Lacazette. Perfect for us. I prefer him to Aubameyang. aubameyang is more a lone wolf striker whereas Laca is the team man. Poor mans Benzema but still would have presence in the box.
7-8 yrs ago yes.....wanted him before he went to Arsenal but not sure he can still do it

I’d have been buzzing if we’d signed Ronaldo. I think we need a CF and we may need to take a chance on one who is not yet the finished product or considered top class some one like Calvert Lewis would do for me.
I do hope Utd struggle to manage having Martial Greenwood Sancho Cavani Rashford Ronaldo they can’t all play/be happy.
Nice fat cheques and zebra club pyjamas probably smooth it a little

Still don't get how PSG manage it. They have about 40 players in their first team squad most on huge wages. The French league doesn't get as much money as the premier league. They didn't win the league or champions League so not so much income there. I know they might sell Mbappe but they spent 120m on him in the first place.

We have quite a few fringe players leeching off our club. Players who sign never to be heard from again like Patrick Roberts etc that we could get rid of to make way for a guy like Haaland. His agent might get a huge was out of it and Alfie too, maybe he deserves it for that workplace injury he received on our watch lol it's not like we do these things often and everyone would lose their minds. He would be worth the wage and even if he left in a few years he would have value like Mbappe now
They are in a nothing league with rivals/competition that have little to no power in the game. We are in a league with a bunch of cnut clubs who think they are bigger than the game. Put PSG in the Prem and they would get the same shit and scrutiny we get.

so people saying that based on last season we will win the league, still be dominant etc are not thinking about this correctly.....

We have a good team and we will be fine but others have improved big time where we havent at all. Grealish is a decent player but we were so overstocked in that department that it could be argued we didnt need him (though if KDB's injury issues keep appearing then we may need him more and need him to step up maybe more than he is ready/able)
Keeping (hopefuly) bernardo and laporte is a bonus

However NOT getting a striker (if we dont) is going to set us backwards. Especially against the likes of Chelsea, Scousers and now utd whohave imprved their squad considerably...Ronaldo, Sancho, Varane are all very good players.......the money doesnt matter,,,,,we have seen even over the last decade no matter how much they spend it doesnt really impact them negatively as some would hope it would/should
How can it have set us backwards considering we didn't have a striker last season either? Yes, the others have improved but I think the impact of Grealish is going to be massively greater than some believe.

I didn't feel deflated in the first place, so no, nothing has changed in that respect. We were being ridiculed by who? Twitter users? Seriously, who gives a shit what some random no-mark thinks on Twitter?
Agree entirely
For probably the majority of my lifelong support for City I have endured hostility, being patronized and being the subject of amusement due to supporting a City team and management that did not deserve our loyal support.
As my dad said to me all those years ago anyone can support united, supporting City is character building.

Greenwood is going to be a top player imo. Signing Ronaldo might hold him back. Calvert-Lewin would be perfect at City but he'd be unavailable imo. Pointless bidding for him.

If ogs is pressured to play ronaldo then James, greenwood, martial and rashford are all gonna be fighting for starts, as a fit cavani doesn't get dropped imho.

I could see them offloading martial if a bid came in.

Buying that **** in really was the most unecessary football transfer for them, all done because they couldn't bear to see him here.
