    Part of me would like them to go a bit further. A few injuries for the start of next season would be okay with me.

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Yeah it's a tough one re the owners. They have made the right decisions off the pitch and we are the stronger for it. I think they have done a good job. They are shrewd business people but as much as we have been good for them, they have been good for us. The thing is we can't sit on our arse and miss out on generational players like Sancho. In the short term, big argument for not doing the deal. In the medium to long term, it completely makes sense. Listen to the players from the 60s, 70s and 80s and none of them felt safe no matter what they had won. Don't get me wrong I love the current team, but signing Sancho would keep everyone on their toes and send a gigantic message to the rest of the league. I will probably get panned for this, but if we sold Mo and bought Sancho and had 10-15 million left, you would have to think it makes more sense in the long-term. Wasn't he the lad that was supposed to be worth about 60 or 70 million. Another cracking piece of business by Man City there. Nothing suspicious at all about that!

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Think Sancho might be 12 months too early for us. I've no doubt that he is seen as an eventual replacement for either Mo or Sadio. He ticks all their marketing boxes, aside from being a potentially outstanding player. I do think the FSG/Jurgen gameplan was to get him for a good deal less in 12 months and essentially have the cost supplemented by a big sale. I hope this won't be a missed transfer that we could regret. Yeah United have a complete gobshite as manager, but if they buy 2-3 world class players to supplement some of their current team, they will have the makings of a really good team for their next manager. For a lot of the 30 years, we rarely spent money on top quality. The Mancs won't make the same mistake. Our team is boss, but I can't help but feel that 3 years of non-stop chasing trophies may take it's toll if not next season than the season after. Our team is pretty much all 28-30. Prime age but in the next 2 years, they will likely begin to suffer with injuries more. Don't get me wrong we have a far superior team and manager, but if we don't keep investing in the team, that considerable gap will shorten.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Reckon there's a few lads have a fucking whale of a time in Dubai right now all paid for with a beautiful looking bank account to boot as well.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I've had a change of heart over the past number of weeks. Football is secondary to the health of the population. They need to void the rest of the season and come September it should be safe to start the new season. I'm sure the other English clubs will be happy to sacrifice possible glory for the good of the public.

    If Ali was in goal against Athletico and Chelsea, we would still be on for the treble imo. That is the point though. We have about 13 top players and maybe 2-3 more potentially very good ones like Curtis Jones. Our squad depth is of concern. Yes maybe someone like Minamino will have a belter of a season and show his Salzburg form, but say we are without two of the front three for a period of time, you have to wonder where the goals will come from on a consistent basis. There won't be much improving the first eleven but having a really good number 2 goalie like Romero for an emergency or a really good forward who can step in is what we need.

    Dejan needs to be replaced for squad depth. Really rate Joe Gomez and I think he has a great future. However, I do think he has a good bit to learn. I think Matip and Virgil is currently our best combination. Problem is Joel is made of glass and if we lost Virgil for a period of time next season, we could be left with Joe and a very inexperienced defender. I think he is getting a free pass in the past number of weeks because the league was won, but his defending has been poor over the past number of games. Certainly if Dejan made some of those mistakes, he would be getting pelters.

    That Bowen looks a good player.

    Rolling back the years to that beautiful peno he gave away against us. Demonstrates why United should sell him and put the money towards Khoulabaly. If you build your club around guys like him it won't end well.

    Pogba should be worried. Keane and his labrador will be looking for blood after this.

    Fair enough Bob! Great team though. No disputing Xabi was outstanding. I just feel we only saw it in glimpses bar his final year. Quality player.

    All time Liverpool XI

    No doubting Alonso was a wonderful player especially at Real Madrid, but no chance he gets in a Liverpool team ahead of Terry Mac, Ronnie Whelan or Jan Molby. If you judge him what he was at Real Madrid though, I would say he was one of the best midfielders of his generation.

    Picking at the relegation carcass

    Krul is a great shout as back up keeper. A good experienced pro with good pedigree. Should Ali have an injury that keeps him out for 2 months or even an injury that keeps him out for a crucial qf Champions League game away at Bayern and Krul was in goal for us covering I wouldn't be scared shitless like with Adrian.

    De Gea looks in great form going off the pitch.
