    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    I think Hudson Odoi is pretty decent, and still young enough to kick on. Pulisic is obviously much better though. Hudson Odoi is meant to be on £180k or something at Chelsea which rules him out of ever playing for us unless Chelsea feel like subsidising about half.

    Watkins has has a really good season but it's a big step up from the Championship to the Champions League. Can't remember the last time we signed someone with no Premier League or Champions League experience for the first team, don't think Joe Gomez was intended to go straight in and he was a lot younger than Watkins too.

    Stats wise, what does Robbo excel at now?

    Only way we get Sancho is if he runs his contract down and we sell Mane or Salah. If leaves Dortmund this summer he is 100% guaranteed to never play for us.

    Naby Keita - Stick or Twist

    He's been boss and he's going nowhere.
  7. Generous to Ox. Did well for the goal though.
  8. Good learning experience for Williams out there today. Aka. He's been shite.

    Zaha is really good, but relies hugely on his pace and strength. He's 27 now, how much longer can he keep those at elite levels? Also he'll be at the AFCON at the same time as Mane and Salah won't he?

    Not finding ardja too outlandish on Minamino here at least physically. Just looks a yard off it and doesn't protect the ball well enough when he has it. Needs to get on the squats and deadlifts over the summer.
  11. Bit of a cunt conceding on half time like that, decent performance otherwise.
  12. Fucking relentless isn't he, constant negativity

    Picking at the relegation carcass

    Sarr has loads of potential but he's so raw and inconsistent, not sure we'd be able to rely on him not being shit 50% of the time.

    He'd be shite as a number ten at this stage of his career. He's turned into a proper one trick pony these days, can only really play left wing and cut inside. He'd be better backup for Mané than what we currently have but £9m for a year of that, no thanks.

    Halve that loan fee, double his defensive work rate and we might consider it.

    Arsenal (A) Premier League - 15/7/20 - 20:15

    I'm absolutely fuming about last night. Reminded me so much of a late Rodgers / early Klopp era performance. We're fucking better than that shite Reds.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    There's no FFP in baseball either, they don't seem particularly bothered by that.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    The same Abramovich who wrote off about £200m that Chelsea owed him and funded their capture of Timo Werner?
  19. If you ignore the number on his shirt and look at how he actually plays he's not really a centre forward anyway. Mane and Salah play further up the pitch than he does. At times it looks more like we play a diamond 4-4-2 with really wide strikers and Bobby as the most hard pressing, non-play-making number ten there's ever been. Fits in with the sort of player he was at Hoffenheim too - he was never played as a striker there. Are there any players out there that are can lead a press for 90 minutes like he does, can swap between playing on the shoulder and between the lines like he does, can make space in tight areas like he does, *and* can offer more of a goal threat? Suarez at his peak maybe, but even he wouldn't have got through the defensive work Bobby does.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Seeing the CL draw makes me even more disappointed we had to play Adrian against Atleti. They got RB Leipzig, then the winner from Atalanta and PSG, who have barely kicked a ball in months.

    Jones doesn't strike me as having the work rate to be a Bobby replacement. Thought it was quite noticeable how much more joy Villa got attacking our right hand side after his goal the other day. Not writing him off at all, i think he'll develop a lot, but he's not really good enough for a regular PL slot in midfield yet let alone Bobby's role.

    Favourite non-Premier League team

    I know they're a twat of a club, but I've had some great times watching Barcelona, been to Camp Nou a few times over the years. It's enjoyable going to a footy stadium and not giving that much of a shit about the result, instead of being a hysterical fanny like I am at Anfield. Always helps if you get to watch Messi in full flow as well. Actually saw them lose 2-0 at home to Hercules CF years ago, it was fucking excellent.

    Aston Villa (H) Premier League 5/7/20 - 16:30

    Hard to keep up the intensity when the league's already won i guess.

    Thiago might take months to acclimatise. He wouldn't be the first 29 year old to struggle with the physicality of the Premier League.
