    It's hardly that small.

    Rumour this morning that Tello to Liverpool on loan is going to happen. Can't be worse than Moses, surely?

    Tello is a great talent - I hope they don't let him go.

    Apparantly Barca see their future front line as Tello, Delefou and Neymar so can't be bad. With Sanchez tearing it up this season he isn't getting any play time though.

    They obviously play with a rush goalie in Malaysia.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    We get linked with him every window. Rather get Montoya instead but if he is available to be loaned, why not. Salah deal looks to be done swiftly. Do hope we get the Defensive midfielders sorted as quickly.

    Amazingly, Pedro is 26 now. I always think of him as an up and coming youngster.

    The Tello thing is in Marca so it's probably nonsense.

    Seems there's going to be a couple of new faces really early in the window (if a couple of reliable twitter ITKs are to be believed). Hopefully one of them is Salah. Exciting times anyway.

    Not a game goes by without him doing this. Don't know how it goes unnoticed. Dirtiest player in the league and an absolute cunt.
    I can only think that the gormless look on his face makes people think he's not doing it on purpose.
    He is absolutely terrible at tackling. I winced everytime he went for one when he was with us I knew it was going to be a foul conceded.

    I can scarcely believe he ever played for us at all. Amazing to think how far the team has come since those days.

    Bring back Konchesky, Adam, Voronin, Jovanovic, Downing and Carroll if you ask me.
  • Deleted user 30 December 2013 13:55:28
    @kalel As a Stoke fan, I can't condone Adam and some of his antics, some of them have become our undoing at times. You're assessment of him doing it every game is wrong, however.

    Well, it's certainly every game against us anyway.

    Bet Suarez feels a right tit for signing that new contract making it much harder for him to leave. Out of the top four halfway through the season, and Utd right behind them and looking ominous.

    Such a staggering fall from grace. They were dead certs to win the league last week, nailed on to pick up 4 important points over Christmas along the way.

    Compared to others going for Top 4 it really is, and all these injuries are just making it worse.

    Damn that sorcerer! Twenty gold pieces and Iím wankered on Rohypnol.

    Nah, it's a calculated move by Liverpool. They just want £100m from Madrid. Be surprised if he stayed past the summer.

    Anyone who thinks he'll still be at Liverpool next season is dreaming. They'll get a very decent return though, Bale's record will be blown away I'd have thought.

    No way will Suarez get more than 100 million euros.....no way, he'll go for around £60 million.

    It's a no lose really. He gets a pay rise for 6 months. They get more wedge.

    "Out of the top four halfway through the season" means about as much as "top at Christmas" does. Most teams in the league this season would drop a few places from having to play away at City and away at Chelsea one after the other.

    Unless City (or Arsenal or Chelsea, but that's pretty unlikely) go on a run, it's going to take less than 90 points to win the league this season. On the other hand, it's so tight that it's probably going to take more than the usual 71 points to make the top 4. Liverpool are on target for 72 and the second half of the season is theoretically easier than the first, having played 6 of the top 7 away from home already. Writing any of the top 7 off at this stage is foolish.

    Spurs came 5th with 72 last year, and thi year there are more teams with more points than Spurs had at this point last year (including Spurs).

    The past is meaningless, there's never been a PL season as close as this in the top half.

    Everyone is guessing about Suarez. No-one even knows what the release clauses are. If we make top 4 I'd expect him to stay, but I wouldn't be surprised if he goes. If we don't make top 4 I'd expect him to go, but wouldn't be surprised if he stays.

    In the summer a majority of people were saying that Liverpool couldn't keep him after his "antics" and they had no choice but to sell him. Instead they kept him and he's playing out of his skin. Anyone offering concrete opinions on whether he's staying or going is just setting themselves up for a fall.
