Glasgow Rangers drowns in debt and go bankrupt, but they're bought and change the name to Rangers Football Club.
Football must change, all this "buy and sell" thing throws the clubs into insolvency and the lack of sustainability of football is scary. 100 million euros for a player, or even 5 millions or whatever, for astronomical wages is an insult to the fans who help fund the clubs with their hard won wages.

Fixtures are out. Liverpools first three home games, Man City, Arsenal and Man Utd. Hopefully we'll be a bit sharper than them as we'll have played a few UEFA Cup matches. Roll on the new season :) .

Nah but we'll probably get a new manager for Christmas if some so called fans dont get behind manager if he has a slow start.

We'll get top 6 but I'm hoping for more. Let's see who comes and goes. You've made two decent signings already but you still need a Toure/Viera type player and someone better than Nani to get to anywhere near the teams of your past. What do you reckon? I think we should have Sigurdsson signed this week, good player. I did hear Man U were looking at him so I'm hoping we don't get gazumped.

As for the Euro's, I want England to win obviously, but im not that enthusiastic to be honest. High point for me so far was seeing my Irish girlfriends face after the forth one went in :mrgreen: .

You've got to be joking JLP? The owners wanted someone young, knowledgable and undoubtably cheap! Redknapp is none of those things. Great man manager but no tactician. Plus he would have bankrupt us. Bet you Spurs have to sell now while Harry's sunning it in Qatar or China. I'm happy with Rodgers. You with Bruce?

Bloody hell - I've seen everything now a realistic Liverpool fan! Most of them are always banging on about how 'it's their year!'

No offence intended.

Really looking forward to the new season and a fresh start, even if we are mixing with the dregs of the lower leagues.

To be fair a lot of Pool fans have been saying that ' it's their year ' for a long , long time now, but by October they realise it will definitely not be their year :mrgreen: can't see much different this year either.
