    Pickford Coleman. Keane. Mina. Digne Gana Gomes Lookman. Walcott. Tosun. Richarlison. I would give this ago Lookman to replace Gylfi he has the ability to play there let’s see if he has the maturity. Richarlison goes to the left we know he can play there that’s where he started for us and was a success out there scoring 3 or 4 from that position, and if it wasn’t because of our strikers being so ineffective I believe he would still be out there. I would definitely keep Mina in he played well Sunday and not a lot to choose between him and Zouma, but we own Mina we know he’s staying so he needs to build up his game time with Keane to get that partnership solid for next season. I’ve gone for Tosun up front for 2 reasons firstly he has s good touch and that would work well with the players around him who like to keep the ball on the ground and quick movement of the ball, and then it could be a last chance saloon to prove he has got what it takes because the way things are looking for him he could be out the door.

    Cardiff offer so little in attack having 3 at the back would be a waste. I would rather we keep the formation that the players are used to. As for who is available we will have to see after the internationals. I want to see Lookman start, I would drop Theo rather than Bernard as both have been poor the last couple of games, although Theo was better in the last game vs Chelsea. I would keep Bernard as he needs more game time to adapt to the premier league.

    Maxi Gomez

    he is 6’1” tall, he looks medium to large build shoulder wise. If he is strong enough to cop with the league then by all means 35m is nothing these days. But if he is easily knocked off the ball, weak, or flops too much I don’t want him. Aspas scores at Will for Celta Vigo and he was a bust at the shite. The players that go from Spain to here need to have that physicality.

    I always thought that barm cake was a Manchester phrase for a bap, or am I getting misinformation from Coronation Street. I know were your coming from it’s got very toxic and not really about the player. What do you do if people don’t like each other they will fight in a thread that isn’t closed😒

    Gylfi Sigurðsson

    Yeh exactly that. Siggy plays really high up the pitch, I think it was the Utd game where he was the most advanced player in the team and that means he is up against CBs fighting for balls and then in this league, more than others, even if he is the deeper man he is up against 1 or 2 DMs that are generally more well known for their attitude than skill (certainly against Cardiff). Bernie has the ability but he has to get to grips with the English game and on the assumption that Silva would want to play a similar way, I fear he would just get manhandled out of the game. I expect him to get used to it though and deal with it better than he has so far and in games where he will get more space, I would expect him to do well.
  18. Already proven you have lied in the past. Quoted whatever you said I'd said and asked you to prove it. Still waiting till this day. So now you're a mod and trying to bully an apology, and more projection by saying I'm the one throwing boards. You truly are pathetic. Pretty sure the constant digs at me and the bullying of any one who disagrees with you deserves more of a ticking off. Already had the immigration discussion with you, so you can put your toys back in the pram.

    January Plans

    The way I see it is that Schneiderlin isnt quick and he isnt strong and nor is he that good at reading the game or good enough on the ball to be a realistic CL chasing midfielder. As much as I love McCarthy he has to prove he still has it and given how much football he has missed over the last 3 or so years I would be surprised. I hope he does though. Benni is way too early to be pinning any hopes on. He looked more like another Gana than another Gomes whereas I think we should be looking for a hybrid of them two plus a bit of McCarthy for good measure. Thats not a knock on either player btw. Finding that player isnt easy but its worth looking! 😀

    Lol. Even more reason to do the job properly then! Put it this way, if that was Coleman or Walcott he would get hammered for it.
  21. It certainly is, I put up a post several weeks ago with exact timings of when he'd done so in a match (I forget which one) but it was ignored by the hate brigade because it was an inconvenient truth. This thread is plumbing the depths, makes the Lukaku thread seem like civilised debate. Please stop it before my head explodes.

    I was called Billy Bullshitter by a troll who has since been banned. His reason for it was pretty clear if you have any understanding how the mind of a troll works (I'm guessing you do).... Maybe my stories of familiarity with certain ex players and having conversations with them or anything else that could appear as being boastful caused that. So you are saying I'm racist but don't realise it? That I'm anti-immigration? I'll be honest ... I'm saying right now you apologise and retract that comment or I'll be taking this to the mods to deal with. Not a PM... you do it right here you fuckin gobshite. As for the other points.... you proved none. Liar - non. Trump - you decided to use it to create a further lie and accuse me of being racist. Just your typical throw the board up in the air tactic when cornered. Backfired. You get a warning and apologise or I go. Simple. I'll await the mods response.

    Just checked, we’re joint 8th for goals conceded. There are even teams above who have conceded more. Ye, we’re not not shipping goals.
  25. Go on the Premier League App and look at the player stats comparison tool and select Gana vs Kante - there’s actually not a lot in it in any department. I’m sure Gana doesn’t play forward passes is another ToffeeTalk myth.

    Shipping goals is conceding PeteO, not clean sheets? I’m not getting where your going to be honest.
  27. We're still shipping goals! People let him off with the Fulham game because we never conceded. Yet they could've had at least 2 thanks to Gana being out of position.

    Gana actually scores a few goals though doesn’t he? All from shots. Ok he’s not as gifted in that department as Siggy for example, but he’s far from awful. But your right, I don’t think anyone would rely on him for goals, but there are worse players who shoot on the team than him. If Gana was truly an awful player, then wouldn’t he bring his teammate down... rather than look better with them? Maybe that’s evidence to how bad Morgan was alongside him. PeteO has just pointed out that watching Gana last season was the reason we were shipping goals. But he’s still in the team now? Palfy pointed out that he can’t perform against the big boys, but then he puts in an average performance against Utd, and an excellent performance against Chelsea. I think the next few matches with important players missing is more of an opportunity to blame Gana for anything g that goes wrong, rather than see if he can step up and fill the obvious gaps.
