Looks like we got the right striker from the Portuguese league. Soz Liverpool.

Juventus should have done what Chelsea are doing. Sign players on lifetime contracts to spread out the cost.

That would explain Man Uniteds last decade.


To be fair, prior to Moshiri coming in it would be relatively accurate. We were a financially small club but with Moyes and some shrewd investments we were competing up the top. From 2006-07 to 2013-14 the lowest we finished was 8th. We bought in bargains like Cahill, Arteta, Lescott, Jagielka and Baines.

Gakpo ranked 50th best player in the world by Guardian. Now he may turn out to be worthy of that but not at the moment

Got to love that. As soon as there is a player transfer to any of the big half dozen clubs in the PL, you can be sure there will be some rubbish ranking like that.

Arsenal and Manchester City each have about 11 players on any given MD better than Gakpo.
