    I hope our idiots take a lesson.
    Have you been paying attention to Bayern this year? They are hardly setting the example like they did in seasons past.

    Lewandowski coming out slamming the very transfer policy you are lauding them for.

    Rumeniegge coming out and slamming him saying he still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. Overall confusion as some other officials in the club say what Robert said was fine.

    Ancelotti is already in hot water and there are rumors he will be fired this summer at the latest. Muller stoking the flames by saying he doesn't understand why he's not in the team.

    It's not all sunshine and butterflies at FC Hollywood right now.

    And Bayern's spending has more to do with them raping internal teams of their talents vs buying internationally. And they're like the mafia in Germany. They miraculously almost always have "leverage" in negotiations for other teams' players; the player wants to play there and/or contract expiring.

    Roberto Mancini was a coach when I first time watched Inter game live and I wanted to leave stadium after 60 minutes even I've spent a lot of money to be there

    There is no step down from R.Mancini, no way.

    Every team goes through a bad period every now and then. But generally speaking they are a very well-run team.

    Well run club, you mean. I agree on that part, and also agree that being the only rich club in Germany helps for leverage.

    Yes, they do get the best players inside Germany but that's hardly their fault. What are they supposed to do if the players themselves want to join them?

    They do buy internationally on rare occasions but when they do they make sure it's the right player. Coman, Vidal, Robben, Ribery, Thiago, Costa, James, Tolisso.

    But generally speaking, yea, most of the German players wanting to join them gives them a huge advantage. But they as a club do their part too by being well-organized and spending wisely.

    I agree. Bayern have monopoly on German market unless someone from other league seriously fights for the same player by paying huge money. For example when the player is in last year contract Bayern just tap him up and ask him to run down the contract to join them and players do likewise.

    Now they are signing Goretzka with a similar tactic. To add to that Germany produces shit loads of quality players. What Bayern do in Bungesliga, no team can do that in any other league.

    They are already doing it.

    They got Higuain, they got Bernardeschi, they could've gotten Schick or Keita if they wanted to. Rival teams's established stars, up and coming players, whatever they please.
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. It’s never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. It’s a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    I'll add Pjanic. Asamoah and Isla also (both were from Udinese which ended up 3rd in the league that previous season). They got Hernanes and De Sciglio from rivals, too but I'm sure both fanbases were rather happy to see them go. This is why Bonucci leaving for a rival was very sweet You shouldn't be able to pull this shit in Italy. Passing the Matris and Pazzinis is one thing.

    Bayern is the kinda club Rube dreams to be. I don't think even they can have full control of the league (without bribing ) as Bayern. I mean, seriously, getting Lewandowski on a free transfer? That's unreal!

    That's what poor man-management will do.

    I also hear Atletico will pay around £57m. Where the fuck did they get the money?
