Madrid's version of Tiki-Taka, with the almighty Isco at the head. ROFL.

 

What a sad Spain was that one.

Ingerland in the quarters. Not bad.

 

They are being cocky again, usually a good sign of hubris on their part.

I don't know anyone being cocky really. "it's coming home" is sarcastic BANTZ as the kids would say.

 

Heard Juventus have bid £88m for Ronaldo, Real would be stupid to turn that down at his age.

Even lightning strikes twice at times, Izzy

 

Good luck in the final mate.

It's too early to talk about final, Croats are very formidable opponents, but they do lack a WC striker...

 

 

Belgium - France should be quite tasty...

His remark about not spending that big on one player has come back to bite him in the arse twice in a year.

 

Oh well.

 

Still feel like we're an injury away on that front forward line to mount a full title challenge, but we should definitely be up there.

 

Carling cup win it is (or whatever it is called now)

Who gives a fuck about that comment really? If you look at our actual spends they aren't that much.

 

Coutinho basically bought Alisson and van Dijk.

I have stopped giving a shit about how much a club spends tbh. The biggest part of being a winning club is managing well the financial aspect. As long as financial fair rules are abided by, there is no problem.

The people constantly bringing up that Klopp quote randomly seem to be United and Chelsea fans.

 

Probably the same ones giving us shit last season for signing Robinson for basically free.

It's been a while.  Are you all ready for Milan to return as the king of football with our new hedge fund owners?

Everton are supposedly signing Richarlison for £50m today so I don't want to hear shit about how much we paid for anyone.

 

I sincerely hope it's some kind of money laundering scheme...

Hilarious Milan got European football by basically showing that UEFA didn't penalise City or PSG as heavily.

 

We got European football by qualifying on the pitch.

 

Also what you said isn't really true.  We were penalized so heavily because UEFA had zero faith in the Chinese ownership.  Their initial decision was based on that.  Right before the appeal, the hedge fund took over the club, kicked out the Chinese, and UEFA found we now have solid financial backing.

This is the kind of uplifting, romantic story that only the world of elite-level football can provide.
