    The move came to soon for the lad and he must have been under immense pressure to perform. Mistakes lead to a confidence issue and he seemed to be totally shot in that respect. I'm not sure his loan move to Beskitas will help him in that respect either, he should have gone back to a German club on loan and rebuilt his confidence in a land and leagues he knows. 

    Agreed. Klopp is to blame as well though, He persevered far too long with the lad when it was self evident he was a walking disaster. I hope he has learned the lesson that if you make a bad signing don't double down on the mistake just cut and run.

    I thought he played OK, linked up play well and was for ever having to drop deep to get the ball due to the lack of creativity from Milner and Henderson. The opposition were also a huge step up from Newcastle and for whatever reason we always seem to struggle against them. Hopefully we trounce the fuckers at Anfield, a repeat of the 5-0 friendly scoreline before the start of last season will do. 

    He was just about OK imo and you're right about the quality of the opponents. He just isn't the same player when he is forced to come deep to get the ball.

    Fucking Hell!  I hate the cunt, but even I'm not sure I'd stand up in court and describe him by one of the names of the Devil.

    John 8:44 New International Version (NIV)

    44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.



    If the cap fits 

  4. I doubt the fat fuck will like being labelled the "Father of Lies" in the Supreme Court..



    Afternoon summary

    • The supreme court has been told that “the mother of parliaments [is] being shut down by the father of lies”. (See 4.12pm.) Aidan O’Neill QC, counsel for the SNP MP Joanna Cherry and the other parliamentarians challenging the government’s decision to suspend parliament for five weeks, delivered the jibe against Boris Johnson as he wound up his speech to the court this afternoon. As well as accusing Johnson of lying, O’Neill said Johnson and his government could not be trusted not to engage in “low, dishonest, dirty tricks”. (See 3.25pm.) O’Neill’s speech was easily the most passionate and outspoken of the four submissions heard so far by the court in this case, although at times there were hints that some of the judges were finding him unduly histrionic. With just one day left of the hearing, it is hard to assess which side is likely to win. O’Neill and his team do not seem to have persuaded the court that the five-week prorogation has fatally damaged the ability of parliament to scrutinise the Brexit process; the fact that MPs passed the Benn bill, supposedly stopping a no-deal Brexit on 31 October, during the September sitting seems to have worked as an effective argument against the claim that parliament has been silenced. But interventions from judges also suggest that they are open to the argument that the PM’s power to prorogue parliament should be subject to some constraints. (See 11.02am and 11.12am.) This has fuelled speculation that the court may deliver an equivocal ruling that might effectively amount to a “don’t do it again” warning to the prime minister. (See 12.24pm.) But that is pure speculation. No one knows.

  5. Just about calmed down from last night. Game fully under control and we throw it away.

    Maybe Robbo should have sat it out with hindsight. He did nothing much going forward and whilst it wasn't a pen it wasn't smart to give the ref a decision to make. He just didn't seem 100 percent to me.

    Main fault though was the wasteful play by the forwards. Bobby was the polar opposite of the player we saw on Saturday.

    The Brexit "party" are starting to slag off Boris Johnson. Good news for Labour? If BJ can't deliver Brexit by the 31st, you'd like to think that the leave vote will start to split between Tories and Brexit and the migration of leave votes from Brexit to Tory will practically be wiped out?



    The reality is we're not leaving on October 31st despite the good intentions of the Prime Minister. He is being prevented by the Parliamentary games being played in Westminster. The Brexit Party is campaigning for a clean-break Brexit. Boris can't deliver.



    It's called democracy you Fascist cunt. Minority of people do not want a crash out and Parliament are working in their interests .

    I was thinking that myself, either them or United. Probably end up paying way over the odds as well. 

    No doubt they will pay through the nose. He seems a leader at the back which is what City need but it's probably a step up too far too soon but he fits Utd latest policy of recruiting young British talent . May well turn out to be a top player in a better team.  I would have him here if we needed another CB.
