Other football - 2020/21

Recommended Posts

Thought I create a new thread as per a discussion in the previous thread. 

 

The Champions League summer tournament is nearly finished and people are already discussing our pre-season in last season’s thread. I believe a new one is required.

 

Any and all teams discussed in here are not as good as compared to the current champions.

Allegedly we start at West Ham. Hopefully that means we finish at Anfield.

Someone already said City and united both at home on the same weekend! All the 'W' clubs at home too? Nah, dont think so.

I didn’t read it any detail, just looked for the important bit (ie us).

 

I just hope we’re at home last game of season.

We'll have the league wrapped up before then pal.


Hopefully. As long as we get the trophy at Anfield and I’m there for it, I’ll allow alternatives.

Easier for Altrincham fan Anthony Taylor to walk to the grounds then.

Have these 'leaked' fixtures ever turned out to be the actual ones?

 

Scheduling two teams from the same city at home never happen, even taking into account there'll be no fans.

 

Man Utd v Arsenal on the opening day? Bollocks. Granted, it's only the Mancs v a midtable team now, but still.

We’ll be alright as long as we top up the squad. With that said, no team has ever accrued 90+ points in three consecutive seasons, so it’s essential that we don’t drop off too much and gift wrap someone else a low-scoring title.

 

Man Utd will do well and would probably be my pick for second assuming they keep getting penalties every other time they reach the opposition penalty box, although Chelsea will run them close - both should be on or around the 80 point mark and probably within 10 points of the top.

 

City have shit themselves mentally and barring a spending spree of previously unseen proportions, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them battling it out with Spurs and Arsenal for fourth / fifth / sixth.

For those of you complaining about the design of our new Nike kits, this is what Adidas have cooked up for Man Utd's 3rd kit.

That's one of the worst kits I've seen.

Fuck me! They'll be doing another half time kit swap like they did at Southampton some years back when they're 3 down in a game wearing that!

They have no money, they had to cook the books with the swap deal they did, there’s no chance they’re in for anybody unless they manage to sell some of their mistakes and nobody is going to be offering anywhere near market value for any of theirs due to knowing the above.

 

Basket case of a club at the minute and I think they’ll have a real fallow period whist they try and sort their shit out.

Given his contract, Gini is a maybe.

 

They’ve nowhere near enough money for VVD.

We played Arsenal on the opening day a few years back. 

 

I think the only rule regarding big teams is that you can't have two of the previous top 4 playing each other, but one of those teams against Spurs or Arsenal will be fine.

Quite the insult to Everton when you think about it.

    • Yeah agree with a lot of that. I cannot see 'safe standing' at this club but if they do, it will only be a small section as you say and no more than 1 for 1 in my opinion. Neither can I see the club getting involved in another shit storm of publicity of forcing people out of their homes to increase the SKD and or Walton Breck and buying out the match day gold mine stores would be incredibly expensive.   To me, as I said, they could possibly jack up the SKD roof for a few more rows but you're still talking sub 3000 seats v cost of the upgrade.     The Westfallon is in the middle of a park. Unless there were building restrictions in place when they upgraded the stadium, Im still a bit surprised at how the stands are placed.   But that's the major problem with Anfield, it's hemmed in on two sides. Ive had stewards come to me on the SKD Upper first row and say they've women who are frightened by sitting on the back row being so high up and 'would I mind swapping seats' with them for the game!   It's not just the numbers, it's the sight lines people would have when you build higher and further back.
    • Great video here of himself and Messi. Taking a shot with his arse. Putting topspin on the ball like a tennis player. As a lot of his contemporaries have said, the ball obeyed him.    Poor Tevez is a bit out of his depth  
    • Yes mate, we are all dead jealous. 
    • I think the maximum we can go up to is 68,000 without extra transport links.    The problem with the railway lines near the ground is that they are freight lines for the docks which apparently already struggle to shift freight from there, they still have a massive traffic problem through Seaforth and the docks want to expand again.    Also the cost of putting in passenger signals and a couple of stations could be over £350m. Two possible stations at Utting Avenue (old Cubmoor station) and by Walton Lane police station (old Anfield and Walton station, next to the police station) could be reopened. The line could go from Lime St up past Wavertree and go through the Olive Mount tunnel.    I think that the KD stand could be done with a  few more seats on the upper tier with the possibility of more corporate boxes in between. But expanding it to the size of the main stand involves buying up the road behind. All the houses are occupied and a lot of the owners originally bought them off the club. A lot of the houses are nice old Victorian era houses in good condition.    You would basically have to offer people a lot of money over and above the value of their houses to get them to consider moving.    The difference with the road on the Main stand side was a lot were derelict, in disrepair or owned by chancer landlords who wanted megabucks and half the street had already been demolished.
