    Joel Matip

    He's been amazing this season and is criminally underrated. A couple of posters on here said that if Joel and Virg could be on the pitch for most of the season then we would win the league. You can probably add Fabinho and Thiago to that list. So important for us to have that solid base.

    Alisson Becker

    Exactly. The modern game is so different now it's getting harder to compare players from different eras. Both amazing in their own right though.

    Police aren't doing anything about the Zouma incident apparently. What a fucking surprise.

    Mohamed Salah

    Even if it is 400k per week, it's better value than paying someone like Oxlade Chamberlain 120k per week as he plays so little and performs well less than that. Add the likes of keita, Minamino etc and it's a false economy.

    Takumi Minamino

    Haaland was always going to go to a club a tier down from the very top. He seems to be one of those players who is so good(similar to Mbappe)who have their entire career mapped out for them by their agent so they can maximise their wages and signing on fees. By going to Dortmund he has shown the big boys what he can do in a top league and with the added bonus of his release fee he can clean up money wise.

    Who's your favourite footballer ever?

    He was actually only 29 when we signed him so he should really have had years of quality left in him but I think i read he had dodgy knees/ankles. I think if we had signed him in 96 or 97 it would have transformed us as Fowler or Owen would have thrived under that type of player.

    Who's your favourite footballer ever?

    Yeah he did mention he was a fan growing up and originally wanted the number 7 shirt as Kenny was his favourite. He didn't seem like a natural athlete but his football brain combined with his technique was what made him a great player. It wasn't meant to be as I don't think the Houllier tactics got the best out of him and by then I think injuries had caught up with him.

    Who's your favourite footballer ever?

    Jari Litmanen. As A kid I used to buy World Soccer magazine and I read about this amazing Ajax player from a place I'd never heard of with a cool name. So from then on I followed his career. Loved watching him in the Champions League. Really wanted him to join Liverpool so was gutted when he left on a free to Barcelona. A couple of years later I had finished work in town and picked up the Echo only to see we had signed him. Never been happier with a signing and I loved the way it came out of the blue, not like these days. When he made his debut you could just tell that he was on another level to the other players when it came to awareness on the pitch. His weight of pass and how he seemed to have a lot of time on the ball. It never really worked out for him here and its such a shame we didn't sign him years earlier. Apparently Roy Evans wanted him but couldn't get it done due to lack of funds.

    Aston Villa (H) – Sat 11th Dec 2021 (3:00pm)

    Don't think much can be read into how Gerrard approached the match. It surely takes a while to get the players accustomed to a new manager's style and tactics. Let's see how he does over the next couple of seasons.

    Ozan Kabak

    I've not seen any of him this season so don't know how he's getting on but he did enough for us to suggest he can be a decent player in a top league. If he would have been happy with it I think we should have signed him and then sent him on loan for a couple of seasons. He'd then either be good enough for our squad or to be sold for a good profit. Oh and the song.

    Love Rafa, always will. For what he did for us as our manager and what he did and does for this city. He's a good man. I get why he took the Everton job although it was doomed from the start if we are being honest. I don't have a problem with what he said in the interview, like Boss said he is just highlighting the fact he's had fuck all to spend.

    Haha Mo expected that scrote to make a mistake. Gotta love him.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Yeah I kept reading that in the Echo. They said the investment wouldn't give us any extra transfer funds but would allow us to carry on as normal. But then they would go on to say how hard up we were and thats why we didn't have much money for signings.

    That's a shame, was looking forward to fighting for that second from bottom place.

    I used to be a bit anti-Merson but I think he's a decent fella who's had a few ups and downs and he does chat a load of shit but then so do 99% of pundits. He was good player too.

    Three at the back

    I liked John Scales. Shame that he fell out of favour and then suffered a lot of injuries. The less said about the other two the better.

    January 2022 Transfer Thread

    I think Barcelona have an option to extend Pedri's contract for a year which they will obviously do. He does look a player though.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    I've only seen him play one match but I'm all in on Vlahovic. Big bastard that scores goals. Not sure how it would work with Mane/Jota and Salah either side of him and whether he can press enough etc but he continues to get goals and seems physically imposing. Would brining someone in like that impinge of Mo's goal output or is there a way to tinker with the system without fucking everything up?

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    There's definitely players who can challenge to get into the front three. Firmino has been iffy over over last couple of seasons and Mane hasn't been the same for a while(still scoring though). Jota has come in and down really well. Ox is terrible up front, Minamino has it all to prove and the less said about Origi the better. I have a feeling that we've seen the best of Bobby so it would be interesting if we went out and got a forward who would score more goals. Not sure if this would impact of the goalscoring of Mo and Sadio though.

    Joel Matip

    Second best centre back in the league I reckon. So underrated outside of the club but will mostly be because of the injuries I guess.

    Sounds about right.
