    Agreed on expectations. With their ageing squad and overall problems most managers would get a passing grade at least for that first season.

    Some of his skills certainly seem transferable. But yeah, he's unproven at a lower level club and without any real money.

    I think he's a little confused.

    In his recent interview he keeps talking about winning trophies. He clearly means buying them.

    He needed a new challenge? He wanted to play with world class players? Who? Stones? Bravo? Sterling? I am getting increasingly tinkled off with Kyle.

    You gotta say all that brick at your new club. Everyone does.

    did you see their defence at times last season, it's a huge challenge

    plenty of talent at City, let's not tempt fate

    He always struck me as a bit thick. Seems to be proving it now.

    Tottenham was too small for him. He's definitely the best right-back in the Premiership at the moment. I am guessing Spurs will want more than £55m for E.Dier. What a team MC is building...

    Certainly did not do himself any favours in that interview.

    Was once a time when that was us. Maybe we were never quite so gung-ho with the cheque book but 8 of the first choice Double side were purchased for what were considered big fees at the time.

    I did at the time but maybe now in hindsight with what's happened to Lennon it's less funny.

    Mexico..All's I'm saying
    I really don't begrudge Walker moving on. He was dropped/rested or whatever in most of the big games last season and after 9 years at the club, you'd want to be starting ALL of the CL games, especially considering that we weren't in the CL for the majority of his time at Spurs. That's without even mentioning that he's probably doubled his wages.

    The fact is he does stand a better chance of winning trophies at Emirates Marketing Project IMO. Despite the fact that we have a better starting eleven IMO, he was right about saying we lacked the "edge" to win trophies. I don't know what word I was use to describe it but we do clearly lack that extra 5% or 10% that's required to get you over the line.
