    Haha I didn't realise I had. Just rubbish at tech
  • SamoyedSam replied to the thread Gabriel (Lille player).
    There's a trend of top clubs signing centre backs to able to switch to 3 when needed. It seems to be the in thing. Shaw did a reasonable job when asked this season but Magalhaes is a specialist and looks a good prospect, strong in the tackle and...
  • SamoyedSam replied to the thread Left full back 2020.
    Walker, Mendy, Zinchenko and Cancelo can all overlap and all play on the correct side. I rate Williams but he's a right back playing on the left.
  • SamoyedSam replied to the thread Left full back 2020.
    What we've seen in the last few games is teams working out how to play against United. They crowd the middle, knowing that the wide forwards and full backs cut inside a lot. It doesn't work against Liverpool because Robertson and Alexander-Arnold...
  • Sancho is a must but a left back rather than a centre back is a necessity in my opinion. Williams is a right back. The trouble with playing him and Rashford on the left is they both cut inside and the attacks stall. A fast, left footed full back...
  • SamoyedSam replied to the thread Harry Kane.
    He's still the best striker in England in my opinion. Injuries have hindered him recently and playing in a Spurs team which is in transition/decline hasn't helped, but he's a class act. He's been overplayed with England and Spurs and given...
  • SamoyedSam replied to the thread Kai Havertz.
    He's the ideal replacement for Muller at Bayern. As good as he is, I don't see where he fits at United. If Bayern get Sane and Havertz in the next 2 summer windows they will be an even tougher proposition in the Champions League.
  • Gomes needed a loan in the Championship to toughen up and develop physically. He didn't get it. Lamptey refused a contract at Chelsea to go and play at Brighton. Gomes needs to take a similar path. Marcus Edwards was a supremely talented kid and...
  • Sancho ticks so many boxes as he's not only capable on the right but also inside. He could easily play as an advanced central midfielder if he was needed to cover injuries. If Sancho is too expensive then Grealish offers similar but without the...
  • That's an interesting take on Sancho. I watched him extensively for England at youth level before he went to Dortmund and he always stood out. You are correct that he isn't as fast as a Hudson-Odoi or as powerful as a Rooney at that age but what...
