Regarding squad unity and feeling, I’ve got the impression that the squad feel pretty happy tbh.
Maybe for the moment. Matt Ritchie comments today were interesting, doesnt seem to understand the protests. Wonder if the boycott will upset the unity (not to say that should stop people)
Not sure why Ritchie said that as the players weren't being paid bonuses last season and their trip to las Vegas was a piss take on Ashley's part 🤔

The comments about Rafa not saying a lot was from shelvey and he's a bit of a tool so I didn't read too much into it 😂

The players were the ones that chose not to do a group trip to Vegas at the end of the season (at that point, at their richness, I'd probably plan my own vacation over a club sponsored one too). Though I'm sure Ashley was cool with dismissing it too.

I think we'll be ok. Bottom to mid-table finish.
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

I've the strangest feeling we're gonna have a blinding season and I can't justify it.

6th - 7th place finish.

Build it, and they will come <whistle>

I'm guessing mid table.

Big season for some players.

Joelinton - needs to hit the ground running & justify the huge price tag.
Lascelles - Captain slumped a bit last season & needs to up his game again (5 live podcast Dubravka said some players expected to play week in week out under Rafa & standards slipped - I'm guessing Lascelles is included in that)
Ritchie - as above
Longstaff - good 2nd half of last season, would really like him kick on this year
Almiron - was decent after joining in January but needs to start getting goals
Carroll - he's got nothing to lose, hoping without pressure he can get/stay fit. Everyone saying he'll be a decent sub but imagine if stays fit & finds his form of old, he used to be unplayable at times. It's unlikely granted, but imagine.
And in conclusion, how far had you got through reading this before you realised it was my signature?

It’s not a huge fee for joelinton now tho, it’s the going rate for a striker.

Re: Ritchie I don’t think he slumped, he created a s*** load of chances and performed and important role at both ends of the pitch last season imo and was a key player for us.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

£40M not pocket change & nigh on double our transfer record. For that sort of money I'm expecting a decent return.
