any...... spurs.....signings......yet bros.......
4rd for city is the best team in the world
>Robin Olsen wanted by VillaHe's been really poor this season for blades. Lost his place to Wes Foderingham now. Do scouts just watch his Sweden highlights and nothing else?
>>116754400>bowen said once he admires Salah>HE WANTS TO GO TO LIVERPOOLsports journalism needs a cull
>>116754513According to a Villa anon in the last thread he's being wanted so they have an extra squad member. That's it.Burnley v Leicester has just been called off, by the way.
>Burnley Leicester postponedthat'll be 5 games in hand for Burnley now. Going to be some fun fixture congestion later this season
>>116754539bowen is a massive man u fan and beckham is his idol so i can see him going there if anywhere.
>>116754400Why doesnt Cantwell play much? Realised Norwich are shitters? Surely the more you try the better you look to buying clubs?
>>116754513Literally 3rd choice keeper or best case pushes Steer to 3rd. Must be the comfiest job in the world.
>>116754712fug u /ps2g/
>>116754712Still got to do all the gruelling training sessions though. And you'll never get any bonuses
>>116754712did u watch the spurs all or nothing documentary? my fave bit of that is when michel vorm is hanging out and chilling and then suddenly mou asks him to start a match and he's like oh shit
>>116754562As a Leeds fan this makes me happy
Getting last minute panic buy vibes from this window for Arsenal, none of their targets are able to leave their clubs in January apart from Vlahovic but his agent is a sociopath. They had a plan but it looks like they'll just bungle it over the line with some last minute buys of 5th choice players.
Honestly having a 3rd choice GK seems like a waste of money. Your club must've absorbed whole year worth of bad luck if you have your 1st or 2nd GK out for long. Pretty much you can get away putting some academy GK there if the worst really does come.
>>116754849*1st AND 2nd GKs out for longExcuse the mistake
>>116754849it is until your backup keeper is Roberto. Then you'll be very happy to have a 3rd choice keeper
>>116754849well yeah but if we're at the point where clubs have wage bills of £4m a year then it's probably prudent to have a third keeper.
>>116754965*£4m a week
>>116754559>>116754712surely there's a better option than him? what's Karius up to?
This is just so typical of Swedish keepers. Isaksson was the same as Olsen. Horrible at every club but still started every game for the national team and did OK or good.
>>116754400>Newcastle are increasingly keen on signing Norwich's English midfielder Todd CantwellGreat player, but doesn't he play off the left wing? ASM doesn't seem happy to play on the right.
>>116754882Now im reminded that west ham have 4 GKs on their squad. Fabianski, nippleman, randolph, and david martin (do people even remember this dude?)
>>116755121I do if only for him sparing us from Roberto and keeping a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge with a relegation spiral West Ham in his PL debut at like 32
>NUFC will have to break transfer record for Sven Botman as Lille have €55m asking price this window.
>>116755178I’m sounding like my Da now but seriously how much would your Terry’s, your Vidic’s, your Thuram’s, your Nesta’s go for in todays market. Botman has done fuckall, isn’t even in the Dutch squad and he’s quoted at 55m
>EFL blocking Derby's takeover until after the transfer window>Can't resign Jagielka who has been immense for us>Tried to block us playing our own youngsters like Luke Plange for months>Actively helping Boro and Wycombe sue usEFL absolutely SEETHING that were are threatening to stay up. https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/derby-county-takeover-efl-championship-6489774https://twitter.com/JPercyTelegraph/status/1481953377089118213?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet
>>116755222Think £55m is the 'fuck off' price. The issue is that PL teams are able to pay these fees now, even though the player is obviously not worth it.
>>116755307When Chris Wood is a £30m player, anything is possible. Peter Crouch would be Suarez price tier in todays game.
>>116755055the qt can play both sides
>>116755349I seriously hope that Burnley are actually going to use that 30 million, gonna be sad to watch Dyche go down again.
>>116755349Wasn't it 20?
>>116755413£25m according to the BBC
>>116755392If he’s lucky that’ll buy him two average players from Ligue 1.
>>116755245God I hope Derby stay up, they have been hard done by and nothing would bring me more joy to see them overcome a 21 point deduction and cause seethe.
>>116755527>they have been hard done byThey broke the rules and are paying the consequences. Don't like it? Don't cheat.
>>116755527Tbh to not totally collapse and keep playing is pretty impressive
>>116755612> Breaks rules> Cheats> Gets caught> Gets punished> Stays up anywayYeah I’m thinking based as fuck
>>116755612Werent they told their accounting methods were fine and then the efl later were like no actually we're going to punish you now
>>116755222What Newcastle pays shouldn't be reflective of the overall market. They're having to pay 5 times what players are worth because A. Everybody knows they have bags of money, B. Nobody wants to play for relegation fodder and C. Nobody wants to live near Newcastle
>>116755349release clauses are always above the players value. By hitting it, Burnley can't say no which is what newcastle want, 30m to cripple their relegation rival is peanuts now
>>116755245wait, didn't you lot pick up jags last july? so his contract only lasted 6 months?
>>116755642Exactly. The EFL is were paid to 'advise' Derby, and approved it for years. Then when Steve Gibson threatened to sue the EFL, they changed their minds. They aren't fit for purposehttps://www.google.com/amp/s/talksport.com/football/efl/726263/efl-rick-parry-filmed-wigan-administration-linked-bet/amp/
>>116755752All we could sign new players for. How the EFL expect clubs to operate like this I don't know (they don't and want these clubs to fail to make an example of them)
>>116755779hope you lot will be fine in the end, my boy amad diallo also needs to get some gametime and i hope he can be loaned there. he unironically has a higher ceiling than sancho but for some reason the managers keep playing this shitter over him.
EFL are absolute scum. Imagine having a personal vendetta against a club and doing everything they can to relegate them. Everyone is in it for themselves and don't care because it means they wont get relegatedhttps://twitter.com/RobDorsettSky/status/1481962128261226499?cxt=HHwWhoC9mYat_pApAAAA
>>116755767>The EFL is were paid to 'advise' Derby, and approved it for yearsOf everything regarding the Derby shitshow, this is objectively the worst.>your accounts are OK>thanksmany years later>oh wait, they aren't OK>WTF>>116756093Well said.
>>116754743>show up>train in a nice private facility with full catering and every amenity>throw some balls at the first choice keeper>maybe let yourself get scored on in training game to prove to coaching staff they still shouldn't pick you>collect your 50k>drive off in your luxury suv or supercar>think about the best way to go about stubbing your toe on the goalpost in training tomorrow so you will avoid making the bench and you can just sleep in come Saturday>no one expects you to be good anyway so if you do have to play and fuck up they just go well he's our third choice keeper tbf>repeat for 15+ yearseasy money, bonuses or no
>>116755245>efl need proof of funds so that derby can complete the end of season>only realistic way this can be done is if preferred bidder announced and fees from them put into club>efl won't let preferred bidder be announcedThe EFL are fucking infuriating
>>116756093>those commentsGod football tribalism at its worst. If people can't see how fucked all of this is for the fans, then they are forever lost. Yes the previous owner is a cunt but he isn't even in charge anymore
It's actually over Derbybros... I had some hope due to our form but now it's completely fucked. Wayne will leave, our better players sold for peanuts. Well done EFL, may as well have said 'Derby are relegated no matter what' because even if we did stay up, I wouldn't put it past them finding anything to deduct more pts before the final day. We've suffered SO MUCH and then all this shit happens too
>>116756136You have to be that sweet spot of good enough to keep but shit enough to stay on the bench
>>116755025They're apparently also looking into Randolph at Hammers and the guy behind Navas and Donnarumma at PSG.
>>116756170Sadly said tribalism is why all footballing authorities will continue to be the inept shower of cunts that they are.Do Forest fans genuinely want to see their rivalry die?
>>116755767>>116756109For me, it was the part of the case where the EFL said that they don't check the accounts when they're inputted, because they don't have the expertise to check them properly, so they trust that independently audited accounts are accurate, so the EFL can't be responsible for inaccurate accounts. Then, conversely, they spent a year trying to prove that the independent auditors, the ICAEW and the accountant on the commission's panel were all wrongly interpreting accountancy rules and only the EFL's interpretation of accountancy rules were correct.
>>116756158How much has rooney got in the bank? He could have put up a 0% loan to cover the season and then got repaid by the new owners
>>116756136>be a midtable GK for the most of your prime years>now nearing retirement, you can promote yourself as a PL-proven GK with mileage of experience that can contribute as a "senior dressing room presence" and a "good competitor for 1st and 2nd GK"easy minimum 15kpw for next few years
>>116756296>mfw reading thatThat's fucking amazing.
>>116756296For me, it's the part where Steve Gibson, Boro's chairmen and staunch Derby County hater is on the EFL board and has a say in their operations
Imagine being a top class player but you absolutely hate training/working. It would be so fucking infuriating even if you're in 350k a week you have to spend 6-7 hours a day doing the same mundane shit
>>116756440But on the bright side you get to retire at 30 and be an unemployed millionaire for the next half century
This transfer embargo is just another hurdle in Derby great escape that will turn Wazza into the greatest hero in human history
>>116756541Seriously, he's got 100 million quid, he could fix this problem in an instant
Imagine getting mogged so hard by your local rivals, your famous manager comes to our club and wins the European Cup twice, everyone knows Derby as a small town near Nottingham, we have the worldwide fame and you have...a liquidated club.
>>116755055>Great playerHe really isn't. He isn't half as good as people outside Norwich think he is and isn't a quarter as good as he thinks he is.
On a separate note it's putting some really solid credit into Rooney's managerial bank account, all this shit he's dealing with. Setting himself up to be a great crisis manager a la big sam or pulis.
>>116756562how did they do it?
>>116756440I think I'd put up with doing something I don't like for 10-15 years with lots of travel and odd hours if it meant I made tens of millions of pounds over that period.
>Rangnick expects Ronaldo, Sancho, Maguire & Jones to be fit for #MUFC against #AVFC. “I think they'll be available. Cristiano trained yesterday, Harry the day before. We have to wait for the final training session this afternoon but as it seems right now they should be available"
>>116756669>Setting himself up to be a great crisis manager a la big sam or pulis.Agreed, but he won't see himself like that. He'll see himself as an Everton-level manager.
>>116756686Clough was elite. Should have had another European Cup with Derby and a UEFA Cup with Forest if seething continentals didn't cheat him out of the finals.
>>116756669it would be one of the greatest managerial feats to pull it off. Hell if he finishes 23rd its still a great result for him
>>116756705Phil Jones got injured again? He just came back
>>116756729had some calf problem when united played villa but now he's fine. man's body prolly was in shock he could last 90 minutes against wolves so needed to take a break.
>Rangnick on the Premier League: "I wouldn't say it has surprised me. No winter break is what I expected — what surprised me a little is how physically and tactically astute the smaller teams in this league are. Against the bottom teams, it is never easy." #muliveah yeas bundesliga is a fraud league basically
>>116756544>>116756562You're the exact sort of tribalistic retard that keeps your fellow retards at the footballing authorities in power.
>>116757186Why are the EFL retards? No other club has problems with them but Derby. Try stay within the rules
>>116757321>No other club has problems with them but Derby.Except Reading. And Swindon. And before that Wigan. And Bolton. And Birmingham City. And Bury. And Macclesfield.
Fiorentina CEO Joe Barone on Vlahovic: "We have already spoken about Vlahovic. Our speech is clear. He does not want to talk or negotiate. We are going to evaluate what comes to us, but at the moment there is no offer. If #Arsenal comes [with an offer], we will think about it"
>>116757497Think this is proof the Forestmong lacks even fundamental knowledge about the league 'his' club is in. His other clubs were also in that league at the time.
>>116756590I mean he's better than Almiron.
>>116757497Don't forget Oldham.>>116757591You are a fucking moron.
>>116756296I also liked the part where the EFL were asked what they had done to help Derby during this situation, and their response was unironically "well, we haven't kicked them out of the league yet"
>>116758366They have Steve Gibson, Boro chairman who is suing Derby, as well as a Forest exec on the EFL board. They were always on the hunt for a dead ram
Any signings, lads?
>Antonio Conte on Tottenham project: “I’m enjoying my time here - fantastic atmosphere, a great stadium, a great training ground, our fans are incredible”.>“For sure I want to improve the situation. The people deserve much more than this”, he told @jonathandveal83.
>>116758533The best bit is Conte says all of this with the flattest voice and deadest eyes.
>>116758518Javi Martinez to Arsenal
>>116758518Gareth Barry to move from Villa to Liverpool anyday now
>>116756440Yeah imagine working in a job you hate haha that would be mad lol who would do that lmao
What's this about Derby not being allowed to use their academy players?
>>116758758Derby MUST fail
>>116758758*they* know they have stop rppney at any cost
How much is Derby going for? Rppney could buy them
>>116758758Basically in the past few days Derby were looking like they might stay up. Takeover imminent with 2 bidders, prospects like Diallo from Utd meant to be joining, money coming in to resign Jagielka. And then EFL basically prevented ALL of that happening so now Jagielka has left the club, no takeover until after the transfer window and anything else the EFL decide they want to do. Never seen anything like this before desu
Strange not Arsenal or Spurs has taken a chance on Aouar. Hasn't had the greatest season but has a relatively low price tag to take a chance on him.
>>116759121Aouar is yesterday's news he's stale already
Why is the EFL so afraid of him?
>>116759268he has a scary face
>>116759268You can't trust him around your grandmother
>>116759268he's too powerful
imagine if WBA got him
>>116759268keep in mind dude's still 36 yo, there are players older than him that are still playing top level football, while he's already honing his early management skill of trying to make a club that's fated for relegation to actually survive the league. can you imagine where it'll take him when he'll make a better manager in 10, no, 5 years in the future?can he actually become the new united manager by then???
>>116758758Under the restrictions placed on the club by the EFL in the last transfer window, certain academy players are only registered to play in U23 games and can't play in the first team for Derby. Previously, the EFL also disallowed the club from promoting ANY new youth player to the first team, as it would have taken them over the 23 player cap. This is even though those players are all being paid to be at the club anyway, so it's not going to cost them any more to do it.
>>116756729that's his secret, anon. he's always injured
>>116759428his managerial career is much more impressive than that of someone like Lampard or Gerrard who are either checkbook come placers and/or quit when it gets tough. Looking forward to Lamps doing worse for Villa than Smith eventually did.
>>116759554>Lamps doing worse for Villa than Smith
>Phil Jagielka going to @stokecity, who have moved quickly after Derby release.t. Simon Stonepoor derbyanon
>>116759568Lamps is replacing Gerrard when Gerrard is announced as the shock new Man Utd manager at the end of the season
Lampard was rattled surprisingly early into his management career. One of the more composed players turned into a screeching lunatic real fast
>>116759582>Gerrard as man utd managerThat would be a shock
>>116759603Scousers would burn his house down
>>116759582>Lamps is replacing Gerrard when Gerrard is announced as the shock new Man Utd manager at the end of the seasonI'm always hyped for a managerial appointment when I genuinely don't know which fanbase would riot harder.
>>116759592>rattled surprisingly early into his management careerThink Shearer holds that record for me. It was only a couple of games in when he started ranting about players taking the piss out of the club, and then he was finished forever after 8 matches.
>>116759577This the Stoke that were allowed to wipe off £30m of player values as Covid expenses? Obviously FFP rules are working WONDERFULLY in the EFL
So Brentford have managed to tie down Pontus Jansson for an extra year. Rumours did circulate early on that the team intended to sell him to Newcastle or another Championship side and so this extension is merely a means to profit in the summer window. He's been woeful recently and is likely on the way out.
>>116759603>>116759582>Gerrard named United manager>United finish top of the league, Liverpool finish outside the top 4>>116759610
>>116759619Shearer had a point though because of the wages the players were on and how shit they played, despite being good players (for the most part).I don't know which way you mean he was finished after 8 matches. If you mean he didn't want to continue, that isn't true. Ashley said he would speak to him about a real contract after they were relegated which he never did and is one of the reasons Shearer doesn't like Ashley. If you mean no one else wanted him, that isn't true neither because West Brom offered him a managerial job and he declined it.
>>116759711Finished in that he hasn't managed since. I don't know what went on behind the scenes.
>>116759764I'm just going by what he said in an interview (I think it was just after the club had been sold when he mentioned it).I know when he was still playing he did want to become a manager, but I'm not sure if his experience in those 8 games that convinced him not to bother or if it was because he would only be interested in managing Newcastle.Whatever it was, he's been asked about management since and he said he wouldn't do it now, probably because he has that comfy pundit position that pays top bucks.
>>116759802yeah what you said sounds pretty close to what i've seen as well. he mentioned it briefly on the overlap thing with gnev where ashley never followed up on it with him.>Whatever it was, he's been asked about management since and he said he wouldn't do it now, probably because he has that comfy pundit position that pays top bucks.i think if you leave the game for a while and you become a family man with a well paying punditry gig, it must be very unappealing go back to into the meat grinder of pro football like your time disappears and your life becomes consumed by the job. i watched the bobby robson documentary semi recently and it came across like there was regret he wasn't around for kids while he was managing across europe
>>116759628Reminder all championship clubs got a £9m covid cash fall apart from one, cuz 'rules'.Can you guess which club that might be?
>>116759345This. The Championship is doing everything it can to contain his power, but it is literally impossible. Ultimately, Rooney WILL prevail.
>>116759924Yeah I could definitely imagine that. I think a lot of people don't consider that aspect of it. When you're young and playing and you get an offer, especially one abroad, it's an easy convince to your wife and even to your young kids. Once you're older, and your kids are older, it's a lot harder to convince them to drop everything and follow you to a country where they have to start all over again.Didn't Rafa's wife and family stay in Liverpool after he'd left because they didn't want to be traveling all over with him? Since then he's been in Italy, Spain, London, Newcastle, and China. I think that's part of why he took the Everton job, so he could be back with his family. They weren't interested in hopping around all of those places because, unlike him, they had no real reason to.
FUCK THE EFL. FUCK MEL MORRIS. FUCK STEVE GIBSON. FUCK JANNIESUP THE RAMS
>>116760058one of the more depressing things from recent memory is jose living in a hotel while at man united for years because live alone in a big house and he didn't want to put down roots there because he travelling to london to see his family anywayand i vaguely remember something about poch's family being in london still and he travels to london to see themjust seems like a rather dim existence>>116760000the digits confirm. i've love if they stay up>>116760064up the rams brother
>>116754579Would take him over memewood in a heartbeat desu, in fact i would try sign most of the west ham team over this current united team desu
>>116759037What do Wolves' fans think of Trincao? From a couple of matches I've watched it always seemed like he was the most frustrating person to watch if you were a fan of them. A lot of shitty shots and complete lack of awareness. That was earlier on in the season so maybe he's changed now?
Friday Productivity to Zero FC transfer is nearly a done deal according to BTSport_Anon
>>116755245what a bunch of scumbags. If wayne gets anything above dead last with them it should be deemed a miracle
>>116760228>one of the more depressing things from recent memory is jose living in a hotel while at man united for years because live alone in a big house and he didn't want to put down roots there because he travelling to london to see his family anywayI knew there was someone that was a good example from recent times and that's who it was.It would be so shit when you're older like that and your family lives hundreds of miles away. At least when you're a playing you can go out with the lads. When you're a manager, or even just older, you have no one to really do that with. You're just on your own.
>>116760058can confirm Rafa's family still live in Wirral.
>>116759216>scouser saying other people are hard to likekek
>>116759603Wouldnt be the first time a liverpool legend brought man united to the top again
>>116760326I thought they did. I remember reading something about his daughters still being at school or something there so his wife didn't want them to up sticks and go to Italy.
>>116760435they live by my mate, he's seen them a few times.Nuno is another example of managers leaving their family, when he was sacked from Wolves he hadn't seen them in over a year because they live in Portugal. Wolves fully believed he'd go back and see them but he went to Tottenham instead. By the time he eventually went home he hadn't seen his kids in 18 months. Seems a bit of a sad existence despite the money
>>116760505>he's seen them a few timesI wonder if Rafa's daughters are hot.>he hadn't seen his kids in 18 monthsIt's bad enough I think them being in a different part of the country, but in a different country entirely, for that amount of time, I don't think I could do it. Like you say, even with the money.It's a bit like that tale of the only lonely billionaire. He has all of this money, but what can he really do with it when he's alone? Experiences aren't the same unless you're sharing them with someone (depending on the experience obviously). Missing your kids growing up is one of those things that will be a massive regret because, no matter how much money you have, you can't get it back.

To be fair if I were sad act 190, I'd probably consider replying to myself as a measure of popularity as well. He's been here 9 years (never stepped foot outside in that time) and has made a grand total of zero friends from 4chan lmfao
>All the pearl clutching by Arsepakis over Liverpool postponement>They try to pull the same shit because Xhaka of all people got sent offKEK
>>116762625lmao they're sad and a laughing stock of this thread
>>116762625Well, no, the issue is that the majority of the 'covid tests' that Klopp said was reason for postponement turned out to be 'false positives' so there is no reason for all his players to isolate and thus were allowed to face Arsenal last night. So that's pretty much the issue.>ArsepakisI know you don't want to be associated with 190kg, but Arsenal fans usually are black. United are the pakis.Oh wait 190kg replied to you so you're probably him, nvm.
20 Year Old American Cole Bassett is transferring for Feyenoord.One of the best midfielders in MLS. Debuted for USA last month and scored in his debut vs Bosnia.
We saw why Liverpool lied about the Covid tests last night anyway. Embarrassing.
Thankfully you're still here 190cm so nobody can ever be a worse laughing stock than you. You kid diddling nonce.

>>116762852retards don't seem to understand the issue is that a load of the covid tests that meant liverpool postponed turned out to be incorrect (whether this is cope after klopp went on his vaccine rant or not, i dunno). regardless, why did arsenal send all these people out on loan if they need them lmao

Derby admins with an updatehttps://www.dcfc.co.uk/news/2022/01/a-statement-from-the-joint-administrators-of-derby-county-football-clubKey bit is probably this:>The difficulty and currently, in our view, the last remaining significant obstacle is to deal with certain claims that are very much disputed but which we are being advised by the EFL cannot be currently compromised notwithstanding statute says otherwise. Whilst we accept this is frustrating for all, none of the interested parties are able to progress matters further until such time that an agreement can be reached.So in plain English, this relates to (thus far unheard) claims of £51m against Derby by Boro and Wycombe. The EFL won't let Derby exit admin without solving this issue, and they also seemingly won't let Derby compromise with the parties to resolve the disputes. This is in spite of the rules seemingly suggesting otherwise. So the options are pay the clubs £51m (never going to happen voluntarily, and would likely put off any buyer in any case, resulting in inevitable liquidation), fight the case (not realistically possible due to the fees involved and the length of time this would inevitably take, likely resulting in the loss of assets and eventual liquidation) or just liquidate. That is unless the EFL realise they're being entirely unreasonable and decide to change their position (like that's ever going to fucking happen).

>>116763363Jesus fuck, Derby are actually going to die. All because Wycombe were too shit to stay up and Steve Gibson hates Mel Morris.
>>116763363The EFL just want Derby to get relegated, don't they? Fair play to them for resisting it as best as possible.
>>116763461>The EFL just want Derby to get relegated, don't they?No, they want more than that
>>116763363Is it really a surprise that the organisation that thought it understood stadium valuation better than stadium valuers and thought it understood accountancy rules better than accountants (and their chartered body) now thinks they understand administration rules better than administrators?

>>116763363>in plain English, this relates to (thus far unheard) claims of £51m against Derby by Boro and Wycombe. The EFL won't let Derby exit admin without solving this issue,This is completely fucked. Why on earth do Boro think they deserve 40m from a fucking club in administration because they missed out on a play-off spot. Lots of clubs have been promoted to the Premier league in the season they broke FFP (QPR, Leicester, Bournemouth) do the clubs who missed out have a case too? Completely disgusting Derby aren't allowed owners in time for the transfer window. EFL doing everything they can to relegate Derby to make an example of them, are they not accountable to any independent regulators? The whole thing stinks

>>116763363Derby cant sue the EFL can't they?
is this what happens when you have no skills? you shitzo post on this thread? Man I'd fucking hate myself if my kid turned out like this, seriously, I'd prefer they die so I wouldn't have to deal with them.
>>116765335No because they don't have any money and no owner, most likely getting liquidated around the end of the season if the EFL let this all play out. Somehow Boro and the EFL agree that Derby should pay compensation but Derby lost TWO play-off finals against teams who literally broke FFP that fucking season (QPR, Villa) Are they not also due compensation using the same logic? I'm surprised fans of other clubs haven't been more vocal about how fucked the whole situation is, but I guess nobody gives a shit as long as it isn't their club.
>>116765335>>116765577This, and also the EFL's rules mean that clubs can't take legal action against the league, anyway

Just realised that Wigan have 45pts in League One and have three games in hand over 1st (on 50pts) and five games in hand over 2nd (also on 50pts). They could easily leapfrog both. I forgotten how far they had fallen. As for Oxford gimp, they're not looking good mate, sorry.
>>116770692Bolton, Wigan, Portsmouth and Sunderland are now in the same league as Accrington Stanley and Crewe. It's like seeing your dad flirting with a slaggy barmaid in the shit pub in town, these two entities should not meet.

>>116771314Cheshire is good for flash cunts, it's got all the things a footballer wants and that's where all the Manchester based (and a number of the Liverpool based) players live.

>>116772760They've done what they needed. Won the CL and Title. Klopp is already their most successful manager for a long time. If he can win the FA Cup and League Cup he'll have cleansweeped all major trophies (Europa League also counts I guess but lol)
>>116772806why would city want blahovic?
>>116772835Yeah but there team was good enough to do better. for one of the top top teams ever they havent achieved what they couldhave and i genuinely now believe they are over the peak and its only gonna regress.
>>116772887They need a striker and he is good in the air, something City don't have up front? Especially with their quality wingers he could rack up a lot of goals. He isn't exactly slow either. In reality we know they're going for Haaland in the summer, but it was more of a general comment they could afford it.
>>116772921Nah. Too good for that. If they win the League Cup (likely) and FA Cup this season Klopp will be a legend and Liverpool will be happy with that for a fair bit. If they sneak the CL too then all the better. Title race isn't over yet either.
>>116772928God if City get Haaland then say hello to the Englischliga for the foreseeable future
>>116772976Imagine they got Haaland and Mbappe and Messi joined just for City vs United (Ronaldo) memes. Haaland + Mbappe + Messi up front would be lel. Just make Messi like Dasilva as a No.10.
>>116772348The big teams have already done the deals that needed doing and are keeping them under wraps for last day of the transfer window for the drama. Happens every season.
So apparently Arthur Melo is flying in to sign for Arsenal, but I don't think he'll be ready for the match on Sunday. Is he any good? Also been reading that Arsenal might play Ben White in midfield. That doesn't seem like a bad idea t b h. Play Gabriel(?) and Holding in CB, Tierney LB and the Jap in RB. White plays a Pirlo or De Rossi role, doing long balls to wingers and being a defensive screen (something David Luiz should have been doing instead of giving away penalties). Honestly think Ben White would be a better DM than CB. They should get that kid they loaned to France back as CB since he absolutely schooled Mbappe in that game. Then play Ben White as DM. There, solved a long problem with the club.Also this hype over this Patino(?) lad, he looks awful, dunno the hype. Ferdinand was heaping praise on him (maybe a mental trick to fuck him up? I dunno) and I saw him on the Forest FA Cup game... he did nothing. He was awful.
>>116773305what do you think this is? scum blog forum?
>>116772976>Le Poopensharten man>Ever joining a league where he'd get exposed
>Former Burnley owner Mike Garlick could regain control of the club if Sean Dyche's side fail to avoid relegation to the Sky Bet Championship because of a clause in the deal which saw him sell up 13 months ago.Is he going to outJew the Jew?
>>116773643Kinda hope he does join EPL though preferably not City. I really like Haaland and EPL is where he needs to go to challenge himself most and show he is the best.
>>116773416shut the fuck up 190kg you fat nonce. nobody cares about a welsh paedos opinions.
>>116773785>>116773643True measure of his power is joining a club like West Ham, Arsenal, Spurs, Lestah (or atm United) and dragging them to a title. Instead he'd probably join City or Liverpool and you'd never know how good he is because of the absolute insane quality behind him. It is like Sterling at City, gets a laod of goals but you then count his attempts and shit and realise he should be doubling what he is actually getting.
>>116773738WaitLike money refunded or he just repossess a club? What in tarnation kinda clause is that
>>116773305>Is he any good?Arthur has technique but lacks vision and quick thinking from what I've heard. Also has a shitty attitude. I don't expect him to be a starter but Arsenal need midfield cover badly and he's better than anyone else they have bar Xhaka and Partey who are the starters.>White in midfieldI think Arteta should try it. You're right they should've done it with David Luiz too. You never know it ho it will turn out in practice but David Luiz briefly played very well for Chelsea in that role. I don't see it as a long term solution though.>They should get that kid they loaned to France back as CBThe Saliba thing is a mystery to all of us.>Also this hype over this Patino(?) ladHe was good against Blunderland. In all fairness to him, the Forest game was played with no midfield. Lokonga showed no bravery or leadership alongside him so I'm not surprised he ended up hiding for most of the game. Haven't seen enough to say he's elite but has a vision for the game, he just needs confidence and a determination to be brave and improve. It's a big question mark at the moment.
>>116774359>but lacks vision and quick thinkingI heard about his quick thinking... but as for vision I heard the opposite from Pirlo I believe. Said he has great vision, the issue is he makes the wrong choices. Instead of spraying it outwide he'll try and do a direct throughball. He is also, apparently, very lax in his defensive duties and pushes forward a lot. Arsenal need a creative midfielder (and good strikers but one problem at a time lmao - t. Wenger).>White & LuizMy thinking was Luiz was decent in defence, good in air and could pass well... he just made shitty decisions (and got refballed due to his rep) so if you put him as a DM he is less likely to get a red or give away a penalty. He can use his passing ability to start counters and he is good in the air and screens the defence. White isn't great in the air, but he could do the DM role well imo. According to Transfermarkt he did play DM for Brighton apparently.>SalibaThat's him. He's apparently doing great in Uber Eats and I mentioned that PSG game where schooled Mbappehttps://twitter.com/Afcsammmm/status/1452410437392162821https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsIQY3_0qeUSo yeah, put him in as CB and play White as DM. I don't think White is CB material, not tall enough for me, not a PROPA MAAANTIN. Nor is he fast enough to make up for mistakes.>Patino BlunderlandYeah he scored but he barely played there. Good goal and grats on his debut but I watched the FA Cup match (as it was on ITV, wooo! no need for streams!) and I saw absolutely nothing to justify the hype. I just saw Ferdinand going ape shit over how amazing he was and I was like 'naaah'.If Arsenal do play on Sunday, if he plays, maybe he can surprise performance in a derby. Unlikely though and I expect Spurs to thrash Arsenal. Arsenal are devoid of talent, nobody coming through the ranks.I don't want Spurs to win but I see no way Arsenal can. I also want Arsenal to win the League Cup because of Klopp's 'false positive' covid bullshit.
>>116774256It won't be like a repossession. It'll either be a refund or a price laid out in the contract. I can't imagine it will be a straight refund though because the club value will immediately plummet if they're relegated.
>>116774891>ArthurYeah that sounds about right. I was thinking vision more in terms of making the right decision. I don't know. It's January so I'm not picky, he'd be good cover. But I hope it's not a permanent deal. Arsenal need more complete midfielders, especially ones who can defend, but then I still don't know for sure what Arteta wants in the long run.>White as DMI'd like to see it. He does have good games in him at CB and has been getting better. But he hasn't looked £50m worth. He got MotM against Liverpool but even there he was at fault for the red card since he was playing Jota onside. I think Arteta is fine keeping him at CB since Tomiyasu is almost a CB himself. The formation doesn't matter so much as what the players do in transition.>SalibaBut yeah I wonder where he will fit in. I guess he'll come back and Holding will go, or maybe he'll be the third/fourth choice. The whole thing's been very odd and he is a Raul signing so perhaps Arteta wants to wash his hands of him. Good player though, would be a waste to get rid of him.>PatinoAgainst Sunderland he had good awareness of where to be and where the ball was going to be. 10 minutes was enough to tell that at least. Against Forest he went missing. Sample size is small to say the least. Would have been nice had he played well against Forest but nobody outside of the usual starters did and I don't blame him since it was his first start. I think he'll do better alongside a senior midfielder but he was played with Lokonga who shit the bed. He may never reach his potential but he clearly has that potential at least.>SpursArsenal will lose if they play. They're abysmal without Xhaka and Partey as seen against Forest. They were able to scrap a draw against Liverpool by parking the bus but they won't do that against Spurs. I'm hoping for a postponement. Afcon is usually somewhat manageable but has really fucked things this year on top of covid.
>>116775239>ArthurArthur will prob be another Kallstrom, sadly. Can see it now.>WhiteI dunno, I think it could solve that position they've needed solving for so long. He isn't what I think they need... I always thought they should have signed William Carvahlo. They need a big strong leg breaker DM who can tackle anybody and get it forward quickly. If they're fast, even better.>SalibaI suspect Holding or Chambers might go (I think Chambers will go, despite me thinking he is decent backline cover and can play further up iirc). Saliba can be cover in general for Gabriel and White. He was £30m. I am 100% convinced there was dodgy shit going on with the guys in the transfer room, which is why Arteta fired two of them when he became manager. Pepe was another dodgy deal. I dunno why Pepe looked amazing at the end of last season and has been poo ever since (he was great in the Blunderland game iirc but that is L1 ops).>PatinoJust a bit unacceptable to lose to Forest t b h. Even as a youngster he should have been more involved - it wasn't like he was playing Madrid or PSG and was overawed by their talent. >SpursYeah they will lose. A shame. As for hoping for postponement - why? Do you support Arsenal or just dislike Spurs?
>>116773305Arthur is a mediocre player with terrible attitude towards his career just like almost all hue players. Maybe one day the big leagues will learn not to trust hue players in general, but most of all the defensive ones.>t. someone who watched a lot of his matches back in Brazil
>>116775563Feels like Edu is great at picking the BR players with desire and motivation. Gabriel and Martinelli. Mari is shit but he gives it his all.
>>116772348i think clubs only do january transfer if there's some unfortunate stuff happening in the squad like injury-ridden squad so they need to sign some short-term replacement, players falling out of favor and openly rebelling to the manager so they have no choice but to kick them out. also the fact that clubs who hold said players tend to bloat their price for midseason transfer because they want to keep their best player so they can finish as high as possible on the table.

>>116775563>>116775631Well, which is it? Either Edu is great at picking out determined lads who want to win, or he isn't. Because if Arthur isn't then what's the point (I know the point is they have no midfielders atm, but I am pretty sure the loan deal will have an obligation to buy at the end or perhaps 'buy if he plays 20 games' or something).They also need good strikers, but there aren't any. If Vhalovic or w/e his name is costs £60m then why aren't Arsenal going for it lol. They need a good striker NOW. They've needed one since Auba scored in the FA Cup final. He's been awful since covid and malaria. Though that is apparently true for a lot of players (covid). So they need a good striker now. Two if possible t b h.They should look into Jeremy Doku and Ernest Poku t b h. Would be a funny as fuck strike partnership>Doku to Poku....Maybe Victor Osimhen, Lorenzo Lucca... Darwin Nunez... Fer Nino....
>>116775881Arthur is a patch-up loan to cover the current afcon and covid issues.
>Arsenal need a defender>Wilshere is right there with no club
>>116776130Fuck I meant a midfielder
>>116776130>>116776146You're right but I think Arteta wants young players. Under 25. I am surprised they haven't signed him on a 'pay per play' contract. He gets X amount if he actually plays, which gives him incentive to train well. In reality he should be playing in League One t b h. However I think they will sign Wilshere if the postponement doesn't happen. That should give them time to register him for the match.Or they could give him a 6 month contract on really low wages (and 'pay' him via actually playing so he can't laze about if he wants money). I heard Ramsey is also on the move, surprised Arsenal aren't looking into him too (guess Juventus don't wanna lose both Arthur and Ramsey without replaements... I heard some PL club players were going over there. Maybe Ndombele?)
>>116775359>another KallstromI'm not sure anyone will ever top Kallstrom as a meme signing, kek. But yeah I see what you mean. At least he isn't injured. He'll serve his purpose if he can be half-decent cover until an actual good midfielder is signed.>I think it could solve that position they've needed solving for so longHe wouldn't be another Vieira. As you say William Carvalho would've been good but recruitment was dire until the last window. Torreira was hoped to be that player but is too limited and small. Lyon's midfield looks good right now, they should just buy them.>Holding or ChambersChambers is legit good cover so it'll be a shame to see him go, but he's barely had any chances so I don't blame him. Holding too in a way but he's a pure CB.>I am 100% convinced there was dodgy shit going on with the guys in the transfer roomYeah Raul leaving when they deeped the Pepe transfer was the sign>I dunno why Pepe looked amazing at the end of last season and has been poo ever sinceHe's too limited and one-footed. He's great when he doesn't stay wide and can cut inside and curl a shot in. But too often defenders know what to do and then he gets isolated because unlike the left side of Arsenal's attack, the full back doesn't push up to help him. Pepe ends up isolated. He was right footed and played on the left, he'd be having a much better time and would've replaced Aubameyang.>Just a bit unacceptable to lose to Forest t b hOh I agree, and it doesn't bode well that he hid. He's been rushed into the first team suddenly though so I'm not surprised. Hopefully it gets sorted or he'll fade into another almost-was prospect.>As for hoping for postponement - why? Do you support Arsenal or just dislike Spurs?I support Arsenal. I concede on its own there's not much of a case, but by now a precedent has been set by the PL so I reckon they ought to cut us some slack. And it's a hugely important game too.
>>116775563What about Bruno Guimaraes?>>116775631Martinelli has been a great find. Gabriel is very good too. But Edu isn't that good, he also signed Willian who was shit and Mari, while an inoffensive player, was a pretty blatantly corrupt signing for an agent mate of his.>>116775881They are going for Vlahovic. And they should. A good striker can make all the difference. And unlike other clubs Fiorentina would prefer actually sell now - but the player is understandably more reluctant. January moves are a headache for all involved.

>>116776209>am surprised they haven't signed him on a 'pay per play' contractThat's the kind of deal I would expect him to have too given his injury record. I think he would do a good job in the NLD still, just because derbies are different to other types of matches.I'm surprised he's still without a club, even given his injury record. Carroll doesn't have the best of injury records or stats and he still found one. I know his injuries aren't as bad but still.>I heard Ramsey is also on the move, surprised Arsenal aren't looking into him too I mentioned that too the other day and an anon said Arsenal weren't interested because he's nothing like what he was and because he's too old now. I still think he could do a job.>>116776509Hattrick hero tomorrow bonnie lad.

>vpn weirdo accuses others of samefagging
>>116777766Didn't read your schizo blog rants
>>116778309Here's my ideaOn midfield: Pogba, vdb, matic, mata out. 2 new DM/CMs in. That'll make their midfield depth actually good while mcfred staying.Bruno doesn't really need backup in AM, there's sanshit who can play there. Although i think tielemans can be brought in because man can cover in both CM/AMOn goalkeeping: bin deano and use the money for different position or buy some young GK as DDG's successor. Go another season with DDG, Heaton, Grant.On centre back: both bailly and axel out. Promote either dishon bernard who have been decent at hull or teden mengi as 4th choice CB. So the depth there will be maguire, varane, lindelof, dishon/mengi, (and jonesy)Rashy stays, man's an absolute disgrace atm but no way they'll give up on him easilyCavani and martial dont need replacement, there's mason who's an actual striker to rotate with ronaldo

What is Wolverhampton doing differently?
>>116796395only scoring when it matters
>>116796354ThisDeclan Rice is the most valuable player in the world. 200m easy. One of the best number 6's in the world, never injured, rarely fouls, makes great slide tackles, moves the ball forward, can run past people. Is intelligent enough to play multiple positions, this year he's just been casually running the ball 30 yards up the field for west ham when he needs to.To me he looks like he could be an 8 or a 7, he's looked like he wants to this year and he can really smash a shot or spray a long pass. He came up as a CB and can do that. If West Ham can find a way to keep Bowen and Rice this summer they will legitimately be a big club this summer. I don't think Rice would want to move down the table to a United drowning in media negativity.
