    Man City - the new bitters?

    I decided to take a look because I have seen a fair bit of revisionism around how much city have spent and frankly the money spent in football disgusts me - not just city, but they’ve played a big part in it obviously. the Neymar transfer to PSG reset the market most recently, which turned average cloggers from £6m gambles to £25m gambles. Turned £30m stars into £80m stars. But the market was already messed up before then. keepers going for £75m+, defenders for £80m, it’s just disgusting. it makes teams trying to challenge have to lash £30-40m on players that are far from proven to be good enough. Look at Kean - £30m for a young gamble that might, but obviously might not work out. so, according to transfermarkt.com; Gk - Ederson was the UK record in 17/18 obviously now surpassed (twice) DF - City have 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 11th and 12th most expensive transfers for defenders in the UK. of those, Stones was English record for a defender in 16/17; then overtaken by Laporte in 17/18. Mendy was English record for a full back in 17/18, now Cancelo is. MF - 2nd and 3rd most expensive signings, De Bruyne was the record in 15/16. Forwards: Sterling was 2nd (behind Di Maria) in 15/16, Mahrez (who wasn’t needed and doesn’t play!) was and still is 3rd most expensive attacker signed in English football ever!! Thanks mate, is that a poster in GoT who isn’t mentally ill?

    Like Rodney King being shot by Officer Koon. Does anyone have a link to a post or page detailing the level and scale of city’s spending in comparison to others. I know Dave Usher posted a good analysis of it but can’t find it. ThanksZ

    Sheffield have played well. I think they could equalise.

    Man Utd (H) Premier League - 19/1/20

    But Keane is so defensive he’d start a fight in an empty house. my mates a united fan and he’s heard they are waiting for Klopp and Fraudiola to leave. That’s their plan! Wait until their rivals are less good.

    Your club or home town is like your family. You might be their harshest critic but if someone from outside starts slagging them off you’d defend them to the hilt.
