    Euro 2020 Round Up (Final)

    Great write up! Decent enough tournament but FFS the group stages had some dull games..meaningless, it was like trying to get out of qualifying for the Europa League. The Danes won 1 game and finished 2nd in group (I was chuffed as other half a Dane, but ridiculous). I think Southgate has been flattered to death...the football is so bland. Irony was I expected the defence to be their undoing but going forward, only Sterling impressed and like his mate Kane the ice on the grass was a problem for him. 5 Defenders, 2 Defensive midfielders in Final. At the outset I expected to see Grealish behind Kane, then Mount, Sancho, Foden, Rashford having a real go in games, granted it worked to a large extent results wise, but I think other side of draw would have exposed them more. Fckin Declan Rice, Harry M and Pickford are the backbone... All bar one game away against a Ukraine side that would struggle to qualify out of the Championship and talk now of winning the World Cup...he had it on a plate in 2018, lost to 2 decent sides Belgium and Croatia and this time with that Home advantage going 1-0 up in Final and then spewing up 66% possession against a defence that had a pairing aged 70. I thought Italy were outplayed by Spain in the semi but on the whole the best side throughout, with some good players and some mediocre also. Hats off to Mancini though, they entertained, which is not something you associate with the Italians..albeit Chiellini entertainment with his shithousery stood out!

    Naby Keita

    Oh he exists alright, that’s the fcking problem! More noteworthy for his injuries unfortunately than the football!

    Diogo Jota

    Aye, given the season he would probably have picked one up in training the following day! He was a serious loss. Hopefully pick up where left off..serious player we have.

    Diogo Jota

    Still have to carry ID around with me to get served. You never had that worry...with that bar allergy!

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    He's top drawer but beyond reach of Liverpool now..same with Mbappe...only way sign players like that is Abu Dhabi or Roman take over.

    Diogo Jota

    I’m nearly 49 so I have an excuse. Klopp would still get more value out of me than Keita!

    Diogo Jota

    He may have tripped over the injured Matip while farting!

    I'm sure if you go back to the real glory days you will sift through clusterf*ck after clusterf*ck. Those teams used to bounce back and i think this lot will also. Too good not to!

    Brighton (H) Premier League - 3/2/21 - 20:15

    Apparently VVD, got all clear..could start tonight...that help? Whatever team w put out we should be able to beat Brighton, hopefully momentum of previous games will stand to us. Moyes and Jose, teams sit back and maybe Brighton will put more pressure on us. Could give a bit more space for Mo and Co though.

    Brighton (H) Premier League - 3/2/21 - 20:15

    He wasn't the only one that day in fairness, sleepiest performance by so many. They are decent in possession and movement is good, strange side, well coached but results/points tell a story also.

    May have a mistake in him but don’t they all!! Quick, decent in air and capable of nodding one in at other end. Throw in Neto also and let’s make Wolves out next Southampton! They can keep Coady!!
  12. Yes and Firmino into Midfield and Origi on pitch is even worse...what we need is the 3 up front to start hitting the net and do best with the centre half problem...less farting around elsewhere the better!

    Haven't seen him since, off to the gallows, so no idea if outlier or not. Agree the movement was excellent, I thought he might start in next couple of games and rotation would help. Klopp is pretty loyal to the front 3 on the whole, I only hope they wake up from their slumber. A ricochet, Own goal, dodgy pen or even a fckin VAR decision like City offside would suffice!

    Thanks for clarifying, I was beginning to think I was missing something. Does the Opta defined clear cut chance still count if Harry Maguire blocks said chance, I'm just not up to the Opta shit. I just saw Firmino have a few miserable efforts on goal but the one thats actually blocked I wouldn't blame him for. However after reading the article I've now come to the conclusion that maybe it's all Thiago's fault!! I hope BW wiped his arse with the article!!

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    They should be ecstatic! Although when I look at table and next run of fixtures they could be top of the bottom half in no time again. Their cry baby in chief ‘James’ has been out for last 3/4 games I think and Gylfi Sig has done well for them. Once he comes back and cold weather and losses kick in he will show why Madrid, Munich had no problem letting him go.
