Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

Fucks sake, one world class attacker and our squad is in a great place all things considered.

 

Allison

Trent    Matip   VVD   Robbo

Fabinho Hendo

Thiago

Salah   Mbappe  Mane

 

Sub Options: Kelleher, Gomez, Konate, Tsimikas, Milner, Keita, Oxlaid, Elliot, Jota, Firmino

 

It doesn't have to be Mbappe (pie in the sky), but somebody legitimately world class (Haaland, Martinez, Dybala, etc.). If not that, somebody with a really high ceiling (David, Andre Silva, Andre Silva, Vlahovic, Leao) with Jota/Firmino as the starter in the formation above.

 

Ideally we need a CM too but we all know that aint happening. Just hope these cunts fund at least one fucking transfer.

Would you say Martinez and Dybala are legit world class?  Who are the two Andre Silva's?

He played for AC Milan, didn’t do much then moved to Bundesliga and has been doing well. People (me) call him the new Giovane Elber.

If standard chartered can fund the Taliban then they can fund this signing as a sweetener 

The fucking fines they pay, it would be cheaper to buy mbappe than funding the Taliban.

If we do manage to shift Origi last minute and go for this lad at West Ham, Moyes is going to have a field day playing the plucky, abused underdog fighting off an unscrupulous apex predator.

In the 4-3-3 with inverted wingers/forwards and overlapping fullbacks that we play, there's very few players better equipped to play the role than Firmino.

 

People putting Haaland, M'bappe etc in that central position (besides the fact it's not financially viable), can't have seen us play much the last few years, nevermind M'bappe or Haaland. 

 

Requirements to play as our no 9/false 9;

1.Ability to press/start the press

2.Off the ball movement, create space for the wingers and overlapping fullbacks 

3.Ability to hold the ball up/interplay with wingers and midfielders.

4.Finishing/movement in the box

5.Pace to threaten in behind for variation of play

 

While both Haaland and Mbappe are better at 3,4,5 than Firmino, they simply dont suit that role. If we were to buy one of those it would be at the expense of our current style of play or one of or both Mane/Salah.

 

I absolutely love our current set-up, and it will be extremely hard to replace the production of that front three. I think Jota has an important role as well, as he's able to do both Firmino's and especially Mane's job to a good level. He'll probably score more than Bobby in that role, but I think it will be at the expense of Salah's/Mane's goals.

 

Anyway, great to have all our key players fit again, the crowds roaring and to have made such a good start!

Why do we keep saying Firmino is the only one in the world suited for that role ? he has had Origi to compete with his whole career here. Im sure if Klopp had the chance to buy a real class player to compete with Firmino he would do it, he is even using Jota there and maybe Jota does not do all the flicks and no look goals (every 10 games) he is producing numbers Firmino could only dream of already pr minutes played.

Has Pearce turned up yet to dispell any more transfer rumours?

 

I bet that cunt takes great delight in standing outside supermarkets to tell shoppers there's no bog roll or bread.

 

Bad news merchant.

I agree Haaland and Mbappe wouldn't do anything like what Bobby does, but there's got to be someone who can do it better than Origi or Minamino.

Careful. You're getting a wee bit naughty there. He may have to give you a slap.

Both Mane and Salah excelled alongside a number nine. Yeah having someone like Bamford or Calvert-Lewin could result in our wide players scoring less, but there’s no reason to assume that as a collective we’d score less.

There may come a time when Jurgen decides to change the way we play. Let's just say Haaland was a possibility next summer then maybe we would change tactics to suit.

 

We're not going to have the same front three forever and maybe we won't find anyone to do that Firmino role well enough.

I saw him outside B&Q once during the pandemic where it was collection only. He took great delight in telling someone they couldn't just walk in and but something.

Hes a complete tosspot.

 

Never ever been a good journalist either, bog standard stuff. But he tows the line and does what he's told and takes great delight in his own importance.

I reckon Haaland would score 30 league goals easily for us. Salah would still get his fare share. There's way to tinker with things to incorporate top players. 

Haaland has a clause coming into effect in the winter, I read. Although would imagine if Spurs don't play ball City will nab him. Or Utd planning for post-cavani.

 

If they don't, for £60m we should be in there.
