Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

A lot of Barca’s problems will be solved by offloading Messi if they can. Absolutely. But according to the financials Messi brings in more revenue than he costs, so Barca are desperate to keep him. But therein lies another problem; paying monumental wages to players that are clearly past it. They'r...

Re: is rashford gonna make it then

Hope he doesn’t wreck his body by his mid-20s. Ole and Southgate taking advantage of his enthusiasm. He looked over worked. Tbf I dont think he was "gonna make it" anyway but sadly he'll probably struggle this year. Hopefully he'll use this time to look at his old games and build on his decision ma...

Re: Maguire

Martial seems a bit “temperamental”, or inconsistent, moody, or whatever the right term is. But so is Shaw. It’s just an individual thing. The French national team in recent memory had some upheavals due to racial politics. There was a blow-up at the WC some years back, Evra was involved. But that ...

Re: Maguire

There is this "quality" about French players. It's hard to explain. Perhaps they're more motivated in the international games, although I read otherwise this time, but they seem to be moody and seem to play in second gear in most games. Look at Griezmann, Giroud and Dembele for instance, apart from ...

Could it be the same as the 'French temperament' that Eric had?
One or maybe even two French players are manageable I guess. Not more. We're already struggling with Martial and Pogba.

Re: Maguire

He did have a good tournament. I do think Maguire and Varane could be a strong combination. Hopefully good enough that Ole won’t feel the need to usually play 2 DMs in front of them. Problem is Varane will bring his French temperament which plagued arsenal. What if he's not in the right mood on mat...

Re: Euros 2021

Can you elucidate on your brand value thesis a bit please dozer...I’m not quite getting it? You can call it star power then. Or media favourites. These players are higher up in the galactico scale. But the quality isn't as high up. Grealish, Sancho and Rashford are higher up in the galactico scale ...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

If we sold Pogba to someone like PSG a and got Camavinga instead, that would be a good bit of business for me. Pogba wants to go, got to let him go. Camavinga is a very talented player who seems a more natural holding midfielder, so he might actually suit us better, given how Ole likes to play. Cam...

Re: Euros 2021

Is Southgate a shit manager? He will be if he loses to Italy. He will be "tactically inept". Otherwise he's bought more time because of his low brand value. Oddly Sterling suffers from this too. Rashford and Grealish have a higher brand value. People here were saying Rashford was a top player but he...
