It's good news that legally things are progressing, but it's important fans remain quiet about this on social media. Legally we're not allowed to comment as it might prejudice the case. For justice to prevail, twitter must stay silent for now. Here's hoping.

That wasn't even top-tier Germany. That was like junior-varsity Germany.. If I was the rest of the world, I'd be worried.

Though I think all the usual suspects will have good odds in Russia. France, Spain, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, etc

Yes exactly, and that is the scary part considering they didn't even send the full squad. But I agree with you, come 2018 other countries will definitely be serious contenders

Looking forward to the women's Euros starting this weekend. Anyone else going to be watching it? For once, the England side are actually good.

I don't get to watch any football most of the time - I mean I'll certainly keep an eye on results.

 

What's the thoughts on transfers?

 

Lukaku is a great buy for United

Lacazette is a good buy for Arsenal but way too dependent on Sanchez not leaving

45m for Walker is crazy, in my mind

 

Er....that's it.

Yeah, Lukaku is a great signing. Haven't seen many other eye-catching transfers. City were in need of a right-back but it looks like Walker will total £53m which is crazy. Jonathan Wilson in the Guardian said that fees now are "collective madness", saying it's not just that Walker is no Messi or Ronaldo, he isn't even Stuart Pearce or Steve Nicol. 

 

As for my team, Liverpool... well, I hope Klopp knows what he's doing with Salah, but it looks like Lucas is going which i'm gutted about. I love Lucas and I think he's really underrated. Markovic and Flanagan are back, which I'm happy about and I hope they stay now. Markovic is going to be a star, mark my words.

What a game last night. Brilliant. 

 

Also. If Kyle Walker is worth £50m+, Gary Lineker is a bargain.

Don't know how I feel about Morata.. world-class, sure. As a sub. And never in England.

I guess as long as no one goes the other way. Hazard, Courtois.. Kante.. no good.

At least I'm not stuck with Lukaku.. I just don't get what people see in him. I don't rate him at all, he's a choke artist

You watch the Community Shield?  I like our new boy Kolosnac...built like a tank, what we need.

 

I'd take Lukaku, but then I'm an Arsenal fan and the idea of a physical forward is intoxicating

I like the look of that Lacazette, or however that's spelled. Could be a crucial signing for Arsenal - looks like a good finisher, and for years they've played great football and haven't been ruthless enough in front of goal. Will be interesting seeing more of him.

 

I like Lukaku. He's a big, powerful, quick, physical number 9 that scores goals. Don't see what's wrong with him.

 

Bit worried about Liverpool this season. I still think we need a top centre back and a top central midfielder - gutted Lucas has gone - but the most worrying thing is that I have no idea who our starting XI is going to be or even what our formation is going to be. How on earth is Klopp going to accommodate all our attacking options, and who on earth is going to defend? Could be another swashbuckling, defensively risky season from Liverpool, attempting to just outscore the opposition, with a deep-lying playmaker and then 5 attackers. Not sure my blood pressure can cope with this.

You've got to be impressed they rejected £90m for Coutinho though?

Impressed? Nah. If Virgil van Dijk is worth 70 million quid, then that makes Coutinho worth a lot more. And it's not like Barca are short of a few quid.

Yeah, that's the tricky thing. Before the game they were talking to Carragher and Jamie Redknapp, who was like "at some point you have to say, £90m is a lot of money". Sounds crazy to say it, but is it, now? Full backs are going for £53m, you couldn't sign a top centre back and a top central midfielder for that £90m anymore. Mental. 

 

Against Watford today we were defensively poor yet again. No holding man, vulnerable through the middle. This isn't going to work. Although how on earth that last goal wasn't offside I'll never know.

That offside goal at the end was a complete shocker. I know there are tight calls and it's hard for the officials to get it right, but the officials can fuck right off with this one. Blatant as fuck. Refereeing standards in the PL are an absolute disgrace. Yeah yeah, I know, we deserved everything we got, but at the end of the day that decision was massive, and how a referee or a linesman couldn't see it is fucking shameful.

I agree about the offside. I don't agree with video refereeing but how human eyes couldn't see that i a mystery. He was standing right next to Mignolet, I mean there's multiple reasons why it was offside. 

 

Meanwhile, I've got a hunch that this is going to be a high scoring season and it'll be the highest goal-per-game average so far in the Premier League. I wanted to put money on that and have tried 3 bookies (Coral, PaddyPower, SkyBet) and no one will do it. I thought you could bet on anything these days but they don't want my money. FML, or something.
