It's the head ref.

There could be game stoppages past the 90th minute. Those have to be accounted for as well.

That move has been planned for forever. Unless Bayern meets exactly the price Dortmund wants, Lewa won't move. I actually think they Dortmund is ******* it up by being so stubborn, but stubborn they are.

Klopp has already said Lewa will almost certainly move to Bayern next year. I don't really understand that move though, because he'll be leaving on a free in that case. True, since he wants to leave so badly they won't get a proper market value for him from Bayern this summer, but they'll be getting something.

Also Villa to Atletico is official. And just to toss in a rumor, apparently Chelsea are preparing an offer for Benteke since they missed out on Cavani. I like Benteke, but I don't really understand why they need any new striker at this point.

Dortmund have more money than they can spend this summer between the CL money and the Gotze transfer. Holding onto Lewa lets them bring Aubameyang along at a more comfortable pace so that next year he can step in the way Lewa stepped in for Barrios and they can keep rolling. Plus holding onto Lewa lets them contend for the Salad Bowl and CL this year. If Klopp is confident Lewa will keep his focus, which I believe he will, I like the move. The only really places they could invest is FB and another depth attacking mid, and they might buy another depth attacker this year without selling Lewa.

Well I hear that Ba is moving to Russia, so striker seems like it could be a need for them.

Time for a Fulham post!

1. They are preparing to bid for Tom Huddlestone. The Spurs turned down at 6mil bid in January, and I've heard that Fulham will now offer 5mil. I was getting concerned with their inactivity after the first 3 signings at the start of the summer. They absolutely need to acquire a solid CM.


2. I'm not sure how I feel about the black V on the new kits. I like the shorts and 3 stripes on the shoulder, but the V seems off. I would have preferred pin stripes instead.



3. They are expected to land Romanian striker Marius Alexe. Honestly, I know nothing about him, but they need to upgrade the forward unit behind Berba.

4. Moussa Dembele 2.0 will sign a pro contract with Fulham in a few days when he turns 17. :)

Every time I see a terrible new uniform, it reminds me how pissed I'm going to be when Mike Ashley inevitably trolls us by getting rid of the black and white stripes.

I really wish they stuck with the pinstripes from this year.

I would have loved a combination of these 2 designs:



I'm interested to see what they do for their away and third kit.

Benteke has officially handed in a transfer request.

I agree with Cigaro about Chelsea though, I really like Benteke, but if you're at the point of bringing in as a top option, just play Lukaku and keep Torres.

Benteke is awesome! They have unlimited funds, Benteke is better than both Lukaku and Torres. Why would wouldn't they bring him in?

I dont know, unless Chelsea gets an elite, world class striker, id rather just see them develop Lukaku. I don't think its enough of an upgrade to justify blocking Lukaku.

Eh, I mean if you're willing to spend whatever, go for it I guess. But from a value standpoint, given Mourinho's preference to usually only play one true striker, between Torres, Ba and Lukaku I think they're set (maybe could add a cheaper, depth option). I also agree that while Benteke's probably better now, Lukaku has insane potential and seems near reaching his final form given proper playing time. Although if Torres or Ba are on their way out it would make more sense.

Ba is leaving and Torres sucks. Their striking options just aren't good enough.

Man U has van Persie. Man City has Aguero. Chelsea has Lukaku?

Torres doesnt suck, hes just not what he used to be. Take away his decline and look at him as a player now, hes not great, but hes certainly not bad. He's not someone who should be the striker for a top club though, no doubt.

Apparently Atletico will at the most pay 5,5 mill euro, and thats only if Villa plays there for the next 3 years. Pretty rough deal for Barca considering they spent almost 40 mill to get him, but he isnīt a good fit, and at least they clear out his massive salary.

Well yeah. He's a decent striker, but relatively speaking and considering where Chelsea want to be, he sucks.

Benteke isn't going to bring them on par with those strikers though. He's good, but not that good. And Lukaku does have that potential, IMO. If Ba does leave, certainly makes a bit more sense, but otherwise I wouldn't personally pursue.

Yeah, not the greatest overall transfer for Barca. He had a lot of talent, but with injuries and now age, he certainly did not ultimately justify his pricetag. Oh well, hopefully Neymar will.

Lukaku is so better than Benteke. Offers so much more.

If I had to field a team to play today and only today, I'd pick Benteke first. But Lukaku is the superior prospect, easily.

Maybe for like one game right now. But if you are building a club, even at a cash cow like Chelsea, there is no reason to pick Benteke over Lukaku. Maybe Benteke is slightly better now, but no way you bury a talent like Lukaku for such a marginal improvement in the short term.

I don't think bringing in Benteke would bury him. Lukaku is the only striker they have. You can't just have one striker that you'd be okay with starting. They definitely need to bring in someone.

If they actually want to be competitive, they can't have Fernando Torres as their #2 striker.

And don't forget, Benteke is only 22. Last season was his first season in the PL. He's going to improve a lot as well...
