Man City - the new bitters?

City will be stronger if they get Grealish no point in kidding yourself otherwise.

Also Silva is a little prick. 

I know that, I just think it's a risky move, selling the ultimate team player and replacing him with a maverick that has a questionable attitude. If they add just Grealish then its like for like really but if they add him and Kane to a championship winning squad then all the FSG bed wetters and everyone else can just shut the fuck up. There will be no point even trying to compete with that.

I fail to see how City continuing to break FFP rules make a Super League more palatable.

 

I recall reading Real and Barca had guarantees on more money, how there'd being no protection on where games would be played in future and how it would dilute competition even further. It would also be a great way for a franchise like New York City to become massive in time if they entered (which they would eventually).

 

I'd rather Liverpool won occasional trophies in the current set up where I can actually go to games than win occasional trophies in an even less attractive set up where I can't.

So between them City & PSG could load up on Kane, Grealish, Ramos, Wijnaldum, Donnaruma, Hakimi and possibly Pogba (2/1 odds) this summer.


Long live UEFA; long live competition

Arent they still going ahead with it?

It’s ongoing through the courts but the 3 clubs still onboard seem to think it still has legs. Good on them, fuck UEFA fuck Sky and fuck state owned football clubs.

Yes their arrogance bit them on the arse but the concept was a sound one. A few tweaks like relegation / promotion and it still has legs. Hope they have another pop just to see the self serving cunts at Sky lose the plot again.

The concept was built around franchises with no promotion or relegation.  That's not sound, that's shit.  And if you think the self serving cunts at Sky are bad, just wait until you see the self serving cunts who get to televise this circus.

You may be right pal - if anything it makes Ranieri look even better.

 

Ranieri's colossal achievement has almost already been forgotten... he knocked Arsenal's "Invincibles" out of the European Cup in 2004, almost certainly costing Arsenal their best ever chance to land one.

 

Then he pulls off that miracle with Leicester.  But it went against type and lost punters a bomb.  

Possibly the best single managerial feat since Murdoch "invented" football, and will never now get the recognition it deserves.

That's why i said a few tweaks like introducing promotion and relegation but ok let's carry on the way we are watching the state run clubs pile up up the trophies, fuck that.

The point I was making is it wouldn't be a tweak, it would be a major change - and in all probability a deal breaker for the likes of us.  Clubs with the most money are almost always going to win, no matter what the competition.

Hence the need to change. UEFA buckled to City and in doing so sold some of the biggest clubs on the planet down the river in a competitive sense. This league will happen, in what format who knows i just hope we're part of it.

So just the potential £260m on two players this window? How does Pep do it?

 

Genius manager and tactician, that's what.

Just think back to his masterclass in last season's European Cup Final.

 

Now, with his adding 260m quid's worth of further acumen and tactical brililance to his personal managerial armoury... well, his mental unsurpassedness is just going to burgeon further and further.

 

Imagine, when he inevitably becomes a little bit woke and changes his preferences, how a club like, say, Shrewsbury Town will benefit from his utter footballing godlikeness.

To be fair to PSG, 3 / 5 are free transfers and Pogba would be available for a reduced fee. 

 

Fully appreciate wages will be ridiculous though.

Yeah the wages will be far more obscene than vast majority of fees

Man City fan, Noel Carragher said, “Pep’s a genius, there’s just nobody like him. Managers try to buy players from other clubs, what does Pep do? He buys histories instead. The bloke’s a true visionary.”

Guardiola finally added, “They did flog us Fabian Delph in 2015, so it’s the least they can do really. If it’s rejected, then double it. Fuck it, triple it.

Grealish works his nuts off for Villa. Wheres this not a team player come from. 

I wasn't referring to work rate, more the fact he's an individual, hogs the ball, always looking for fouls. Where as Pep has his billion pound team built on a system of moving the ball repetitively. I'm terms of the current set up Bernardo Silva is  better suited.
