Strange choice of food.


That Delia’s for you. £10m is obviously a soggy bottom.

You do realise there's this thing called Covid 19? Sort of damaged peoples finances? And neither of us have any idea how much City will be spending this summer - I'm just saying it's possible.

The gossip pages will have you believe that they’re also in for Koulibaly, Lautaro Martinez and Joao Felix

 

they really don’t give a fuck now

How’s this Olympiakos left back, Konstantinos Tsimikas, looked against Wolves?

Undoubtedly better than Lewis but the way he's mentioned in these articles, he just sounds like a throwaway name to make it seem like we'd buy someone else. It's not said whether he'd want to come be a backup or what his price is.

Hope we sign someone soon for stupid money before our old friend Rashid has an aneurysm. Poor lads on the brink going by his twitter.com posts 

He's fucking barmy on there. Slagging FSG for dropping a "super successful Peter Moore", yet only a couple of months ago he was calling Moore an idiot and enabler of FSG not investing. Man has about 6 different personalities.

If Coutinho ends up at another PL club this summer I will be devestated. Bring him back, he will be perfect for us.

I don't know if it would be in his best interest to come back. He's been at his best when he's been his team's best player and can take a million touches and shoot on sight. We're too good for that now. Realistically, he should go somewhere where he can have a free role and enjoy his football. That's not here.

It clearly hasn't wiped every teams transfer funds out, except Liverpool.  Who also managed to lose their budget last year on contract renewels.

 

An excuse last heard under hicks and Gillette.

So they sold to buy?

 

Nope, city aren't having to sell or else leaving their manager short again. 

 

Thank god they've done away with the five subs rule.  Great news for small clubs who have no quality on the bench and Liverpool who decide you don't need one.

Oh no, definitely not.

So their next business is Stones and Otamendi out and Koulibaly in?

God knows but one thing we do know for sure is a top premier league team that goes deep in the CL isn't having money pumped in just cause they can spend 30m or so.

To paraphrase the Bee Gees:

 

How deep have they gone?

Deep enough to pocket a lot of money every year, just like us.

Olympiakos right back is Norwegian, the worst full back you can imagine, even worse than Finnan when it comes to defending his back post.  I think he is their captain as well, for that Tsimikas sake I hope he is better than his captain.

    • While I'd be happy for us to bin him I'd be happy for us bin AOC as well. It appears Wijnaldum is leaving, and Milner will too.   So we'd be left needing to sign at least two central midfielders next year.    I guess ideally Wijnaldum would end up signing a new deal so at least we'd be left with -   Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum and Jones.
    • Replay clearly showed it was onside because Gomez hadn’t held the line and had dropped back a yard. Bit let’s not mention that, eh?   People still not understanding that second choice keepers are second choice for a reason.
    • That would be a possible career ending muscle strain to Sturridge    Win next week and Atlanta can beat Ajax and suddenly it’s a 6 point gap so you’d like to think Jurgen can then shuffle the team around 
    • Liverpool got their European campaign off to a winning start with a professional 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff arena on Wednesday evening.

      It has been a very difficult last few days for anyone closely associated with the club in the aftermath of losing defensive lynchpin Virgil Van Dijk for the season due to a incredibly reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

      The anger of Jurgen Klopp and Gini Wijnaldum was still clearly evident in the lead-up to this fixture, but as soon as they took to the pitch, the number one focus was claiming the three points.

      The winning goal came with a stroke of good fortune with Sadio Mane’s cross deflected by Argentine defender Nicolas Tagliafico into his own net ten minutes from the half time break.

      Speaking after the match per the Official site, the manager was honest in his assessment of the footballing quality on display, but thrilled with the end result.

      “This situation is pretty much the picture of the game, so it was not the most easy-on-the-eye performance from both teams, I would say. Both teams can play better football. 

      “But especially in this competition when you play away, a lot of difficulties, pretty much the medical department made the line-up and then you have to win the game – and that's what the boys did. I think that was deserved, even when we had to clear one ball from the line and when they hit the post. 

      “Of course they had their moments but apart from that, we were pretty dominant on a difficult pitch for both teams. I think everybody knows that Ajax is usually a brilliant football team but tonight it was really tricky, the passing was difficult, so you could see that. But we won the game and I'm completely fine."

      As well as the loss of Van Dijk, the Reds were dealt a further blow with Joel Matip ruled out meaning that the manager had to turn to Fabinho who once again filled in ably in the heart of the defence.

      The manager was delighted with performance of the versatile Brazilian who produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny former Southampton star Dusan Tadic.  

      “Look, in our situation it helps. Of course, was there pressure on the situation? Yes, it’s clear for the two in the back there, 100 per cent. First game together. Fabinho can play the position, he likes playing it actually.

      “If I would have asked him to play right-back I don’t think he would enjoy it as much as he’s enjoying the centre-half position. In our situation in the moment we have to keep those boys fit and then they can of course help us a lot. I’m not surprised he [Fabinho] plays well in the position otherwise we would have thought about a different solution, even when that would have been properly tricky. 

      “I’m really pleased for tonight, pleased for him, yes it gave him confidence, for sure helped us. These situations [goalline clearances], Millie had last season one against Bournemouth, which was a massive one. That tonight was a massive one. And so he had not only because of this a big hand in this victory tonight.”

      Klopp had no reservations in taking off the front three just before the hour mark and felt that their replacements in Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri all had a impact.

      “All three who came on are, first, in a really good shape, fresh in a tricky, difficult game on a difficult pitch. 

      “That helps a lot and you saw they helped a lot. Shaq won deflections, which is pretty special.Taki in both directions, incredible between the lines. And Diogo is a machine so he can punish opponents in one-on-one situations. We had these moments, we didn’t finish them off, unfortunately.”

      “But it’s completely fine, it was important for them. Now we started the group, now we have to concentrate on the league again and then Midtjylland is waiting after that.”
