@Ericali seems like a control issue to me. Not wanting to let go of power somewhere. That's why I think Mourinho started his demise intentionally in order to get sacked. Let's faria go, (to protect his friend) rubs everybody's backs up so it shows in the results. He made quite a few quotes about the hierarchy higher up not getting the players he wanted.
@dannypea I agree. I live in Chesterfield,I follow them to a degree and it was such a Shame for them after poor management and investment,especially after the new ground! Puts most of the other grounds to shame in the football league and also the attendances! Fair play to Salford though for their dream!
@Ericali It feels like one if not two of the three players will defo move from Barca, this being Malcom, Dembelle or Countinho but think Countinho has one more season in him. That saying it won't stop the stories. You only have to see how many players Chelsea are linked with and they can't even buy anyone (unless the ban gets revoked which I doubt).
Ozil looks the obvious one ... shame really as he is a sneaky media buzz magnet so would like to buy but too risky. Sanshez has all the signs of a China bound player as well - motivated by money and on his way down as a player.
@Ericali Well no-one is buying because they are putting their money in from instant selling lower valued players, I've seen loads of them go to market, it doesn't mean they have stopped putting in at the top forever. In the past the price of my top players have started to climb again (although I've not been here all that long and the market feels different now). The share prices of my top players have crept up a few pence today. People are just taking them off the market as they realise the value in them is more inherent than "hype" players or because the hype players are becoming too expensive for the risk.
