    Fuck. Dembele is not leaving which means no Depay.

    Man, fuck Dembele.

    Ok. So we flopped on every single deal. And could only move Rafinha for a fucking dollar (well 3M in potential add ons).

    So we've sold Suarez, Rakatic, Vidal and now Rafinha for a total of 2M, with like 6M no e in potential money. Goddamn this shit is depressing. We fucking suck. We have no striker. We worked for months to bring Eric Garcia back, for no fucking reason because Todibo and now Araujo are more than capable.

    Wtf is actually happening!?

    Edit: forgot about Vidal

    *Rafinha leaving and Todibo staying are NOT set in stone. Could change in the last half hour of the window.

    seems pretty clear now that city was just never gonna sell garcia after the whole messi thing

    which is fine - just wait 90 days to do the pointless todibo loan instead of ramming it through at the deadline for no real reason

    But like, why? Now Garcia is going to leave for free in Jan. or June at the latest. I get trying to get themost money out of a club you can, but at least get SOME money. Play Barcelona along for awhile but accept the 17M. I thought City did things smarter than this.

    What the fuck. Why do you want Depay? Dude is trash. Not a true 9. Not a great finisher. Literally would be awful for us. Not enough quality. Said that like 6 years ago or whenever he went to England.

    Dembele has a profile few players can match, and one that we really don’t have on our team. Should be playing over Trincao

    I don't give a fuck about Depay. Fuck Dembele. We need a striker. Griezmann and Messi are literally playing in the same position on the field. Dembele doesn't fix that, because Messi won't play up front in the 9.

    We've been doing this for years. We're not the only one doing it. ManU are reportedly in for almost 1B in loans to pay wages.

    The key caveat being:

    "“Goldman Sachs is an investment bank, not a money loan bank. The appearance of Goldman Sachs means that Barcelona has not been able to go to national entities to increase their debt. The reason is obvious: the club owes almost €500m to them in debt,” Ciria explained."

    :idk: I'm just doubtful that this is really any different. We've been going to the banks for more than a decade, I'd kind of expect some to start saying no eventually.

    Friendship with french players ended. Now Dutch players my best friend.

    Dembele, Griezmann, Umtiti can all fuck off. Lenglet still cool.

    Dest was not spectacular, but played ok out of his position.

    not gonna read too much into it with how little these hungarians are offering, but things just seem to make more sense with trincao (or any actual winger, really) and pjanic out there

    Good showing on that Pedri goal from Dembele. Credit where it's due. Not going to get be him much for that goal, Messi drew everyone and even I could have hit that shot.

    If Dembele can produce like that the rest of the season, I'll eat all my words of hate.

    It's Bartomeu fucking us on his way out the door. Convince these players to sign long contracts and they still get paid the same, just stay on the books longer. Now Pique is going to fuck us like Alba and Busquets contracts already are.

    Dembele needs to be starting over Griezmann. Literally couldn’t be worse. Dest doesn’t look to be at the level of everyone else right now. But will likely get the start in El Clasico. Good luck.

    joey jo-jo jr shabadoo you know for me, the action is the juice

    dembele and trincao can split it - dembele in the more open games where he will have some room to run, trincao in the games against tighter defenses that require more connected play and ability to operate in smaller spaces

    Jesus fucking Christ. The last 3 players that we'd ever want to sign long, drawn out contracts. Unless all of them are just restructuring for half wages then fuck this.

    I’m willing to bet that if we were to set aside our differences and combine squads we’d have a team good enough to make the CL Quarters

    Koeman seems like a bull blown moron. Makes a sub at 80 minutes. And it’s the entire attacking line. Some bush league, FIFA shit. I mean seriously, what is that?

    Is Jurgen Klopp a moron too? He took off the "world's best" front 3 at 60' earlier this week against Ajax.

    Little different when you do it at the 80’. Are you defending the decision or just bringing up bullshit?
     
  35. Artoo

    Well, it's two different things. I AM defending the full front 3 subs. They weren't working in the 2nd. Good to get fresh legs in there. I AM NOT defending the timing. Subs should have come on at least at 60'. Pjanic should have come on at half for Busquets.

    Just no way to find any sort of organization when you completely flip the attack all at once. And you only have 10 mins to figure all that out

    What a fucking win. We could have had 3 more goals. Looked so good out there cycling the ball around and attacking. Was very worried after half when we learned Araujo was out and FdJ was moving to CB. Could have been ugly. But we just retained possession and Frenkie was never really challenged.
