    City are a financial doped club that get a lot of pats on the back from the media. Let's not forget the bizarre Pep or money bollocks City have been peddled for all of 2018. It's rich complaining about how Liverpool are treated when City get treated very nicely be the press when they want to push their agenda.

  4. Chelsea closing in on Golovin.

    That gives them a midfield of Jorginho Kante Golovin.

    Pretty damn good.

    sad for him, he was really starting to progress again as a player after stagnating at Arsenal the last season or two. Hope this isn't one of those injuries that ruins an entire career.

    Ox was always going to end up missing most of the season, the best case estimates seemed like the start of the new year, but even then it would've taken a long time to get up to match fitness. Probably going to push on for another attacker, don't really believe the Fekir stuff is dead.

    Really disappointing news about Ox but it was always pretty likely. The club will have known for a while.

    I think Fekir is more likely to happen than not. If it does then the club is only a VVD centre back partner away from about as good a summer as any fan could have hoped for. Amazing the difference in the way things are being run in comparison to pre-Klopp.

    Honestly, the entire top six looks unbelievably strong really. It's mad.

    I just want us to sign a right winger :tear:

    Chelsea are signing another defender, Daniele Rugani of Juventus - do the board not realise we are losing two of our best players and they will need to be replaced with world-class, and thus insanely expensive, talent? We have 6 maybe 7 cb's already and Eden Hazard is almost irreplaceable, but yeah lets spend millions on another one who isn't even an upgrade on at least 4 of the defenders we already have.

    We hit the post 4x v Bury. RS had the ball cleared off the line 3x v Bury. Who is the best rn.

    Ox will never be the same again. At least he's got that bird from Little Mix.

    Didn't Sarri say yesterday that he wasn't really that bothered with signings and wished to develop the talent they currently had? Makes me think that, as usual, this isn't a managerial decision and just the boards attempt to gain revenue.

    I'd like to be my old self again Moderator

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Chelsea and Madrid figured out a swap+cash deal involving Hazard/Courtois and Bale/Navas

    I think the same. Kurt Zouma hasn't even traveled with the squad on pre-season so that's one talent that's likely to leave rather than be developed. It all remains to be seen though, squad may well have a major overhaul the way these transfer rumours are coming out - Higuain, Rugani, Kasper Schmeichel, Golovin, Cech even. Plenty leaving too.

    Would take Bale but there are other keepers they should prioritise over Navas imho.

    Johansen has probably been an excellent bit of business for you overall though, don't you think? Got him for quite cheap and when he's on form, he is brilliant. His pressing is outstanding. Still think what he could've been in this Rodgers team for us.

    I'm still so surprised you haven't went for Lozano.

    In Celtic news, we progressed through the first of our four qualifying rounds for Champions League last night. 3-0 win, (6-0 aggregate) against Alashkert.

    We now play Rosenborg who were lucky, or unfairly treated, depending on how you see it. Valur got a penalty at 2-0 which they scored which is a horrendous decision by the ref. Rosenborg then got a penalty in 95th minute to go through 3-1. Madness.

    We played them last year in the 3rd round qualifier and won 1-0 away to progress but hoping we really hurt them this time. Dembele and Edouard together is awesome.

    I'll get some of you caring about us somehow!

    Does Lord Bendtner still play for Rosenborg?

    I used to have an odd soft spot for them.

    He does. He caused us some issues last year but that's because of his experience. We have a little bit of a Centre Back crisis at the moment for this tie because Jozo got sent off last night (stupidly high studs up tackle but still could've went either way) and Boyata was in Belgium squad so isnt back from holiday after his WC duty.

    Lord scored two yesterday. Both penalties.

    I was trying to describe myself to someone

    There's something off looking about that home kit. Like it makes the players look like they have really short torsos or something.

    Apart from the sponsers logo I don't mind the new utd home shirt . The kit that I think looks the nicest this season though is the new Watford one with the Black and Yellow stripes.

    This shows all the new kits for those interested:
