He's better than what we have

Willy 25 September, 2020 11:49
Tempting for the banter potential, but I'm not sure what he adds on the pitch other than getting on the end of things around the box. We need creativity and have enough finishers

Willy, Son, Kane and Ali combine much better than our front 3. Ali is a very good passer and has energy.

Can we do better? Yes he will cost a lot. Do we have someone better? No. Willian comes close but he is too old to last games. Saka too young and still pretty raw.

Nope, no consistency to his game, red hot one moment then long barren runs the next. Granted he's still young and was probably overplayed when he was younger, but the pattern of recent years is a downward one.
Watching the Spurs documentary, he comes across as a bit of a billy big ballocks as well.

Must admit I wouldn't want him.
Think he would be more trouble than it's worth.

I'll take him for the right price. He has a strong engine. He can create. He is an accurate passer. He can run at defences with the ball and draw fouls in the penalty area. winking smiley He can score goals from midfield which is what our midfield currently lacks. This might be a Sol Campbell moment to p!ss of Spuds. I doubt Spuds will sell to Arsenal.

It would be hilarious to nab him. But I don't think he is an Arteta type of guy. Mourinho is giving him the Ozil treatment.

Re: Dele Ali.
Jonny Bravo 25 September, 2020 16:24
I doubt the Spuds would shed too many tears if he left for a decent price. Kane on the other hand, if we wanted to do a Sol Mark 2 that's where it would hurt the most. No chance Levy would let that happen though.

He's good and would upgrade our team. Cuntish attitude though. I hate him.

Re: Dele Ali.
TheReMarkable 25 September, 2020 17:22
I don’t rate him at all. I think he’s massively overrated by many.

Re: Dele Ali.
SuperRob 25 September, 2020 17:24
Too injury prone, too inconsistent. Talented player though. But no thanks

Re: Dele Ali.
Ares 25 September, 2020 17:35
There is probably a 15 to 11 placed premier league team which would be thick enough to buy him.

West Ham for example.

He hates us.
He hasn't done much in the last 18mths at Spudz

Self sustainable is a word that rich people with short arms and deep pockets use.

Flava 25 September, 2020 21:47
He’s a fantastic athlete with an eye for a goal. I’m glad his career is stalling because he’s a horrible little b.ugger.

Great headline and will get people clicking on the story.

I wouldn’t watch Arsenal if he signed. There, I’ve said it now

Re: Dele Ali.
Kalela 25 September, 2020 23:45
He has gotten a little lazy in the last few years. Still though he adds goals from midfield. Would definitely sign him for the right price.

What does he do?

Re: Dele Ali.
Bergmars 26 September, 2020 10:34
The English media and pundits built him into a world class player as they have with many but as usual it doesn't last.
