    The biggest issue there is that some of the players get branded as flops because of the huge price tag and never recover. If you also consider the kind of wages at play and that fact that an agent practically won't allow you to take a deep cut unless your career is in ruins, it puts the players in a terrible spot.

    Arent most of these players youre thinking of on massive wages and insanley long contracts? They are set for life, whether they are any good or not.

    This went back to my original post. I said he was good in Madrid for a single season. Then, he flopped in Manchester United, My whole point was that Manchester United overpaid for him. That was it.

    But overall, I still think Di Maria has a good career.

    Honestly, I don't see any team other than Real Madrid beating Man City to repeat of the UCL. Do you? If so, who and why?

    Treble winning teams tend to lose motivation easily. I reckon theyde get c*cked in the quarter or semis by a well organized defensive team.

    Maybe Arsenal or Bayern with Kane, but I agree with what you said. All teams in Europe just seem to be below par at the moment, even us (because of the lack of a striker and Vini looking like he's going to have a mediocre season).

    It is important to stop Man City to repeat because Madrid should be the only team that own that record. Right now, I can only see Bayern or Real Madrid having any decent chance of stopping them.

    City dominates the EPL and is the current UCL champs. Ancelotti did not say anything outrageous.

    Milan are literlly obliterating Newcastle. Forget Newcatsle taking anything away from the QSG game. No way, they even threaten the goal.

    Didn't know Chukwueze transferred to Milan. We should probably stay away from a Milan draw then :D

    I am not watching the game but will check out highlights in the evening. I guess Milan would come out guns blazing after their derby result. Ibra was at their training and gave them a pep talk the other day. :D

    Still 0-0 tho.

    15 Milan shots to 1 from Newcastle, but the Rossoneri haven't capitalized. They need to put the English to pasture

    Jose Maria Sanchez reffing this game. At least one red card incoming. Calabria has already gotten one for dissent

    The game has become unwatchable now. Milan just passing the ball in their own half and hoofing to noone. Newcastle not threatening at all.

    Chukwueze the only one threatening. The rest aren't on his level.

    Leao's pressing is pathetic and he doesn't exert himself to get to 50-50 balls.

    Proper business model. It's inevitably going to pay itself back, just need patience

    Man City play now with Haaland and Alvarez as starters .. and our number 9 shirt is vacant. This is sad.
    How da hell Flo and JAS think we can win them after the 4-0. This is not fair for RM fans

    Joao Felix again

    He could be great for us in a loan like they did
