The problem is the teams around us

Manchester City and Pep have proven that they have the consistency over a 38 game season

Manchester United are signing two world class players in positions of need getting a lot stronger.

Liverpool defence being back could add a extra 10 points for them.

Chelsea we have a young squad that can improve but really lack goals and all we have done change the situation is Lose Giroud, further more we have no depth for Kante who keeps picking up injuries which is a real worry.

Leicester City brought two great signings that improve their squad depth and also got a good young striker to lessen the load on Vardy.

Arsenal before people laugh they have a decent young core and no European football so they could have a outside chance this season.

I think some people are forgetting that we made the top four on the last day of the season thanks to Tottenham.

1.5m for Bate

That's not much at the moment, but depending on the size of the sell-on percentage the biggest chunk might still come later if he develops as expected. 

Already close to £60M in transfer fees received this summer, not bad. Still a lot of players to be sold though.

All outgoing transfers are off the wage bill too. Youngsters like Bate probably didn't earn all that much and most of the loanees likely had their wages paid by the loan club so there might not be that much savings on some of the outgoing players but a first team player like Giroud leaving will definitely affect the wage bill in a positive way.

Would just like to say that there's no guarantee that Sancho would be an immediate success for United, despite his excellence in the Bundesliga. Am sure we were sitting here last year going gaga over Werner and Havertz when we got them, only to see them struggle for various reasons across the season.

If people want to go down the if route by saying things like "Liverpool defence being back could add a extra 10 points for them", then why can't they do the same regarding our attackers?

Yes, we struggled for goals last season but that was largely down to our attackers facing different problems. Some had injuries, some had confidence issues, some struggled for consistency. But what's to say with the last season over, a good summer break and another year of experience under belt, they won't do better? 

Not sure the specific loss of Giroud makes much of a difference considering Tuchel barely used him in the end or after the Atletico Madrid game in February. And would like to think that we will sign a midfielder.

Every team will need some luck along the way to achieve something. Liverpool, for example, got it aplenty during the run-in despite their winning run.

For all the talk of the lack of goals, part of the reason why we finished in the Top 4 by a narrow margin was because we flopped almost all the six-pointers against teams around us under Lampard. Things improved dramatically when we got a manager who actually instilled a tactical plan and cohesion.

Isn't it only close to 50 million?

EDIT: Never mind. Forgot 1-2 others.

Again, nothing new then. Same thing as The Athletic reported.

According to Marca, Eden Hazard is set to hold talks with new manager Carlo Ancelotti as he eyes a return to Chelsea.

Zinedine Zidane’s replacement is adamant he will get the best out of the forward, but it is claimed Hazard is already on the market to be sold.

The Belgian is keen on a return to Chelsea, where he spent seven years and was regularly denoted as one of the best players in the Premier League.

A tad convenient to just link him with us.

And/But, no thanks...

Reports this morning that Tammy is on his way to Arsenal for a loan with £40m buy clause - Dailymail, so take from that what you will...

Without a world class striker coming in, seeing Tammy in that disgusting red shirt would be hard to watch. I’m sure our club understand that well. Sending him to Arse and bringing in some random dude like the striker from Stuttgart would cause huge uproar.

I believe they quoted from The Sun, which was the original source of the rumor.

Yes, largely due to a meltdown from a manager who's long gone. Factor in TT's time we're second.

As for Arsenal this no Europe thing is massively exaggerated, it "worked" for us because we already had a title winning squad who had a fluke bad season due to a variety of unprecedented vectors, Arsenal don't have that luxury.

Free midweeks training Rob Holding, Ben White and Hector Bellerin is no different to free midweeks training James Tarkowski, Ben Mee and Matt Lowton and that's before we mention Arteta tax.

Slightly disappointing to see a number of youngsters move on, but they are choosing the easier option, so be it.

Sancho and to an extent Pogba have set a precedent unfortunately.

Aslong as it was a game time thing instead of a club issue we should be able to get them back if they become the business all be it at a cost.

The reports say Bate isn’t even going directly into Leeds’ first team but rather their youth team. Slightly strange that he wouldn’t just wait it out here and see what happened next summer. But I guess Bielsa has given him a more clear vision of his path the the first team than we could.
