Ansaldi is 10x better than Emerson. I don't want Emerson on our team.

I don’t know much about this guy but I’m already getting sick of people bashing our club for not signing Danilo for 13.5million (kid with almost no experience) and criticizing us for picking up Emerson for $2.5-$5million who played 84 games with the French Champions.

No f’d offense but this guy has experience that Danilo will take while years to pick up. Just like Danilo, Emerson didn’t start all his games but the experience is day and night.

I'm glad we didn't get Danilo. Although I'm not that comfortable with Emerson.

He just won the French league and cup.
Has experience and will settle quickly.
Lets not judge him yet by comparing him against his namesake

Don't like to criticise our players but man this guy needs the bench. Cerebral brain pauses when he has the ball and a massive liability to our attacking game. Everytime he does something wrong or gives away possession, which is most of the time, we lose our chance to go forward.

Having possession and creating chances is key to winning any game and he doesn't provide the team or fans with any confidence. Don't know what Capdevila has done wrong for him to be overlooked completely by JJ.

January window fail. LFV has time to buy 10 or so players for the B team but not a left-back.

While he has had some great moments, they don't make up for how bad he can be at marking his player, connecting with teammates (I swear I see the ball go out of bounds half the time it's passed to him), and his passing can be a joke. If anything Emerson is feeling like the current peixoto.

He was supposed to be a back up for Cap but that all fell apart when JJ didn't like the guy. What I remember hearing was that JJ had his heart set on Eliseu but the club didn't want to pay up for him at the time and Cap was a cheap alternative.

I was massively disappointed to see no action in the winter window. I had some slight hope when Cap was getting a bit of time in those league cup games and then we put him on the CL list but that seems to have gone nowhere. I almost wonder how Matic would do in that position if both Javi and Witsel are playing but there's no time to experiment at this stage given our upcoming matches.

IMO, Luis Martins is a way better player. If i was JJ, I would play him, we have nothing to lose since Emerson makes so many mistakes in 1 game.

I agree Let young Luis get a run. BTW, Spurs Arsenal is a BURNER this morning, glad I got up early for it! Emerson has the effort but his possession is terrible and he has no touch on the ball. Yesterday was a great example. How much worse can Martins or Cap be? Maybe Martins could turn into the next Fabio or Cap recover his form. This is getting ridiculous!
