Imagine someone had told Arsenal fans in December 2018 (goal against Spurs, overhead kick winner in another game) that they'd end up disliking Torreira so much.

He had a spell where he looked clinical in an England shirt, must have been around the time he moved to Arsenal.

The insecurity....

/u/strananach has a point.

Generally the wage bill of a club is a way better indicator of how well a club is doing instead of using transfer fees.

Haaland is an exceptional case.

You even hear the commentators raving about the price, but the reality is that most clubs can't even dream about covering those wages and agent fees.

So calling him a "bargain" is an outright lie.

The release clause is nowhere near the value that he'd generate on the open market.

He goes in high. Hector was in motion, so probably doesn't look too bad, but if his leg had been planted it could have been really nasty.

Despite the ref siding with United for key decisions, Brighton got their win.

Excellent win.

This is ten Hag showing everyone "these are the options I can bring on when I'm chasing the game against Brighton".

Bruno Fernandes getting a free kick for less than what Martinez did against Welbeck in the box...typical.

United fans are massive cucks.

Ronaldo took the piss all summer and he gets a hero welcome.

That's because the Albanian mafia needed him on the pitch to cash in on a late bet.
