  1. NoPace replied to the thread Dani Ceballos - loan to Arsenal from RM.

    I was sure Denis Suarez was a terrible fit for the Prem because of his mediocre quickness and I think Ceballos is the opposite and will have a solid overall season.

  2. NoPace replied to the thread Bruno Fernandes.

    Ah my bad. He has the same lack of top end pace as Depay but he's definitely smarter, I think he'd give us a 7.5/10 season at RW and right now I'm expecting a 6/10

  3. NoPace replied to the thread 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs.

    This is sort of dumb because who knows if it will repeat itself, but my feeling based on last year is that losing Rose would hurt you in the CL but not bother you in the league really. His class meant he could play the ball cleverly against the...

  4. NoPace replied to the thread 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs.

    I don't know why people are overcomplicating things or think that most wide players peak at 28 and decline at 32 when there is no evidence for it whatsoever. Center backs, target men, DM and keepers peak closer to 27 or even 28 , but the wide and...

  5. NoPace replied to the thread Nicolas Pepe- Lille.

    How so? James is a backup winger that can hopefully develop into a starter and Mata, who can't play out wide anymore, appears to be the alternative option to Lingard as a 10 since one can press and run but not pick a pass and the other can play...

  6. NoPace replied to the thread Aaron Wall-Bissaka | 2019/20 Performances.

    This is correct. Hargreaves was a much better passer than Wan-Bissaka, had a more reliable first touch in tight spaces too. No comparison here. Wan-Bissaka is a RB who will get to do a lot of ball-winning since we appear to basically be...

    I mean even as a ball winner, he's just too erratic a passer at the moment.

  8. NoPace replied to the thread Harry MAGUIRE | Still no proper updates l Chris Smalling bashing thread.

    I would have probably spent the money on the 10, DM and RW we need, but it'll be nice to have an actual threat at set pieces and Maguire's biggest flaw is his intelligence/awareness issues and a lot of CBs do tend to improve on that score in...

  9. NoPace replied to the thread Tahith Chong | 2019/20 Performances.

    This is fair but I also think the Champo is becoming a bit less of a 1970s New York movie where everyone is killing each other. Also I forgot Chong was Dutch, obviously a midtable Eredivisie loan makes more sense.

  10. NoPace replied to the thread Aaron Wall-Bissaka | 2019/20 Performances.

    His passing is nowhere near good enough to excel in that role.

  12. NoPace replied to the thread Diogo Dalot | 2019/20 Performances.

    He's gotta outright pass Young as the backup LB this year, getting something like 10 starts at RB when Wan-Bissaka rests or is suspended or a Europa league group game that doesn't matter much (and half in the domestic cups I'd guess) and another...

  13. NoPace replied to the thread Tahith Chong | 2019/20 Performances.

    I think with Martial, Rashford and James all comfortable at left-wing we might as well let him get 40 starts in the Champo for some team with nothing at LW.

  14. NoPace replied to the thread Axel Tuanzebe | 2019/20 Performances.

    Ole having us press suits him since he's a good athlete and not great at defending deep against crosses. Looks comfortable mopping up the long balls hit into channels in an attempt to bypass the press (as do Jones and Bailly, maybe less so for...

  15. NoPace replied to the thread Jesse Lingard | 2019/20 Performances.

    That's fine in theory but in practice if we're going to accommodate playing with a 10 and Martial and Rashford are going to get 20 goals, our needs to do those AND be able to pick someone on the counter with the right ball. I'm not sure it's...
