cabernet is getting so rediculous there that if they announced next season we'll be playing in cloggs & Peppa Pigs our new shiraz mascott I wouldnt even bat an eye lid.

Thank god we already have a star on our shirt as we certainly dont have any in them, its going to be a long season.

IF we deal Suarez to Barca / Madrid, why take Sanchez (and his wages) as part of the deal, as it will still leave us overloaded out wide. We would need a goal scorer to replace Suarez (Cavani, Falcao, Benteke, Lukaku, Muller could all be viable options with 85+mil from a Suarez deal). I would really like Muller if Suarez does go, seems to be a really professional player in his approach on and off the field, knows what it takes to win, is physically capable of playing in the EPL, and can play 9 / 10 / 7 / 11.
Suarez to go. Get Lukaku and Muller. Then gives plenty of options. Then sign Lovren and 2 good full backs. Johnson is finished. As much as I dont like him Ashley Cole could do a job for LFC. Flanagan is ok but even the RB from ivory coast would be special.

Suarez is 'banned from all football activity' but is allowed a transfer, to a club who should be banned from making transfers. FIFA for you

The Catalans' punishment has been suspended until a final decision on their appeal against the ban has been taken

Fifa has announced they have suspended Barcelona's transfer ban following their appeal against the punishment.

The Catalans were banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows for breaching regulations relating to the international transfer of players under 18 years of age, but the suspension has been put on hold until a final decision on their appeal is taken.

Bye Bye Chewey!!!

Arsenal have added to their crop of wonderkids by signing England youth international Ben Sheaf from West Ham.

The 16-year-old, who was rated as a big star for the future at Upton Park, had moved to the Emirates Stadium after turning down a new contract with the Hammers.

West Ham will no doubt be disappointed with the news, as Sheaf is regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the country.

He made his debut for England’s Under-16 team last season and is being tipped to feature more for the Three Lions in the future.

Funny how barca who have an ageing squad have had their ban suspended and have been able to sign some players. I bet their ban will come into play again once they've freshened up their squad.

I don't think anyone would argue that Liverpool are a better team than Southampton. If you put Sturridge up front at St. Mary's, I sincerely doubt he would have scored 30+ goals in a season.

Anyone who's played football, especially as a defender, would probably agree that Shaw is atm, a better defender than Flanagan and more likely to improve in a better team.

Shaw's defensive stats should be better then shouldn't they?

Given that he would be under a lot more pressure.

Shaw is flashier going forward and with the ball at his feet, but Flanagan is a better natural defender.

If anything, I'd say it was the other way around.

Yeah just go out and get Muller, too easy. What makes you think he would leave Bayern?

You have to be kidding right? I mean that.....
As good as both are, Shaw was able to still play against name players, Flanagan was found out on more than numerous occasions, and not by necessarily top shelf players.
Both are young and will learn. Both will progress very well to IMO. But at this stage Shaw is the standout.

Muller has been quoted as "looking for clarification of his role at Bayern" and that "his contract is with Bayern but who knows in the future".
With Lewandowski signing from BVB, Gotze, Robben, Ribery, Shaqiri etc. all playing in similar roles, could be a good time to test the water for someone who has delivered on the biggest stages and is only 24.
Reports are ManU are prepared to pay 30mil pound for Alexis Sanchez, I'd happily see LFC invest that in to Muller instead.
Would be awesome if we could snatch both Shaqiri and Muller from Bayern. 45mil pound should cover both :D

Emre Can to Liverpool a couple days ago. Lovren apparently about to spit the dummy at Southampton as he wants out but the club won't let him. Liverpool and Spurs in line to sign him.

No kidding. Flanagan is a limited player and will probably never get to the level Shaw will. Shaw is more of an allrounder with bigger upside.

Ashley Cole to Roma.

If this works out half as well as Maicon did, which it will, it's a good pick up.

Plenty of Arsenal fans still can’t believe the deal is happening, but Alexis Sanchez’s transfer to Arsenal has been confirmed… by his hairdresser.
