    The shit he'd get if he played for us would be on a Lingard level.

    I haven't seen anything from Maddison to suggest he's good enough for a better side than Leicester

    In truth he's normally a great decision maker, as we saw there were plenty of times when he did make the right decision hence created some dangerous situations. Hes like an old school second striker imo without the requisite great movement. imo the system doesn't suit him all that much. Put him in the Leicester side that won the title i think he'd have been amazing.

    It's not his fault that Vardy was in an offside position in almost all of those attacks.

    Vardy was offside because Maddison didn't play the pass in time

    Great talent but I hope he improves his decision making and becomes less selfish on the ball before we decide to go after him

    Would take him as our no 10 right now. So much better than Lingard, Mata and Perrera. Fits in with our young British transfer mindset as well which I agree with is the right way to go to steady the ship and get us moving in the right direction.

    I’ve no doubt he would he would be an assist machine for top team.

    How much would he cost though, £50-60m?

    Would be over £80 million unless he runs his contract down.

    This.

    People are just too desperate to get someone in to replace Lingard.

    He has great qualities but can be a bit wasteful. Not completely sold on him tbh.

    I'm almost certain Solksjaer will target him next.....

    Angel Gomes is gonna develop into our #10 which means I dont see us ever signing him.

    Aside from his corner, he was very wasteful in the final third and took too many touches when the margins were tight. Talented though for sure. Chelsea was very open again at the back and in between their lines which made it easy for him to position himself on the half turn in the channels.

    He's clearly a second striker and/or CAM with the freedom to roam about.

    if Choudhury was a number 10 or attacking Cm maybe but your analogy falls flat there.

    But as many of our fans said, we had already signed Maguire's replacement, Soyuncu has slotted in nicely

    Only watched the first half and thought he was poor, so must have been pretty great during 2nd with all the accolades.

    He'll be Pogba's replacement and I reckon he won't do too bad in that 10 role
    Needs to improve his decision making though

    Talented and technical. Awful decision making and end product in open play. Would fit perfectly at Arsenal. Not someone we should be looking at

    He wasn’t much better in the second.

    Missed a sitter and constantly waited too long to play the pass, Chelsea were wide open in the second half Leicester should have scored 2-3 easily.

    Fair enough. Anyway, I think Hamza is a good player.

    My impression about Maddison is that he s a bit of a Hollywood pass type of player. Prefers to be fancy rather than practical at times

    He'll have replace NDidi by the end of next season, he's far better on the ball but can do all the defensive work too

    To be fair, Jesse Lingard (good squad option he might be) doesnt have the quality that would frighten the very best. Would Klopp/ Pep consider putting him in their 1st elevens?

    This isn’t the game to draw conclusions about Maddison. He’s usually much tidier than this. His pass completion is alway high for a player of his type but today it was well off his usual standards.

    I like him a lot. He’s got a rare combination of high work rate with great technique. Very good at finding space and is difficult to pick up even from wide positions.

    He won’t be cheap.

    I didn't say Lingard was good enough for our first team, but we shouldn't just open to anyone coming in simply because this player would be an upgrade on him as that wouldn't be exactly hard to find is it?

    I think he’s excellent.

    He’d walk into our side.

    He's tidy and creative and has good technique. But I think we've got past the days when an English player who ticked those boxes was an instant must-have. He's not top-drawer quality, for me, and I'd rather spend time and money looking for the positions we're weakest in, notably DM, and give chances to someone like Gomes who is already here and whose ceiling could be so much higher.

    Angel is more of a Bernardo Silva though while Maddison is more of a De Bruyne. Different types of players but in principle I agree Angel potentially is on another orbit to Maddison

    Good player but would be an absolute rip off at the price you would get him at. Need to forget about him and discover a similar talent. Another we should have targeted a move earlier, while at Norwich
