    My biggest mentor is myself because I've had to study, so that's been my biggest influence.

    We f**ked up on Van Dijk. I think if that pans out, we look at this window more fondly.

    Massively believe this squad is going places.

    Worth pointing out too that -

    City didn't get Sanchez.
    Arsenal didn't get Lemar and lost AoC.
    Chelsea had a piss-poor window.
    United didn't get Perisic.
    Tottenham had an average window.

    AoC took a pay-cut to come to us over Chelsea, Lemar apparently said he'd rather come to us, Van Dijk wanted to come to us over Chelsea and City, Keita committed to us when he'd have had serious options next summer.

    Think things are okay.
    What "saved us" wave? Only morons with no understanding of the business world would ever claim they "saved us".

    So they didn't save the club from going into administration?
    We all know the reasons why they bought the club mind

    All sounds sensible until you look at what actually transpired under H&G... When you OBSERVE closely - you will see that relative to player price - we are looking at a very similar scenario under FSG>

    Sadly I predicted this!
