Man City - the new bitters?

Recommended Posts

Football focus saying Halaand for the money is a much better deal than Nunez. Didn't they play 50 plus million for him plus paid his agent and dad about 40 million each and Halaand is on a way way higher wage. Some clubs they downplay their spending, mostly the cheating clubs the fucks

The difference in total cost/season is massive.

 

Nunez: £85m fee + £10m agents fees (?)/6 seasons = £15.8m/season + £5.2m/season wages = £21m total player cost/season

Haaland: £51m fee + £35m agents' fees/5 seasons = £17.2m/season + £19.5m/season wages = £36.7m total player cost/season

 

Anyone pretending that Nunez cost as much as Haaland doesn't know what they're talking about, and I'm using all the add-ons in that price as well (I'm guessing on the agents' fees for Nunez as they weren't reported but £10m is probably the top end, given he didn't have a release clause and wasn't represented by a superagent).

 

Our most expensive player ever, as measured in total cost/season remains Van Dijk at about £25m/season.

Even I got paid on that deal because I've been to Dortmund a few times.

Can you imagine what's being paid off payroll? He was touting himself around at 600k per week, there's no way he's accepted 350k to go there. It's just half his wages will be paid elsewhere, off their books and in a more tax efficient manner.

It's utterly bizarre the obsession with who's better him of Nunez and it seems to be coming pretty much exclusively from outside our fanbase. I couldn't care less what they do or who they buy. 

 

The fact your average footy fan is more arsed about us than they are about them is what you'd expect in a country where Blackpool and Middleborough have Tory MPs. Take us out of the mix and it's basically golf with Kim Jong il - forever.

Are you trying to say the dear leader didn't get 18 hole-in-ones?

 

That's the gulag for you!

If you gave that guy a golf club, he'd probably try and fuck it.

Hate this narrative that other clubs could have bought Haaland.

 

Reality is only the cheats could afford his wages and all the rest and of course whatever else he/his team are getting from other areas they'll be paying him/them in.

 

The transfer fee is totally irrelevant

West Ham barely got a touch today. Wouldn't be surprised if Man City go unbeaten in the league this season.

Some pressing, harrassing and pressure  on ball and tackling might have given them a bit more of the ball - but they went out totally passive in all those areas.

One thing that will get very boring very quickly is that ugly cunts goal 'celebration'. Some fucker needs to kick him when he's sat down doing that Yoga shit.

Presumably West Ham weren’t allowed (or prepared) to kick and ‘leave something on’ the opposition at will, whilst getting a succession of soft free kicks and a penalty in return (as per  Craven cottage, just in the unlikely event that anyone didn’t get the comparison ).

I think, based on the one game played so far (which is dangerous), Haaland will definitely help City further whip the dross in this league, which is roughly 14 out of the 20 teams?

I expect to see their goals total rocket as they put 5 or 6 past teams who they might have put 3 or 4 past last season, and he will very likely finish as leading scorer, injuries allowing.

How it pans out against the few teams who actually try to give them a game will be interesting though, they appear to be playing more direct balls into the box or behind the defence to accommodate his style of play, and some of the better defenders may find that easier to play against than the usual “ get it to the line and pull it back” approach they usually adopt.

Of course, they would still have the second option of doing that if things weren’t working out, so overall they’ll be more difficult to overcome.

That’s not to say it can’t be done though.

Did you copy and paste that from week 1 last season?

West Ham will bust a gut against us and boot us all over with the usual PL referee's impunity agenda vs Liverpool.

The OTT Halaand stuff is well and truly underway. 

 

"Ominous signs for the Premier League!" 

 

"Most strikers in the world try and pass the keeper and finish with their right, they don't open themselves up with their left - different class."

 

Get fucked.

 

Sean Dundee could bang goals in with De Bruyne pulling the strings.

He looks frightening. Reminds me of when Drogba came and it was like fuck this guys a beast. There was always going to be hyperbole around him, westham looked fucking terrified  of him. If he stays fit he's going to score an outrageous amount of goals in that City team.
