  1. I keep hearing untied fans say ole will always be a legend but the thick bastards don't realise he's a legend to us all now. Literally every fan in England loves him. I'll never forget him and he'll always be in my heart. Right up there with fergie standing in the middle of the pitch with a microphone telling the fans to get behind Moyes. Fucking idiot. It's been a great 8 years.

    The shitness of modern football

    Showing a penalty shootout from behind the goal. Wtf is this shit! Who decided that would be a good idea. They love fucking around with the best sport in the world. VAR, 5 substitutions and now let's use a camera angle that gives you no clue if the penalty is going to be scored/ saved until you hear the crowd cheer. Fucking idiots
  3. Suarez was out of this world in that season we nearly won the league. The quality of those goals every week was on another level that won't be seen again, ever. But we still only won one League cup with him. Salah's goals and consistency has taken us to 2 European cup finals, won us the league, super cup, world club cup and nearly won us another league. He's still finding another level each year too. This season he's been incredible so far, improved passing, harder work rate, better awareness, better control. Salah for me all day long, he just keeps getting better.

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Aside from saving a few quid I do wonder about FSG's thinking behind the lack of investment these last couple of seasons. Obviously I understand the financial hit from Covid was hard on them last year but fans are back now, revenue is up, and all the signs point to no more lockdowns in the UK. The club has never been more commercially valuable. Why not build on that value. It's almost always been true that to make money you have to spend money. They have one of the best managers in the world but he might leave in 2.5 years and leave behind a hugely aging squad (we already are tbh) Dipping into their own pockets for £100 odd million this summer would not have killed them (the FFP laws have been relaxed this year due to the pandemic from what I understand). Buying one or two players for that amount and giving them 3 years to work with Klopp would have only benefited us in the long term. This in turn sets up the next manager, keeps Liverpool at the top end of the league and CL and would only raise the value of club (if they want to sell) I'm all for rewarding the current players with longer term contracts and we have a squad full of leaders and men but one more big player this summer gives everyone a lift in that dressing room and in the stands. Another attacker would have pushed the current strikers to perform and improve (Or regain form) It's almost like they are waiting for the Klopp era to end and start again from scratch. Which from a footballing and business decision is pretty bizarre.

    So your solution to beating teams who park the bus and sit deep, is to get the fastest football sprinter in the world, to use the 10 metres of space behind them and then cut the ball back in between the 11 players they have sat inside their own box?

    The pace and effort is still there but beating his man and close control still looked some way off. Especially from what it has been when he was at his peak. It's a confidence/mental thing with him at the moment. I love him and want him to recover his form but he still looks pretty far off that to me right now.

    I think we need a quick wide player who can beat his man. Mané doesn't look the same to me, his form was horrendous last year and he hasn't looked all that great in preseason. His confidence looks shot. We have to prepare for the future with all our front three approaching 30. Mané and Salahs pace won't last forever so we need quick players coming through. The Origi project hasn't worked and we need to sell him this summer. He's just not good enough and he isn't even young anymore. Bring in the Doku kid, it's worth the gamble, he might really progress in the next few years under Klopp. Along with Elliot, Jones and Gordon. We could be in a really good place in a few seasons in terms of young players

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Can't believe he's the Everton manager. Makes you wonder, would Rafa ever go to United if they offered him a job? Fair play to some of you for not caring but Rafa has ruined his legacy with Liverpool now for me. Fuck him, he just wants a pay day and doesn't care where he gets it. He's a good manager and he'll do well there with that squad and money (which they have) for new players. I think a few people are in for a suprise when Everton are in and around the top 4 come the end of the next few seasons.

    Yeah i was surprised by that at the time too. Once there were reports of him being shown around uniteds training ground i thought he was nailed on to go there. I guess he chose Dortmund because of playing time. I still think he'll end up at united though which is a shame because he looks like a real talent.

    I've played football with his dad loads of times, massive man united fan. He'll never come here. I think he'll end up at United at some point sadly

    Of course he's getting to that level. With the right manager and coaching behind him, he will only get better. He's playing in a top league, and is starting to show it at international level too. By people wanting Sancho or saying we should buy him doesn't shit on the achievements of the current squad. Our front three have done great, but can we really hope to drag another 2 or 3 years out of them? Salah and Mane are pace players and they are approaching 30. That pace won't last forever. We need tricky forwards who beat players to open up defences and spaces for us, and we have to look to the future. Evolution is buying a player like Sancho, he's young, gifted, quick, great passing ability and a better football brain than he gets credit for. People just don't see it or don't want to see it mate. Somebody also asked if he can do it in England and the prem? I mean the kid played here all his life and was brought up on the English game, to think he won't come here and be a huge success is crazy. Klopp has already put Salah and Van Dijk in the running for the Balon D'or, if he coached Sancho over the next few years he would absolutely get him to that level. His record with forwards is amazing. Our only hope is the Manc Goblin has no clue and Sancho doesn't progress under him like he would under Klopp. Yeah i agree, players like him don't come around very often and working under Klopp for a few years would put us in a great position going forward. You can't just sit on what you have and run it into the ground and re-build from the bottom up. Sancho would work his way into our team and in the coming seasons be ready to take over from Mane or Salah. I have backed the owners over the years but i do agree that they have the easiest of lives (compared to the other clubs). While i don't want our supporters protesting like those Manc dickheads, i do think they should spend money from their own pockets every once in a while. This is one of those times they should. They won't of course and we will miss out on the chance to sign an absolutely brilliant young player who would probably come to us if Klopp came calling.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold

    How can you not find leaving Trent out as significant? He has absolutely smashed the assists record from right back for 2 years and completely changed the way the position is played. His vision and passing range/ability from that position has never been seen before. Of course it's significant if he's not taken to a major international tournament.

    Ozan Kabak

    He's shit, it would be totally crazy to sign him. He's not good enough on the ball to play for a top side. That's why we did much better once we put Rhys Williams there, who is miles ahead of him in terms of passing and composure. He wasn't even that good a defender either, he was a liability and had bad positioning many times. Fuck him off and buy somebody else.

    Thiago Alcantara

    When the dust has settled and this season is over, with a good preseason behind us, i think we can all agree that you 3 will still talk a lot of shit
