Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Hilarious.

Cry poverty and then bid €160m for a player in the last year of his contract.

What would you do in PSG's position?  It's a lot of money for a player who has basically told you he's off next summer.

You've still got Messi and neymar, you'd have to take it.

It's a tricky one isn't it though?  One season of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar to try and win the Champions League, or €160m into the club to be spent elsewhere or simply help with any potential FFP issues.  Have you got more chance of winning it with him or without him, and how much do you want to win it?  I really don't know what I'd do in their position.

Take the money and bring in Ronaldo for the ultimate marketing campaign.

The two best players of a generation in the same team for a season.

€28m to buy out his contract, then obviously you'd have to cover the ridiculous wages.

But there'd be millions to be made just from having them both.

There'd be €100m to spare from the Mbappe sale too.

Well the sane person would take the money, but then again PSG's owner have grown up not knowing the value of money so they probably don't care either way. It's absolutely ludicrous if they don't take that deal and his contract runs out. As long as they are not tested on a weekly basis I don't think they will win the Champions League anyway. Christ their overpaid monstersquad couldn't even win the domestic league last season. When the players don't come for the challenge you will most likely be turned over by the other big clubs from bigger leagues. It's the same with Celtic and Rangers albeit on a lesser scale.

Harry Kane is staying at Spurs, Levy hasn't buckled.

Disappointed for him personally, but hopefully he still has a good season.

Yeah I'm crying for him. That 90 million pound contract is like a nuse around his neck 😉 Maybe he should have thought about it before signing a 6 year contract.

Obviously he's going to have a life a luxury whatever happens, but he's a brilliant striker and I think it'll be a shame for him to end his career without a proper trophy.

I might be wrong but I honestly feel like this is as much about decisions made by other clubs this summer as much as Levy's insistence, if not more. I reckon they would have sold and sold for a good price but the interested clubs have already pretty much made their moves in this window and spent a great deal of money. Chelsea brought in Lukaku to fill the gap in their frontline, City and United have both spent £100m+ on improvements elsewhere and abroad Madrid are stumping up big money for a younger player. I don't really know where else he could have realistically gone this summer that would have offered him what he wants.

How are other people seeing this?

In my mind, I actually think we're right not to change the quarantine rules for players. What makes them more special than the rest of us?

I do feel for the players not getting the chance to represent their countries in this regard but this is a public health matter, not a sporting matter.
