    Ashley Williams. He'd add a bit of steel to our back 4.

    Apparently so but in the end he didn't play as he was doing community service.

    Probably watching Pickford seeing as Ederson is looking a bit shaky.

    Net Transfer Spend (2010-17):

    1. Man City - £815M
    2. PSG - £662M
    3. Man United - £647M
    4. Chelsea - £396M
    5. Barcelona - £301M
    6. Juventus - £294M
    7. Bayern Munich - £268M
    8. Liverpool - £223M
    9. Arsenal - £219M
    10. Real Madrid - £172M


    I understand that from the takeover the club had to pay above the market price in terms of fees and wages to attract the best talents, but after that we should do it better and spend wisely but unfortunatelly we didnt sort out yet.

    I hope our net spend is always stupidly high.

    I want us to buy players when they're on the up, keep them until they're over 30 and worthless.

    English teams who have low net spends are teams who sell their best players. Bring it down with some academy or investment players who can't make it here but get sold for a few million profit, but otherwise keep that spend high.

    Chelsea have a lower net spend than us and are probably kicking themselves for having sold KdB, Salah, Lukaku etc. It's not necessarily a good thing.

    What does our net spend between 2010 and 2013 have to do with Txiki? May as well ask why he thought signing Corradi and Samaras was a good idea.
