Personally, as a Liverpool fan, I think we are severely buggered with the Coutinho saga. I hope we can bring in a big CM to make up for it, in some way.

Man U looking v strong. I wish I hadn't swapped Lukaku out of my dream team last week!

As an Arsenal supporter, I hate a majority of our fanbase. It's Wenger Out one minute and Wenger In the Next. #WengerInAlways

Why do we have two threads for the same thing?

Liverpool's transfer committee (owners) is pathetic.

Like how can we not sign a decent CB with our shambles of a defence?

I also expect Coutinho to go and we won't sign an adequate replacement.

If it were up to me:

Sell Coutinho for £120m
Sell Sakho for £30m
Sell Henderson for £30m
Sell Origi for £20m

Buy Draxler for £40m
Buy VVD for £75m
Buy Jean Seri £30m
Buy Aubameyang for £90m

That's a net spend of £35m + £30m up to now = £65m

We'll recoup that in the champs league alone.

All realistic transfers in my opinion but I reckon we'll end up selling Coutinho & Sakho, signing a mediocre CAM and no CB, meaning our net spend will be like MINUS £100m which is pathetic. Last year our net spend was MINUS £10m.

Rant over.

As a united fan, I couldn't be happier that we signed lukaku. 2 matches, 8 goals, I hope this form of the team continues

Lukaku was a fantastic buy, 75m seemed like a lot of money at the begining of this transfer window, but with Sigurdson going for almost 50m, Lukaku sounds like a bargain.

I've been surprised by Lukaku so far, Hope he keeps it up cause United look very entertaining.

 

I'm a Norwich fan and we've had an interesting mixed bag of results thus far.

 

I went to the Villa game last weekend and we got fucked over so badly, handball for the 4th goal and wicked deflection for the 3rd it was a shame really.

 

Excited for a season of re building.

Fcking yes!! Liverpool cruising back into the champs league.

One good central defender and maybe a solid central midfielder and I'd be happy. Well, happier if we got a better keeper too. I'd love Butland, or even Fraser Forster.

I think Lukaku could end up being the buy of the season and 75m today is like 25m 12-15 years ago, sure it is a lot, but i think United got a fantastic deal for a very young and capable striker. They are saying Kane should go for 200m+, i think Lukaku is at least comparable with Kane, so his value should be well over 100m.

 

I also think United are the favorite, i said that before the season started and now i think it even more, they have a lot more firepower this year, i like their purchases and we all know Mourinho usually does better in year 2.

Transfer deadline day today in the UK.

Lots of fun stories happened:

The Ox forgoes 60k a week wages to join Liverpool, turning down champions Chelsea on the way. (Will be a good back up player and if anyone can improve him Klopp can)

Lemar turns down £92m Arsenal move, wants Liverpool instead.

VVD not going anywhere, only wants Liverpool apparently.

Last and funniest, Barkley agrees terms with Chelsea, and then mid medical decides not to!! (Probably wants to join Liverpool?)

Finally back in the champs league and with a great manager, the most popular club in the world is heading back to the top!!
