    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    Of course I would like to go for a young prospect like De Ketelare, but 40m is a lot of money and with Dybala you have someone who can either do well or you can sell him if he doesn't. It's a risk worth taking if you are on a budget and you need to spend on other areas.

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    Why so? Its an improvement on last year and I was already satisfied by what we had last year. I personally would like but if we get Renato then we are one CM too many with an alt Kessie Dybala can play as a AM in our formation, dont be ridiculous. An in form Dybala is a very strong player who...

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    If we get Ziyech and Dybala we are automatically 50% a better team. You dont need to think too much about costs and bad omen. If Milan can get those two to play good football for the club then we are a very good team. Ziyech is better than Messias and Saelemakers combined Dybala is better...

    De Ketelaere looks like an excellent player, I think we can get him for 25-30m or some fancy formula. The way he moves reminds me a little bit of Van Persie, I like the way he traps the ball it always seems to be in the right direction and at the right distance from his body. He would be nice at...

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    We could significantly improve our team and especially our attack with low cost options (including low salaries) Origi - free Dybala - free Ziyech - loan with option/obligation Renato - 15-20m Then we will need to improve the defence perhaps with some young Italian players to be within the...

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    I always liked Acerbi, I think I had him as my nickname once. He is a good defender, good passing, he can man mark, I think he often gets the better of Ibra. He is not slow despite his size and I think since he recovered from his illness he became more self confident which was missing when he...

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    Acerbi is a very good defender, the people who say that he is fodder will eat their words. They remind me of the PioliOut wankers who are acting like they loved our hero coach from day one. I am totally fine with Tomori Kalulu as starters and experienced players like Kjaer and Acerbi as subs.

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    If we end up with Origi, Ziyech or Asensio, Vertout, Acerbi, De Ketelare.. I would be content. It would mean that we addressed the problems from last season with a limited budget. I hope we can renew the contracts of Leao, Bennacer and whoever else is nearing its completion.

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    We were never going to compete with Newcastles +40m bid for Botman. No way we will spend that much for a CB who is not an established player. I don't think we ever spent more than 50m for a player. Better to look elsewhere now, stick to the model of the last few years and do not forget to add a...

    Dybala is a CF in the same way as Etoo, Owen or Saviola were. I think he stopped developing when they tried him in different positions. At Palermo he was a CF and his main skill is his control and finishing.

    It seems that Moncada needs to up his game this mercato

    What the hell is going on? Why isn't Maldini confirmed already?

    The Rumour Commode XXXVII: Mercato Dyspnea

    Think of the best partner for Tonali in midfield? I would want someone with Kessies profile, a solid shield in front of the defence, more than a dynamic presser like Bennacer. If Bennacer wants to leave then Pobega can be his replacement (a bit different in style, but he is closer in his role...

    Official Basketball thread(NBA; EuroLeague etc)

    I gotta admit that Steph Curry is really good. He is like the Messi of basketball, it's annoying that he resembles the type of game that I don't want to identify with but the guy was celebrating the ring halfway through the game and he backed it up. Celtics have a really good team and this can...
