Good win today.

But one minor note, after watching Fred for the last few months, is Herrera better at the Fred role than Fred?

{Ed001's Note - my mother is better than Fred at the Fred role, unless the Fred role is making Lukaku look like a player with first class control? I actually just uploaded a player profile on Fred as I have been watching a fair bit of him lately, just waiting for Ed033 to put the links up but early peek for you Danny: Fred profile

The fall was pretty great.

Honestly, I’m still looking for reasons why Pep and Jose were after him too. Even if his control wasn’t so poor, I can’t see what he’s really good at as a player. Nothing stands out, positively, about his game. Herrera is much much better than him, so why waste the £50m when a top class cb would have made a way bigger difference to our season?

{Ed001's Note - I honestly can't explain it. I keep looking to see something in him and just can't either. I like to give things a player is good at as well as weaknesses, but I was reaching for something that wasn't there with Fred!}

A lot on the page seem to rate but at this point I'm still not sure . Early days tho.

I think it was ed2 who said Fred was a waste of money at 50m and we should have waited a bit longer in the summer and could have gotten better. It is a rarity that ed2 posts about anyone but when he does they are usually spot on. So another poor bit of business from us it looks.
I genuinely believe one of the major reason for us buying him was to stop City getting their target.

{Ed001's Note - you would have been better paying the 50m to ensure City got him!}

Seems true Esq. But maybe the Messiah would work his magic with Fred too and he will be the best thing since slice bread.

As you are doing profiles can I request some more ed1? Vecino and Brozovic from Inter.


{Ed001's Note - of course mate always glad to have more to do. Gives me an excuse to watch games.}

Ed, if you don't mind, what is your take on Herrera as a player, and if assuming he is better than Fred, why not to play him.

Ed002 mentioned last year that there was some issue with josse, was this sorted out?

Thanks in an advance.

{Ed001's Note - I like Herrera, he has that bit of devil about him you need, though he goes down a little too easy for my liking. He is very good at breaking up play and getting forward in support.}

03 Nov 2018 17:15:44
Interesting points ed. Personally I quite like the fact that fred is looking to play forward. You are right though that he misplaces far too many passes. I’m not going to give up on him just yet. I think there is a player there but I agree that he hasn’t been great. Would you please be able to do a profile on lautaro Martinez of inter? Think he could be very special. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - added him to the list mate.}

03 Nov 2018 17:37:55
Much appreciated ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

03 Nov 2018 18:28:35
Thanks Ed.

Would profile on Herrera be possible as well?


{Ed001's Note - added him to the list.}

Actually Inter have a decent team. Some very talented bunch of players and I think Spaletti is quite good too. They beat Genoa 5_0 today and Gagliardini scored 2 goals. Have you seen much of him ed1 and what do you make of him. I like the looks of him from the very limited times I have seen but not seen that much.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen much of him at all. Inter's problem was they had a good team but it was not working as a team. Lots of good individuals players but no plan to harness them. Spaletti is very good at getting players to play together usually, from what I have seen, so they should be right in the mix.}

Agree deependra I can see inter and Napoli fighting it out for second place. Politano has really surprised me this season. And their defence of de vrij and skriniar is extremely strong. De vrij on a free in the summer should have been an option for us. Although I do have concerns about his pace.
