    4 Neymars probably equal to the cost of our new stadium.. How ridiculous is that?

    And Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore? San Francisco had a huge run in the 80's when they had one of the greatest QB's & coaches of all time. Their franchise has not always but mostly been pretty poor both before and since. Boston is a bad example. The Patriots are basically the NFL version of Chelsea. The franchise was horrible and mostly irrelevant up until they hired the greatest coach of all time in 2000. Since then they've cheated their way to 5 titles in the past 17 years.
    Yes. And a salary cap too. It's always a level playing field. Los Angeles has mostly always been an NFL also ran despite multiple franchises playing in the second biggest market in the US.

    Anyways, fuck Barca. I'm glad they got screwed over by PSG. I think it's hilarious that they are now preying on the biggest clubs in the world and all they can do is throw a tantrum and cry about it. I can only hope PSG starts using their oil money to start preying on the big Premier League clubs. Sanchez and Hazard would look fantastic in their colors.

    The NFL has no competition though they can do what they like.



    On a side note if you want to read about one of trump's previous adventures, this is pretty funny in context of what is happening today.

    I do wonder just how likely it will be now for the big clubs go include release clauses in the contracts of their star players.

    The top Spanish clubs always have them in as a sort of insurance policy, they are so high against the current transfer market that they will not be met, but on a few occasions they have been.

    They'll probably just bump up the clauses on top players to £300m+ although struggling to see any players of that grade with enough years left in them to be worth it.

    Never mind that, you could get 6 and 2/3 Sissoko's for that... cheap at twice the price (y)


    (DL will even throw in the cloning machine...)

    Immense pressure on him now, he's got to put in some incredibly consistent performances to justify that fee.

    Yep, would say our front four are worth conservatively £400 mil.

    PSG President just said he expects Naymar to be worth £400M in 2 years. What ever way this is cut Ligue One is a massive step down from La Liga.

    To who? I know prices at inflating fast but that is ridiculous, IMO he is just trying to justify paying double the previous world record fee.

    It is absurd, but football jumped the shark a long time ago. The idea of paying a million pound for a guy to kick a football about is ridiculous, let alone paying him tens of thousands of pounds a week for the privelage of doing so.

    After that it's just a matter of degrees. In a world where someone as mediocre as Jesse Lingard is getting paid millions of pounds a year to be mediocre, is it really so outlandish that a genuinely great footballer is commanding a fee close to £200mill?

    in old money.

    fun fact, a British billion used to be 1 million x 1 million, but they decided it was too many numbers so changed it to the US version of 1000 million, coincidentally around the time of Trevor Francis (the late 17th century :cautious:)
