    I would really hate Bayern if I was a German fan.

    I'm yet to meet one non-smug Bayern fan. Such an entitled club.

    I don't understand his motivation in doing it really, what does he gain out of it? He's moving to a better team, to an extent, but he's likely to play far less. Meh I dunno. So weird to me.

    2 million more per year? Also, he'd get a better shot at the national team in a Bayern side.

    Clearly a desperation move to appease the fans who'll be angry when the news breaks that they've already agreed to sell Kroos and Schweinsteiger to United.

    I don't profess to know a lot about Dortmund's finances, but I imagine they could get much closer than two million per year difference if they wanted to. Would he really, though? What if he starts slowly and spends half of Bayern's games warming the bench? Dortmund he'd start every game he was fit enough to. If Dortmund really can't afford to pay him anything close then fair enough, but it's a hell of a risk.

    Isn't the first one saying that Liverpool need lots of other stuff to happen in addition to Suarez staying to challenge for fourth?

    Probably helpful you reply to what I posted rather than the post you seem to have imagined I made.

    If you'll look closely I called Cantona's action "indefensible" and said he "squared up like a man", drawing what I thought was an obvious contrast to the sneaky nature of Suarez biting his opponent, not that Cantona's action was "manly".

    Oh, and FYI, he'd have struggled to get on with the game as he'd already been shown a red card.

    Anyway teams anounced for tonight, big evening for Bartra.

    No Villa for Barca. but plenty of pace, it is unlikely but it would be really interesting to see them playing on the break. Would have played Tello myself though.

    That is how it was intended to come across, yes.

    I've used this analogy before, but for me the kick into the crowd is comparable to stealing someone's money at gun point, whereas the biting is akin to stealing an old lady's money through deceit and trickery. Both acts are deplorable, but there's a difference in the level of their integrity, and "honesty" if you will.

    The Cantona incident was on a member of the public though, which makes it worse in someways. Football players are violent towards each other all the time on the pitch, it just his method of violence is so ****ing wierd. Personally I find the whole incident kind of amusing rather than unspeakably awful.

    I think the difference in the nature of the acts actually makes them quite hard to compare, more so than the fact that the kick was directed at a spectator, and the bite at another player. I really am somewhat surprised the police didn't decide to take this one any further though, people convicted of these types of assault where there's a chance of an exchange of bodily fluids (e.g. spitting/biting) usually have the book thrown at them when it comes to sentencing. And as I said previously, it's an act that falls well outside the consent to harm anyone agree to when undertaking an organised sporting activity.
