The Penny Blue's latest activity

    Off of the reports of him tearing his adductor. Anything worse than overstretching a muscle (which I imagine he would have been able to play through) it would take a bit of time to heal. 1.5 weeks is pushing it and he'd be at risk of doing worse

    Allan will most likely not be able to play this one. I don't think the prospect of Gomes Siggy and Doucoure is a good one as for how industrious Doucoure is, I don't think he will make up for the other 2's immobility. I think Davies would have to...

    Allan was a leader at Napoli and is highly regarded and respected by Ancelotti but language could be a barrier as from what I can tell he only speaks Italian and Portuguese. Holgate is a good shout but same issue as Allan. Gomes could be one also...

    Kean will lapse DCL as our starting striker this season and with all the new CM signings I can see Richy moving back out to the LW for a good amount of the games.

    RB is our biggest priority. Neither Coleman nor JJK are good enough in possession to adequately support the attack and JJK isn't really good enough defensively for the league. Don't need someone with blistering pace or a never ending engine, we...

    Gomes doesn't play well in a position that controls the ball in high pressure areas along with his propensity to take the easy, high percentage pass instead of the incisive one. Bernard really fell off since the Chelsea game last season and is...

    Think it’s more for what type of player Carlo would like to add too the team and make a short list
  • The Penny Blue
    Everyone on here worrying about who we’ve been linked with when we haven’t even started looking yet. Carlo said that the transfer summit will be held this week with the Brands Moshiri and the rest of the board as to what the approach will be to...

    Carlo doesn’t make the signings so throughout his whole career as a manager has worked with a DOF figure closely who made the signings for the team. Carlo is just a very flexible manager capable of adding any bit of quality into his teams

    There is a lot to do , but I am more optimistic than many on here. I think that the Blurts , City and Chelsea will finish miles clear next season. Let's face it United are crap , and without their 14 penalties (or however many they got) they...

    I think it will be horses for course. DCL is a great hold up front man and gives CBS a physical tussle. Kean is good with ball on the floor and running at defenders. We have not been playing that way, but if Carlo gets his his high energy...

    The crosses and headers are our hidden weakness. Since Silva has taken over we have been a one trick pony in attack seemingly with out a doubt pushing the ball out wide every time we meet any sort of resistance moving forward. Relying completely...

    I wonder that about Kean all the time. Should have played more after the restart and think he’d have 4-5 more goals from it. The kid has what is needed to be great the team needs to trust him and give him the ball
  • The Penny Blue
    Key part of this is movement. Our CM is so stationary and slow that nearly all transitions immediately break down
  • The Penny Blue
    I’d argue that DCL’s hold up play is actually poor and never seems able to invite players in to the attack. I also wouldn’t say he has regressed because it was never there. He was just having a good run of form and even with that he scuffed a few...
