    I think that is the most obvious one. I guess we will see how much that means to them.

    My whole thing is Levy has already pissed away his value, he should just take the €10mil and be happy. Imo.

    PSG is willing to give us more money but I don't think Eriksen is keen on them. Not sure how to leverage their interest into making Inter budge.

    You are an Arsenal fan, no? Why do you care? He is going to try to get the most he can for him. As far as pissing it away. Hard to look at it that way. Should they have sold him before they made the CL Finals?

    Just being a fan of the sport. I find transfer stories as interesting as the actual matches sometimes.

    Reports from Alfredo Pedulla, not sure of tier, that Inter have gone up to 15m+3m in bonuses for Eriksen. Further from Gazzetta dello Sport that we agreed to such a figure. Fair enough for me.

    I think he's done well given the situation, was never on the squad to start all these big games. I know Hugo adds a voice to the field too though, that's where I feel we've been missing him most

    The thing about Gazza that gets me is how many times he just watches the ball go in goal, which to me is a sign of lack of anticipation. He just doesn't read the game like Hugo does. He may be as good a shot stopper when he reads the ball, but he reads way fewer.

    Yeah his shot anticipation definitely isn't on Hugo's level but his reactions and ability to stop shots at close range has been. He's made several point blank saves that have kept us in games. Only to later give up a goal, but those aren't all really his fault, at least not directly. I.e. the Liverpool game

    His positioning is stunningly poor at times. This is a pretty good breakdown of all his goals allowed from Reddit.

    Yes, I didn't have to think or analyze too much to have that opinion. His positioning and instincts are poor. It is understandable as I have always been told that the reason keepers get better with age is from so much repetition and adjusting their positioning over time. regardless, he is a bad solution for us right now.

    Let the record show that our XI are: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen (C), Tanganga (ON THE LEFT, SO VERSATILE), Winks, Lo Celso, Dele, Lamela, Son, Lucas.

    Gedson makes the bench alongside Eriksen, Dier, Sess, so on.

    Sloppy weird shit from Aurier. Made a poor decision to cut back when he knew the man was on his back, then two footed leaving your feet slide. As much as he got the ball rather than the man, it's just not particularly advisable.

    At first I was like sure foul on Tanganga but after watching the replay he didn’t initiate the contact.

    It was an accidental slip. A foul, but the card was ridiculous.

    Eh, I'm just happy we weren't the first ones to have the ref go to the monitor to check for a possible red, I didn't see if he was last man back or anything.

    No red. Just a technical issue with VAR.
