  1. United are a physically imposing side full of athletes, but Mata adds something they've desperately lacked since Giggs and Scholes departed. Guile. He's a clever player in the final third.
  2. ------------ Courtois ------------ Azpilicueta Terry Luiz Alonso ---------------Kante--------------- ----- Willian----------Mikel------- ------------- Hazard----------- Batshuaiyi-----------Costa------- Would require a lot of work from Kante/interchange with Mikel. Free role for Hazard without working the flanks
  3. Conte inherited an absolute mess, one that had cost Mourinho his job. The side lacks character collectively and characters individually. Without Terry (and sometimes Costa) the team often resembles a team of lemmings. If I blame Conte on this apparent disorder, I'd have to blame Mourinho too... Many of players at our disposal aren't fit to tie the laces of their predecessors....Lampard, Drogba, Riccy, Makelele et al...even Courtois has all of the talent of Cech but where is the bottle? An aging Terry must be tearing his hair out to what has become of this once (and not so long ago) ruthless club. We used to put teams to the sword at the Bridge. Away from home we'd soak up pressure, wait for our moment and pounce. We terrified the opponents...quick, lethal, clinical. Now we're the one's playing like rabbits caught in the headlights.
  4. I was thinking more carrier pigeon...The very fact Costa is under consideration is more of a reflection of the lack of leadership elsewhere in the team. Couldn't make matters any worse, could it?
  5. Sooner Zouma is back, the better. I just hope he comes back at his best, he'll need to be.
  6. In Terry's absence I'd give the armband to Costa.
  7. Haha!!!
  8. Would be a good option. Knows his way around the penalty area and could develop further here.
  9. Geezer is about to come back? Never a 5 out of 10, either an 8 or a 2... But loved the guy when he was here. Hated his defending sometimes but loved his passion.
  10. Unusual to see going forward and Mikel in the same sentence... :) I'll get my coat.
  11. Great post, 100% agree. How many times has the media poured petrol on the flames with the intent of damaging a Chelsea player, manager, title hopes etc.... We'll see how Jose is treated now that he occupies the hallowed ground of Old Trafford. Love Jose, just hope he remembers...
  12. To the tune of you can't stop the music You can't stop Batshuayi Nobody can stop Batshuayi When he's scoring a goal, or passing it to Pedro, Michy and Diego will let your team know that... (Repeat)
  13. A bit unsure about the players (know little about Brozovic and not seen enough of Alonso) but am heartened by the fact we are actually addressing these key areas. As such, (and going on the opinions of others more familiar with both Italian based players) am much happier with these 3 prospective signings rather than spunking a fortune on a Lukaku or a James Rodrigues. CB/FB is crucial.
  14. Mikel with a bag full of duty free?
  15. Thank Goodness... ...it's not Torres then
