    Can we stop buying players who are made of pipe cleaners and and sellotape please. 

    Read that injury record is a key criteria in our recruitment. So we are really having rotten luck.

  2. Not worth getting too invested in any one player in the Academy, as youth development is unpredictable. JPB and Archer were hardly talked about even up until a few weeks back.

  3. Unfortunately we are in transfer market purgatory where the players we need to bring in to challenge for Europe will command top dollar and the ones we want to move on - there is hardly a market for. Let's take Traore as an example. He bought him for around GBP 17M including add-ons. Based on last season (7 goals, 6 assists) he should probably be worth 25-30M now, but which club would potentially pay that much for him? He is not good enough for the Greedy 6  and the rest could not really afford him.  I feel this will become a reality to our management in the next few windows and we will focus much more on promoting the Academy players and scouting for players with high upside like Konsa.

    Jack has been rubbish for City and England. He plays in a totally different way. He never carries the ball anymore. It’s his greatest strength! We will be buying him back for £25m at this rate. Grass not always greener!

    It's going to be like Antoine Griezmann at Barca scenario.

    Not sure about that - they have 8/9 players listed in U18 - with no date of birth.

    Yeah. They even have the wrong number for Sanson and I don't see Patterson listed despite a few appearances for the U23s.

    Surely loaning him out for a season is better than terminating his contract or keeping an unhappy player? At least we'll get something out of it money-wise. 

    You mean like we did with Hourihane last season? If Strasbourg are paying his full wages, then guess we don't have too much to lose, but I rather not extend the drama.
