  • And Southampton paid £20m for Danny Ings... A transfer price does not reflect how good a player will be at the club, the demand and assumed ability of the player does. At least Joelinton came of two halfdecent seasons for Hoffenheim and he was an...
  • We could very well get around £5m for him, but the £20m mark being mentioned here is what I disagree with and what I meant by getting money for him. Maybe I should have been more specific. He cannot pass, control the ball etc. Is on a contract...
  • When did we start to think that we would get money for Lingard? Seriously?
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread Redcafe PL Awards.
    Player of the Year - De Bruyne Manager of the Year - Wilder Young Player of the Year (U-21) - Greenwood Worst Player - Kepa/Pickford Best Signing - Ings Worst Signing - Joelinton/Pepe/Iwobi Funniest Moment - Jordan Pickford in general. VAR Moment...
  • He has operated as the deep sitting midfielder as well. His abilities make him able to operate in most CDM and CM roles. Having 4 very capable midfield alternatives next season in PP, Matic, Bruno and Partey would make us so much more capable of...
  • While not directly related to PP and him playing high risk, our reliance on building up through the middle is making it easy for the opposition to have many players around PP and Matic and thus increasing the risk of them losing the ball. If we...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread What about our Tim?.
    Obviously yes. Head and shoulders above the rest.
  • Learn to progress the ball into the final third without going through the middle of the pitch every time. Improve the speed, accuracy and direction(as in not pass into a pressing trap) of the passing among the players involved in the build-up...
  • Bruno and PP are of the same ilk. They play high risk football. I just think that having midfielders that takes high risks in their own half is problematic, especially when considering some of our defenders and who the other midfielder is.
  • And he lost the ball a number of times as well. When he was our only creator (pre-Bruno) and played with two of Fred, McT and Matic around him, the risk associated with losing the ball was not as great as it is now with only Matic. And if we get...
  • When he played as the attacking minded midfielder as part of a trio, then playing high risk football is ok as he would have two midfielders behind him able to stop the counter after a ball loss. Now he only has Matic, which is not a mobile...
  • I think everyone agrees that AWB is among the best isolation defenders in the world. The first question is: Can a team that aims to dominate games do so by having a fullback that cannot make a sensible pass/action when on the ball regardless of...
  • He does not seem to consider the risk when making some of his passes or when he attempts to dribble out of press on our own half. Could look like he was more interested in creating clips for a highlight video than contributing to the team. Some...
  • You saw that Williams was caught in their pressing traps 10 times to day. His passing is sloppy as well. Made some bad passes/passing decisions in almost every game since he started playing in the EPL. Laird is certainly, on paper, the best...
