Thing is they have a squad of average across the board players. Only player I would want would be a fully fit Antonio and he will never be fully fit. Rice is ok but not really anything different to Dier, the only others are the unproven Bowen and Soucek.
Am I the only one that thinks Antonio is completly shit?
 
Comment
He occasionally plays well against us though in their Cup Final but fitness does seem to be a problem
He might have scored an odd goal here or there Baz but that doesn't make him any good.

Whenever I've seen him play (including against us) he couldn't trap a wet bag of cement. He runs fast for about 3, max 4 sprints and that's him done for the game, gassed to fuck. Hold-up play = non existent. Bringing others into play = non-existent. Running the channels is what he does (and best when he doesn't have a football actually at his feet on the account he has hardly any control over the ball) and I can name 20 players better than him in PL alone.

Reminds me of that handy fella at Wolves. Can’t recall his name. Massive winger that looks like a boxer. Anyway, I think Antonio could be good if he had someone to train him how to play football.

He's one of those players where it's best to let him actually have the ball. The only real threat he can pose is to attempt to be physical with an oppo defender 1v1 when running, the aim is for him to win a freekick or cause the oppo defender to fuck up (fall over, miss kick the ball or some such). I smart defender will just let him have the ball and stand him up, with how they attack as well there will probably be none of his teammates within 20yrs.

Antonio is more or less on the same level as Moura, a somewhat decent player for a midtable side.
Lucas actually has technical ability on the ball. There are limitations to his game, some of this is amplified by not using him to his strengths. But he's far superior footballer than Antonio.

I doubt whether one or the other would overall more to a team, they both wouldn't start for a team like Leicester, that's for sure. Newcastle, Palace is their level.

I'm not a fan of how we use Lucas, I want to see him with the ball at his feet running and committing defenders (both from deep and against a low block defence), have someone close to him to pick up the 2nd ball when dispossessed.

I thought that you were talking about N’Dombele for a minute 😉

"Top" premier league club, so I doubt it.
The Sun.... They'll no doubt sex the article up the best way they can.

They'd call Bournemouth a top team on the basis that they were top 5 in August once if it suited the article they wanted to write.

Is this them?
IF only.. It's allegedly Burnley.. Not sure how or why they will be in danger, their wage bill and transfer policy is very low end.

They have actually made a video of their "Unforgettable 2016" season.. apparently history was made.

Just to save you watching this unforgettable season, they finished 7th, got knocked out of the preliminary rounds of Europa by Astra fucking goo goo, knocked out of the league cup in the third round, knocked out of the FA cup in the sixth round.. But it was unforgettable and history was made..:mourhandlaugh:
