Honestly, United coming in for Sanchez is the best news we've had in the last six months

why don't city just straight up overpay for whoever Arsenal want to replace him with and we can all move on

also Theo Walcott moving on should have happened years ago, 20mil is good business for a never has been (well maybe briefly he did have that one good season. It really seemed at times like he would come good but I guess my initial feeling on him ~2008 was correct, thta being that he had only really played a few quality games at that point (England hat trick v Croatia, Brum Eduardo game, CL home to Slavia Praha fall 07, maybe one more) and that he was largely shit (lacking football intelligence and not able to capitalize on his pace enough although his finishing did seem to improve over time and peak in that one good season he had in 2012-3. i've just had a look at his stats to confirm that and didn't realize he'd hit 19 in 37 appearances in 16-17 but that doesn't really change the overall disappoint seeing his new hairdo and ever wispy beard bring to my soul every time

2-0 tottenham going off on the stretcher was real funny though

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... ng-chelsea

Three former youth-team footballers at Chelsea have launched legal claims against the club after allegations that black players were subjected to horrific racism by their own coaches, including physical attacks and one instance when Graham Rix allegedly threw a cup of hot coffee in the face of one of their young prospects.


this dates back to the pre-Abramovich Chelsea, which I'm guessing American boarders won't remember. but completely unsurprising and presumably rampant.

Will never forget those early years of watching football on tv as a young lad, and the forest of arms sieg heiling at Stamford Bridge and chanting 'C-F-C-N-F'. Fucking despicable, and I've hated Chelsea ever since.

£400k a week and a £15m signing bonus, who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to get that on the books

Everton should just get Sanchez instead of Walcott considering the prices. Sanchez rotating with a Roondog-Niasse-Tosun frontline would be great

So I guess the news is that Jesus' injury got a boost, and got shortened to 4-6 weeks as opposed to months, so this is the leverage (besides whatever assurances they've supposed to have gotten from Sanchez already) that City are using to hold firm. Good to see this from the team, no more blank checks handed over whenever they're interested in someone. I'd rather us get Fred and a CB than splash 35m on a player that will maybe sell for 10-12m in 2 years. Him+Ozil couldn't save Wenger, he most certainly can't save Mourinho by himself.

I dunno I guess, it certainly isn't my money but I suppose it's better for the game/City's rep of throwing down money at random talented players, Jo, Roque SC, etc.
They certainly aren't going to spend in the 100m+ range any time soon, (I guess they were in for Mbappe for a hot sec) but it shows they have a long-term plan as opposed to just buying whatever good players are available that window and hoping it works out. Ahem.

No English team will ever win the CL again without an insanely deep squad with the schedule the FA hands out. Not to mention the goons coming at them week after week with career-ending, unpunished tackles they've had to endure. They've been crazy lucky this season. (seriously any one of KDB/Sterling/Aguero/Jesus should be out for the season rn)
