    Lots of players have gone to china in recent years. Have any of them done crazy numbers over there on the field?

    If he's interested in the game at all then it's some waste when you've your money made already. When you get to his levels it most likely is just a job though.

    True, but you must have love for the game to get that good. That's what confuses me. And £500k per week or £1m per week, either way you are never going to run out of money. Especially when you factor in sponsorship deals etc.

    It doesn't mean they've gone full retard. Lukaku is a donkey and these swap deals are never true.

    Palace said before they won't sell Zaha and AWB in the same window right? I guess once the latter went they just point blank refused to negotiate a remotely reasonable price on Zaha.

    I wonder whether football transfer business will pass a lol point where it turns into rugby-style moves of two and three year contracts for minimal/no fees. You're basically a hostage to fortune if you sign a five year contract with a lesser English club. Yes, you will earn good money; but if your ambitions extend beyond that then you can end up stuck at Crystal Palace forever. It could also go down the American ten year mega deal route (Australian rugby clubs are increasingly doing likewise), possibly with clauses relative to average earnings or something since you can't price in salary cap changes. Alternatively, anyone with a brain could just insist on a release clause of 'less than lolty million' and the problem disappears.

    Rodgers had a reasonably low success rate and even then the better signings of his have all fared much better under Klopp.

    Klopp brought 9 out of 11 of the starting team for the CL final. His success rate is near perfect thus far. The only exceptions to that are Karius and if you count him as more than a back up, Ragnar the Red.

    Either in a massive coincidence we suddenly got loads better at transfers the second Klopp came in, or better luck next time.

    Palace will accept offers less than the £80m they are asking for Zaha . Especially if Arsenal identity other targets.

    Phonics is probably mostly right.

    Klopp's signings before Michael Edwards were Grujic, Matip, Karius, Mane, Klavan and Wijnaldum. That's what, a 50% hit rate? And half of them were clearly players he saw in Germany.

    Cutrone has left the milan training camp after talks with wolves. No idea how bad he is but hopefully, he is an Inzaghi regen and celebrates like a madman every time he scores.

    And the combined fee for those players outside of Mane was about 50p so Iím sure heís allowed his picks when theyíre that price.

    Read literally anything written from Mallorca pre-CL final. Itís all statistics/moneyball transfers.

    Iím sure he gets to say no but heís not picking the players they spend 10s of millions on.

    I am a cunt but Iím an informed one.

    The committee were there under Rodgers and signed a lot of shite, along with the odd gem.

    The same people have had a miraculous run at Liverpool in the past few years. Not just signings that have done well, but signings that have performed outwith all expectation (Salah) which have transformed the team.

    In the end, for all the analytical shit, which everyone does, it boils down to good luck. Sometimes you sign Andy Robertson, sometimes you sign Alberto Moreno.

    That said, for all the players, Klopp has clearly been the best signing Liverpool have made in the last 5 years and he's the one that has taken the team to where they are, regardless of whether he does all the legwork on transfers.

    Dont you need a serious CB and RB and GK though? I like the attacking youth arsenal are bringing through but defensively, as always its a problem.

    They already bought a CB, heís just not turning up for a year. Neither of the other two are problem positions.

    Arsenal have Leno and who is the other gk they have as a cech replacement. RB is Bellerin and who else?

    Martinez who got player of the year at Reading last year.

    Maitland Niles is the back up at RB. Theyre not Man City, canít have two 50 million quid players per position.

    Argentina Martinez? If so, he has been at Arsenal for about 10 years now. Niles isnt a RB though is he? He got thrown back there. He was good when i saw him though. Rather see him play RB over Bellerin but Niles still isnt good enough.

    Bellerin and Leno had great seasons. CB is an issue but LB is way more. Holding and Sok is a proficient CB pairing, with Saliba to come next year. LB is a car crash hence the desperation to announce Tierney.

    Martinez has also been great in league cup / fa cup / friendlys
    Etc. When that ten years is from the age of 16 as a GK and heís been first choice on loan for three clubs in three years, itís not exactly a protracted period. Heís genuinely decent and as a back up to a guy with no injury history, perfectly adequate. Bellerin could do with back up, but, as mentioned, weíre not Man City and even they deployed Delph at LB most of last season.

    How did Bellerin have a great season last year? Wasn't he injured for most of it?

    Leno is average. The rest of the defence is abysmal. Definitely buy more attackers.

    Don't bother talking about the defence with an Arsenal fan (especially if it's Phonics).

    Bellerin has only ever been about speed and has lacked it due to injuries for a couple of years, they'd be better off fleecing Barcelona.

    51 league goals conceded last year (same as the previous year too), the last time they conceded more than that was in 1983-84 when they let in 60 goals in 42 games.

    arsenal can break into top four but only because of chelsea losing their hazard and basically being fucked for a year. They will probably still mess it up and Wolves to snipe them all.

    He was playing well before getting injured in January? Iím not sure what the question is here.

    As mentioned previously theyíve bought a centre back and are trying to buy a left back. Whatís the issue? You canít rely on Lcazette and Aubameyang scoring every game. Think Auba got 30 something, Lacazette around 20 and the next guy had like 4.

    I think theyíll be better than last year, that abysmal away record canít continue forever and OGS and Lampard are big time bin men so it should be enough.

    If Arsenal were serious about signing Zaha he would have kicked up a fuss, handed in a transfer request and gone on strike. Anything to force a move.

    It's easy for these players to force a move as theres no point keeping hold of an asset who is refusing to play. Look at Lallana, Lovren, Van Djik etc

    Arsenal got a central defender who *might* be good enough in a few years, and who they won't have for 1 year anyway.

    Can't wait for the season to start
