  1. Indeed!
  2. Buying a new centre back doesn't automatically mean the demotion of Cahill, much as you and several others would wish it so. It's fairly clear from starting line-ups and substitutions that (going from left to right) our first choice trio is Cahill, Luiz & Azpilicueta with Aké, Terry & Zouma as the back ups. Zouma is not Cahill's back up, but Azpilicueta's. Terry is back up to Luiz, but no one else. With Terry leaving, next season we will require a back up for Luiz. That may be Christensen. If we are looking for a new centre back, it's more likely to be for the right hand side where Zouma's skill-set is not really suited to playing in a back three and Azpilicueta, for all the great defending he's done this season, is a few inches shorter than we'd like. If it's for the left, I can still see Cahill as a main starter with Azpilicuta as his back up and the new man starting where Cahill was this season. Cahill is far from being discarded.
  3. I think you've forgotten Hasselbaink and Crespo in that list.
  4. Fixed it for you.
  5. Indeed! And now he's been subbed I can see it was Hudson-Odoi and not "N'dou" ;-) And in goes a 5th!
  6. Great 3rd goal... I was screaming at N'dou (sorry not exactly sure about the spellig) to pass to Mount, but what a finish. Great 4th goal too from Dujon Sterling
  7. Also, as a defender, you don't always have to out-jump your man; just make it awkward for them to get their header on target. What I like about Aké is his composure. For a "little" guy he also has a decent leap and, more importantly, good positional sense and a better than average reading of the game. All he really needs is more game time for us in our system.
  8. I think you're wrong. We might not have the chest-thumping of JT or Drogba any more, but there is an inner strength and steely determination in this squad which is lacking in many other Premiership teams. That was shown on Saturday against a Spurs side who, currently, are playing some of the best football in the country and winning games with ease. We didn't play particularly well. We had our moments, but we were on the back foot for much of the game and I'm sure most neutrals believed, at 2-2, that Spurs would go on to win. But having taken the lead twice and been pegged back twice, did we meekly surrender to the inevitable?
  9. The worrying thing is that Tammy is quite similar to Michy in style. If Conte doesn't think Michy is a good fit for our (current) style of play, what hope for Tammy?
  10. Well deserved.
  11. I see JM was yet again wearing an unbranded (in terms of any Man U badges) coat today.
  12. I get the feeling Costa is committed to the club, his team-mates, the fans, etc., but is just having a poor run at the moment. The way he celebrated all our goals suggests he is still very much committed to the club and to winning trophies this season. However, I also feel that should another large offer come from elsewhere, he'll be off in the summer without even a backward glance. Maybe the offer from China in January has affected his form, but as he's never given us a full season yet it matters little. I'd be happy with giving Batshuayi another start against Southampton.
  13. I thought they both had decent games yesterday. Nathan was more involved as we were on the back foot for much of the time, but Michy was doing his best to occupy Spurs' 3 central defenders on his own, and made more attempts to get in the box in his 60 minutes than Costa has since January.
  14. Straight down the tunnel suggests an injury rather than tactical change
  15. About to come on now
