    Pepe to barca



     
  2. That's just the way it goes mayne. In Argentina, it's the "next Maradona." In Brazil, it's the "next Pele."

    In Brazil the new thing has actually been “The next Neymar”

    Guess because they shockingly haven’t produced a quality striker/CF in so long. But with the likes of Vinicius and Rodrygo when people get carried away they make the Neymar comparison. As much as he’s an F-boi these youngns have a lot to prove before there’s some legitimacy to the comparisons.

  6. Phil Schoen making things up again, we're not paying for the stadium renovation out of pocket all at once. Its a 25 year loan repayment.

    Need Jovic to get his EU citizenship if we do get him, we already have Vinicius, Militao, Rodrygo can go on loan but after next season it would be an issue, Valverde & Casemiro are getting their citizenships.

    Hope this is true to keep his price down without the bidding war from Barca. Real just need a finisher don’t need a link up dude. Mariano ain’t it. Kane isn’t worth it, Icardi is a scumbag, Lewa is old.

  8. wtf is going on.
    Can't watch but I got the scores up at work. Look at the score and we're up, I look a way for a sec and there's a red...
     
  9. the price I seen is 70, there's a whole bunch of stuff coming out about how we have a good relationship with Frankfurt, I think it gets done.

    major blunder by Watford's keeper, he was too lax with the ball looking for someone to pass it to with Auba still chasing after him. Auba just stuck a foot out and he essentially blocked it into the goal lol

    Deeney put up an elbow against Lucas, which there was intent to play him tough but I don't think it was malicious at all and the ref just went for the red

    I think it’s time for Real and Asensio to seriously consider a loan to the Bundesliga or something

    Dude’s career isn’t going anywhere here. He needs a season of consistently bagging assists and goals elsewhere to gain the confidence and maturity to play as a forward here. Would take some balls from Zizou and Flo. Watching him be a non-factor over and over is sad for himself and for fans.

    Dude isn’t agile, mobile, and a threatening enough runner to be a winger imo. He’s not a CF either. And he’s not a natural CM. It’s really starting to look like his best role might be as a #10 in a fringe UCL/Europa team, because top sides don’t really play 10s nowadays.

    If he sticks around here he’s going to turn into a Lucas Vazquez with a lower work rate. Just taking up space on a flank.

    To add to the point, Hazard seems to be close to a done deal, Zizou wants Mane (this one won’t be easy though,) Rodrygo is coming in who seems to already have more attitude and hunger than Asensio. Jovic could very well happen. Why have Asensio here just wasting his potential, and gaining zero confidence, maturity, and real experience? Dude is the type to get comfortable in the backseat without a real spark and expectations.

    Marcelo is done btw. Dude needs to go to Galatsaray. And Nacho to Everton.

    Would also rather try out James again than keep Isco, it’s just physically difficult to see him getting his form back when he seems to move like he’s taking short strides in molasses.

  18. If we're being honest the team has looked no better with Zizou back, but his return isn't about this year. Same old performance from the team, the wrong players are playing, tired of ranting about this ****.

    In hindsight, we really got lucky with the red card. We got the clean sheet but the match felt like we were still playing 11v11. Idk if we were instructed by Emery to just sit back or if the players were having a bad day since we hardly caused real threat to score. There were chances but all were because of the extra space we fortunately had.

    Not the intensity I wanted to see after having a man advantage, we should of killed them off before the half but instead we let them get their shots in. Still got the important 3 points but we can't play like this again Thursday

    We all new that the last 10 games were a throw away and merely shot for some players to show that they want to be here next season.

    Clearly Ceballos, Bale, Nacho, Llorente, and Mariano have no place here next year.
