    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I've been wondering about all of this. It's a bit macabre but it does seem an awful situation. I mean, if you went to a shop and bought a television, but then after you'd paid for it it was broken before you could leave the shop you'd probably complain and ask for your money back. Obviously it's different with an actual person but from a purely financial sense you can see the argument. Although I suppose Nantes' argument will be that once he's signed the contract with Cardiff he's their player and they owe the fee, regardless of what happens afterwards. Which is probably valid, it just seems really hard luck on Cardiff.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    It's a bit of a relief looking at our squad needs this summer; whereas before it's been "well, we can patch one or two of the five holes we have" at this point it's just getting a bit of depth and getting a bit younger so we can look to the future somewhat. In terms of first XI, we're basically set. If you look at the bench it's a longer list but obviously, because you're talking about the bench, it's less urgent. Obviously we need a backup LB, it'd be nice if he was also capable of backing up RB as well. Some sort of versatile forward option that could play 2 different positions up front is lacking, and then the CB situation as we're discussing. For me if we're looking at CB it'd be great to get a younger player who isn't far off Gomez' level, i.e. a step above Lovren/Matip, but hopefully more durable than young Joe. Then we can sell one of them and have it be VVD/Gomez/Player X/Matip, for example, with Phillips and Hoever the emergency or Cup players. It's really too bad we never followed through on Akanji who's now at Dortmund, he would have been ideal for the sort of player I'm talking about. I think the likes of Militao and de Ligt are now out of our price range (assuming we're also targeting Werner up front - I really don't think we're getting two 50m+ players this summer). Maybe Diallo or Zagadou off Dortmund? Or go back in for Tah, his reputation seems to have cooled and presumably he wouldn't be huge money. I love the idea of Upamecano but Leipzig are hard to deal with. Anyway, I'm not sure exactly who it should be but I know Edwards will have a list and a good idea. Then just pick someone who's available for whatever-we-get-for-Lovren-plus-10m.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I'd have Brandt for sure but if we're buying someone from Leverkusen it should be Havertz. Would be perfect for us in terms of fitting our needs and is going to be an absolute star in a few years.
  4. Maybe I should put this in the Amnesty thread but my main hope for Gerrard at Rangers is that he fails so badly there it ends all talk of him ever becoming Liverpool manager. I don't know how many more examples we need that the qualities that make a great footballer and the qualities that make a great manager are completely different. Of course there are the rare examples of people who have both but the list of top footballers who have failed as managers is very, very long. And even if he does do OK, or even pretty well, it's very unlikely he'd ever be in the top 10 mangers in the world at any point.* My main fear is that he'll do just well enough that it'll be arguable that he be considered for the job at Liverpool and that we'll see him come in at some point when we don't have any other serious contender. I can't take going from loving Gerrard to seeing him as a tragic figure like what happened with Souness. *Obviously in the extremely unlikely event that it turns out that he wins absolutely everything in Scotland and he really IS one of the top 10 managers in the world, it would be brilliant to have him here. But only in that case, I don't want to hear about it if his main qualification is "well, he knows the club, Liverpool legend and all, and what he really needs is to be given some top players, that's why he couldn't do it at Rangers, besides, he did win some minor trophies there ..."
  5. I am totally open to discussing hypotheticals as a way to get through a dull week without football, but this hypothetical is way, waaaaay too far out there. Might as well ask what kind of stadium we should build if Anfield spontaneously combusts over the summer, or whether it's feasible to move LFC to somewhere still in the EU after Brexit.

    The ‘Buy Timo Werner’ Campaign

    Not enough Youtube on this thread:

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    It would be brilliant, wouldn't it? You can easily see how it would happen as well. They sign him up as a "statement of intent," get all the media talking about them, their fans would be buzzing. Then they sell Richarlison for big money, Jose spends the money on some over-the-hill attacker like Perisic, by October he's giving interviews about how he "wanted to buy Dybala but the board didn't give me the money they'd promised." Before Christmas he's publicly falling out with Pickford and Keane and he's sacked in January (earning a huge payoff, of course) with the squad in complete disarray and them 16th in the table.

    Was just sat here thinking "wonder if Chelsea might do us a huge favour in the title race tonight" and then I remembered that they lost 4-0 the other day to that same dreadful Bournemouth side we faced yesterday.

    Mohamed Salah

    Exactly. He's our best player, and we are best as a team when he gets the ball more. He gets the ball more, and influences the game more, when he's played on the right. I'm sure Jurgen will mix it up depending on the opposition but I think we're best when he's played there.

    Mohamed Salah

    Said this at halftime but he's much better coming in off the right: Raj Chohan‏ @rajsinghchohan 25m25 minutes ago Salah as a striker vs Leicester: • 42 touches • 23 passes Salah as a striker vs West Ham: • 47 touches • 29 passes Salah back on the right wing vs Bournemouth: • 77 touches • 43 passes

    Big fan of my stream going straight from the Reds win to cut to the end of the Everton game just in time to hear the Watford fans serenading Silva with a chorus of "You're getting sacked in the morning." Big, big fan.

    Bournemouth (H) 9/2/19 - The Match Thread

    Is it just me, or does Salah look SO much better coming in off the right? I know we've been exceptional this season with him up front for most of it, but IMHO that's down to our defense more than our attack being quite at the levels we found last season. Today we, and in particular our attack, just looks like it did last season. Keita and Gini looking good replicating a lot of what Oxlade-Chamberlain brought last season but mostly it's down to the front three being played in the positions they look most threatening in. Anyway, more of the same, Reds. Let's take this 3- or 4-0 and just be comfortable.

    It's going to be perfect if it's a tremendous run, but juuuuuust short of good enough to get them top four. Then they appoint Solskjaer permanent manager ("on the strength of that run how can you ignore him?") and we get to see them flounder for a couple more years.

    It's right here, mate. Edit: Replying to Heinze above, this is the link to the page on bluemoon's game thread where Newcastle score.
