So Rabiot, Ramsey, Khedira, Matuidi and Can can’t! And so poor Emre is being hawked around.
So, summing up, our competitors spending money to improve and strengthen their squads - while we did nothing - makes it more likely that we will win the league, after we failed to win it last season?
Yeah, great stuff Mr fucking Logic
No dickhead it means that with the exception of City none of our top 4 rivals actually strengthened positions which have deficiencies, as I pointed out above.
Yes they did, you fucking clown
I'm sorry I must have missed that brilliant signing Arsenal made in defence. Oh wait you mean Luiz? And Spurs? Who did they replace Trippier, Rose or that Clown Lloris with?
Chelsea? Go on tell me Einstein who did they sign to replace the main creator of their goals? Or in defence where they're fucking gash?
And Utd, utterly abject in midfield and left back not to mention short up top I must have missed their super signings?
So please pipe fucking down, all these teams might have signed a few players here and there but none of them signed players where they glaringly lack quality to address the shite they have.
Arsenal signed Tierney to play LB and improved their midfield with Ceballos and Pepe.
Chelsea signed Pulisic, but I hardly class them as real competition this season, so they don't count so much.
United have spent £130m on the defence, which should allow the midfield to play more to their own strengths.
Spurs improved the midfield (and defensive solidity) with Ndombele, Sessegnon and Le Celso, and shipped out Tierney who was a fucking liability.
City spent £120m on a squad that already won every single domestic trophy.
So everyone has improved their team and squad apart from us, and simply ignoring signings because they don't fit your irrelevant speculation about where a team's real weakness exists is facile.
Trying to spin all that as a reason we are more likely to win the league than last season is fucking retarded.
So Arsenal signed a left back but decided to totally ignore the rest of their defence which is utter shite, yeah major improvements there. Pepe and Caballos might be ok signings but new to this league I'd say lets see how they fare before ridiculously claiming the have improved their midfield.
United have improved their defence, shame their midfield went missing yesterday when Neves scored that screamer
Spurs improved their midfiled that's it. Sessegnon will not improve their defensive frailities, he's a kid who did nothing last season for Fulham and is being blooded into the Spurs squad.
City as i said are the only ones who really went out and spent to strengthen their already invincible squad.
I never said/spun anything to say we would win the league however I think our 11 is the next best compared to City, the only question mark in our squad is in midfield and hopefully with a fully fit Naby and Ox it could be.
Finally United have their own "Aquilani." Alexis scored only 3 goals in his United career and now they will pay him £215,000 a week for the next 10 months to just go away and enjoy Italian food and sunshine.
Aquillani was Liverpools Veron
Watch him be a good signing for Inter now.
I'm with Hass. United are weaker now. Arsenal look about the same. Chelsea are weaker, though Mount and Abrahams might sort them out
United have definitely strengthened their defence but now look much weaker up front, how you can let both Lukaku and Sanchez go without a replacement is poor management. Can't see who is going to score the 15 goals Lukaku scored last season (12 in the PL), in addition to their own quota. I said we'll see a lot of 1-0 score lines at United this season (either way) and can't see any reason to change that opinion.
Arsenal are weaker. Luiz for Koscielny, ha. Pepe is a forward and they already had a good forward line that is now stronger. In midfield they lost Ramsey, difficult to see Ceballos being 'that' replacement in his first season.
Chelsea - transfer ban and Pulisic to replace Hazard. Much weaker though Mount looks great.
Spurs - Tierney & N'dombele definitely improved their defence/midfield. Sessegnon and Le Celso may end up being squad players, all to prove. Weird start to the season though and if Eriksen leaves I think they could be in the shit.
City - the only real threat to us and what a threat they are. Only upside could be the few aging players not at their prime - wishful thinking perhaps.
You're right, he's being fucking obtuse for the sake of it.
Arsenal were weakest last season at CB 6/8. So they bought one attacking fullback, a wing foward and a 10.
Chelsea were weakest upfront and scoring goals, they completed a signing of a midfielder but are banned so did nothing about their problems apart from get weaker.
Spurs don't have adequate cover for Kane, and it looks like they've let Dembele/Wanyama/Erikssen all go and replace them with Ndombele and a loan.
Utd have severe issues across the board, and all they brought in was a single CB and a youth team winger. Whilst letting go of plenty. Their 'senior' forwards are now Martial and Rashford.
Us and city 'stood still' so to speak, didn't lose anyone we didn't want to, but didn't really sign any improvements for the starting 11.
There are no possible improvements to our starting eleven !
City spent £140m on a squad that had already won every domestic trophy and was the best team in the league.
Dream the dreams of other men, you'll be no one's rival!
Smalling to Rome. I Guess that mean Lovren stays put?
Lovren is also linked to Roma again today
