re: 2017/2018 Transfer Thread - wm72
In fairness to Morata, he wasn't really a full starter at Juve either. Think he started less than half their matches even his final season. Mainly started their CL knockouts because he worked so hard and was dangerous on the counter. ...

[quote]Per Sky Italia quote: Sampdoria are offering €7m [£6m] for Jack Wilshere, but it’s reported Arsenal want €10m [£8.7m].[/quote] This is interesting. Not sure many who don't follow Serie A are aware but Sampdoria has Lucas Torreira. He's a 21yo Uruguayan deep lying p...

re: 2017/2018 Transfer Thread - wm72
Kun sure doesn't seem like the type striker Conte has always preferred. With Juve and especially the Italian NT, he often left "more talented" strikers on the bench because his entire system seemed so dependent of the hold up and lay off passing play of a bigger, more classic #9 type striker. ...

[quote]Di Marzio saying Roma have offered somewhere in the 20-25 million range for Mahrez, but Leicester are holding out for 35. [/quote] The exact fee AS Roma and Leicester are discussing for Mahrez has been all over the place the past week. Di Marzio and other reliable Roman journalists re...

[quote]Milan is having an amazing summer[/quote] Yeah, it's nuts how many good players they're adding. Bonucci is massive and, by himself, probably puts them in good stead to challenge Roma and Napoli (and maybe Juve too) Certainly in great position going forward since most of the big sign...

re: 2017/2018 Transfer Thread - wm72
[quote]I'm not getting Juventas at all on this deal.[/quote] Bonucci had a huge falling out with Allegri last season. Juve also seem pretty committed to their mantra of facilitating player transfers if they wish to leave and Juve gets a reasonable offer. They think the benefits of this...

[quote] Acerbi [/quote] Acerbi has been really good since his return. Sabatini, the previous Roma SD before Monchi, seemed to have very keen interest in him the past couple of seasons so I always paid closer attention. Zenit's back line could be like multiverse Roma with Paredes in fron...

re: IFAB to propose scrapping two 45-minute halves for two 30-minute halves with stoppages - wm72
[quote]I've seen it proposed before, but the general audience of any game should see the amount of stoppage time accrued throughout the game. That way, there isn't an arbitrary determination of stoppage time by the ref. [/quote] This seems such a simple way to ease whatever frustrations fans ...

re: Is Liverpool still a "big" club? - wm72
[quote]I'd buy the parity argument if the teams played at a high level. The top teams generally don't. The tactics are worse in the league as a whole compared to the late noughties, and the only teams with real positional sense going forward and defensively are Tottenham and Chelsea.[/quote] I ag...

re: Is Liverpool still a "big" club? - wm72
[quote]Germany and Italy are great examples. Bayern and Juve don't have many major threats domestically at the moment, and they've been able to buy up the best talent from their league — even their biggest competitiors (BVB for Bayern, teams like Roma for Juve). Since they are so much better than mo...

re: Is Liverpool still a "big" club? - wm72
Certainly. Liverpool --along with clubs like AC Milan and Inter-- would need to fall on very hard times for at least a couple of decades to no longer be considered among the biggest clubs in Europe. Very hard times are not finishing barely out of the CL spots for a few seasons. ...

re: OFFICIAL LFC 16/17 Season Long Thread - Piss off, Gunners!! - wm72
[quote]read on multiple sites that Liverpool had offered 35M *pounds* and not euros.[/quote] That's pretty close to asking price. €30m was the offer I've seen the Roma media reporting. Like TFTC says above I'd imagine £35m gets the deal done. (Unless the recent English elections have made that €3...
