Reports out of Portugal that our Bloo neighbours have signed Matheus Nunes. Can’t say I’ve seen anything of him. Good? Bad? Indifferent?

Just discovered that Kane's agent is his brother, which explains a lot!

Ha. Didn’t realise that. In that case it’s 100% on Kane so. 
It would be great if Levy priced him out of a move

I'm pretty certain that come 31 August, Kane will issue a statement re-affirming his total commitment to the Spurs cause.

I'm sorry but nobody gives Kane 2 chances.

 

Bench him for the rest of his contract.

Looks like Chelsea are going balls in on Lukaku. Just had an 85 million bid turned down. I'd much rather they got him than Haaland.

It’s not about him being a master negotiator. It’s about him being a complete stubborn  twat.

But must spurs fans would say that for all his posturing, the end result is usually that he caves anyway, but too late in the window to make it work in the club's benefit.

I'd much rather they signed neither.

 

Either of them will make Chelsea a proper title challenger.

surely if City sign Grealish and Kane they would break the FFP again? ok yeah 100m but around the 250im mark? Personally i think they will sign Grealish and hang Kane out to dry

Chelsea and city are the main reasons that the "there will be better value next summer" leaks from the club, never make sense.

 

Chelsea will be going all in on Haaland for £150m, so good luck negotiating fees in that climate. We benefitted from a crazy Neymar fee to maximise Coutinho, so the club know full well they're talking bollocks.

Probably true, but at least with Werner upfront they'll waste 90% of their chances.

We're about 6-1 joint 2nd favourites with Chelsea for the title . City odds on. 

 

Given the lack of ambition in this window and the unlikelihood of any top signings I think sixes is way too short .

Chavs look much better bet especially if they can get Werner to put the round thing in the netty thing. 

In any event don't see City knocked off the their perch any time soon.  Fucking depressing.

Xherdan Shaqiri says he is raring to go for Liverpool ahead of the new season and in an interview with the club’s website he did not mention leaving Anfield.

 

In an apparent change of tact, the Switzerland star now looks focused on winning major honours at Liverpool.

 

Only last week the 29-year-old attacker revealed his time at Anfield was coming to an end.

 

Shaqiri has been ripe for a transfer for the last 18 months, but the former Basel man said he was ready for a new challenge very recently.

 

It appeared his patience at Anfield had expired and with Harvey Elliott primed for a chance in the first-team after excelling at Blackburn last year, both Shaqiri and Divock Origi were tipped to make way.

 

Speaking to Corriere dello Sport (via Fabrizio Romano), Shaqiri revealed the Liverpool board had accepted his request for a “new challenge”.

 

“I told Liverpool board I feel ready for a new challenge,” said Shaqiri. “They accepted my decision and will now consider bids to sell me. Liverpool won’t stop me this summer.

 

“I’d love to come back to Italy, and I’d like to play for Lazio.”

 

But the Reds’ No.23 reported for pre-season training last week and Liverpoolfc.com have interviewed him.

 

Now, it’s clear they would have avoided all transfer talk, but his focus seems to be solely on Liverpool.

 

Asked how he was feeling, he said: “Good, good. I’m happy to be with the team again here. I’m looking forward to having a good pre-season and start a good campaign again.

 

“We had some holidays, the guys who were at the Euros or the Copa America. I’m a couple of days here and I’m trying to get 100 per cent fit again. I’m feeling good.

 

“It was a very good Euros personally and of course with my country. It was something historical what we achieved and it’s something special for my country. I’m very proud of this.

 

“It says to me the hard work I do every day and with my country. I’m very, very pleased and happy and proud, of course, to achieve this kind of thing. I hope much more is going to come.”

 

Asked if his exploits at Euro 2020 had lifted his spirits, he said: “I’m looking forward to the new season and hopefully we’re going to achieve what we want to achieve with this club.

 

“Our goal is always to win, to play for titles and to give 100 per cent on the pitch. Then we will see what happens. But, of course, we’re going to try everything to win.

 

“Obviously we have a few players who were injured, they are back and they give us [an] extra boost for sure. The fans are going to be back again, I think, and that also gives us another boost to try to achieve our goals this season.

 

“We know how Anfield is when we have a game and how they push us through the game and how many times we won the games or we came back with the fans – something special. Of course, it’s going to give us an extra boost.”

 

While Shaqiri is convinced Jurgen Klopp’s men can get back to competing for the title this season.

 

“Of course, yeah. We have [a] top-quality group and very good lads – this is also very important to have good characters. To achieve as a club, we need to stick together as a team.

 

“If we do that and if we give everything what we have with our talent on the pitch and fight together with the team then we can achieve a lot of things this season,” he added.

Did we not get the most points last season in the first and third parts of it? 
We should have bought inJanuary and we should buy now obviously but we  are hardly suddenly shite are we. Others will strengthen and hopefully we should too Konate and Elliott here now and a few signings. Not an apologist as you all know just trying a little positivity. It helps my mental health.
