To give some players a break and others some game time? Just as an idea.

Dalot lindelof rojo Shaw

Valencia Fred young

Periera Sanchez


Valencia can swap or drop back with Dalot and Shaw can overlap young with Rojo covering the LB possition. This works with Valencia pushing up, Young steps across allowing Pereira go Central and Sanchez go wide covering the space. If either FB is getting over run then we have the players to swap and shore that up.

This is just theory obviously as Mata will prob get on before Pereira etc. I would just like to see the guys above albeit Lindelof fight for a spot on the first 11 I stead of warming the bench.

Agree0 Disagree8

Rojo has not been fit all season!

08 Feb 2019 14:16:38
Valencia would need a cut lunch, a pair of binoculars and a Greater Manchester bus pass to find his way forward these days. He has totally forgotten what attack means.

07 Feb 2019 10:25:18
Can someone confirm if Nantes has demanded transfer fee for Emiliano Sala from Cardiff City? Eds?

{Ed001's Note - yes but it is not so much demanded as asked for the agreement to be maintained. Cardiff had completed the deal so they have every right to ask for the money and they have to comply with the terms of the contract as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2019 14:06:31
The fact this has become public knowledge suggests Cardiff want to avoid honouring the agreement.

What has happened is a tragedy, and any squabbling over money is just unseemly and vulgar.

Cardiff just need to honour the agreement and move on.

07 Feb 2019 14:25:12
Nantes are entitled to their money regardless of the tragedy. If someone in my accounts dept dies i still have to settle my bills at the end of the month regardless of how they died.

Shappy i agree it should not be in the public domain. But in today's world so much is in the public domain but how much of what you see and read is factual.

Its an emotive subject so will get clicks and sell papers. There is nothing coming from either club officially to suggest Cardiff have renaiged on the deal.

Just tittle tattle and gossip fuelled by unscrupulous media outlets who don't care who they hurt and want to whip up a frenzy or storm.

07 Feb 2019 21:03:11
It might not be so simple. There could be an insurance policy in place and I think Bordeaux may be entitled to a sell on clause as well.

Over the remainder of the season we play most of our rivals at OT. Ole has a fantastic opportunity to impress over these few months. I just hope the knives fon't coming out the first time we drop points - these are still the same squad and there are certainly some quality gaps that need addressing to be serious about challenging for the title.

06 Feb 2019 11:01:27
Was wondering about the 20 EPL teams and the players they have who I think can either improve our team (starting 11 plus bench)

Arsenal - Belerin, Lacazette, Auba, Xhaka
Bournemouth - 0
Brighton - Duffy
Burnley - 0
Cardiff - O
Chelsea - Azpi, Kante, Hazard, Alonso
Palace- Wan
Everton - Gueye, Digne
Fulham - Seri
Hud'field- 0
Leicester- Macguire, Chilwell, Ricardo, Ndidi, Vardy
Lpool - 0 . gun to head; Salah, Mane, Firmino, VVD, Robertson, TAA, Fab
City- Mendy, Walker, Komapny, Stones, Laporte, Fernandinho, D. Silva, KDB, Sterling, Sane, Aguero, Mahrez,
Newcastle- 0
Soton - Bertrand
Spurs- Trippier, Rose, Toby, Vertonghen, Aurier, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Kane, Dier.
Watford- Doucoure,
Wolves- Doherty, Neves, Moutinho
West Ham- Rice, Anderson.


{Ed001's Note - some bizarre choices in there.
No Torreira from Arsenal? And Xhaka? That has to be a joke right?
What about Brooks and Lewis Cook?
Duffy? Barely Championship level and not even half the player of Dunk alongside him.

I have to give up I just saw you included Aurier, so this must be a comedy post! Apologies I thought you were being serious.}

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Feb 2019 12:13:25
Xhaka is a mistake waiting to happen. I would instead take Guendouzi who has terrifying potential at this age.

06 Feb 2019 12:17:47
April 1st is weeks away.

06 Feb 2019 12:39:30
Sissoko haha he must be one of the worst players to ever play in a top 4 team, I really do not understand what he adds and I would be mortified if we signed him.

Yet you include him and not Bernardo Silva, think you probably should have taken a bit more time over this post as it could be quite an eye opener with the correct players.

06 Feb 2019 14:34:03
Hahaha i expected even worse quips in reply hehehehehe.
Like i said personal choices and not really an expert. To defend my choices (pls be gentle when i am done), I have seen Guendouzi and Torreira and since it is just their 1st season i am not as convinced as i am with Ricardo Pereira's debut. They have had bad games and great games, maybe next season they'd be among my 1st picks. Xhaka's justification is a flimsy one but bcos our lack of cover in the MF and his ability to slot into the back 4 like matic.
I honestly don't see who Brooks will replace, as i haven't watched enough of him to judge, same with cook. Was thinking about fraser but think he plays more on the left where we seem overly covered.
The duffy/ dunk was a coin toss, one match one is great another match the other has a good game, 3rd match they both shine or flop.
Now to Aurier, I know Ed 001 doesn't rate him much, but i have seen him play for Ivory coast and Toulouse and he impressed me as well as at PSg. I think if he is given a good consistent run of games he will impress in England as well.

GDS, Sissoko's adapted play in the CM role when Dembele left impressed me. He will be cover for our MFs as he can slot into different MF roles.

All in all, based on the replies I probably covered 80% of names that MAY cut across the general opinion; so still an A score (ducks for cover)

{Ed001's Note - Ricardo Pereira who has been at fault for a number of goals due to an inability to defend has impressed you more than Torreira who has been Arsenal's stand out player? Odd.

Xhaka is abysmal in either position.

Duffy and Dunk are not good enough, but Duffy is truly terrible full stop.

I am sorry but Aurier is a dick, he will always be a dick and will never get a good consistent run of games because he is a dick who will do something stupid and get dropped or sent off.

Sissoko can barely kick a ball in the direction he aims it!}

06 Feb 2019 15:20:17
Ed, I reread the Aurier bit at least three times, still can't stop laughing.
I surrender, I am editing my post; removing Duffy, Aurier and Sissoko and replacing Xhaka with Toreira (yes I am that easy) .

{Ed001's Note - I was trying to be nice about Aurier, but it is impossible.

As for the surrendering, if only I could find a gf that easy!}

07 Feb 2019 21:07:18
001 and mbd that's one crazy thread😂.

08 Feb 2019 12:47:21
These are crazy times Ken :P :) 😂.

04 Feb 2019 19:40:04
Watched Bailly yesterday, his passing forward is very poor. Leicester closed him down in possession and he just kicked it forward losing possession. He is very similar to Smalling and Jones in that department, Lindelof has very good distribution. We need a CB who is good on the ball.

Agree2 Disagree2

05 Feb 2019 12:47:43
Mourinho destroyed his confidence. Give him time. He will be a top CB.

06 Feb 2019 05:19:25
Bailly is a fantastic athlete with good pace and power. However, it is his composure which needs to be improved. Right now he is the best option as a 3rd choice CB.

07 Feb 2019 05:46:42
Who would you have as second after Lindelof?

04 Feb 2019 18:55:11
Saw this online maybe not everyone's humour
L, A rams were disappointed to lose the Superbowl after punting almost everytime they had the ball
Head coach Mourinho insists the addition of fellani in the draft will ensure this tactic works next year.

{Ed025's Note - i like it slate..

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Feb 2019 20:23:39
Sorry ed we don't get too many football jokes, however sources close to bielsa at elland road have discovered Ashley Cole will just be at derby until the season's end, Russia is scaling down its nuclear armament and danaerys targaryan dies in childbirth.

04 Feb 2019 09:02:01
It has been a real pleasure to see attacking quick play from Utd these past few weeks. Now looking forward we need to be realistic. This is where the going gets tough. At the moment Ole could have not done any better with this squad but what is your opinion of how we will finish the season. I think Chelsea have an easier run in than us and Higuain will prove to be good business for them and that they will take 4th spot in the league. Again being realistic it is unlikely we are good enough to win the Champions League. The F A Cup is possible but not easy to win either. So if we end up 5th or 6th in the league and without a trophy do you all still think Ole should get the job.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2019 10:53:40
What is the obsession with working out if he should get the job, can we not just enjoy it and see what happens and then let the club make the decision at the end of the season?

Nobody in their right mind would have thought on the day Ole took over that 10 games later we would have won 9 drawn 1 and be one win away from being in the top 4 before Chelsea play on Sunday, so you have no idea how we will cope with the games ahead.

Let's just enjoy them knowing we can equal these teams even if we don't get the wins.

04 Feb 2019 11:04:08
I believe that 4th is still a realistic possibility. Chelsea have not adapted to Sarri ball yet and Higuain is not very clinical.
We have momentum with us compared to the other teams. The manager and the team seem to be fully committed to the cause.

04 Feb 2019 11:05:44
I think that depends on the manner of how we finish the season. If the club is moving in the right direction, yet other teams results denied us a top four place more so than our own then that makes a difference. If we win a cup then that is entirely dependent on luck with the squad we have available. There are better teams in each competition, to over come them all to make it to a final and win it will require a large amount of luck. The fact that we all feel it is possible shows how much Ole has lifted us in the last few weeks.

If we finish in the top 4 and win a trophy then its a no brainer Ole gets the job. If we finish outside the top four and without a trophy then he will have t be assessed on HOW we played and the circumstances involved. 8 weeks ago we had no chance of finishing top four, so to be in with a chance is a massive improvement.

05 Feb 2019 18:32:23
If we are outside by a small margin, l still would want to appoint Ole. We need to consider how many points we were behind when he took over and the fact of the ominous number of clubs who were then threatening to overtake us. He didn't start with a level playing field. We shouldn't judge as if he did.

07 Feb 2019 01:39:57
You say Chelsea have an easier run in, but who saw them being done 4-0 by Bournemouth? Or us reeling them in so quickly? There’s a lot of football to be played and if we can keep this positive form and vibe going we’ve got a real shot at top 4.

03 Feb 2019 17:08:14
Does Aubameyang look a lot like Lewis Hamilton?

Agree3 Disagree1

03 Feb 2019 17:36:16
He does, I thought exactly the same thing.

04 Feb 2019 06:44:54
yeah he does.

04 Feb 2019 11:06:28
Hold up, is that a negative thing or has Shan broken character?

07 Feb 2019 17:12:27
Maybe Shan is a Hamilton supporter - so doesn’t really likehm either.

03 Feb 2019 15:34:04
69 min in. I am not entertained. Been pathetic.

Agree1 Disagree21

03 Feb 2019 15:53:39
Dislike? Really? Watching something else? This is absolute trash.

03 Feb 2019 16:17:04
It was a mourinhoesque performance to be fair, except we came away with 3 points.

03 Feb 2019 16:23:05
We’re on a ten match unbeaten run winning nine and putting in some great performances. I think the disagrees are because your comment seems to ignore that context. We won. We can’t play well every game.

03 Feb 2019 16:31:18
We looked sloppy today, very wasteful in the final third. After a fast start we sat back and it was scrappy. However, take a step back and we’ve won 9 of 10, we are the form team I terms of goals, pointo, goals conceded. After a dodgy result n Tuesday we won away for the 5th game in a row, some5ing not done since SAF retired.

Shan mate, you do seem hard to please. After Fulham next week we then have some very big games so let’s see how we fare then.

03 Feb 2019 16:35:14
RWWD, i agree to that we cannot play every game. Its just that our performances have been deteriorating after first 3 games.

03 Feb 2019 16:56:41
No Tony buddy, not hard to please. Its just that i am finding it hard to see what is the difference between our performances from Jose. For now, the results are covering up the performances, pretty much like last season.

03 Feb 2019 16:59:04
No side outside of the top six has won more points against the top six than Leicester.

The current league leaders couldn't beat Leicester at home a few days ago, whereas we beat them away.


Shan you have replaced Beast as Mr Negative. All your posts recently have been about how unhappy you are with our side. That's a strange mentality to have considered we are on a 10 game unbeaten stretch winning 9 of those games and playing some good entertaining offensive football during that run.

As I pointed out to you the other day, we still have the same players, some of them limited and unable to play the kind of football we would like to see to a high enough standard. However, the focus of the game and the tactics has changed, we no longer go to midtable side and play defensively, parking the bus and hoping for a set piece goal to win the game. We attempt to take the game to the opposition, we create more chances. The facts show that no team in the EPL has had more shots than us since Ole took over.

We could have been 3-0 up at half time had we been a little more clinical in front of goal today. I'm sure we would have seen a very different second half had that been the case.

Cheer up mate, if you can't be happy during a 10 game unbeaten run then I wonder how miserable you must have been under Mourinho.

03 Feb 2019 17:13:06
Shappy, totally agree mate. We may not play well every game, but the results count. Today was a bad day, we won with some ok attacking football.

03 Feb 2019 17:35:41
I see no difference between what we were under Jose wrt performance. We pretty much parked the bus today.

{Ed025's Note - your being very harsh imo shan..

03 Feb 2019 17:45:54
Shan, that’s not what the stats say in terms of possession or shots on target. We weren’t great but he didn’t sit deep and try and defend, we continued trying to attack to the end. It’s just today we weren’t great at it.

03 Feb 2019 18:04:14
Shan is the new Maze/ rollo/ jmb.

03 Feb 2019 18:41:15
Difference between jose and ole is that kind if performance we saw today is only acceptable when the team are winning and we weren't doing that under Jose. So rubbish football plus bad results = sacking.

Ole, so far has us creating more, scoring more, conceding less and winning games. Not sure why you're complaining. I thought you were a results orientated person Shan.

03 Feb 2019 19:49:37
Shan, if you fell in a barrel of tits you’d come up sucking your own thumb. Cheer up pal. 😀.

03 Feb 2019 19:59:59
The results haven’t though, I thought we were quick out the blocks today and they couldn’t cope with us before the goal, after that we struggled a bit against a good Leicester side who held the mighty Liverpool in the week. Not a great performance but great result again and we move on in good form.

03 Feb 2019 20:44:33
At least Beast had a valid reason to complain about our performances and results.

03 Feb 2019 14:47:14
Ashley young, no positional awareness, can't cross and can't play a through ball. Enough said. Roll on the summer. Let's hope the revolving exit door is spinning at top speed.

Agree2 Disagree1

What a surprise, Phil Jones loses his man. Why oh why is that clown on the pitch?
