I think if this transfer window has taught/reminded us anything it's that the vast majority of footballers are nothing but mercenaries. Darren Bent lied his **** off in front of the camera, talks about how he wants to be part of what Quinn/Bruce are building, kisses the badge in front of thousands of our fans, tweets about how much he loves the club.... then it's all over in a flash. Less than a week after the transfer he is kissing the Villa badge.

Torres is much the same, all signs pointed to him being a committed Liverpool player, to bring them back from mid table to challenge for the title... but then Chelsea come along with their sickening amounts of money and he pisses off as fast as it can be arranged.

At the end of the day you have to love the club more than the players and remember to do so. It's very rare to get a player who loves the club as much as the fans, someone who will turn down the lure of more money and the increased chance of trophies so they can represent the team that means so much to them. The Gerrards, the Shearers, the Le Tissiers... they are a dying breed unfortunately.

Aye, spot on Scotty.

It's a damn shame how much influence money has in football these days.

Get in line for Alexis Sanchez ning, because there is big talk Guardiola loves the sh!t out of him and that Real Madrid like him coz Guardiola does. He will be huge wherever he ends up, all sorts of talent.

I agree especially with how well Afellay is already settling in and with the likes of Bojan, Nolito, Thiago and Jeffren sitting on the bench desperate for a game.

You'll like this Ning...

Jamie Carragher arrested! For money laundering by met. police after the Chelsea game. Apparently he had £50m in his back pocket.

Just wanted to bump a dying topic with a nice little ZING in regards to result on weekend.

Outplayed and outclassed. Suarez is something else, Nani is a michael jackson jerry curl ****, yes Carra should have seen red but Rafael's was worse than Gerrards in the FA Cup. So it balanced out.

Luis Suarez is the second best dribbler of the football on the planet behind Messi, the guy is absolute class. He made Man U's defenders look retarded!

I reckon that was even better than the 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

Everyone was brilliant, even Kuyt!

Lucas was another stand out. He's really starting to come of age. His only issue is shooting, but I'm sure he can improve on that. He seems to have cut out those pathetic fouls in dangerous positions where he'd timidly trip someone over. Of course he still does it occasionally, but nowhere near as much as he used to.

Can't believe the crap Nani pulled. Yeah, it was a bad tackle...but to get up and run over to the ref proclaiming all sorts, and then fall over in agony...I mean, come on. What an embarrassment.

Suarez is fucking ace. It's not just his dribbling either, his movement and vision is world class. Not to mention his deadball ability. Already love the bloke.

Kyrgiakos needs to be taken out the back and shot.

That is all.
