This is true and totally depressing. Manchester fucking City have eclipsed us as a club. We simply cannot compete with either them or United for the upper echelon, super expensive players. That in itself wouldn't be a huge deal as long as we were at least bringing in players from that next level down, but we're doing fuck all!

City finished in the top 4 and already had a very good squad and have now signed 7 players for ~£150m. United finished far above us and have spent around the same.

Silence at Chelsea...

With the players we bought minus the money from players sold these past 2 years we have spoent £37 mill. This doesn't include money made from players loans or the money from sponsers ot TV etc. So going back to when I remember our own supporters whining that we were trying to buy the league and all we were doing was investing in players we desperatly needed if we was going to fight in the PL let alone Europe.

The Rags,Citeh,Scouser and North Londoners all finished above us yet all spending more on players they need to strengthen their already strong sides (whether you say tongue in cheek that they aren't stronger)

If you complain when the club puts its hand in their pockets and spend £50/£60 mil oin a player like Lukaku/Stones etc that are arguably better than our existing players just because they aren't your particular choice then there is something wrong with our supporters.

Right now this season could be the making or breaking of us and for just 3 or 4 players of a particular standard, we could be competing at the highest levels once again.

Dont moan if you think we are overspending. Moan if we don't and just buy wannabes or hasbeens at the last minute.

A lot of money, but he'll improve their squad. City have a top class team, they could do worse than buying a huge English talent!

Think not, if they would have gotten their original target in Laporte I would have said yes.

Pique and Boateng were at a similar stage of development under Guardiola and both progressed immensely. The same could happen with Stones.

This does not have to be a problem if Chelsea bring Christensen back (a mistake not bring him back this summer imo).

Guardiola starting to shape the team in his vision. Fullbacks don't look like his type though. And centre midfield is still a bit underwhelming, his most crucial line.

I can't wait till we go full press against Guardiola's City and ruin them. 

In what universe? :D

We're light years behind Bayer Leverkusen, Atletico Madrid, and even Tottenham/Liverpool :cry:

But yes, over the next couple of transfer windows, if we fill our squad with more dynamic/athletic players, maybe we'll catch up to modern football soon enough.

So they have a disappointment, a gimp, a disappointment and and overrated Englishman for CBs?

The converse side of the coin is that if we get that Koulibaly geezer we will have the best bunch of CBs in the league when Zouma's fit - JT, Zouma, KK, and Cahill (who is still not bad for a backup).

LMAO

How did they dodge a bullet? They got a top notch young cb.

Have you watched him play in the last twelve months?

Also, you're off your rocker if you think he's value for money. HG crap once again.

I was talking about the fact we're behind them in term of having a system that can adequately press/ and counter press teams effectively. 

Not entirely on a footballing scale. 

Edit: I know we're not in a good place right now, but not that bad.
