  1. Ole uncertain of summer transfer funds

    Chelsea used the morata money for Werner. They got 100m for hazard they never spent and got their highest earner off the books. Liverpool barely spent last year, but spent over 300m euros over the three windows prior (granted they got a lot back for Coutinho alone). No doubt still paying fees...
  2. Rashford | takes on the government over free meals for kids - and wins

    What a man. Good on you, Rashford. Making us proud.
  3. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Ruling is expected the first half of July. https://www.espn.com/soccer/manchester-city/story/4109303/manchester-city-to-learn-champions-league-fate-in-july-over-ffp-breaches
  4. Ethan Laird

    The reality is that Laird is the perfect foil for AWB, tactically. In a couple of years, we'll hopefully have an insanely talented attacking RB to go along with the best defensive RB in the league. There will be games better suited for one over the other based on tactics (and...
  5. Kai Havertz

    It’s my opinion, and yours is certainly not outlandish. Two of the top top young players in the world - I could see either position justified. I will say that I think his stats would be crazy good if he was at Dortmund, and they’re already very impressive. I prefer us to sign Sancho for a...
  6. Kai Havertz

    Dream signing. Better player/more potential than Sancho (who I’d prefer to have for other reasons) in my opinion. We won’t get him, though.
  7. How will our league finish effect Europa League

    It's also more prize money to win it. Not a huge amount, if I recall, but it helps, especially in this environment. Doesn't it help with CL seeding, also? Aside from it being another European trophy, which we should always be aiming for, there are other benefits to winning it.
  8. Protests following the killing of George Floyd

    You're right. They need to be trained to stand up to their colleagues, even if they are authority figures, if they see something that's wrong. It's not acceptable to sit back and watch. But there are so many cops in the US dealing with ridiculous things every day and doing the right thing, we...
  9. Protests following the killing of George Floyd

    Based on what I tend to see in this forum, I'm sure people will argue against this, but the vast majority of cops are good people that do a thankless, dangerous job and genuinely care about protecting all citizens, as per their oath. The vast majority are just as outraged that someone that took...
  10. Transfer Tweets - 2019/20 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Damn... I did my acl, lcl, partial pcl and partial mcl. Tore or partially tore every ligament in my left knee. Doc said it was like a high speed car wreck injury (from football). Surgery on the acl (the lcl, like mcl injuries, heal without surgery) and I was totally fine (for every day movement...
  11. In hindsight, should Guus Hiddink's tactics against Barcelona in 2009 receive more acclaim due to how he contained such an amazing team?

    Chelsea were robbed, and that’s an incredible understatement. It’s really the only thing worth noting about that game. Probably would have won 3 or 4 nil if we had VAR back then.
  12. Transfer Market and Lower costs.

    For those saying oil rich clubs will be in the best position, don’t forget that amid the coronavirus issues we’re also in the middle of an oil price war that has driven crude prices way down as a result of Russian and Saudi actions. Those “oil rich” clubs are making considerably less per barrel...

  14. Bruno Fernandes | 2020 Performances

    Delivered the best corner we’ve had all season, hit the post on a cheeky free kick and had some brilliant passes, showing excellent vision, that nearly came off. Great performance. Seems like a the type of player who’s dead ball delivery is so good, he can make an impact even when he/the team...
