    Lyon has told Alexandre Lacazette if he's not happy he should leave. Had a bad attitude in training and preseason and doesn't want to stay. Liverpool got their striker, so no chance there. Wenger isn't going to sign a guy with attitude problems, so Arsenal are probably out. Dzeko, Jovetic, and Negredo all leaving City means they could go in for him if he tries to push through a move.

    Nice. I love watching Schalke-Borussia. Especially the Rivierderby

    For the foreseeable future, no one is winning Bundesliga but Bayern. I mean, they won by like 20-something points a few years back. And this season, in something of a "down year" for them, they still won the league by 10 points. At least in La Liga we might see a race between Madrid and Barca go down to the wire.

    Similar. But at least Barca and Madrid go back and forth. Top to bottom I enjoy Bundesliga more.

    This is the sad truth. I love watching the rest of Bundesliga, but Bayern's stature in Germany has ruined that league.

    I'm really not sure what happens when Studge returns. In the past, BR has loved having two strikers up top, but I'm not sure how Sturridge and Benteke will compliment each other. If he does go two up top, I expect a diamond midfield with Milner playing centrally and Coutinho directly in front of him. And the wide men will be some combination of our 97 midfielders/forwards.
    I don't expect Firmino to be a day 1 starter. He missed some pretty valuable time with the squad in preseason training, so I expect BR to go with the guys who were on the tour and who have been training. Firmino will get some 20 min duty before he gets worked into a starting role. Excited to see him though,

    I think Benteke can fit our system, but he's going to have to adjust his style some. People labeling him as purely a target man are woefully misinformed. He scores a ton of goals at his feet and many from distance. He can hit the ball for sure.
    As far as formation, all signs in preseason lead to a Christmas tree. Not sure if BR will stick to that, but it looks like he will. If that's the case, it will mean we see a lot more structure and a lot less free-flowing around the pitch. Basically the two guys playing directly behind Benteke will have freedom to work creatively, but the others will remain more rigid. We'll see.

    I heard he was traveling to Arsenal. Gonzalo Higuain is actually conducting the medical, having already gone through about 100 of them himself.

    Lucas Digne to Liverpool gathering steam. Looks like it could happen.

    I think Chelsea are the clear front runners for the title this year. Arsenal could possibly challenge them, but I don't quite trust them yet. There seems to always be SOMETHING that stops them, but on paper I do like them. City and Arsenal could battle for 2-3 if Sergio Aguero remains healthy.
    I think United are going to struggle to click for a while and by the time they find their form, it may be too late. But I can see Liverpool, Tottenham, and United battling for the last UCL spot. Liverpool are going to have some talent, but it just depends on how the squad gels.

    Top of the leaderboard is getting intense. Could very well see this tournament in a 2+ player playoff tomorrow.
