So I watch this show on Netflix that everyone is going on about. Its called The Playbook. And a decent proportion of it is Jose extolling the genius of being the first guy to play Ronaldo through the middle, even gloated at his audacity at leaving 3 no.9s out.

So yeah, while Jose will want another striker, and i want one, and i think we'll sign one, let's please all be aware there's no guarantee he'll play the guy ahead of Son, Bale or Kane. All Jose wants is a tall man for long ball 80 minutes onwards; Fellaine. The quite painful thing is that Llorente would have been perfect. A big bastard to occupy the defence while the scuttlers do the damage.

Given the incredibly low bar of signing a tall man, and Jose's confidence that we'll do it, and the confidence of every itk, I'm relaxed.

Son can play up front against Chelsea, they play a high line and can't defend.

Buy a fucking striker to help Kane and Jose ffs
Llorente was allowed to leave over a year ago and has still not been replaced

With this horrendous fixture schedule we should have 100% already brought in another striker to help carry some of the load in this incredibly difficult period

Our season could be over before we’ve even really started and god forbid H turns his ankle playing more minutes than he should be in such a short space of time
Yeah it does seem a bit reckless to be going into this run of games with only kane I know son can play through the middle but I don’t think he suits a Mourinho team in that role
 

Who’s our next manager?

Haven’t we got an under 23 team any more. Surely there’s a striker there we can use if urgently needed.

Can't see any of our key players playing 2 games in 2 days.

I actually loved mourinho until the Carneiro incident. And his dour time at United. When I coached in my 20s I had unofficial biographies of him and studied his communication style. I loved him. I was an inter fan before I was a spurs fan and his CL victory in 2010 is still my favourite campaign in club football.

Lol I’m guessing you’re banned from the transfer forum? Otherwise you’d understand
I am banned. I don’t know why. I had access at the end of one window but it was removed by the start of the next. Whatever!

Anyway. 1995-2010 had more underachievement for inter than overachievement. Except ironically with Mou at the end. Some magical players though!

Stéphane Dalmat. What. A. Player.

On champ man.

When the bale links came up everyone changed their avatar to bale credit to @FibreOpticJesus and it worked so now avatars get changed to everyone’s latest wish, mine being škriniar

I loved Van Basten as a kid so prefer AC

I can’t believe so many have fallen for the Delli Alli scapegoat story.

Our big problems have been in midfield and defence.

Jose wants the money to buy a striker. This would be a terrible long term decision in my opinion.

Dele struggles a bit as fewer and fewer clubs now play with a no 10 position which is where Dele plays best.

If 4-3-3 is our way forward. I’m not sure where he fits in? Wide forward?

Jose needs to change his shit tactics or fuck off! Why did we play like that in the second half?? We weren’t 3-0 up to play like that, idiotic

We now have a far too good of a squad to play shit like that
