  1. Starting to look like United just replaced one set of incompetent morons with another.
  2. Nah. Sporting Director is beneath Ed. He's a CEO! eta. reports that PSG have reached an agreement with Galtier on a 2-year contract with an option for a further year.
  3. Reports say that they are on the lookout for a sporting director though. Names being mentioned are Michael Edwards (apparently he's already turned them down) and their former sporting director, Michael Emenalo.
  4. I don't think City will sell Sterling for £21m but I doubt they will get £40-50m either. Sterling is also on big wages (reportedly £300k/week including bonuses).
  5. Don't have to worry about that. Plenty of reports that Eriksen wants to remain in London (and prefers a CL team) so Spurs are the most likely to sign him. Failing that he'd probably renew with Brentford.
  6. Each subsequent season is worse than the last imo so season 3 was the weakest of all. The plot was more straightforward and they did not make the same mistake as in season 2 where it seemed the writers were more interested in putting together a convoluted plot in an attempt to foil reddit detectives from figuring out their plot twist as they did in season 1 but there are no memorable episodes in season 3 (like Kiksuya in season 2) so season 3 is largely forgettable for me and I only vaguely recall the season. I think one of the problems of season three is that Westworld, like Jurassic Park, loses much of its magic once you leave the park.
  7. At least your lot have made some signings. Our morons haven't even gotten one deal over the line.
  8. It's only the one matchday that's played on the 28th and 29th that is being postponed. There will still be matches on boxing day, new year's eve and 2nd January. There are reports now that Chelsea are prepared to compromise on the loan fee. Apparently they would be prepared to accept €12m instead of €20-25m.
  9. Matt Law reporting that Chelsea and Inter have opened talks over Lukaku's return to Inter (expected to be a loan deal). Says that Lukaku would have to accept a wage cut and Chelsea would likely have to cover part of his wages as well to make the move happen. ETA.
  10. Juve no longer have prime Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini, Pirlo, Marchisio/Vidal to cover for him. He might do better than he did at United but Pogba is the very definition of "on his day" type of player and he's injury prone as well. Either way, I'm glad to see the back of him. If United were a well run club, we'd have sold him 3 years ago. It seems that PSG have run out of options. How many managers with a history of European success are actually available? If the rumours are to be believed then Zidane, Allegri and Mourinho all turned down offers.
  11. Looks like PSG have failed to convince Zidane. Di Marzio reporting that they've turned their attention to Christophe Galtier and are close to reaching an agreement. Agresti reporting that Juve has finalised the deal with Pogba and will officially announce his signing in July.
  12. England and France have to be among the most disappointing national teams. Both are overflowing with talent yet play some of the most turgid football.
  13. Reports that Moshiri is entertaining offers to buy Everton. Matt Law reported that a consortium headed by Peter Kenyon are interested in buying the club.
  14. Looks like PSG have not given up on Zidane. Some reliable journos from RMC have reported that talks have been ongoing and PSG are now close to reaching an agreement with Zidane. RMC also reporting that Pogba has not yet accepted Juve's offer because he is waiting for Zidane to be officially appointed at PSG before his representatives start negotiations with them.
  15. All the top journos for Liverpool are reporting about Nunez but none, as far as I've seen, reported on Danjuma so it seems that Nunez is Liverpool's top target to replace Mane. They will most likely get him but, given the reported fee and the current weaknesses in Nunez's game, he would represent the biggest risk Liverpool have taken in the transfer market thus far during Klopp's reign.
  16. My Benfica supporting buddies tell me he's really dangerous when given the space to counterattack but is much less effective right now when facing low blocks because his hold up play, first touch (especially with his back to goal) and passing ability is poor while his movement is one-dimensional. His aerial ability is not as good as one might expect of a player of his size either. I really hope United aren't going to try to outbid Liverpool. Benfica's asking price is way too high for a player of Nunez's current ability imo. At least Liverpool has Klopp who could develop Nunez to a point where the transfer fee doesn't seem so bad. Given the instability at United, Nunez is much more likely to end up as another expensive flop here and it's a coin toss whether Ten Hag will still be here in two years time.
  17. As Joyce said, it'll come down to price. Portuguese media were reporting a few months ago that Benfica would not accept less than €80m. That asking price either seems to have increased or the English press are using € and £ interchangeably again because the price being reported now is £80-85m. I think that's a bit too much for Nunez because right now he has pretty much the same weaknesses as Lukaku but with a worse scoring record and only one good season under his belt. Klopp could develop him to be worth the price though.
  18. Looks like Brazzo is really starting to piss off Liverpool. ETA. Confirmed by Joyce too.
  19. Looks like Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Monaco for Tchouameni - €80m + €20m in add-ons. Modric will also be extending his contract for one more season.
