He uses too many exclamation marks, and for this reason I hate him

Whilst we do need signings in other positions - it's very important that our main stars up front never become comfortable with their 'right' to be automatic starters. Especially if we go on to win the league this season, these players will be etched in folklore.
We need a big signing in the attacking third.
Our front 3 need to be motivated/pressured and to be kept on their toes.
Salah's arrival was the perfect motivation for Mane's improvement - seeing Salah have a stellar season is what drove Mane to lift his game to the level we have witnessed last season and this season.
On the flip side, Salah has been good but he's not that killer player we saw 2 seasons ago, when the opposition would shit themselves at the sight of him on the ball.
We need a big signing to drive such players to increase their levels - there has to be genuine world class competition, none of our front 3 are going to have sleepless nights over Origi taking their starting spot (as much as I love Origi).
Strongest reports comes from the Bild and Star, not the most reliable of sources.
It's not just "motivation"; we need the ability to rotate and rest players, drop players when they are out of form, and we've also been quite lucky with injury.
It's one of the reasons City have been so strong (albeit not defensively) because they have so many top quality attacking players.
I didn't see any reports in German papers which suggest this.
Fjortoft himself is also backtracking.
Just this ... here which merely repeats rumours from the Mirror & Sun
So a non-story
All these rumours, it's almost like we have more than one potential target in mind for each position we want to strengthen and there's some truth to a few rumours even though we won't sign each and every player linked. Crazy, I know.
Mbappe is nailed on though
I'm not having that. You're just shit stirring because you are jealous you don't have an Austrian / German version of The Firm.
I like the way you protest your dislike, for the exclamation marks, with a total disregard for any punctuation at all to mark the end of your sentence. It's not quite the grammatical version of smearing shite all over your cell wall, but it is a stance. Bravo!!!!
You use too many commas, but I don't hate you
Every time I see the thread title, my brain reads it in George W's voice.
Oh, we do have. They're equally shit at least.
It's not the smartest strategy to buy strikers on a back of a career-best season.
We bought Salah and Sadio after arguably their career best seasons.
Almost everyone we have ever signed was bought after "career-best seasons".
That's why we bought them.
