    You should. It's pretty helpful.

    Koulibaly is good at everything and has outstanding character/intelligence. Why would you need a CB to keep him "in check"?

    Albiol's gunna be 34 this fall and was never really a great defender. Manolas can help Koulibaly ...you know, defend.

    He has 6 yellows the last two seasons. 0 reds. Your scouting report blows.

    You're in the CL, we aren't. We need to make some dough.

    We sold Radja to Inter, and we're about to sell them Dzeko. Think.

    Manolas - K2 is a scudetto winning CB pairing.

    A lot of talk of high profile signing (James and Lozano), but little of sales

    I find it hard to believe. Very unlikely of ADL to spend big money without at least one big sale.

    My guess would be Allan of the higher profile guys, if I had to choose one sale.

    No idea how much truth there is to this, but if Florentino's idea of reducing James' price tag is by trying to sell you Llorente, Hernandez, and Ceballos.... you gotta take it.

    All three should be players you're interested in. Seriously. It's so crazy that I can't actually believe it's true.

    Madrid's got an insanely big roster at the moment, and everyone knows they need to sell guys to reduce the squad size and bring in money... but if they're just gunna tack-on 3 talents like that? Dude, take that shit --unless he's asking for something insane, of course.

    Diawara has been nothing but a bust for us at Napoli.

    which is precisely why I want him. It's called buying low, my man.

    I don’t know what you see in him. Sarri didn’t use him much and neither did Carlo.

    I see a kid who was doing shit like this at age 18 in Serie A:



    Look, Sarri's never been known to play youngsters, and really in Sarri's system, he needed to play in Jorginho's position. And simply put, he's not Jorginho. That's not his game, and never will be.

    As for Carlo, I dunno. I expected more to be honest. But, you guys have gone with a 4-4-2 a lot, and have a pretty damn good midfield. I can understand why he struggled to break in.

    His skill-set is perfect for Fonseca, imo. And I think he'd get a ton of game-time playing as the pivot, frankly. We have precisely 0 natural pivots on the roster, atm. And no one like Diawara.

    If Diawara had fulfilled his promise with you guys, we wouldn't be able to get him- simply put. This is taking a shot on someone I believe has a ton of potential and fits tactically.

    He has a release clause.

    In my view James and Lozano both come only if Insigne leaves. If Allan goes then we need central midfielder.

    Sarri benched Jorginho for a while and played Diawara. He played both CL games against Real Madrid. He is still very young.

    That is the point. He did not play under Sarri because we had Jorginho. Ancelotti wanted to sell Jorginho. Jorginho and Diawara do not suit his system.

    It would be a big mistake IMO

    Ancelotti has also said that k2 and Allan are two players that Napoli must keep at all cost

    It very well could be that all talk of fan displeasure has finally gotten to ADL and he’s decided to put his best foot forward for next year.

    Our average season attendance dropped by approximately ten thousand last season. Something has to be done

    I see him going for James. That would bring the fans back. I don’t want us to lose Allen he is our engine in the midfield.

    Yeah and A certain Algerian is going become Messi.

    He lacks consistency but I don’t think he is going to become anything special.

    Albiol has been a great player for us but after Sarriball went out the door, we don’t really need him. That was even clear last season. I have no idea how anyone can complain about us potentially signing Manolas.

    Lozano is close to being made official and I can only assume that Napoli are going to push Insigne out the door. Or else how can Napoli afford all these signings?

    Selling Insigne would be the least detrimental sale for this team.

    Allan is a much harder player to replace. A lot of pundits are saying that Veretout is the replacement for Allan, but I don’t see it. He’s become a leader on this team

    Like most sales, it comes to price.

    Personally, I think with the style Allan plays, he's probably got 2 more years of his prime left. If you want to wait one more season before you cash-out fine, but if PSG offers me something stupid, I'd take it. A lot of big clubs like Allan, and for good reason.

    Veretout is solid, but he's not Allan. I would agree.

    If you guys wanna go all-out for the Scudetto, I get that too. But you'll need more than Manolas, James and Lozano to do it, imo.

    My hope is we get James and a few pieces. Something along the lines of what happened when we got Gonzalo.

    We won't. James would be a loan initially.

    We need a defender with Albiol gone and we have several players to sell. Manolas 4M and Di Lorenzo 1.2M is just 1M more than Albiol and Hysaj salaries.

    What is important is to make sure we have some midfield backup and a get a top striker.
