Loved him from the first day, though I expect Tottenham or Chelsea will sign him at some point. I think that commentators said he was a converted winger when he made his debut last season, he certainly played like it in the beginning but he's now playing as a full-fledged right back. I only wonder how good his attacking game will be, he must be a nightmare to defend against. He looks as focused as a brain surgeon when he's up against the winger he's supposed to be marking and his defensive stats are out of this world for a young player!
came here to post the same thing, essentially, though the city aspect wasn't on my mindOk. This may have been mentioned before but as I've not been on here that much over the previous year and a half due to numerous issues and severe mental health problems I don't have the patience to read through about a trillion pages to catch up on the thread.
However it's a point I was discussing with a friend of mine that City are desperate foe someone/anyone who can cover the Fernandinho sized hole in their midfield whenever he's missing and Sarri's inexplicable desire to play Kante in a position different to the one where he's one of the best in the world at. Personally I think that transfer would be perfect for both City and Kante.
However if there's the slightest chance he's available - and given how Sarri views him I honestly think a good enough offer and Kante would be sold - then he could be amazing if we're playing double pivots. Ffs, he'd be amazing if we let him be both double pivots.
We have a lot of strength in depth for our central positions. I have spent years on here 'bigging up' Henderson and a few others but if we really wanted to go 4-2-3-1 and ensure we had an amazing defensive base to build that on (given our very forward thinking full backs) I would be overjoyed to see Fabinho and Kante together mopping up anything that comes their way whilst the rest of the squad would have the confidence to play knowing we'd a security system so good that Ocean's Eleven couldn't break through it.
Milner isn't a RB. What today showed was that we need to strengthen the FB position on both sides now that it looks like Clyne wants to leave.Zaha would do the business here, he must be a nightmare to play against. Fair enough it was Milner but he showed him up and Milner isn't shit.
Well we got;There's normally a reason why a player continues to play for a team fighting relegation
He's a bit limited whenever I've watched him. I would prefer Trent long-term with Hoever backing him up and I think that's what we'll see.
I think Hoever will follow a similar progression to Joe, moving into the centre fairly soonish as that's his natural position.He's a bit limited whenever I've watched him. I would prefer Trent long-term with Hoever backing him up and I think that's what we'll see.
He's just turned 17 though, don't see him as a LFC CB any time soon. I think he'll learn his trade at full back much the same as Carra did. Is Wan Bissaka that good? I think we can do better than him Is Hoever tall enough to be a CB anyway?I think Hoever will follow a similar progression to Joe, moving into the centre fairly soonish as that's his natural position.
