  1. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Odds are Fjortoft and Romano are both just copying from Bild, making one source look like three.
  2. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Looks like we might see about that 10th of August deadline after all.
  3. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Why? Leaking is a product of networking. You're more likely to have a trusting relationship with someone you see at every press conference than with some guy halfway across the continent who does transfer tweets. Falk almost exclusively sticks to Bayern news and the odd big German story like...
  4. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    What's this obsession with Romano anyway? Why would an Italian journalist be the oracle of a transfer between an English and a German team? In general I think people should be wary about these journalists or sources who put themselves into the spotlight, who somehow "know" about everything...
  5. Bundesliga 19/20

    Wasn't he all but certain to join Schalke for like the past two or three weeks? Another humiliation for them.. Randomly looking at Hertha's squad I noticed they now have two sons of former coach Dardai in their squad, as well as the son of his successor, Covic, as well as the son of famous...
  6. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    Not exactly. They wrote an article questioning whether United would pay up or try to gamble on Dortmund eventually caving because of corona, writing at the end of their article that Dortmund aren't very concerned that Sancho would do a Dembele, partly because there is a persistent rumour that...
  7. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    I'm genuinely curious why you would say that, as quite the opposite is actually true. Kicker don't really speculate or post click bait, they are usually a bit slower to report something, but very reliable.
  8. Bundesliga 19/20

    So you're asking yourself why Dortmund with their revenue of say €400m doesn't just pay the same salaries like a club with say €700m annual revenue? Or what they don't just buy Havertz for €100m instead of Bellingham for €25m? Why they didn't they just pay €50m for Hakimi? I guess we will never...
  9. Bundesliga 19/20

    I mean even 10 years ago Bayern was the dominating force in Germany and one of the richest clubs in the world. How does that compare to Dortmund? And I assume "Hoeneß digging his feet in" is code for Ribery killing Real's pursuit of him by screwing an underage prostitute? How's that feet digging...
  10. Bundesliga 19/20

    I wonder what he's trying to achieve with statements like that. He can't be stupid or naive enough to actually believe this.
  11. Managerial Stagnation in English Football

    One big difference you're leaving out is language: Bundesliga's pool consists of basically Austria, Switzerland and the odd Dutch or Danish coach. "No one" happens to randomly speak decent German, so they can only recruit from these countries. For Italian clubs the pool is even smaller. Even...
  12. Conte leaving Inter?

    Can someone from Italy tell us how much of these accusations are fair and how much is Conte acting like a spoiled child? With just a few unverified tweets this seems impossible to judge. Trappatoni has coached the whole of Europe it feels like, he's probably on that list. But seriously: at the...
  13. Jadon Sancho - United in advanced negotiations per Fabrizio Romano

    That's indeed what Bild are writing: that United can't pay €120m upfront because of Corona, so they supposedly want to offer this three year plan.
  14. The mask debate

    I mean everyone already agreed to cover their private parts with cloth, so really they have no choice anymore on covering their face with cloth, too. MSM told me so.
  15. Arthur Melo - Barcelona's new number eight

    Barca get a taste of their own medicine. It's hard to feel sorry for them.
