Phil, Allan, Bob, and Lucas, Liverpool’s Brazilians. Ironic that Lucas would have the name with the most flair.

Noel: Jose could take offence at somebody saying good morning to him.
PeterRed: Sometime you say to me, ‘good morning’ but is it a good morning? Today I see Liverpool spend more money, Arsenal spend more money, Manchester City spend more money, is the morning where only Chelsea with their small squad try to play fair a good morning? No it is the morning football dies, so no, it is not a good morning.
ajra21: not surprised ...
... madrid & real or merseyside & liverpool? tough choice.
Tras: So why isn't he already on the plane over to us?
Last season’s squad selections already caused too much furrowed-brow puzzlement. My brow can’t furrow much more, Brendan. At this rate I’ll end the season as a Klingon.
City are getting
Hammered at Stuttgart. 4-0 at 40 minutes. Raheem just ballooned a shot.
They desperately need a vocal and commanding center back.
I have some ideas.
We are firmly into "randomly generated player names from FIFA career mode" territory at this point.
Depending on the day, Liverpool are my most favorite and most hated team.
Lovren was gifted the starting role last season at the expense of Agger and (nearly) Sakho and it took half a season for Rodgers to accept it wasn’t working. Sakho then came in and was better than Lovren had been at any point over the first half of the year. So of course it makes sense that Lovren would be gifted the starting role for the second season in a row because reasons. Or it really, really doesn’t and my brains are dripping out my ear right now. Good times. And you have to think Sakho’s mulling a transfer request if Lovren starts against Stoke. I mean, it’s a Euro year. And those Euros are in France.
