    Richards is a moron

    - If Pep wanted an outright striker, Kane should be the choice
    - If you wanted to dominate the league/CL, lose Aquero, Jesus, Sterling and bring Kane & Mbappe in
    - City needs a DM replacement badly, Fernandino is fudging what, 35 now? and that should be higher up the list than Grealish
    - I like Grealish but I also struggle to believe if you could spend £80M on a CM, he'd be your go to guy

    Why he had to leave Villa:

    370k a week
    A few plastic trophies
    The coaching genius of Guardiola

    With referees being not quite so picky over fouls this season letting more fouls go.
    It may of halves the value of Grealish

    It’ll only last a couple of weeks, the fans and press will lose their brick over perceived inconsistencies before the officials are advised to actually apply the laws as written again.

    It’s about time Pep was backed isn’t it? What’s he supposed to do with that squad?

    I had to check it out, and that's about as much as Spurs have spent on new players for the past 14 seasons combined.

    Their lineup today was the most expensive in history

    I'm somewhat surprised they don't seem to be after a Fernandinho replacement, what with the guy being 37 and all. Rodri seems the only like for like and City don't appear to be entirely convinced by him.

    City/Pep aren't particularly great at planning a side

    Said it elsewhere, Pep inherited Aguero, Jesus, Fernandinho, KDB, Sterling, Kompany, David Silva, Sane amongst others

    Didn't really plan to replace Kompany, seems like Dias is that one
    Didn't really plan properly with David Silva, still not sure who that is
    No plan re Fernandinho
    No plan re Aquero, this half assed attempt at Kane

    If you know you have a budget of £150-£250M a window, can't be that fudging hard to improve the side over time.

    Hmm, you can do that with any decent squad from time though imo - Have we replaced Toby, Verts, Dembele, Eriksen etc. As unfortunate as it is, the difference is that they're still going to be up there competing for the top honours (although to be fair, as you mentioned, the budget is there to get in top level 1st teamers in at the drop of a hat).

    Appreciate that the net spend is going to be a key factor but for me it's hard to argue that they've not executed the plan well, no disputing the trophies etc. Not going to change anyone's mind on the lack of a CL = failure given the investment. I don't expect everyone to be publicly fawning over them however the football has been something to behold over the years. Usually they have two quality players in each position but right now there's a few obvious things to fix. People thought they were totally fudged at the start of last season IIRC, yet annoyingly they just stormed away with the league..

    The interesting hypothetical question for me is how Pep would've fared coming to us (as unrealistic as it is, rather than Poch). It seems like there's a lot who aren't convinced in his abilities without the chequebook ie "fraudiola" which I can understand given his previous clubs.
