I know you are trying to be funny, but thats a shit thing to write about someone fighting cancer. Its not funny.

Err again people think I am trying to be funny, how ridiculous, just because my suggestions are unconventional.

Some context, I am Chinese, so that’s not actually a joke to me.

It’s a very real thing tbh, we are talking about thousands of years of medical history and study that far predates any western medicine.

It’s obviously “alternative” meds, but it’s far easier on the body than chemotherapy. For some reason, rich Chinese tend to go to these methods than chemo, so maybe the Zhang family knows something and can set them up for some help.

and yeah, China is actually one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world, I mean hello, this is 21st century, but I don’t blame the British fuckers to think otherwise.

Add him to the list of good recent players we only got to see for a single season: Rafinha, Banega, Cancelo...

Meanwhile we still have to suffer through shitters like Vecino and Dalbert

Probably for the same reason why rich Westerners continue to rely on Western medicine. They're more familiar with it and will stick to it until they are given scientific evidence that there's a better alternative available. I know nothing about Chinese medicine, hence your claims about the effectiveness of its remedies might as well be true. However, to think that an Italian (or Western) woman would even consider moving to China (or anywhere else, for that matter) to get treated for cancer, leaving her parents, siblings, friends, in short, her whole world 10000km behind, solely on the basis of the "alleged" better treatments she could get there is frankly absurd. Fighting cancer is no walk in the park, and she definitely needs all the support she can get during what is certainly the most difficult period of her young life. That's what Bluenine surely meant by "unpractical and a bit insensitive". No need to get riled up or, worse, to play the race card against him.

That being said, there's a rumour floating around here in Italy (hence take it with a grain of salt) according to which Conte has nothing personal against Nainggolan, but the Belgian's results in the fitness tests the team underwent at the beginning of the preseason were so bad that he's now considered pretty much "finished" at high level. Personally, I don't quite believe this rumour because, in fact, he looks to be in better physical shape than last year, at least from the pictures. Anyway, I don't get why they brought him to Asia if they didn't intend to make use of him.

Good? From 38 Serie A games he played in 29. And in these 29 games he had 7 games with around 30 minutes or less (sometimes only a handful of minutes). In the Coppa he played 14 minutes and IIRC missed the determining penalty. In the CL he played 4 from 6 games and in the Europe League he missed both games against Frankfurt.

And in all the games he played, he had as many good as he had bad games.

I wouldn't call him good player last season. Decent maybe. But that's by far not enough for the price we paid and considering he was our second best (or even best?) earner AND considering his off the pitch habits.

Edit: And this nonsense about Chinese medicine should be banned. You don't have to be a "healer" to realize that eating or drinking certain stuff is good for your body or that a massage can relieve tension. But Chinese medicine to fight cancer?! This is some dangerous rubbish and that scam scam too often keeps people away from real treatment. Everybody who has to do something with science should fight this superstition. I'm sorry, but as someone with a cancer patient in his family this makes me really angry.

Picture and tests are 2 different things. It could be true! But I am curios how were the results of grandpa Valero?

I have witnessed people with cancers were cured with herbal medicine (let's call it herbal rather than Chinese) and also those who were cleared with modern medicine. I have also witnessed those who didn't make it on either treatment. I just think it is unfair to call herbal/traditional medicine "dangerous rubbish" and "scam" or "superstition" when you don't actually understand what they actually are, regardless how angry you are, because it's just as offensive to those who believe in them or gained results from them.

and before you question, yes, I have some cancer patients in my family.

Let's end it here though.

He put an insta story up of him lying on seats at the match yesterday with the wording "brainf****d". I dont know why he isnt getting a shot he has the most quality out of our midfielders, if we can just get him and keep him fit

Don't get it either. It seems like he has gotten his shit together. Should give him a chance.

Sucks that he's not part of the plans. We need to replace him with a goal scoring midfielder or of a similar ability at least.

Sensi, Barella, Brozovic, Gagsy, Vecino, Valero, Mario is not very appealing.. We need a big signing in midfield.

Also consider if we loan Radja, pay part of his wages, then take Vidal on loan and pay his wages (which are like double to Radja's). It's fucking net negative compared to last season. Radja -> Vidal on the pitch is not a massive improvement.
