Some big surprises in there for me:
Liverpool spending more than Real, Atletico spending as much as they have.
I would suspect the vast majority of Everton’s spending would be in the last 3-4 years.
Dortmund being 20th and Bayern 19th when much of the narrative (as far as I was aware) has been that Bayern has been poaching their players (Goetze, Lewandowski perhaps he was on a free? and another couple of players) but they have only spent about 20 Million more.


#283

to be fair though, real did spend about 200million in 2009.


#284

We have sold some players in that time too that have bankrolled our spending. Torres (£50 Million), Suarez (£75 Million), Sterling (£49 Million), Coutinho (£140 Million) the biggest fees.


#285

When we first sold the little magician, I thought we would struggle a bit. Salah has been a revelation & we have (used that big coin) to further strengthen the squad. Has proven to be a wise sale in the end.


#286

The last few transfer periods have blown these figures out though. Once Neymar went spending 70m became the old 20m.


#287

Very ugly concussion for luke shaw against spain. Soccer is a sport that chronically lags behind others in relation to concussion.


#288

Liverpool make it 5 from 5, a 2-1 win at Wembley v Spurs. Scoreline flattered Tottenham, should’ve been 4 or 5 with all the chances. Lamela pulled one back for Spus in injury-time which set up a nervy last couple of minutes but in the end 3 well deserved points for the Reds.


#289

Well our season has completely flatlined.
That was a performance which lacked any zest about it whatsoever.
Don’t let the score line fool you - we were belted.
Liverpool were very good by the way.
Congrats to The Pool fans around here.

Need to get Hugo back in goal - dreadful from Vorm.


#290

Yep, very poor lackluster performance from Spurs. Disappointing after the first three wins.


#291

Yuck.


#292

I was out & about - drinking with mates in Tokyo, but had the game streaming live via my phone. I tried not to be rude, but I couldn’t stop glancing over at my phone. Agreed. The scoreline flattered the Spurs. We bossed them. Banked the 3 points & we carry on. Big month ahead. Go Reds!!!


#293

Chelsea looked very impressive in coming from behind to beat Cardiff 4-1. After trailing early, Eden Hazard put on a masterclass with a hat-trick. Bournemouth also very good in a 4-2 win over Leicester. Eddie Howe really has done an amazing job with that club.


#294

We ended mighty Watford’s undefeated start to the season. A really good first half followed up by absolute garbage in the second half and probably lucky to hold on


#295

De Gea ensured we kept all three points.

He was the only player who came back out of the dressing room at halftime I think.


#296

Wolves smashed Burnley last night although the scoreboard didn’t reflect it. Looking forward to ManU this week.

#298

Great article/interview with a couple of Wolves young Portuguese guns…


#299

Anyone watching?

Just switched it on now. Go Reds!
