N’Zonzi was going for big money just a season ago and was playing for the France WC winning team has he really got that bad? I haven’t really seen him play much since, but that’s some decline otherwise.

Moyes has stated that we’re battling against injuries at the moment which makes wonder if we actually have a club doctor
Can't blame Anderson's one on the club. It was that little twerp in Sheffield Utd's midfield.

Dunno his name, or what he like defensively
This looks like a job application for chief scout at West Ham.

Millwall's LB looks pretty good to me. Puts in a crunching tackle, bombs up and down their left flank for 90 minutes, no problem and doesn't get fagged out after 60 minutes either, keeps going right to the end. Dunno his name, or what he like defensively, but he puts in a ****ing wicked cross, to the point they trust him with all left side corner kicks. I think he is defo worth a look
If you're talking about Mahlon Romeo he's a bit lightweight and doesn't always track back after making his forward runs. Another Masuaku for comparison in my view.

There is no apostrophe in Nzonzi.

Just saying.

Very difficult to compare two very different eras but if we're talking goals Pele has about 200 more of them than Messi in virtually the same amount of time.

It makes him better. I think Carlos S’Anchez would be a better option than the other Colombian midfielder in our squad also.

We were linked in March 2019 because SURPRISE his contract was expiring imminently and he seemed to be available "for free" but than we dropped our interest since he renewed his contract with MFC. Classic DS scouting.

Pele was amazingly accurate with shots around or outside the box and had an explosive turn of speed for a big man. Undoubtly the best of his era but Messi for me is the ultimate footballer.

so 30 year old allen playing near the bottom of the championship and 31 year old nzonzi playing in turkey and not wanted by his club. next level signings then !

fully expect the cheaper option to arrive on 31st.

that's your lot folks !

The Charlton fans I know absolutely love Cullen - and each one to a man have said he won't be any good in The PL. There's a reason why at 23 years of age, he's only ever made 3 PL appearances for us, and The Championship is the highest level he's played at with any regularity. he's actually not particularly good.

Let's just repeat his age. He's 23. He's not some kid who is being hard done by. The ship has sailed for him. He hasn't made the grade.
it's not about tearing up the premier league.. it's purely a question of utility and options.. noble is what 32? we have sanchez on the bench.. snoddy isn't even a central midfielder.. surely you can see the value in having cullen as an option for the rest of this season... if noble gets injured cullen will probably be starting

if we get no-one in then we've just gone ahead and shot ourselves in the foot

cullen will give us energy, bite and passion in the center of the park... and on the 60 min mark when nobles is starting to really feel it while rice is starting to get a little stretched bringing on cullen would be a positive move

your mates watching charlton obviously don't appreciate the state of our midfield but you certainly should

Wouldn’t be that disappointed with Nzonzi tbh.

Rumours suggest that we offered £14m for Ronaldo Viera, but walked away when the chairman realised he was not getting two players!

He's not good enough. If its bite and running around on the pitch we require, we may as well buy a tennis ball and a labrador.

Hes not good enough, not quite sure why you're not understanding that. We may as well start with 10 men.
