Review Of The Day 20th January 2018

As I mentioned the other day regarding the Sanchez deal. I said someone was trying to steal an extra sausage and if reports are to be believed mikis camp are expecting some sort of compo from united.

20 Jan 2018 07:23:15
I think if Miki is still under contract, than Utd have to pay out the remainder of that contract.

20 Jan 2018 07:50:57
That’s what I heard. But how does it differ from players that get sold on under contract all the time? Sanchez has 6 months left! Do we have to compensate that? Or is it down to players putting in transfer requests. I know that contracts can only be terminated under mutual consent or if either party has breached the contract in any way!

Ed01. Do you think oezil could do the deep lying playmaker role?

{Ed001's Note - depends on how he is asked to play. If you mean like Pirlo, though he would at least shadow opponents rather than just get out of their way like Pirlo did, then yes. If you mean like Xabi Alonso, then not a chance. He certainly has the vision and the range of passing. It is usually easier but less effective to play from deeper as you tend to get more time, hence why Pirlo would drop so deep to start with, according to himself, to get more time on the ball. However that was in Italy, where every team defended deep and did not use a press. If you are up against a team that presses, a DLP is going to be hounded and struggle to have an impact on the game.}

Thanks for reply ed. Yes more like Pirlo as I can’t imagine anyone doing what Alonso did. One of my very favourite players. Both real and Bayern were at their best with him in the team.

{Ed001's Note - and Liverpool were so much stronger when he played for them.}

20 Jan 2018 07:54:56
Yes indeed they were. Giving that you won the CL in his first year highlights the fact. With no disrespect to Liverpool I should have been more specific in that real and Bayern were considered in the top 3 teams in Europe along with Barcelona at the time and he made both those clubs significantly better. I think pep himself rates him highly and trying to remember past pep quotes maybe the best best that pep has managed.

20 Jan 2018 10:45:45
Pirlo, now that was a footballer you would pay to watch. Not sure there are too many about like him at the moment. Reminds me of going to watch Ian Bogie when he played for the Orient. Ok so not in the same class of Pirlo of course, but for there level he stood out a country mile, and you knew you was watching a player who should never have been playing at that club, so it was a massive bonus to see him play. Plus my wife liked his legs!

19 Jan 2018 21:13:05
Ed02 is there anything happening with pavon in January or is that one for the summer? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - The club is keen but it is not moving along right now.}

Agree1 Disagree0

Would love to get Aubamayang and Mkhitaryan, so they can team up like at Dortmund.
Than get Fekir, so he can team up again with Lacazette.

What a dream attack and Ozil the supply line.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jan 2018 21:48:05
Would be awesome but for us, unlikely.

19 Jan 2018 21:59:13
i really can't see Aubamayang joining us, reguardless of what the tablods are saying, i reckon there is maybe at a stretch a 10% chance, with wally out and the coq gone, we have made our 30 million this transfer window, i think that's the clubs aim, so apart from sanchez i don't reckon we will see anymore activity.

19 Jan 2018 22:32:03
I for 1 hope you are wrong, the squad needs a complete refresh, if nobody else comes in it confirms that ass Kroenke is stripping the club for all he can.

19 Jan 2018 20:09:04
is myka coming or not anyone know 1 min he is then he ain't.

{Ed025's Note - its still in the balance stephen..

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2018 20:31:59
Chill dude 😜.

20 Jan 2018 03:04:51
thanks ed.

19 Jan 2018 19:12:31
Why oh why do we always take so long to do deals. We are on a totally different level when it comes to transfers and I don't mean in a good way.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jan 2018 19:47:42
Simple, since Dein and Fiszman departed, the club hasn't a clue and Wenger should only be involved in selecting which players to buy, not the negotiations. Ideally replace Wenger with Simeone.

{Ed025's Note - why would you want arsene picking the players to buy RG?, you want simeone but he would run a mile if that was the case mate..

19 Jan 2018 17:58:22
For me if ozil goes buy draxler and fekir with miki moving to oezil possition. If he stays the miki out right and fekir our left! If auba comes him up front with those three behind.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2018 19:06:53
I genuinely think people will be saying in a few months why did United let miki go.
If he is given freedom to play he can be good. He has bags of potential, didn't happen at United but I think he will have something to prove now.
If you get the player that was at Dortmund you have a good one and best of luck to him.

19 Jan 2018 13:59:24
What about a version of 4 3 1 2
Bellerin mustafi kos kola
Ramsey xhaka wilshere
Ozil/ miki
Auba lacazette

Still leaves the problem of where to play miki but that formation allows a bit more protection to our leaky defence but also the opportunity of wilsh and rambo to get forward at times. Still think gk cb and xhaka are our weaker positions.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Jan 2018 15:21:55
I like that. A proper defensive midfielder in place of xhaka leaving the other 2 push on and I'd be happy. gk and cb would be good also.

19 Jan 2018 15:54:49
I agree with that D16. Sack off xhaka for Dm, get a replacement for kos, new goal keeper.

19 Jan 2018 16:09:33
No width in that team.

19 Jan 2018 17:13:07
Eye of a needle Football - we need a CDM and width.

19 Jan 2018 17:18:05
Dunno bout that jelfy. The two full backs will push forward for the width and you'll have 2 centre backs and the defensive midfielder to keep any counter attacks out. Could work.

19 Jan 2018 17:53:31
4-2-3-1 get Malcom, fekir, Lamar, marhez or draxler. 1 of them if ozil stays or 2 if ozil goes.

19 Jan 2018 18:26:19
Mustafi koscienly
Bellerin niles kolasniac
Ramsey wilshere
mykhatarian Ozil
Aubameyang/ lacazette.

19 Jan 2018 10:57:36
I see some of you boys are gutted at losing Sanchez and Walcott but if you land the other targets mentioned I think you will be a lot better and stronger, aybameyang is a complete handful and will score goals for fun at Arsenal and mikhatarian was excellent at Dortmund and I think mourinhos dire football tactics at Utd didn't suit him.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Jan 2018 12:12:05
Maureen has done his usual, his blind spot and plain negligence of flar players has failed to utilise mkytarian properly. I think our loss of sanchez and their gain in the short term is tough on us but longer term, sanchez is nearly 30 and we had his best years. If we end up with the ex dortmand pair, i would take that as an upgrade on sanchez and walcott. i'm not 100% certain sanchez and maureen will gel, wenger let sanchez get away with things that man u players and staff wont. It won't necessarily ne a match made in heaven long term. Plus our mkytarian will need to revert back to his dortmund days. Our new manager may be able to do that. Lol.

19 Jan 2018 12:48:38
I wonder how sanchez will fare at united!

19 Jan 2018 12:49:28
all players are 30, so i don't see us getting a better deal than them.

while they complete their team we are dithering looking for space cakes.

19 Jan 2018 12:51:50
I will be well pleased if we do get both of them. And with rumors that Ozil is close to signing a new contact too is only positive news! We will be a darn sight stronger and more creative on the attacking front and then hopefully more goals will follow. Even if our defense is still frail, scoring more goals will help with results! Slightly concerned over how long these 'talks' are taking but fingers crossed all will go to plan :)

19 Jan 2018 13:38:32
I think it’s a case of some party trying to steal an extra sausage Glenn . I should imagine arsenal want this done ASAP.

19 Jan 2018 13:49:46
Laker miki is 28 and so is auba not that that matters. Its the amount they are paying for a 30 year old with no sell on and nearing his count down.

19 Jan 2018 13:50:50
We won't let sanchez go until he is replaced, i hope.

19 Jan 2018 14:26:39
doesnt matter if we get auba and mikhi then maybe top 4 push doable, without sanchez we can rebuild in the summer and will need to buy.

dont see point losing out on a fee for a player who does not want to be here.

19 Jan 2018 15:48:46
if ozil stays and miki is here I don't see how it works I just don't.

19 Jan 2018 17:05:53
Derby, isn't that what some would call strength in depth? We all moan were one injury away from a crisis so why can't we have both? At least it would keep Iwobi one leg further away from the first team, surely that's worth the outlay!

19 Jan 2018 17:54:02
Miki can play wide.

19 Jan 2018 18:02:53
Maybe wenger can make ozil or miki our midfield destroyer. 😃.
