Really? He isn't a native spanish speaker and he sung the words to their victory song in Spanish. I didn't even know he knew Spanish... If i were a Real fan, i'd be blown away by his gesture. Yeah he hasn't a note in his head, but you wouldn't see most premiership managers singing a song even in their native language.

Bale on the other hand is pretty cringeworthy. He just looks awkward as fuck with that big massive head on him.

Yeah I meant his singing - as opposed to having the balls to do it. He's all over the shop but i'm guessing he doesn't give a fuck.

Random transfer latest: Fabianski to Swansea.
Liverpool are evens to sign Southampton striker Rickie Lambert and also have made a £16m offer to Sevilla for left-back Alberto Moreno.
Hatem Ben Arfa up for sale for 4/5 million. So is Gabriel Obertan, though no-one cares.

What happened to Ben Arfa at Newcastle? He's always played well any time I've seen him.

He's been Pardewed.

Which roughly means take a good player, let Pardew coach him and watch as he squeezes whatever talent he has left out of him. In HBA's case it meant asking him to be more of a defensive player and forgo all the attacking instinct he once had.

I would have thought alot of teams would be in for HBA, especially at that price!

We signed Mauro Zarate on a 3 year deal. Good player with bags of ability, goals and experience, just how he will fit into our system is another thing. Hopefully it means less of Kevin Nolan and more attacking promise.

Think HBA's wages are excessive. I'd rather he stays and Pardew goes but that doesn't seem to be happening.

Zarate was great in Champ Man - not so great at Birmingham. You's are apparently after Colback, Bafe Gomis & Niang too.

England Italy is 11pm kick off on a Saturday night. That a bar occasion anyway!

The ko times are great this year, except for missing the first half of the earlier games

I can only begin to imagine how hated he'll be in certain parts of Glasgow. Wonder if he'll get as much shit as Lennon

Pool have had a bid accepted for Lambert

RAWK Meltdown ‏@RAWK_Meltdown 42m
(Sky Sports report LFC are close to signing Rickie Lambert) Not a chance, not even were that stupid in the transfer market.

IF they're getting him for 4 million then he ticks all the boxes for a backup striker

I'd be delighted with Lambert for that amount, better option to bring on than fucking Aspas.

Talk is it's a sly deal that'll reduce the Lallana fee, as Southampton have to give Bournemouth a hefty percentage of sell on

I really hope Liverpool aren't being pricks about this, it's stealing from Bournemouth

Great in champ man alright, but hasn't really lived up to it. At 27 he's still worth the risk and can still score for fun albeit in Argentina. Just happy to sign a fucking striker at this stage.

Niang would be class. He seems a proper mentaller, he needs a break from Milan to get his head screwed on, hopefully it's with us. Himself and Ravel can hang out and be moody mentallers, just let them play football!
Seems we'll just be signing freebies or loan to buy's this window, hopefully we get a good few players in.

Also seems Teddy boy is getting the attacking coach role. Why not i guess, at least Sam will probably respect him.

happens a lot

sure Monaco paid £60m for Rodriguez and Moutinho last year. £57m of that was for Rodriguez so Sporting wouldnt get that much of their % of his next transfer :lol:

Ill be in liverpool on a stag for that, cant wait

That lambert for more, lallana for less is a load of balls. They will want to wait for the WC and get a bidding war going for him between pool and spurs. It just sounds like a general twitter rumour, one person said it and loads are running with it
