    I wouldn’t hate Mandzukic, but I also wouldn’t be remotely upset if he didn’t come.

    That said, I’d still be all over Lukaku+30m for Dybala, so obviously throwing in an extra asset wouldn’t hurt.

    I think as a rotation options Mandzu would be a great option. Smart player, brings a different element while still being pretty versatile and is a big match player. But I wouldn’t be bothered either way if he came in the deal or not.

    There is a health crisis for fat linesmen in the NFL, studies have come out showing they're living shorter lives than NFL players in other positions.

    I deem it more of a sport due to the contact/physicality involved, but I actually feel more sorry for those players because they gotta be fat to make a living. If they lost weight, they would be cut and their only source of income to keep their family secure for generations would be lost. Being fat in golf has no intrinsic value whatsoever except their lifestyle and lack of athleticism makes them fat.

    And fat people play soccer, as well. Fat people play every sport. It doesn't mean they are good or represent that sport to the wider sporting audience. Like soccer, there are almost no fat golfers who are remotely good professional level players.

    You seem to have a very warped idea of golf.

    What fat people are at the peak of the golf game? But yeah, Luke Shaw had a decent season and Rooney wasn’t half bad.

    I guess it all comes down to the physical activity part of it, golf doesn't require much, just like snooker, curling or archery.

    Comparing them to much more physical sports is pointless, they are just different

    Fat people in baseball that perform well. But it's true that in football being fat just destroys your knees. Just need to look at Ronaldo.

    Golf isn't anymore a sport than lawn bowling IMO. Fun game though. Walk around, take a few swingsand have some good chats.

    Golf is a sport, but why are we even discussing that here, I'd rather bring back the Arsenal vs Tottenham discussion.

    Other people think that's way too much for Maguire, even with the English tax factored in, right?

    It's kicker, pretty old-fashioned and slow source and it's in German.
    Guardiola über Sané: "Jetzt ist die Lage ein wenig anders" | Bundesliga - kicker

    In short Pep says he only wants to work with players who really want to be at City. And he's not sure Sane is one of these guys.
    Personally I think Sane will go to Bayern and it it will cost them. More than the reported 100m euros.
    I also think this (probable) transfer is the reason why Hoeness doesn't want to be president of the club in the future.

    Malcom to Zenit is official, 40M+5M, Barça also retains a percentage of a future sale.

    Yup. It’s 30 mil too much for a player that’s good but will never be great.

    Everyone thinks it's too much.

    Seems the price has dropped already:



    2009: £80m for Cristiano Ronaldo.
    2019: £80m for Harry Maguire.

    Harry Maguire and world record fee, that's an interesting combination.
