Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

It’s obvious that we’re not going to sell Pogba and he’ll leave on a free after spending one more Mickey Mouse of a season at United, when his top priority will be avoiding injury.

We won’t buy a midfielder either. Get ready for another season of McFred protecting Maguire.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

I hope this isn't true. We desperately need quality midfielders as it is. Selling donny would make us even more reliant on McFred. Goalkeeping and midfield is a mess. We have lots of players, not much convincing quality. Donny isn't making any difference to our reliance on McFred. He isn't even in ...

We gave the club too much credit when we assumed Henderson was being paid a first team wage cos De Gea was leaving. It looks like he's staying. PSG was supposed to be his preferred club, but they've got gone and got Donnarumma.
Donnarumma is a better keeper than either of them.

Re: Maguire

If we sign Varane, it will be interesting to see if Ole then feels he can play a higher line. Or will Maguire’s lack of pace still force us to sit deep?

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

There seems to be some momentum in the Trippier story. I think it's a short sighted signing but we do need cover at RB and he's better than AWB at getting forward and whipping those crosses in. Maybe it'll give AWB the kick up the ass that Shaw had when we signed Telles or/and maybe AWB will be mou...

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

A lot of Barca’s problems will be solved by offloading Messi if they can. Absolutely. But according to the financials Messi brings in more revenue than he costs, so Barca are desperate to keep him. But therein lies another problem; paying monumental wages to players that are clearly past it. They'r...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Ligue un is fucked too due to the collapse of their massive TV rights deal. Amazon bought up the rights when they went to auction but for a massively reduced fee leaving ligue un clubs with a minimum 400m loss of revenue from one season alone. It stands to be bigger. Wow. The Prem has the pick of t...

Re: Maguire

Martial seems a bit “temperamental”, or inconsistent, moody, or whatever the right term is. But so is Shaw. It’s just an individual thing. The French national team in recent memory had some upheavals due to racial politics. There was a blow-up at the WC some years back, Evra was involved. But that s...
