    Bruno Guimaraes

    I don't think they actually do. I think they broke rules by causing a fuss, and if it went to court they would have lost, but they dragged things out and he changed his mind rather than cause the cult to turn on him. However, I don't know the actual wording of the contract, so that's all a...

    Was that agreeing? I didn't read it that way, fair enough.

    Bruno Guimaraes

    It isn't, but you think Haaland would have agreed to go to Bournemouth if they'd offered it? You think they'd have been able to afford his wages as well? For the very top players there are very few clubs who can afford them or they'd move to. That's partly why the fee sometimes isn't that high...

    Bruno Guimaraes

    I know, but that's not got anything to do with my post. My point is that if a player doesn't want to leave, there's no point offering a club the release fee. I think Suarez did want to go, but the fuss that was made about it and the delaying tactics meant he ended up staying. He was more or...

    Bruno Guimaraes

    No point activating any clause if you know the player has no intention of joining you, or would ask for way more than you could afford.

    Yeah possibly, but it's not doing it on purpose. It's like for less than a second and without percentages, just the positions change.

    Media Discussion - 2023/24

    Anybody seen the BBC article "The best Premier League dynasties, who was the greatest?" You have to rank Pep's City, 2 Ferguson sides, Mourinho's Chelsea and Wenger's Arsenal. I obviously put the correct team top, us, but after I submitted united jumped to the top with us second. Anybody else...

    Time to forget this fella, no great loss anyway.

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    There's only so much they could investigate without our involvement. They were looking at half the picture at most. Once they have the full picture they can say it's a different story and nothing to look at.

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    I think the PL have to stress how many hours the investigated, how many documents they checked, how many experts were involved etc. Really explain how thorough they were and how every doubt was answered. You are right though, it won't stop everyone. It would stop the majority of the mainstream...

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    There's a "clear and obvious" way out for the PL which preserves the brand and makes them look decent regulators. "Following the release of 6 or 7 edited emails out of over 3 million illegally obtained emails by a.hacker, there were legitimate concerns raised by PL members about how City were...

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    It's basically been: Them: "give us all your documents" Us: "which ones? You don't need them all" Them: "you aren't co-operating!" Us: "we're trying to"

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    Shows exactly how he wants to portray things doesn't it. Alternatively, he could say, "if you ignore the main stadium/shirt sponsor Etihad, 6 of the next 9 biggest sponsors are not from the UAE." That would read a bit different though, wouldn't it. MSIAC (that's not Martin Samuels, just to...

    Khaldoon's end of season review

    Absolutely agree about your main point tbh, that season was worse than the last Mancini one. The whole season was just treading water until Pep - which tbf, I'd say was worth it.

    Chelsea Thread - 2023/24 | Poch has left (pg254)

    Poch is a decent manager. Maybe 7/10 level. Not amazing, not spectacular, not a guaranteed trophy winner. But he is better than most and they can do worse. It'll be interesting to see who's next - plus where Poch goes. Wouldn't be surprised if united went for him. He'd be an improvement on what...

    Blinkfire Analytics.... "Venture-capital backed" and based in Chicago. I very much doubt those stats, but they've gone and put them out there now, I'm sure Liverpool's American hedge-fund owners will be pleased.

    Statues at the ground

    Good point about Pep, but... No Ederson? 6 PLs so far plus CL? Dias and Ake have 4 PLs out of 4. Foden's got 6 already and from the academy. He's potentially going to be our greatest ever player. Rodri? Has won so much, scored big goals and nobody can beat us when he plays! I know we...
