We look as boring as Arsenal. Maybe more so.

I love the "He always hits the target" comment about Ramsey when he's a foot away from goal. Lol.

How's Schalke 04 looking this offseason? I don't keep up much with Bundesliga (which needs to change), but I've got a soft spot for them since they gave us that little German Dynamo, Holtby.

 

If Huntelaar can stay healthy and isn't transferred, they should be able to make champions league. I find myself supporting S04 some as well.

Tony Pulis threatening to leave Crystal Palace over lack of transfer funds.

Yeah, I'm thinking third or fourth but all I'm saying is I won't be totally shocked if we win.  Yeah, I wish we would too especially because Sturridge is always going to have injury concerns I'm afraid.  I'm really PUMPED about the Origi signing (he's 19!!!!!!!!!!!!) but obviously he won't be a help to us until next year.  I guess we could still make a push at Cavani or Falcao, not sure we have the funds for either.  I'm not even sure who all is out there.

 

Yea. Origi is a great investment for the future. He is powerful and quick. It will be good for him to stay at Lille one more season.

 

Cavani and Falcao are both on £300,000/week at their respective clubs, and I'm afraid we're just not going to break our wage scale to bring them in, even if the transfer fee could be achieved. I'm not 100% sure why we aren't in for Marco Reus. He's on £65,000/week at Dortmund, so even if we doubled his wages, he's still well within our wage scale. I bet he could be had for £40m too. He's versatile and can occupy the #9 role or slip out wide and play as a scoring winger. Exactly the type of attacker Rodgers likes.

 

We'll see. Maybe Rodgers is working on a surprise.

I'm certainly not discounting the loss of Suarez. It will be a huge hit and I don't think we will challenge for the title this year. That said, we scored 101 goals last season. We won't need to come anywhere near that to make top 4. We also, in my opinion, made our back 4 much stronger.

 

I'll say it again though...we will not challenge for the title this year. Finishing 4th will be a success.

There is a decent chance Liverpool won't make top 4 this season. This will probably be one of the most competitive top 4 competitions in recent years. But I can assure you we will look nothing like last year's anemic Tottenham attack. We already have a striker who has been scoring at an alarming rate since his arrival, and his goals/game ratio actually goes up in Suarez's absence.

 

We also brought on a player who lead all English players in chances created last year, Raheem Sterling who is primed for a big year, Coutinho who is already one of the most creative players in Prem, and we built up our defense. We didn't do the Tottenham where we went and signed a bunch of guys to just plug in the first team. We have a really good first team core from last season with a position or two up for grabs for new guys right now.

"DeAndre Yedlin transfer Tottenham is done and finalized at $4 million. He will remain with Seattle for 2014 at least."

 

Not sure this is a great situation for him.

Yedlin have pace... and that's it right now.  His passing sucks and his ball skills are below average.

 

He's good on cross too.

Never mind. NBC's PL Team Picker says that it's Burnley, so I guess that's settled. Relegation, here I come! Again!

It's ok. If you support Burnley, you can just pick whichever team out of Burnley, West Ham, and Aston Villa finishes highest in the table and no one will know otherwise. You could even buy a kit from any of those teams and pass it off as the other.

Manchester United bid £15m for Vemaelen....  wtf are they doing?  28 years old, injury prone, average defender for £15m?  It's like free money for Arsenal.

 

Heard Arsenal might bid for Agger, who is essentially the same player. Just older and perhaps more injury prone.
