He's 33 now, as good as he's been with a team built around him would he really be able to do it at another club that would have to take a year or two to build around him? With no Ballon d'or this year we don't even know if he was in the running for it, pretty certain Ronaldo wasn't so maybe their time has passed. I certainly wouldn't be keen on Liverpool paying a million a week for him to join us.

Scamp wanna try and translate what one of your Saints fan is trying to say? I have more important things to bitch about besides those squatters at the Emptyhad. If Messi was 65 yrs old the Saints couldn't afford his Zimmer frame to help get him around the pitch.

The BE league code is 9udhlp if I remember correctly.

I think there's at least two BE leagues. There's one in the Canada section as well as the one GMike mentioned recently.

Should Messi go to City, I wonder if it's possible to have him in the squad and afford 14 others :lol:

How many ****ing midfielders do we need. Is it the plan to keep the ball as long as possible so the other team cant score? According to our official website we currently have 10 midfielders without the ones we are about to sign or maybe sign.
Looking at some of our defensive woes then maybe sign some of them rather than midfielders unless we want to get rid of some of them. We only have 4 strikers as such Martial, Rashford, Ighalo and Greenwood but website shows Chong is included as a striker.

I must admit that was my initial reaction when I saw the potential Beek signing too. We really do need a decent striker. Callum Wilson is available and would be reasonably cheap, I'd give him a wirl if we rally can't get anyone else. What about Higuain for a season?

As for a CB, well that is going to cost a pretty penny, and other than Koulibaly I don't think I've seen us be linked with another decent quality one. There aren't that many out there that would improve us rather than just add to the numbers.

Perhaps I over estimated with the year or two...
Premier League's top clubs make second push for five substitutions

The Premier League is split over the use of five substitutes for the coming season with the big clubs pushing for the rule to be implemented at Thursday’s shareholder meeting and the smaller ones digging in against it. The matter was voted on at the last meeting on 6 August when it was proposed by the league’s board and defeated by 11 votes to nine. If new legislation is to be passed, it requires a two-thirds majority – in other words, 14 votes in favour.
There was also a vote on whether to persist with nine players on the substitutes’ bench rather than seven, with 10 votes in favour and 10 against.

That's how I always felt about our summer signings, always midfielders. To be fair though I was right, as soon as we signed some defenders and a keeper we improved.

I know its The SUN but **** me if it turns out to be true. How about buying your own stadium instead of players? Bloody squatters but the reply will be we pay our fair share towards rent.
According to Record Sport, Messi has agreed financial terms on a five-year contract worth a total of €700m (£623m).The incredible deal would make the Argentine the highest-paid individual in the history of the sport.

It equates to £14,200 an hour, £341,000 per day, £2.4m every week and a whopping £10.4m per month.

Messi is set to spend three seasons at the Etihad before joining City Football Group's (CFG) Major League Soccer side New York City FC for two years.

All well and good, but he has to get out of his Barca contract first, and they ain't budging it seems.

I tend to think most teams would improve if they have a keeper :sneaky: So right got it DeGea or Henderson in goal and 10 midfielders.
