    Aspas getting a hat-trick is unbelievable in itself, let alone that time frame.

    Sanchez FC get their customary late winner (not that they didn't deserve it).
    it's a shame; get a stab of bitterness every time that man scores for them.

    at least spurs, everton and soton dropped points.
    up th 8th, suddenly not looking at ridiculously depressing!

    looking city city and chelsea will run away and hopefully soton will carry on dropping points (1 from last 9 i believe)
    then we just gotta worry about keeping in touch with united and arsenal
    but i'm getting ahead of myself; on to sunderland!

    That Arsenal result is massive..
    Huge result - not just for the points, but the mental lift, too.

    Gutted for Southampton - but the Alderweireld injury caused them to play the last portion of the game with just 10 men. Two tough results for them, they need to show the character to bounce back. I'm convinced they'll get a Europa League spot.

    Failed a medical due to insurance reasons I think.

    But not serious enough to stop us/Newcastle/QPR/Marseille from signing him?

    I wonder if you that was just an excuse to cancel the transfer, and you guys had another player lined up...

    Or maybe the medical team really did screw up on this one...

    A medical doesnt determine if a player is to be signed or not, it flags issue and then a business decision is made by the club. Perhaps the concern was that Sturridge was injury prone and therefore we didn't want to take a risk on another in Remy?

    Don't forget how little Remy has played for Chelsea. Makes it a lot less likely that he will get injured.

    Yeah, you could've gone for him this summer tbh. Even Valdes would be a step up, though Mignolet is not helped by an unsettled defence in front of him.

    Valdes is supposedly back training with us. I don't understand why we're in for him, he's not going to take De Gea's place and Lindegaard is a perfectly able #2. Just makes me increasingly paranoid that we're going to lose De Gea to Madrid next summer.

    It's probably just a case of finances. Chelsea can afford to take a gamble on a 100k p/w player who won't necessarily play every week, whereas Liverpool can't. Borini's decision to stay probably affected it too, he's on quite a hefty wage isn't he?

    Wouldn't mind Lloris myself to replace DDG. I can't see him staying unfortunately, when Madrid come calling it's bye bye Manchester

    After Carrick & Berbatov (and the way he cheated us out of a fee for Fryers) I don't want us ever dealing with Levy again.

    He's a pathetic parasite yeah. Worst are Italian clubs though, absolutely detest negotiating with them.

    Remy failing the medical coincided with Borini announcing he wanted to stay. I'm not one for conspiracy theories but one does wonder.
