So transfer madness about to start!

Looks like Citeh will sign Jorginho as a holding mf and Mahrez to bolster our atticking options. I still think we need another lb in case Mendy gets injured.

Who are your respective teams likely to sign.

We've signed that Stuart Armstrong from Celtic and Mohamed Elyounoussi who looks decent.

We're linked with almost everyone ever to play the game but if the news that Carillo is going to **** off is true I'll be quite pleased.

I'm pretty happy with the Arsenal signings so far, sounds like we have Sokratis coming in 1st July and this Torreria (I think?) coming in too.

As Cainess said, it'll be interesting to see the squads after the transfer window - few players putting in solid performances at the WC will be looking to move on to bigger clubs I'd imagine.

Yeah, I can't imagine Kane staying at Tottenham too much longer.

So several days ago when I heard a PL team had been fined 4.75 million for breaching Financial Fair Play rules I thought Oh goody that side in Manchester have been caught out or Liverpool have been victimized again. But no it was Bournemouth

Bournemouth agree 4.75m settlement with EFL for breach of FFP rules | Football News | Sky Sports

That is an easy mistake to make but you failed to consider the inherent unfairness of FFP, which inevitably means that smaller clubs will be constrained whilst the Yernited's, Madrid's and Barca's can carry on spending ever greater sums. The Manchester club has made a profit in the last 2 years using a business model sinimilar to the club just outside Manchester (less the debt servicing). FFP was carefully crafted to stop smaller clubs challenging the elite 'big clubs' and, fortunately, is nothing for Citeh to worry about now given the new souless business model copied from Yernited.

CR7 to Juve. Interesting, but seems a bit strange that Ronaldo would go to what is basically the SPL but with nicer weather. I guess he must be getting an ever fatter wedge there than in Spain.

yeah but he is 33 and there is no way his ego would fit in the same stadium as Maureen's so not many choices for him
