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?

    • 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.”
