    In that case it's a shame Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham decided to go by 'Tammy' rather than make full use of the name he was blessed with.

    Thiago Alcantara apparently wants to leave Bayern to try a new league, he is also entering the last year of his contract.

    I seem to remember that was a good partnership at the start of the season when rudiger was injured. Tomori sees to be bottom of the pile now, or at least he did 2 hours ago

    Pretty typical of this season really

    Leicester have gone for pretty much a full strength starting 11

    I am happy with that team, I think itnis a good opportunity to keep/get everyone fit with rotation. No Jorginho, looks like his days may be numbered here. Particularly if young Billy has another good game.

    Hmm I don't get the impression he was as committed or 'one of us' as his geezer character would imply Wild celebrations after scoring against us at PSG. Moving to Arsenal. Falling out with at least one manager. The finger pointing on the pitch when he was clearly to blame. That being said great transfer overall, the fees received equal the fees paid out so he worked out as a free transfer. We definitely had all his best years and won some titles together. I don't necessarily have a negative view on him, just not as enamoured as some others.

    I thought Tammy was poor in that situation and made a bad run to the far post

    I see following Peps press conference, where he said he was prioritising their next game in the FA cup, City have rested absolutely nobody

    In a way us winning them the title makes it even more of a damp squib. They will be sat at home watching it on telly whatsapping each other, not even allowed to gather together to watch it. No great fanfare, nobody gets to score the goal that clinches them the title, then they lift the trophy in an empty stadium in a few days time and there's no parade.

    Best wishes to all that have been going through a rough time recently.

    The wages work out at just less than £175k per week, not sure where you got £450k from. I'd be interested to know the basis on which the agent's fee was 'confirmed'. Presumably you have to watch the podcast to find out and I cba. If Arsenal really paid Luiz's agent £6m to take him for one year then it doesn't sound like anything out of the ordinary anyway. That excerpt was taken from a very pro-Liverpool anti-Chelsea article on written on the bbc I believe, somebody posted it last week. If you did a similar break down on Van Dijk for example his total cost was probably close to £150m, agents fess and wages are a part of any transfer albeit yes they can ask for more when the transfer fee is pre determined. You could even do a breakdown for Gerrard or JT with all the wages and agents fees, and argue they cost x00m to their team over the course of their time there.

    The restriction is 8 players 22 or over can be loaned internationally. That still leaves a lot of room for players to be loaned within the UK. The international loans will probably be saved for the big money flops rather than used to send players to Vittesse

    Whats the deal with press conferences for the rest of the season? Couldn't find anything about there being one ahead of this, but I saw some clips from Jose doing an online one for spuds. With games nearly every day they can't all be done on the same day like they were before.
