Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2016/2017

8,052 posts in this topic

Feels about the right time to start up the nearest and dearest thread for the upcoming season.

I'll start of with the news of Spurs signing Wanyama for £11m

Considering Southampton bought him for £12.5m I think they've got themselves a bit of a bargain there.

I keep thinking Wanyama is a Japanese, for some reason.

Southampton a sinking ship?

Southampton a sinking ship?

We thought that before Koeman took charge and they were losing some of their best players.

I think they'll be okay, although a cheeky bid for Charlie Austin wouldn't be the worst idea.

Yes, I know, but I suspect Southampton may not overcome such a drain a second time. Oh well, who knows... it may depend who'll be their next manager.

About 2 years ago, he would have cost £15m at most. It's crazy how much players cost now.

How do you think changes in currency exchange value will affect transfers?

Man City fans must feel somewhat conflicted with the sight of their new marquee signing hobbling around Manchester on crutches.

Maybe I'm harsh in this era, but that's an act of cowardice.

 

I'd have far more respect for him if he had the will and determination to preserve and seek redemption despite the recent shortcomings he's experienced with the national team.

 

The cynic in me thinks he'll still play for Argentina after some begging from the Argentinian fraternity.

I doubt those 2 things are related. He's in his early 30s, getting lumps kicked out of him on a regular basis, international travel takes a lot of energy, plus those stories about a corrupt AFA may have more to do with it.

He's 29 I believe and there's a world cup in a couple summers time.

My tongue was firmly planted in my cheek when I wrote that original post though.

Mkhitaryan to ManUtd for 26 million. Great purchase at that price, wonder if we were even interested. Zlatan signing imminent for them aswell apparantly.

Petulant child, that Lionel. 

 

Chucking his toys out the pram because he has won f**k all (Olympic gold doesn't count) internationally. And still hasn't scored against Chelsea.

Strange from Messi.

I'd have thought the chance of a last shot at the big one (World Cup) would be his swansong. It's not like he's had bad injury problems in the past likely to take years off him.

Good news for Barca though

Been having problems with Argentina, along with players like Aguero, etc so not surprised he retired. 

 

That said, he will most likely come out of retirement when the world cup comes around.

Rage quitting international football after defeat and a penalty miss is petulant. Like a spoiled little kid. Had Ronaldo done this; football fans would be in a frenzy.
