@lfcfan80, well you only play better when we're not close to full strength. We did beat you twice that season, something everyone forgets. And now that you've lost Suarez you're style may have to change. Not sure on Markovic being the next Ronaldo but Griezmann could be excellent for Liverpool. I'd argue that Chelsea and City's CL spots aren't guaranteed either, not if Arsenal, United and Liverpool keep strengthening

"If Markovic signs and I dearly hope he will, I genuinely believe he will become Ronaldo mark 2."

So is Markovic the new Dani Pacheco? I mean he hasn't even played a game, but is already being labeled Ronaldo Mark 2 and overhyped by Pool fans. Its an obvious red flag when none of the big clubs are interested in a player.

The fact that Sanchez picked Arsenal over Pool, basically showed that players don't believe the Pool hype. You need more than one impressive season, especially if your then selling your best player, to convince anyone that the team has staying power.

Pool do have some talented players, but almost all PL fans I have spoken to, doubt that any of them or even as a collective, that they can make up the loss of Suarez. Luckily you will sign Dani Pacheko Mark 2, so all should be good.

@Jay-D, no chance Arsenal is a better prospect, we play better football and are more destructive. If Markovic signs and I dearly hope he will, I genuinely believe he will become Ronaldo mark 2. There is also the possibility we will sign Griezmann to replace Suarez. A potential forward line of Sturridge, Sterling, Markovic and Griezmann with Lallana and Coutinho behind is pretty awe inspiringly awesome. What's even more amazing is that 3 of those players would be English to boot. True if you complete Sanchez's signing and also sign Khedira you are looking mightily impressive as well I will grant you. With only 2 CL places up for grabs, Chelsea and City are a guarantee for the other 2, Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton, United and Tottenham are in for one hell of a battle for the last 2 places. Bring on the new season and real football!

@jackio. Thanks Chap! I'm not tired, so why lie down? Perhaps if you and bobsy laid down together less there would be less Arserpool babies all over the place. Friendly though they are :)

of course he picked Arsenal over Liverpool. Serial champions league football, legendary manager and one of the world's greatest cities compared with a one-year visit to the CL, david brent's understudy and a long commute from an opulent Manchester suburb because no-one with any sense would live in that grotty sink-hole. Loving this Pol Pot-esque year zero approach to football from the Liverpool fans where decent players and their advisers are meant to be blind to recent history.

Lloris just signed a new contract at Spurs, make of that what you will Liverpool fans...

Arsenal are a better prospect than a Suarez-less Liverpool, especially if we do make the other signings we're going for. But as I mentioned before, geography can have a big bearing on a player's choice of club. London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Turin, Milan, erm...Liverpool? Nah. At least both Manchester clubs can offer massive wages and almost guaranteed silverware challenges. Take it from an Arsenal fan, CL football alone isn't enough to attract the world's best and honestly I think a lot of them aren't fussed at all.

@wotyomamased - top rant. Now go have a lie down there's a good chap

@HarryBoulton- this is an article about Arsenal signing two players. You bring up Liverpool. Obsessed much? You should probably be concerned about your own team being mid table and spending £60m on two average players. Muppet.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
