  1. Was hands down Bernard in the first half, ran everything and was very clean. Disappeared for most of the 2nd, is he that unfit? Nkounkou best performed across the whole 90. Honourable mentions to both Richy (well deserves a goal in the league) and Iwobi. Carlo is putting the pressure on them to perform. DCL didn't look on today and Gylfi was disappointing.
  2. Think Richy looked every bit as surly today and against West Brom (while putting in great shifts). To me it seems to be representative of players that aren't satisfied with performances (Kean) or outcome (Richy), not necessarily just "sulking". Even Gordon with him being desperate to score. Last week Kean knew he wasn't playing well and the penalty was a gift, from someone else's good work. Again tonight, he finished off a smart move from Digne and Nkounkou. It was a clean enough finish, but pretty much his only decent involvement. With Carlo and the new arrivals, the pressure h
  3. DCL was getting a hammy iced. Looked precautionary but still...
  4. Haven't watched any of the training vids for ages, but DCL's striking is looking a lot more clinical in the latest. Maybe he can add an improved (foot) finish into game time...
  5. Am I the only one that thought, outside the last 20 minutes and a nice ball for the first assist, Gylfi was fairly poor today? The whole midfield 3 were. Just far too negative when getting on the ball out of the back and then anywhere through the middle. All the industry was via the CBs or down the wings. Keane, Nkounkou, or Gordon best for mine.
  6. Yep, that's pretty much what I'd put out. Would swap Gibson in for Branthwaite (as Left sided CB), think game time is more important for him.
  7. Agree with the change sentiment, would go as much change as possible. Given who's been pushed to the bench and kids coming through, we have to trust we've got the quality and they've got the bottle to go out and win this. We also need to know that players are ready to step in when needed.
  8. Not for this year, but the kid looked to have some real quality control on him. Portuguese league players are never cheap though.
  9. Got 48 minutes for Italy, against Netherlands overnight. Looked to have a few chances and should have scored at the death (skied over open goal after beating keeper to a lose ball). Still needs to put it altogether, but promising to get decent national team time.
  10. Haven't had a chance to watch the stream yet. Anyone got any thoughts on Ellis Simms? Curious as to where he's at. Looked physically impressive on the highlights.
  11. Hope so. Good age to be an occasional backup. Looks a good size and speed, so don't think he'll be overpowered.
  12. The "paper talk" I was seeing was suggesting €20m outright or a 1 year loan-to-buy at €12m. Far more reasonable, particularly the loan-to-buy (as long as still optional after the year). They Need to shift his wages apparently. He's really come off the highs of his Ajax days. He's still a bit of "name" keeper, but is he any good?
  13. Tonali and Camavinga spring to mind. Plenty of decent targets in the 20 - 25 range.
  14. Too much. CM is the priority but really not sold on this one, and growing to despise Napoli. 30m in current market would be equivalent to what last year? 50? For a 29 yr old Bench player for them, who they want to shift (rift with club exec). Crazy.
