Jake, it'd certainly be a big loss, but Louis van Gaal has shown he can rotate and get the best of his players whatever the circumstances.
Plus, RVP hasn't exactly been setting the world alight the last couple of games, either - it may be a convenient way of dropping him.
Cool it Hammin, we're all friends here!
Fair enough Hammin - but I think the challenge on Neymar proved you shouldn't go around kneeing people in the back - it just isn't cricket.
Welcome back, Jim! Jake, I wouldn't be surprised to see Mertesacker and Hummels line up together, as Joachim can afford a slower back line seeing as Neymar is out.
Welcome back, Faisal 0 it's been too long!
Union, I presume you mean Alfredo Di Stefano, who sadly passed away aged 88.
Hammin, Union, you're right - a true great of the game.
Sleepy, I'm informed by my German girlfriend that 'hummel' is the German word for bumblebee, and she pronounces it 'HOO-mel'. I'll stick with her pronunciation, so you're right.
kris, I think after a fine defensive showing by the whole side against France, Low would find it difficult to take Lahm from right-back and play him at DCM. If he did and they went out, that'd be his job gone for sure.
pete, you joke, but we all know the Gillette Boot Room curse - criticise a player and he then goes on to have a stormer!
Hammin - Liverpool are out of the running for Alexis Sanchez according to our sources, but whether that has a bearing on the Suarez deal, I wouldn't be so sure. I'd still expect it to go through relatively soon.
