      It’s going to be so tough to compete against City whilst they have this guy. They’re leaking goals, but this guy is a goal machine. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t break the goal scoring record. He might break it two or three times.


      I think we’re going to need around 100 points to win the league going forward. Hopefully Haaland goes to Madrid in 3 or 4 years.

      Knowing how far teams are now behind City it’s even less likely BIG MONEY a will be invested as that’s what it’s going to take just to try and catch them up.  :f_doh:

      The thing is, as good as city are and as much as they have invested, they have destroyed the league.
      Why would any owner want to spend hundreds of millions on transfers when city have already amassed a massive advantage?

      Remember it started over a decade ago. They would buy players on massive wages (because it was the only way to entice them to city) and when they were surplus to requirements they didn’t have to sell to buy. No, they just signed a new upgrade and loaned out the original player for the remainder of his contract and also paid the majority of his wages as well.
      Can you imagine any sane business owner with a model using that strategy?
      With the exception of Newcastle (who may try something similar) the rest of the clubs have to get their transfer policy spot on and then try to achieve what their club has never done before and get to 90 points just to stand a chance.

      If you have one bad window or a few unlucky injuries, bad luck. City will be over the hill and far away before you can come up with a plan B.

      So I don’t blame our owners for not spending £100m on Bellingham. He probably wasn’t available anyway and it’s unlikely we would buy a short term replacement as that would probably eat into the Bellingham fund.
      Mbappe was a dream and only about three clubs on the planet can afford his wages.

      So, as fans, we are left with a choice. Have responsible owners who use sound business models to run their franchise, or sell out and become like city and PSG.

      Unless all clubs are fan owned or we all join this super league, no club will compete in this league...
      Unless you have a fantastic transfer policy, a fantastic manager and manage to get to 90+ points consistently. But even then, that may take 3/4 seasons to begin to flourish and you are lucky these days to last 3/4 months if results go against you.

      Shah gone to Rashid. Little edge to Salt down the leg side.

      Pretty much game over anyway, given how far behind Pakistan are.

      86-4.

      124 to win off 46 balls.

      He is quality. So are city. But the league is dead.


      Looks dead for the foreseeable future Bob doesn’t it unless your a City fan, vast becoming just a walk in the park for the cnuts. Liverpool dominated once, then it was United, now it’s City. Only saving grace is United & Liverpool did it without oil rich barons. We both dominated the way it should be done.

      We now have to play same game and both get new owners, sadly those owners look like they need to be oil barons if we’re both to compete again. Many won’t like that but it’s the only way I can see it.

      City will have the title wrapped up by March unless Arsenal can somehow sustain their form until then.

      forget the league for anyone even Arsenal who will slip up several times this season. But CL football is vital but we are nowhere near that at the moment

      Well we're only 4 points off 4th place that should be minimum achievement this season with maybe one domestic cup trophy, although that might be a stretch.

      But if we don't finish 4th it will be Klopp's worst season here for sure.

      Another hatrick for the beast in blue. What a player, what a talent, what a star this lad is.

      No idea why Gerrard keeps playing Watkins absolute sh*te in front of goal.

      Clearly peaked after that fluke game against us.
