    Yeah that's basically what I meant.

    Chelsea need small tinkering to the squad, find they won't come cheap but it's not an overhaul.

    I see £1b spend. Leicester with potential CL money is another thing to consider too. City or United are likely to be the biggest spenders in the transfer window though.
    I don't think Leicester will overstretch themselves. A lot of their players will want new contracts and if they finish 4th then they might not even get through the qualifying round.

    I can see:

    Man City - 150mil
    Man Utd - 150mil
    Chelsea - 50-100mil
    Liverpool - 100mil
    Arsenal - 50mil
    Spurs - 50mil

    That alone would be 600mil and the other 14 clubs would easily make up 400mil+

    Going to be crazy..

    lol'd at Arsenal spending £50mill

    we wont spend more than £15 mill (some unknown Homegrown wünderkid), and will unveil Chuba, Hayden, Zelalem as the returning prodigal sons.

    we cant lure big players. we can only wait for them to be forced out and then pounce on them.

    Bale -> Madrid was nailed on. So Ozil/ Di Maria were gunna be forced out

    Suarez -> Barca was nailed on. So Alexis/ Pedro were gunna be forced out.

    Madrid wont be getting rid of anyone because of their upcoming transfer ban, and with Barca only being in the market for a CB and LB, there is no one for us to pounce on.

    Arsenal will not sign a demi galactico this summer.

    inb4 Harry Kane -> Madrid. Benzema -> Arsenal

    perhaps if Lukaku moved he could start a chain of events, but he doesn't have the technical quality for a top club yet. He's just a mandingo

    I can see us spending more than 100m depending on our sales though.

    Next season will be really interesting because City/United/Liverpool/Chelsea will all have managers starting their first full season.
    Klopp relishes being the underdog like Dortmund were against Bayern so who knows what he can do here?

    Lovren, Can and Henderson have been really poor so far.

    Mignolet has been good and confident but the worry is that he's only one mistake away from crumbling entirely.

    We have been a few steps away from even competing tbh. Probably need a couple of seasons in the top 4 before we can think about another title challenge.

    ..
    That looks like at least another 5 seasons tbh. Unbelievable FSG vision really.

    Can has done pretty much everything wrong in this game.
    Every chance seems to fall to him.
