    You idiots, it's just an animal. What difference does it make if I bought it from a supermarket or if I raised it? Do you think farmers don't eat their animals? I don't see how that's "barbaric".

    I wouldn't say it's barbaric, but it is strange. Farmers raise livestock for the specific purpose of consumption. But you had a rabbit as a pet, a companion, a buddy. Didn't you feel a bit strange when you ate him?

    I explained in the FIFA 13 thread, that I didn't have much of a bond with it. I can see how it can be awkward if you had a strong bond with the animal. But even then, it's just an animal. The reactions I got was like if I had said I ate my grandmother.

    It's actually quite poignant. Instead of being parted from the rabbit, its molecules are now a part of ahly and his family forever (figurately speaking). Happy Tears

    PS. I don't see what the big deal is, so meh.

    I dissociate my post from its use in any area other than the one that it referred to specifically.

    It would have been worse if it was a dog. Dogs have personality. Rabbits are kinda lame.

    So average they have more world class players than Liverpool...who have none.

    It's not always about individual talents. It's about the team. We showed that last season.

    It's a pretty shit argument, anyway. I'd rather have Sturridge (24) scoring 20+ open play goals than an ageing (31, ffs) RVP, who's injured half the season and only scoring around 12 goals, including penalties. If that means having 1 world class player less, so be it.

    In fact:

    I'd have Sturridge (24) over RVP (31), based on their respective forms over the last season and what I said above.

    I'd have Balotelli (24) over Rooney (28), because I think Rooney is extremely overrated. Most United fans are saying he shouldn't even be starting.

    I'd have Coutinho (22) over Mata (26), only due to the way we play, which is a bit too high-paced for Mata, and Mata doesn't suit our pressing game.

    I'd have Sterling (19) over Di Maria (26), for this season at least, as we don't know how well Di Maria will take the the PL (See Ozil's underwhelming first season, even Keyser is pissed off with him), and we don't know just how good Sterling may become, plus he's settled here.

    Who else have they got that's "world class"?

    I'd take De Gea (23) over Mignolet (26).

    That's it.

    (I have bracketed the ages, because I also really like how young our best players are, which means they're yet to even hit their peak).

    Who are these majority of fans who think Rooney shouldn't be starting? He's already scored for them and everything

    The Primeira Liga is poverty. Players like Benni McCarthy and Cardozo were scoring for fun in it. I hope you do sign him, save us from potentially bringing him in.

    Neither of them had scoring rates as good as Jackson Martinez, though. And if it's so easy to score in that League, why isn't every striker posting 20+ goals per season?

    People said the same about Suarez scoring loads for Ajax.
