    Season #25 coming up. Looks like the Barclays sponsorship is being dropped. Burnley, Middlesborough, and Hull are the three new teams. Don't know if anyone will be able to stop the Leicester dynasty this year doe.

    Ilkay Gundogan was confirmed to Man City today, though I'm guessing most big moves will be done after the Euros. Wonder who the big tournament buy will be.

    Arsenal will surely buy some terrible Hungarian flash in the pan 20 year old

    Holy shit, I knew he had hair plugs, but I didn't imagine it would be that obvious :laughing: :laughing:

    He'll merely plug a few expensive signings into the middle of the park, and Chelsea will be supple and smooth.

    Arsenal apparently triggered the release clause for Vardy. While I would be shocked if he had a season anywhere close to his last one, I think it would be a good move for Arsenal.

    Is actually a striker, and satisfies a HG slot. It's not the worst move.

    I would expect him to play on the wing mostly. But it also gives more flexibility to have him be able to play as a striker. Could go 2 strikers with him and Giroud. He could play on his own when they just need a counter attacking threat.

    Schedules have been released.

    Arsenal kick off the season hosting Liverpool, and then away at Leicester the following week.

    I think the gravy boat has sailed.

    You'll spend, but not like you have done in the past.

    In reality, I don't want Chelsea to spend like they have in the past. Buying a handful of uber expensive players and then just hoping they can play together isn't the way to go about it.

    And, to use a CFB analogy, I don't want all 5* guys. I want a few blue collar 3* guys who will bust their asses and do the dirty work.

    Certainly those elite playmakers are still desirable, but the point is, Roman doesn't need to buy three flashy wingers, or three #10s, all at huge prices. He needs to buy/build a unit that fits together.

    It also seems harder to do nowadays, feels like teams are asking a lot

    I dunno. At least we're trying to sign a striker. He can finish, which is the requirement.

    City's new home kit embodies Manchester and the alt brit pop movement in the mid 80's. I just want to listen to The Queen is Dead by looking at them.
