    I think DeJong can be far better than Fernandihno. That's my point.

    Yes potentially, I have to agree.

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    Apart from his tackling. Which is flimsy at best. Tackling is a skill you have that is very hard to teach. It requires strength, timing and above all heart.

    He'll fuck off to Spain I would imagine where he'll flourish.

    Our squad is nearly complete.

    Next summer I see minimal activity, perhaps just De Jong in and Zinchenko, Diaz and Bravo out. Maybe a wildcard like Ryan Sessegnon to cover the loss of Zinch and Diaz?

    GK: Ederson, Muric (Gunn buy back?)
    RB: Walker, Danilo,
    CB:Stones, Laporte, Kompany, Otamendi
    LB: Mendy, Delph, Sessegnon*
    DM/6: De Jong*, Fernandinho
    AM/8: KDB, Bernardo, Foden, D.Silva, Gundogan
    Wingers: Sterling, Mahrez, Sane, Sesegnon*
    CF: Aguero, Jesus

    No. He’s definitely got legs.

    Only “weak spot” (relatively) is Walker who isn’t great at making or executing correct attacking decisions.

    Obvious again to me when watching England. Stones, Delph and Sterling look obvious Pep players these days. Walker could be from any team in the PL...except the club he actually plays for.

    But I like him and he can defend and it’s a squad game, etc etc etc.

    It's a shame Danilo always seems to be injured, would love to see what Pep could do with him if he had an extended run in the team.

    I dont think there is any chance this going to happen but I would love to get both De Jong and Ndombele. I think with KDB and Bernardo with the back up of course of David Silva and Dinho we will have the best midfield in the world

    Well, I cannot confirm or deny he would have denied it if there was nothing there.
