I also think Hazard and Oscar will be great in the PL(especially Hazard) but thats not the point I am making. My point is that they are signing all these players just because they can and they are not stopping. They want Cavani and Hulk. They are set to sign Moses to.

I wish United would sign Leighton Baines and use Evra when we are desperate for a goal. I love Evra but sometimes he leaves us open.

And John, Chelsea are signing quality players I would worry about who Liverpool have bought and are being linked to if I was you! Dembele, Borini, Allen, Scott Sinclair etc, hardly world class or top 4 material.
Most of the above players were already physically quite big and had little or no trouble adapting to the English game. Oscar will likely need a bit of time and will get kicked around at first, just like Ronaldo did when he first joined Manchester United. I'm not saying Oscar will or won't be a success - only time will tell. All I know is that Chelsea are definitely looking good for 3rd place this season. I still don't see any other team dethroning the Mancs from the top 2.

Mata, Walcott, Lennon, Modric, Aguero aren't big.

Liverpool to offer 18 million for United midfield target

Record report that Benfica are willing to consider offers for Gaitan in order to secure their financial future.

That is more like it from Liverpool, wouldn't you agree John?

Yeah I like him but if we get Gaston Ramirez to, it would be like Christmas. I hope we can get something done soon enough.

It was a joke. Bebe, unfortunately, is still with Man Utd. Although he did have a couple of good pre-season games so far.
