    New European super league?

    What I meant is that it's the same 12 or so clubs at the business end of the Champions League.

    New European super league?

    As much as I'd love to piss off all the horrible bastards out there, I don't like this at all. I actually would prefer if some really historic clubs like Ajax, Benfica, Celtic or some of those legendary Eastern European teams became forces again. I don't like the current format where it is pretty much the same 12 teams in the quarter final every year. It's a rarity that countries like Hungary and Bulgaria qualify anyone these days. They need to find a way of spreading the wealth not keeping it in the hands of the same lucky few. I know say Rangers and Celtic, or Levski Sofia say are shit but I'd much rather play them in a group game than the 4th team of Spain.

    Carra is definitely not a Blue these days. What he is though is a pundit trying to not be seen as pro-Liverpool to the detriment of his opinion. Neville is a good pundit imo and far more balanced than Carra. His opinions on us now without Virgil are vintage him. Bluster and bullshit are his trademark to punditry. If we lost Ali for say 2 months, then we are in a bad way because we will conceed about two goals in every game, so no matter how good the rest of the lads are, it's a big ask. Right now, we are still a team with the best goalie in the world and a team of world class players. City will lose players and so will other teams. With no crowds in stadiums, I actually think if ever there was a year of some madcap results it's this year. West Ham beating Leicester and coming from 3-0 down to Spurs. City losing 5-2 to Leicester. Us losing to Villa 7-2. United losing 6-1 and 3-1 in their two home games. It will be close but I still think we're the best team by a distance.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    No problem him playing for England. Good luck to him playing for them because I just like seeing Trent or Hendo back safe and sound from tournaments and having that gobshite in goal makes it happen a bit sooner. As much as I hate the fucker, I don't want to be joined in hating him by EDL loving, Brexit supporting knobs from Burnley or Tory loving daily mail reading beauts from Reading. He's my punchbag in the gym not theres. Let them turn on a nice lad like Rashford when he misses a peno against Italy. That's more their style.

    Where do we go from here?

    Said it to a few bluenoses today. If they care about the greater good of society, then football should be stopped for the next 8-9 months.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    The Italians know great players in every position but boy do they know great goalkeepers and defenders. Taking aside my fury about what he did to Virgil, the incident showed why he is such a poor goalkeeper with incredibly poor decision making skills. He should have been sent off with his team 1-0 down and it wasn't like it was a clear cut scoring opportunity for Virgil (I doubt he would have called it being offside). He does that in a EC quarter final against Holland or Germany and England are up shit creek as they would be 1-0 down with ten men. I don't care about England but if Southgate has any intelligence, this ends his England career. Not exactly any Shiltons or Clemences out there, but Pope, Ramsdale and Henderson are superior to this dangerous stupid knobhead.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Think he was out 7 months. From my undersranding of articles I've read technology seems to be making recovery easier and shorter for players. I would say Virgil is similar to Zlatan in that he is a very physically powerful player so I've no doubt his recovery will be very good also.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Might need to offer them more if they are in the mix in the Bundesliga or chasing a champions league place. He looks class and if he is even worth 5 points to us in the second part of the season, he is worth it.

    It will be fine margins this season. A lot of teams like Burnley, Palace and Leeds will have a right good go at them and they will lose at places they wouldn't have 2-3 years ago. I think Pep is a very intense type and if they go on a bad run, he could have a meltdown and walk. My gut tells me they get about 82-87 points though because they have enough quality to smash most teams. I actually still think we are much the better team regardless of Virgil being out for probably the rest of the season. Laporte walks into our team and Aguero would as well ahead of current Bobby (to be fair even Bob at his best isn't as good as Aguero). De Bruyne would walk into pretty much every team but I would put Thiago on his level. Fabinho, Hendo and Gini are superior to Rodri and current day Fernandinho. Don't know much about their new signings so they could be the next Laporte and Sane and make a huge difference to be fair. I can't think of many players they have that I'm blown away by. Sterling is very good but nowhere near our lads. Our full backs are far superior. To be fair they probably have a competent number 2 goalkeeper so that's a big leveller right now.

    City will have injuries as well. Hopefully nothing like Virgil though. Their three best players are incredible in De Bruyne, Laporte and Aguero. All are injured on a regular basis. Ederson isn't as good as he used to be. Their new centre half is an unknown. They have a few other really good players like Bernardo Silva but not sure I'd want him beside me in the trenches. They look shaky and the orcs of Burnley etc will have a proper go at them let alone the likes of Zaha or Grealish. If Arsenal were properly on it yesterday,they could have won.

    If he is as good as they say, then it's a deal. I think if we are in a title race come January (we will be unless Ali and one of Mo or Sadio is out for months), then it makes sense to get it done. If we're chasing top 4, then the extra 20-25 million makes sense. If we're completely fucked and have no hope of anything, then use January to get him next summer and build a new generation of mentality monsters.
