let's analyze @93.20blue's history.

Rodri - Said done on july 1 or 2nd - deal was announced on the 3rd - accurate.
Koulibaly (2019) - Said city are not interested.
Cancelo - At first, said won't happen UNLESS city sell danilo first - which was the case.
Cancelo 2 - On august 2nd, said cancelo was having his medical on august 6th. Cancelo was announced august 7th. accurate.
Angelino - Said on july 3rd that he's currently at the etihad signing the contract. he was announced july 3rd. accurate.
Sane (2019) - Said he was staying. He did in fact stay that season, though he was injured in the community shield 3 days before that post. Accurate
Laporte injury (2019) - Said he was out for 4 to 5 months. He ended up being out for 4 months. accurate.
Sancho (2020) - Said he's off to chelsea. inaccurate, but not city related.
Aouar & Almada - Said two players whose names start with A will be joining in the summer, after prodding it was clear he meant Ake and Aouar. one happened, didn't happen. Inaccurate.
Pep & CAS court - Said pep will sign a new contract after we'll win the upcoming cas court. Semi accurate - we won the cas court and pep renewed - but he renewed in november.
Dias & Koulibaly - Said on JUNE 24th (!!!) that city are going to spend big on a CB but he thinks dias is first choice. massively and impressively accurate as no one even mentioned dias at this point.
Ake & torres - Said on july 27th that they will both sign next week - and they both did. accurate.
Koulibaly 2 - Said on july 27th napoli are playing hardball and he expects us to go for someone else. accurate.
Aouar - Said on july 27th he was informed this is done but is being kept quiet. Inaccurate.
Harry kane - Said in summer of 2020 that we're working on a deal for kane. Several journalists in the year since have confirmed we were working on kane but diverted our attention to messi, so I denote this as accurate.
Koulibaly 3 - Said he was informed koulibaly was done, but is being delayed because of messi. inaccurate
Kounde - Says the club moved away from koulibaly and expects the kounde deal to happen, otamendi to be gone. inaccurate with regards to kounde, but didn't say it was done.
Grealish - "Keep your eye on grealish" in september 2020. who knows if we were actually in for him back then! but i will still denote this as accurate :)
Grealish 2 - Says fee agreed at 82m + add ons in july 16th. Perhaps that was the case, we won't know. i'll denote this as somewhat accurate.
Kane - Said kane deal was off on august 23rd. Kane confirms he was staying on august 25th. Accurate.
Ronaldo - Said on friday morning united are hijacking the deal. Extremely and impressively accurate.

That's all I got. To me, this seems very accurate overall, with a few blips that can mostly be attributed to the everchanging nature of football transfers, that can be on and off in the blink of an eye. I see no reason to doubt him for the most part.
Stalker alert!! stalker alert!!

I’m not sure why people have the conception we’ve fucked this window up!

Guardiola quotes on Kane:
“We didn’t talk with Tottenham, not even one offer, because they didn’t want to negotiate and when one team doesn’t negotiate, there is nothing to say. Tottenham didn’t want to talk, so we didn’t talk.”

Reading between the lines we tried to contact Levy to see if they wanted to discuss the sale of Harry Kane to us and they said they don’t want to sell.

We don’t have a plan B as there is nobody else we wanted, nobody else we think it is worth spending money on as they’re not worth it over what we have.

Ronaldo became available, I can’t find any quotes but it looks like we agreed to pay his wages if he was on a free, he wasn’t.

We got our main target from his boyhood club and people are complaining, it’s the same team as we had last year, plus one of England’s most promising players.

If Haaland’s release clause is true, it’s Munich or Manchester surely?

He would be cup tied for the group stages but could play in the knockout stages.
You can register 1 player now after theyve been "cup tied". this is what we call the "coutinho rule" UEFA literally changed the rules after how stupid a "marquee" signing in January looked when they could not play in the biggest comp in Europe because they moved from 1 big club to another big club.

We need someone else to verify this, @samuelyeboah might be having us on! ;-)

Seems 93.20 is accurate when it comes to transfers. So this news about January is exciting
I just cant see it. Maybe well do a pre-agreement in January but I can see the player finishing his year at Dortmund. They have CL to play.
