      Yep, always reminded me of Hyypia because of how he reads the game tbh. Absolutely monster of a defender.

      If cheap enough we will, for the commercial opportunities that lie ahead in the Korean market!

      Cho stood on his head today to keep Germany out of the net. Commands his area well, also.

      Highly unlikely I know.

      Coutinho has been immense. Have to admit that I'd rather have him in the team then the money. Still 26 and performing on the biggest stage of them all.
      know he wanted to leave but still, can't help but feel bit sorry. Great player.

      Id rather have the money than a player who didn't want to play for us.

      Interested in seeing how Dendoncker does for Belgium tonight. I really like this guy from the couple of time I saw him play with Anderlecht. Plays as a cb today even though he's more of a CDM.

      Also anxious to see TAA play his first wc game!

      MSN news had us linked (according to an unnamed "German source") with Lozano of Mexico today.  Hope so, he looks a fine player.
      That said, the only German source I can think of has a bloody great Bratwurst underneath it, but I hope there's some truth in this.

      Also, why not take a punt at Aguero?  If Citeh think he's second best to Jesus they must be bonkers, but offer him first team football and we might get someone who really could change our fortunes.  Showed he's still got it against France yesterday.

      Rebić please before his former coach Niko Kovač brings him to Bayern. Guy is a tank with incredible movement and technique.

      I would be thrilled if we moved for Yerry Mina this summer (If he becomes available for a reasonable price that is). I do really think that he alone could add 6-10 goals a season.

      Lovren played 29 caps in EPL and managed to score 2 and assist 1 last season. I do really think Mina would score closer to 10 and probably assist on a similar level over the course of a season. When it comes to his defensive abilities I think he probably is on the same level as Lovren but can improve a lot under the leadership of Klopp and by having VVD as his partner in crime.

      You must be joking Lovren is a far superior defender to Mina.

      A defenders job is to keep goals out scoring goals is only a bonus.

      For the reported 11, 18 or 21 mil that Barca wants for his services (Depending on different sources) he would be a bargain at his age.

      My only concerns with Mina is that he sometimes put his team mates in trouble, by for example passing the ball back to a player that recently been pressed which makes it really hard for that player. However aside from that I do think he could contribute.

      I do agree with the last part. However let's agree to disagree. I do think Mina has potential and could grow rapidly with better players around him.
