Given he’s currently a free agent, what about Messi?

FSG where spot on with the incentive based contracts. We’d have been in admin now if we’d have had a load of shite on contracts like theirs.

Also a cautionary tale of how badly transfer flops can hurt even an incredibly rich club. Our hit rate over the past few seasons has been so good.

Yes, this is the truth.

 

They've bought utter utter shite and paid them loads of money. It hasn't come from fan pressure/expectations at all.

Yep it’s 200m according to the article I was sent on whatsapp, mental they are in this position. If only united could tank like this.

The folly of expecting them to spend as much as Brighton and Villa has really caught up to them at last. The fans only have themselves to blame for their entitled shit.

Supposedly taking a 50% pay cut just to get them to this position. Which is still, no doubt, some ridiculous amount.

Villa and Brighton? Dear fucking god. I really think some of our fan base look on at their neighbour buying a brand new car and think they have to go out and get one just to keep up.

I've actually given some pretty in-depth opinions in the last few pages, but sometimes you see a post that doesn't deserve the seriousness.

Congrats. You could have replied to any them, but you chose my obviously flippant reply. Weird, but ok.

Not sure how much Barcelona hold up Brighton and Hove Albion as a comparator tbh

That depends on ones opinion of in depth and flippant replies. The same vein runs through them all, few facts and substance but lots of supposition.

On a forum? Of all places?

 

If you'd pointed out all the things you disagreed with, and we could have had a conversation. Howie disagreed with me, but he didn't' see the need to act a complete cunt. Be more like Howie.
