Lazy journos adding on cost of wages etc!

I take back my previous reservations and it's an absolute bargain.  Alan Shearer:

Just hold fire and wait, end of next season after we win the PL again and more and Haaland has scored 32 goals Alan Shearer will be saying. Yes it’s a lot of goals but he’s really fallen short of what he could and should have achieved in this team, he needs to improve and do better next season.

Erling Haaland is the only player I have seen easily push Dias of the ball
Exited to say the least

Is anyone worried he won't fit in to our system? I think it's being over simplified to: top goal scorer + team creating lots of chances = many goals for said goal scorer. I worry it's over looking the nuanced interplay of our forward players and the potential for disruption of this.

Lukaku being the most recent example of this. Remember Chelsea were going to be unstoppable when in reality they were/are better without Lukaku.

Either way, it will be interesting and he won't lose value.

Also, if someone with the analytical incompetence of Anal Shearer thinks it will work, that cannot be good.

He won't fit into our system. The system needs to change. No team can play the same season after season. There's been numerous times this season where we have desperately needed something different. He has been bought as a new dimension. City will need to change and so will Haaland. Let's not forget Alvarez too. It is going to be another exciting season.

I don't rate him that highly, also very worried about his injury proneness. I do hope I am wrong however, as I am born and raised in the same city as him, and had several interactions with him. Even played against him when he was a wee lad or whatever you guys call it.

It's cool to have a guy from from here succeed and all, but mostly I want it because almost everyone here is moaning and bitching about him choosing city and supposedly the money. Everyone here and basically in all Norway supports the scum or scousers. It's all very tiring and funny when they moan. Entitled spoiled shits, but who cares when it's in Norway  :D

Mbappe has settled for a £100 million signing on fee and a million a game and a say so in club affairs, all to stay at the same club. As far as I can tell Haaland is somewhere around KDB wages. Very reasonable. I expect Haaland can depart to Madrid at some point as one of the terms.  Pep will make a success of it, I am certain and Haaland will improve because of it. Win, win.

Tebas and La Liga are having a right good skrike about Mbappe. Makes me laugh. They've never minded outbidding other teams themselves.

I'm already looking forward to the new season. It normally takes more than a month but the early signings of strikers has got me going already. The end to last season helped too of course. Looking forward to the fixtures tomorrow. If Erling is fit all season then we should be truly awesome.
