What is the best number?




It's December and Chelsea, City, and Liverpool are pulling away from the pack, the rest of the "big 8" are fighting for a fourth place trophy, and this is the last month before Newcastle go on an eye-watering spending spree that ultimately leads to a bottom half finish.

Newcastle will spend £250m on exactly the wrong type of player and will win zero games

don't get me wrong

the geordieposters are cool lads and I like them and their complete ambivalence to dying in natural disasters, but I want the final day MOTD to just be all of the days goals as a montage over an Embrace song, and then one full hour of people crying into their inflatable camels

and then the Saudis sell back to Mike Ashley at a loss because they don't want to own a Championship club

Brendan Rodgers posted:

He bought them some bad players too but this Steve Walsh quote is still funny:

"While I was at Everton, I offered them Andrew Robertson and Harry Maguire deals, when they were at Hull, and it was worth £20 million for the pair. Everton wouldn't take them.

"I had a deal done for Jonny Evans too before he came to Leicester, but again they wouldn't take him.

"Erling Haaland, the striker with Salzburg, I had him and his dad at the club with a deal done for €4 million. The club wouldn't back me."

At this point, I think it's Brands who has to answer for a lot of bad deals after Walsh's shenanigans.

And like others have said, I have the feeling that none of that fictional transfer stuff happened. I think some of Everton's board had experience with people like Moyes finding bargains so if Walsh couldn't convince the club to back him, maybe he wasn't very good at making a case.

The Saudis have already passed the fit and proper owners test, so it seems to me they could probably just buy another club or two for the amount of transfer fees they will be paying at Newcastle to keep them up

Things were looking rough there for Leeds but when you factor in the at least 40 goals a rejuvenated Bamford will score between now and the end of the season I think anything less than 4th or 5th and questions will need to be asked

Leeds Mod, any opinions on the San Frnacisco 49ers ownership stake? https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/59548311

I left SF a long rear end time ago, but moving to the new stadium they built in 2014 saw them go from pretty good to absolute trash. They had a good season last year but they're crap again and the papers are still writing about the cursed stadium as recently as last month. There's also a corner of the stadium that fans call the frying pan, where you get annihilated by the sun and everyone leaves blind and sunburned, maybe that's a plus in Yorkshire though?

Well Rafa seems happy the Brands has gone - I wonder if this will see an improvement in the transfer strategy - something along the lines of actually having a transfer strategy maybe?
