It's all pretty f***ing boring really. 100 mil plus striker scores goals shocker. Team that has several 100 mil players win league. Pep genius etc. How does bollocks sound?

He "only" cost them 53m, which compared to Nunez at Liverpool (85m) and Isak at Newcastle (60m) seems a bargain!

Regardless of who he plays for or how much he cost he is nonetheless a physical freak of nature being both strong and big but also quick and agile. The commentator was saying that if he continues at his current rate he'll bag 70 goals for the season...it would be so funny to see that. If what you read is true though he'll only be here for two seasons before heading off to destroy La Liga with Real.

Cyberdine Systems T-1000 ...the Skynet 'Aurora Borealis' model

6'5"

Delivered anytime by DHL , shipped with matching eyes & shirt colour.

Capable of shooting from 5 yards in the box, or an Uzi 9mm.

Familiar with the controls of a Harley Davidson, an Apache Strike attack helicopter and the offside rule.

Not to be confused with the slower 'Universal Soldier' Dolph Lungren model.

Yeah but Palace can't afford that model so we went for the cheap Chinese knockoff. As he is battery powered he only last 60 minutes and any physical contact means the system needs to be re-booted. His default position is to run around pointing and waving his arms I believe this is called Puncheon mode.

At the Leeds game yesterday I mentioned to a gentleman that Haaland was born in Leeds and he gave me a rather quizzical look.I mentioned that his father had been ploughing his furrow for Leeds after joining them from Nottm Forest.

Undoubtedly, he's a brilliant player. You can't blame a team for wanting him. It just does seem a bit of a financial mismatch when you see teams like Bournemouth or Palace playing Man City - which starts to leave a bit of a sour taste sometimes. We risk having a PSG or Real Madrid in English football.
I guess Man U will have to find Keane junior.

He had a poor game yesterday. Just the one goal. Can see him getting dropped at this rate.

(when they come to SP very hopefully)

 


I have now sufficient funds to last me the rest of my life. Provided I don't buy anything.

I think we're already there with City and that was evident from very early doors, they have almost lost an identity as a club for me and now stand as some sort of corporation if you like. United close to that but not quite for a very long time and Chelsea did emulate this genre for a while but have slightly dropped off since - they seemingly batted no eye lids in spending a vast fortune on Cucurella... a left back. Personally, I would not enjoy this at Palace. The experience and kinship I feel with fellow fans, often nicely played out on this site, is just one facet I would fear losing should a consortium of multi, multi-billionaires take over.

As for Haaland, he is a fantastic player no doubt, a 'stars have aligned for his creation' type. I wish him the best of luck bar games against Palace and am genuinely enthused when watching him play. Will be interesting to see just how far his star rises. A long career should see him pass Ronaldo and Messi's ludicrous goal totals alongside an abundance of personal and club accolades. Doubtful he'll ever see glory with Norway however the real question is will he bring the CL to City? I'd suggest probably however not guaranteed and that may come with it's own ramifications!

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Vincent Kompany was them going Corporate.

Haaland is evidence that Harry Maguire has no excuse.

Even a big lump can be fast and show guile.

 


7 points from Manchester last season

A lot of truth there.

A pet peeve of mine is defenders, mainly centre-backs, who are given leeway for being unathletic due to their size. Just to emphasize this point: Isn't the fastest man ever, ol' Usain, 6 ft 3??? He may not be but I thought he was. Same height as Scott Dann I think??? If that's all wrong I'll look quite the fool now... more so than usual!

Wiki has Bolt at 6'5".
Basketball players seem quite athletic.
There was an interview with Kanu when he was at Arsenal in which he was congratulated on his skillfulness for "a big man" his answer was that he learned to play when he was small and got big later.
