The sentence was conveniently under 2 years, despite it being fraud worth millions, so he won't even go to jail. Nor his Dad. How do Barca players keep getting in this mess though? Neymar has a similar case rumbling on which sounds way more complicated. Mascherano and Dani Alves have also had tax issues. Pay your bills, you rich tossers.

 

Middlesbrough have just signed Victor Valdes, and are supposedly in for Subotic and Van Persie. Awesome.

Premier League this season is going to be nuts. That telly money is just stupid. Watford have turned down a £30m bid for Deeney and a £40m for Igahlo, because they just don't need the money, because TV money. Palace are making £30m bids for players. It was only about 5 years ago that £30m was the PL transfer record, now everyone in the league can lob £30m at anyone.

Pogba will probably break the world record fee this summer, either by Madrid or United. Which is mad, because whilst he's good, he's just not that good. Capable of the spectacular, but he doesn't totally boss a game, like Kroos and Modric can, who Madrid already have, and both are better than him at what they do. They'll be worsening their midfield by forcing him in to it.

Couldn't agree more about Pogba, he's great at surging forward and creating a bit of solo brilliance but he's not the great team player capable of getting stuck in one moment and then dictating the tempo of the game the next like Kroos and Modric (I'd also say a fit Schweinsteiger is better as well).

Agreed. He definitely wouldn't improve Madrid, though he'd probably improve United's midfield - because Fellaini and Rooney are a part of it - but not to the tune of £100m,

If Juventus lose Pogba, they've already improved on him with Pjanic IMO. Pjanic is class and has a bit of both Kroos and Modric about him. He'll be a better free-roaming centre mid for Juve than Pogba, and be more of a team player as well. If Juve manage to get £100m out of a club stupid enough to pay it - and clubs don't come financially stupider than Madrid and United - whilst getting Pjanic for a fraction of the price, they'll be laughing.

Valdes in with Subotic and Negredo supposedly on their way in the next couple of days. It's like 1996/97 all over again with Grant Leadbitter as Robbie Mustoe.

They are just an exhibition team. Looks like a heap of nonsense but it is interesting the way they are getting social media involved. Something I feel a lot of Football clubs are still lacking behind just a small bit.

The name is terrible though.

Did you mean to post in the old 2015/2016 thread?
