    The major difference with the Invincibles is that they were winning stuff.

    Isn't agreeing with the Club the biggest stumbling block?! Good player from what I've seen.

    Well yes, although being allowed to agree terms with him is a positive sign, as is him apparently being prepared to come.

    it must suck having a squad as incomplete as yours and having to buy players all the time.

    our squad is totally complete

    Should be fairly straight forward as well, getting these boys in from Brazil and selling them to rich European clubs is Shakhtar's business model.

    Won't be cheap like.

    No, won't be cheap. We need to see it as spending the Bale money now.

    I don't think this'll happen by the way, but I just thought I'd allow myself to get slightly excited about the possibility of a transfer today.

    Poor old Newcastle:

    Newcastle midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa says signing for Paris Saint Germain "would be a childhood dream", report Le Parisien.

    The 25-year-old has been out with a hamstring injury since early December and his club are currently 16th in the Premier League.

    He tells Le Parisien: "After I have saved my club, you never know. Signing for PSG would be a childhood dream. If there is a proposal, I will study it with interest. If there is a proposal. The "if" is important. PSG is a club that lives in my heart. To play would be a nice gift.

    It's been talked about for so long, I reckon there is a good chance.

    Doesn't mean much but the 'After I have saved my club' line helps him come across better than most players.

    He's wanted to join PSG since long before he joined us. In fact most players come out with that sort of rhetoric at some point. Demba kept going on about PSG aswell and then went to Chelsea.

    Re. pitch sizes, the dimensions were standardised at the start of the season - see the PL handbook.

    I think there are some minor differences, mostly at the newly promoted grounds, but otherwise evey PL club now conforms to some exciting UEFA standard.

    Yeah we got there in the end, although QPR isn't standard size, and that's what was being discussed.

    Another one that got away, as far as I'm concerned. Isn't he quality, and isn't he available? OK, I stop. ;)

    QPR are allowed to be slightly smaller to provide Harry with the space to drive around it in his 4x4.

    Haha, apparently Man U fans were singing:

    Your teeth are offside
    Your teeth are offside
    Luis Suarez, your teeth are offside.

    Quality!

    Yeah was going on the Stretty nearly every time he was on the ball. Was a brilliant atmosphere for the most part, group of us even chanting straight through half time, was good fun.

    Few mentions of Hillsborough but never picked up steam due to people not joining in and drowning out with other songs. Always the victim was sang plenty but which journos will no doubt criticise even though it has nothing to do with Hillsborough.

    It's tricky that one. I think for some it has darker significance than others. I think I'd personally avoid singing it.

    Was telling my friend that I wouldn't be surprised to see Willian leave Shakhtar this year, seeing as he wants out and they've bought that Taison guy. I personally thought they wouldn't sell until the summer though so it'll be a coup for Spurs if they get him in this window.

    It shouldn't be a surprise, Shakhtar will always be willing to talk to European clubs about their South American players....that's the point of them pilfering all of these Brazilians at a young age.

    The difficulty is that they are backed by ridiculous, Abramovich style money so you pay what they want or they tell you to piss off.

    I think Willian is sort of getting nearish to his contract being up, so that might make negotiations slightly easier.

    I'd like a premier club to come in for Alan, simply to hear Lawro mispronounce his name because of it being all foreign and stuff
