It's a Dead Man's Party!

Zomp said:Demichelis in the midfield has disaster written all over it. Say what you want about Luiz, but he is mobile enough to do some damage. I've not seen much of Matic but Ramirez is a stud who will run circles around Demichelis. Yaya is going to need a HUGE game.
Yes. I went from quietly confident to not sure I even want to have the recording on my DVR when I get home. Thankfully it's at the Etihad, but missing out on Aguero, Fernandinho, and Nasri for a match this critical is not ideal. Just too thin in CM, an injury to Yaya or Fernandinho was always going to be an issue, but I didn't expect it to happen a few days after the window closed. Like you said, Yaya will need to be immense today.Zomp said:Demichelis in the midfield has disaster written all over it. Say what you want about Luiz, but he is mobile enough to do some damage.

A tactical master class by Jose.
Arsenal — An owl. It can seem scary when you hear or see it in the night, but it never does anything and eventually you wonder if it is actually alive or just made of wood.
Fulham — A turkey? I don't know. Not all of these are going to be good.
Liverpool — A well-rested Chihuahua that could run through the legs of the horses, but only because it isn't playing in the Champions League, which means nothing it does is impressive. And next season the stress of fixture congestion will leave it hairless and shaking.
Manchester United — A once graceful deer that froze in the headlights and got hit by eight cars and now has a bad limp and doesn't know where it is going.
Newcastle — A French zebra that sniffed too much glue and now has mental trouble.
Norwich City — Canary in an empty methane tank.
Tottenham — Under Villas-Boas, a flock of headless chickens. After Villas-Boas, something smarter and good. Maybe a cougar.

Have to at this point, there is nothing to be salvaged there. I would assume they bring in an experienced upgrade to rotate with Lukaku and maybe hold onto Eto'o for another yearfletcherpost said:You reckon they'll offload Torres in the off season?
Snakebauer007 said:Just read my first Lukaku for Barkley transfer rumor, maybe not that crazy? Barkley would be a nice long term replacement for Lampard, and seems like a Jose type player; we need to start adding English players with so many older ones moving on soon, Shaw and Barkley is a good way to start. Maybe Lukaku isn't a Jose type player? Not sure what there dynamic is, but I know it got off to a rocky start.
