January 2022 Transfer Thread

Recommended Posts

I've many times must Sterling miss from 6 yards out before the penny drops???

 

I said when we sold him that the only regret I had was that it wasn't to Man United.

 

Sterling is both fast and he stinks. So is diarrhea.

Rodolfo Borrell (the man who brought through Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and Fabregas) said Sterling was the second-best young player he ever coached - after Messi.

Comments like that always cause me Lazar Markovic flashbacks...

Selling Sterling was good business for us and City have had a decent return over the years despite his limitations in front of goal. They will get back more than they paid ln the full knowledge he won't improve .

If you don't want greedy, corrupt Saudis owning your club... then, seriously, how can you want a 21-year-old kid who wants to be paid 30m a year.

 

Get. To. Fuck. Son.

Fee being floated is 35-40m.

is the rumour this summer or january? i am guessing by the summer he is on bosman countdown. 

 

i wonder if we would see him as a bosman replacement for salah if we fail to nail him down to a new contract?

It was not good business for us to sell a 20 year old Raheem Sterling. In the event of a sale, it should've been years later for close to a triple digit fee after he'd signed a new contract. Or we keep a very good English player we have developped and Klopp gets to make him even better.

City being prepared to sell him to us would be telling enough, but I would have said the same about Milner back in the day.

 

If Klopp wanted him the strong likelihood is it would work out well, but I reckon it’s all just paper talk.

Rather use what little money we have for transfers to buy a young and upcoming talent rather than him.

 

Don't think he's actually that good and he always seems to cause shit wherever he goes.

They didnt have a lot of choice with Milner, his contract was up

His last home game for us against QPR, I remember a lot of the old skool Kemmy boys giving him shit…” hey Sterling, you’re a worm”.He naturally looked round perplexed.

 

Not sure we give him the love he deserved either and his embrace with his landlords and appreciation at the 2019 Charity Shield showed he still cared for us.  I would love him back.

And his kid is a red too isn't she and sings Mo's song to him.

His wank stain agent said he’d have stayed if Klopp was in charge didn’t he? I don’t blame him for leaving, he had no romantic ties to us, he helped us fuck over his boyhood club to come here at a pittance and when he left Rodgers had gone full Brent and was playing him wingback. He had a contract and decided not to renew, it’s the reason we have contracts, we made a fortune on him and he went to a team better placed to give him more trophies and money. 
 

Reckon he’d be a world beater if he’d have stayed though.

I've been watching a good bit of football of late, mainly Serie A or la liga. 

 

I'm trying to rack my brains as to who we should buy, and the mad thing is, it's hard to really see someone that could walk into our team and make it better. 

 

Forwards..... Mbappe perhaps, but he's not getting ahead of salah, and this seasons mane is better than him. 

 

Midfield, I've watched barella and kessie a bit, but although both are very good players, they're just not quick thinking enough for our team. 

 

Defence, same again, I wouldn't swap anyone, and don't get me started on the keeper, there's nobody better. 

 

We're in a cherished position lads. Savour it while it lasts.
