You've gotta have a system (approved by the owner)...
AKA walk away now, or I'll pay you to walk away next week.
know nothing about Football and seem hell bent on ruining clubs. Still hope we destroy them on the pitch tomorrow though.
Is Rooney going to play this weekend? I foolishly swapped Aguero out for him earlier in the week, and then ol' weetabix head got injured too. Need to know whether to curse another team's striker by picking him
Would be surprised if he started
Giroud about to be transferred into my team. Enjoy spending the rest of the season in a wheelchair, Olivier
Has there ever been a shorter period of time (8 years) between a club building a stadium and then planning to build another?
only 7 past or present prem clubs don't have any of the letters 'xmas' in their name. Who are they?
got an s m8
I'm already off down the tunnel before I've seen the red.

Probably not worth celebrating if you're a Liverpool fan, just means that he'll now have an actual release clause and will definitely probably go in the summer for about 60m
It means we won't lose him until summer, which is worth celebrating. A lot of us were worried he might do one in Jan due to not being cup tied in Europe.
It's also worth praising our owners for. How a 7th place club managed to keep hold of the best available player in the world I don't know, but so far they've played it perfectly - which considering how they've played almost every other Suarez-related situation, is a pleasant surprise.
it's an unsalvageable situation.
Think it's worth noting that Suarez has been on very good behaviour so far this season. Long may it continue. Well, until the summer at least.
Rooney was far less public in his demands obviously, but I think the way both clubs kept their best players against their wishes sets a good precedent. Should be a source of comfort for mancs who were pissed off with Woodward for botching the incomings - and both players have been superb for their clubs.
Although the Rooney incident was just WEIRD looking back at it. Suarez's was a bit more conventional in terms of a player sniffing for a move when there was interest from bigger and better clubs.
But, yeah, don't begrudge Suarez for wanting a move away if the right opportunity had come around for the right price. Delighted with the way he's gotten on with his contracted job. Say what you like about him but his effort levels are extraordinary. Always has been.
REPORTED initial interest from Real Madrid which didn't tangibly materialise.
and likely a bigger loyalty clause Liverpool would want a buyer to fund. I imagine this new deal makes him a far less attractive prospect to buyers.
All this does is pretty much guarantee he won't be off in January, but will definitely be so in the summer. Another £80m Real Madrid gig probably, provided he's on best behaviour.
-Guarantees their best player stays with them for this season at least, their first in years where they could realistically challenge for the top 4.
-Makes him less, not more likely to go, especially if they do make the champions league. Plus the wages being offered...
-in the event of him leaving next summer, he'd go for a lot more than he would've done without having signed it. Don't know what planet someone's on who thinks there'd be a release clause of £60mil, considering the precedent set with Bale
-probably makes it impossible for any PL rival to sign him.
So good I can't even remember his name
cracking signing on fifa 13 if i remember
sidenote: this list is wankybollocks
eto'o and lampard above hazard?

"HONOURED TO TAKE MY PLACE IN THE ANTI-RACISM HALL OF FAME
I enjoyed a visit to the House of Commons earlier in the week where I, Alex McLeish, Alan Pardew and Chris Hughton were inducted into the Show Racism the Red Card Hall of Fame".
Doesn't get any better than that
