    Who will Jose sell in the Summer ?

    Don't get me wrong, I want it to be largely gutted as well but I just don't see it happening. That's all I meant. Ruben Dias is a CB tho, not a RB. Aarons would be my choice at RB as he's young, english and likely to be not too expensive when Norwich get relegated. Would very much like Dias...

    Who will Jose sell in the Summer ?

    Way too much turnover. Whilst I agree that we could/should look to sell Serge and Davies, we'd then likely be looking at having to add FOUR fullbacks, 2 on each side, and that's just not realistic. We're going to have to take a somewhat methodical approach to this. We can't just get rid of 6-8...

    Who will Jose sell in the Summer ?

    Potential Squad in Summer of 2020 with players removed that I think might be sold/released: GK: Hugo Lloris | Paulo Gazzaniga | Youth or Veteran GK RB: NEED | Serge Aurier CB: Toby Alderweireld | Eric Dier | Davison Sanchez | Japhet Tanganga | NEED LB: NEED | Ben Davies DM: NEED | Oliver...

    Who will Jose sell in the Summer ?

    In fairness, Norwich are at the bottom because they stick absolutely to their style of football and haven't got any kind of pragmatic backup plan. When it has all clicked for Norwich they've been great to watch, beaten Man City and a few others, at home and it's not because their defence is...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - Groundhog Day you say? Groundhog Day you say?

    100% this. I'm not joking, after the loss to Norwich I saw fans on twitter saying things like: "The club is dying" "We're finished as a football club" I mean honestly, the melodramatic overreactions are off the scale at the moment.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Really pleased I came into this thread. I was expecting a lot of negativity and overreactions but this has restored my faith that our fanbase isn't completely losing it. There is no doubt that last night was the low point of the season but we have to have some perspective and be able to see the...

    The Troy Parrott Sketch

    He doesn't give that impression on Insta. He often just posts pretty standard stuff showing love to his family etc on his story and football stuff on his main posts. No pics of him posing infront of cars or throwing up gang signs and all that shit. His bio says "grateful everyday". I think he...

    Well said. The easiest thing in the world after any loss is to lose your shit and be negative. The harder task is to see through the result and identify what was good, if anything, and try to understand why we lost, particularly when progress has still been made. Being ahead twice and losing...

    The Troy Parrott Sketch

    I'm not sure there's zero evidence. He played in pre-season against teams like Juve, Man Utd and Real Madrid and didn't look out of place by any stretch. I know it's pre-season but still, it would've been clear if he couldn't cut it at that level. He's also played for the Ireland national team...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Nail on head right here. You've summed up exactly how I'm feeling about us at the moment. Expectations needed to be low since Jose took over, not because he's not a great manager, that's not up for debate, but moreso because the squad was still unbalanced and had gaping holes when he took it...

    Match Threads Chelsea vs Spurs - Match Thread

    It's a fair point but did we tactially fail if we don't have any competent CDM's to counter their attacking midfielders? Did we tactically fail if we don't have a striker that can hold the ball up/link the midfield and the attack/score goals. Kane would have done all of those things. I mean...

    Team v Leipzig

    Tanganga will come back in as much due to his pace than anything. Sanchez and Toby will play as well. RBL have pace with Werner & Sabitzer so we need to be able to match that. Tanganga is perfect for this game IMO. This game comes down to whether we can manage to get goals despite having no...

    New Nike Kits 20-21

    Blimey, I hope not! I mean I'm all for an original design but there's just WAY too much going on with that shirt. Hopefully it's just one of the designs that's been pitched but not been chosen.

    One of the strangest games I've seen in a long time. We were truly awful for the first 70 mins. Playing some sort of 3-5-2 formation that Mourinho seemed to suggest was due to the lack of personnel available. Not sure I agree with that tbh but I get that we were missing key players due to...
