Reading that a new cable channel has taken the rights to La Liga off Sky , and taken Serie A off BT Sport.

 

Bit pissed off that the only foreign leagues I watch anything of are disappearing & can't imagine any reduction in the package fees to compensate.

 

No idea who the new people are ( 11 - I think they are called )

As long as it doesn't affect my £6.50/month sports package, I'm happy sky are getting bummed.

Yeah read that yesterday. I do not watch the Spanish league as I find it boring but I am hacked off BT lost Serie A because I watch that a lot. There is talk this 11 company may lay off both leagues live games to Sky and BT for a wedge. If BT do not show Serie A or want more money on top of their recent increase I will be binning BT Sports off when it comes up for renewal even if it is the only place to watch Champions League this season.

Who is your package with ROTOQ , one of these streaming sites ?

Kind of. It's an IPTV package. 4 or 5 months in. Just perfect pictures all the time. FabIPTV

You can get the works (all channels) for £9.50/month. I only really watch footie live, and everything else in demand.

I’m intrigued by City’s attacking line up. I know they’ll rotate them.... but say CL final against us in Madrid.. How do you pick three from Aguero, Jesus, Sane, Sterling, and now Mahrez? Madness.

Do you have to have a smart TV for that?

With Sarri Chelsea will actually be watchable for the first time since they had Ancelotti. Really don't like that he's gone there. Hopefully Hazard and Kante are going.

Nope. Paying for sky these days has become as daft as paying for Netflix.

 

There’s options out there that offer you everything for next to nothing.

Seems sensible rather than mad to me. Get a couple of injuries or suspensions and you can still field a full strength team.

What about when they’re all fit?

If we were to mount a decent assualt on all 4 comps next season we could be looking at close to 70 games - to manage that kind of workload and be able to field teams where we don't turn to shite as soon as you take a couple of players out we need a deep squad with quality.

 

Not to mention how much genuine competition for places can really help push players to improve their level.

 

We saw last season how we were down to absolute bare bones at end of season as games game thick and fast in midfield and how in the biggest game in football ended up bringing on a slow midfielder who had been injured most of the season to replace our leading scorer.

    • Far more realistic reaction to that news. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
