    He's an excellent player and certainly not a flop, but Ballack has a point - he seems to lose his head a bit sometimes, most notably when he missed the penalty at home to Bayern and away at Man City. When things aren't going right, he seems to sulk a bit rather than try hard to bounce back.
    No point denying it...without even being biased, you can see there is an element of truth here. Ozil is a fine player, but it was his first season here, you can't really blame him. I do slightly agree with that last part, he seems to just give up sometimes in games but meh, he's been a great signing nonetheless, he's really helped out the team both on the pitch and psychological aspects. He can only become greater.

    Cesc is just as likely to get injured like everyone else. His record at Barca isn't pristine so you can't blame it on our medical incompetence.

    Barca's injury record are almost as ridiculous as yours tbh.

    They have permacrocks in Adriano, Puyol. Messi has been injured a lot the past year, Fabregas has been injured a bit too, Xavi gets ice on his heel after every 90mins.

    They're pretty bad when it comes to managing people's fitness. Remember when Guardiola had to play Tello and Cuenca for long periods.

    So if Real want to buy Suarez. We should totes get Benzema

    Benzema
    Griezeman Ozil Walcott
    Ramsey DM
    Apparently, it's more likely we'd get Morata in that case for cut down price of £8m so long as Real Madrid have the 2 year buy-back clause. I think Morata would flourish alongside Giroud or up top alone with Ozil supplying and Walcott stretching defences alongside him.

    I don't want Morata unless we buytwo strikers. The guy is severely average and just surrounded by stars to make him look better. He's not our answer to winning the league. Even if a ozil supplies well you still need the quality to finish but from what I've seen Morata has been mediocre.

    Still young but I'd much rather go for proven players right now. Suarez will cost a minimum of 70 million so Real will have to sell much more than Morata. Their better off selling Benzema and Di Maria since Morata could be a star for the future(for them)

    It's a given.

    New league, no pre season with us and not accustomed to not having a winter break.

    He will definitely go ham next season because he's got a point to prove, some of the criticism he received was just disrespectful, he didn't have an awful season like people seem to think!

    I'm confident he can as well. He'll hopefully have a striker who runs forward as well. It's a massive year for him, next season.

    I understand your point but he must be better that severely average as he's highly regarded in Madrid. He simply hasn't had the chance or backing to shine with a sufficient run of game. At AFC, game time is something he'd definitely get and he's a better prospect than Sanogo for sure.

    True! I too would like a proven world class striker so fair enough. On the topic of Di Maria, if he's sold by Madrid that would be terrible treatment as this year he has shone in their shirt for them.

    He's what might be generously be described as a 'cultured defender', intelligent in his positioning, quick, decent interceptions, distribution etc. Tendency to completely crumble under any kind of sustained pressure though, absolute hates physical strikers(Drogba raped him soooooooooo often), poor in the air.

    If Vlaar is your first choice, then you have bigger problems than Senderos though

    Nice, didn't realise he was 29 either so he's got a few years left in him yet. It's gone down like a lead balloon with our fans though, not really sure why tbh.

    Just seen the other posts, was this a wum?

    I thought I described him pretty fairly tbh, I dont see how describing a centre back as being liable to crumble under pressure or get dominated physically is a glowing review anyway. He has certain attributes (in theory at least) that got him in the door at Arsenal and AC Milan though, I can recall games when he played brilliantly, but as I say he is mentally very weak and unreliable. Play him against a Lukaku and he's bang in trouble.

    Personally wouldnt have signed him in Villa's position, would have got Hangeland.

    Not sure what you mean.

    Just because a player was a failure overall doesnt mean he lacks virtues. I wouldnt give Gervinho a glowing review overall but I can still think of things he did very well.

    Well for starters he was awful from the games I remember. So happy we got rid of him, every time we had him in our back 4 I was always on edge.

    If someone asks you to fill them in though you sum up the player. If they asked for the players strengths then fair enough. Either way Senderos is appalling.

    Also Smalling is the worst CB I've ever seen. An absolute embarrassment to our nation.
