    Trent Alexander-Arnold

    Looking at his reaction he’ll be doing well to start next season fit. Didn’t look happy at all

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Grealish (despite the idea he’s a bit of dickhead) solves a lot of our problems. Goes past players, can create and has a decent shot on him. Ideal to play against the teams who are sitting in defending deep against us. In the age range we look at usually as well. If their was some way we could get him in, ideally with Firmino going out, then that would make us a lot better

    We Need a New Striker - Who?

    He looks shite. Will fit right in

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    They don’t have a game in hand now. It’s 7 same games played. Unless you are taking into account our loss tonight which would be fair. If you carry that through the next 5 games we’ll probably be 15 behind them

    Takumi Minamino

    Because those 2 usually started wide and drifted in or where playing off a front man they didn’t have to hold the ball up as much. He’s been the lone frontman most of the time he’s been on the pitch (ignore last night playing with Origi who is now a hinderance) and he’s struggling to get into the game, he’s finding the space but can’t protect it. Same thing Firmino struggles with when he’s not on it. In glimpses though he looks a decent player

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Massive blow to lose him but we have other players who can play there. Getting Alisson fit and on the pitch is more important to the season as the drop off to the back ups there is even greater

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Not really much to be shitting ourselves over. He’s 2nd choice there, he’d be 5th choice here behind fabinho Not seen the young lad play but he doesn’t improve the first team either immediately looking at his numbers for valencia. Unfortunately I doubt that’s the end of the spending for them. Koulibaly could make a huge difference for them

    January 2020 Transfer Thread

    Whilst nothing would give me greater pleasure than watching Mane for the next 8 years and seeing him retire with us, he’ll be sold one day. Probably when he wants to go

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I’m not a member over there so can’t see that thread but I enjoy the updates provided here without having to wade through pages of shite! That was a very considered and thoughtful post by Big Duncs fod. I imagine he has been flayed by now

    January 2020 Transfer Thread

    As shit as it would be him leaving, you couldn’t argue it if he wanted to go. If we maintain our league form he’ll have won the biggest trophy in our history and be remembered as one of our greatest, he’s scoring at 1 in 2 and has done 4 seasons which is about par nowadays. I hope he fancies another couple of years here though as we’re currently at worst competing with Madrid like for like in Europe and he’s probably our 2nd most important player

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Lest we forget Martinez and koeman both got them in Europe. Without them we wouldn’t have had that Devine comedy

    He’s absolutely shite. Wouldn’t make our bench

    Man Utd (A) 20/10/19 - Premier League

    They were in the best form they’ve been in for years when we played them last season and we were in our worst form of the season at that point. They won’t have the same confidence and it looks like they’ve lost some togetherness. Will still be a tough game and I expect their crowd will be bang up for it

    Season Ticket Amnesty

    If this cuts down on touting which is rife at Anfield then fair play. They need to find a way to facilitate people sharing a season ticket and the owner still going regular. But to be honest the season ticket holders who haven’t been a game in years but rent it out because they like having a ticket with no intention of going again are stopping the waiting list moving so that’s a problem too. I hope they do something about that

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Sessegnon was underwhelming for Fulham last season considering the hype. I’m not overly worried short term but Pochettino is a good coach and could make him into a very good fullback. The reports reckon he’s going to play left wing initially though.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Moreno, Sturridge and now Lovren all gone. This is up there with one of our best transfer windows for outs no question. All contributed zero for a long time and in Lovrens case was a liability

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Lots of good stuff in here and we’re broadly in agreement. My post was in response to some cry arsing about our rivals strengthening. Some have but not significantly. We agree that we’re the 2nd best team in the country still next season. I want us to win it but in my eyes the key to that is taking at least 4 points off city ourselves rather than the other way round. We need a left back to back up Robertson, I think I said that in the original post. I would argue us getting Chamberlain back makes us stronger if he gets back to fitness and we have to let him try to do that. Same way we have to give Keita a go at being the player he’s meant to be. Brewster if he can sprint is better than Sturridge in my opinion. He was gone at the end. The point about the front 3 I also agree with but I don’t see anyone who comes in and sits on the bench. We’re not breaking our transfer record for a back up right winger who is 1/4 of the player Salah is. If Pepe does what Shaqiri did in his last season for Stoke people will say Pepe was a decent signing. We have Shaqiri. We have Origi who has shown improvement and we’re meant to be in for another versatile forward. Get them and we are better than last year. Beat city at home and get a point away and we’re close to winning it again

    In that case, we agree. They will get destroyed on the counter attack playing them 3 as they’re shit and don’t have the players behind to support being a Liverpool rip off

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    You're missing the point I’m trying to make J-V. You are correct we don’t get done on the counter but our keeper, backline and midfield are miles better than Arsenal. I’ll even say Gomez, Lovren, Keita, Milner and Chamberlain (our back ups arguably) are all better than any of Arsenal’s starters in their positions. None of their front 3 get in our team like for like either by the way. They’re a shit show of a team. They haven’t got the platform in defence or midfield to play that front 3

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I can’t see who has strengthened out of the teams we’re up against. Where are Arsenal playing Pepe? Front 3 with Lacazette and Aubameyang and they get destroyed in midfield by any team that can counter United have signed a right back and are selling 2 of their better players in Lukaku and Pogba Spurs are getting rid of their first choice full backs and signing a centre mid. Nothing ground breaking there, they lost 13 games last season. Chelsea have lost one of the top 5 players in the league City have brought a lad in who plays the same position as their most important player Nothing to worry about from our rivals. if we can get a back up full back at worst we’ll still be challenging for the league and European cup

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I wouldn’t measure Depay on his time at the Mancs. They had last season van gaal then first season Mourinho. Lad was on a hiding to nothing. you can see why we’d want him. Its nothing like Balotelli either. Balotelli was replacing Suarez as our main man. Depay’s replacing no one, just an option to change formation or off the bench. If Klopp wants him I’d back him to have a similar impact to Shaqiri. Solid, not spectacular and will contribute when needed

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I doubt he walks any time soon but he has tried to distance himself. He said something like “I believe in what my owner and my sporting director say, they tell me their is no problem and we are within the rules so I believe that”. When he said that I thought he was giving himself a bit of room to get off the hook with the “I’m only the coach” angle. if it’s happening he knows. They either think they’re too clever for everyone or plan to bully their way out of it. The arrogance with which they’re handling themselves probably suggests both. in some ways it’s a shame because they’re a good team on the field and his coaching and set up of them has been excellent. Helps when the dice are loaded granted

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Fuck them and all the other gobshites who want them to win it. We’re absolutely boss and they’re shit scared of us. People saying they’ll spend, yeah they will but the players they’ve signed haven’t been unbelievable. They make bad signings like everyone else. Plus their key players are all getting a little bit past it now, kompany, Fernandinho, D Silva and Aguero are a coming to the end of their peak. Who knows how they deal with another intense season Im gutted tonight but the one thing that I’m made up with is we’ve got Klopp and he’s the best manager in the game at creating a positive atmosphere and I know he’ll get the team going again. We’ll beat them home and away in the league next season and that will win us the league.
  24. I did read it and I get your point totally. It’s just if you told me now that we could have Klopp for 25 years and he would win what Ferguson did then I wouldn’t see those raised expectations post Klopp as a problem. It’s the making terrible football decisions that I see as the main problem (actually, it’s not a problem, i fucking love it happening to them) but agree the expectations are a handicap for any manager they bring in now until they win a couple of big trophies. Anyway, I’m borderline giving them credit for the Ferguson era and I’m not comfortable with that so fuck them! Hope they get the point Wednesday then never get a point again the gang of shit houses. Solskjaer is miles out his depth
  25. Ruined them? He made them what they are today. I don’t think he’s the issue. You never replace that. But replacing him with 4 below top level managers and having no recruitment policy is what has done for them. if they had got Guardiola and that back room team and structure then no one would be saying anything about Ferguson
