  • We should be looking to sign Davies and Kimmich from Bayern in the summer, as they both enter the last year of their contracts. Would be super if they would take Sancho in part exchange, or even Greenwood. Normally I wouldn’t dream of suggesting...
  • The thing with Klose isn’t that he was “meh”, because he was a very good player for most of his career, it’s that he holds the record for most World Cup goals scored ahead of a litany of truly great players. Compared to the names his record...
  • simonhch replied to the thread Option/replacement for Casemiro.
    The midfield hasn’t been a problem since Keane left. Come on now. 3 CL finals in 4 years from 2008 on, would say differently. Carrick and Scholes was a brilliant midfield. As was Carrick, Scholes and Hargreaves. And Carrick and Giggs. It’s been...
  • He’s so fecking good it’s ridiculous.
  • simonhch replied to the thread Post match vs Luton Town.
    Nerve wrenching stuff, but if we’d scored our clear cut chances on the break, we’d have been 3 or 4 up, easily. Profligacy made it much much closer than it should’ve been.

    Chelsea have been the better team by miles
  • Makes sense to sign the guy who signs Brighton’s players, rather than just signing all Brighton’s players.
  • He was fecking amazing for about half a season. Looked like prime Shearer plus bicycle kicks. Then dropped off the face of the earth. Similisr to Tony Yeboah. Who seemed to win goal of the month about 5 months in a row, then became shit.
  • I’m fairly sure the article is hinting more at his work ethos, methodology and attention to detail, rather than the value of his laptop. Otherwise a good old fashioned heist would do the job. A potential Guy Ritchie flick produced by Netflix...
  • I think you listed everything he does. Highly rated by all it seems.
  • Denis Irwin. Was rated in his time, but would be even more so now. Carlos Tévez, again rated in his time, but pressing from the front has only become more valuable. Andrey Kanchelskis, was good with either foot. Was a pure RW in his day but...
  • simonhch replied to the thread Kylian Mbappe.
    He’s going to Real, I’m sure. If they continue playing two up front it’ll be Vini and Mbappe, which is frankly ridiculous. With Rodrigo and Endrivk as rotation options. The oldest being 25/26. Absolutely sensational. Midfield options of...
  • I’d find it much easier to list players I consider world class that weren’t recognised as such. That said, I think David Alaba for one, has always been revered as world class but he never quite got there for me because I was never entirely sure...
  • simonhch replied to the thread Alessandro Del Piero.
    I was merely responding to the notion that he “didn’t accomplish much with the national team”. He won the World Cup with them, scoring in the semi final against Germany. I didn’t say he did more than Baggio or was a better player. I think Baggio...

    Del Piero won the World Cup with Italy in 2006.
