I am actually stunned

I really rate Krov, I think he could be our BEST player in the prem.....but no where on earth should any football team ever sign a player costing millions, to keep his mate happy.
I don't think its that simple.
If we are building the team around one special player, then it doesn't make alot of sense to have him surrounded by players who are on a different wavelength. i.e who don't anticipate what to do when he has the ball. Some players do that instinctively and others just don't have it. Secondly, you don't know what factors go through a player's head in deciding whether to commit to a club. Having good mate(s) there may play an important role, especially in a foreign culture.
But I agree,  there comes a point where the cost is too much to bring in a player in a supporting role.

The biggest reason to resign Krovinovic is to keep Pereira happy in my eyes. It is clear they have formed a real friendship and I do worry how he will react if he doesn’t have Krov back here with him. I’ve always heard reports from journalists like Tim Vickery that Brazilians can get very cliquey with other Portuguese speakers and also very homesick in foreign squads. You have to get the environment just right. That might be a bit unfair, because Brazilian footballers are near enough the biggest export in the world game, but baring in mind he did have a reputation of being challenging for coaches before coming here, I hope we don’t lose a part of him by losing Krov and Diangana.

Ex Stokie Choupo-Moting wins it for Paris SG. Feel sorry for Atalanta who played incredible for most of the game.

Enjoying watching Atalanta. Deservedly 1-0 up v Paris.   Paris look like a one man team (Neymar).

Terry on the move?


Terry might have said he’ll be looking for a leading role this season, so yeah could be some succession planning

Netherlands Women’s manager Sarina Wiegman in advanced talks to succeed Phil Neville as England Women’s Head Coach.

There are tons of good English coaches in the super league, not really sure why we need to look abroad.
