It's truly remarkable lolImagine being at the last home game and being unable to celebrate every goal in a 5-1 drubbing. We did that to them
We now have the platform to give Conte what he wants. Finishing top 4 is a miracle like Conte said. He took over a side mid season, tried to implement Conte-ball tactics to a side 18th for chances created and 20th for distance covered, worked with 16 regular starters for the final 5 months. The job he has done so far is amazing.Seems a touch subdued but i imagine we all wait with baited breath on whether we back conte.
- Law and McGrath at the Telegraph say we want Raheem Sterling.
Spence I'd take as backup to Dumfries and cut two of Royal, Tang or Doherty. Haven't really seen the kid play, but have liked Dumfries' form at Inter. Has the wares to be as good as Walker.Forster, Spence, JWP, Sterling surely all on the list because we need HG.
Happy with all those targets apart from Forster as a number 2. Forster as a number 3 with a coaching role, I'm all for. Anyone getting dropped for Alex McCarthy isn't good enough to be Lloris backup
Home grown will be a serious issue this summer. Dele gone in January. Winks likely to leave. Tanganga and Rodon apparently to leave (loan and sale).Spence I'd take as backup to Dumfries and cut two of Royal, Tang or Doherty. Haven't really seen the kid play, but have liked Dumfries' form at Inter. Has the wares to be as good as Walker.
JWP I like. He's solid as a CM and a free kick gun. Eriksen much the same. good rotation for Bentancur.
CF/wing im interested to see how we go. Zaniolo has long been linked. Depay was for a bit. Sterling feels like a good upgrade on Bergy, but is he going to come and sit behind Kulu/Son. We don't really pay that much. Damsgaard has been quiet since the WC. gets another chance later in the year though. One to watch (or go the loan w/option route)
LWB seems a bit at sea. ? on Reg. Links to Cucurella (also linked with City, so there goes that likely).
Hickey has been solid on the few Bologna games I've caught (sadly no chance to get over this year to try and catch one or two in person)
This is a testament to Conte as a coach, working with guys that he wants to replace and making them better. The Athletic reporting that he wants to upgrade LCB.. Yet he has still made Davies a bloody good defender this season. Wants to upgrade at RWB yet has made Royal and Doherty better in the process, and Doherty the more likely to retained as he is HG which we need. Sadly. As I do agree Royal needs time. Would loan him.Why is Royal always talked up as not being wanted?
I don't get it, the kid can play, just needs time to mature
Forster and JWP I'd be very happy with for HGs
And yep, Dier not making the England squad a joke
