    1980s combined Merseyside derby XI

    Great shouts by and large. Love Terry Mac being in there. If we do the best eleven, i'd take out stevens for neal. Put barney in for nicol - tough one that. Whelan for reid and that's an incredible team. Everton were amazing back then, but i think only big nev would make a combined team. Their next best player was Sheedy and Bob reckoned Whelan was the better player. That's an opinion to take onboard. If there was a quota of at least three blues, i'd probably go with reid as you say and ratcliffe replacing Barney or Stevie Nicol. Sheedy is very unlucky as he was a brilliant player but Barnsey gets in all day every day.

    All time Prem 11 - 442

    Gk: schmeicheal Rb: Ivanovic Cb: vidic Cb: carvalho Lb: irwin Rm: ronaldo Cm: keane Cm: gerrard Lm: bale Fw: bergkamp Fw: Henry So many great players left out. Luis, shearer, vieira, scholes, zola and ashley cole can consider themselves unlucky. I actually went with the arsenal front two because they were sublime.

    You would have had brady, whelan and sheedy back then also and stapleton up front. Jesus that's a bad decline.

    Roy Keane

    Great player, terrible manager/assistant manager. He has some awful qualities but some great ones too. Remember hearing that he did his coaching badges with local grassroots managers and coaches and they loved him and he loved it. He has that down to earth streak. As an outsider looking in, that is a horrific irish team and it must be hard for him looking around seeing that given the great irish players he played with. The flip side is that he is happy to take the wage and for his so called professionalism, he is a complete amateur at times.

    Rangers F.C. Appreciation Thread 2018-19

    Have been up there and found Celtic fans to be more pro Liverpool than anyone else. I lost family members at Hillsborough and you would be hard pressed to find a better fan group that supported us through tough times. Rangers fans did a bit also. I quite liked the rangers fans i met as well to be fair but it was kept to general football talk rather than politics and religion.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I watch a lot of academy football and there are some serious young Irish talents coming up. If I was Irish, i would be calling for them to be given a go even if they are 16 or 17. That Irish team is crap and even if they are kids they couldn't do any worse. O'Neill seems a cunt imo. Gone be with the days when Ireland used to have serious players. I like Ireland so it's sad to watch.

    I'm more of a celtic man myself but because of stevie i'd like rangers to come second and go on a lovely run in the europa league. Maybe play united when they finish third in their champions league group and end up in the europa and their fans can wreck manchester again. Stevie leaves to take the burnley job from sean dyche who replaces southgate who replaces shitcoat.

    From what i heard, souey took on the dressing room of established stars like nicol,whelan,rush,brucie and barnsie. He felt they weren't willing to change for him and in the case of some of them he was personally close to them as a player. The ruthlessness that made him such a great player led to him being a mediocre manager and overnight he ripped the heart out of the club. Those players loved the club and if it was handled properly, they would have changed their diet and training routines etc. His signings were poor but given how rushed it all was, it was inevitable.

    Yeah. You can write the script. The extra bits will be that the winning goal will be from pogba being offside with smudger smith declaring "world class players martin find space" and burnley will hit the post three times.

    Not that it really matters or anything but very sure hearing he was a few times before he went there. He has a daughter called lourdes. Even if he is a practicing catholic, I doubt stevie gives a shit about the questionable moral compass of a lot of the rangers fans. I'm sure he sees that club as a stepping stone to a big premier club and then ultimately back to us. Both celtic and rangers are huge clubs but they are small fry to a club like bournemouth these days.

    They don't have the patience as a fan group to do what the club needs. It's all hollywood stuff with them. Pogba is the epitome of them. Brilliant on a highlights reel but awful or mediocre much of the time. Zidane would be wise to steer well clear. He doesn't have a connection to them like Juve.

    Stevie is a practicing catholic isn't he. He'll need a fucking police swat team taking him to 9 o'clock mass up there. Have this image of these glaswegian grannies with walking sticks kicking off at him.
