  1. Possibly the best young striker in Europe holding out for us to buy him, and making clear that he’s no interest in going elsewhere. Rather than criticising them for holding out for a lower fee, in this case I’d give FSG a bit of credit for their role in where we are now and why Werner is taking that stance.

    Completely forgot to watch the second season of this. Must give it a go as the first was excellent.

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    A Bola's a good lad - you can take this one as done and dusted and get working on this kid's song.
  4. Say what you want about this little guy - his hips never lied.

    The domestic game has turned into a procession for Bayern post-Klopp. In fairness to them, I thought they were sensational against Chelsea a couple of months back. Second best side in Europe after ourselves.

    Disappointing result, that. That’s probably the title race over.

    I’m looking forward to hearing some of Robbo’s contributions to the officials and opposition when we play next month.

    It is, isn’t it? Definitely an improvement on the solitary claps and echoes.

    Fox Sports have crowd noises added in. Decent game in fairness.

    Grasping an electric fence as a kid, because there's no way they actually turn those things on. Felt like a sledgehammer falling on my head.

    Facemasks, PPE and Preppy Thread

    When a reporter said that none of the press saw him wearing a mask, Trump shot back: “I can’t help it if you didn’t see me.” “I mean I had a mask on but I didn’t need it, and I asked specifically the head of Honeywell, ‘should I wear a mask?’ And he said, ‘well you don’t need one in this territory,’ and as you knew, we were far away from people — from the people making the masks. They were making the masks,” he said. “But I did put a mask on and it was a Honeywell mask, actually. And I also had a 3M mask, and I had about four other masks, but I did have it on. I don’t know if you saw it, but I did have it on,” he said. Pressed on how long he wore the mask, the President paused slightly, and responded that it wasn’t “too long.” “Not too long,” he said, “but I had it on. I had it on back — backstage. But they said you didn’t need it, so, I didn’t need it. And by the way if you noticed nobody else had it on that was in the group.” Video from the facility shows workers wearing masks, which the President admitted. “The workers had them on yeah, the workers were there. Because they’re working next to each other,” he said. When another reporter asked how it looks for him to be in public not wearing a mask or practicing social distancing, the President seemed to have had enough. “I’m trying to be nice,” he said. “I’m signing a bill, and you criticize us. Look here’s the story: there’s nothing I can do to satisfy the media, the Democrats, who are the fake news. And I understand that.” When Trump is quoted verbatim, it just looks like a piece of text that somebody has translated through 50 different languages, one after the other, the meaning slightly altering all the time before it’s translated back into English.
  13. I think Traore is extremely limited. Conversely, I also think that if Klopp wanted him that he'd turn him into one of the most potent attackers in the world.

    On this day...

    That whole day was beyond strange. Full-on party in the plane on the way out to Istanbul, stony silence on the way back with people trying to process what they'd just experienced. That airport was bizarre too, and not entirely pleasant with no food or even water left anywhere. And just a few years into the security-hysteria that followed 9/11, I got back on the plane without once being asked for either my boarding card or passport. As for the game itself, Kaka was absolutely sensational before Hamann was brought on for him. Even in the pits of despair, I remember admiring the different level that he was on in that opening 45. What a footballer he was (Kaka, though Didi had his uses too).
  15. Hearing that @aRdja is now advising Michael Edwards. Presented a 312 page dossier on Traore. Moves for a pair of Harrys in Winks and Maguire imminent.
  16. Lallana in goals and Harvey Manbun in for Virgil. I like your thinking.
  17. They’ll be dancing on the streets of Celtic tonight in a socially distanced manner.

    He definitely has a pool of sharks under his office floor that he can make underlings fall into be pressing a button.

    This has all the atmosphere of a nearly full Etihad on a big European night.

    He’s a monster. Must have gotten that footballing talent from his mother’s side.
