    Actually, if they'd bought Luis Suarez instead of Ozil that would have been marquee. They didn't really need Ozil but they did need a striker of the calibre of Suarez. They panicked and bought a player they didn't need so in the end it wasn't really marquee given what they could/should have bought/needed..


    Mahrez is good but has always been slightly flaky at that level. City with their array of attacking players are able to cover this. Were there many others trying to get Mahrez, either in the PL oor abroad? I doubt it.
    Now, imagine if City had bought, say, Eden Hazard. Now that would have been marquee! Similarly if they break their record and sign Kane this summer...scary...


    Ditto Modric was one of the hottest young prospects in Europe when we bought him. As good as Pulisic is, i don't think he's at the quality level in his position that Modric was in his at the time.


    Established in Portugal. I'll raise you 'established in France' or 'established in Spain' (NDombele and Lo Celso). As i say, if either of our two had played long enough under a more aggressive/attacking manager than Jose we'd might be lauding them in the same way Penandes is currently.

    I agree with parts of this and i'd also like a DoF to have more control of squad building, purchasing etc.
    We have done a few 'big signings' in the transfer market ourselves at times, but the bar is higher since he stadium built and the time is now to see if Levy/ENIC can 'step up' as it were...time will tell (i don't believe they will but time will tell)

    Really happy for the guy. Despite the last 8 months or so, the guy was class for us and he really did Poch's teams tick

    Totally agree, he has left a massive hole in our midfield. One of the reasons Conte sounded a good idea was he may have brought him back.

    He wanted to leave but we did not know how to make the best of the situation. I blame Levy and Hitchen much more than Erikssen and Poch.

    Truly sickening scenes on Saturday:(

    That message of appreciation i posted seemed oddly timely, given it looks like he wont play again (though that should probably the least of his worries tbh)

    Get well soon Christian...

    Can't remember where I heard it, but yesterday or today I'm sure I heard a doctor mentioning that the Italians are stricter around health controls relating to cardiac issues and so Eriksen may not be allowed to play again in Serie A, even if he seems to recover.
    Of course there's speculation regarding what the precise cause of this issue was, but it's stark to hear that Italian regulations may forbid him from coming back to Inter

    ICYMI interview with professor Sharma, the cardiologist who checked up on Eriksen when he was a Tottenham player.
