Re: Paul Pogba salary demands

No-one is forcing the clubs to pay him that much. If they pay it it's because they think he's worth it. If he isn't then they won't. Yes that's true of course, however the problem is if the big guns like KDB and PP get huge salaries it means that a lot of average players also earn big bucks, just l...

For anyone still harbouring thoughts that we could be relegated, put £20 on our relegation. A £1000 return would soften the blow.

Re: Mourinho in at Roma

Lands on his feet because he has a history of winning silverware Didn't win owt at Spurs though did he, and Roma are 7th in Serie A which is roughly about where Spurs sit in the PL, so he faces a big challenge to get them challenging for the title next season, which I assume is why he's been hired.
