Well he's signed, so something is making him happy enough to stay.

As for the hotel thing, he's explained that.

Exactly. He’s not living in a hotel room, it’s an apartment in the hotel. Makes sense if you can afford it, and he clearly can.

Coco Chanel lived in the Ritz Hotel in Paris for 37 years.

They make it sound like he's in a Travel Lodge, like a Portuguese Alan Partridge.

Right, that's all sorted then....City, Chelsea, Sky & BT are all to blame for football's financial obscenities

...anyone watching tonight...Sanchez looking lively.

Agreed. I think he's the most likely to suffer from Sanchez arriving, even though he's been the liveliest this season.

People will say "It's only Yeovil" but for once we didn't make it look awkward.

Yeovil were little fighters, playing above their position. Good luck to them. Good goal by Rashford, just not giving up on a possible lost ball, & Lingard with a great goal. Sanchez caused them trouble all the time he was on.

Now Pep wants to shell out $60m plus for Mahrez. He's so full of ****, that man.

In it's current guise, probably, as there's no legal basis for it.
But apparently, in yet another piece of UEFA goal post-shiftery, there's a new version going to be put to the vote this summer. It might affect most PL club because regardless of club income, you won't be allowed to be more than Ł90M down on transfers per season.

Nothing will happen until they finish counting their backhanders, & that will take quite some time.

We're really slow to move the ball on. Can't see this getting any better.
