  1. Yep, I presume that’s what’s going on here. It’s down to the governing bodies financial rules they’ve put in place though, with selling home grown players being such a positive on the balance sheet. I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of this happen and I don’t blame any of the teams doing it, to be honest. Football, it’s just a business now. No doubt those in charge will close the loophole soon enough though.
  2. Pulled out of the Olise deal, which is a shame as I think he’s a really good player, but I don’t think it’s the end of the world. At least they came to the decision quickly and are moving on.
  3. Some tips for your Gareth… Don’t play a RB at LB. Don’t play a RB at CM. Don’t play an 8 at 10. Don’t play a 10 at LW. Do play the young player of the year who had 42 goals and assists over the season. Do play the player of the season in the position he plays so well for his club. Stop trying to force the big name players into your team, instead work on a system that suits your squad and if that means some of them have to miss out, so be it. Don’t be so negative. Let your creative players play their natural game.
  4. Wonderful player, one of my favourites in a Chelsea shirt and arguably one of the more underrated players in the PL era.
  5. I'm really not too worried about the potential sale of Maatsen. From the limited opportunities he had in the first team last season, he didn't look that great to me and I fear his height will be an issue as well. He didn't get many opportunities last season, but he also never took the chances when they came his way. He had a decent season for Burnley in the Championship, but he was better going forward than defending and he then did well for Dortmund in the German league, which isn't saying too much. We can't keep all the academy prospects just because they're home grown and if selling Maatsen means keeping Gallagher, then it's great business. If he weren't at Chelsea and we were linked with him, the majority of fans wouldn't be happy.
  6. 3 right backs and the best one also on the beach along with Chilwell.
  7. You are absolutely right. I've probably done a bit of a Southgate and tried to force the players into the system. He definitely won't drop Kane and I worry Foden will end up being the man to be sacrificed as Southgate just doesn't really know what to do with him and golden boy Bellingham won't be dropped either. You could still play a 2 with Rice and Bellingham and then move Foden into the no. 10 role and someone else wide left. The problem is that Bellingham doesn't seem to want to play so deep and has been in tremendous form further forward this season. Bellingham - Rice Palmer - Foden - Gordon Kane
  8. Di Mario is linking us with striker Omorodion, who is at Atletico and was on loan to Alaves last season scoring 8 goals in 35 appearances.
  9. I was literally coming here to post this exact same thing!
