    Alisson Becker

    This. His mental strength and calmness is his biggest attribute I'd say. If he fucks up, he just gets on with it. Cool as the proverbial. It's something many keepers don't have.

    Alisson Becker

    That's when you know a keeper is good isn't it? You just expect him to perform. You never even think to worry about it. When we had karius,Mignolet, Reina, Westerveld etc You just hoped they didn't fuck up. Probably a bit harsh on Pepe as he started out really well and so did Dudek to be fair. Nothing like Ali though.

    Alisson Becker

    I agree. He's saved us countless times with his amazing one on one saves that only he can do.

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    Got a feeling he already has something set up, Spurs maybe? He'd be a great signing.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I tell you what, Alisson, Fabinho and Firmino must really bloody Richarlison. He's a massive tosser, an average player but perfect for Everton.

    Wolves (H) - Sun 22nd May 2022 (4:00pm)

    Martinez is probably the player you would definitely want in their starting eleven from our point of view. Not seen much of Olsen but I believe he's a bit shit.
  7. That was a massive error on the club's part. The plan must have been Konate in the summer and we couldn't have brought that forward for some reason. The fact that we waited for Matip to be injured and then left it until the last day to sort it was ridiculous. We should have either paid extra for Konate or brought Kabak and someone else in at the beginning of the month. Just free up our midfielders.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I'd rather us win fuck all for the next ten years with Klopp in charge than have that meff any where near us. Sanitised, robotic, cheating, fake, passion less fuck stains.

    Man City (A) - Sun 10th Apr 2022 (4:30pm)

    Bastard. Every game they've gone ahead in they've won this season , I believe.

    WTF is this abomination?

    Cringey as fuck.
  11. It does make some sense to give him these opportunities but when it comes to finals, we really should be starting our number 1. If he is as good as Klopp thinks then it's inevitable that he will have to leave unless Alisson wants a move or gets a bad injury.

    Joel Matip

    Wishful thinking definitely.

    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.
