Friendly vs. Burnley

Recommended Posts

Supposedly we played a behind doors friendly vs. Burnley yesterday.

 

Lineup was

 

Jones, Enrique, Sakho, Toure, Coates , Kelly, Can, Allen, Suso, Ibe, Lambert.
 
2-1 to us with Lambert scoring both is the most common score reported.  Some websites say we lost 2-0 but these all originate from an Everton website.  Shocking!  Must be that they "go to the game".  Even our behind doors friendlies at Melwood.

Envy that our behind closed doors attendance was larger than theirs for Osman's testimonial.

We won 100-0 but they fielded only 2 players who started more than 11.5 matches in the last 5 seasons for them.

I are having got that one.

It doesn't matter what the score was it was only a pre-season friendly, unless we got beat of course and then it is the end of the fucking world and iain Ayre should be sacked immediately and replaced with the bastard love child of Rhianna and Etooooooo

According to that well known Burnley fan Alistair Campbell, his twitter page is saying that we got beat 5 -0 ......and we know he always tells the truth....

    • I'm having a fucking stinker at the minute. Apologies.   All over the shop.   Handed in my notice at work on Monday.   Work laptop went tits up on Wednesday.   Had to travel to Bracknell for night shifts on Thursday and Friday and everything is shit.   Lee gets my vote - Job done.
    • David with a very good goal to seal Canada's win vs Honduras in WC qualifying tonight.   And Costa Rica have just taken the lead vs. Panama in what's been an excellent match.         
    • Yeah, you'd think that's true.   If this happens, it won't take much to talk myself into it, despite my caveats. It's already kind of happening. Porto fans think he's basically the messiah, that's something.
    • John Barnes believes that Yves Bissouma would be the perfect addition to the Liverpool midfield.   While the back four and front three by and large undergo minimal change on a game to game basis, it is the middle part of the pitch which sparks a great deal of debate.   The long-drawn out departure of Gini Wijnaldum last summer left a hole to fill but rather than dip into the transfer market, Jurgen Klopp chose to keep the faith in what he had and give opportunities to some other players in the midfield rotation.   Thiago, Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have all had opportunities to show their wares.   And while each of them bring a different skill set to the table, because of injuries and Covid infections, they have not been able to nail down a spot on a consistent basis this season.   Klopp has been highly reluctant to break up his midfield core group but with the average age slowly creeping up, Barnes believes it is time to look at a younger option that being the highly rated Brighton star.         Metro via BonusCodeBets reported the club legend as saying:   “From a Liverpool perspective, it would be lovely to Yves Bissouma playing at Anfield.   ‘If you look at the age of Liverpool’s midfielders, a lot of them are aged 30 or older, Yves is young and would be an excellent signing for the club.   Bissouma has certainly sprung to prominence and improved his game under the tutelage of the impressive Graham Potter and has been linked to Liverpool on more than one occasion.   Barnes has no issue if Bissouma is comfortable at his current club but says if he wants to make the step up, he should look beyond Aston Villa and Newcastle who have also been mentioned as possible destinations.     “As to whether Bissouma wants to leave Brighton right now and sign for another team in a relegation dog fight, then that’s up to him.   ‘He must decide what is right for himself, but the quality he possesses at this stage of his career – he should be aiming higher [than Aston Villa or Newcastle].   "Newcastle is a great club, but if you ask people Liverpool or Newcastle, then it’s a no brainer [you’d pick Liverpool].   ‘If you wanted to create a template for the ideal Liverpool central midfielder, Bissouma fits it perfectly.’   The Reds have been linked to Youri Tielemans and Jude Bellingham in recent times but Barnes was adamant that Bissouma is the more natural fit.   “Tielemans is a very good hardworking midfielder, but if you look at the nature of what Liverpool midfielders do, in terms of their physicality and the ability to get up and down the field, that isn’t necessarily what Tielemans does.   “Youri is excellent in possession and is perhaps maybe more Manchester City’s style of player. Yves Bissouma would suit the Liverpool style more than Tielemans would. The same as he would with Jude Bellingham.   ‘All three are excellent players though, Liverpool wouldn’t be doing wrong by signing any of them.”
