      General Football Gossip
      May 31, 2018 04:49:39 pm


      So what makes a man who wins 3 back to back Champions League Finals quit at Real Madrid? Something obviously doesn't add up. With all the speculation about Bale & Ronaldo I can't help but think this has something to do with it. It's been documented Bale wants more playing time if he's to stay.

      Thoughts?

      Just strikes me that real.madrid and Barcelona are clubs where the shelf life for a manager is 3 to 4 years due to the circus that follows them around or he has quit because var will be in the cl next year

      Not sure it makes sense though. Successful managers have long history at clubs. Look at Shanks, Paisley & Fergie. Between them they have over 40 years at their respective clubs. What do owners want these days. I'd happily take 3 Champions leagues as a owner in 3 seasons.

      I don't know that I believe that's the case. I think that's Courtois' people making noise to get him a world record deal at Chelsea. I could be wrong.

      Not often Sky Sports wrong though. You'd take him wouldn't you?? Top keeper, keeps low profile as well which i like in football. Far to many post on social media for my liking.  ;D

      To be fair, the only time I watch him play is when we play Chelsea as I can't stand to watch them play :)

      So I don't know if he fits what Klopp wants...its he a sweeper keeper? I'm not sure that he is as good with his feet as Klopp wants his keeper to be. I mean he's typically thought of as a top keeper so from that perspective he would seem to be better than Karius.

      Well i have seen him come off his line and out of the box  many times so yes he is a sweeper.. He improves your side so would take him in a flash...

      Lloris is the same from Spurs but he isn't available as of yet.

      Amazing the amount of players seeking a move to one of the big two in La Liga always pull the heart string pulling covers like 'I miss my family' or 'My wife is missing her grandads's turtle' etc etc.

      Stop f**king about and just come straight. You ain't fooling nobody.

      Jumped before being pushed. Managers don't last that long at Madrid, so obviously decided to f**k off on his own terms.

      Negotiations have broken down over a new contract, Chelsea have started looking at Alisson as his replacement. I'd be all over Courtois like a rash if I was anyone at our club.

      Just read that Pochettino said he's happy at Spurs, he has a beautiful project, 100% committed to his project, he likes his job now, Spurs's management like his work so far, he has just renewed his contract and he doesn't think too much about the future. 

      When questioned about whether he sees himself on the bench of Real Madrid, he said "one day", just as he may go to any other club in the future, or Argentinian national team, or Newell's, or back to Espanyol. If one day he's given an opportunity, why not?

      This is hardly going to stop the speculation, isn't it?

      From the article;

      Quote
      But for certain successes to make a bonus system.

      Can guarantee them bonuses would have to be of the level to make up for his loss in wage.

      This is a player who threw a strop over a birthday cake, there’s no way he’d play for £1 a week without it being worth his while one way or another in the long run.

      Obviously it’s a comical story but none the less, his days of playing at the top are done with.

      £71.6 million for Kepa. The mind boggles. DeGea most be worth over 100 million then.

      Personally I’d put Kepa in the Butland bracket, sheer panic buy for a mid table team keeper.
      World record fee for this keeper has to demand a world record transfer fee for De Gea, exceeding that of Neymar.
