    Not even we are stupid enough to dig Barca out of their ludicrous €142m hole.

    If Pogba leaves, Coutinho or Eriksen wouldn't be a bad replacement.

    If Pogba is staying, then no need of Coutinho

    So we want "game changing" signings.

    I hope the club haven't been briefing that, as when we buy the likes of Wan Bissaka or Rice for 100m between them we'll look a leeeelte foolish.

    This is simply untrue. That we don't make use of the players we get and don't have a consistent cross-manager strategy to player recruitment is a different set of problems that need addressing.

    I agree I hope they mean a least three game changing signings as is big signings and other signings. Lets face it, top four or not, without a major outgoing or two we cant sign six big signings as you are talking around £400m.

    I think there are a lot of really really good young players like Ascacibar, Barella, Tonali, Upemecano, Rice, Wan Bissaka, NDOmbele, Jovic, Guimaraes, Lincoln that are all top class and potentially world class under £50m for the vast majority.
    If we could make 6 signings mixed up of major ones of the likes of Koulibailly, Sancho, Fernandes and these I would be delighted.
    It isnt about big names though, all about getting the right type of player for the positions really need upgrading and I think a lot o that depends on a top four finish and having the balls to move on a fair few players.....with our recent performances and new contracts handed out I am not overly confident to be honest

    Go on YouTube. Type in 'Bruno fernandes vs' and you'll get videos where all his touches in the game are played, not just the good ones. Obviously that's more informative than a skills reel. Obviously you don't have the greater context of seeing how the rest of the game went but it's a useful way of seeing what a player is actually like in a short time.

    Erikson plays in the same position, is at least as good at the things isco is good at in midfield and also currently has the second highest assist tally in europe. To a large extent it is about assists and goals, we don't create enough chances or score enough goals to be a genuine top side. Eriksen would help in that respect, isco wouldn't greatly. Pogba at present is our only consistent creative player so if teams manage to nullify him then we really labour along. With two similarly creative players in the middle of the park it would be far more difficult for teams to close off the danger. Look at city, they've got so many creative options in and around the midfield. It's very difficult to stop them all.

    I'd say Isco's much better at dribbling and keeping the ball under pressure.

    You did indeed. Wonder what will happen and if they really choose to go with such an unproven player as a replacement. I wouldn't say we should be interested since we have Garner, our own kid.

    At €25m they could flip him for profit even if they can't keep him. PSG keeps 20% sell-on.

    One of the more baffling transfers in the last years. PSG need midfielders and loan out a highly rated one with sell clause without getting replacements :houllier:.

    I would take him here, he will develop only further. His first full season as a starter and he is tearing it up.

    Maybe that could be our revenge. They nick Herrera off us and we get this lad off Betis.

    I can assure you we are. We've just given up on Bale after all these years.

    We fecked up with Herrera ourselves IMO. We would do the same in that position. If Rabiot wouldnt be such a troublemaker or portrayed as one, i am sure we would be interested as well.

    He had to wear ear plugs in a football match because it was too loud if I recall correctly :lol:

    Possibly in the wrong line of work.

    How many posts and pages will it be before we see the tweet that basically says Ed has again briefed the press on the mass clearout with mass influx story to appease the masses?

    I wouldnt bet against it.

    The only reason I can see this not happening is Coutinhos recent interview where he still seemed to have a lot of dislike towards us.

    Also I predicted the ghoul would score against us :mad:

    The Sancho thing is just a rumour for muppets to bring out their kleenex but just like with Hazard you are only going to be left with a sore willie and calluses on your palm. It's not going to happen.

    So long as FIFA/UEFA closely monitor whatever it is that they plan to do about it then good luck to them. I cannot imagine it will be anything that is not outside rules and regulations though.

    You are probably one of those guys who said the same thing about Pogba joining us, right?

    Hazard is going to Madrid by the way.

    There is nothing in that story whatsoever. He won't leave Dortmund this summer, but probably will next summer. What the feck can City do about it, other than buy him, like any other club?
