    Default ''Soccer'' 2017-2018

    Just thought I'd start a new thread for when the new season starts again in July (If you include the European Qualifiers and the lower leagues).

    Main news for my team so far is that we're getting Solanke from Chelsea for 3m.

    It sure would, mojotastic. The only reason I'd be disappointed if Brazil didn't make it would be that I wouldn't get to see Coutinho at a World Cup. Other than that I'm not personally that bothered about the World Cup myself. What about you?

    Well, Brazil has already qualified so that part's done for better or worse. Argentina is on the edge, though. It would get very interesting if they need a result at Ecuador on the last day.

    Meanwhile, I can only hope that a year at Wembley doesn't disrupt the impressive Spurs project. Now is the time to start winning some trophies.

    Yeah, Spurs do need to start winning something. It'd be a waste of potential if they don't win something with this group of players they have. No-one remembers teams that don't win things afterall unless they're a fan of that club maybe.

    As for the world cup, well at least I'd see Coutinho there (since, IMO, the Brazilian coach would be insane not pick him if he's fit).

    I'm just hoping the Swansea owners pull their finger out and invest in the team this summer. I don't want another season like the last one. It's been years since I've had to cope with a Swansea relegation battle and I don't want another one any time soon!

    Exactly. I took my son to White Hart Lane this past season so he would be able to see it before it was demolished, and it was certainly nice to see them in good form (we went to the Swansea match they won 5-0), but it would have been even better had they managed to overtake Chelsea (though in retrospect the title was lost in October/November).

    He's been in the side lately so I can't see any reason he wouldn't be picked except, as you say, barring injury.

    It's a shame the final two World Cups before FIFA's big dumb expansion will take place in Russia (ugh) and Qatar (I mean, come on). What a waste.

    Allegedly BT sports are going to show the champions league final for free on youtube. I'm not sure if this is a legal link or so, I think it is so enjoy the free final!
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    Apparently Liverpool are in talks to sign Salah from Roma. Not sure how I feel about the possibility of signing him personally. On one hand we do need players with pace, particularly when Mane is out of the side. But on the other hand he struggled the last time he was in the Premier League and he wasn't that impressive in the Champions League either by the accounts I've heard so...wait and see I guess LOL.

    I can imagine. Must've felt much lighter when Hull lost to Palace (Heavily as it turned out). Any news on the transfer front for you?

    I'm glad they did well when you took your son to the match, one of the things I don't like about football coverage is when the camera goes to a kid crying because their team lost. As for Coutinho, fingers crossed for him at the World Cup.

    That's interesting. I already have BT Sports so I won't be using this but I hope it is a legal link for those that don't have it.

    I'm happy that Matthew Leckie signed with Hertha. Fast player

    I'll be honest, I've never heard of him but since you seem to be a Hertha fan than I'm glad that you're happy with your clubs signing for you

    They sure did, especially in the second half.
