I suppose having the most diverse top league in world football does have a downside, one that you may rightly think severely damages preparation, quality, selection and fitness of our national team.

    Liverpool and Everton to go to battle over 13 goal striker

Some say that at least two players will needed to replace the Uruguayan, yet based on the way the Reds finished the season without him some argue that one quality frontman will be enough.
