    Halilovic to Hamburg on a 4year contract. Barca has a buy-back option for the first two years (10 and 12.5mil).

    Barca brehs, how good is he?

    Pogba tells Juve he wants to join MUTD. Juve rejected a 103M Euro fee.

    I'm a United fan, always have been but I feel Pogba is vastly over-rated. Moreover, at such an exorbitant price tag.

    Yes, SAF made a mistake letting him go but he is just not worth the ridiculous amounts being thrown around.

    I can't believe we signed back Pogba... This is insane.

    Meanwhile in Germany:

    - Rummenigge confirmed they're making a deal to send Götze back to Dortmund. Details will be negotiated tomorrow.
    - Transfer of Never Subotic to Middlesbrough has been cancelled because of a rib injury that will keep him out at least for 2016.

    Halilovic is good right now with lots of potential. He was on loan at Sporting where he played well. The problem for him is that he basically plays the same position as Leo so he won't get any PT anytime soon.
    The decision to sell him w/a buy buy back clause benefits both parties, imo. If he flourishes into a star I'm sure Barca will knocking really soon.

    He should do well at Hamburg.

    Who is the president again?

    I heard they made International Pavel Nedved to be their vice president.

    A former stud player.

    How long do I have to wait for a good Liverpool news?

    I guess Mane is good, and they're selling deadweights... but we haven't signed a real big name since Suarez. Then before him it was Torres. By that time frame, would I have to wait at least half a decade more? and Klopp isn't known for buying big names too

    Depends on how much money Liverpool got and is willing to spend.

    I always envisioned them as a Top 12 financial club in Europe but always competitive in European tourneys

    Georginio Wijnaldum is about to join I guess

    He was Top 20 player for Newcastle last season fantasywise IMO

    Yeah I wouldn't have known who Wijnaldum was if it wasn't for FPL.

    I think FSG's main team is the Red Sox and probably views LFC as a side hobby that brings in revenue.

    I understand the team has had a bad recent history with big-money purchases for mediocre talent. Why they FSG hasn't overhauled the whole management is beyond me... that is if they truly cared about quality.

    Getting Klopp seems like a step in the right direction after numerous step backs, but time will tell. Klopp just played a Keeper up front in a friendly because Lucas got injured for the lulz.

    Anyone watching the ManU-Dortmund game right now? Dembele is the real deal.

    We were apparently really close to signing my favourite Brazilian talent, Gabriel Jesus (I used to watch Brazilian league weekly and have followed him for a long time). But effin Pep is now bringing him to Man City, haunting us even after he left. Gabriel is the real frickin deal.

    I tuned in. Rojo was game. Ousmane is technically brilliant.

    Missed the goal by Castro though. Miki with the courtesy goal and no celebration.

    The substitution reminded of basketball, 5 for 5.

    I am eager to watch Pulisic, Mor and Bartra.

    Schuerrle and Goetze did not make the trip. Cray. I think BVB will be more than alright.

    Is this the Gabriel from Santos?

    Might be another one, but what do you think of him? :cool:
