    Why didn't Arsenal just bring Salibos straight away.

    It was part of the deal. Will help his development long term anyway

    Did you get him cheaper than if he came this year? Seems you really could’ve done with him immediately with the state of your defence atm.

    Was the only way to get it done. Was the main condition set out from the start. But yes also it meant the payment is structured.

    Ah that’s fair enough. Sounds like he’s a big talent but it’s going to be a massive ask for him to come in next year as a 19 year old and sort out the defence.

    To be honest I wouldn't have wanted him to come in this season to this team. Would have been too much pressure on him and itll be detrimental.

    Next year we should have a more settled defense.

    Oblak's 100th clean sheet for Atletico Madrid came in just his 178th appearance for them.

    That's some achievement !

    AM really have a good eye for a keeper, every time they sell one.. the next one is just as good / better.

    You could argue that he would’ve had less pressure this year behind two experienced defenders and then taking over next year.

    Now he’s being built up to be the savour of your defence next year. Pressure will be far higher now I think. Guessing you guys will be buying another CB in the summer though so that should help.

    They seem to do this at every position. Incredibly well run scouting department. This Torres -> Aguero -> Falcao -> Costa -> Griezzy -> Felix run is insane.

    Yep their scouting team must be one of the best run around.
    As mentioned above world class strikers just come in one after the other and they don't usually pay much money for the either other than Felix

    Can you even fill up the bench at this rate? :joy:
    Not even the worst of Juve's notorious injury epidemics were this bad. :D
    What the hell is causing this ridiculous number of injuries?

    In Marcelo's case I'd argue it has to do with the fact that he eats unhealthy? Dude doesn't look athletic'ish fit if that's a word.

    De Gea new contract until 2023, let me guess he's getting paid 350k+ a week?

    For every falcao and felix theres a jackson martinez, mandzukic, gameiro, vietto, correa, costa (v2), cerci, gaitan, vitolo etc


    They throw **** at the wall until it eventually sticks, not some super top level scouts.

    Every club misses on transfers but they’ve had bigger hits than misses. They’ve had at least one world class forward in their team since 2006, says it all really.
