    Beat MLS 2-1, Monreal had a good game. Campbell and Akpom scored.

    If I was a football manager, I'd be coming here to read your posts and make bargain signings. A few years ago you recommended Michu in the EPL fantasy. I followed your advise and it paid off.

    I don't think I could take another season of Walcott.

    I'm very very very very very very impressed by Rob Holding, Willock and want Akpom to get a chance this season. Zelalem needs to be out on loan in the Bundesliga, SerieA or La Liga. Really impressive display.

    Chambers desperately needs to be loaned out.

    Sky Germany and Sky Sports have reported. And talks of a go ahead from his agent. Apparently, we want to do this quickly. Lets see what local Valencia papers have to say.

    How do you think he'll do with Kos? I'm pretty hyped of the prospect.

    If he's really that cheap I don't understand why a Bundesliga club like Schalke or Dortmund wouldn't be after him.

    Not do I. I don't get why Chelsea are chasing 45m koulibaly when the likes of Umtiti and now mustafi are going for under 30

    Hahaha yeah, years and years of Higuain to Arsenal rumours and we still don't have conclusive evidence that Higuian has actually heard of Arsenal

    I know but koulibaly is not double the player he is so I don't like paying double the price

    But Koulibaly plays at Napoli (De Laurettis doesnt sell) and Umtiti at Lyon, where he had an agreement with the presidente Aulas that if a club like Barça went after him, he would let him go for a fair price.

    But we could have outbid Barca if we had been so inclined

    Admittedly we got Zouma for like £12m so the real trick here is just to buy from France

    Personally, I'm really pissed off we didn't get or even try for Ousmane Dembele. He is a future Balon D'or candidate without a doubt. Or Dybala the summer he went to Juve. Should've done whatever the fuck it needed to be done to get them here.

    Imagine those two along with Xhaka, Cech, Holding and a proper rated CB over the windows of the past two years. Then its about tweaking the squad and replacing/upgrading/promoting kids in terms of player movement.

    Move on to Barca and Real at somepoint? Not a problem. Lots of great stuff for the club during that time and a mental fee.

    It doesnt matter what you get as long as Wenger is in charge

    Wenger is likely off after this season. Can't believe we screwed up the managerial merry go around and are so short of of options. Unless, obviously Don Cholo.

    We need someone in a directorial role, though. To work along with Gazidis. Works well for Atleti, RM, Barca, Bayern, BvB, Man City, Juve, Sevilla etc.

    Maybe, get in that Sevilla sporting director and Emery the ultimate dream.

    Monchi is only good for teams with poor resources, he is a gold digger (signed a lot of crap as well) but not for a big club where you have to get immediate performance.

    Well, then maybe, Overmars? No idea what he's doing at Ajax.

    That's how we got Koscielny for 9m.

    On the downside, he's Koscielny

    He's a little crazy sometimes but I'm a lot more confident when I see his name on the teamsheet.
