Look, it's not enough to tear down the house and lay a new foundation when rebuilding, you also have to appreciate that the cement takes a few years to dry before you can build on it,especially with all these rainy days.it bollo@£s i have read that tweet for two and half years now and it's the main reason i was looking forward to this season, I thought we would buy 5 first team players, we got 2.
I know this is a windup but if you drop Longstaff (from whom I see nothing that suggests he's better than Shelvey or Hayden really when I watch them) from this list it's not that bad.
Agreed but gotta add that Moutinho has been fantastic every time I've seen them the last few years. I think he'd have won a starting job everywhere in the Prem but City the last 5-6 years. Really clever user of the ball.Watched them last night, they play good football - it's practically a ball playing center back, a rapid winger and a real number 9. The rest are workers.
But there head coach is and has been doing a great job there...
Who the feck is paying £20m for Shaw, £15m for Rojo & £10m for Jones? We're not getting nearly £50m for three players who can't stay fit if their life depended on it. Factor in their wages too, Shaw is the highest paid full back in world football, Rojo is on about 80k a week, I think Jones is on about 100k. No way people are taking those wages on and paying us a transfer fee.Out -
Matic - 10m
Jones - 10m
Smalling - 15m
Rojo - 15m
Shaw - 20m
Andreas - 10m
Lingard - 10m
Total outgoing - 90m.
Net spend - 215m.
I like it. Plenty of hard work and passion in that side. Liverpool and City can have all the ability and talent they want, they aren't gonna be a match for Passion FC
He's clearly joking, playing off our Brexit FC meme status.Might as well stick with our current lot. No way that gets higher than 6th.
Why on earth would you pick Mee, Bertrand or Redmond??
Ings over Martial is madness too.
So we are signing mediocre centre back & left back, overpriced DM by playing him next to midfield who also not very strong with his passing, a pace merchant right winger, overpriced AM with not much end product and a Liverpool reject. Feels like we are going backward with that XI.
This is where the main issue of Ed is becoming so clear. Overpaying players. He killed the structure of the club’s wages ever since he took in charge. No clue what he was doing, and he’s making excuses that the football decision is not decided by him. These high wages are also affecting our club, the salary doesn’t reflect to the performance, players & agents are trying to take the advantage of it.Hes probably referring to this
Feck off Woody. You knob
This is horribly convincing. Bloody hell.My actual guess for the summer is we won't be as dumb as normal and will sensibly buy Grealish and then less sensibly pay like 70M for Rice, go after Sancho and fail, chase after backup options at RW like Traore or David Brooks that we're still all fairly optimistic about but fail, and then more typically also sign a 9 that doesn't make much sense (Arnautovic after he says something racist related to CoronaVirus). We also sign someone young like Bellingham or a Ligue 1 16 year old that does seem promising.
And of course we lose Pogba and Smalling for less than they're worth, lose Gomes and Chong for nothing, also Rojo goes for way less than Everton would have given us in August. We inexplicably retain Jones and Pereira and it comes out we've turned down a 25M offer for Lingard from a Prem team.
