    In better news and in spirit of the epic reunion: Bacca soon to be Sevillista. He is ready to go to Sevilla with less salary, because both he and his family like and prefer the city. Rumours suggest that it will be loan, with 10 million euro buy out clause.

    Can he still perform though? Seems to me he's regressed at Milan.

    Bacca-Muriel upfront is an interesting duo.

    Sevilla is basically Argentina these days. The new Inter.

    Pizarro, Banega, Montoya, Correa, Pareja, Mercado and Vazquez all play for them.

    I've only seen the goals. Great assist for Escudero and classic cut-inside goal from nolito. Now both nolito and banega showed some promising stuff. Correa is also showing glimpses of quality as well. Now just one of the CFs needs to step up.

    It sure is:)

    @VorZakone I think he should be better than Vietto from last year and I think he should be able to give Ben Yedder amd Muriel enough competition to make those two to keep consistency. But I am being biased, since Bacca was a serious favourite before he left, I could still be affected with the romantic idea of the striker that he was in Sevilla.:angel:

    @SfcNervion, Sanchez Pizjuan does look great! It is a bit like the Emirates now ;)

    Haha, indeed:) I hope the team in it is not as disappointing; what is Arsenal doing ?!

    Edit: I just recalled the nightmare of last year; Arsenal are about to do "a Sevilla"... God damn Leicester...

    It's the first game of the season. It's a celebrated tradition at arsenal to lose the opener at home. Nothing to see there

    BTW, honestly you should look for something better than Bacca if you can

    Yep, that is true. Don't you dare say that about Bacca. He is the inventor of striker role, after Kanouté and Fabiano. :wenger:

    But to be serious; it can't hurt to have Bacca in the squad either. If the premiss is to have him as second/third striker.

    Edit: and arsenal's tradition officially ended.

    Sevilla are always there or thereabouts. I admire them in some way. They have such little money compared to other teams of their level and lose their best players almost every season, yet they are still always competitive.

    And unlike Atletico, they do this by playing attractive and attacking football.

    They're such a well run club, Valencia could learn a thing or two.

    Yeah, it could be worse.:) It would be interesting to see how other teams would cope with maintaining high ambitions while losing key players every summer :rolleyes::mad:

    @Santi_Mesut_Alexis_87 that is nice !:D

    If the referee writes in the act/game certificate (I don´t know the translation to "acta") that Cristiano pushed him, it would be from 4 to 12 games in la liga

    No will really knows.

    Madrid are apparently going to appeal the second yellow - at the moment whatever he gets for the push will be added to his one match red card ban. The disciplinary committee is expected to meet on Wednesday.

    Purely for educational purposes for @Santi_Mesut_Alexis_87

    The correct answer to:
    is:
    "No one expects the Spanish inquisition."

    On the bright side for Madrid it was categorised by the ref as a light push, which makes for a 4-12 match ban, not a violent one. Typically it attracts a 4-6 ban, on top of any associated ban for the red card. That's if it gets reported by the ref, as it was here. Some refs just ignore similar things in the official report - but coming straight after a red card with all the cameras focused on it, that wasn't going to happen here.

    Now watch Asensio go on a tear scoring like 6 goals in those 4 games (one is going to be Supercopa's 2nd leg)

    What is the national team lineup going to look like moving forward this season and into the World Cup?

    I'd like to see - De Gea, Carvajal, Pique, Ramos, Alba, Biscuits, Thiago (or Saul), Koke, Asensio, Isco, Morata but can't for the life of me see Iniesta being dropped and Silva obviously is a favorite and has generally been good on the NT. Think this lineup would have the usual midfield possession but a cutting edge in the final third.
