The question should be where the fuck is Trent to expose the keeper like that?

I just meant that little kick at the end. Looks like he's doing the Charelston.

I think he's just going 'ah fuck!' then sees Fabinho come to the rescue.

Adrian is very much a person that lives in the moment. That's why he's completely reckless, impulsive but probably a fun guy to be around (Just not in a professional football match).

I'm not in the slightest surprised at his performance at cb, he's going to cover for virg very well. He's an absolute fantastic player, love him, top quality player.

The only 2 clean sheets we've kept this season have been with Fabinho at centre back. Coincidence? I think not. 

I’m not surprised that he’s been so good - he was great against Bayern away when Van Dijk was suspended (snuffed out Lewandowski en route to another clean sheet!). Now, I’m not suggesting he’s a better defender than VVD because I don’t think anyone currently playing the game is, but there have been signs that he is potentially a world class centre back in his own right.

 

This isn’t a fish out of water situation, because he only moved to midfield in 2015. Admittedly he was primarily a right-back before then, but I think he’s obviously just a brilliant defensive player across several positions.

He's a great defender, full stop. Midfield, centre back, whatever. The only issue at CB is it's a horses for courses thing. I have zero concern for him against teams who want to play football, who have a lot of skill because his reading of the game is superb.

 

The test will be, does he have the physicality to stand up against the shit grocks in the league and the set piece merchants. First test against Sheffield United Saturday. If he passes that easily, I mean, there's really nothing to worry about.

Amended.

 

Simon Hughes wrote an interesting article on him today and compared to Sammer in the way he can play either roll equally well. 
 

Apparently he’s going to be asked to do more interviews, step up as a leader like Hendo, Milner, Gini, Virg & Robbo all do.

What's Adrian doing?

He’s in the moment, willing Fabinho on. Like those times your sat watching Rocky and throwing air punches at the same time he’s fighting Drago.

I suppose if he can't stop the shots himself that's something, at least.

    • You'd also have to factor in the speed that Network Rail take to get any major capital schemes approved and delivered.  You'd basically add an extra year or two (at least) to your programme, which would mean that the business case disappears.
    • Top, top Owen Brown analysis there, Dave.
    • Yep, will have took longer (14yrs) than anticipated but they will have delivered on the promise they made when they took over. Also gave us a state of the art training ground and delivered klopp who then ended our 30 yr wait for a title. All in all things are now looking very good for the future. 
        They’ve made a number of fuck ups but all in all I think FSG have done a good job and deserve some credit. 
    • After we had two points stolen from us at the end of the Brighton game I wasn’t in the best of moods and unsurprisingly had pretty much zero interest in watching any footy for the rest of that weekend. And I didn’t. I’m catching up on it now although I did know most of the results.    In fact, I knew the result of Man City v Burnley before it even kicked off. Ok, that’s not quite true as I thought it was going to be 6-0. It almost was but City had two goals disallowed and had to settle for just the 5-0.   That was on right after our game and although I wasn’t watching it, the TV was still on while I was mooching around doing other things. When I saw Burnley’s starting line up with no Nick Pope I knew there was only one outcome here, and that was a massive City win.   You see here’s the thing about Burnley. We know they can be difficult to play against for a lot of teams but they’re an absolutely perfect opponent for Man City. If Guardiola was to create the perfect team for his boys to roll over, whatever he came up with would give them more of a test than Burnley.   The Clarets have zero pace or skill in the midfield and forward positions and therefore pose no counter attacking threat. And how do you hurt Man City? Counter attacks, of course.   The only way Burnley can potentially hurt Man City is with set plays but you aren’t going to win enough of them when you’re being pushed back into your own penalty for most of the game.   So Burnley are like a big ol’ slow heavyweight boxer who no longer has a knockout punch. Putting them up against Man City is like when Homer fought for the heavyweight title against Drederick Tatum. They just stand there taking punch after punch after punch and the only hope they have is that eventually Man City might break their fist on their big dumb old head.   That never happened, and City won 5-0 against Burnley at the Etihad for the fourth time in a row. Burnley would actually just be better off forfeiting this game and taking a 3-0 loss.     Elsewhere, Everton’s stuttering title challenge *sniggers* suffered another blow as they lost at home to Leeds. It finished 1-0 but Leeds fucking battered them and could easily have won by three or four. They look good and the early season hype about them seems justified. Leeds I mean, the early season hype about Everton was fucking laughable.   Cracking game this by all accounts. I’ve only seen the MOTD highlights but I caught bits of it on the radio and they were raving about how entertaining it was. Loads of chances at both ends (but far more for Leeds) and Everton had two goals ruled out for offside by VAR. Both correct decisions and both would have been given by the linesman anyway.   My boy Bamford had one ruled out for offside too before Leeds eventually broke the deadlock when the lively Raphinha fired in from 20 yards. Even after taking the lead they kept throwing men forward looking for a second and they almost got caught on the break. That’s just all the more reason to like this team though. Leeds are fun.     This is just a teaser, click to view the full article   Please note that Round Ups are only available to website subscribers.

    • Chelsea's best signing was from Ajax I believe - Hakim Ziyech. Seriously good player. Werner needs lots of chances it seems to score but he's quick, Havertz I don't think he's really settled in so far from what I've seen. Chelsea look good but they are inconsistent.
