    Harvey Elliott

    You only had to look at the other clubs tracking him when he was at Fulham to know he had more about him than the average prospect. There’s no absolute guarantee he’ll reach top-tier heights long-term, but I don’t think the precedent of Klopp loanees not making it at the club is relevant here; he’s 17 and would struggle for games now we’re out of the League Cup, but the fact that he’s already getting starts for a top-half Championship team bodes well.

    Midtjylland (H) Champions League - 27/10/20 - 20:00

    Given the league fixtures that follow our next two CL games, I’d much rather see us go all out to win this one and rest players for the trip to play Atalanta.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I was surprised by how little adversity was required to send him into a gale-force meltdown. He sounded like a Trump tweet.

    It’s like I said a few weeks ago: once they start dropping points, the blue mirage will fade away and something closer to normal service will be resumed. In the event of a low points tally being required to win the league this season, I think Crackle’s Adult Disneyland has a far greater chance of fluking something nightmarish than Everton.

    Van Dijk “injuring” Mr. Instagram?

    Sheff Utd (H) - Premier League - 24/10/20 - 20:00

    Part of it is down to a bad clash of styles for us, and today we had to come back from an outrageous penalty decision after having made a fast start. Combined with a ludicrous schedule and the injuries we’ve suffered, I think we’ve come out well from a very tough week. I really think we’re going to have to make sacrifices in the CL though. If we beat Midtjylland, I’d prefer to see a heavily altered starting XI for the Atalanta away game.

    If you give the penalty, you should be giving that. No question.

    This behaviour from the officials is not going to diminish the probability of a breakaway league, that’s for sure.

    Need to go to ground at every opportunity, even when not fouled. Even with the corrupt officials, something will get given.

    Nah, mostly the irrefutable corruption as a result of our part in Project Big Picture.

    I’m not surprised that he’s been so good - he was great against Bayern away when Van Dijk was suspended (snuffed out Lewandowski en route to another clean sheet!). Now, I’m not suggesting he’s a better defender than VVD because I don’t think anyone currently playing the game is, but there have been signs that he is potentially a world class centre back in his own right. This isn’t a fish out of water situation, because he only moved to midfield in 2015. Admittedly he was primarily a right-back before then, but I think he’s obviously just a brilliant defensive player across several positions.

    Alisson Becker

    It’s like someone with normal length arms cut off Pickford's and attached them at the wrists.

    Ajax (A) Champions League - 21/10/20 - 20:00

    Wasn’t vintage, but...I’ve seen us look worse at full strength in plenty of easier European away games over the last couple of seasons. Get Alisson back, stop him from injuring himself all the time and I have a feeling we’ll be fine - even more so when Thiago returns.
