There was a time when the Spuds fans could at least enjoy the nice football they played. 

We're more likely to see Halley's Comet again before these aerial losers win anything again.

I was bored...

Staying with City till the end of the season is not surprising (frankly, you have to be pretty naive or in deep denial not to see that he wanted to from the start). What is surprising, is that he neve

I think if Mbappe ever moves it’ll only be to Real Madrid and he’d probably cost much more than Kane. For most clubs Haaland would make much more long term sense due to his age, but the combo of Kane being English, being totally settled and dominant in the PL already, and the fact that there likely won’t be a bidding war for him (unlike Haaland) means he’d probably be United’s preference.

 

top 7 most expensive players (rated on T-Markt) are all in play this summer potentially

I think due to COVID and clubs being (Barca and RM even without COVID) in shit financial shape other than us, Citeh, and PSG, zero chance they all move

In fact, I would not be shocked if none did (Håland being the most likely to actually go, especially if Dortmund bottle CL for next season, plus Mbappe if he doesn't renew)

  
Kylian Mbappé    
Harry Kane    
Erling Håland   
Mohamed Salah    
Neymar

But it's the return of investment here - short term vs long term. You spend 100 million+ on Kane now and in 2-3 years' time, you will be going out to spend big money on a striker again.

I don't think Kane's nationality is an attraction at all. It's just a bonus, if anything. It's not like United or City need a big English player to tap into the English market or anything.

Will there really be a bidding war for Haaland this summer if Dortmund insist on their 150 million demand? Moreover, I'd imagine it's easier to negotiate with Dortmund compared to Levy.

In 40 years exactly.

Well hopefully we can finish in the CL places so we can be in play for all these strikers. Haaland probably won’t look our way if we’re bidding giant other big clubs who can offer CL footy.

Won't be surprised if both Haaland and Kane just stay where they are this summer. Clubs still seem wary of spending BIG while still feeling financial impact caused by the pandemic.

Just imagine if we hadn't fucked it up against West Brom and Brighton recently. Could have been virtually safe in the Top 4 already...

On another note, each of our remaining game will be so stressful to watch. Every league game is like a cup final. We have the Champions League semi-final. And then, there's the actual cup final itself in the FA Cup.
