yes it doesn't make sense to get in a 34 yr old, no matter how good.

for many years I had mixed up Alvez with Sergio Ramos. and so when I was watching Alvez and I'd say 'he's such a cheating c^nt' I'd make myself look an even bigger tool than I am known for.

Boac.. :D
Hes worth a short contract maybe 2 years for his experience and he still is decent enough for the cl
And has something to give and he is a pep player all day long.

The rumour mill gathers apace.
Seems we will let nacho go to Leicester for £25M ( good cos I cant spell his name) and buy Sanchez. It appears that Spurs want £50M for Walker, about as much chance as me getting £5000 for my 2008 VW Passat. Alves still seems likely, but I am still concerned by his age. Whilst there is talk of centre halves, Bonnuchi, Van Dijk etc, I hope that this is a bigger priority than Sanchez.
I am sure Pep has a plan, but I would like to see a bit more progress on the important things like defence rather than what could be considered vanity projects like Sanchez.
Speaking of vanity , what odds on Ronaldo and Mourinho sharing a rat infested cell in some Spanish Jail?

Our young defender signed a new deal, maybe he'll get a chance

Alvez for 5 mil is a decent deal, although his wages seem astronomical. He's more mobile and essentially better than any of the players we released. We do need to get on the case with fullbacks though, because the 34 year d shpuld be our cover/tutoring competition, not our first choice.

We still need a young rb like walker though.
As good as he was already was injured a bit of last season.

Just hope we get the folks were after.
The only sticky wicket is Sanchez...dont know if we need him. But if we did get him then that attack would be scary.

Mendy and a center back .
If chavs go for van dick from saints we need to get bonnuci.

Is Walker even all that? He's 27, looks a bit Arabian and was usurped towards the end of last season by someone who was a youth player at City

Oh, and I'm sure Danny will agree, he looks a right cunt with those tattoo's

Borussia Dortmund attacker Ousmane Dembélé (20) is in Manchester, has met with City bosses and even dined with Pep Guardiola. [@le10sport]

Yes he is quality, but was Pep's season not enough of a shake up to realise its our defence that wants a facelift.

I read something that Pep wasn't even in Manchester on the night in question

Also: straight swap for Sanchez with Coon? Get the fuck out

Is anything happening?
Rumours that Alves is not coming.
Rumours that Sanchez is coming.
We don't need another small tricky midfield forward. He would be nice, of course, but it will not be the end of the world if he doesn't come.
We need a defence. Vincent is good but his fitness is dodgy and I think that when he plays Otamendi or Stones play better with him.
We need another good central midfielder. Van Dijk would fit the bill so why are we not throwing money at him?
We need full backs. What is happening with Mendy and Walker?
If Ytd will pay silly money to getLukaku into fifth place and Arse are paying daft money to come sixth why are we not spending good money to buy a defence?
Why haven't we given Bravo away to Peterborough or somewhere?
What will happen to Joe? No one seems to want him for the money we are asking.
Is Marwood still running things?

Read today that we want to buy Reina, the ex Scouse goalkeeper.
If we do then Bravo is on his bike!!!!
It appears that Pep wants Reina as back up for the new Lad.
Now it strikes me that Pep might be one of the word's best football coaches, but I am sure he knows very little about goalkeepers.
Boots out a perfectly good one, buys the worst one since Ytd got Taibi, boots him out and gets a little lad and someone old enough to be his Dad.
And he lets Willy go to an important rival.

A deal has been agreed for Danilo of Real Madrid

I'd have put it in the players thread with his own thread but you know.......

*goes to youtube to watch 3 or 4 highlight reels with 'banging' euro club music and hundreds of comments attacking a poster/football club/nationality*

If PSG want to continue to offer our targets stupid money then fair enough. As long as they don't do it to any more of our full back targets
