We are an absolute fucking joke. Rivals all clearly strengthening and we’re weaker right now than we were last season, with 2 weeks to go until the season starts.

Ooh careful you're being negative, cleverest club in the world remember!

Bowen has been training all week but isn’t in the West Ham squad for their game today. More importantly I just saw two fake Paul Joyce profiles commenting on it on Twitter.

It’s a minor injury. I assume the fake Paul Joyce accounts are major brain injuries.


Imagine your life being so pathetic and empty you set up a fake Paul Joyce account, just imagine how emotionally crippled and brain dead you’d have to be to even consider it a worthwhile or funny way to spend your one life.

So you’re one of them! I just assumed they were both Code.

WHY NOT JUST ADMIT YOU WANT US TO BE OWNED BY VLADIMIR PUTIN?

Have to admit, I’m getting to get a bit frustrated. At least last summer we knew we wanted Thiago and had stories from Germany keeping us updated. 
 

There is currently nothing about us.

 

I know we’re constantly being told we have to await sales first but there is no news on Shaq, Minamino or Origi departing either. 
 

It is disheartening when you see Citeh about to blow £260m on two players. 
 

We have 4 weeks to go. I’m not concerned about the opening fixtures, I think we have enough to win all 3, but we certainly need to strengthen before the end of the window  for when the fixtures come thick and fast. 
 

I do think we’re all forgetting how good we are when everybody is available though. 97 & 99 points and then best side in the league for 2/3ds of last season (points wise). I have faith we’ll be good again and challenging but at the moment, I’m not sure it’ll be enough for 1st.

For me the worry is seemingly being ready to once again rely on likes of Keita....

 

We have lost our most reliable and durable midfielder, a player who was an ever present and i just can't see how trusting Keita or Oxlade is a good idea....add to that that Hendo is ageing and seems to be getting more injury prone, Milners age, Fabinho will probably miss a good 8-10 league games minimum based on his record so far with us and Thiago has a pretty patchy record when it comes to staying fit throughout his career....

 

The middle of the park worries me.

 

Yes there is Jones and maybe Elliott, but its a big ask for both potentially - i suppose we may be about to find out if they are up to it.

 

Personally i'd like to see someone brought in to midfield and us not risk giving Keita another chance and relying on him only for him to let us down yet again by not being there when we need him......As for Oxlade, I just don't think he ever was or will be good enough and of course he is hardly the most durable.

Kane is a wanker and I do not think City will be in for him.

 

Grealish will have alot to prove - having everything run through him at Villa and the team set up to cover for him is not going to happen at City.

If he plays in the front three they give up alot of pace on that wing. Playing next to DeBruyne, their midfield looks a little lacking defensively. Also not sure Gundogan can replicate his form - was a career year for him.

It bothers me when players do this. I felt the same way with coutinho. 
 

When you sign a contract you should consider how it may impact on your “ dream “ to play elsewhere and don’t just look at how much you are getting paid.

It'll be great for breaking up the play though. Fernandinho breaking up counter attacks in his own particular style, and Grealish 'winning' countless free kicks when they're under pressure or out of position.

At least Grealish seems to be behaving professionally…

I love how this is newsworthy.

 

One for the modern football thread.

No chance he’s not turning up for training in the ‘hope’ City come in for him.

I think there is bad blood between him and Levy at this point.

 

He has years left on his contract so unless he has been tapped up hope is where he is right now don't you think?

He may feel United are in the mix as well.
