1/ The Donnarumma to PSG news is such a bewildering decision from Leonardo for obvious reasons, but once again - as I find myself doing it almost every season - I have to say it out loud:

It’s an absolute insult to Keylor Navas.
2/ I’m not even going to waste this thread with his resume to justify how good he is. Let’s be perfectly clear and keep it 100: Him being a brown Costa Rican is part of the reason cause you know damn well a white European doesn’t get treated with this type of disrespect.
3/ Yes, according to reports, Donnarumma’s arrival doesn’t mean his exit, but that doesn’t matter. Think of the message you’re sending to Navas. “Listen, thanks for what you’ve done so far but we want to spend a lot of money on another GK just cause we’re still not sure…”
4/ It’s in the same argumentative sphere why someone like Gallese has never played in Europe or the fact that we celebrate Mendy becoming the first black African GK to play and win UCL (there should be more!)

Navas - and Central American talent - deserves more. Much more.
5/ Also, this money should be spent on so many other needed areas for PSG. I know they have more money than God, but COME ON.
6/ I understand that GD is a great opp cause he comes as a free transfer (which is a dumb phrase cause nothing is free here lol) & he’s young & great investment, but reports are suggesting he will challenge Navas for the No. 1 spot. That to me is spitting in KN’s face.
7) BTW. This is nothing against GD.

Clearly this is a Mino Raiola/Leonardo love fest.

1/ I purposely didn’t comment on the “Latino temperament” thing yesterday because if there’s one thing I’ve learned on this site, it’s that the worst type of discourse usually occurs immediately after something happens, followed by attacks and noise instead of a chance to learn.
2/ Don’t get me wrong, I’m 100% guilty of that, so I’m trying to do better & this situation called for it. I also teach a diverse range of journalism students every year & the one thing I always try and pass on, when it comes to conversations on social, is PRODUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT.
3/ First off. Jim Beglin and I have become friends on this site and aside from his public apology we have talked. I am not going to get into the actual conversation but I can tell you he feels terrible and most importantly, he is here willing to LEARN and that to me is the key.
