    Nah, last year they had Swansea, Chelsea, Liverpool, Palace and City. Much harder fixtures! I don't think they'll struggle as much either, and expect Van Gaal to be much better tactically than Moyes, and get much more out of the squad that's already there. They're in a similar position to Arsenal though, they really need to start buying!

    Nah sorry what I meant was, their next five were supposed to be easy. I remember Furball saying their start looked worse than it was but you could guarantee they'd have 22 points after 10 games, which of course they didn't.

    Haha yeah, exactly the same here.

    Mandzukic to Wolfsburg all but confirmed and then squashed an hour later. Still think a London club should pounce on him.

    Sunday Times reckon Real/Barca fighting over Suarez, who wants out and has a 67m release clause.

    Liverpool fans can stop pretending he isn't a racist **** now.

    Thought Barca were banned from signing anyone or did I imagine that?

    But, yeah. Suarez is off. Take more than 67m tho.

    They were banned, been lifted though:

    Barcelona transfer ban suspended by FIFA, can buy players in summer - ESPN FC

    They're already in for Ter-Stegen in goal, and Alen Halilovic. Can't see Suarez leaving Liverpool this summer though.

    That's the reported release clause figure, suppose it just depends whether his lawyers got the job done this time.

    That's kinda what I meant. Our 40m bid apparently should've triggered his then release clause, but didn't.

    Reckon it'll be more like 80m.

    The lifting of the ban is a disgrace btw.

    Standard procedure when appealing non-criminal penalties as I understand things.

    Don't get me wrong, it absolutely sucks, but nature of the beast and all that.

    Suarez won't leave Liverpool this year. If he was going to go, he'd have gone last summer. If they don't win the league this year, then he'll probably go, but can't see him leaving yet.

    What is this logic based on? As others have said, he would have been off last year had his lawyers not made a meal of things.

    Real/Barca seem to be in for him this summer, whereas they weren't last year. That's a big difference for Suarez himself, but also because it's far more feasible for Liverpool to let him go there.
