You're probably about right, but don't forget that even with their existing resources they still managed to cane several 'top' sides this season, beat Dortmund from 3-1 down in the second leg and got to the EL final. Klopp will know what he's doing next season after his experience this season.Prepare for a big clear out at pool,balotelli,origi,sturridge,benteke,Ings,and now Mane (Firminio listed as a striker but is more AM i feel tho did play uptop on his own at times),6 strikers for a guy who plays one up top.For sure benteke will go and for a soldado-esque hit on the fee,the others well balotelli will adebayor them bleed them of wages or leave for nowt or almost zero.Its classic wengerism signings i.e just ignore any sembelance of defence,they have woeful CBs Lovren isnt the question let alone the answer,skrtel will be off for sure,kolo toure,caulker (lol),moreno,enriquez they need defenders,as well as better than lucas,can,allen,markovic and milner in MF helluva job to do for Klopp with probable financial restraints with the extension to Anfield and there recent very poor transfer dealings.
So happy days then.
I like that Kelechi Iheanacho bloke at City, he's 19. Rashford is also very good, will be interesting to see how Mourinho treats him. They might both be way too expensive?Borussia Dortmund forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan has signed for Manchester United, the German club have announced.
Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said an offer has been accepted to avoid the Armenia international, 27, from running his contract down.
"Had we refused it, the player would be available for free in 2017," Watzke told Dortmund's official website
Hmmm poor old Rashford,if he`d like a game perhaps we can oblige him.
I think that ridiculous is going to become the new normal with all this TV money sloshing around, and the fucking spammers can spend what they like because us stupid tax-payers are paying for their new stadium. We will see some rally daft transfer fees this summer, but we will have to pay the big wheelbarrow loads of dosh like everyone else - are you listening Mr Buyrite?Read today that Bournemouth have offered £15m for Ibe from the dippers. Sweet divine mother of jesus, and benteke to the spammers for £31m. Have they got Levy doing the negotiations or something. That sort of dough for those 2 is beyond ridiculous.
There have always been rules covering these situations, they just haven't enforced them. 'A yellow card for at least one player when two or more from a team surround a match official', how will the ref decide I wonder, eeny meeny miney mo? That could lead to difficulties for Klatterberg at Chelsea I reckon, he would have to be VERY careful what words he used.Does this mean we arent allowed to kick 10 bells ot of chelsea again this year??
Premier League football, and the wider game in England, is known for being competitive and compelling, but also for its fairness and for being played in the right spirit.
However, the English football authorities have noticed over the past four seasons that intolerable behaviour by players and managers in their competitions have reached unacceptable levels in certain areas.
Therefore the Premier League, EFL and The FA have announced a collective undertaking to improve behaviour across the game.
When players surround the referee, a yellow card for at least one will be issued
Their undertaking will task the Professional Game Match Officials (PGMO) to take a stronger position and action towards unacceptable participant conduct.
This will focus on behaviour towards match officials, with the aim of reducing disrespectful conduct such as aggressively challenging decisions or running from distance to confront an official.
The PGMO will apply the Laws of the Game to manage rigorously the following incidents of bad behaviour with the following sanctions.
Dissent towards match officials
Yellow cards will be issued to players who:
Offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures towards match officials
- Show visibly disrespectful behaviour to any match official
- Respond aggressively to decisions
- Confront an official face to face
- Run towards an official to contest a decision
Red cards will be issued to players who confront match officials and use offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures towards them.
Physical contact with match officials
Surrounding match officials
- A yellow card for physical contact with any match official in a non-aggressive manner (e.g. an inquisitive approach to grab the official’s attention).
- A red card for physical contact with match officials in an aggressive or confrontational manner.
Conduct in the technical area
- A yellow card for at least one player when two or more from a team surround a match official.
- The FA will continue to sanction teams when they surround match officials.
Behaviour by players and club staff in the technical area will be more rigorously enforced
"We and our clubs have been discussing for some time concerns that certain elements of player behaviour are overstepping the mark and it is our collective position that these types of behaviour should no longer be tolerated,” Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman, the Premier League said.
- The requirements of the Technical Area Code of Conduct will be more rigorously enforced for players and club staff.
- Additionally, match officials will be required to retain professional detachment from players and club staff at all times.
"Things happen in the heat of the moment during fast and highly competitive football; we still want to see the passion fans enjoy and demand, but players and managers have to be aware there are lines that should not be crossed.”
