    Eh ?
    Are these in The Echo or something ?
    Ake has confirmed heís staying as Chelsea wouldnít put up the money City wanted. Barca canít afford Silva even if they force De Jong to United. City would want crazy money for him and heís still under a long contract.
    Definitely in a better position if Cucurella joins . I also think Alvarez will be a surprise package this season .
    Losing Sterling and Jesus doesnít really weaken us either as Palmer , Kayky and Macatee from the academy will be given more minutes this season.
    Plus, thereís another name coming in . Watch this space.

    From what Iíve read De Jong doesnít mind leaving Barca but they have been told he doesnít want to go to United and to stop talking to them.

    Barca are a joke. They still owe De Jong Ä17m in wages not to mention the mountain of debt they have yet theyíre buying and bidding for players like they're using Monopoly money.

    Iím more gutted at losing Jesus than Sterling and Zinchenko will be a big lossÖ.. he was immense in final game v Villa but with these changes going on at the club itís hard not to see Pep extending.

    Liverpool are going all in for Bellingham next year but I think we look light in the middle and would have like him in this year.

    Ox - terrible.
    Thiago - fantastic but injury prone
    Kieta - solid but again injury prone.
    Milner - solid but only a bit part player now.
    Jones - donít rate him at all.

    We definitely need a quality player adding in there and I think that could be the difference this year for us.

    ĎDoffs hatí
    Besides being part of one of our most momentous moments, Iíve always had a soft spot for QPR . Even losing there never seemed as bad as some places. One of the most recognizable kits in football too. In the early 2010s , with all that money , there mustíve been huge optimism for the future? If you can find Nedum Onuoha s podcast with Adel Taraabt, itís well worth a listen .

    In truth Tony i think you guys are in with a decent shout as we and the “ other mob” are , City look like a shoe in but all it takes is Harland or KDB getting a serious injury at the season start for the picture to alter same for Salah but re LFC glad to see Mane gone

    On another note though, quite why are people seem to be making such a big thing of Mane leaving in spite of 1. a replacement has already been bought 2. Liverpool still have Salah, Jota, Diaz, Firmino 4. They made a January purchase of one of the best youth players from Fulham.

    Its not so much Ox is a bad player he just has a terrible injury record (Injured again and the season hasnt started yet!) The whole Bellingham story is just to keep the fans happy reality is there will be a push to promote someone from the youth system into the midfield I dont see any major purchase coming in next season especially with Salah signing a new contract.
    Bellingham is Liverpool number 1 target next year. Itís not paper talk itís fact, we are going all out to land him.

    Heís the one player who left City over the past few years that I was really sad to see go. Immense talent with blistering pace but hasnít really lived up to his potential. Pep reportedly had issues with him over his attitude and application so, unless heís changed, heíd have the same problem at Arsenal under Arteta. If he ever delivers on his potential then whichever club heís at will benefit enormously.

    Arsenal turning into Manchester City old boys. And thatís not too bad an idea if Arteta can get them performing.

    Not a bad thing, Jesus is looking good in pre-season. If he stays fit I think he will be up there for the golden boot

    Zinchenko is also a solid left back, as Tierney will spend all season injured again.

    Hate to be positive as an Arsenal fan, but we could have a decent season, by decent I just mean a outside chance of a top 4 finish.

    Apparently PSG offered City Neymar in exchange for Silva and Pep turned it down.

    Pleased with the Jesus and Zinchenko signings, my City mates saying both will 100% get proper applause when they go back to the Etihad and Zinchenko gives 100% every single week.

    The one thing Zinchenko is not, is a left back . Heís played there and he will always give 100% but Arteta hasnít bought him for that role . He will play midfield for Arsenal where you will get the best part of his game .

    Yes and I am sure he will be happier playing in midfield and a happy player is more often than not a better performing player, good addition for Arsenal.

    Yes, two really good signings. It's going to be an interesting battle for 3rd and 4th this season, with Utd also beginning to look like a far better proposition. Chelsea will be stronger, but we only finished three points behind them and in a relative sense I think our respective squads will be closer in terms of both depth and quality. We'll also have had Conte for pre-season, which will make a huge difference.

    So, my predictions for the season ahead:

    - Nottingham Forest top the table in August, but fade away by Christmas.

    - Jesse Marsch sacked.

    - Erik ten Hag claims it will take another 3 transfer windows to turn the team around, after a faltering start to the season.

    - Raheem Stirling criticised by Thomas Tuchel - <Er konnte kein Scheunentor mit einem Banjo treffen>

    - thegoat [sic] devotes more posts to talking about Liverpool than the team he claims to support.

    - Frank Lampard sacked before Christmas.

    - Eddie Howe sacked. Benitez, Guardiola, Pochettino, Zidane, Conte and (recently sacked) Mourinho linked with the role.

    - Ryanb741 devotes more posts to talking about Liverpool than any of the teams he claims to support at the time.

    - Antonio Conte claims it will take another 3 transfer windows to turn the team around, after a faltering start to the season. Demands support from the board or he will leave.

    - Erling Haaland spends a night in hospital after being knocked out by Jordan Pickford in a freak Kung Fu kick accident following a corner. Pickford claims Haaland dived.

    - Harry Kane falls into the foetal position clutching one of his shins - at least 4 times every match. Fails to get booked for diving. Reveals in interview that he was a Bayern Munich fan as a boy.

    - Want away striker Christiano Ronaldo refuses to train with Man Utd at the beginning of the season. Wins golden boot.

    - Fan trouble before the PSG v Bayern Munich Champions league match blamed on drunken scousers.

    - Major incident declared in Manchester as loud screaming leads paramedics to wrongly believe that Bruno Fernandes has been injured.

    - Ryanb741ís reliable source revealed as one of the check-out girls at Kingston Primark.

    - Several posts clarifying that Man City/Newcastle/PSG/[your team here] is not actually state owned, and even if it were, lots of other teams/owners/sponsors are also guilty of sport washing/murder/money laundering/human rights abuses, so thats ok and shut up.

    - North London cub scouts choose to <Visit Rwanda> for this year's camp. 3 months later 7 of them turn up at a refugee camp outside Calais. 15 children plus Akela still missing.

    - Matches involving Liverpool once again voted most entertaining of the season. Liverpool don't win any trophies.

    - Jack Grealish signs lucrative Lap Rug advertising contract with The Edinburgh Woollen Mill company.

    - Mikel Arteta sacked.

    - Phil Foden finally realises that his barber has actually just been taking the piss all these years. Demands his £7.65 back.

If you can find Nedum Onuoha s podcast with Adel Taraabt, itís well worth a listen .
    When we won our first PL title in 2012 I was sat in the away end with the QPR fans as it was the only tickets I could get, right next to the chap who always has that bloody vuvuzella! When Aguero scored THAT goal I jumped up and was expecting a punch in the face but the fans couldnít have been nicer all celebrating with me, a good bunch indeed!

    Was at the Rangers Spurs game today and didnt realise how good Harry Kane is. Only ever seen him play on tv so you donít get to see what some of the things he is really good at. His running off the ball was superb, dragging defenders all over the place. 1st goal he scored was excellent. Not many opposition players get a standing ovation when going off at Ibrox. Best player Iíve seen in a long time. World class

    Kane is brilliant.
    I posted on last years Prem discussion that he ran the game at City . He scored and he was unplayable that day . A great player on his day .
    Plus , watching live is infinitely better than on TV .

    'On his day' I think is key. He does unfortunately have many games when he goes missing which means that whilst he is a top striker he isn't quite at 'elite' level. Personally I think Son is a better player although of course they are completely different.

    Sorry Ryan, I think your bias makes you deny Kane the credit he undoubtedly deserves.

    He is very much in the elite without doubt for me.

    By elite I mean world class. So Mbappe, Haaland, Neymar, Salah etc.

    Kane isn't on the same level as those players. Don't get me wrong he'd get into the Arsenal team but he'd not get into a World Squad

    Kane is class. He is on the same level as lewandowski, Salah and kdb as the best 4 players in the world currently.

    His big mistake was signing the contract extension 3 years ago which pretty much signed his best years to spurs who have won nothing.

    He will probably join one of the big clubs in his 30s, win a champions League and wonder what he could have won......

    Wonder how many games Spence will get now Conte's made it clear he did not sign him.

    Well it looks like Bayern may be in for Kane so it may be he gets his chance sooner than that.
