Cavani Considering Proposals From Arsenal and Liverpool

Elizabeth: I'd like to think that Suarez could at least be helpful in that regard. There is literally no one else who is in a better position to say “This club will support you through thick and thin, no matter what you do, if you produce on the pitch” and have it be genuinely believable.

saintgrobian: “And by thick, I mean Chiellini’s shoulder, whereas by thin, I mean Ivanovic’s arm.”

Shots Fired

JustinNole: LVG's Mother wears army boots. And makes a horrendous turkey sandwich. Now, shots have been fired.

PeterRed: Difficult to make a decent turkey sandwich though. Often the turkey is quite dry, normally you would pair it 4 parts turkey, 4 parts lettuce, 2 parts mayo, but that seems quite quintessentially British in its construction. You get these ideas from the continent that it is perhaps better as 4 parts Turkey, 2 parts Lettuce, 3 parts Mayo and 1 part tomato. But then when you come up against a similar construction in a BLT The BLT will adopt similar ratios but the increased mobility of bacon will prevent it drying out like the turkey. Luckily when it comes to sandwiches our manger is flexible enough to do away with turkey and use Chorizo instead for a bit of flair.

stugots05: Yeah, but what happens when one of the parts of turkey, doesn’t track back and allows another sandwich’s mayonnaise a chance to spread itself into the corner of your bread?

PeterRed: You accept it's nearly out of date and buy yourself a younger, Spanish Turkey

Deal Reportedly Agreed in Principle for Alberto Moreno

Not a Unicorn, not a Dragon, not a special ring, not an Alien life form, not an honest Politician, not a Downing goal, not an on schedule book from George RR Martin. But something much rarer! The near mythical left back. Come and see this this wonder, it may not come again for a thousand years.
