    Days like these

    Whilst they won't become a thing of the past totally, they'll certainly happen less and less.

    Like Kal says, we need patience-a lot of it whilst the owners, manager and team get it right.

    But defeats like today's? Well, the path we're on, we'll be the ones doing that to other teams eventually. We've got owners whose stated aim is to place us among the best in the world. Said it before, but it still doesn't seem real and we need to keep days like this in our memory and remember where we've come from.

    Onwaaaaaaaards!!

    Citeh and Liverpool can stuff any team in the world.

    We did well against Liverpool. Citeh could have hit us for 2 or 3 more with a proper front man. They're frightening. And De Bruyne is like a force of nature... Not overhyped at all.

    One day soon we will have players like that.

    Imagine if City had Haaland playing today...it would have been double figures

    We need to put quality players around Bruno quick smart or he'll get his head turned by bigger clubs

    Was just thinking the same thing about Bruno.How long do we think he will be prepared to wait, to be playing in a team like City? Listening to the match,he didnít seem as involved as normal? Next season we need to be challenging for a top 6 spot, in an ideal world that is, not sure if thatís the blueprint Eddieís working on though. The way heís talking seems it will be longer project, in which case I donít think Bruno would hang around. Bring on the summer!

    As regards what Eddie Howe is saying, I think he's playing it just right. If he came out and made bold predictions about our aims for the season ahead, he'd be setting us-and himself-up for a fall. Far better to dream big (as I'm sure he and the players are in private) but speak as he is doing.

    I remain concerned about our budget.

    Although everyone thinks we are going to splash the cash, I'm not so sure. I have a feeling it's going to be 2 or 3 per window.

    FFP has locked in the spending patterns and abilities of the Super League clubs so it is incredibly difficult for newly minted clubs like ours to actually use the funds at their disposal; all while Man Yoo, Chelsea, Barca and Real Madrid each ride a billion pound/euro mountain of debt.

    Does everyone think that? I donít.

    As well as the financial rules restraint you canít replace half a team in one window and reasonably expect a big and immediate improvement. That would be a dangerous course of action and one which Howe wonít take.

    Agreed.

    We're already going to be charged a premium on any player, add in use saying we could spend loads and the prices go up even further.

    Two or three a window would be a steady way of improving. That's an entirely new team over two seasons.
