    Our squad, even without any change, is good enough to be somewhat competitive for the next 2 seasons at least - this is good enough for them.
    You think players wants to play in a club that are satisfied with quarter finals? So we will waste 2 years of iniestas career, who is already close to his 30s. Messi isnt getting any younger either.

    Exactly. You reinforce the squad with a new GK (required regardless), world-class CB (Bartra a part of 4 CB), a defensive LB and even one midfielder...we are realistically dominating European football again. Four players is more than I'd want to bring here in one year...but we should of taken care of some of that last summer or even the summer before (defensive leftback and CB).
    Pwn'ing no0bs since 1985.

    I did, we can and we do.

Right. And I still don't get why you think we have a bottomless pit of money to begin with. I mean, obviously we're a "rich" club compared to most others, but it's still not the same. It's disgusting how many players Chelsea have that they don't need just because they can spend, we would never be that kind of club.

    Keirisson,Hleb and Henrique say hi. Just on top of my head. 43 million right there minus wages.

    Just stop, I like the club because they play good football, the players they have/have had are great and I've been watching them for a long time.
    Isn't that enough? Why do our fans feel entitled to some imaginary moral high ground?
    Not only are we just like the other teams, we're actually worst because we are hypocrites.

    i kinda agree. all i know is that when other teams splash the cash they do it so to buy many players, anyways they buy smart. we? we buy poorly. the only good recent transfer was alba. neymar still has to prove himself. almost everyone wants sanchez and fabregas out. and alex song? really? heh.. unfortunately barca is the worst when it comes to transfers.

    Absolutely.

    I was just listing players we bought that either never played a game for us (Keirisson, Henrique) or well, Hleb lol. We were still paying his ages what? 4 years after he last played for us?
    If I was to list all the bad transfers then you'd make our transfer executives look like 12 year olds who found a cheat on FM.

    And for every David Silva there's a Roque Santa Cruz, for every Yaya Touré there's a Robinho. As if other clubs don't make bad signings let alone the plastic clubs like City & Chelski.

    That's not what I said. I said we're just as prone to making bad signing as other clubs.
    Again, there's NO difference between ''plastic'' clubs whatever that means and us. Find me 1 substantial difference (besides that we get most of our money from ads while they get most of their money from 2 guys).
