It'll be an interesting year for Chelsea, plenty more work for Pochettino to do.

Pochettino is an interesting way of spelling Judas cunt.

Don't worry, he'll be available again at Christmas. (we seem to do this every year with Chelsea)

Edit, away from the prem. Northampton Town to get relegated.

Liverpool to sell most of the rest of their squad to Saudi Arabia, who are using their oil money to buy players from teams that threaten Newcastle ;)

Half of them will probably end up on loan at Newcastle anyway.

It'd be really funny if there was something in their contract that allows them to designate a loan club for a single year - and then the Saudis punted all the best players from their 4 top teams over to the Barcodes for a year :D

I'm a bit suss of the Saudi's buying out all these aging players and paying double digit millions for the transfers, something just screams FFP bypass.

I'm saying that in frustration that they won't buy Maupay from us for £5m, let alone £50m.

I hope for a better season for Everton now, I'm not worried about top half finish yet but as long as we can avoid a relegation scrap that will do me.

We're finally by the looks of things getting in some forwards. The preseason hasn't been fantastic by any stretch but as long as they're getting a run.

I think we long as we stick with Dyche we should be safe.

There is no FFP for Saudi @Gray.

I'm hoping the toffees have a better season too. And that City get fined back to the 80's ;)

No I mean the reverse, they're giving such big millions (because they can) but it also improves the selling teams FFP as it reduces their expenditure

So clubs can sell their aging 30+ star for £20m even though they're maybe worth half that, then the club doesn't have as much issue buying a 23 year old for £50m

To be fair, I'd have driven Fabhino to the airport myself for £40m.

I know they're getting paid stupid amounts of money, but would you go and play football in Saudi Arabia? I can't think of a worse place.

If I had the bank accounts that some of these players have, nope. But there would be few things I wouldn't do for some of the wages being thrown about. Even for a year, fuck it, even a month would work.

I think this was the sort of discussion on talksport, there was pushback from one of the commentators because in essence it isn't as if they aren't already getting loads of money already.

Football is fooked isn't it.

Apparently Liverpool are 2nd favourites to win from Opta, at 5.2% chance of beating City.

:(

Harry Kane really needs to leave Spurs otherwise his career could end without any silverware, matching Spurs recent record.

It is quite an odd move, I know we were going for him but we didn't want to spunk that kind of money on him. Their value based on the fact he recently signed a new contract and his agent wasn't smart enough to stick a buyout clause in it.
Even Brighton didn't think anyone would spunk that on him.

I guess needs must. If he's as good as they say he is (at 21?) then maybe he's the jigsaw piece that puts us back in contention. But I doubt it.

Well it is a gamble, something my dad keeps forgetting every time he sees such silly money for a young player.

Should have said "no" on either Hendo or Fab tbh. We put pressure on ourselves there.

Someone needs to put their head above the parapet and say "we have a thing called a rule of law and it's about time some of you cunts started appreciating that before we descend into anarchy".

Only gonna get worse when Labour gets in tbh.

If football manager is anything to go by, Haaland is frightening, into his early 30s.
