  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Falcao too.

    I said that but now realise it doesn't fit with the advice given to linos to keep their flag down if it's not clear-cut, allow play to develop and if there's a goal it'll be checked by VAR. Then you don't get an on-field opinion at all. I've no idea what happens if someone mildly offside wins a corner that the team scores from. Presumably the lino does nothing.

    What the manager wants and what is good for the club are not necessarily the same thing.

    Fabregas barely played and seemingly wasn't valued until a transfer was touted. Hudson-Odoi barely plays and suddenly becomes the future of the club when a transfer is touted. Emerson barely plays. Looks like his agent has woken up.
  5. That is based on an assumption that there will be rotation, of which there's been little recently.

    + Reece James + Mason Mount (ahead of Barkley) Christensen, Ampadu, RLC, CHO, Tammy, James and Mount in the same squad would be impressive and simultaneously unthinkable.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic Ideal solution if we're looking for back-up to Jorginho...

    I think we'll muddle through until the summer but next season I'd like to see: ST1: Icardi ST2: Tammy ST3: Giroud (1 year contract) Hopefully after managing to sell both Morata and Batshuayi...

    I thought it was already the case, given the wording, but last night made me think otherwise... It could be worse though, you should look up the penalty not given to Real Madrid in their last match!

    It appears that the technology isn't yet ready to be 100% clear on offsides so I would leave the tight decisions to the referee/assistants. Similar to umpire's call in cricket. You need a lot more cameras or tracking devices on the players' legs, bodies, feet and heads if you're going to get the offside line accurate to the cm.
  11. Marcos Alonso

    We need to rotate our FBs a lot more than we do. Emerson and Alonso are both better going forward than defending, but both would benefit from a more equal distribution of minutes. For matches where we expect to dominate, I'd play Zappacosta ahead of Azpilucueta. Azpi would be on the bench to bring on if necessary when we're ahead.

    Morata + cash for Icardi? With 15+ goals in each of the last four seasons in Serie A he's the best available option.

    VAR is only supposed to be used when there's a clear error. There was nothing clear about Kane being offside last night and the referee initially gave a freekick for offside, not a penalty. I don't see how anyone could chose to overturn that based on the available video evidence.

    I'd guess that Tammy can't go to Wolves even if he'd like to. He played for us in the Community Shield and then for Villa so he wouldn't be allowed to play for a third team this season. PL2 was considered an official match when Chalobah wanted to swap loans a few years ago so I'd assume the Community Shield is too.

    The charge regarding signing teenagers is a FIFA charge, not a UEFA charge.
