Despite Real's poor start to the season are we only gonna pretend that they're only 4 points behind the leaders Barcelona?

For neither Barca or Real to have a better ratio than 2 PPG after 12 games has to be historic. Neither have been anywhere near infallible this season.

Just reading about it and it doesn't seem that bad.
One urine test was bolloxed because he had a shower beforehand.
The second were two injections that Substance is not banned before matches as long as the doctor informs. It is not performing enhancement but anti inflamatory to help rehabilitation. The doctor failed to notify though.

The BBC are saying that the Dr reported that Ramos had injection, but put the wrong type on the form. The one he named was also on the ban list unless reported so it doesn't look like he was trying to hide anything, it looks like he was just a bit distracted after his team had won the champions League.

The Twitternet is full of Liverpool fans doing their grieving rituals, suffice to say they hadn't checked the dates of the alleged failed test.

Are they ever not airing grievances? They are always the victims. Every day is festivus for them.

No. He's 33. Good still but will see a decline. We should stick with getting young, hungry players.
Winks and Skipp could really learn tons from training and playing with Luka. Very unlikely to happen but I can see some benefits from it.

We need someone with experience. Who knows how to win and help us progress, just like Davids helped us. And Modric would do that. He’d be a starter for sure.
