Good little player. Made the right move for himself.

Somewhat off topic, but has another country ever had such depth at right-back than England have right now?

Trent Alexander-Arnold
Reece James
Kieran Trippier
Justin James
Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Tariq Lamptey

Crazy!

He went to a club who, just when things were starting to look stale, the higher-ups decided to support it's long-tenured Argentine coach who had already shown he could improve them, with an aggressive squad rebuild whilst moving into a new stadium.

Funny that.

Including the window Trippier joined, they have made a profit of £40m in their transfer business up to now. It may have been an aggressive rebuild, but they were hardly chucking money around that they didn’t have.

ENIC OUT NOW !!! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Please stop with the ENIC lies for once

18/19 - 110m minus net spend


19/20 - They signed Joao Felix for 120m hottest young prospect in Europe. We signed Gedson Fernandes and FatBerg

Give it a rest please

Was fuck all to do with ENIC.

Last summer, they had a £14m net spend. The summer before, when Trippier joined, as I very fucking clearly stated, they made a £57m profit. So in the time since Trippier joined, they’ve made over £40m in transfer profit.

I didn’t include windows before Trippier joined, becasue I was responding to a post that said he joined a club that had gone stale and was started to be supported. But yes, a year before, they had pumped money in, so he joined after they were going through their rebuild, not before.

2 ex-Spurs lads on there and we end up with Doherty/Aurieras our first choice right-backs.

If anyone thinks our transfer dealings over the last 4 years haven't been utterly woeful they need their heads tested.

To be fair, it does help them that their whole stadium build cost 240m euros. Significantly less than ours.

Our stadium was built as a multi sports and entertainment complex primarily with NFL in mind. (The clubs own words)
Athletico re-built / renovated a soccer stadium primarily with Athletico in mind.

To start using the oveblown inflated cost of the stadium and associated debt as a means to defend ENIC is taking the buscuit mate. It really fucking is.
 
Also, they were only able to fund this rebuild that included Trippier by selling three of their best players for over £240m.
So what your saying is they run the club like Levy , only, successfully, properly with a plan that works, with loyalty to their manager, with a vastly superior transfer strategy in terms of buying the right players.

Basically Levy is just shit at trying to do what A M do

They weren’t bean counting. They weren’t haggling. They had a plan of what to do if their top players fancied a change.

Our lot sat on their hands and said “this is fine” as the fire grew around them.

The overall lack of a plan and terrible squad building has now been laid bare.

They are very similar to us in the way they are ran yes. The major difference is that they’ve found a manager who appears to have the complete faith of the owners and fans, so they can suffer the odd downturn in fortune without going nuclear. This continuity is what works for them.

On the other hand, well, you only have to spend five minutes on here to see what some of our fans are like. And Levy is no more patient or understanding. It’s his biggest flaw, in my mind, that he just can’t seem to see that constant manager sackings are achieving nothing. If he deserves a bag of oranges to the balls for anything, that’s top of my list.

If we give the next guy the patience and time AM give Simeone, we’ve a much better chance of success, because we can’t buy it like City or Chelsea.
