The whole thing is absurd. We bid 30m at the beginning of summer, so he's somehow managed to improve threefold over the summer.

But it's becoming clear players don't want to go to Arsenal.

Daniel Levy, eh? Cashes in on wantaway wing-back whose position is covered and a failed centre-half, gets in two centre halves (ready-made international and prospect) and an international right back with a reputation to restore for a bit less, and fingers crossed that will help finally to provide a (proven) back-up striker in Llorente: plus, he still wants to add a 24-year-old international midfielder (and I wouldn't put it past him to claw that money back by selling on Janssen and even Sissoko).

Aaron Ramsey less than complimentary about the AOC move on Twitter.... #shambles.... of course that's his nickname and I'm sure Ramsey never intended it to be taken any other way :roll:

£183 million for Coutinho?

Liverpool are either seriously deluded or that was their 'go fuck yourself' price.

I wonder which one?

Liverpool's Emre Can reaches agreement in principle to join Juventus in the summer

Sad to see as I like him, but pretty much assured of champions league football and always being in the running for the title. Suppose you can't blame him.

Barkley has stitched his boyhood club up to the tune of £20M. I hope he brings some earplugs and a nappy with him when he returns to Goodison.

Only 20m? Youse got robbed, seriously robbed. Drinkwater was 35 million. When he has his head right, Barkley can be one of the best around.

What, you think many will turn up to watch reserve games just to have a pop at him?

Yep, that’s pretty good. The notion that a player’s value goes down if he doesn’t want to play for the club he’s at is particularly good.
