 the fullbacks are even.

They are even in the sense that one team has a kid who has looked good and another fella out of position and we have a couple blokes who have set records the last two years. That kind of even.

How many of their players get into our 11? Maybe 4, tops 5. And 1 of those we'll hopefully be poaching. We should be better all over the pitch other than centre forward & possibly midfield, but that is debatable. They didn't make us break a sweat last season.

It's actually an interesting question, but I reckon you're underestimating Bayern here.

 

Liverpool certs: Alisson, van Dijk, Salah, Mane

Bayern certs: Alaba, Thiago, Lewandowski

 

I think you could argue about the rest. I'd have it:

 

Alisson

 

TAA  Alaba  van Dijk  Davies

 

Fabinho  Thiago

 

Salah  Muller  Mane

 

Lewandowski

 

but I'm sure a Bayern fan would find a way to get Kimmich in there, either for TAA or Fabinho.

 

It's very close, is my point. It's a shame we got unlucky against Atletico. I would have loved to see a final between Liverpool and Bayern this season.

While I would like that to be true...Lyon were 7th in Ligue 1. 7th. In the French league.

City will hammer Lyon like they do at home in the PL. This Lyon side is poor, bad they are not very good at the back. 


Remember the Alam...  ....sorry, remember Norwich.

Alaba has been a career full-back, though. I don't buy that at age 28 he has suddenly turned into a world class centre back- if Bayern do have a weakness its certainly at the back, where we look far stronger. Would take Gomez all day long. The rest I think I agree with - Muller however is very debatable. He has been pretty average for going on 4 seasons now; even this season he's averaging half the number of goals as his mid-00s peak. Him taking that position is probably more a reflection of our lack of world class options in that area - to be honest, I'd probably prefer Firmino there to him but obviously Muller has had a trophy laden career.

Davies

 

The guy has played what 30 games at the top level. Way too much of a stretch.

 

He doesn't get in ahead of a fella who has chalked up 25 assists in the last two years and captains his country.

Comparing Davies to Robertson is unfair. Robertson has two and a half seasons of consistent, high level play that Davies hasn't had time to match. Talent-wise though, I'd take Davies over any left back right now. I'm also biased, but he's just so good. He just runs through entire teams.

They cant be serious, can they?! It's like Ian Dowie when he used to get manager jobs in England. Only Dowie was a shit footballer as well as an ugly fucker.

Barca have become a joke. The problem starts with the idiots right at the top making the decisions. Rubbish managerial appointments, shocking transfer policy. They are in a whole heap of shite and nothing less than a total change at the top will stop the decline.

    • since vvd came into the team, we changed the goalkeeper, established a right back (trent had started just 10 premier league games prior to vvd joining and wasn't a right back prior to the 1st team) , brought in robbo (I know we had bought him by then, but he only got in the team once vvd arrived) and added fabinho. The only consistent is we don't have a new centre back alongside as we had the 2 we have now plus lovren and klavan. it just illustrates the shite lengths he is going to at the moment to undermine us. it's up for everyone to decide for themselves why that is, for me it started after his suspension. 
    • I still think VAR is a very useful tool, but the goons in charge of using it are the biggest problem in combination with rules that complicate matters needlessly. When England didn't have a single official at the last World Cup, that should have told the authorities that refereeing at the highest level in this country needed a shake-up because we had a whole raft of Mike Rileys, with one or two trying to be the new Howard Webb.   The examples in rugby and cricket often get cited for how well they work. I'm sure it's not foolproof and 100% accurate in those sports, but there can't be too many instances of the officials getting the decision-making spectacularly wrong when they've had the use of technology, purely because they use the technology to try and inprove their decision-making.   As difficult as it might be for them, it really needs for former players to be more involved in the refereeing process because all the current perspectives come from officials sat in a committee room somewhere, many of whom have never even played the game, and some of whom that have administrative experience but no really affinity for the sport. If these former players can really understand the laws of the game as they currently are, then they can provide some input based on their experiences as to where changes could be made.
    • Despite them being FC class and dignity a few of them heard wrongly that he worked in Iceland in Old Swan so filmed themselves waiting for him outside saying they were going to do him in.   Quite funny really as he worked with my mate in a prison so they looked stupid hanging round for hours waiting for him to turn up.   He said he couldn't go out for six months because he kept getting threatened and almost lost his job as he had been accused of inciting hatred before the game and then trying to fight with Sevilla fans. Even though one of them grabbed his teenage son and stole his seat which they had tickets for. They had won 2 tickets in a ballot even before we had played the Mancs. It was just pure luck that Liverpool got there and they had a ticket for the final when the stadium only held about 30k, half of which were made available to season ticket holders.    One Evertonian I know started tweeting at the time that Liverpool fans were causing trouble again and bunking in just and all of them believed it straight away. 
    • Yeah. Bobby and Yoko are twinsies.
    • give it a few months, if the vvd injury has really hurt us, he will be singing you lost the league at goodison with the rest of them.
