    He’s just handed over a million quid to buy shiny new hardwood lungs for coronavirus victims in Madrid and Wales, though.

    13 years, wow. Shame we didn’t get a few more seasons out of him when he was really firing. Had he peaked a couple of years later with the squad under Poch, we would've been champions.

    If he had spent that 4 years with us rather than Madrid, playing with Kane, Alli and Son, he’d have won 8 European cups

    Do we have a thread for all our hypothetical trophy wins? I presume it's right next to the "If my aunt had boll*cks she'd be my uncle" thread.

    Personally I think Kane Son and Bale in the team would be a nightmare because we'd never have possession of the ball, all three are going to shoot from anywhere + everywhere plus without selling Bale we probably wouldn't have got Eriksen...And he was the fulcrum, the one that kept the ball moving for most of Poch's reign, whilst Dembele wasn't out of action anyways..

    Maybe, maybe not.

    IIRC Eriksen was snapped up as something of a bargain buy which was part of the appeal, he also wasn't bought as a direct replacement for Bale. So I'd like to think we'd have picked him up in any case.

    Hmm that's a fair point, it could've been the case. It's just once you go in to the dreamland of everything working out everything obviously starts to lean in our favour. As my previous post suggests I'm not a huge fan of that way of thinking. Don't get me wrong I love back to the future as much as the next guy (apart from the weird incest vibes) but once you start altering things in the past everything else may not be the same as it was!

    Oops I get it now, your original post was obviously not meant literally.

    Never heard of it! Only got prime but I am on the lookout for another series having finished Firefly recently (not that it takes that long obviously)..


    I'm not sure if I've been clear, now I'm confused haha.

    Honestly it hits that nerve of us over-rating the teams we've had. Don't get me wrong, with a few changes here and there they can look like world beaters on paper but therein lies the problem. A real stinging reminder is a look at some of the Utd lineups that beat us over the years, cobbled together over rated dogbrick yet we claim we were one player away from winning multiple CLs? Please (as in, the sassy puuuhleeaase).

    Anyways, happy anniversary of signing Bale yesterday to everyone! Up there alongside Kane for player most people were totally wrong about at one stage or another (me being one yid among many singing "he plays on the left" in reference to Bale at Goodison Park one time a while back :eek:)
