    What about Suarez? I know he needs a bit of house training but he's a good dog on his day, I swear.

    I have never understood how Negredo or Soldado do not get snapped up by bigger teams. This is not reactionary either based on seeing those goals last night. I watch spanish football live regularly on sky and it really does do my head in the amount of clubs that can afford them and still whine about not having a natural goalscorer.

    I think the issue comes from the fact that many coaches want a striker that does more than just scoring goals. I'd rather have the guy that only does that and have the team working for him, hence in the aforementioned argument I side with signing Cavani rather than Rooney.

    I'd say Rooney's overall game is better than Cavani's.

    I'd say that too but having watched PSG's games all season, despite having Ibrahimovic what they've been lacking was a pure finisher that wouldn't move too much around. Often Ibrahimovic would play as a playmaker with no one in front to play balls to. I'm almost sure Rooney would be tempted to also do just that. In that context I think Cavani would be a much better fit to the team.

    I hope they get no-one and have an awful season.

    Bet Madrid never though they'd sell him for a profit.

    Speaking of Madrid, looks like the government is trying to help them out again.

    It was actually Messi's dog that did it.

    That's because Cavani has rarely been asked to play out of position to prove otherwise. Although I would agree with you.

    Eriksen to Dortmund for 15m, apparently. What's happening with the Lewandowski thing? I know Dortmund have blocked a move to Bayern, so is he now staying or are United or City back on the table? Lewandowski for Dzeko + cash seems sensible to me.

    I think he'll do really well there. Excellent coach, popular with the media and players, able to work with under director of football and presidents. He'll also play more expansive football than Mourinho.

    Yeah, exactly the sort of man they needed after Mourinho!

    Those two appointments will hopefully finally get the ball rolling in the transfer window. Lots of talk that Isco to Madrid is already done.

    Was about to say that too, but it's not that amazing really when you look at what happened to AVB and Di Matteo after him. They clearly want a certain type of manager, and he always seemed too much of a gentleman for them.

    He does have a point. I suspect they bought Neymar just because he's the hottest property around (and to stop Real Madrid from getting him) rather than giving any real thought to where he'll fit in.

    He's not wrong about the adidas conflict. It causes huge problems for Barca. Bit of a shit reason to sell a player, but in terms of finances, selling him would earn them a huge amount of extra money through Nike, not to mention that they could sell him to an adidas sponsored team for a ridiculous sum.

    Sad reality about modern football.

    Saying that, Barcelona didn't need to buy him in the first place. A political transfer if you ask me.

    He's undoubtedly a great player but I can see him going a bit Robinho if he's not handled right.

    Barca have been after Neymar for literally years, and paid a fair chunk of the fee last year (there was a mysterious payment out of their accounts that was related to transfers, IIRC). I really don't think it's a spur-of-the-moment thing.

    Never said it was spur-of-the-moment, just a case of him being the main new talent (as he has been for a few years now) and so they bought him just because they can. That's how Real Madrid have operated for years, and also what Man City and Chelsea have been doing since they came into a bit of money.

    Be interesting to see if Neymar has the work ethic to match Barca.

    That's an adidas top Cruyff is wearing there. Modern football is shit for many reasons, but this kind of stuff isn't new.
