re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - wm72
Yeah, it's a good point you make about there really being so few of the type DMs that protect the back line well even when caught out a bit and are still great getting the team into attack. I suppose I went a bit overboard on the singular importance of just that top CDM when there's certainly a l...

[quote]Meh. It's not like staying in Europa would have been very beneficial for them. [/quote] It's sad that Europa League is this way but it is. It would be better for the game if a Hull (or Torino etc etc etc) weren't so pressured by maintaining salvation in a cut throat league that qualify...

[quote]CDM is more interesting. Certainly we can upgrade talent wise over Arteta and Flamini, but I think the CDM position got put on a bit of a pedestal last season. . . [/quote] If DM was put on a pedestal [i]recently[/i] I could only imagine it would be by English "pundits" catching up to...

[quote]He isn't a DM.. he will defend, but at Zaragoza and Bilbao he was a CM, that usually played in a more advanced role.. I have to assume they didn't spend £28mm on him to play as a DM..[/quote] That's what I thought. You would have to think Van Gaal is going to use a 4-3-3 and the 3-5-2...

[quote]Is Niang out on loan again or do you just not rate him? [/quote] I actually forgot him when I was trying to play with the dashes to format it. . . unsuccessfully I might add since Inzaghi will mainly use a 4-3-3 but I gave up when that looked too cluttered to read. He's back with A...

[quote] Herrera [/quote] Really? I didn't watch Bilbao a ton but when I saw them I thought Itarraspe was always DM and Herrera defended well, tackled in their pressing but was usually the further forward of the midfield three. I always thought he was an impressive player but never thought...

Yeah, he's supposedly keen on pouring a lot of cash into Valencia. I'd guess the loan deal for Negredo has something to do with complex book keeping moves in light of them paying off huge debts. ...

[quote]Has to be a top 4 team this season. But if Torres is once again terrible, who plays up top? El Shaarawy, Honda, and Menez can't hold the ball up and be a true target man.

AC Milan's summer market - wm72
I have to say that for all the ridicule they get, they actually have a pretty decent team: -------El Shaarawy------Torres------Honda-------- -------(Bonaventura------(Pazzini)------(Menez, NIANG)-------- -------De Jong------Montolivo------Poli-------- -------(Essien)----(Sapanara, Mike...

[quote]He was great for City, but that's a pretty decent fee (24m pounds) for a player they paid roughly 18m pounds for last season and will turn 30 this year. Oh and one that's currently injured.

[quote]They then held on to Reus; probably helped by his pre-World Cup injury. [/quote] Yeah, that was huge for them after the Lewandowski, Goetze etc defections. [quote]Can we count Dortmund?[/quote] I still wouldn't quite consider Dortmund as one the poorer 95% of clubs since...

Star players who stayed put on the other 95% of European clubs? - wm72
Which clubs with at least somewhat modest budgets were able to hold onto star players for at least another season against the odds? I always love to see clubs that don't spend wildly able to give their fans one more season of watching great talents. Also, a nod to the players who probably coul...

[quote]Chicharito to Real Madrid makes no sense to me. [/quote] I bet he scores a goal a match against out manned sides. Odd part though is that they sold Morata to Juve. By the way, Morata's out for 2 months and 18 yo French striker Kingsley Coman who Juve just got from PSG had a fantastic ma...
