I had something to say the other night after Everton Palace and Vieira kick. Not that it matters now. Been locked out of the site for a week!

All fingers pointing to Partey at Arsenal apparently.

You beat me to it. Look fantastic under Ten Hag so far, we have structure and work ethos finally. We’ll finish top 2 not sure about 1st spot though

Getting embarrassing all these high profile player’s who have rejected moves to the PL this transfer window even if they know their current club want them gone. Even Depay doesn’t want to come back to the PL apparently. Just shows money isn’t everything.

It's a gritty league with bad weather across most of the country. A lot of players would rather swerve the 30% pay increase and play in France or Spain with a chilled life and sun. It's sad but I genuinely think a lot of players at that stage in their career become bored with football and just see it as graft

100% some players would want the sun and lifestyle of spain/portugal/italy over the blood and thunder premier league

I’m putting £20 on Darwin Nunez to be top scorer this season and to break Salah’s record.

If I was a Shitty fan I’d be doing the same for that Lord of the Rings looking cunt too.

Can’t wait for the season to start Ubercool

even if ten Hag is a hit (big question mark), this squad is fighting for its life to finish 5th. midfield of fred mctominay and fernandes/eriksen? sancho rashford and martial up top? de gea in goal? mama mia

de jong would be great but he quite rightly doesn't fancy it, and even if he does come i struggle to see him turning the side around that much

10 years on and +1bn spent to be at your lowest ebb is hilariously bad management

Well when you put it like that..

If we get De Jong and Antony it looks like a good summer to me. Sancho looks different gravy and hopefully Bruno will be back on form if Cristiano doesn't come back (in b4 the cr7 jokes). Ten Hag doesn't actually give a fuck which is what all these young players need to be honest, early days but they actually seem to respect and like him.

The Maguire/Varane/Martinez situation is a little strange to me. But it looks like we finally have squad depth of playable players and not just names for once

My prediction is first and an fa cup

I don't disagree, if it was any other manager I'd back swerving the transfer but I'm sure he'll smooth things over if he gets here

I read it as first in Europa League group. Could only mean that.
