They've learned from the Auba circus and added a sell on clause to Bellerin's transfer. Interestingly, he only signed with Barca for one year.
Not recouping fees for players is a good indication of how messed up our squad was. I think reducing our wage bill has been significan, however. A fun game is going through our squad now and guessing their transfer fee. We've banked some real value.
Going deep into Europe and the domestic cups, playing 50+ games, and having the gate receipts this season will do wonders to our bottom line. And I think, strategically, spending big in the midst of the pandemic, when clubs in Europe were desperate for money, was savvy.
Haha - cue the injuries. Would've loved a full strength squad for this game. Especially as ten Hag has selected the same squad for the past three games. Really looking forward to it. Hoping for a victory this week, instead of expecting one.Our first big test for the season...
+ * man united /spit
Sadly won't go down as a gunners legend but will firmly remain as one of my favorite players.
Injuries ruined a fantastic player and at 27 should have been with us for another 5+ years.
Need a result tonight, Man United are nothing special at the moment and we need a "Top 6" scalp to prove the early run isn't all bluster.
That being said now watch Ronaldo score his obligatory goal against us and Antony for a debut hat-trick
