Man, I am so excited to see this team play this season. The amount of talent we have is utterly ridiculous. Kevin De Bruyne is showing that he can really become world class. Andre Schurrle netted a fantastic volley, showing his quality and knack for the spectacular finish. Victor Moses is showing signs of vast improvement. Eden Hazard is, well, Eden fucking Hazard. Juan Mata is still Juan Mata and Oscar is simply fantastic. It really doesn't matter which 3 Jose chooses for the attacking band because there is literally no bad choice he can make. The options we have to choose from are endless. I'M SO EXCITED!
- Loic Remy looks close to sealing a move to Newcastle on a season long loan.
- Newcastle are also trying to sign Darren Bent, however, Fulham and Crystal Palace are also interested.
- Andre-Pierre Gignac was a target for Newcastle but he decided to stay put.
- Andy Johnson is trying to convince Jermain Defoe to join him at QPR. His sales pitch is that QPR is a massive club. Quotes from The Mirror: "We don't need to speak how big the club is, the club's massive. It's got massive backing, the chairman's been fantastic. "Jermain has worked under Harry before. I worked with him for three or four years at England. He's a great lad. He's worked with Jermaine Jenas and few of the old Tottenham boys, and there are a lot of people here who could attract him to the club - so fingers crossed hopefully Jermain will come."
- We know Gervinho has left Arsenal for Roma, now it looks like Chamakh will be moving to Crystal Palace. Not sure if permanent or loan yet.
- Tancredi Palmeri suggests that Man Utd won't let Rooney go for less than 42-45mil pounds.
- Man Utd have finally given up on their chase to sign Fabregas.
- Fiorentina have told AC Milan they will need to up their bid significantly if they want to lure Adem Ljalic away. They had an 8 million bid rejected already. The bid was "unacceptable, certainly late and absolutely inopportune".
Did I mention how excited I was for the season to start?
