Hmmmm.
I think it was Caley that first coined "False 3" to describe Alonso.

I only watched a handful of full Chelsea games last year but based on those and their new signings, do they not need a sturdy defender that can actually, you know, defend?

Pereirra was the Leicester FB that did more attacking, they had a lopsided attack that way.

Pretty weird deal all around. Can only imagine once Juve showed interest McKennie he was set on joining them, but why are we accepting a loan?

Apparently we never actually made a bid so maybe Juve were the only game in town

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

No idea. Just read an article from a usually well connected Schalke journo saying he didn't want to join Berlin but showed interest in the PL, though that much was clear weeks ago. So it does seem like he likely wasn't anyone's number one target.

It's somewhere between a 3 and 6 million loan fee plus obligation to buy for ~20 (all in euro) if Juve qualify for the CL. Would rather have the money now but whatever.

Anything he says has been said by someone before him. He's not the god you think he is.

He wasn’t the first to call Neuer a false 1 either.

I am surprised QPR accepted Palace's offer over our bid of two copies of the December 1987 edition of Razzle and one of David Sullivan's Russian hats.

Eze deal could be shrewd business, especially if they can get big money for Zaha.

Palace getting Eze for the price they paid seems like an excellent deal for all parties
