    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    Not that you'd know it reading this thread. He's been scouted for several years, he's had a huge team of analysts producing regular data and video reports on him, and Klopp rates him really highly. But a few people sitting about watching YouTube have grave doubts. Fucking hell.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    Just wait until he's had a pre-season here and, you know, been COACHED a bit before racing to decide what he can and can't do. The incoherence on here is ridiculous - it's great that we can buy top players but we've not bought a top player. Calm the hell down!

    Have you got the rest of this Minamino and Jota video, and what are they plugging this time - Quorn by the look of it.

    Sadio Mane

    'Why would I want 10 Ferraris, 20 diamond watches, or 2 planes?' Actually, the vast majority of players would ask the same question. Talk about overkill. I'm sure good old Sad has given oodles away, and good for him. Others have done it - even dear old Craig Bellamy, and he's Welsh, so he could be forgiven for concentrating on the goldfish tank built-into in the toilet seat and the leopard-print mini bar - and some with a bit more discretion, but hey ho. It would be perverse not to think he means well, even after this shit storm of a PR campaign.

    Sadio Mane

    He's foisted god knows how many LFC kits on to villagers. Seeing as how they all hate the club they can at last get rid of the wretched things. Maybe swap them for Everton ones.

    It's not like asking someone at Richer Sounds to keep the headphones on one side while you wait for some birthday money to arrive. If the club want the deal done it gets done now. We're still paying for some deals from two seasons ago.

    Loris Karius

    I couldn't give a toss about what videos he or his agency put out. That's not an integral aspect of the issue.

    Loris Karius

    It's never nice to see a player just fall apart. The way some fans were happy to ignore the basic brutishness of Madrid's players in order to add fictions to the facts to mock their own player wasn't appealing, either.

    Alternatively, replace the first three words with 'Off the bench,...'

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    I thought it was interesting that his England U21 manager said pretty much the same as Klopp - but rather worrying that he felt he still had to say it quite a few months after Klopp said it. He should have responded a bit better by now. Klopp last January: ' “I had a long talk last week with Curtis, ­because I love the boy and I love the potential he has. But we have to now really make the next steps and make sure that he fulfils the potential he has on the pitch. You have these kinds of conversations when you are not 100 percent happy with the moment. He’s young, very young, but from what I see his ­potential is just incredible. So we have to find a way to show that much more often. That’s where we are in Curtis’s development." Lee Carsley this week: ''It's important to me that Curtis doesn't play within himself. He's got to be the best player every day, every game. I think he can score more, I think he can assist more. When he gets in front of goal, he's got that quality. He needs to show it on a regular basis, consistently, for us. You'd like to have this conversation at the end of the camp where you're swooning about him, saying "what a player". I still think he's building his reputation with the Under 21s in that respect.'

    Which bit of him played? The philtrum? The left nipple? You'd be best advised to reserve judgment until you see the whole thing in action. Houllier passed on Ronaldo after scouting a game in which only his nose got a run-out and a quick dribble.

    ...Then there's the price of a pint - 20 pence! Twenty bloody pence!! Pack of fags - twenty-two pence! Watneys Party 4 - eighty-sodding-five pence!!! I just don't understand it...

    They want 50m euros. We want the same.

    Mohamed Salah

    I wonder if the Scots felt the same when Rush was scoring goals and Kenny was setting them up. Kenny didn't, because he was a grown-up and a proper team player who knew his own worth and appreciated what others did. These 'fan' stories are like hearing a 12 year old recount what was argued in the playground this week. If Sadio bothered less about dodging spots of champagne and cared more about real humility rather than just talking about it, he wouldn't be acting like such a tit. As for Salah, he's created a soap for himself that he is convinced others find endlessly fascinating rather than even duller than a Hollyoaks repeat.

    Other Football 2021/22

    On a vaguely related point: white boots - what say ye? Joel is the latest player to start wearing them, and it occurred to me: they're either great or terrible for VAR decisions. They'll stand out and make it easier for VAR to see when you didn't foul - good - but will also make contact easier to spot - bad. So I guess the answer is: either wear white boots and make sure you don't foul, or don't wear white boots. And now back to your advertised programme...

    Hey, Bobby, you just signed a contract to be Les Lawson's chiropractor. Enjoy!

    Yes. Out of interest, how many games per season did you watch them play?
