Sure he did, sure he did. Fooled Kenny then eh?

 

Only those two games got him the England call up to the Euros as well then eh?

 

Not the lad's fault he got caught up in the money laundering scheme, I mean highest British transfer fee.

 

Has a lot of potential but will only fulfill it at Newcastle unfortunately.

 

He was injured when he signed, he was leaving the club he idolised without really a say in the matter and he was still developing his game.

 

I remember him tearing Man City a new arsehole at Anfield in one of his first few games, did you see it?

 

FA Cup Semi Final against Everton did allright then eh?

 

Suppose you never celebrated when he scored then?

 

Huge expectations on someone so young still developing his game and looking for consistency in it created unrealistic behaviours amongst our fanbase.

 

If he ever finds his way back to Newcastle you may see the real him. Sometimes that is just the way it is with some players.

 

I actually thought he was fucked over a little. I remember him destroying Wolves then being left out of the team for the derby the week after. Shit like that destroys confidence in young players and he is definitely a confidence player.

 

Andy Carroll is shit and has always been shit.  He had a 3month spell at Newcastle when they got back in the Prem when he was less shit.  We then wasted 35million on the piece of shit.  The End.

Hate agreeing with maureen but we have no European football as a distraction unlike everyone bar the shite.

The reason why we don't have European football is we did not play as well as our peers, and so finished below them. The "distraction" argument is rarely supported in practise.

we have everton at home then winnable game (i.e. team not in top 8) then arsenal, then winnable, then run of winnable games before another run of big game, winnable game for the rest of season starting with united away.

Happy to just agree to disgaree not to derail the thread. We all have our opinions, that's what makes footie so addictive.

any sympathy I had with him over injuries and big transfer fees was gone after I saw this

When he joined us he was already injured as a result of falling off a barstool while trying to balance 12 jagerbombs.

 

Writing was on the wall from before day 1.

He's so busy destroying the opposition all the time he forgets to score many goals.

Did you even read what I wrote?

 

Admittedly as a striker he probably could have scored more goals for us but I think we hit the bar or post something ridiculous like 57 times that season.

 

Football though is much more than just scoring. It is your overall contribution to the team effort.

 

Just those three games I mentioned summed up his time here.

 

Scored in the FA Cup semi against Everton and I thought played really well and deserved his spot on merit.

 

He then gets dropped for the Final but nearly changes the game singlehandedly when he comes on, scores one, arguably could have had another.

 

He could have dropped his bundle there and he probably had done before but that performance showed a little bit of maturity in how he responded so you have to give him dues there.

 

He is reinstated for the Chelsea game at home, doesn't score but I think put in one of his best shifts in the shirt. He was everywhere that night.

 

Like I said everyone has an opinion which they are entitled to.

 

Like I also said I think he will only ever realise his true potential back at Newcastle.

If it was in the mirror it must be true, why only the other day they printed a pciture that proved Suarez wasn't touched by Lescott and just threw himself to the floor.

Nothing from two really good efforts.


No luck whatsoever. Referees, linesman, the bar.


Cruel consecutive fixtures right at the end of the year certainly cancel out any advantage we had from the "kind" list of matches we supposedly enjoyed early in the season.


And now more injuries.


Gutted.


Fucking gutted.


 


But... the fixtures get "easier" now.


Gerrard and Sturridge back soon.


We face the top 4, plus Spurs and Newcastle, all at home.


The toilet our toughest away assignment.


January reinforcements hopefully.


The Cup coming up too.


Start by dishing out some revenge to Hull.


 


Happy Fucking New Year, everyone.


The worst might be over.


Faith. Hope.

Every year there are teams in the league that don't have the distraction of European football. I rarely recall them finishing top of the league.

 

We will not win the league this year- going from 7th to 1st is too much of an ask, especially as most of the clubs ahead of us outspent us over the summer (with the exception of ManU who we have overtaken and Everton who instead got exceptionally good loan signings).

 

We have a good shot at the top 4 which is pretty good progress.

It's a tactic isn't it, kicking players in the first five minutes of games. Allardyce's teams do it every game. Very rare to get sent off that early, especially with Webb refereeing you at home.

 

Man Utd's defence have a tactic whereby someone crosses the halfway line with space in front of them, Rafael, Vidic, or Ferdinand rugby tackle the attacker and take the yellow instead of the attack happening.

I've read several match reports, and not a single one mentions Cahill's tackle on Luis. I thought he should have been sent off. It was pure luck it didn't end really badly.

It wasn't even shown on motd2 last night.

All this complaining about Chelsea's roughhousing is legitimate. But why didn't we retaliate with some stiff studs challenges of our own. If the referee isn't going to protect our players, which was clear after 5 minutes, it's the duty of the players to protect each other.

 

When Mirallas gored Suarez, what happened? It took Suarez to try to knee him on the sidelines an hour later. Somebody should have busted Barkely in the ankle - that would stop this kind of shite immediately.

 

We need a hard man, have for years.

What we need is another Didi or Mascherano to replace Lucas. I wouldn't call either a hard man but both knew how to put in a tackle at the right time and especially in Didi's case win sneaky free kicks a la Luiz yesterday. Lucas is fucking gormless, he puts in half arsed hang your leg out challenges in silly places that put us back under pressure.

    • Nothing to see here ....      
    • Gini Wijnaldum has attracted further interest on the continent with Paris Saint Germain and Inter Milan reportedly very keen on signing the midfielder.   It is common knowledge that the Dutchman’s current contract expires in June, but to this point there has been no movement on a new deal leading to strong speculation that the very popular figure will be departing come the end of this campaign.   The most recent comment by either party came last month with Wijnaldum rather blunt about how things stand.   "There is no update yet. I also think I’m not the one who should give the update.   "The club should do that. So if there is an update, the club will give it."     The 30 year-old came very close to departing in the past off-season as new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman had identified his countryman as a key part of his rebuilding plan, however Jurgen Klopp was able to hang to a key member of his squad.   And it is a good thing too as Wijnaldum has been at his consistent best and his durability has been a godsend for the manager in a squad wrecked by significant injuries.   He has made 37 appearances in all competitions and is set to lead the team in Jordan Henderson’s absence.   The Mirror ( via French publication Le Parisien) reports that  PSG have made it known that they are particularly interested in landing Wijnaldum on a free transfer while Inter Milan are monitoring the situation.   It is clear that if the Dutchman does depart Liverpool after five seasons and over 200 appearances, he will leave a sizable hole in the Liverpool midfield as well as his general impact in and around the squad.

    • Surprised the Brazilian PM didn't get involved to be honest. He's a massive twat and was fully expecting to make differenent rules for the National keeper. 
    • Still no official word on his injury after a week.  That makes me nervous.
