Interesting table. Hats off to Athletico. LFCs squad costing more than Bayern's.

Chelsea up to third if you include the value of the 30+ players they have out on loan?

You didnt now anything smashy. The only thing you know is how to identify  80s top 20 hits from 200 yards.

Which is it then Derms, you flatulent clam - do I know nothing or just some mumbling shit about the 80s?!

Cheers Smashy.

At least Ol' Harry is on point re the current Liverpool side.

All this 'buying someone only if they improve the squad' is nonsense.

Yah, absolutely - Chelsea just buy players mostly to improve the Championship and some of the lesser European leagues eh...

Alternatively maybe they (sonos) will get their act together and team up with youtube like everyone really wants.

that's my big concern too.  sirius helps, but i stream a lot through soundcloud because it's so easy.

Fuck me - I don't want to get all 'Grant' about this but you lot readily and happily paid £££s to wirelessly stream all over your houses in 128kbps?!

This is NOT a 'top ten' thread - (unmixed) compilations only - as many as you want at a time, as many times as you want - it could be a label based compilation - could be artist based - could be physical (CD) or WEB download - or, (this will confuse a few...) could be the unmixed WEB version of a mixed CD release - please provide a Discogs link (if at all possible?!) along with your YouTube example.

Just a chance to share releases that might have passed the rest of us by - anyone posting a Northern Exposure or a GU00? or whatever, can expect to be mercilessly taken apart... 

Old, new - hip-hop, chill-out, tech-house, trance, disco - anything goes - like this,

Tommy Boy's Greatest Beats - '81-'96 - classic 'old-skool' hip-hop with some rarities thrown in...

or this,

Masterpiece - David Rodigan - pretty much defies description...

or...

DJ T's edits of Strictly Rhythm classics...

... going to be a slow burner this one but you get the idea...

Yeah, I'm all for this - if he can do the 'yellow-rolls-from-side-to-side-smiley' that was always a 'classy' substitute for 'LOL' then I'm all in - 100% behind the pitiful cunt...

'Maestro' - the Larry Levan inspired review of Disco's American transition into 'house'...

Some great old footage and some 'fabulous' tunes - if everyone who'd ever downloaded a Hardwell tune understood that they owed a small debt of gratitude to Levan and his peers then the world would definitely be a better place.

Kev, you're clearly a World Class Manager who should apply for either the Arsenal, Real or German national side jobs.

Dan, I'm even further away from your sardonic suggestion of being a World Class Manager than Ozil is of being a world class player.  But then I guess deep down you knew that. 

Bit like deep down you know Ozil isn't actually 'world class'.  He's very good - but he's nowhere near a World XI in his position.

*edit*
... and when I say 'nowhere near a World XI', I mean properly fucking miles and miles away - but then so are most other Arsenal, Real and German players...

Some nice moments on this - still think my favourite one of the series is the first one.

wei wrote:

Ozil is a brilliant footballer - Arsenal fans who slate him are just stupid, the kind of people who'd rather see 'industry' in the form of a headless British chicken getting the tackles in and treating the ball like a hot potato.   He played better for Madrid but I think he had better players with him...

In the scale of all the people on the planet who play football Ozil is so near the top as to be basically, yes, right at the top.

In the scale of the players who've cost £40m+ then I'm struggling to think of worse value for money at the moment...

I've seen him 'in the flesh' twice and he's been woeful on both occasions - last time I watched him closely was on the opening weekend of this season and he got monstered by a 16 year old debutant.  Clearly he's not shit and every once in a while he'll do 'something' and maybe even have a half decent game.  But he ain't fucking world class mate and, given the strength of the current World Champion's squad he does well, like I said, to get on the pitch for them.

wei wrote:

Is he that bad?

Honestly never heard him play, but his name makes me think "Fabric".

File alongside Craig Richards and Terry Francis.

You file him where you like wei but I'm filing him NOWHERE near Craig Richards or Terry Francis.

I don't get this...

A hard-back travel photography book, some postcards, a nice box and mix by James fucking Lavelle?

They could throw in £50 cash, an Emma Watson Fleshlight and a family pack of beef Monster Munch but it's a still a fucking James Lavelle CD. 

What are you supposed to do with the post-cards - send them to all your friends with "Don't make the same fucking mistake I just made" written on the back of them?

If we went in for Benzema and Cavani but couldnt get them because a) Benzema/Madrid said no and b) because PSG wanted £50m for a 28/29 year old what other options out there would be avaliable that would improve our (currently misfiring) attack??

Is Benteke a better striker than Giroud? Would he be the answer? Jury is currently out after 4 games for Liverpool. Is Charlie Austin worth a punt at £15m or is he just another Franny Jeffers?

Its all well and good saying why, why, why. But Arsene has said all along he'll only spend the big money if the player truely improves the team. He has done that with two World Class signings who have improved the team in Ozil and Sanchez.

This time around he's obvs missed out. Its not the end of the world but if City are paying £100m for two players who are probably only real worth £30m a piece then what hope have you got to compete in the current transfer climate.

I agree with all that Dan, except Ozil isn't world class - I'd say he's a competent first class footballer who's lucky to play for his country.

Fucking difficult to argue with that.
