  2. @Joshua it's just incredible how PSG can't be sanctioned because of the impact it would have on the world Cup next year. They have not abided by any FFP what so ever. Mbappe and Neymar combined 300m in one window now they have Messi, Ramos, Donnaruma in one window. That doesn't seem right. Barca weren't allowed to re sign Messi Spanish law doesn't allow people to take a 50% wage drop and even if he played for free they'd still be over budget. They could have resigned Messi but wouldn't have been able to register him. I find the Messi situation weird as he was "upset" about leaving but this is the 3rd time he's asked to leave I believe. I think it was all a ploy to force a move to PSG where he would be able to get more money which he's now accomplished. By not resigning he knew that the club couldn't afford to keep him and they'd have no alternative but to let him go. If he cared that much he'd have signed a contract sooner.
  3. @Chris I fully agree with all that. Messi has achieved so much in his career and is without doubt one of the greatest of all time but leaving Barcelona opened up so much for himself. He could have even returned home and played for his boyhood club. He could have even gone to the Premier League, obviously wages would have been an issue. But going to a club that has no real challenge that make finals every year and is constantly fighting for the title shows so much lack of ambition. Jake's right the whole Barca squad was asked to drop wages and even some were asked to leave to make space available so Messi could resign as well as being able to register new signings like Aguero Memphis etc. Spurs wouldn't be able to afford him anyway since they're paying off their stadium still. @Dripsey3 exactly the same here. Lower down there's more of a level playing field that makes it so much more competitive. It just baffles me how a club can get in this much debt and nothing happens to them. Meanwhile lower down clubs get debts and all of a sudden they're looked at and punished. @liampie I enjoy the Premier League but Champions League does not interest me one bit unless it has an all English final.

  8. With Messi leaving Barcelona and PSG looking the likely destination there's a few things that have come to light. Apparently PSG are going to be able to sign Messi on top of signing Donnaruma and Ramos already while also keeping their key players and won't face any sanctions for the next 3 years. The reason they won't have sanctions for the next 3 years? By not sanctioning PSG they are helping World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar. The quote reads as the following "The Committee in charge of Financial Fair Play have decided not to apply any economic sanctions on PSG until 2023. This was decided to help Qatar as they're hosting the World Cup in 2022" Effectively they're saying that PSG have the power to break all rules possible and face no consequences for the next few years. In that time they can achieve multiple things before sanctions are put in place. If any are. Plus, isn't the PSG owner under investigation for bribing UEFA officials? Manchester City were investigated for breaching FFP and cooking the books hence the suspension from the CL yet it got overturned they made the final now they have splashed £100m while fresh evidence has come to light. Barcelona are a club being run into the ground by poor ownership as they need to offload €135m to register the 4 new signings. Inter are on the verge of liquidation hence the sale of so many players. No wonder these clubs want the ESL to take off, none more so than Real Madrid. Talking of the ESL, Premier League clubs were fined £3m each for the part they played which is nothing to those teams. Meanwhile clubs in leagues one and two who have had poor ownership and no funding from them get punished with points deductions and fines that they simply can't afford. Where is the logic? There's a reason why clubs struggle to make it in the Premier League and that's because they haven't got the funds to compete and when they have that opportunity like Newcastle did with the take over, the "Top 6" clubs complain and the PL bow down to them and stop it happening. Why? Because it would disrupt the balance.
  9. @DangerousSausage tis true, I thought with the way Villa were spending they were creating a team around him and I thought he'd have stayed given the captaincy building a team round him and villa progressing aswell as being a star and getting call ups for England. I think he will be bench warming if not careful given the squad rotation of City but yeah if he wants regular cl football and trophies City is the best option. Bout the only good thing for him in the move.
  10. @Fozzy I do think going to Manchester City could benefit him in some ways but long term I think it's a bad move. He will get chances for the first couple seasons but after that will he see much game time especially when transfers etc come in? Staying at Villa wouldn't have done much for Grealish's career in terms of not playing at the highest level he deserves. I hope I'm wrong and he thrives at City and he regularly plays. As for Pep not winning the champions league is exactly what I can't understand. He's deemed as the best manager to grace us in recent years but as you say the 2 clubs since Barca he hasn't done much in european football. A Premier league and carabao cup is really his most consistent but lack of fa cup or champions league speaks volumes for me.

  12. While I'm happy Grealish has got his well deserved move to a club playing Champions League football, I personally don't think City is the right move. He may win trophies etc but in years to come I think Pep and City will slowly hamper his progress. There's a number of players City have done it too. Look at Mahrez for example, plays excellently but is often left out of the starting line ups. As for Pep Guardiola, I do think he's a good coach but he hasn't had much of a challenge. World Class Barca team consisting of Messi, Xavi and Iniesta. A Bayern team that were already dominating Bundesliga. Now a Man City team that has unlimited funds it seems. Pep said that City had no money to spend but then splashes out £100m on Grealish. Kane and Messi are linked to the club. Don't forget Man City were suspended from the CL for breaching FFP but later got overturned and now there's fresh evidence against them for breaching FFP yet they still happily splash the cash. If City go on to sign Kane or Messi or even both then it is safe to say that the PL are bowing down to the "top 6 elite" There's also a quote going around from 2009 in which Guardiola said that modern day football saddens him because clubs choose to spend big money on players rather than utilitise the youth squad. Before anyone defends this, remember Man City built a brand new state of the art training facility that is supposed to be beneficial for youth players.
  13. @Chris I've said it all before, if I was Southgate then I'd do everything in my power to convince Vardy to join up with the England squad. Especially when like Southgate said we were looking to get in behind. Someone like Vardy has been prolific at doing this. As I put in the article like you've just said, there's a togetherness about this squad like we've never experienced before and it's all down to Southgate. The future does look bright under Gareth Southgate and people might not appreciate his teams before kick offs but when it comes to games he gets the job done and his game plans work. He just needs to work on his decision making during games at crucial times like not bringing someone like Grealish on sooner. I think Southgate will find the balance between defence and attack as he's had one tournament where we were weak at the back and good up front to exceptional at the back but not much going forward. We rely on Kane too much, yes. But, as the tournament progressed we started to see how effective he could be dropping deep and the likes of Sterling running in behind for Kane to find passes as he was vital in the goal that Shaw scored against Italy in the final. I do think there's more to come from Southgate and I think he can build a special team.
  14. I like the mint green one. Traditionally I'd like the black and white but the past 2 away tops have been brilliant. I do like the pink goalkeeper top aswell, not so sure about the green one though.
