The main mistake was being in the Europa League in the first place, after that the mistake was not putting an average Villareal team to bed in normal time.
Penalties just threw the winning of the game down to a random mistake.

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Anyone believing these rumours with Ronaldo?

Sounds to me like a bit of a smoke screen already for a challenging window. Any club would take him without hesitation with his record, but just doesn't ring true for me.

If we didn’t have Cavani then maybe. At his age, on his wages it doesn’t make sense. Having said all that, I’d absolutely love to have him!

Utd are building! If Utd were built/settled like when they took Larsson on loan then Ronaldo would be a good idea. Utd have enough problems without adding nostalgia to the mix.

I don't believe any rumours about transfers, until they're fully confirmed anymore.

To me its the same thing with Kane, IMO for the money they are looking (for Kane) I would be tapping up Haaland for whenever they could get him and spend then money there. Build a team around him for the next 5 years.

That's assuming that Dortmund would even listen to offers for him. But to me he would be number one target.

But Utd's "The biggest club in the world" . . . apparently!

Now that FFP rules have been kicked into the dungheap City can outbid any club on anyone without fear of repercussion.

This is twice I've read this. Got this from the Guardian:

Uefa has begun consultation on how to reform FFP, with Traverso saying he expected an “expedited but careful” process to be completed by the end of the year. “Those that are saying that the rules will be abandoned or relaxed are just speculating,” Traverso said. “Rules can be different, sure, but this does not necessarily mean that the rules will be less stringent. On the contrary, when severe situations occur often those necessitate stronger measures.”

Anything more upto date re FFP? I'm assuming FFP pre Covid is still in place until the changes are implemented?

Well City spent millions upon millions, were investigated and got a slap on the wrist if you could even call it that. FFP is dead.
