The difference between a big club and a small club.

If Conte hasn't walked by the summer I'll genuinely be shocked.
The saving grace is that Rangnick is being offered a long term contract as ManU manager, Conte is unlikely to find another decent club in PL in the near future - all the jobs seem secure
 
As usual Spurs are used as a stalking horse to get the deal the player and agent want. Offered to Spurs Levy offers a hire purchase agreement and his mums old bird cage. Liverpool trump up the money required (albeit without a bird cage) and hey presto they get the player. Personally I’m not too bothered as I don’t think he is anywhere near as good as Sonny
 
Not even vaguely surprised. The second I read they were interested the other day, I figured that’s it. Either we throw a shit load of cash and perks at such a high profile target from day one, or don’t even bother. The haggling game does not work when an actual top club is also interested.

All that said, I don’t think he was a priority signing. Where’s the RB? The Playmaker? The proper striker? Why is Doc still here? And Dele? And Ndombele? Who is Ambabata or whatever the fuck his name is? Is he going to give us that extra percent that Tripps mentioned Dembele provided?

Conte has made his feelings crystal clear and we, as usual, don’t appear to be listening to him.
 
This is what you get when you wait till the last minute to make that 5-10% saving. Other club comes in just slams down the money thats asked.
Time for ppl to realize that this club will never buy top shelf players that are even remotely linked any other top 6 club. Best we will get is players over everton and palace.

This sort of thing will only get worse with the oil rich 3 snapping every good player up.

How do you know this? Simply we did all the bidding,the price was agreed then Liverpool matched it that left a straight choice for the player!
 
I honestly don’t think he’ll care if he is genuinely pissed off. Plus if he is a free agent jobs will “suddenly” become available
In particular, how safe is Arteta? Imagine if Conte left us feeling cheated, and woolwich came in saying 'they failed to back you, we'll promise for once in our lifetime to do so just to make Spurs look even more shit, we'll even show you the war chest in an account'. That would be horrific. Almost impossible though thank god. This isn't a Sky One drama.
 
If we're competing with Liverpool we don't stand a chance. We may have Conte but they have Klopp. They also have a far better team and much more chance of success currently. They also need to replace the likes of Firmino and Mane over the next year or so.

We should make a cheeky bid for Harvey Barnes.

I said this a while ago it was sooooo obvious. Why do you guys still fall for it? Spurs transfers don't happen the way this played out.

Luis Diaz: Liverpool make move for Porto and Colombia winger​

By Mandeep SangheraBBC Sport
Last updated on7 hours ago7 hours ago.From the sectionLiverpool

Luis Diaz
Diaz has scored 20 goals in 37 appearances for club and country this season
Liverpool are trying to sign Colombia winger Luis Diaz from Porto in the current transfer window.
The deal, if completed, is expected to be worth €45m (£37.5m) plus a maximum of €15m in potential bonuses.
 
Why would any player want to come to our club? It's a stepping stone into continuous high expectations, a club in constant fluctuation into nothingness with very little chance of silverware. Hardly enticing is it!

Had we tried to attract a player like Diaz even a year or so post CL final, we'd have no problem. But now? :contescrewface:
150 - 200 reasons a week someone will come
 
I know this forum would be boring as fuck if everyone was like me, but I just can't be arsed with media/twitter speculation and hearsay, and it genuinely surprises me how much so many people buy into it and how angry what is most likely absolute bollocks makes them.

This whole forum is based around a bunch of men running around a field kicking a spherical thing filled with air.

It’s all absolute bollocks at the end of the day.

Just good fun to get angry with total random shit isn’t it.
