Was about to post similar. We can’t continue with 20+ shots with minimum goal conversion in away games. We seem okay at home. It would be pretty negligent by the board to go into this season in this position unless something is done behind the scenes.
I don’t get this de-stabilizing wage structure. All our players aren’t on the same money, some earn more than others and it’s all fine. The board will decide his worth and the same goes for future contract negotiations with likes of De Bruyne. A couple might have clauses to match highest earner.
Maybe Pep really wanted Kane and the board ‘tried’ to make it happen. However Levy playing hardball might have actually played right into our boards hands in that Haaland was their main target all along and it allowed us to drop out of Kane without damaging relationship with Pep. We never did...
Not many, if any positions where £50m players are obviously elite, the best players attracting the best clubs. Having the money to buy these players is only a part of the package. We may have to get used to more windows like this.
