Honestly this just gets overplayed. City and Liverpool are well run clubs and will address this going forward.
supposed… but no guarantee
I’m a lot more confident in City doing it than Liverpool. City have fewer older players, a few pre-prime that are already huge stars, and a bottomless pit of money to spend. Liverpool in the past few years have signed players that are generally good but not quite as good as the players they are replacing, and if they completely miss on a big transfer (like they may have with Nunez, a little early to write him off obviously) it actually hurts.
There’s loads of things though that can happen. Lets not forget our age limits down but we are carrying kids who won’t be getting much time this season.
We are actually under staffed going into Christmas at the very least.
Demographic wise we look good bar coming towards the end of a peak at the CM position.
No sure things in sport with how that’ll translate though, especially in a sport that the top clubs can spend whatever they want and aren’t restricted by drafts and salary caps.
Hopefully it works out for us and we have a window of opportunity in 2-3 years though.
