As much as he moaned after games about it being hot after that Super Cup of Champions here, he's got his excuses stockpiled. Im sure we will see moaning of a huge scale this season.

That's why I was kind of surprised he would say something like that upfront. Especially of a team like United's caliber regardless of what people say about the club after the Ferguson era. I'd be curious how supporters felt about that.

Balotelli is not Suarez but can help. Pool is used to play with a men in or near the big box, a traditional striker.

re LVG and the Swans game, i don't see it as "excuses" this is a man who calls it like he sees it period.

we had a ton of momentum in preseason (yeah yeah PRE season) - greatly building confidence using new formation and a couple of new players - and we come to a game which actually matters against far lesser opponent and suck it. if you don't think that kind of killed the confidence we gained in preseason than you're cray

So, two guys up front for Liverpool going forward? It is a pretty cheap transfer for his potential...with the potential to implode also.

Yeah.

I thought the price they paid for the Italian was very good.

I think they intend to go back to the 4-2-2 diamond that was so sucessful with Suarez; they flourished in that system. Balotteli will allow them to do that.
