Other football - 2020/21

Recommended Posts

I, for one, welcome our new overlords of the Beautiful Game. City & Chelsea provided a leading moral-light as protectors & guardians of footballs past (c 1992), present and future. All is as deserved and as wanted by the country’s enlightened fans, especially those wise and proactive brothers in Mancunia.

One year ago I expected us to beat City, Chelsea and any other team in the world. 

 

Now the gap from us up to City and Chelsea is so huge that it is absolutely devestating.

 

Chelsea today; the pressing, the guts, the skills, the pace - very impressive. We were just like that, then we lost it all completely. 

So much of it lies with the CB's.  It's the boring answer but the last two days have proven it. Dias and Rudiger were essential to their wins, but also essential to the work of Kante and Fernandinho, which in turn is essential to feeding the forwards.  

 

Chelsea played with five defenders and two defensive mids last night.  We have three CBs and a defensive mid out injured for the season.

You watch these Sky twats now, “ this proves that the prem is the best league in the world” whist conveniently forgetting the millions spent, and the fact that the Allardice clones plotting next season’s campaign with 37 draws I win to keep them in the league, park the bus and destroy football.

There you go Carragher in the Daily Star “ Barca and Real are desperate for the super league because they are afraid of what the Prem has to offer,”  yeah Burnley on a Wednesday night, and the ball coming back down with snow on it.

Dont know what it is with Spit. He seems particularly vocal and allegedly, the font of all knowledge on the ills of football and how to right them these last few weeks.

I completely agree. Stick VVD and Konaté / Gomez / Matip / Kabak (?) back in the side next season and watch us start smothering teams to death again. 
 

Fabinho being available in the middle and hopefully Hendo being back will be equally important. 
 

I don’t doubt we need an injection of quality to pick us back off, but I still have high hopes on what we can achieve next season.

Second or Third choice goalie at a top club is the sort of wheeze dreamed about by elite grifters everywhere. That Stuart Taylor was at Man City for years on about a million a year. A million a year to basically be a glorified training cone!

If only Brad Jones was aware he did not have to be a glorified training cone in actual matches.

This makes too much sense surely?

 

 

 

 

I'd imagine the owners of the Ataturk stadium would be pissed if that happens. They've spent a fair bit of money on stadium improvements and surrounding infrastructure, and last year's final was already moved from Istanbul to Lisbon as UEFA set up that mini tournament to get around the Covid issue.

You mean they’ve finally finished it? 


I’d assume they can move it back another season?

 

Lets face it, given the current situation and rules on travel, it would be absolutely crazy to make supporters go there.

 

They should keep moving the CL away from Istanbul until we get there again!

 

Apparently they can’t play it at Wembley because the play off finals are that weekend, but surely they could just move those to Spurs, Arsenal or West Ham?

 

If Arsenal qualify tonight, the EL should be held in the UK as well.

Why is there a conspiracy of silence around how bad Arteta and Arsenal are?

 

They are going to finish 8-10th and not qualify for Europe and have done what's expected in the Europa League.

 

Shite and he's getting such an easy ride.

How can they be confident of 25k, they don’t come out of lockdown until the 17th?

 

Surely even if they played this at another London ground or Cardiff, they could do 25k as well.
 

I see Chelsea & Leicester have only received 6250 each for the FA Cup Final at Wembley.

    • Great post, and very much my position. No real issue with FSG owning us, just wish they would let up a bit on the whole self sustaining thing and pitch a bit of their own obvious wealth into the transfer pot.
    • Trent Alexander-Arnold has expressed his delight in signing a new four-year deal.   The Liverpool right back put pen to paper on the new deal yesterday which will keep the boyhood Red at the club until 2025.   Speaking to the Official site, Trent spoke of his delight.   “I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension. So, it was a no-brainer for me. The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.    As someone who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of six, Alexander-Arnold said that the club has meant so much to him.   “I mean, it's the only club I've ever really known. So to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family. It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling."   At just 22, the footballing resume of Alexander-Arnold is glittering on a individual and team level and one that most players would be delighted with for the entirity of their career.   Reflecting on what he has achieved to this point, the League and European Champion takes nothing for granted.   “I've achieved so many dreams and goals that I never actually thought I would. I live the dream every day really.   "Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”   Top clubs are meticulous in the planning for the next phase, and careful to not being caught out when the end of the cycle comes.   Speculation has begun over who may succeed Jordan Henderson as the next captain and despite being so young himself, Alexander-Arnold says that he is trying to impart some of his knowledge that he has learnt from his senior teammates onto the next generation.   “I've been around some amazing leaders. Hendo Millie and Virg were definitely up there as the three best that I've been in and around. I'm privileged to be able to pick up things and learn things from them. They're all different leaders in their own way – some lead by their actions and some by their words. But at the end of the day, leadership is leadership.   “I think I've been in and around the lads enough time now to not see myself as a young player. Someone who's a mature lad, capable of fulfilling those roles and being a captain without necessarily having the armband on your arm is something that I've always wanted to try to be.    “So just being a role model for the younger players, trying to keep them on the right path and being there for encouragement when they need that. Just mentoring, I'd say – kind of what like Hendo and Millie were doing to me when I was a bit younger. Then just kind of nurturing them into young men that are capable of achieving anything really.”     Reflecting on a difficult past season, Alexander-Arnold said that despite no silverware, securing Champions League football was seen as a worthy achievement.   However winning honours is their sole focus for the 2021/22 season.   “The previous seasons we were there with silverware and we were on top of the world – world champions, Premier League champions, we had everything under the belt.   "Then to be kind of brought back down to earth last season with a lot of road bumps in the way, speed bumps on the journey, we overcame them. It kind of felt like a little bit of an achievement to secure top four in the way that it was looking throughout the season at certain points.   “We have our sights set on trophies, that's our aim. It's no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.   "We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we'll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can."

    • Varane hasn’t quite lived up to his initial promise but he’s still a better defender than the alternatives, so he’ll improve them for sure. Most would take him over Gomez. I probably wouldn’t swap them right this minute but for a ‘fantasy’ team, Varane would get the nod alongside Virge.
