    Looks great on paper. However, when has the "XX is sorted for the next 10 years" ever worked in reality?

    If you can't be excited about this signing then what's the point in supporting the club?

    I sure am. But you have to be realistic.

    Looks like a good signing..Now if we can ship Busquets and Rakitic, it would be a job well done overall. Alternative would be to keep one of them but make it clear that they are a sub and not a main starter. But i am not entirely sure that would work with our current squad.

    Now that he has signed for us, he better not fuck up against Madrid in the upcoming UCL

    Considering his form over the past few years and possibly because he might be unbenchable using their seniority, it would be nice if we can transfer both..Sure why not? ..

    Or as i said a sub role for one of them, doesnt matter which one. Either way they should not be guaranteed starters.

    Our midfield were previously sorted for the next x years too when we had Xavi, Iniesta, Cesc, and Thiago. Just saying.
