  1. Harry Kane | "I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success."

    Not quite true if you believe the Amnesty annual reports. The only country to do any beheadings last year worldwide was Saudi Arabia, and the UAE actually had zero death sentences last year and the year before. I haven’t look before that but it is far more prominent in many other countries...
  2. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Do you believe it every time? Same goes for every club - journalists guessing themselves silly. City player wages in the last financial report was £307m across 477 staff (including the players). If every player was walking away with the reported £12m per year then we’d be struggling. Grealish...
  3. Jack Grealish | Man City

    Now all the dust has settled I have to say I am really excited to watch him in a blue shirt. I won’t argue if he is or isn’t worth £100M or if he is or isn’t going to be a better signing than Sancho because neither question matters at this stage and only time will tell. What matters to me is...
  4. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    This is brilliant. Up there with one of my favourite ever posts on here. Is that really the extent of your analysis? I do enjoy FIFA so let’s build a side. GK - Szczesny (87) higher than De Gea (86) LB - Kolarov (82) higher rated than Shaw (81) CB - Laporte (87) higher than Varane (86) CB -...
  5. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    In his defence it was 9 years ago so he was only 16. Barely a footballer back then. There’s a few from Sancho too that you’ll have quickly forgotten so I think kids should be kids. I don’t think many fans would take these things personally!
  6. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    I know these always look good, but I did enjoy that. You can tell the boys got a little something. If it goes through I could argue about £100M but if it was £70M I think everybody would be saying it’s a great deal so somewhere in between is probably about right.
  7. Grealish To City? | City bid £100M

    He’s my top pick for the summer so I really hope this goes through. I do think he’ll play a slightly different role for City than Villa though but I think he’ll be excellent. Gündoğan turns 31 in a couple of months so I would expect to see Grealish & KDB in the middle given the option so Foden...
  8. Grealish & Kane in Pogba & Martial out

    I’d have Kane & Grealish at City Sterling & Jesus out...
  9. How good is Harry Kane?

    Extremely good. Any player who is on track to break the record for most PL goals ever must be some player. Here’s his first 150 (now 165).
  10. Rúben Dias - FWA Footballer of the Year

    He’s been a class act this season, and I think the biggest testament to that is how good Stones and Zinchenko have looked either side of him. Not just his football but he’s the leader we’ve been lacking since Kompany left, which at his age is pretty impressive. There’s a few other players in...
  11. Bar 18/19 the Title hasn’t been close in a while

    I think what you’re describing is just the norm. Here’s the list, if we take no context at all, in 29 seasons it’s only been ‘close’ around 11 times. (Less than 6 points / 2 games) gap. I would have added the winners but I wanted it to be quick! Makes me realise how different it could have been...
  12. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    First English club ever to win 12 away league games on the bounce, across any tier. You can add it to his collection of records broken since arriving here.
  13. Premier League Gameweek 35/36

    He’s only 21 so time will tell. I think he’ll suffer from the fact his best position seems to be the front man and City will sign a striker.
  14. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    A perfect example to support my post - you can always twist a narrative to suit the argument and People go to great lengths to do it. Mancini & Pellegrini we’re miles away from achieving what Pep has at City. Back to back titles, domestic treble, 100 points. Hopefully in a month we can add a...
  15. 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch

    It always amazes me the lengths people will go to to try and prove X is better than Y. Hard to say who’s better really isn’t it? they’re both top tier on merit and there’s not many up there with them. Separating them is difficult because they have different strengths and people will value them...
