for his deficiencies to outweigh his careless lazy bollocks.

    For the record, the only one I'd have back would be Capoue. Without the influence of the bomb squad, and if Poch could work on his mentality, and he would buckle down (all big if's) there's a damn good midfielder in there that can do a bit of everything.

    He was getting the occasional nod in the French team ahead of Schniederlin (similar roles) before Poch got hold of Schneiderlin and the situation briefly reversed before they both took career nosedives and disappeared completely from the international scene.

    they all had ability but never had the application that Poch requires. But i suppose id go Chadli if forced!

    I get your point and we effectively upgraded Chadli with Son however looking at our squad from the 7 I'd still take Chadli who could cover a number of attacking position.
