Just watching Bundesliga for a change. Fans bringing their pints into the ground (plastic cups though). Nice game of football, Huntelaar looking boss. Raul looks like he could play another ten years. Nice.

 

English football has a lot to learn from Germany imo

Good strike from Sturridge. Shame, as Wigan were doing really well. Just too much of a soft underbelly. At least it looks like Fwank may have lost some teeth.

With Anelka getting sold & Drogba off to the African cup of nations in January. Should Boas not be giving Torres as much football as possible now to try and get him in some sort of form, since he's going to be needing him in January?

 

Still sitting on the bench today with Mikel now coming on.

This is exactly why the 'rent-a-quote' about the reasons above meaning he won't go are rubbish. It's crystal clear that he isn't wanted there and Sturridge continues to bang in the goals.

 

Now I've said that he will probably bloody come on and score. ha ha, who am I kidding.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's some truth that he's off in January. Strange that he hasn't kicked a ball (as of yet) since that £20m stuff hit the rags.

 

I'd expect Chelski to buy in the window if he is though, and it shouldn't be hard for them to find an improvement.

I wonder if Kenny and John Henry are regretting turning down Chelsea's offer of £38m + Sturridge in favour of a straight £50m yet.

 

My understanding is that we asked about Sturridge and were told 'no.'

I wouldn't have sold Sturridge if I knew I was getting shot of Anelka (gone) Drogba (probably gone in Summer) and Torres (gone - for the right price).

    • Sick bastard. And I'm not talking about Boorish
    • Whatever the rights and wrongs of players salaries are it's a bit fucking rich of Hancock to be whining about it when his fucking party has been slashing the NHS budget at every opportunity for years
    • Liverpool have earmarked a couple of exciting talents from the Bundesliga as Jürgen Klopp looks to boost his all-round squad depth.

      The Daily Express (via German publication Express) says that Denis Zakaria and Marcus Thurum are two players that have come to prominence this season with the duo being key figures in the fine season of Borussia Monchengladbach as they currently sit in fourth position.

      Zakaria is a Swiss international who plays in the Defensive Midfield role.

      Standing at 190cm and coming in at around 80kg, Zakaria is a physical specimen and his strengths lie in his physicality and ability to shield his opponent away from the ball.

      He also has elite endurance and is comfortable in possession.

      The 23 year-old recently spoke about his future with Man United and Bayern Munich also been linked to his services.

      “It spurs me on and gives me strength to improve further. The fact that other clubs are dealing with me shows that I perform well. 

      “But I only concentrate on Borussia. We can still achieve great things this season." 

      While it is true that Liverpool have Fabinho in the holding midfield role he has had a inconsistent campaign to date, and some competition could push the Brazilian to the level he produced in the second half of the 2018/9 campaign.

      The other name mentioned in the report is Thuram.

      The 22 year-old is the son of French legendary defender Lilian who played for Monaco, Parma, Juventus and Barcelona and is the most capped player for the French national team.  

      In direct contrast to his father, Marcus is a forward who signed for the German club last summer after previously playing for Guingamp and Sochaux in Ligue 1.

      On his arrival, Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl said : “He's a fast, robust and dangerous assailant who fits very well in our squad and we are sure he will make his way in the Bundesliga.”

      So far he has scored 10 goals in all competitions for his club this season.

      The scouting report on Thuram says that he is quick, direct and with the upper body strength to clear defenders out the way and his game has been sickened to Man United forward Anthony Martial.

      He has represented France in all the under-age levels and it is believed he is close to getting his first senior call-up.

      With the burden of the current front three at an already high level, it could be increased to unprecedented levels in what could be a cramped calendar due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

      So having a player like Thuram with significant senior experience while still being of a young age could be a smart bit of business for the Reds.
