is that why hes not been playing much or injured? are they pissed with him?

Think it might be why, they bought that young lad in from Holland who’s supposedly a similar player and Harry Wilson on loan so they are probably looking to the future now, trying to bed those two in - especially if they think they can get the latter on a permanent next summer. 

 

If they do wanna sign him then they’d be stupid not to get some money for Fraser in Jan.

I don’t think he is overated, more over regraded/lauded because he’s honest, hard working and comes across as a good lad. I’m a big fan, but don’t think he is near our best 11 anymore, and not if we want to compete at the top end of the table. 

I recall that in the early part of the Great Season we got quite a few goals by Mark A cutting back on to his right foot, and swinging in a diagonal cross for Mahrez bearing down on goal from an inside right position. Those goals dried up later in the season - presumably other teams got wise to the ploy. I would like to see it tried again with Ricardo playing the Riyad role.

Why waste probably the best right back in the league by playing him as a winger? Simple solution is buy a winger good enough to start rather than settle for Albrighton who clearly isn’t the answer or move arguably our best player out of position.

That was when we won the league, the goals you are probably thinking about are the 2 carbon copy goals he scored vs West Brom. During the great escape season, Albrighton barely played under Pearson until around March time when we went 3-5-2 and he was the right wing back with great success.

Wingers - Realistic options:

  • Yannick Carrasco - (Dalian Yifang)
  • Domenico Berradi (Sassuolo)
  • Hwang Hee-Chan (Salzburg) (Might be too inexperienced right now)
  • Jonathan Bamba (Lille)
  • Rafa Silva (Benfica)
  • Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth)
  • Everton Cebolinha (Gremio) (Might be too much of a gamble to adapt from South American football)

I'd like to try a loan deal for Foden. The guy needs game time or will never hit his potential, surely he and Man City see this? We'd be the perfect club for him at this moment in time!

But Praet can’t even get a regular game for us? Where would foden? I’d say CM is our strongest area.

He impressed me no end vs Genk and Liverpool, I watched the first game out of interest to see Samatta but Salzburg were unreal. I thought he was more of a versatile forward like Perez than a traditional winger. They have another impressive player of similar style in Takumi Minamino

I was under the impression he could play on a wing too, much like Maddison (hopefully better than him on the wing though).

But I thought it was common knowledge that Maddison wasn’t effective on the wing. I’d take Foden if Man City were looking to sell him but I wouldn’t want him on loan.

Yeah it is common knowledge but i'm sure Foden can't be as bad as him on the wing. I'd love to sign him but can't see them letting the poor lad go, even though he will probably never get the game time there.

This topic intrigued me and I did some snooping... Neres is getting benched by Promes at Ajax, has been most of the season. If this continues, I think we could snag him for considerably less than previously quoted prices during the winter... We all know how good he is, just been benched off a small period of bad form which Promes has capitalised on. Anywhere from €30-40 million would be a good deal

Really gutted we missed out on Promes, but if we could somehow get Neres then it would be incredible. I said yesterday, I can also see Leon Bailey being more attainable after a mediocre season last year and a few injury problems so far could see them cash in as they will exit the CL bottom of the group.

Bailey seems more like a one season wonder with each passing year though :(

How is Suso looking this season? Just checked his outline stats

Games Goal Assists

8           0       1

But haven`t watched him, so not really sure.

Seems Wolves and West Ham are "considering" offers..

Maybe he's not had the support he could have done with? He was in the same Genk team as Ndidi and both looked phenomenal and that they could make it at a bigger club. Ndidi has more than lived up to expectations for us. As have other players that have come from Belgian football.

Milan have been shocking all season and have already fired one manager. Most people seem to think he has an attitude problem, but he was their player of the season in the past, and Rodgers knows him well having given him his debut. He'd be a punt, but so is everyone. Even Perez who was "Premier League proven" has not lived up to expectations - yet. Hopefully he still comes good.

As I told you all during the summer, he's continuing his awful form:nono:

 

He is very good at about 3 things, and very bad at everything else, including tracking back, workrate, linking up, adapting his play, and he has a primadonna attitude, seemingly. He's just not great

I am getting a strong sense that you are not his agent....

I've seen a few Milan fans slag him off.
