[quote]Zaza to Wolfsburg is still dragging on...[/quote] He seems to be holding out hope for an Italian team but it's not likely. Bruno Peres to Roma though is moving quickly . . . Add Hakim Ziyech and Amadou Diawara if we beat Porto in the CL playoff and this may well be the greate...

[quote]i don't care about intentions. that's the end result[/quote] Yeah, to what degree FFP was intended to separate superpowers from clubs just below them is really beside the point. Like you say, the reality is that it has, just like all the critics said it would. The problem with FFP is...

[quote]I do wonder if the elite teams wold buy differently if they had fewer games to play. As it stands, the best teams play a shite ton of games with virtually no margin for error[/quote] That's a good point about the amount of matches. I do think that's the reason. Every team buys dept...

[quote]But isn't the whole point of a complete, box to box midfielder is having one who likes to both get forward in attack and drop back on defense? There's a huge difference in that and "he seems to want to be an attacking midfielder." That's severely underrating his defensive work.[/quote] ...

[quote]Not sure if noted model of consistency Yaya Toure is going to help your argument if your problem is that Pogba doesn't "dominate" often enough.[/quote] Toure is a kind of good comparison. In the attack, Pogba is probably only as consistent as Yaya was a few years ago. Sometimes simpl...

[quote]I'm going off the assumption they would bring in a quality replacement, which I think isn't hard.. In actual production on the pitch, I'm not Pogba's biggest fan.. i think he is a very good player that has extremely unbelievable moments, but I rarely see him dominate for 90 mins... Not say...
