Nothing happening but transfers football thread


#1861

That’s not bad, would pay off my debt.

I could genuinely off myself, sell the proceeds, and break even with the world.


#1862

Someone has got to sign William Carvalho at some point…


#1863

Lukaku’s gonna be your shortest player by the end of this window.


#1864

who else even is there? I’m still holding on for Fabinho, but I’m struggling to think of who else there is.


#1865

Til the end of the night


#1866

He’s strong, he’s fast, he’s fresh from the fight - all the attributes of a world class player.


#1867

dunno why preview didn’t load but “lol” at:

  1. St. Pauli for all their punk posturing really being pretty business savvy
  2. Stoke?! Fucking Stoke! Literally the last team I would have expected (well other than someone like Millwall I guess)
  3. This is the first official Germanic-English football relationship, would be interested to see what precedent this might set

It’s lazy to compare Suarez and Aguero, i think. Aguero’s a pure finisher, more similar to, say, Romario, Suarez is a complete attacker who makes and scores goals. I think you could argue that Suarez brings more to a team, in 15/16 he was probably the world’s best player, but he only had two good seasons here…and didn’t win a lot, bar the 13/14 title under Brentdan.

Stoke are bankrolled by Bet365 and have, i’d guess, the 6th or 7th highest net spend in English football. Weird one.


#1870

The Bundesliga Brewdog


#1871

Pretty much, my pitch to Brewdog when I get there will be “Why haven’t you gone to St. Pauli yet, morons”


#1872

Looks like Liverpool might have offered £70m for Naby Keita and £60m for Virgil van Dijk.

The Manchester clubs would get slaughtered for that.


#1873

Weird in that Stoke arguably could have gone bigger given their finances?

It is strange, the two clubs couldn’t be more different apart from (mostly) filling their stadium… but pretty much every German team from Bundesliga 2. does that, so why St. Pauli? Other than having the strongest brand in Germany arguably outside of Bayern?


#1874

LOL this will go well


#1875

Astra might have something to do with it


#1876

how so?


#1877

They have a close relationship with st Pauli


#1878

yes I know, what’s that got to do with Stoke?


#1879

OH you’re talking re: brewdog, sorry


#1880

Haha :joy::joy:

Couldn’t imagine brewdog doing it on a cold and wet Tuesday night tbf
