You played Sancho upfront right? I can do you a favour and swap Dzeko for him so you have a good back up striker?Technically it is a strikerless team as none of the players have F(C). Much prefer yours with Dzeko up top.
I understand the joke...The joke is his reserve side will be his first team in a couple seasons.
I’m still surprised you haven’t gone all out for Van Dijk, Koulibaly, Varane, Marquinhos etc.I'll be in trouble if Boateng is in my first team in a couple of seasons.

Alaba should be good enough as CB with Gaya at LB though.
Yeah probably something like that. A decent CB just to replace him in the backline, and then a worldclass CM like Pogba.Genuinely curious because people rarely ever publicly discuss offers etc. What would it take to lose VVD.
I’m assuming a young CB with potential plus for your side a top CM?
Or two young CBs and CM?
Thanks for responding. I’d agree that Pogba (or Kroos) + 90 rated Young CB would be fair. I remember way back when I first started SM some managers were absolutely stuck in the mentality that the end numbers should add up to one another.Yeah probably something like that. A decent CB just to replace him in the backline, and then a worldclass CM like Pogba.
In the past i’ve always thought that centre-backs are worth more because of how rare they are, but i’m not really sure anymore. Goals win games
I wish you were Villa managerThanks for responding. I’d agree that Pogba (or Kroos) + 90 rated Young CB would be fair.
It was only as recently as December 2018 that my back four wasA good one to look at is United (sorry Damien) undoubtedly an amazing squad:
TAA 92 Ramos 95 Alaba 93 Gaya 91
Very good defence but even one of the best in the league can only muster a 91 rated LB (or 91CB if you put Alaba there) so there’s always somewhere you can get a good striker to have a rating advantage.
So even my Cardiff can have an advantage over 3 of his back 4 (I know I won’t beat him) but you get the point.
I mean I’d probably reject the Kroos offer but if you said Pogba plus Dias/Zakaria...I wish you were Villa manager
It was only as recently as December 2018 that my back four was
Kimmich (92) Ramos (95) Boateng (94) Alaba (93)
Boateng's fall was rapid. Was already trying to get a replacement in for him before the plummet but no success.
And yes, defence doesn't really matter that much. I had the best defence at one point and barely won anything. Getting your attackers to score is key but Arsenal and Darlington are 10000x better offensively than me and on the whole don't win that many trophies so I dunno what the secret is to success despite having over twice as many trophies as the second most successful club in the league.
im not doing a 3 for 1 deal with 1 half decent player and the rest squad players, waste of time and why would i want to deal with selling squad players to make room for 2 more squad playersWho would you accept from his squad as a fair deal?
You wanted Sancho outright.im not doing a 3 for 1 deal with 1 half decent player and the rest squad players, waste of time and why would i want to deal with selling squad players to make room for 2 more squad players
thats all people seem to want to do
if im giving up a good player of value give me 1 back in a different position
or if you want to give an aging player throw in an elite prospect
its that simple
