    I can't be either of those things, I have at least 3 black friends and at least 3 gay friends.

    That’ll buy like a whole new bench within the league won’t it?

    Salah will have nowhere the year he had this year again but Fekir and Keita will be a nice ass window for them.

    Is Fekir pretty much a done deal? Hope not. Can leaving helps but the midfield is pretty crowded at Liverpool if they can manage to all be fit at the same time for once. Fekir is really good but doesn’t seem like a Klopp player who is willing to press all game and stay disciplined. I haven’t seen him play all that much though so this take is probably fueled by alcohol and not wanting Pool to make another great signing.

    What's the general consensus on best media outlet/twitter follow to believe for transfer rumors/reports? It's crazy the amount of shit they are allowed to spew with literally no sources just for clickbait.

    I like newsnow.uk. You can isolate for Spurs and then they have content filters beyond that. Twitter wise, I really don’t follow anyone in particular, just following arsenal related shit feeds the hog.

    General rule of thumb is all transfer news is bubkas. Newsnow is a good way to just see what is being written. I'm partial to the Guardian football section myself as a "legitimate" source of news.

    For Spurs i like to trawl Spurs Community for the EEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY TEEEEEEEEEE KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY shit which is probably grounded in a millimeter of truth and a whole mountain of bull kaka

    I've found spurs media watch on the tottenhamhotspur site is a pretty good aggregator and then sift through that. Not sure if other clubs have something similar. Just didnt know if there was a go to source that you could trust once they picked up a story.

    General rule of thumb as a Wolves fan:

    Nothing is true until they’re sitting in the Molineux dressing room holding the shirt.

    Usually you need to find the local papers/reporters. The mainstream English/Spanish/German papers mostly just write nonsense.

    I personally enjoy that the official Manchester City website has a "In the news" section where they just list all the BS transfer rumors with links to the stories

    I like Bavarian Football Works because the writer is a sarcastic fuck, like myself. There are a handful of German and Arab outlets that are dialed in to transfer stuff but I have to translate those to English. I like Bild too.

    If they get a goalkeeper they are going to be a lot better next season. Him and keita are 2 top buys.

    Their CL run was more a silly season distraction than a legitimate chance at a trophy

    Yeah they would’ve owed us more next year for the increased recognition. But being 2 years into a 3 year contract made it much more justifiable for our owners to buy out the deal that the fans hated because 1) it’s a predatory payday lender and 2) it was a cheapshot parting “gift” from Steve Morgan a week before he sold the club.

    Why do City want to spend that kind of cash on a player they don’t need at all?
