Wow they seem to have a conveyor belt of talent....
I still want Zaha, but it's unrealistic as we have too many wide options.
Yup emery knew; instead we bought pepe for 72 million ffs. And people still think Raul did a good job
Pepe will score more than Zaha this year and both play primarily on opposite flanks. If we had have signed Zaha last year, he'd have tore it up, but it would probably have meant Auba on the right and Saka' path blocked.
The only way Zaha could happen would be if we were to play Auba centrally.
I have no problem with pepe. Pepe for 30 or 40 million made sense but 72? That's crazy money.
He may well have proven worth it by the end of the 4 years that it took us to pay it off. In the mean time, he's cost us about 35m. 70m on Zaha might not have been a better investment and may have stopped us getting Tierney.
Have found myself watching Ligue 1 and just happened to catch three games of OM.
Boubacar Kamara looks class. Based on what I’ve seen of him I’d have him as the no 1 Partey alternative. Very calm and good on the ball, decent positioning and reading of the game. Big upside as well as he’s only 21 (in Nov)
Anyone see Brighton earlier. Tariq Lamptey looks f*cking ridiculous.
He’s a kid but he was playing like prime Dani Alves today. Would be a great RB of the future.
I often sign Richarlison on FIFA to partner Auba, Auba on the left, Richarlison centrally & Pepe/Willian would be mesmerising imo. Will never happen but how I wish we could manage to get him before Laca.
Been on the Lamptey hype train since last season, he was brilliant yesterday.
Luckily for us if Bellerin were to leave we would be the only top team that actually needs Lamptey.
Deadline wishlist moves:
Sokra ( 5M ), Mustafi ( 10M ), Kolašinac ( 10M ).
Torreira for Partey + 25M ( 45M release clause met ).
50M for Aouar.
You'd love to see it.
According to Ornstein we tried to sign him when he moved to Brighton.
Yeah saw that. Interesting it was the same time as Cedric.
Maybe the club is looking to get a long term Bellerin replacement. Love to go back for him in a year or two.
The reasoning behind getting Lamptey is sound.
Getting Cedric? Kiasaster.
Yeah I don’t understand getting Cedric either. If Bellerin doesnt improve/finds consistency we don’t have a long term solution. On the other hand we could sell bellerin and land Aarons or Lamptey for example.
I'd love Lamptey in the long run. Just depends where AMN goes in the long run.
