Who do we think Barca will go for? The Chubby Hamster?

They tend to pick lower profile managers for some reason or ex-players.

 

What's Puyol up to these days?

If they're smart, they'll go for the fella with the beard at Wolves. Comes with an agent who will help sign talented players and will get them playing again

 

As they're not smart, they will go with another flatter to deceive type coach like Poch or Sarri.

They're waiting for Iniesta, is it? Expected to hire another nobody for next season.

 

Crazy...

Didnt they make a play for Xavi not long ago, as well? I think they just throw a dart at a board or pin the tail on the donkey and take a punt. I dont follow Spanish football but the guy who's about to be sacked, Id never heard of him before.

 

It's a bit like Akinfenwa suddenly being handed the Liverpool manager's job. There again, big Aki would probably make a better fist of it!

Griezemann is on €750k a week!?!?!

French minimum wage. We do spend a lot on (good) food, wine and 7 weeks a year vacations, and subscription to this site. We clearly  need money.

Sorry, maybe it's Xavi I'm thinking of...

Either way, the La Liga cycle of dominance in the CL is over. Given the current financial situation, it couldn’t have come at a worse time.

Didn’t Poch say he’d never manage them because of Espanyol hence the reason he was always linked to Real.


Think so but easier to manage them now Espanyol have been relegated.

Both of them are just like rival soap operas. Every time Madrid win the CL Barcelona sack their manager or make a massive statement signing to appease their knobhead fans. Both sets of fans are just whiney over entitled twats who just want star players rather than letting a manager come in and change everything from the bottom up. Klopp would never get any time at either place to do what he did here. 

 

When Barcelona were winning loads Real were the same. That La Liga show on Sky used to do my head in, Guillem Ballbag just talking about every star player being linked with the both of them and who was going to sign who. Then about ten minutes about tge other 18 clubs in the league. 

 

Like Eastenders having shitter ratings than Coronation Street so they go out and get some star in or have more stupid over dramatic storylines.

So Danny Dyer will be the new Barcelona manager?

 

Wenger would do my head in. I’ve always had a soft spot for the whiny old cunt and I’d quite like to see him go a couple more years winning some stuff just to piss off the knobhead Arsenal fans but not at Barca.

Chilwell on the verge of joining Chelsea. Says it will be a record fee for a full back. The record is Lucas Hernandez to Bayerm for £68m.

Lampard is under massive pressure to win the title next season with all this spending. He cant say it isnt his team either. Sacked by March, I reckon.

He should go to Brest, ligue 1, nice place to live. 

Thought my chance to ramble on about the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk had finally come 40 years after leaving school, but decided to check in case I was making an idiot of myself , and sure enough Brest it is a city in Belarus with the same name,

I thought they were just relaxing FFP, are they completely dropping it?

    • Aren't the board a gang of mingebags who would make FSG look like Floyd Mayweather?   Cant see him being there and not falling out with them. 
    • Saturday Jan 16:   Reports today that Gini has turned down our contract offer. Seems pretty certain he’s going now. I’m not happy about it and I can’t understand the logic at all. Why are we allowing him to walk away for nothing rather than give him the kind of salary that he’s earned?   Maybe I’m over simplifying it but giving him a four year contract and then selling him in two years still has to be better financially than allowing him to walk away for fuck all now? Especially as we’ll need to buy a replacement. Unless they’re under the illusion that Naby fucking Keita is finally going to come good? Please God don’t let them be under that illusion.   I hear the arguments as to why we shouldn’t give him what he wants, but look at it this way. Imagine the state we’d have been in this season if he’d left last summer, which he would have done if Barca had any money. We’re in a bad enough state as it is, but without Gini? *shudders*   So we don’t pay him because he’s 30 soon and we let him leave for nothing. Then what? We’ve got fuck all money to go out and buy a replacement because whatever cash we do have will be needed on another centre half and probably another forward. How are we replacing him?   Klopp and Edwards have earned our trust with how they’ve handled things over the last few years, but this feels different, not least because I suspect if Klopp had the choice he’d want Gini to stay. I don’t like this at all, it concerns me greatly but we have no choice but to just hope they know what they’re doing.   Sunday Jan 17:   L 0 Man United 0. Shite. At least part of it was. A lot of it was fine, good even. But when there’s nothing at the end of it then it doesn’t really count for much. We had all of the ball and they had the clearest chances. It shouldn’t be that way but this is us at the moment.    West Brom, Newcastle, Southampton, they all had hardly any of the ball but they all hd good chances. And it’s not the chances we’ve given up that concerns me as it’s not easy to go through a game against PL opposition and restrict them to no clear chances, unless you’re playing us, so I’m not concerned that Pogba and Fernandez had clear chances. I’m just completely dispirited that we didn’t have any of our own.   Actually that’s not strictly true. We had chances but they didn’t look like clear ones because the finishing was fucking risible. What was Firmino doing? He was all over the place today. Usually you have to put a gun to his head to get him to take a shot as he always wants to pass. Today he had a glorious situation where he could have rolled Robbo in and instead he shot. Badly.   His choice of pass was abysmal too. It’s like he’s lost the capacity to make any right decisions. Then you’ve got Sadio, who looks great until he gets in the box. And Mo, who’s just been fucking woeful since his angry two goal cameo at Palace after he’d been dropped for that interview with AS.   I’m depressed. There’s fuck all to do except watch the footy and that’s just too stressful now. There’s no enjoyment in this at all. Just a helplessness that the lads are struggling and need us and there’s nothing we can do for them.    Today brought that home more than anything. This should have been our moment to lord it over United. We’ve waited years for this. Decades in fact. All the shit they’ve thrown our way and now that we’re finally back on our perch we can’t stick it to them because the stadiums are empty. I know there are more important things going on in the world and people are dying. That doesn’t really make this any less distressing though.   By the time we’re back in the ground the moment to celebrate and revel in it will have long gone and there’s now the possibility that it might be United taking the title from us. What kind of sick fucking joke is this?    If we have to relinquish the title then it better be to City, because if it’s to anyone else that’s going to be the bitterest of pills to swallow.    And the officiating today was a fucking disgrace. Blowing up six seconds early because Mané was clean through? You’re never going to convince me that wasn’t a deliberate act to ensure we didn’t score. I don’t know why Tierney didn’t want us to score, I just know he clearly didn’t because that was just not a normal thing to do.   Not that we’ll say anything about it. We’re the biggest pushovers in football. You can do what you like to LFC because the only people who’ll say anything are the fans. Look at the lack of free-kicks Salah gets. He isn’t in the top 100 most fouled players this season and I saw something today saying that last season he wasn’t in the top 300 and actually ranked 16th on his own team!! 15 of our players were fouled more than Salah? Fuck off.   Why has no-one mentioned this? I don’t understand. I don’t know why Klopp has never had those stats quoted to him and asked for his thoughts about it. I don’t understand why it hasn’t been written about. I mean Christ, the Athletic can churn out 10,000 words on a new security guard farting at Melwood but they haven’t done an in depth piece on this?

    • I can only comment from 96 onwards really. 96 really stung. I was only young but I remember being so excited about that final and felt so deflated at the final whistle. 07 was gutting too after the high of 05.    I think its 18 though because it was yet another near miss under Klopp and the Salah injury and Karius fuck ups made me convinced we were cursed. 
    • I voted Milan in 07 because I went and the journey home was miserable because that was a game we should have won.   I almost went with Sevilla though because losing that tarnished everything that went before it. Beating United, the Dortmund comeback.... counts for nothing because we blew it in the final.    The Madrid defeat really hurt and I'd have 100% picked that if it wasn't for us winning it a year later. I think that loss was probably the reason we won it a year later so I don't look back on that defeat in the same way I did.   Another one that I often think about was the Chelsea FA Cup one. I'm convinced that Big Andy's header was over the line and if that had been given we'd have won that game as we had all the momentum. Would have been nice for Kenny to do a cup double before FSG sent him packing.
