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

    Pundits

    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.

    Just commenting to help us get off this page so I don't have to see Tumble Dick again.

    Nike deal

    Sounds about right.

    Nike deal

    When is LeBron gonna pull his finger out do something. We got told that part of the reason we went with Nike was because of all their mega stars celebs and how they were going to help to promote us. Load of bollocks.

    Surely there's a young up and coming forward who could at least challenge Firmino. Firmino has a specific role obviously but we need to be able to mix things up a bit. At the moment it's Jota or Firmino or stick one of Mo or Sadio down the middle. It's all very samey. We should take a punt on a talented 20yr old if we are not going big. Anything has to he better than Origi and God forbid Ox playing up front for us.

    I reckon Haaland would score 30 league goals easily for us. Salah would still get his fare share. There's way to tinker with things to incorporate top players.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    There may come a time when Jurgen decides to change the way we play. Let's just say Haaland was a possibility next summer then maybe we would change tactics to suit. We're not going to have the same front three forever and maybe we won't find anyone to do that Firmino role well enough.

    Joel Matip

    Imagine(I know, I know)we got 30 league starts out of him this season? That we give us an amazing base to go close to the league this season. As long as we don't get ridiculous injuries elsewhere obviously.

    Just slap the money on Fiorentina's table and get Vlahovic signed. He will either be top drawer or complete Markovic.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Ideally our starting three don't pick up too many injuries, Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain stay fit and find some form, and Harvey Elliott excells when he gets a chance in midfield. Not sure how realistic that is though. Think we should have shifted Keita and brought someone to really challenge for a starting spot. Still time I guess.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    This full-quota excuse is a load of bollocks. Let's say we want two players, Saul and Vlahovic for arguments sake. Surely we are not going to let the opportunity pass just because we can't get every penny we want for Shaqiri and Origi? Irresponsible if we do. I think the most likely outcome is we will sell those players in the last day or two or deadline day and then bring in at least one signing.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Not at all. I don't want some Man City or Chelsea situation where we ridiculous sums every summer, but I think there's some wiggle room with regards to our transfer spend. I'm happy with a lot of what they've done. The revenues are obviously much better and they finally got the management side of things right when they brought Jurgen in, so I'm not someone who is anti-fsg. Take January for instance. If we had spent what needed to be spent and got our centre backs in early then the end of the season may have been a lot less dicey.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    No idea about the figures and what we should or shouldn't be spending but I suppose my main gripe with them is that when they sell us, they are going to make an absolute fortune so I think in the meantime they should increase the transfer pot a bit, at least for the odd massive talent. But they are business men and they run us as a business so that's not going to happen unfortunately.

    Nike deal

    I saw something similar to that black one on Twitter. But replace red bits with grey I think. A few people said they had bought it and it's some sort of special edition kit.

    Joel Matip

    Matip is such a good player and it's cruel that he Is so injury prone. The best we can hope for is that he fit enough to play twenty or so games at a high level as he doesnt seem to need much of a settling in period when coming back from injury. If he wasn't prone to injury, he'd be seen as the second best centre back in the league I think.

    The fees banded about for Wilson, Shaqiri and Gruijic don't seem very high. Chelsea have just sold some 21yr old who's been on loan to Swansea for around £20m.
