      I literally cannot find the articles you've claimed to have read. I've looked for 20 minutes. They don't exist or I'm not searching for what you searched for.
      I found the one where it says VVD 3rd best defender in the world. Whatever happened to the Castrol player ratings? They used to be good for stuff like this.

      Yep I couldn’t find one that had him outside the top 5. Only exceptions were articles in 2017 or articles about the World Cup.

      I've probably missed a couple out, but I'd say below defenders other than Ramos are around equal, but Van Dijk just edges it because he is younger which means his stamina will be a bit higher.

      Kompany - 32
      Godin - 32
      Chiellini - 34
      Pique - 31
      Ramos - 32
      Alderweireld - 29
      Van Dijk - 27

      As much as I hate Ramos I'd easily have him in the top5 along with Godin, Chiellini, VVD and Pique

      You have to search ‘Van Dijk not in top 10’ and put the bullshit filter on.

      I think since Alex Jones was removed from the web a lot of these sources have disappeared.

      No one seen this rumour we have a premium price now if Barca comes in for any other player after Coutinho fuckery? Extra 100 mill on top of market value?

      It was reported in the Times today, looks legit.

      Apparently Michael Edwards negotiated the clause, and yes it effectively adds a 100m Euro surcharge to any bid Barca make on one of our players until 2020.

      Never heard of something like that but credit where it's due, good idea!

      Aspas is actually a good player. A gifted player who has knack of scoring goals. I don't know what happened here, maybe it was br. Maybe the new culture,league.i don't know.
      but Aspas is a good striker.

      Depends who the other option is. Let's just if it's him or dybala. I would have taken dybala in a heartbeat.

      If we plan on using the 4231 setup more regularly, I think either a 10 or 9 (preferably 10 so we can play Firmino as the 9) would make the most logical sense in January.

      If we go after Pulisic, I’d bet it will be a deal similar to Keita. Make the deal now but don’t get him till summer.

      That could work. I'm all for it. Great young talent. He is one of the few players I think the whole forum agrees on.

      But i don't think he's getting all that much playing time in Dortmund, in which case he'd be more likely to come in Jan.

      Throw in another 5 million and get him in January. Our midfield is crying out for a player like him.

      Agreed.
      Would be a big signing for us, strikes me as a Sane signing for City. Young, rapid and bags of potential but already showing such great signs at such a young age. We need more players like that, other than Mane and Salah we don’t really have that raw explosive pace in the attack.

      Not to mention it makes perfect business sense for the owners, Would open up a lot more commercial stuff for us in the States and is our deal with New Balance set to end? Getting a bigger market in the States could lead to a bigger deal. I’m not looking at it this way, just a way the owners might.

      So if Joe Gomez is out for a couple of months or longer, are we in the market for a center back? Not sure why Lovren wasn't even a backup tonight, and not sure what Jürgen's thoughts would be with Matip as a starting XI regular.

      Hopefully Joe is back soon, but....serious question.

      Matip and Lovren concern me. Matip slightly more so, thought he struggled, especially in the first half.

      Need Gomez back ASAP.
