My only issue with Willian is are we signing another player who's best years are behind him I'd rather we go find the "next Willian" the one who's still only 25 and ripping it up at Shakthar or wherever and ready to step up to the big time.That would be a hell of a signing and makes so so much sense. Jose loved him at Chelsea, he's a right sided attacker and he's such a good player with great pace.
I'd go one further and saw we should've been in for him when he was at Shakthar he was a quality player back then when they had a really good side.I like Willian but I don’t want to see us go after him. If we were going to it should have been two seasons ago when Mourinho came
Why not just play Bale on the right considering that is where he plays for Madrid?I'm not his biggest fan.
I'd rather risk Bale and move Sanchez out right, but that all seems risky, player with dodgy injuries and a player playing out of his favourite position
I read a couple of articles where he says he doesn't like playing off the right, but yes it's a possibility, but like moving Sanchez there, it's square peg round hole.Why not just play Bale on the right considering that is where he plays for Madrid?
Sanchez isn't going to play on the right I think we can give up on that now he's either playing on the left or in the centre.
I think the right side was Bale's best position because it meant he could come in on his left foot and shoot but I think now he's basically a centre forward/number 10 because he hasn't got the energy to play on the wing and do the defensive work.I read a couple of articles where he says he doesn't like playing off the right, but yes it's a possibility, but like moving Sanchez there, it's square peg round hole.
I totally agree but with the money around and the need for instant success - it doesn’t lend well to throwing in youngsters.We seem to seriously overthink things when it comes to youngsters.
That lad got a chance because Clyne was out injured for the whole season and he took it the manager has stuck with him because he hasn’t got much choice it’s how Rashford got his break all the strikers got injured he got a chance and took it.Which is why I think Sanchez and Willian at the age they are is perfect, it gives the young lads two maybe three years to develop, gain experience, have a few loans, and be ready when Sanchez/Willian are 32/33 and need to be replaced.
Look at Alexander Arnold, if he was at United he would not have had a sniff now, Klopp trusted him, allowed him a few bad games without the world going mad, he is now a guaranteed starter in the Champions League Final and gong to the World Cup, not every youngster needs 17 loans and 8 years to develop, some of them just need a chance and a bit of trust.
It’s a new world when it comes to transfer fees.£50m apparently. How can a 29 year old be worth that much?
