Van den Berg
Adam Lewis
Brewster
Wilson
Kent
Woodburn

All eager to prove themselves we should be ok and it won't disturb the balance of the squad.

I'll be ok if we don't spend anything

Afraid I can't agree with you there Bo. I would assume we want to win the title in this coming season, however if our competitor who beat us to the title with a stronger squad last season has strengthened, while we decline, what does that say about our ambition?
Adding young potentials in our current situation, is more about moneymaking, than about taking on City for the title, I'm afraid. As things stand our best chance of the title this season is if city slip up and give it to us, personally I'd prefer to win it than be handed it.

Technically in a tight race it is usually a slip up somewhere that costs one or other team the title.

Had Brighton got a draw v City somehow that would have been a slip up by them.

Most on here would still have said City best team City best squad blah blah blah.

You get 97 points and everyone is looking to where it was lost. This season 4 weeks from kick off and everyone is getting the knives out already.

It's pathetic.

City have strengthened by one midfield player. This guy has to play pretty well before I could accept they have strengthened significantly.

Don't forget they have lost Kompany. That guy is worth 6 points a year in games he should have got sent off in alone.

Itís what the defeatist Liverpool fans do. We could make4 signings before the season starts and I bet theyíll still be fukking moaning.

As you said, City have made one signing and heís unproven. Who knows how good heíll be? Who can replace Company?

I want us to strengthen and think we do need to but all is not lost if we donít especially if for the first time in a long time we keep all our best players.

Spot on sir.

Have people forgotten already the fact that we won The Champions League last season.

Why not let Mr Klopp get on with his job and trust the man.

To say city have improved is a lie. They have brought back a left back. Who they will sell next season anyway.

Rodri no matter how good has to replace Fernandinho who was close to perfect last year.

Theyve also lost Kompany who is a massive influence.

Aguero and Silva are getting a bit older too.

We are not favorites to win the league. The only way we would win it is if man City don't. They're still the bench mark and have gotten nearly 200 points in 2 years.

Kompany didn't play a lot of games out of injury and City also slipped against Palace at home for example, if you call it slip. We won more games than them only just, scoring in the last minutes or so. City will probably get close to 100 pts again like in the last 2 seasons and yes they had/have a much better squad than ours despite having their best player De Bruyn out most of the season. We were lucky that our best players played a majority of games. Yes we can all hope but if we do not reinforce, no way we will win the league. Difficult to bet on a forum, but if possible I would be happy to bet a 100 quids, would you?

They lost against Palace and I think Leicester when Fernandinho was out as they didn't have a proper cover because they missed out on Jorginho. This is why they broke their record to buy Rodri, Pep knows what he is doing.
