  1. Actually the most frustrating thing about him is that is his only 'if'. If he sorts out his finishing, he's world class. That's it! He doesn't get injured, he has endless work rate, seems liked by the team, can pass, tackle, positioning is great. Just...finishing.
  2. I imagine the idiots who slate Mount haven't been anywhere near the ground. Unfortunately we have multiple types of idiots who follow us.
  3. 100th appearance for the club and unlucky not to have a goal contribution. Interested to see how he gets on this season, glad he got a run out further forward.
  4. Thats because transfermarkt classify him as a Chelsea U23 player. Same with Livramento https://www.transfermarkt.com/fc-chelsea-u23/alletransfers/verein/9250 Obviously the money coming in goes to the same place, but they just record it like that for some reason. Is a bit annoying. City have the same problem. What then happens is media outlets lazily only look at transfermarkt data without knowing the hidden u23 sales and then sky report that our net spend is less than it is.
  5. The weird thing with arsenal is they are probably signing the right players for their level, but they are paying way too much. Put Marina in their negotiating team and they'd have spent half the money they did.
  6. I suspect they've made an error as Abraham (35) Zouma (30) Tomori (25) Guehi (20) =110m (and those are conservative numbers) and then we sold Zappa, Livramento, Ugno, Bate and Moses (20m total) So for me, we've got a net spend of minus 30m before you get into loan fees. I suspect they've taken their data from transfermarkt which categorises some of our sales as Chelsea u23
  7. Ultimately sending James off was the right decision. But he handled the situation poorly. He needed to show due care, attention and explain his decision to James and Azpi. He needed to actually look at the video. Running to the screen, glancing at it and then immediately showing James a red card was what is poor refereeing.
  8. I love the guy but I just find that ridiculous. It also really highlights how pointless indvidual awards are. Jorginho is great when part of a great team. Without Kante, Mount, Silva, Azpi around him, he's nowhere near the conversation.
  9. Donnarumma is definitely top 5 in the world. It's not controversial to say he's best.
  10. Think the addition of donnarumma wijnaldon and Ramos might be more crucial there than Messi But got to feel the team that beats PSG wins the thing. Surely.
  11. I think we are potentially the best team in Europe, but that doesn't mean we win the league. Best for me beats the best. The winner of the league is the team that can beat the most. I think city have the experience we don't have as a team to unpick the stubborn well drilled teams in the bottom half more consistently than us over the full season. I think we're going to have a great year, watch some great football and I would be surprised if we don't live some silverwear. But I wouldn't be surprised if we finish 3rd in the league.
  12. It wasn't entirely serious, but when you look at the charity work Rashford and reece James, do, the entire england squad anti racism stance and how they donate all their fees to charity, it's not entirely wrong either. Just think the throwaway comment that most footballers are thick isn't really fair anymore.
  13. Got to assume they are profitable assets for us if we are extending. From their side there is probably a value, not sure what. Maybe they earn more in wages on loan through us than if they joined another club permanently.
  14. This isn't the 90s anymore. Footballers are some of the best people our society has nowadays.
