I thought he took the odd one too. Definitely remember him missing one.


Vaguely remember him missing a few that season he kept hitting the post.

These rumours about our top players always seem to circulate towards the end of successful seasons where we are on the verge of winning even more trophies. Funny that,you'd think people were trying to de-stabilise our tremendous team spirit and were jealous of us eclipsing teams with mega rich backers. Me,I'm much less cynical NOT!

That fucking season! Nobody could score; everyone kept hitting the woodwork; penalty experts like Luis, Stevie and Dirk started missing them; shit goalkeepers kept having worldies; and every cunt would score in the 87th minute with their first shot on target.

The Bundesliga is the Scottish Premiership with umlauts and better beer. The complete lack of competitiveness there means Bayern are even struggling to raise their game in Europe, which is ironic given that they ruined their own league by buying their rivals’ best players every year. No way is Sadio heading there.

Sadly, I could see him going to Bayern. We seem to have put all our eggs in the Mo contract basket, meanwhile Mané is finding great form, and there's no word of him renewing, or the club even pushing for it.

 

If Bayern look to play him centrally, and make him their main man, that'd be very tempting. Last big contract, guaranteed league titles, there's not much of a downside for the player.

Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has revealed how he rejected several offers from Bayern Munich to leave Anfield as he called on his players to make a final push to create a “special season”.

Klopp says Bayern have regularly tried to lure him during his coaching career - including while at Liverpool - but he declined because the challenge of leading the strongest, most wealthy club in Germany is less attractive than the ‘journey’ he has embarked upon at Anfield.

Players leaving more frequently on free transfers has really complicated the situation. Normally, you would say one of Salah or Mane are getting sold, as it's probably unrealistic financially and strategically to extend both at a number they deserve, but then there's the factor that one or both might want to stay but not extend so they can get more wages later at another club. Creates another variable. It's difficult to try to predict what will happen.

Thought he has a good game yesterday, gutted  he didn’t score his pen. 
 

It was a bit in the shoot out, while all the players were linked together on the half way line, he was anxiously pacing behind them all like he was taking every kick.

Love it. I was saving the match thread for later so hadn’t got round to it yet.

 

I’ll put it here so anyone else who hasn’t seen the match thread yet  can see it here.

I said it last week when mbappe decided to stay with Qatar. Watch on Friday morning one of Salah or mane get linked with Madrid. Well it looks like today's comments means it'll be mane. And Salah is aiming to do an mbappe.

Be hard to replace.

 

For me was the catalyst to things starting to go our way. We suddenly looked dangerous with him in the team.

 

So reliable, you can buy talent but it often comes injury prone.

    • A lot of people don’t understand football, so I’m sure it will.
    • Zahawi was making cash off oil too :     Tory minister Nadhim Zahawi pockets fortune from second job at oil company
    • Gerrard in this team would make Kevin De Bruyne look like a bum. He'd be the best player in the league by a mile.   Tactical discipline wouldn't be a problem for him because he wouldn't be playing for a defensively obsessed manager. I get where the whole "Gerrard isn't tactically disciplined" thing comes from, its because Rafa spoonfed that to people off the record for years.   Stevie was too swashbuckling to play centre mid in his system, but he'd be unreal playing in Klopp's.   Another factor in Gerrard's supposed tactical weakness was that he was often playing in shit teams where he needed to force the issue because nobody else would be capable of it. No point him sitting midfield and watching nothing happen in front of him. Of course he's not going to do that. Doesn't mean he has no tactical discipline, it just means he's a winner.   He played right back and was brilliant. He played holding midfielder and was brilliant. He played right midfield and was brilliant. He's since become a manager who builds his teams on being organised and defensively sound.   Gerrard in a midfield with Fabinho and either Thiago or Hendo would be un-fucking-believable.   And besides, there'd be nothing stopping us going with the same 4-2-3-1 he played in when he was just behind Torres.   If I could add any player from our history to this current team it's Gerrard. Even ahead of Suarez, and you know how much I love Suarez.
    • he newly appointed Chancellor and Warwickshire MP Nadhim Zahawi has created a sprawling £100 million property portfolio, along with his wife and their companies, the Mirror has reported. Mr Zahawi, who represents Stratford-upon-Avon, previously worked as Education Secretary, and before that rose to prominence as vaccine minister, helping to deliver the Government's rollout of the jab. © PA Nadhim Zahawi leaving 10 Downing Street following the resignation of Rishi Sunak yesterday His new role comes following the resignation of Rishi Sunak who quit as Chancellor having lost confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Mr Zahawi came to the UK aged nine after being born in Iraq to a Kurdish family, who fled the regime of Saddam Hussein.   Believed to be one of the richest politicians in the House of Commons, estimates of his net worth range from £30 million to £100 million. He has refused to confirm the amount, previously telling the Telegraph: "I've been very lucky in life." He helped found the polling company YouGov and along with his wife, owns a huge property empire, which includes a country home and stables, a £20 million London townhouse, a number of high-street properties and an industrial estate. A Mirror investigation previously found that more than half were purchased while Mr Zahawi was serving as a Government minister. Seven of the properties bought for over £10 million are mortgage-free, and two more were partially-funded by £10 million loans from Mr Zahawi's wife Lana. Read more: Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi: Everything you need to know about the Warwickshire MP The Zahawis personally own five residential properties, worth at least £17 million - three in London, one in Warwickshire (where his constituency is) and one in Dubai. The home near Warwick, a country house with stables, was bought for £875,000 in 2011. One of Mr Zahawi's firms purchased the £3.5 million Chunnel industrial estate in Ashford Kent, by the Eurotunnel train station, and his wife Lana Zahawi now owns two superstores, including a £6.3 million plot home to a giant Co-op and car park in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Another company controlled by Mr Zahawi owns £18 million worth of land containing an Asda megastore in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. Since it was bought four years ago, its value has increased by £1.25 million. There is no suggestion that he has breached the Ministerial Code. In 2013 it was reported that Mr Zahawi had claimed the livery's £5822.27 heating bill on expenses, which he said he had done by mistake and repaid. At the time he posted a statement on his website saying: " Since last week's coverage of my energy bills I have been looking into them further and can confirm that all claims for heating fuel relate purely to my second home. " However I have made a mistake with my electricity claims. On investigation I have discovered that the electricity supply for a mobile home located in the stable yard and for the stables themselves was linked to my house. " Whilst a meter was installed in the stable yard I have only been receiving one bill, it was wrong to assume I was receiving two and to have not checked this sooner. I am mortified by this mistake and apologise unreservedly for it. " I will obviously be paying back any money that was wrongly claimed immediately and have already contacted IPSA [Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority] regarding the correct procedure."
