  1. We are going to win this league. Not even the world's most deadly virus ever, can stop us. Some team klopp's built this
  2. I think people need to calm down a bit. There is no way we aren't going to get our hands on this trophy. Either they are going to give it to us or they will play the remaining games. I'd prefer to win it ourselves and have the joy of that moment though, in a stadium with our fans there. Being robbed of that after all these years would piss me off. They could never void the season and say you're not champions though. We are too much of a global powerhouse. There would be a shit storm worldwide and i doubt they'd want the headache. Remember what happened when we won the champions league and finished 5th? Everybody went mental and Uefa had to bow down. The premier league wouldn't damage their own brand with one of the biggest clubs in the world who are 25 points clear at the top of the table. We are going to see Henderson lift that trophy one way or another, I'm 100% sure of it.

    Naby Keita

    He's too slow and not powerful enough for this league. It's that simple. If you're going to be that small you have to be quick in the premier league or at least strong. He's neither. He knows it too and it forces him to take up positions where he doesn't get exposed, much to the detriment of the team. He should have been hooked at half time. His lack of effort or inability to sprint back for their 2nd goal was shocking.

    Our front three

    Werner is 5ft 9 and Sancho is 6ft. Plus i think Sancho will fill out more and get stronger as he gets older. Werner is going to be 24 next month, I'm not sure how much more his body is going to develop now. He looks slight in frame to me. Shorter players have to have unbelievable talent to make it in the premiership. Hazard, Salah, Mane and even Sterling showed their talent from a very young age. I'm genuinely asking if Werner has that level of talent to play in attack for the best team in the world? I admit i don't watch him every week but i definitely watched him in the last world cup and he really struggled. He was quite poor against a deep lying defence, which we face most weeks in the Premiership. I'm happy to be proven wrong but does he show star qualities and do things on the ball that make you sit up and notice him? I don't think he does. Salah at Basel did, Chelsea he got Mourinho'd and then at Roma he looked good again. He's also quick as fuck and strong as an ox. Mane, super quick, constantly beating players with dribbles and showed at Southampton that he produced moments that made you sit up and notice his ability. Show me where Werner does this? (btw its a genuine question, im happy to be proven wrong on this but i just haven't seen it personally) Sancho definitely does this. He's even had moments in an England shirt where you think wow, this kid is super talented. I'm not saying he is the best player ever, but he has all the ability and star quality and we have the manager to nurture it. Exactly. I watched an interview with Melissa Ready where she said we are happy to spend big on "transformers" meaning players who will instantly make us better in any given position. Like Alisson and Van Dijk. Will Sancho make us better? I'm not sure but he definitely won't be a step down on what we already have and we are going to have to rebuild that front 3 soon. We have Jones, who i think is a quality player and has a great chance at making it here. Add Sancho to the other wide forward position now and in 2 years time we have already gone a massive way to re-building that front line. With Elliot getting better and better too. I just think if we don't sign Sancho now and let him go somewhere else it will be a mistake, we are in our strongest position for 30 years and can pretty much get our pick of the best young players in the world. These players don't come around very often and we have the best manager in the world at developing them. Barcelona had the best front 3 in the world a few years ago, now look at them. They let one go, and two have age'd, all of a sudden they are vulnerable and scratching around panicking and signing anybody to fix the issue.

    Our front three

    Following on from the discussion in the transfer thread, i thought i'd see what peoples opinions are on what we do next season with our front three? Afcon, olympics, Euro's, Copa America will all take it's toll on our squad/attackers next season i think. Mane will be 28, Salah 28, Firmino 29 and they would have played together for 3 seasons here. Speed players don't last as long as others and the drop off is usually faster. I think next year would be a great time to freshen up the attack and look towards our next re-build of sorts. Don't wait for the decline, change when your at the top. That cunt fergie was a master at it. Sell Salah and get Mbappe would be my choice but i don't think we'd smash our wage structure like that. Even if i do think he'd come and i reckon we can afford the fee. We kept our powder dry last summer and i think we have the money to go big in the summer. Talk is of Werner but, as i said in the transfer thread, is he really an elite level attacker? He isn't mane or Salah quick, he's fast but we need blistering speed for our system. It's what makes it work and the drop off in performance is noticeable when either of those two are out. They can beat players with skill/pace/dribbling. Is Werner anymore skillful than Oxlaide or Minamino? I don't think by much and i don't think he's any quicker either. Don't get me wrong, he's a good player but does he have the potential to be one of the best int he world? I'm not so sure. We've seen Kieta struggle with the strength and pace of the league at times and i think Minamino will find it hard too. Will Werner be the same, he looks quite small and slight in frame. That's why i think we should get Sancho. He's 19, great acceleration, skill, dribbling and has huge potential to get even better. He's also tall and will get only get stronger and knows English football. With City fucked, will he want to go there now? Chelsea just bought Ziyech and have Hudson Odoi & Pulisic. Spurs are shit, United are shit and he won't go to Leicester. We should be all over him and i hope we get him. There was a time 5 years ago when players like that would never choose Liverpool over some of those clubs, but not anymore. Klopp will be here for 4 more years and has a great track record with attackers. Sancho would only be 24 then. For me it's the perfect signing and makes the most sense. What is peoples opinion? Would you keep the front three together next year and add another good player like Werner to rotate in and out. Or would you try and add another potential superstar and really go for it and put pressure on each of them for their place?

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Werner or Sancho? Am i the only one who'd prefer Sancho? Werner doesn't look that great at anything. Decent pace, decent touch, decent finisher, decent passing, decent/good player. Sancho seems to have star qualities, exceptional touch, dribbling, speed. He's also taller and will only get stronger as he gets older and fills out. Plus he understands the league more and has played in England and it's his home. Why are we going for Werner?!

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    I'd rest almost all the players that played against Sheffield. Maybe only play Milner. We looked dead against Wolves in the last 20 minutes and I'm surprised how well we played yesterday. Fuck, it's our best chance in 30 years to win the league. Giving them players 9 days off up to the Spurs game could be the difference in us winning the league & champions league again and maybe even going invincible. Fuck the F.A cup, we can win it next year.
  11. He's been immense all season. Finally winning that big trophy in the summer has got that monkey off his back and he's really kicked on and gone up a level. He's been playing with swagger and like a Liverpool captain should. Many of us had our doubts but i couldn't be more happier for the guy, he deserves it. He's earned his plaudits through sheer hard work and determination. Those video's of him and his dad showed just how much pressure he was carrying and now that weights been lifted, he's proving what a good footballer he is. We're lucky to have him. He's an excellent role model, leader and the best player in the world at appealing for a throw in. For me, it's come full circle and i love seeing him lead the team out of the tunnel every week now. He's worked for his spot in our history and set an example for all the younger players in our academy to follow.
  12. Still shit then. Thanks for the 3 points you took off City, fuckers. I love this Ole, he is the ultimate false dawn manager. Win sometimes, get everyone's hopes up, insert belief and fist pumps towards whiskey face "we don't need a new manager....give ole time" Lose. Shit, maybe he's not right. Win. repeat. cunt. Sing feed the scousers. See you next year. Remember when they laughed at our "transfer committee"? Not laughing now are you...

    Boxing 2019

    Anyone know what time this is meant to start in the UK? I've heard some people say 11pm and today people are saying the ring walk is scheduled for 8.45pm?
  15. Was talking to some manc mates about this last night. Ole is under zero pressure right now, it's weird. The media and all his buddies like Scholes, Ferdinand, Neville, Keane etc aren't turning the screw like they did with Moyes, Van Gaal and Mourinho. Even many of the fans aren't screaming for his head. If he never stuck out his leg in 99 he'd be nowhere near that job. The prick scored a tap in and got one of the biggest job's in the world. It's giving him so much more time and allowing him to continue the decline. He'll only get sacked if they are around 13/14/15th after Christmas, im sure of it. At which point they're in a relegation battle. Then there's only two people the board can get to save them. Fat Sam or Tony Pulis. Just sit back and imagine that for a minute. FAT SAM or TONY PULIS managing Manchester United. Hahahahhahahaha
