Philippe Coutinho

Don’t think we have a thread for Mr Top Bins on OA.

Why is he so out of favour that Barcelona don’t want him under any circumstances and there isn’t a bigger money club than us in for him? I remember being surprised he didn’t play when I went out to Barca for our game against them last year.

dunno everyone says he was a flop for bayern but watching his highlights and the goals and assists etc i dont see how he can be called a flop. In a way it might be a good thing that people arent too keen or seem to be looking elsewhere because i reckon he could be quite a useful player for us.

If he and Willian both come, then Auba has to be moving back to CF (with Laca leaving I assume). Pepe has RW locked down when fit so Auba LW just makes no sense at all given that will be both Willian and Coutinho’s best available position (although we can play Coutinho at CAM, he has always been best at LW).

---------------Auba (Nketiah)--------------------
Willian(Saka)—Coutinho(ESR)----Pepe(Martinelli)

I think I’d prefer a different player to Coutinho who we could sign permanently and who is more of a natural central midfielder. But this is still a pretty nice mix of high level veteran attackers and talented young players to rotate.

We also need squad depth Nelson is shit and if Saka needs to be deputy for midfield and left back we’re left with Martinelli…who’s injured. I don’t think him coming here means Aubamayang has to move back to centre forward.

He doesn’t fit their plans. It’s been a common thing of Barca the past years. Seems like they’re too obsessed emulating Madrid and the Galacticos.
They did it again with Griezmann. Wouldn’t be surprised if Griezy is in the same situation next year with Barca begging for clubs to get him.

I have a feeling he has clause that means they pay 20m more or so if plays another game

I’ve tried, mate.

Can’t get past him. He’s like M.Bison on the highest difficulty level

True. He’s shit. Fitting for a (water)loo

I know…John Cross. Also Matt Law’s story no longer mentions Coutinho.

Plausible story, it must mean Arteta wanted Coutinho LW

And one more. :call_me_hand:
