Well they've agreed a deal for Vlahovic so I reckon this will happen

I see the Fiorentina fans are taking the potential sale of a player to Juve with their usual good grace.

I'll just trust Mr Gerrard and his team to get it right. Ultimately, we know nothing.

I spent a few months in Florence not that long after they sold them Baggio.

Everyone hates Juventus (for good reason) but Fiorentina more than most.

Putting it mildly.

I would not want a player of this type who escapes prosecution/conviction etc on a technicality!
If he IS actually innocent, then fair enough but I would sooner go for Zakaria anyway.

Jackie G seemed to escape some more serious charges last year when wearing sliders on a footpath in Birmingham...Yorke and McGrath certainly had serious off field issues to mention two previous Villa heroes. Did fans care? Should we?

Innocent until proven guilty it has to be.

More serious charges than sexual assault?

Drink driving?

My favourite pizzaria in the world, near Florence, was covered wall to wall with Gabriel Batistuta signed shirts.

Andy Brassell (European football expert apparently) on Talkshite not exactly singing Bentancur’s praises. Says not really kicked on since been highly rated at 21. Reckons we should stick with what we’ve got. Obviously hasn’t watched us very much.


I don't ordinarily follow the stats sites, but I found this earlier when trying to find out more about Boubacar Kamara, this venn diagram came up with interesting names in the middle......was compiled in May last year admittedly.



I mean just look at all the names who aren't in that special middle section where Bentancur is. You can't be a mug being that good statistically in all 3 areas.

is he a good tackler who can read the game and set up an attack from our half?

Think we definitely need someone in the Kante / Bissouma / Ndidi mould.  A non-stop bundle of energy who can break up play and get around the opposition.  Plenty who can do that, but we also need someone who is good on the ball, with a good range of passing.  The combination of the two is often what separates the top quality ones from the rest, particularly in the Premier League.

I think Luiz is capable of doing that. But seems to want to play more at 8 than the traditional 6 role. Nakamba does his best but should only be a backup option at best.

Have to disagree about Luiz, as I just feel the defensive and combative attributes aren't there.  Would like to see him in our current midfield set up alongside that type of player though as I think that kind of role would really suits him.

Agree with your comments about Marv.

Questions on DMs in general…

Do you have to be combative if you can time a tackle?

Do you have to be a closing down energetic “terrier” if you can read the game well and make interceptions?

Do you have to be a ball carrier if you can pick a pass?

Yeah a healthy situation for us would be a new strong midfielder with McGinn and either Ramsey or Luiz with Nakamba, Sanson and Chuck as back up.

Where is Kante on that study?
