 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.

    • Interesting.   I've been having a little think about who we could potentially target, outside the obvious and those we've already been linked with in the past. Buying from the Premier League appears highly unlikely for me, what with the astronomical fees that Premier League clubs will want in the Winter window.   I've also ruled out clubs playing in the Champions League, as they'll be less inclined to sell during the season, especially if they progress beyond the group stages.   Here are who I think could be intriguing potential targets that I like the look of:   Nikola Milenkovic at Fiorentina Kristoffer Ajer up at Celtic. I'd also consider a flyer on Connor Goldson at Rangers as he ticks the homegrown box, without the ridiculous price hike.   Milenkovic would the be most expensive of those 3, but with Fiorentina not in European competition this season, and in all likelihood they won't be again next season, the young Serb ticks a lot of boxes for me. Contracted to Florence club until the end of the 2022 season. I reckon he could be had in the region of £25-£30 million.   23 years old, but with good experience at International level having won 23 caps for Serbia already. He's a fraction taller than Virgil, so would help cover the loss of Virgil's aerial ability. He's also very comfortable playing at right back too, as he's played a number of games there for Fiorentina, so offers a touch of versatility if we ever did consider changing to a back 3, or if we ran into injury issues in that position.   Ajer is a player I've seen a fair bit of over the past couple of seasons, and one who to me needs a move to a better league to kick on. Again, he has some versatility about him, as he's very comfortable playing further up the park in a defensive midfield role.   Very composed on the ball, and another 6'5" lad who is more than decent in the air. Just 22 years old and is contracted to Celtic until the end of the 2022 season. Quite surprised that he didn't move on in the Summer, as there were plenty of rumours floating around that he wanted to move on from Celtic Park. A fee of £12-£15 million would be more than enough to secure his signature.   As for the flyer in Connor Goldson, I considered homegrown players outside the Premier League, and barring a few young potentials, Goldson ticks a number of boxes.   He's 27, so is more experienced than those above in terms of age, and has played in all tiers of the Professional Leagues in England. He's also a leader, having captained Rangers on a number of occasions.    A touch smaller than Virgil, he's still very good in the air, though he lacks the ball playing ability in comparison with the others. Again, he's contract until the end of the 2022 season, so I reckon he could be snapped up for £10 million at the most. A big plus for Goldson is his homegrown status, and I reckon he'd jump at a move down South to give any aspirations he has of playing International football that little more of a push.   I've gone off to Squawka to grab their comparison matrix to compare the domestic seasons of the 3 above, as well as Caleta-Car that Ne Moe mentioned.   https://www.squawka.com/en/comparison-matrix/?compare=hU63Iyjx1EX1vtv0ZtyK7  
    • It's like Rocky blaming Spider Rico for damaging his brain.   If his injury was that that bad he played 85 minutes and almost set up a goal with his cross. Didn't look like a player who was injured or struggling after a nasty challenge. 
    • A happy little celebration dance, because he's got 100% confidence in Fabinho preventing the goal.
    • This guy makes a pretty compelling case to take a look at Duje Caleta-Car.   Marseilles already agreed to sell him for 20m to West Ham in the summer, he rejected the move, but at least the price is reasonable. Only 24, but best of all, he's a great passer, which is something we're sure to miss with Virgil out. Also wins a good percentage of his duels, a bit of a poor man's Virgil in his style if you'll forgive the comparison.   One to keep an eye out for, maybe.
