  1. Who do you want Summer 2018

    Reckon we could see quite a bit of movement this summer... Don't think it'll be quite as extensive as this, as so many changes could well have an adverse effect, but there's a lot of deadwood at our club atm, or out on loan, that needs stripping back. Out: King Slimani Ulloa Musa Mendy Kapustka Jakupovic Benalouane Huth (Free) Mahrez Schmeichel Fuchs In: Ben Arfa (Free) T.Hazard (~£25m) Pereira (~£20m) Dragovic (~£17m) Evans / Smalling (~£3m) Horn / Butland (???/~£30m) LB (Shaw? May be too costly) (~£28m) I know Hamer is out of contract in the summer, but he seems content on the bench and just about good enough as a deputy, so I'd rather give him an extra couple years and bin off Jakupovic, if he's willing. No idea how good our youth GKs are otherwise that could be an option? I'd also demote Morgan to vice-captain and give the armband to a younger player - wouldn't mind seeing Harry taking charge if he's up to it. Not a fan of giving it to someone who's just signed, so seems to be a reasonable option and a guaranteed starter. Few others who could realistically be sold (James, Okazaki, Simpson etc.) and I'd look to start including some of the younger players in the matchday squad more regularly; Hamza, Barnes, Knight et al. Eye-balling it, I'd say that could be around £100m coming in, mostly from the Mahrez fee, and incoming wouldn't be too dissimilar, depending on the GK choice and if we opted for Shaw or a cheaper option like Bertrand. Looks a lot, but in reality that's 4/5 out from the matchday squad and 6/7 in, who would all be quality improvements to the squad.
  2. Not the start I was hoping for... Can you bench zabaleta and play Van Der Wiel instead? That first goal was unforgivable
  3. Looks like the increase to 11 fixtures a week has meant me vs @Izzy Muzzett has been cut off, Des...
  4. Formation: 433 Gk: Casillas Lb: Luis Lcb: Howedes Rcb: Azpilicueta Rb: Zabaleta Lcm: Fabregas Rcm: Alli Cam: Hamsik Lw: Brahimi Rw: Di Maria St: Costa Subs: Rico, Fazio, Van Aanholt, Wilshere, Bernard, Morata, Belotti Captain: Fabregas Penalties: Fabregas Whoever for the rest.
  5. Said the exact same thing. Same old from England - dominant in possession against a weaker opposition (which the NL are, currently) , without really creating many good chances, and winning by a small margin. Will be shown up as soon as we start playing the big sides like Germany, France etc in actual competitive matches.
  6. Based on this match so far, I think I'm genuinely more excited for @Des.'s foxestalk league than I am for watching England at the World Cup...
  7. I figure I can't lose so long as I've got the ref quite literally on my side...
  8. Team Name: Xenit St Petersburg (FC Xenit) Badge: https://imgur.com/TvKhrE6 Stadium: The XXX Arena GK kit: Bright yellow, black shorts. Home Kit: Blue shirt (same blue as Zenit), white sash&shorts Away Kit: White shirt, blue sash&shorts 3rd Kit: this sorta thing: https://imgur.com/a/vo2t7 for the top, then orange shorts
