    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Just out of interest, which stupid fucking decisions do you think he’s made where the outcome is clear? I’ve doubted his logic numerous times but he’s been proven correct on every occasion.
  2. Very late to it, but Mindhunter is superb. Maybe the best made for Netflix show I’ve seen. I was very surprised at the overall quality, as well as the entertainment value. Looking forward to season two tomorrow now.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Mate, if I was as negative as you, I’d cut out the middle man and just go straight to Dignitas. If you’re not happy now, you’ll never be. Genuinely, it must be awful feeling like you do when the team and club is so strong.
  4. 1. Adrian will be the best back up keeper we’ve ever had. 2. Hoever and Brewster will establish themselves as quality squad options. 3. We’ll definitely win at least one trophy this season and possibly three. 4. City will fall short in Europe yet again. 5. Spurs will be serious title challengers. 6. The Mancs will finish outside the top six. 7. We’ll win the league. I’ll leave you to decide whether they’re silly or not.

    Not really into any of this. However, I really enjoyed the Punk documentary on Sky Arts. Check it out if you’ve not seen it yet.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I’d say the measure is another good season in the context of City’s cheating. Because let’s not pretend that any of this would be causing these levels of disquiet if they were playing by the rules. We all see our squad through the distorting prism of City’s spending and consequently unfair success, but we’re not in a position to match that. That said, I’d bet my mortgage on us finishing top two again and winning a trophy right now. I also think we’ll win the league this season. But if we don’t, I’m comfortable with that because this is the healthiest position we’ve ever been in in the club's history from my perspective (or certainly in the TV money era) and that bodes well for repeated serious assaults on the top prizes, more than which I don’t think anyone can demand. So if he does that (keeps us seriously competitive at the very top end of the scale) that’s Klopp being proven correct in my view.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I don’t understand how anyone can see this happen and not recognise the bleedin’ obvious: that it’s simply part of the package when you have Klopp as manager. He clearly favours having a leaner squad than most, just as he sees squad unity and player development as crucial elements of what he does. Furthermore, he’s now made loads of these apparently counter-intuitive calls as Liverpool manager and I can’t think of one that’s back-fired. The strategy is now obvious: we have a world class first eleven (arguably only one team in the world that’s better and that would be a fine margins call either way) and are now bringing in early the young players to develop the next world class eleven that will follow them. We therefore get to sign them cheaply and mould them alongside the players they’ll eventually replace. Put it this way, without this commitment to youth development there’s no Trent or Gomez in the team. More than that though, Brewster fucks off rather than signs that deal last year, Hoever goes elsewhere and Elliott thinks, “Yes I’m a Red, but there’s no point leaving Fulham”. Even if sone of these world class young players fail to make it here, it’s still a good strategy as it mitigates the financial risk, allows us to channel the big wages to the stars who until recently would have fucked off to Madrid or Barcelona and keeps the transfer fee kitty dry for the possibility of a one-off über-signing. I’m convinced this is the right way for us to go with Klopp in charge. Any other manager and I’d be far more anxious. Not with this guy though. I also think it helps set us up for a huge deal next summer. Financially we are positioning ourselves to be able to beat almost anyone (including City) to a very top tier signing if he comes on the market. And for me that looks like either Mbappé or, more probably, Sancho. Time will tell whether this strategy is right, but I will say this: Klopp is completely committed to it and only a fool would bet against him being correct.
  8. The Art of Architecture on Sky Arts is ace (one for Karl b). First one on Santiago Calatrava is amazing. Also enjoying Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing S2 (just very amusing and, well, nice), This Way Up (Aisling Bea & Sharon Horgan comedy/drama thing), Remarkable Places To Eat (desperately want to go to San Sebastián now) and Everybody In The Place: An Incomplete History of Britain 1984-1992 in which the artist Jeremy Deller teaches a sixth form politics class about the culture, history and politics of Britain via the medium of acid house.
  9. Thought that comment would be from Paul Ince, to be honest. Saunders makes sense though, the massive fucking dope.

    Upcoming Films

    A Scorsese film with De Niro, Pacino and Pesci and written by Steve Zallian. If it’s not brilliant it’ll be a shock.

    Harvey Elliott

    If that video was directed at Harry Kane then the lad has just gone right up in my estimations.
  13. Little bit disappointed you missed the opportunity to have a pop at Monty over your Sakho point there mate.
