Delph at the time made sense as he had just been at City and was versatile and a leader. He turned out to be a complete cnut and covid-loony though. The others, including Winks are distinctly average and I'm disappointed we want to spend c. 20m on him.
It's funny that they keep doing this
If he’s that good why is he agreeing to go warm City’s bench?Damn. I've liked Ortega since seeing him be a one man wall against Leverkusen.
Total style contrast to De Gea...a front foot, footballing keeper who touched the ball more than any keeper in Europe last year. Also registered the 4th highest 1v1 save percentage and statistically great shot stopper too.
Another really smart signing from City, while we get Bachmann who's good at pretty much nothing.
That was 20 years ago! Anyone having a moan because of rumoured 2nd choice GK targets really has lost their head.Tbh you’ve had very good keepers be backups at big clubs. That’s nothing new. Cudicini at Chelsea comes to mind. Guy was incredible before Czech signed and was good enough to start for most top clubs.
Had to be Lampard, didn't it? Couldn't scour any number of midfielders who are a lot better for half the price in Europe. Had to go for the distinctly average and British player.
I think Zaha might hold out for a top 6 club after destroying his chance for a move with his last contract.
Zaha's one of the players whose contract will expire next year. Also, Palace are currently in negotiations with Kouyaté. They want to offer only one-year contracts to players over 30, but Kouyaté wants a two-year one instead.
Kounde-Barcelona topic in Relevo.
- As of today Sevilla have NOT received any official offer.
- Yes, there have been contacts [from other clubs]: [a sale is the] definite objective of the club.
- Sevilla do not want deferred payments or creative formulas.
- Bordeaux would receive a 20% capital gain.
- Competition from Chelsea is an important factor: there is already an agreement with the player.
- Nothing imminent.
